Re: NEC PC-8801 mkIIsr with NON Blues

that is one of my favorite boards, I have the Type C or D .. I forget (the one with the different connector)

I think for that one its about handwiring. I think someone here had found a way to convert it ... somewhere in this forum. If I find the link I will drop it here
