Thread: Action Replay PC (ISA card): manual, box, disk, PCB scans

    Default Action Replay PC (ISA card): manual, box, disk, PCB scans

    Hello, all.

    I recently picked up an Action Replay PC (ISA card), and scanned everything in the kit.
    I figure some people here will be interested, so please download & enjoy!

    Manual & disk...

    I'll leave these on my webspace for a while (a few months), so people have ample time to snag 'em.
    Eventually the download links will disappear, however. But please, share these anywhere you like.

    Thanks for the uploads, especially the English version of the manual (i own the German translation).

    Do you happen to have a copy of the disk somewhere?

    These binaries are useless without the card and were once freely distributed by Datel BBS, so i guess there is no copyright issue.

    Thank you very much.

    Seconded request for software (and I'm extremely jealous, I've been looking for that for a while!)

    I have hosted the files at [here], in the Datel section.

    Within the PDF of the instruction manual, I performed OCR (which also de-skewed pages), and I added bookmarks.

    Oh, yes, of course. Here it is...

    A much newer version of the software is still available on the web archive of Datel's old site.
    However my card came with a self-reported v1.3, which I haven't seen archived anywhere.

    Can I ask where you got it? I have been looking for a replacement paddle wheel (Cable and button) for years now. Thanks.

    On eBay.

    BTW: Sorry for my late reply, I hadn't revisited this thread until today.

    I lent my Action Replay PC to Clint Basinger (aka "LGR") and he did up a real nice video about it...

    As well, he kindly uploaded all my scans to archive.org...

    So I'll be removing them from my webspace soon.

    Yeah, as soon as I saw that, I said "Oh, he's got Brandon's Action Replay".

    Seeing it in action, it's function is nearly identical to a Periscope board: Has some RAM to hold the debugging software, and hooks NMI so that a button press can activate the software no matter the running state of the computer. The only major difference between them is the software.

    Yeah, I remember ads from old issues of "Dr. Dobbs' Journal" and similar magazines advertising similar NMI cards for use with debuggers like SoftICE. It looks like it'd be a really handy tool for software debugging, probably a much better use for it than game cracking.
