    I have the 16K version, this it the program that I ran, here are the results:

    When the program runs this is the first set of characters that appear on the screen, but you have to be quick, they only stay visible for a second.

    After the screen clears, this is the 2nd set of characters that appear on the screen. Hi RES 1a Hi RES 1b Hi RES 1c Hi RES 2a Hi RES 2b Hi RES 2c

    Default Thanks very much! It is just match to Japanese.

    Thanks very much!

    It is just match to Japanese PC-6001.
    That means PC-6001A VDG is same as PC-6001.

    VDG : M5C6847P-1 ( Mitsubishi, compatible with Motorola MC6847 )

    The font is nearly same as MC6847's PAL square font except (*).
