There no info attached to these images, some of them might be cracked/defaced already... Anyway, can upload all of these dumps to messftp (13 GB) or elsewhere.

dii.high_seas.1A looks original -- uses non-standard prologues (D4 AA 96) and epilogues (AF xx xx).

gemstone_healer looks like a regular DOS disk, boots and runs, and is newer version (1.4) than https://archive.org/details/390a_Gemstone_Healer_side_A (1.2)

(added code to samdisk to scan neighboring quarter tracks for valid sectors, regular dos 3.3 disks get copied in 1 pass)

A guy on the German vintage computer forum is restoring his Basis 108 to working condition, which prompted me to do some quick searches for that machine.

ROMs can be found online at the Internet Archive.

There are at least two different keyboard controllers, M5L8048 marked ASCII and DEUTSCH.

ASCII keyboard controller

German keyboard controller

As those are soldered in, motivating people to dump them will probably be hard ...

At least the post in the German forum contains a high quality scan of the Basis mainboard schematics.

Can you grab the higher-quality schematic and put it somewhere? That forum won't let non-members see the attachments, and I don't particularly want to sign up for a forum in a language I don't speak for one file smile

Done ... I'll follow up with whatever is coming along ... maybe having the Basis 108 in MAME could motivate people to dump the keyboard ROMs as well.

I've uploaded raw dumps in 'dii' format to messftp. Patch to samdisk is at https://github.com/shattered/samdisk/tree/diiwip -- it adds a new command 'diicopy', you have to use it with '--no-dups --force' option like so:

samdisk diicopy dii/wishbringer/dii.wishbringer --no-dups --force --verbose wishbringer.do
