That's really strange. A portable word processor that can dump the text out to PS/2 or ADB? I imagine they sold about 3 smile

Welcome and thanks for the dump though, should be fun to emulate!

That might be the first device that can be run on it's own or connected to one of two completely different slot interfaces.

I have two of the successor units to the Alphasmart Pro here, the Alphasmart 2000; it is still 68hc11 based and ps/2+adb (with some sort of hd44780 type lcd and an optional infrared port which neither of my units has) but unlike the alphasmart pro, the 2000 has its rom in a combo rom-pal-io chip; i have two fw versions of these chips here but i do not have a means of dumping the contents out yet.
The alphasmart 2000 also has the crappiest plastic keys poshing rubber-dome keyboard imaginable, which literally destroys itself by cookie-cuttering the rubber into pieces by the sharp edges of the backs of the plastic keys over time due to idiotic design-engineering.
The Alphasmart 3000 is supposed to also be similar to the 2000, iirc. Right down to the crappy keyboard, i think.

Sorry if this has been posted. I couldn't find anything in the forum nor do I see that MESS emulates this, but my guess it's been discussed in the past and I am probably too late here, but nonetheless...

- Tristar 64 BIOS

The Tristar 64 is an unlicensed add-on for the Nintendo 64 (N64) video game console. Produced in Hong Kong by Future Laboratory, the Tristar 64 features two additional cartridge ports which are designed to accept cartridges created for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES, a.k.a. Famicom) and Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES, a.k.a. Super Famicom).

Info above taken from Wikipedia.

I thought this would be an appropriate place to put in a link to the BIOS file.

Is anyone actually actively archiving/mirroring these ROMs? Not that in 2 years, if someone's interested in emulating one of these, the links are dead and the uploaders nowhere to be found.

If not then I'd volunteer to host them somewhere (although mirrors would still be appreciated, just in case...)

I'm thinking of something simple, maybe like BitSavers: Directories and files. Nothing fancy.
