TechStep Project
AttachmentSize
Image icon Techstep Unit 164.79 KB

I have a TechStep diagnostics tool on the way from eBay.  I have always wanted one of these for my collection.  Two ROM packs come with it.  I have an idea for a project so that owners of these devices can select between the six ROM packs that were avaialble for it.  I am going to test to see if I can dump the ROMs once it arrives and if I can, I will need help finding the four ROM packs I don't have to dump them too.  

 

I am getting CPU vol 1 and CPU vol 2 with it.

Read the text description there for descriptions of the 4 ROMs.

Hi JDW, 

Hi JDW, 

 

This would work. Is this something  you would be willing to sell?  If so, what are looking for?   I live in the US so shipping would be within the CONUS. 

PM me. 

 

 

 

Thanks,

Jay

I am located on n Japan, so shipping wouldn't be as low as domestic US shipping, I'm afraid.

Jay, I look forward to hearing if you are able to properly perform a ROM dump of those 2 cartriges and whether or not you are able to combine those ROM dumps into a single ROM cartridge, which appears to be what your project is about.  If you have success with that and can show a short video of it, I may be willing to ship you my 2 catridges which you don't have, at my expense, if I can obtain your promise to ship them back to me via Airmail, at your expense, within 30 days of your having received them.  That would be cheaper for you overall, no money would need to be exchanged, and although I would need to trust you to return them to me at your expense undamaged, I think I can help you out seeing the ultimate aim of your project is to help out the community as a whole.  The main issue though is that I only have 4 ROMs total.  I don't have CPU Test Vol.4.

I had a friend of mine ship

I had a friend of mine ship his cartridges to me and I was able to dump all of the ROMS.  I am waiting for some of the cartridges to come up on eBay so I can buy them and develop my schematic for the all-in-one cartridge.
