Wow. Very cool.

This bodes well for LD arcade and laseractive megaLDs and LDrom2s.

Only if enough unique discs can be found and captured, but for the most part, yes.

I wasn't expecting zero-dropout DL without a lot more discs, so that's amazing.

Been working on a Viewdata terminal, the Tandata Td1100 https://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/18690/Tandata-TD1100-Prestel-System/ and it is now able to connect to the Telstar Viewdata system https://glasstty.com/telstar/ over TCP.

It is currently connecting to the Telstar TCP port through the rs232/null_modem device. This is not ideal as it connects to the stream at machine start and instantly receives a welcome page that is ignored by the Tandata as it hasn't yet been told to dial a service, to initiate a connection.

Ideally I think I need a imagedev/viewdata_device that will give me more control over the connection, allowing to enable/disable RX/TX only when the dial sequence is complete and is waiting to receive data.

Today, January 24, 2024, is the 40th anniversary of the Macintosh, and conveniently I've just gotten one of the weirder ones made to boot. This is the Macintosh TV, from late 1993, which worked either as a Mac (more or less a Color Classic architecturally, but in a black case instead of the usual Apple Platinum) or a TV with a remote control (TV was full screen and you couldn't use the computer while watching). Only about 10,000 were sold.

So excited for the next MAME release... thank you for all that you're doing here (and for everything else you've been doing since forever).

Side question... I noticed a while ago that the keyboard CPO I have for Thayer's Quest is generic... and the best real version that seems to be online is just 640x480. Any chance on asking the group that supplied the discs if any of them have the original CPO, and can take a good scan or a few hi-res photos?

(Not holding my breath... but if I don't ask, it's an automatic no).

Thanks!!!


RELAX and just have fun.
Remember, it's all about the games. smile
