THE 7800 title so many have searched for more info on, plus actual code.

 

Sadly Scott/Myself not able to bring much new to the table, but here's a test report for the archives.

:) Then may i humbly suggest you check out the Jaguar threads i've just updated with Scott's files, you'll be spolit for choice.

 

Lynx and 7800 threads are benifitting from Scott's kindness as well.

 

They just take so long to convert and share using my smart phone etc.

 

Worth it i hope though.

Oh, such treasures have to be shared with the interested public. You see, only 10% of all silent movies have survived until today. I think, there is an obligation to set aside such documents. One day, they could be very important.

They honestly do, sadly there's a Magpie like mentality that still persists in the greater Atari community...

 

People want to either keep information for themselves so they can either use it to assist with paid for work and be seen as the expert on...certain aspects...

 

Or use for future book publications....only recently contact i know was talking to the coder of an unreleased Coin-Op Rom, coder said, sorry i no longer have it, i donated it too...so my source emails them, they flatly denied having it and as a result it's not been made public, no-one as yet can even see it running, let alone play it.

 

We are awaiting the grand annoucement, it's either that or it'll be another Gollum moment :)

That's a common day for a historian. You want to solve a 10.000 Puzzle with 500 pieces.
