SubjectTRS-80 Model II Reply to this message

Is there an archive of technical data on the TRS-80 Model II out there? Not the Coco 2, mind you, since sometimes these two get confused when people start discussing them. ;)

I'm interested in seeing if there's enough material out there to attempt working on an emulator. About 15 years ago I used to have a bunch of documentation on various BIOS calls, a memory map, and some other goodies, but it's all long gone.

I miss that ol' girl and find myself feeling sad that it seems there isn't any interest in emulating it.

Unfortunately I don't have access to one anymore -- aside from a couple 8" Scripsit disks kept as mementos -- to dump TRS-DOS 2.0 and the like.

Any ideas?

There's plenty out there if you just look hard enough, idiot. Geez.

*cough*

Yeah, so I found a bunch of very VERY helpful docs. I think I'm going to give it a shot.

I couldn't find any relevant TRSDOS disk images for this particular box, but I did find a CP/M image, and a disk image for an alternative OS.

So...it's a start. Seems like a simple machine. This will be a fun learning experience, if I can actually stick with it. ;)

I think I do you one better, and throw up all the pdf's and stuff I found to my webspace. (And links where appropriate.)

I'll compile that soon. :D

Wow, I'm a douchebag for not getting back to this sooner. Sorry. :/

Anyway, I uploaded everything I have to a subversion server. You can either check it out using svn, or browse it manually.

Enjoy!
