Hi all,

Had a Squawk N Talk hit my bench a few months ago that I both successfully fixed and destroyed at the same time.

Long story short....it acted like it was a bad EPROM. I thought this due to the fact it wouldn't self test and an EPROM failed known checksums.

I later realized this was one of the 6803 prototypes with the Gottleib-like VFD displays. I've already discarded the EPROM thinking it was bad.

Anyone know where I can get the image data for this?

Pat Choi and John More have proto EBDs. If we can track them down maybe one can post a copy?

There's four 6803 prototype ROM versions on IPDB and the S&T U5 is different to the standard 6800 game version. Isn't that all you need?

I have the ROM files. Let me know if you need them burned or sent.

I was wrong on the 6803, didn't get a great look at the board last time.

U5 is what I need. Like I said...was not aware it was a different board set when I worked on the board. I was just handed the board and told to fix it.

Just need data. Have programmer in workshop. Could have sworn I looked on IPDB...maybe they werent marked or I thought they were prototype 6800 roms.
