Retro Replay -> Final Cartridge III F-Keys ??

Hi guys, this isnt a hard task but i cant do it.
Im using an Ultimate1541-II+ Cartridge and i used Final Cartridge III before all my life but because i dont work 100% (for example Sid Wizard) i use Retro Replay now. However I would love to have the Retro Replay with the FC-III F-Keys like
F7= LOAD"$",8,1 (DOS"$

I could provide the Cartridge Roms if needed.
Cant be really hard but i wouldnt know what to look for.
If anyone would like to do that please let me know here or a PM.

(I'm like a cat, i dont like changes ;) ) Also i think the FC-III FKeys are the perfect order !

haha, SHAME, no of course its not ,8,1 ;) But dont be a smart Ass.

Its over 30yrs ago that i programmed something in assembler on the C64. It should be super simple, just exchanging the F-Key Hex-"Numbers" and it should work.

Sounds good Groepaz. CHEERS.
Prob is i cant find is here or at pokefinder Also searched for freplay. Nix.
So i found this site:
Downloaded it renamed the bin to CRT

When i want to use the TFR08 renamed to crt now it says header of crt file not correct. I assume i cant simply rename that bin to crt. Thought i may work.

My problem with Final Cartridges I+II+III is that when i use Sid-Wizard and go into the Dir it finds the Music Files but when i want to load them it says "File Not Found" dont know why that is.. It works with Action Replay therefore i just thought when someone would simply reconfigure the Fkeys in A-Replay it would be great. Also FC_III hangs on other software (new demos) here and there.

Thanks man. Ill try that. I also tried Final Cartridge III V4.1 CRT Version but sadly it says "File too large" (to be flashed) so maybe this would have worked.. I have CCS64 but ill get Vice instead then.

I dont know whats wrong. I use cmd in win10 64bit
got this here: https://vice-emu.sourceforge.io/vice_14.html
i tried several things: however nothing happened at all
but this should basically be it or not ???
cartconv -i "tfr08.bin" -o "tfr08.crt"
i also used it with t
-t carttype
This parameter is optional. It is only needed when converting to a .crt file.
used fc3 (just in case" etc. etc. nothing happened AT ALL...
I know i cant be a programmer anymore ;)
i tried it on win xp (old laptop) as well.
clueless.. hopeless... useless. humorfull at least...

Thanks Groepaz. I may try this later again, but i guess nothing will happen again like before. However i found a Cartridge called "The Killer Cartridge" which is kinda like FC-III loading wise at least, (same F-Keys) and it works with Sid-Wizard. Yay.. ;) Its not as fast as Retro Replay but at least the F-Key are the same. thats what i wanted. So thanks again for your Help..

The KCS Power cartridge has the functions you want:
f1 = list, f3 = run, f5 = load, f7 = dir
It also has Shift+F1 for a monitor and I think it even loads faster.

Here it is (sorry about the dropbox crap): https://www.dropbox.com/s/7vwslfvulxxhy4a/02-Power_Cartridge_%2..

Certainly not the greatest cart, but it has the 'proper' key bindings.

@ Groepaz i dont believe it but it worked ;)
TFR08 is now on my Ultimate II+ Cartridge, it twice as fast as final cartridge III (7 secs to load Sid Wizard 1.8) final cartridge III needs 15 secs. Also loading tunes in works and it has the FC-III FKey layout. YEAH ! + an assembler monitor !!
Thanks again Gropaz !! Thats Awesome.

@ Compyx
yes had that KCS Cartridge before as well, however some stuff didnt work. But loading Sid Wizard worked and as you said, a bit faster than Final Carteidge III (just 12 secs) So thanks for your help man but i now use the Final Replay. Also it seems to be completely rewritten which means to me its up to date and will work with new software as well. (Maybe not like the 1985 KCS Cartridge, which i btw had originally before the FC-III back in the days.

So thank you guys and prob solved ;)
