2024年05月11日 - 三菱MULTI8
Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later; if a Japanese company made an 8-bit computer, I'm more than likely going to want to try it out. This time, I came across the Mitsubishi Multi8. It was far from a success, after the release of this, Mitsubishi chased the MSX market instead of continuing with their own unique 8-bit offerings. There was also a namesake successor, the Multi16, I don't know much about that one but it apparently wasn't compatible with the Multi8. 続き⇒

I got this unique machine and thought it was absolutely gorgeous, but I wasn't able to do much with it. It came with a monitor and floppies, and when I powered it on it didn't display anything, and that left a lot of uncertainties. Was the monitor bad? I can't easily connect anything else to it. Was the computer bad? I can't easily connect another monitor to it. Was both the monitor and computer fine, but required the original boot disks before anything would be displayed? Good luck finding those. And for all of its lack of functionality, it was also huge. 続き⇒
It's not so common to find games for the MZ-1500, but applications are that much rarer. A bit ago, I found two boxed applications with manuals, it was quite a surprise! This one is called Can Can, it's a Japanese word processor. You already know it's a little bit special, because they actually put their label on in a sensible manner, so both the label and the case can be upright at the same time. So far, they're the only ones to do it that I've seen. 続き⇒
Casio chose a different path for its bundled software than most companies. While Sharp, NEC, and Fujitsu (and others) included some simple demos to show off the system's capabilities, Casio included regular software. I am sure someone who had an FP-1100 with its fairly limited range of software might appreciate this, but as someone who has amassed a bunch of old computers and realizes that the FP-1100 simply doesn't have that much software but still enjoys the machine itself, I wish they had included the demo. Oh well! 続き⇒
I recently purchased the game Tonky as part of a lot deal of X1 D games (about half were 3" floppy disks and the other half tapes). This is the most intriguing game to me, and it doesn't disappoint. This article is more about the physical aspect of the game. I have more detailed information about gameplay in the Tonky game introduction page. 続き⇒
Sometimes it can be a little hard to decide what category to put something in. I got this FP-1100 as a whole set. Oh! Actually, I lied! The FP-1100 in the photo below is my original FP-1100, because it's in much better cosmetic condition than the FP-1100 I received in this lot. 続き⇒
Just before the end of the year, I grabbed this lot of boxed PC-6001 items. There was considerably more than this, but I wanted to focus on the matching boxed system and peripherals. The system box was in pretty decent shape, but NEC was wont to use cheap cardstock boxes for the peripherals, so the end result is they don't look amazing after 40 years. 続き⇒
2024年02月10日 - FP-1100の内部
I got this sort of hapless FP-1100 on Mercari. It came as a big set including monitor and manuals. The monitor was grimy but basically good condition and wiped up nicely. The computer itself, however, was a nasty mess and I did such a gosh-darned good job cleaning it up and I just NEVER think to take "before" pictures so I don't have any. Actually, I ALWAYS think to take before pictures and I ALWAYS think "nah, it won't be that interesting. But while this may not look perfect, believe me, it used to be much much worse. I did good by it. 続き⇒
As far as system software and demos go, NEC is pretty solid. The system disks for the PC-8801mkIISR are no exception. There are two disks - N88 BASIC and Demonstration. 続き⇒
I got the PC-3100S quite a while ago and it *mostly* worked, it powered up into BASIC and you could throw direct commands at it and have it fire back at you, but something was wonky about the way it was storing program lines. You can check for more details about that in the main PC-3100S system article. 続き⇒
