Hi kevgal,

Thanks for the information!
I do not think there ever was any program, that used the 16k expansion ;0)
You can Peek and Poke to the additional RAM, but the standard BASIC Cart, does not recognize more RAM...
Future Gamecarts could use your additional (and fast) RAM (like madrigal mentioned) or using the CSL Cart, one could use this RAM for DATA or little Machinecode routines...

Great work! TOM:0)

I can't add images to posts, do they need to be under a certain size?

Yes Tom, this memory is great for MAP`s or better for self modifying code.
I use the standard ram now for my soft-sprites in ColorMaze with a little self modifying code.
With extra RAM is a lot more possible!

Hi,

Sadly it is not possible to add this RAM externaly (on a Cart) without modding the CV internaly... (at least cutting1 or 2 traces)
even on an MKI...
