Number $85
Readable Yes
Writable Yes
Short Description Enabling internal ports decoding
Bit Description
7 (bit 31) (since core3.1.1) re-init all bits 0-31 to 1 upon:

0: hard reset
1: soft reset

6-2 (bit 30-26) Reserved, preserve the current value (or at least use 1)
1 (bit 25) Enabling MB02 DMA Port ($xx0B / 11) (since core3.1.2)
0 (bit 24) Enabling ($BF3B) and ($FF3B) (ULA+)

since core3.1.1: all bits are set to 1 when: soft reset and bit 31 is set OR hard reset and bit 31 is clear (otherwise content is kept intact). All bits are set to 1 upon soft reset.

The internal port decoding enables always apply.

When the expansion bus is on, the expansion port decoding (Next Registers $86-$89) enables are logically ANDed with the internal enables (Next Registers $82-$85). A zero bit indicates the internal device is disabled.

If the expansion bus is on, this allows I/O cycles for disabled internal ports to propagate to the expansion bus, otherwise corresponding I/O cycles to the expansion bus are filtered.

(note: Next registers with number higher than $7F are inaccessible from Copper code)
