Manual + schematics = working double-size chars and smooth scroll:

Cyrillic glyphs aren't very polished, though, compared with vt240-clone (mc7105).



When firmware thinks there is a graphics card, a Tek 4010 mode menu suddenly appears:

Graphic card is rather simple -- basically a "glass plotter" (no upd7220 there, it's all discrete chips).

Here's another find (from http://agatcomp.ru/Pravetz/SuperGames.shtml) -- apple2-based arcade board (fits inside the CRT case) with Mario translation patch

Not in MAME (yet :))

I've took a stab at it but failed. If starting address is 0 (i.e. this dump is mapped at $C000 so that start address is read from $3FFC), then code makes some sense, but treats memory at $00xx as RAM, then accesses unknown slot devices and finally jumps into unknown (no matter what I add to $4000 it doesn't look like useful code):

Yeah, it's substantially altered from the plain Apple II Mario, at least in terms of the startup code.

Some progress on http://mametesters.org/view.php?id=5764 "radio4k: Display is not stable and flickers". This ROM uses SCC_END_OF_ROW_DMA chars, regular radio86 does not:
