Alternately, a program called BOOTDMOD (from
will do all the dirty work needed for reducing the cluster size.
You could also reduce the cluster size down to 512 bytes. I have,
and haven't encountered any problems.

For playing games like chess, there is drawback of LCD screen being
in reverse color. I have pallette in SETUP configured to reverse so,
while I use DGSET most of the time, I would just type SETUP only
when I play the game. This way you could utilize the advantages of
both DGSET (compact) & SETUP (ability to change pallete info).

About Emacs... I've settled for Mg (MicroGNUEmacs) because of its

where around there).
