Re: Doom Pit

Hi Dave, as far as I am concerned, I would not object to a free digital distribution of Doom Pit and the Seto Taisho To Kazan bonus game which came with Seto Taisho Vs Yokai .

Re: What 128k model to buy for homebrew development testing and homebrew gaming?

Errata: in my long post above, read 55393 instead of 55403 and 55403 instead of 55413. Sorry but I changed those values for coherency reasons while I was writing and forgot to edit these two. I am no more able to correct the post now.
