After 17 Years, It Is Back!
Even more complete, even more compatible, even more powerful!
The Mégarom T.2 is a MEMO7 cartridge compatible with all the 8-bit Thomson computers, TO family: T9000, TO7, TO7/70, TO8, TO8D, TO9, TO9+.
It provides 2 MB of persistent, rewritable flash memory. These 2 MB are accessed through 128 banks of 16 KB each.
The Mégarom T.2 is 100% backward compatible with the Mégarom T.1 and with all the commercial software distributed in MEMO7 format, including 32 and 64 KB multi-bank software (e.g. Microsoft® BASIC 128).
It can also be used to develop and / or distribute software that requires up to 2 MB of ROM space.
Other hardware features:
The Mégarom T.2 comes with an awesome compilation of various software: utilities, applications and games. Just like the Mégarom T.1, it is compatible with all TOs: it automatically detects the machine on which it is plugged and displays, in a suitable screen resolution, the list of programs compatible with your machine!
Version 2.0 of the compilation contains:
And among these, MacroAssembler 3.6: the power of Assembler 2.1 with even more features, new assembler directives and most importantly, a dynamic and powerful macro engine!
Also included is Mission: Liftoff, a superb game released in 2018 for the TO8/8D/9+ computers.
The icing on the cake: the Mégarom T.2, loaded with its software compilation, fixes a 36-year-old bug in the ROM of the T9000!
The upgrade from v1.0 to v2.0 is realized using a set of four 3"½ floppy disks (seven on the TO9). No external programmer or connection to a PC is required. Please contact us by e-mail if you need the upgrade kit.
