The rom files posted here will run on a standard Intellivision. The graphics will be messed up as seen at the end of the video. There's no way to add the extra gram through the cartridge port. Someone would have to rewrite the program to use less gram if that is possible.

Thanks for that mr_me & Lathe26. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Sweet dude. I've already got some encouraging news but I need to make one small tweak to the ROM to make it work on a TutorPro (which I just call an INTV88 motherboard; stealing from others here).
 
If this checks out on a few more consoles, I think we have a one-step TutorPro/Tutorvision detection ROM :)

I -FINALLY- got around to running this ROM (laptop rebuild + work + street walking kept me busy) and it worked great on my system. Thanks!

This is the highest serial number for model 3504 A in the database and it's branded "INTV System III".

A 171447 Canada Steve Jones

I always thought that even if they were to use the same tutorvision mainboard in these Intellivisions there was a chance these boards might be jumpered to disable the extra gram. I'm not sure if there is such a jumper. And I'm not sure if they were aware of the incompatibility with extra gram; it affected very few cartridges. There also seems to be some evidence that some INTV systems had Intellivision II execs in them. I always wondered what that board looked like.

 

just tested this System 3 today, took a while to find as it is in an older Intelly 1 box, sadly it's an intelly 1 inside too.

Thanks, and I'm guessing the serial number prefix is RH and not A ie. it's made in Hong Kong. Looks like the last Intellivisions were made in USA serial numbers A031xxx.

On a side note, what is that little TV screen you have? That would be perfect for my workbench!

I found it at a thrift store.  It's an RCA RTV86073.  Looks like there are a bunch available on eBay.
