Author of software – Andreas Rust (Countzero) – speaks
Although the hardware will be available in a few days, there will be more time passing by until the software is at the stage I want it to be. Mainly work has to be done on loaders, tass and sprite-char-editor, but there are tons of tweaks which still need implementation.
Another drawback: the RR will handle the C128 the following way: when turning on or resetting, a C128 will be taken to 128 mode unless you don't hold cbm pressed. The RR software will check for a pressed run/stop key to determine wether to go fastload or not. But, there will be a hardware patch published aswell, which allows the followoing behaviour then: pressing the 128 reset takes you to 128 mode, pressing the carts reset, will take you to 64 mode. I rather wanted this in the first place, but we somehow became late on integrating it into the hardware.
This is an answer of Countzero on my adtional questions. I expected the software for this cartridge to be worked on, it's already stressed in specifications. Still I would be interested to know how much of the productivity tools of original AR are working. Stay tuned for more. (CreaMD)
