Commodore 64 Easy Flash 3 Cartridge

EasyFlash 3

This is my copy of the EasyFlash 3 cartridge created by Skoe. I got it fully assembled and ready to go from Retro Innovations. The cart is the big brother of the EasyFlash and it provides  7 EasyFlash slots which can be chosen from the boot menu when plugged into the Commodore 64. Furthermore, it can replace the internal CBM Kernal with one of up to 8 Kernals which can be saved on the cartridge. The external Kernal option has the same compatibility to software as if it had been built-in.

The buttons on the top can be used to access the different menus in the firmware.

The cartridge has been placed in a modified plastic Universal Game Case with a custom made foam insert and cover art.

  1. Weirdest thing happened here. Tried to flash the menu ini file to slot 0 but nothing shows up on directory. The file is only 200kB so its well under the limit. Any ideas?

  2. Sounds strange. Have you tried flashing the ‘ef3-menu.crt’ file instead of the ‘ef3-init.crt’ file to Slot 0? The menu file doesn’t contain any example Kernals (just the EF Menu and EasyProgram) so it should contain the minimum amount of data to start up the EF3 cart. If it still doesn’t work, you can send me the file and I’ll test it for you on my EF3 hardware 🙂 Let me know how it goes!
