I am currently making experiments with my flashcartridge
because I want it to be a multicart.

To choose the different ROMs on the cart, I will have to
write a menu system. Currently I have reserved 14 characters
for each ROM. The menu system should be able to somehow
display the rom names and let the user select one of 127
programmed games (by joystick I guess ....)

My problem is, that I am a complete newbie at VCS programming.
I have the feeling that I really need some help to get started.

Can you please give me some hints, how in principle a text engine
for this task could be made for the VCS. Is there a description of
an appropriate kernel somewhere ? What would be a realistic
number of character for each entry ?
