Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

This must have been an interesting device to have in the mid-90s...
This thing looks a bit like a VCR :


Like i said in another thread, plgDavid disassembled it and found a 6809 processor.
So it really is an 8-bit computer/console...
My guess is that the games would simply be load up entirely in the RAM.
A Colecovision game can be up to 32kb so i'm guessing the videoway has around 64k of RAM or something.

Do you guys still have it though ?
Apparently, they are pretty rare now because it was only available for rentals.

I doubt you can do much with it now other than stealing the 6809 processor to put it in a CoCo...

Still, that's some kickass retro games there !
