Thread: Open University Hektor III ROMs

  1. #1

    Default Open University Hektor III ROMs

    I'm looking for info about my Hektor III and their tools ROMs feature. I've dumped my own ROM set (let me know if you're interested in it) and it has the System ROM (Monitor 10) and a pair of EPROMs containing some kind of "Frequency Analyser", I've no idea of how can I execute the tool; but examining the ROM contents I can clearly see enouch strings to guess its function.

    Seems that there's no emulation for this machine and I haven't been able to find a single ROM repository. Mine lacks a BASIC interpreter; but seems pretty hard to find. The manual talks about a generic 4KB 8085 BASIC; but it must have some specific code for this machine.

    Also, about the docs, there's a PT502 (Hektor II) manual freely downloadable. Pretty good reading and with a lot of excellent info; but the II model is very different, the III has a completely new 64KB memory map and better graphic capabilities. Has anyone info about how it works?

    I'm interested in your ROM dumps, as I intend to emulate the Hektor machines in MAME. Photos of your machine would be useful too, especially of the board in order to identify all components.

    I'll also be looking to dump the ROMs from the Hektors at CfCH during my next visit.

    Great news!. Seems a hard task, there's close to nothing about the machine in the web and it's a shame, looks like a pretty neat machine.

    I'll get some pics of it, stay tuned
