Do you have anything else besides the stuff you uploaded to archive.org? For instance I see you mentioned Hitachi S1 if you could provide some software for it that would be very nice as we only have a couple of games preserved. Same goes for pasopia or smc-777.

Tokugawa is pretty much dead these days so posting here will surely be a better option. I would suggest you to create a dedicated thread for it though.

I have all of the Sony SMC-777 games like Tama, Miner 2049er, A.E, Mario Bros. Special, Penjamin Hudson Selections 1-5, Three Baikin-Kun games, Lode Runner and more. I also have Dezeni Land and Volguard for Hitachi S1. Here are the links to the games:

Thanks for the links, some rare stuff in there! It's very appreciated to have someone helping out with the preservation of old japanese computers especially the not so common ones.

Oh, ya I nearly forgot the Nec Pc-8001MkII and Nec Pc-8001MkIISR. I know that MAME doesn't support it, but I'll just give it to you guys to have fun with and enjoy the rarity of them. I also looked at the other games from Compilations and had the games in there separated so they are now on floppy disk but not in a Compilation anymore. I have more games to find and win so it will take me some time to find them. Plus, I have to fix some other games like Champion Prowres Special for Sharp Mz-2500 which is Side B, Space Bee and Flight Simulator for Sharp X1. So have a nice day everyone and I hope your happy:

The driver says we have bad dumps for the roms of PC-8001, and one bad rom for PC-8001mkII. Driver is here: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/nec/pc8001.cpp

Do you have the ability to dump the roms on these systems?

Is it Font, Font80, Kanji, or Kanji 2?

I think the proper answer to that question is "yes".
Dump all the things.
If possible, dumps from the chips themselves, instead of through software (because software and hardware might do some funky remapping of the font/kanji/etc roms when viewed from the cpu space).

Well, I don't know how that works but I did find some bios from someone else and I'm not sure if it will work or not since I use it on Takeda's Emulator: https://www.mediafire.com/file/325mh6lftzrt1a4/Nec+Pc-8001+Bios.zip/file

I used PC-8001 base to rewrite selected parts of PC-8801 emulation that lead to the promotion of latter one year ago. For doing that I ignored the cassette device part because it's not my area of expertise plus by now I even forgot how to load one with that BASIC flavour:
Code
cload "*"

I think?

It otherwise can load floppy images thru PC-8001mkII.
I also eventually have to look at its CP/M flavour because I necessarily need that for PC-8401 Telnet serial comms.
It's all horribly linked in one way or another, particularly with NEC designs. smile

The Nec PC-6001 and PC-8001 series load cassette tapes with CLOAD but the Nec PC-8801 and Nec PC-9801 series loads cassette tape with LOAD. Both use the command RUN or F5 to play the games. I also think there was a BLOAD command when I was looking into some compilation games.
