Very cool!

This reminds me of a project I remember proposing to the list back in 1995/1996 about doing a terminal program and modem module built in to a cartridge.. I was thinking about this more recently after checking out the Dark Mage source and seeing how Greg wrote all the long text strings to the screen, but it looks like you've already done that part..

I like it a lot! I'm starting to reconsider the terminal program idea.. The circuitry would be a piece of cake using some of the pre-packaged modem modules (Cermetek, etc.) You could easily use a serial keyboard (like they have for the Palm devices) to interface with your code... Hmm.. Ideas, ideas, ideas...

Hi all,

Speaking of net-demos,

Well, here's a little rs232 demo I wrote up last summer.  It transfers at
300 bauds via joystick 2 pinouts.  I can't remember which pin it transfers
on, but I made a cable which connected 2 9-pin connectors via pins 1 to 3,
3 to 1, 4 to 2, and 2 to 4, but I made the demo rs232 compliant, so only 2
of those wires should really be useful.  To test on itself, take a 9-pin
connector and wire pin 1 to 3 and pin 2 to 4.

Anyway, I've got another project I'm working on, so I'm allowing people to
look at the code and bin file, to fire up some ideas.  Don't know if its
comments are any good, but who can say?  After all, I wrote this a year ago.
