The diagnostic cart detailed on Ray Carlsen's site would be quite useless in a Behr-Bonz since it also requires a 3k RAM expansion located at $0400-$0FFF.

Such an expansion wouldn't conflict with the Behr-Bonz memory area usage if you have a multislot expander but it cannot be included on the Behr-Bonz.

Do you know if the other diag carts have the same requirements ?

They all need 1k ram expansion. They run but the timer is wrong

Not much point putting them in the Behr-Bonz then.

I suppose this is a PAL vs NTSC thing, correct ?

No there is a clock at the bottom of the screen that does not show the correct time if there is no 1kb expansion

Are you able to tell exactly which region of memory is covered by this 1kB expansion ?

Not that it would change much about the incompatibility with the Behr-Bonz but it would help me understand the requirements.

This is not possible. I have only the 3kb expansion on the penultimate card

I have contacted Thomas Lovskog by e-mail to get another batch of gold plated boards fabricated and received no reply.

I hope he comes here and read this.

I have received news from Thomas.

I can now accept pre-orders for more Behr-Bonz multicarts. Pricing information is unchanged.

Thank you all!

I will be receiving 30 new boards this afternoon, 3 have been sold through pre-order and one is reserved for a trade so 26 units are available.

I consider right now I do not have enough content to justify the creation of a Double Behr-Bonz but it remains technically feasible.

What was the price for the Behr Bonz? I know the price changed a few times but couldn't find the most current price? Thanks.

Current price is 36$US or 32.50 Euros with a discount on orders of 5 units or more.

I tried to change it in the first post of both related threads, here and in the announcement section.

If there is any place I forgot to correct, by all means, please tell me and I will get it corrected.
