  • > Say, did anyone ever figure out what the difference is between the Tomy > Tutor cassette player output and a normal cassette player's? Nope. Still need to disassemble one and look at it. I'm a bit distressed since I'm having trouble with XTOMYDEV for longer tape transmissions; what the Tutor gets back sometimes makes it crash, so there must be slipped bits in the framing...

On second run through memory.cpp, there is some code that seems to strobe some tape lines. I'm not exactly sure what it's doing since it's not...

It does not implement the tape interrupts anywhere I can see in either the core (which is derived from MAME) or in the CSP-specific pyuta driver. It apparently will mount the tape, but there is no means for...

  • > That's nice, let us know if you manage to get it running on the Tutor. I think I have some preliminary decoding done and I'm getting some sensible bit patterns. I'll release the XTOMYDEV versions with the next update of Tutti. Today I'm testing the conversion on a real Tutor. > Can you share the raw recording then?

  • > Would it be possible for you to record it as a WAV file? Actually, I'm working on converting it to XTOMYDEV format to see if I can get it to load in Tutti. The Pyuuta and Tutor have dissimilar tape formats (they're both digital and the encoding is analogous but they are incompatible). I do have it digitized, both as a raw recording as the tape and as direct pulses from the Pyuuta...
