Here's my collection of Tomy Tutor homebew PCB's. I'll start of with the great gift I received in 2018 by Tanam from Japan. The middle cartridge has Pitfall! converted to the Tomy Tutor. The more interesting one to me is Door door pictured on the left. Notice there's also a 32K RAM on there. I have both a Pyuuta (=Japanese version Tutor) and later I also bought an american Tomy Tutor. The interesting part is, that there are differences between the two. On the Adapter board I need to remove the EPROM and pull the kill jumper to make it work on the American version. @tanam1972 if you're reading this: Does the red cartridge PCB also has RAM on there?
What needs to be done to allow me to move qualified threads into the new TMS9900x Tomy Tutor subforum (See TI-99/4a computers) or at least tag them accordingly so they can be moved by a moderator. I’m not a moderator, but did volunteer with Albert for moving topics when I requested the new subforum. Thanks Filip (retroclouds)
Next to my multiple TI-99/4a home computers, I also own multiple Tomy tutors and even a Geneve. In The last 10 years or so Atariage has become the home of most of the TI-99/4a community. Unfortunately for the Tomy Tutor, the community is really scattered on the internet and it's hard to find technical details and programming details. Also have the feeling that most Tomy Tutor, 99/8 and Geneve owners are here on Atariage in the TI-99/4a section. To better focus the threads and gather additional interest I propose to create a subforum in the TI-99/4A Computers section right here on Atariage. Target group for the subforum are the close relatives of the TI-99/4a like Tomy Tutor, 99/8, DS990, ... Minimal requirement for that is that the heart of the computer, the CPU must be a Texas Instruments 16bit CPU like TMS9900 (or closely related like TMS9995). The VDP chip alone does not count, machines with a Z80 CPU (Colecovision, MSX) have their own forums here on Atariage. I have opened up a poll that goes until end of september. Depending on the poll results we can then discuss with Albert. What do you think? Please vote in the poll and comment here. 😀 Retroclouds
Klaus of Team Europe has been working on a new cartridge for the Tomy Tutor: You can read all about it here: https://team-europe.blogspot.com/2020/09/tomy-tutorpyuuta-ultimate-multicart.html There’s still some space left on the cartridge. Everyone who contributes a new game to the cartridge (new homebrew) gets an Ultimate Cartridge for free (you only pay shipping costs). Thank you Klaus!
