interesting cartridge notes
- Having played with the Pyuuta some more,
* PLAYER 1,2? must be a ROM routine, not a cartridge-provided routine.
All of my American games ask it in katakana on the Pyuuta, and in regular
English on the Tutor (with the same cartridge in). All the other prompts
* Car-Azy Racer comes up as Japanese gibberish, though it runs. I'm not
surprised, since I expected that the lower case replaced the katakana in
the Tutor's ROMs, but ...
* Mah-Jongg is Japanese on *both systems*! It must carry its own character
set with it, because all of the other Japanese-only games I own (Bombman,
Scramble (JP), etc.), show up garbled on the American Tutor.
