  2. I have a list, which is a work in progress - I seem to find something new each time I look The call I was referring to here is 0190 - which simply returns R8 pointing to the character set base address. I intend one day to go through each one and note down which registers are clobbered when the call is made. Anyways - here's a snippet from my utility, which covers most of the common ones used in ROMs. Please don't under estimate my ability to get these wrong Hope it helps. /** Is this a BIOS call **/ if (addr < 0x250) { sprintf(output,"\tBL\t%s\t\t* ", param); switch(addr) { case 0x0028: strcat(output,"VRAM Clear. No inputs. Returns R0 as VDP Status."); break; case 0x0038: strcat(output,"Write VRAM Byte. R8H == Character R9 == VRAM Address."); break; case 0x003c: strcat(output,"Read VRAM Byte.

  3. Hi, This has probably been posted before, but I could not find it. To correct the cloud scores in Monster Inn on the Tomy Tutor, you need to patch 4 bytes (2 base addresses) to point to the correct numeric font base. Offset 0x7A/0x7B contains 0x19A2, as does offset 0x80/0x81. Change both from 0x19A2 to 0x1B1A and the scores will be corrected. There is a BIOS call which would have covered this - but it was not used, instead they went for a hard coded address. Hope this helps someone.
  4. Thought I should post that I have updated my interpretation of the creatiVision emulator. You can get it from sourceforge as project creativisionemulator. Early in 2015 there will be an update which includes the csl cartridge, upgrading the creatiVision to a Salora Manager or Laser 2001. Hope you enjoy it!
