Default Re: Non-working Commodore PET 3016

As the current version is actually failing on the Zero-Page test it will presumably never get to the 'general' RAM test, so as Mark says it really needs to generate continuous activity on failure to initialise the stack or failure to write to / read from Zero Page as well.

If, on detection of any such error, it would signal the error by displaying a text message and then continue to retry the operation which failed, that would be really helpful. It also needs to do writes to the failed location as well as reads from, in case it is in fact the write side of the test which is failing.
