  • > they have a different starting string at the beginning of the file than all > of the other cartridge dumps I've looked at (and this string isn't in the > list of valid strings for the memory map we have either). What's the byte sequence they use? I'm annotating portions of the Tutor ROM as part of a "secret project" using a custom disassembler, so I can try to find what it's...

  • Since I'd like to do more hacking and data exchange without having to spool up the Data Recorder, I'm resurrecting Ian Gledhill's old TutorEm to teach it about XTOMYDEV bitstreams so it can load and save directly to them. After a bit of hacking to fix a few endian problems on the G5, it compiled with relatively few modifications on OS X, and now it runs: http://www.floodgap.com/iv...

XTOMYDEV has a raw bitstream format from which an audio file can be generated that the computer will accept (it includes the complete tape stream, sync mark to sync...

If you can load them and then resave them directly connected to your computer's audio-in, XTOMYDEV should be able to generate a bit pattern from it for archival. -- ------------------------------------ personal: http://www...

You may wish to open it up and look at the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If that appears to be intact, the keyboard itself may be defective. Since some keys work, I doubt...
