Commodore bang bang


Recommended Posts

I'm in the midst of adding a second drive to an SX64, and I actually couldn't remember how to backspace as I fumbled through typing 'Load "*",8,1' about a half dozen times before I got it right. Anyways, I thought it would be great if the machine had a bang-bang sequence like the old Silicon Graphics Irix machines had, so for the hell of it I typed '!!' and was left in a strange environment, some kind of monitor maybe. A search on Google yielded no explanation. Does anyone have a link to how to use this monitor built into the SX64 rom?

I've never heard of that before. Can you repeat it? I downloaded the SX-64 Kernel and tried in emulated environment, but the only thing that happens is a ?SYNTAX ERROR. Perhaps your computer is customized?


Anyway, you could use a fastloader cartridge with the SX-64 and get an automatically enabled DOS wedge. You could also upgrade it with JiffyDOS, but that is a more complex and costly solution if you only need a wedge.

Which SD card device is that? The sd2iec firmware has repeatedly been mentioned as being compatible with Epyx Fastload, and one reseller even offers custom made Epyx replicas.I don'

I don't know which one it is, but it is a SD2IEC. We couldn't get it running until we took the fastload out.
