Title: Free Roms
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 20:46, 05 March 18
The emptying of the "Amstrad cupboard from Hell" continues.

The following Roms are free to anyone that wants them:


1.Protext x 6
2.Maxam 1.5 x 4
3.Prospell x 3
4.Promerge Plus x 2
5.BCPL x 1
6.Nirvana x 1
7.Utopia x 1


These Roms are untested but are of the same vintage as the  ones I use myself so they should
be OK. If you would like any of these please send me a SAE and two first class stamps for return postage.


Cheers,


Peter

Are they originals or just burnt EPROMs?

Three are Wacco printed labelled Roms (when Brian Watson and myself distributed Arnor products after they ceased trading), The Nirvana Rom by Goldmark systems is from when I took over their products and the rest are also Wacco Roms with handwritten labels. Printed labels for these Roms would replace the handwritten labels before posting out to customers. There are probably printed labels for them somewhere in the "Amstrad cupboard from Hell" but I haven't found them yet. The code for these Roms came from the original Arnor and Goldmark Roms.

I'll take one of each of the remaining ROMs then. I don't think I've ever owned an original ROM. Or if nobody else wants them I'll take the lot.

OK Bryce,

I will put aside Maxam, Protext, Prospell, BCPL and Nirvana for you. Nirvana has an original Goldmark manual if you want that as well.

This leaves:
1. Maxam 1.5 x 1
2. Protext x 3
3. BCPL x 1

Cheers,

Peter

Yeah, sure, seems to be only 13 pages, so I should be able to tackle the read :D

Let me know (PM) what you need regarding postage.

Bryce.

Hi Gryzor,

Still have one Protext Rom.

And found most of the printed labels for the others.

Cheers,

Be nice to have it :) Like Bryce, I don't think I have an original one!


I remembered I owe you a message about the scanner, so I'll take it there!

I have an original Maxam box that I bought back then (Disk version), but it also had a cool holder for the ROM version, which is where my Maxam ROM will now be stored :)

@ComSoft6128 (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2226): I think I already sent you my address, remind me if I didn't.

All Roms were posted off last Tuesday so should have arrived by now. Has anyone managed to use them yet? I'm interested to see if they are still working OK.

Cheers,

Peter

Mine arrived last night, but I won't get to test them for a few weeks.
