    Works on my system without an F18A.  I do have the NanoPEB + FinalGROM.

    @Tursi When I ran it before, it ran fine in the demo (attract) mode.  I don't recall if I started a game though.  I didn't have a joystick at the time, so I wasn't able to play.  (I'm in the process of moving, so my TI stuff is in boxes.)


    Just to clarify, my TI has: Speech Synth + NanoPEB + FinalGROM.  I don't have an F18A.

    The BIOS is custom which searches for a boot image with a specific signature in an on-board USB flash, which then extracts an initrd from another USB flash into ramfs.  Both the boot image and initrd image appear to be untouchable except through a convoluted update process which I have not yet traced out.  The firmware files are encrypted.

    Sounds like the perfect excuse to switch to commodity PC hardware; then install your favorite Linux distro.

    That worked, sort-of.  It shows "intel" but not Realtek which it definitely includes.  I will dig a little more and this gives me a better place to start.  Thank you.


    Mine shows Realtek:

    How can I list the drivers which are installed as part of the distro?  I can list active drivers with installed hardware, but I need to know the inactive drivers so I can match them to a card.

    This is as far as I got, which is to find the top level directory where the ethernet drivers are located. I have no idea about the contents of said directory though.

    ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/



  5. Do you guys also get 'ghost' bullets coming out of nowhere at least there is no robot?



    I sometimes see this right at the beginning of a level. Usually just a single bullet coming out of nowhere.


    And also see sometimes a sprite robot going up fast to the top. Not sure if I shot it



    Yes I've seem that on occasion. It doesn't appear to affect gameplay.


    Once in a while also I get this at the bottom.


    Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that it looks like some kind of overflow.
