    Howdy folks!

    It's been a while since I've roamed these parts, but figured I might as well drop in and say hi with a newly dumped ROM from one of these. As far as I can tell there is only one of these. I have the same one that is in that picture. Anyone care to have a dig through the ROM and see if there are any tasty tidbits in there?

    So that machine used a megadrive as to run the hadware checker? very cool, didn't know about that.
    Lovely bit of recycling :)

    Is that the one that was on Yahoo Auctions within the past month or so? If not, there's definitely more than one.

    It sure is! I was quite surprised when I opened it up to have a peek!

    Any chance of a link to the auction, only if you can find it. You've given me hope that the v1.00 BIOS isn't lost to time! :)

    Unfortunately the photos are gone, and I didn't archive.org the page. I do however know that it looked to be the same type of device, as I was talking to a friend about it and he linked me the Sega Retro page at the time.

    Thanks for digging it up! At the very least it confirms another one is bouncing about. Does Yahoo Japan have anything that isn't cool and retrogaming related?

    Thanks! Good find!
    Looks like I'm missing the old controller ports adapter. That explains why I was having so much trouble trying to jam an arcade stick plug into the front ports... I'm kidding of course! :p
