its probably using the standard bios would it take you long to open it up and have a look at the chip numbers?. the only difference between the standard bios and the luxor is a bit or two allowing horizontal movement in the pack-in pong game, don't know if i've mentioned that before or not. is sysinfo.dat still being used or should I write this up on the wiki?

Please use the wiki, new sysinfo.dats will probably be generated from it.

this is a bad news... i'm working on a good update of it to submit to ht1848... oh well, infos can always be copied and pasted to wiki and then sysinfo can be generated from the wiki :P

Probably easier if you just update the wiki yourself smile

well thats proved me wrong the standard chips are SL31253 and SL31254, the Luxor replaced SL31253 with SL90025. You've got SL31291 and something else? I've ordered a cheapy (55 in p&p) ROM programmer recently it should be here in a couple of weeks (from hong kong) so I could attempt to dump it. I havn't dumped anything before but from what I understand it's just a matter of desoldering those 40-pin DIP packages plugging them in the programmer and running the software.

EDIT - There may have been something about checking the pin assignments of the packages, I'll experiment on my master system before I touch anything rarer. willing to let me try incog?

Sure smile

edit: I also have some ngage and a tapwave zodiac game, the are all on SD card and I have an SD card reader, are there any special steps I have to go through to get complete dumps from these or is it just a matter of copy and pasting? I like to dump games/consoles that were commerical failures before they get rare.

Cool, I'll let you know when my programmers arrived and i've had at my master system.

If the SD card has a secure area its probably a similar process to dumping NDS? Don't know whos clued up on that. Didn't really find anything on google although i'm too tired right now to thoroughly search things.

I've seen Zodiac dumps floating around in the wild, so I assume there's nothing special about it.

anyone know much about the coleco telstar arcade? according to wikipedia its cartridges have small programs stored in ROM but also custom logic circuits http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleco_Telstar . Is this something that could eventually be included if dumped?

Are pages like http://redump.emubase.de/dev/mess:drivers:channelf:channelf on the wiki generated from the source? It looks like it. If I want to put up some useful links for channel f and a brief history where do I put it?
