TMS1000 Wilbert Pol
 
Hi

Has anyone done any work,like rom dump on the Texas Instruments TMS1000 used in a lot of games.

Also is Wilbert Pol on this list. I would like to contact him re the TMS1000

Thanks

I thought I knew what you were asking, but after reading it a few times I'm not really sure exactly what it is you're trying to say.

I'm not entirely sure what it is you're asking.... the TMS1000 is a processor. How are you going to do a ROM dump on a processor? I can't find any emulators for TI calculators that use the TMS1000 processor but a group has reverse engineered the Big Trak tank which used the TMS1000.

As for Wilbert Pol, have you tried asking on the Oficial M.E.S.S. forum? Since he's a regular contributer to M.E.S.S., I would imagine that someone there knows how to get in contact with him.

I am a newbie to all this but I am advised that you can download the code off the TMS1000 processor.

What I would like to do :

I have a Hornby Zero One model train controller which uses a TMS1000 and I want to lift off the code and modify a little and put onto a modern chip etc.

Thanks

From that link you posted:
Quote:

The program is burned into the 1024 byte ROM and is not modifiable. Because the program is in the microcontroller itself, not a separate ROM chip, it is not possible to replace the microcontroller with just any another TMS 1000 chip. You'd need to pull one from another Big Trak.
Apparently there's space on the chip itself for a small program.
