Oh ok. I guess I misread then. Too bad, because it would have been nice, like when dumping TI-81 ROMs or stuff like that. In any case, Videoway as a gaming system was 15 years ahead of its time in terms of online capabilities. I doubt it could have supported online multiplayer, but I mean the way it retrieved games.

Also it was kinda weird to see actual TV image with 8-bits overlays. I wonder if they used a transparent color for the 8-bits overlay then slapped it on top of each TV image? Nonetheless it looked cool.



AppleTV can do this, but Vidéoway did it two decades before. :P
