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.

Where did you find that info Gameblabla? It's really hard to find anything about it on the Internet because it was almost completely forgotten.
I found all the info here :

Follow the thread for an interesting journey inside the Vidéoway.
He even tries to run the dumped ROM in MAME !

According to the decap, the Vidéoway has :
  • A MC68A09EP processor (6809 based, 1.5 Mhz)
  • 256Kb of Video Ram (a lot for 1989 !)
  • 8Kb of Static RAM (Like the PC-Engine)
  • A QSI chip labelled "LSI LOGIC CANADA" (Probably for handling video and sound)

It might be possible to play some games by replacing the ROM chip but other than that,
it's a dead old brick.
