Absolutely -- that was why I was very antsy about desoldering the ROMs
out of my Pyuuta. (The Pyuuta II has the same ROMs as the American Tutor,
fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your point of view.)
The graphic mode just looks so much different that I'm trying to figure out
how it works. When you're able to get that screenshot of MONitor mode, that
would complete the photography I think :)
No emulator supports the Jr, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Although
the CLA is different, the base architecture should be compatible enough to
allow the ROM to boot. It might not work right in a Tomy Tutor emulator if
a cartridge were present, but it should still come up into GRAPHIC mode if
one were not.

I imagine so -_- at this point, I'd be happy to get *any* unit. I'm very
flexible about prices and I can draw up international money orders in yen
(my Pyuuta and Ultimax were Japanese imports from Aki), so I've done
these kinds of things before. I just need a lead on one ...
Thanks so much for entertaining my little fandom seizure on this. :)
