Spectre GCR

Recommended Posts

I bought one of these off of eBay. No idea if it has the ROMs in it, but it allegedly works, so it probably does. It's going to be entertaining seeing this thing running on my Mega ST4, just like Mac OS 7.6.1 on my Amiga 1200 with a 40 MHz 68030...

 

Luckily, the software was easy to find.

Good catch, nabbed those. Let's hope the seller doesn't do what the Specte GCR seller did and mail it first class when the auction clearly stated Priority Mail. Ugh. I hate when sellers do that. It's not even the extra day that bothers me, it's that the auction said Priority and charged Priority rate for first class.

If this thing takes original Mac ROMs ... then would the ROMinator work in it?

 

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe the Spectre GCR does various "patch the ROM" sort of tricks to operate, similar to emulators such as Basilisk. If that's the case then my guess is that a custom ROM would confuse it. But that's just a guess.

It wouldn't just confuse it, it does a checksum on the ROM and compares it to a supported list of ROMs.
