Boot Message Text

Does anybody know off hand where the boot message text lives.  That is where is the APPLE ][ or Apple //e or ACE 1000 vx.x message text stored.   I'm thinking about getting a ROM-X and mulling over some ideas. As I recall it was clear text ASCII in the ][ Plus but was mildly encrypted in the //e so copyright infringement was easier to detect after the Franklin court ruling. I wonder if the Laser 128 was the same or if it moved in the "clean room" ROM?

 

I think early PRODOS versions checked this and we entered NOPs using a sector editor to bypass the JSR get it ro run on Franklins.    Does that sound right? That code might be in Beneath Apple ProDOS.  I guess I could read the ROM listing, but that would take a while.

 

Does anybody have an tips that might give me a jump start and save me some time.

There was a nice blog here on fritter by Fuji that has all the details.

 

BTW, this is a great use case for ROMX! And if you haven't already seen it, check out the ROMify Tutorial in the Documentation section.
