Thread: QuikLoader board

  1. #1

    Default QuikLoader board

    Hi
    I'm still hoping to find a manual for this board.
    It is cool. It allows on to put most anything
    that can be loaded from disk onto EPROMs
    and then transfered to RAM from the card.
    So far, I've been able to use it with what is on
    it but I'd like to do some of my own code for
    it. With out instructions, it'll be tough.
    Cool thing is it has both DOS3.3 and ProDOS
    in the EPROMs.

    Hi
    I just thought I'd pass on that I finally found some Docs
    for the SCRG QuikLoader board.
    A fellow in France had mauals and all on disk, including the
    disk images to do things like building new ROM images.
    For anyone wanting copies, he posted it all to the Asimov
    collections under the ROM directory.
    I've not done anything yet with it but plan to soon.
    For those that are not familiar with it , it takes binary and
    BASIC programs that would normally be on disk and allows one
    to load then into RAM with quick key strokes. I've found it
    really handy as I've been doing analysis of programs that
    often require reloading DOS after things go wild.
    It is not the Apple ROM card you usually see on eBay and
    it is definitely something all would want.
    It would conflict with any card that takes over the boot process
    early on, such as the IA SwyftCard ( something else I'm playing
    with ).

    Wow, that IS pretty darn cool. Will it work on a GS? Could you put larger capacity ROMs in it and load GS/OS from ROM?

    Hi
    Not sure if it works in a GS but I suspect it could be made to work. It can
    hold up to 6 ea 27512 chips and can load multiple chips at a time.
    That is 64K bytes times 6 minus some overhead.
    It takes less than 2 seconds to load DOS 3.3 and BASIC.

    I just bought one off of Epay. Mine has EEPROMS installed. I am not sure yet if you can program them while installed in the card. I have all of the software if you need it. Mine is loaded with DOS, and a bunch of games an utilities.

    The Quikloader card alone can't program the EPROMs/EEPROMs. You need a separate programmer to make your own ROMs.

    What things did you find on your ROMs?
    I agree, without some hacks you can't program them on the board.

    I discuss the SCRG QuikLoader in great detail in my DOS 4.1 document found on my website www.applecored.net. I made a simple hardware change using an unused gate in order for the board to respond to slot addresses. And I developed a far superior operating system I call EOS, or EPROM Operating System. An EPROM burner is required to program the EPROMs, such as the SCRG PromGramer. The last generation board can support up to 8 27512 EPROMs. Seriously, I only use 3 27512s on my board for all the tools I need. I believe my EOS loads DOS 4.1 way faster than 3 seconds.

    I have two PDF's that are similar to the manuals I own for the quikLoader. I would be happy to email these PDFs to any interested party.
