Gentlemen, I have several PCB, dump ROM, floppy disks and documentation for the LABTAM 3000 computer.
Perhaps there is someone who wants to implement it in MAME !?

Interesting machine! Two 8086s and two Z80s and both the Intel and Zilog parts bins all over the place (plus a 6845 for video and a WD2797 FDC), and the technical manual seems to be OK. I don't have bandwidth right now to look at it, but maybe Duke or crazyc would be interested?

I also have a Nec MFM HDD with some kind of Unix (maybe Xenix or Venix) but the drive fails self test.

I seem the BIOS ROM images in your dropbox but not those for any floppies?

I made some dumps of 8inch floppy disks. But they can contain personal data of users. They need to be cleaned.

I'm looking into this.

EDIT: Xolod, are there any floppy images that don't contain identifiable user data?

If not, are you willing to share a couple privately so that I can hopefully try to at least get floppy booting up and running enough that you can use the emulated machine to 'clean' the images before a wider release?

I can't read Cyrillic, and I have a hard enough time even reading Australian, so I think your data is in pretty safe hands.

Thanks. I'm a bit tired this evening, I've only had 3.5 hours of sleep, but I'll try to chip away at the driver over the course of the week, and then the weekend. There's a lot of hardware there, so getting everything "just right" might take a short while.

Just FYI, I'm still poking at the driver, I'm just spread a bit thin at the moment. It'll likely go in for MAME 0.232 (the end-of-May release).
