or have I got my Rom1 and Rom2 lines swapped around?
Hi,

/ROM2 for A13 is correct (at least for the "swapped" ROMs)
but you wrote you use /ROM1 OR /ROM2 as /CS or /OE => correct should be /ROM1 AND /ROM2

This might work?
Hi, it looks plausible...

PS: if this should be external the diodes need to be schottky diodes (with a low voltage-drop)... like in Chesh´s keypad-replacement

Re: Laser 2001 & Salora Manager - official thread

I finally got an original Joystick for the Laser 2001, to use on my Salora ;0)

It will need some Retrobrighting (i will do some lightbrighting as soon as the sun comes out :0))

Yes, all games can be started with "6" or "B" (i have not tried "T" or "G" on all games) Some Games start with any key from the LEFT Pad, some (like Astro pinball) even start with any key on LEFT or RIG...
