I'd like to see a rom pak PCB that is designed to load a larger game file.
I personally don't see the point of loading all the old 8K/16K rompaks
into a multi-pak considering that all the ROMS are available as a DSK
ready to be loaded from drivewire, CoCoSDC etc.
Any games I write for the CoCo3 are going to be larger than the 8K/16K
rom size anyway so I am currently restricted to loading them as DSK's.
I do like the idea of a game available on a ROM Pak. Makes a nice
collectible in years to come.
How did Mark Seigel "design" this Rom Pak? It's basically a copy off a
standard ROM Pak from the 80's isn't it?
