How can I split a ROM file?

Postby Sowden » Mon May 27, 2019 5:17 am

So in the near future I should come in posession of 2 28 pin EPROMs that I have been told are flashable. I would like to pop in some TOS versions right into my machine without having to do any soldering like I do with 32 pin chips. But my question is how do I split a TOS ROM file in to Hi and Low? I need to install Rainbow but I would also like to experiement with EmuTOS as well. I know that I can download the TOS files, I'd had it working with Steem for years. But how can I take the ROMs and split it so I can simply pop it in with the greatest of ease? Finding someone to burn them will be another hurttle, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Any advise? Thanks guys.

ROMMIX.TTP from the Pinatubo software package using the SPLIT1.MIX command file that comes with it:
https://www.schwingen.org/files/pinatubo/pinatu24.lzh
I think you should be able to understand how the command file works even when the readme is in German.

Or ROMSPLIT from ppera, although I vaguely remember having problems with it:

ROMSPLIT worked like a cham strait through Steem. Thanks for your help!

I've made a Windows PC utility for manipulation on ROM images. I've called it a "CartMan". Here it is (with the source in C#):
