MapROM040+ Released!

MapRom040+ 1.0 ©SpeedGeek 2018 (QuickROM Simon Goodwin 1998)
             
INTRODUCTION:
MapRom040+ is an MMU tool to remap Kickstart ROM(s) for 68040
and 68060 users. It can remap both 512KB and 1MB ROM(s). Yes,
it's true it really can remap 1MB ROM(s)! But Standard ROM
mapping is always optional.  
             
FEATURES:
- Remaps the Kickstart ROM for the following areas:
  1) $F80000  512KB (Standard)
  2) $E00000  512KB (Extended)
- Maps only into available Fast RAM        
- Uses 68040/060 library and ROM Header detection code
- 100% Assembler code

REQUIREMENTS:
- Amiga with 68040 or 68060 CPU and MMU
- 68040.library or 68060.library      
   
NOTES:
Standard ROM mapping is optional because many accelerator cards
provide custom MapROM hardware for this function. Please
consider the ROM vs. Fast RAM speed before remapping. The
executable file name excludes the "+" character to avoid
problems with the Amiga Shell. If you want to speed up copy
operations see the CMQ&B040.txt (included).  
       
WARNING:
This tool uses modified QuickROM code. It has a few
improvements which should provide compatibility with
most (but not all) 68040/060 libraries.      

CREDITS:
Thanks to Simon Goodwin for his public domain QuickROM tool.

v1.0 - First release
