I had no idea I could pause my TZ with the home ROM ... very cool, even if I never use it.
I learned how to start LITZ accidentally one day when kneeling on the extra ball button (playing sitting down in a chair after foot surgery).
Where can I get a Robby the Robot? I prefer to mod it myself, so just the base toy. But if that is unobtanium I'd consider the expensive modded one ... maybe.
Finished up a couple of mods today...
Then finished my Hallmark TV mod. Full credit goes to Ed Cheung as this is straight from his plans, with a couple of minor modifications:
Wiring was tied to the 5v source on the clock board.
Ground from the "G" pin, right side, second from bottom. 5v from the top leg of "C2". I made a wiring harness and tied in in from the rear so as not to mess with the board more than I had to.
And it all came together like this. Hard to see the TV images from the photos, but it looks great during play. It plays a couple dozen pics from various TZ episodes, one shot of Pat Lawlor's, and one of the translite.
Hard to say, but it's definitely a contender. I can't imagine ever selling our TZ ... just so much for the money. If they tried to build it today I would think minimum $8k retail.
