Re: My Gigatron Build

It could indeed have been the soldering braid. The power circuitry is well protected so the unit will survive. And good to hear you found the little chip!

Re: My Gigatron Build

The first ROMs had less applications than ROMv4. See https://gigatron.io/emu-v1/ . Version 2 was just bugfixes. Version 3 and 4 got some more applications, and less images because of space, see https://gigatron.io/emu/ . The difference between them is that version 4 supports an additional type of co...

I have now also put online: - ROMv1 at https://gigatron.io/emu-v1/ - Latest development ROM at https://gigatron.io/emu-dev/ - 12.5MHz Gigatron with special ROMv3y at https://gigatron...
