Little note: I think you mean "current" and not "actually" -- 2011-03-10 21:53 IP

Yes, you are right. -- Moiree 22:59, 10 March 2011 (CET)
Thank you, but insert tips in the Talk-sides, please --Jodigi 03:42, 11 March 2011 (CET)

I recommend to speak of the default memory configuration here only and leave the complicated stuff in the PLA article. At the moment, this is a strange mix: It's stated that $0400 is screen memory (well, in default configuration only), but $E000 is "free for machine language program(s)" (certainly this is *not* the case in default configuration). Best also re-merge the "RAM" and the "ROM" section. It is broken at the moment: VIC/SID/CIA registers are *not* RAM. I'll do this if there's no reply in one week (no pressure, just to keep bureaucracy low). Apart from these small things, I like the recent changes! :-) -- 1570 23:13, 19 October 2013 (CEST)

Agreed. I did some swathing cuts and consequently have not cleaned up the errors that relied on the Bank Switching changes (including the revised PLA Page). However I would like to keep RAM and ROM separate especially in light of the explanations on the Bank Switching page and the same memory they can occupy. That said, the VIC/SID/CIA stuff should also be broken out into an I/O heading. I will do that today. This will then add emphasis to the delineation in the memory map diagram: RAM, ROM and I/O registers as separate entities. I have also made a couple of colour graphics for the memory map. I'll upload one and see what you think. It can always be removed if it is not in the 8-bit spirit! --Charliefourzero 14:12, 26 October 2013 (CEST)

Not sure making three separate tables for RAM/ROM/IO really makes things clearer; people will want to look up things by address, not type. I'd rather make "type" just a column in one table. But perhaps try it, we'll see. Don't forget to list $0/$1 under IO. :-) - Concerning graphics, the point of the ASCII graphics is to keep the graphics editable easily, and to be able to have links in the graphics, which is very useful here. While SVG would still be somewhat editable (it's a hassle though) I don't think you can have links in SVG graphics. - If you make further changes, keep in mind, which should somehow align. For example, chip registers are kept in the chips articles there - which is good I think, as people will look up "VIC II" for its registers, not "Page 208-211". To keep this aligned, perhaps we should create separate VIC-I/II/III articles...? -- 1570 15:12, 26 October 2013 (CEST)
