In case anyone was wondering... one ROM in this package was not dumped to MESS standards and instead was recreated this way:

I agree with you.
This rom must not be accepted to MESS ROM.
Because it is Not dumped from original ROM chip directly.
It is only made by hand.
In other words, it is not verified with original ROM chip content.

Or added but marked as a bad_dump with a comment where it came from and that it needs to be redumped/verified.
Something is better than nothing wink

The rest of the PGC roms come from "per" on VCF and are archived here:

What I'm saying is: don't credit him. wink

What's curious is that I did that reconstruction in March 2013, so I'm not sure why it's suddenly shown up here as a new thing. Unless someone has actually dumped that ROM recently and by a tremendous coincidence it's byte-for-byte identical to the reconstruction.

That's right.

IBM PGC Font is made with Bitmap Font Editor thanks to John Elliott.
But Javier Donoso (5247846) attached it here without credit.

While I'm here...

The Wyse700 graphics card has two ROMs for the font (dumped and in MESS) and an MC68705P3 microcontroller. I don't have facilities to read the 68705, but if there's someone here who can, I can send them the physical chip.
