You can save RAM pages, but this is not in ROM format, and all RAM pages are saved together in one file. So today the M2kM software is not able to read this and convert into a MOD file. Will add this to my list of things to do.
And the HEPAX way is by far the easiest way to create your ROM with FOCAL programs. Just a step is missing to convert to a ROM (or MOD) file on the DM41X. Actually I am not certain if V41 allows to save an individual RAM page, anyone? Probably easiest with virtual IL and one of the utils to save a ROM to tape.

You're right, I had assumed that the HEPAX_4H.MOD would be updated when you load/save programs using HSAVEP but that's not the case in the DM41X - contrary to the V41 case, that's what tripped me up.

I'm somewhat sketchy on the workings of the module loader, but it'd appear the RAM pages are independent and only "attached" to the HEPAX by the module loader - and upon CALC_ON I guess? I don't know if there's more information on this in the technical reference available on the SwissMicros site.
