Now that we are here... I accidentally yesterday bought Victor superimposing cardridge... Is there some standard how they work? Can someone give a hint, how to control it, or should I just experiment? Maybe some I/O ports , BASIC-commands or...

Please reverse engineer the interface so it can be finally emulated.

The LD interface was reverse engineered for the openMSX emulation, but sadly no proper documentation about it was ever published.

Ok, sounds like that's what I have to do...

The major problem that I have is that I don't own Victor computer... Some day in distant future I'm planning to dig up one of my Yamaha CX5M-computers and swap the SFG05 with this... I'm anyway a bit afraid that I'm going to run in to some internal PAL vs NTSC problems. As long as there is no smoke involved I think it's fine. Smile

Let's hope that it has some sort of ROM to take a look as I don't like the idea of opening it for reverse engineering... Currently it is boxed and in mint condition... I won't promise any schedule when I'm gonna take a look as it requires setting up a proper test bench...
