Expansion Bus Decoding b24-31 Register
|Short Description||When expansion bus is enabled: Internal ports decoding mask|
|7||(bit 31) (since core3.1.1) re-init all bits 0-31 to 1 upon:
0: soft reset
|6-2||(bit 30-26) Reserved, preserve the current value (or at least use 1)|
|1||(bit 25) Masking decoding: MB02 DMA Port ($xx0B / 11) (since core3.1.2)|
|0||(bit 24) Masking decoding: ($BF3B) and ($FF3B) (ULA+)|
since core3.1.1: all bits are set to 1 when: soft reset and bit 31 is clear OR hard reset and bit 31 is set (otherwise content is kept intact).
All bits are set to 1 upon hard reset.
When the expansion bus is on, the expansion port decoding mask (Next Registers $86-$89) is 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)
