Way to test Rambo XL 256k Memory upgrade? And Q about file conversions

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Wondering if there was a small basic program or something I can load through my S-drive MAX that tests the Rambo XL memory?

 

Also, Is there a PC utility to convert Atari 8bit files such as .com, .rom to .XEX or other file extensions?

thanks,

 

t

im not aware of a basic program but these 2 are commonly used:

XRAM021.COMSHORTEST.COM

 

you can use altirra to add them to a bootable .atr disk image to load on the SdriveMAX

I seem to remember a caveat about XRam and a Rambo 256k upgrade... IIRC, I think the first bank of extended memory would show a problem even when one didn't exist.  Now this makes me want to pull out a Rambo 800XL and test...  I will.

 

 

See?
