#todayInTheByteCellar eBayed a full Tandy 1000EX system to get the proprietary RAM board from it for use in my 1000HX. Interestingly it has an ISA MFM HD controller & drive, which I’m trading for a new 1000HX case (mine is cracked). Not cheap but finally the HX will be complete.
#todayInTheByteCellar I got Arkanoid 2 and SubLogic Jet running on the Tandy 1000. The former won’t do Tandy colors, presumably because only 256K. CGA ok tho (hit with the ugly stick). :-/ Latter has nice composite color. Also eBayed another box of DS/DD 3.5-inch floppy disks.
#todayInTheByteCellar I moved a few more programs from ‘net to Tandy 1000HX via the 486 on the LAN, discovering that much doesn’t run with just 256K of RAM. Sorting some parts I’m not using to Craigslist.
#todayInTheByteCellar I tried to use the PSX but I think it’s dead. :-(( Messed around with the Amiga 1000 a bit. Also No Man’s Sky.

#todayInTheByteCellar I struggled with my PSX to get Tempest X3 loaded, but drive is near dead. Quake II loaded, so played a bit of that. Tried a few games on the Tandy that sadly need more than 256K to run. Played some Pilotwings 64 on the #N64. It’s snowing hard. Work closed.
#todayInTheByteCellar I played a great deal of Tempest X3 on the PSX with the Playstation mouse, as well as Tempest 2000 on the Jaguar with a custom made rotary controller. (Jag wins.) Ordered ISA riser adapter to get serial, IDE into the Tandy 1000HX. https://t.co/LMSwPTU4SZ
#todayInTheByteCellar (well, last night) I tried a few other games on the Playstation that support the PS mouse, including Sentinel Returns and Tempest X3. The latter offers the best Tempest control other than the Jaguar's T2000 with a rotary controller. https://t.co/lvtT4IcJ6q
#todayInTheByteCellar I played a good bit of Quake II on orig Playstation with the PS mouse, BBSed on the Amiga 1000, tried Solo Flight on the Tandy (needs more RAM, sadly), and No Man’s Sky. https://t.co/LBSQohCqxo
