Does anyone have a copy of the SVI-838 system disk? It may be asking for a MS-DOS disk but if so which version. Also I'm looking for as much information, manuals etc as I can possibly get. Thanks in advance.

You mean here :

But the link to the file does not work, I guess it's better to contact Tomas Karlsson.

or http://www.network54.com/Forum/25917/thread/1232098867/last-...

for another version and e-mail address.

Too bad Tomas stopped responding to any mails about one and a half year ago.

It has been a great loss!. Even worse as archive.org doesn't has archived most of the software of the page; so for now there're a lot of software unavailable Sad

Hope that Tomas doesn't have a health problem...

The provided GW-BASIC 3.2 is quite an unique mixture between traditional GW-BASIC and MSX-BASIC.
Ie. SCREEN-command supports both CGA screen modes + some of the V9938 screen modes. Also by default when you use PLAY-command it works just like with any other PC, but when you execute SOUND ON-command it starts to work like on MSX... Plain weird stuff...
