Some Tandy documentation I thought Keith might be interested in.

Post by EvilSandwich » Thu Dec 05, 2019 5:13 pm

Keith mentioned a passing interest into looking at 8088 assembly, but said he never came across the Tandy 1000 series of home computers. I found a really nice hardware service manual for the Tandy 1000, if he wanted to play around with it for a Hardware Specific 8088 assembly tutorial in the distant future.

You'll find the Memory Map details starting on page 47.

The Tandy 1000 tech manual is a lot less dense and way easier to navigate than the giant bloated monstrosity that is the IBM PC-Jr's tech manual. lol

Thanks!... looks good info!... if you find any more, feel free to post links to it.

This wouldn't be a system I'd look at in the 'first wave' (That will cover basic MS-DOS and the WonderSwan)... but I'd certainly consider it once the initial series was done.

Yes, I am actually really excited to see you covering the Wonder Swan. That hand held was such an underrated gem.

The more people know about it, the more homebrew games I'm likely to see for it. :)
