C128 BASIC

silverdr@wfmh.org.pl
Something just hit my eyes - upon starting VICE's x128, the copyright message says "(C)1986 COMMODORE ...". Now I remember very well that I saw C128 running already in 1985.. Were there some late changes in the 128's BASIC?

Yes. There are multiple versions of the roms.

I see. Any important changes there? I probably got used to C64's BASIC being BASICally only one and forever and it surprised me.

The only one I can ever remember is the Q didn't change when you were in
CAPS LOCK mode.
