So my question: Is there any legal possibility to share a patched original ROM to the Mega65 community (maybe a clause in the deal)? If not, would be a program which adds the patch to a original ROM a legal way or would this also conflict with copyright?
I'll check this with Deft and come back to you.
I don't think, there is much of an issue, since we have the permission now to use the c65 Kernels.
(and the ones that are available are also in various development states (patched versions) available)
But like i said. i'll check.
Thanks! I hope that there is a way to distribute the patched ROM. A patch program seems only the second best solution. All C65 roms are unfinished and it doesn't make much sense for me to use a ROM with known errors and deliver an extra patch program to correct the errors.
You can supply the offsets and changed bytes, or even write a little program that modifies the ROM in place. I can show you how to un-write-protect the ROM on the MEGA65, then you can make the changes, and re-protect it, and call the reset vector again, and you will be running the new ROM. This will make a nice tool for others who want to make changes to the ROM to be able to do so.
Thanks for your offer, Paul!
I think it would be the best, waiting for an answer about the ROM situation. If there is the need for a patch program, we will find a solution.
