I have one of the original development Einsteins from Bradford. It''s a black prototype case with some soldering iron marks and one of the first motherboards, a composite video output for TV and one floppy drive. There are two floppies, one with the OS and two manuals, one introduction book and one OS book. This is not getting used so I need to sell it. Please let me know if you''re interested.

I am looking for one of these machines right now, does anyone know where I can get one? There''s a bloke selling the Einstein 256 on eBay right now (July 2011) which is brand new, unopened, but it needs a special monitor to supply power. Without that it cannot be used.. So it''s a TC01 or nothing for me...

As I recall these were stocked by either Curry's or Dixon's stores. As part of their end of year sales in 1985 the last few were sold of for (IIRC) 75 pounds without the monitor.

If anyone would like to own one of these things please drop me a line. I'd be happy to give it to a good home (must be a good home). I rescued it from a friend's house clearance a few years ago and it's been sat in my storage unit ever since.

I had a fit of throwing out old PCs last week but couldn't quite bring myself to dump this (I did thow out my Sparc 5 which I felt very guilty about but I reckon that there are more than a few of those knocking about).

I've no idea if it's working or not though there is no reason it shouldn't and I don't want any money for it. The only condition is that you be London based and flexible about when I get it to you as I'm not around a great deal.

Someone gave me one of these beauties just before Christmas. It's boxed with colour monitor and two carrier bags full of software!!! Works a treat too. It's set up among my retro collection among my network of PCs, SGIs, VAXs, DECs and other various bits and bobs.

Get the M.E.S.S. (see prvious post) read this http://mysite.freeserve.com/Einstein_TC01/ courtesy of that other site, follow the instructions (don't extract the zipped bios as I did) and it should work - now to choose a PC to connect this old drive of mine to and fire up Starquake...

blew up my Einstein many years ago - still got the PSU and the disc drive and wiring diag! - and always thought about writing an emulator (too lazy to do it though) but I just found this link almost at the same time as I found this forum (http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/misc/mess.html) - seems it'll emulate a TC-01
footnote - just tried running it and it need the Rom/bios - bum!

Does anyone have any pc emulators for any great old tc-01 games like 'Kings Valley', 'Bootman','Chuckie Egg'?
If anyone does then i'm shure many people who remember the tc-01 would very much like a copy including me!
If you do have any game emulator for the tc-01 please e-mail me a copy. It would be VERY much appreciated. Thanks.

I have an Einstein with all the games mentioned on this site. Mine still works perfect, and so do the games. Lazy Jones was a favourite too, and Oh Mummy. There was bootman, fu kung in las vegas (with an impossible level 9) and gronks!! I've had this since i can remember. Email me for anything you wanna know or talk about.

Chuckie egg of course, you are right mr wilson, pure class. and to see that blue boot up screen again [see screen pics] "press ctrl-BREAK to load", drowning me in memorys.... thankyou cool website, i think i'll go and cry about how simple life used to be when you were 7- what happened????????????????????????

Oh no. My mother just threw out 30 games! Our Einstein no longer works, and has long since been superceded, so it was thrown away. The Konami games collection was pure class, and games like jet set willy kept you entertained for hours.

Help!!

I have one of these in working order. Does anyone out there have any software?
Especially a system disk!

These were wicked! My mate had one with Chuckie Egg on it and if you had the keys set up as P,L,Z,X and space for up, down, left and right, jump. It would teleport u to the next level if u held them all down at the same time!

Pure class!
