Might anyone have the vyper game around somewhere? I’m guessing it must be quite rare

TSCHAK: hopefully the machines you can get to have different ROM versions. CHM's is 1.07 so there's plenty of variety. And dumps of cartridges would be welcome.


Amazing! smile

And yeah, will work with the machines that are here in DFW to get ROMs. The massive excavation and liquidation at Computer Reset has been happening for the last couple of weeks, and two and a half units have been found so far, there may be more.

yeah, believe me. I fucking _HATE_ keyboard poachers. We were able to save two complete systems, and one is missing a keyboard. I am hoping there is at least one more.

As it also happened, Computer Reset was the recipient of _ALL_ of IBM's PCjr liquidation.

Five trailers full.

Give the keyboard poachers all the PCjr "chiclet" keyboards. That'll teach 'em.

Great work, so far! I was able to boot it. Something to note, the Monitor/TV modes interpret their palettes differently, the monitor uses the RGBI palette, of the top 4 most significant bits only. This may be why the text is purple in monitor mode.

Thanks to your work, I am able to proceed with the bring-up of PLATOTERM into the MINDSET. First new piece of software for this system in 35 some-odd years:
