Upgrades

As it is conceived, this machine is not compatible with the addition of a disk drive. A modification is required to use slot 1 instead of slot 3 for the build-in firmware and make possible this addition. After this upgrade, playing games in cartridge is no more automatic : you need to choose BASIC in the special menu.
