TOSEC: The Old School Emulation Center

The Old School Emulation Center (TOSEC) is a retrocomputing initiative dedicated to the cataloging and preservation of software, firmware and resources for microcomputers, minicomputers and video game consoles. The main goal of the project is to catalog and audit various kinds of software and firmware images for these systems.

As of release 2012-09-15, TOSEC catalogs over 200 unique computing platforms and continues to grow. As of this time the project had identified and cataloged 466,396 different software images/sets, consisting of over 3.60TB of software, firmware and resources.

The initiative was founded on 18 January 2000, with the first official TOSEC website going live 18 August 2000, by a Dutch retrocomputing enthusiast using the pseudonym "Grendel". While the original founder of TOSEC has since ceased to have an involvement in the initiative, a dedicated team of volunteers continue to expand and contribute to the project.

The goal of the TOSEC project is to maintain a database of all software and firmware images for all microcomputers, minicomputers and video game consoles. In addition to this, the project also catalogs other computing and gaming resources such as software and hardware manuals, magazine scans and computing catalogs.

Using this data, TOSEC can provide quality assurance and auditing tools for cataloging and validating software images (such as ROM chip images, CD images and floppy disk images etc.) and computing resources (such as manuals and magazines).

The TOSEC database contains detailed information on images of hundreds of thousands of ROMs, EEPROMs, optical discs, magnetic disks, magnetic tapes, document scans, and other sundry media and individual files.

To understand the conventions of the TOSEC filenames, please read the TOSEC Naming Standards Document. (Current version: 2011-08-27)

Designed to expand the lifespan of the aging Genesis console, the 32X sold poorly and was met with tepid market response, and discontinued in October 1995. It initially sold for $159. Installed in the Mega Drive/Genesis cartridge slot, 32X Game cartridges were then placed into the 32X expansion unit itself. Approximately thirty-five 32X Game cartridges were released.

The Radio Shack/Tandy Corporation TRS-80 Color Computer (nicknamed CoCo) was released in 1980, with subsequent hardware updates in 1983, and 1986. Despite its TRS-80 heritage, the TRS-80 Color Computer differed greatly from its predecessor with the implementation of a Motorola 6890E, rather than a Zilog Z80 processor. The more expensive Motorola processor set the TRS-80 Color Computer apart from the Apple II, Commodore, and Atari systems which were based on the MOS-6502 CPU. While lacking the...

The TI-86 includes a function evaluation table, deep entry recall, seven different graph styles with multiple line and shading options, and slope and direction fields for differential equations. In addition, the TI-86 boasts 96 KB of user-available memory--three times more...

WonderSwan (ワンダースワン Wandāsuwan?) was a line of handheld game consoles produced in Japan by Bandai between 1999 and 2003. It was developed by the late Gunpei Yokoi's company Koto and Bandai. The WonderSwan was made to compete with the Neo Geo Pocket Color and the market leader Nintendo's Game Boy Color (even though the developer for the WonderSwan, Gunpei Yokoi, developed the original Nintendo Game Boy). The original WonderSwan was later replaced by the WonderSwan Color; although...

The Super Control Station (スーパーコントロール・ステーション) SF-7000 is an add-on to the SC-3000 home computer, manufactured by Sega. It debuted in 1984 for the asking price of ¥79,800. The SF-7000 allows the user to run software off 3-inch floppy disks, as well as adding a further 64kB of RAM, 8kB of ROM, a Centronics parallel port and an RS-232 serial port. It is an extremely rare and very expensive item, and because it relied on the 3-inch floppy disk standard rather than...

The Commodore MAX Machine, also known as Ultimax in the United States and VC-10 in Germany, was a home computer designed and sold by Commodore International in Japan, beginning in early 1982, a predecessor to the popular Commodore 64. The Commodore 64 manual mentions the machine by name, suggesting that Commodore intended to sell the machine internationally; however, it is unclear whether the machine was ever actually sold outside of Japan. It is considered a rarity. Software was loaded from...

Fetching more results DESCRIPTION The Old School Emulation Center (TOSEC) is a retrocomputing initiative dedicated to the cataloging and preservation of software, firmware and resources for microcomputers, minicomputers and video game consoles. The main goal of the project is to catalog and audit various kinds of software and firmware images for these systems.

As of release 2012-09-15, TOSEC catalogs over 200 unique computing platforms and continues to grow. As of this time the project had identified and cataloged 466,396 different software images/sets, consisting of over 3.60TB of software, firmware and resources.

The initiative was founded on 18 January 2000, with the first official TOSEC website going live 18 August 2000, by a Dutch retrocomputing enthusiast using the pseudonym "Grendel". While the original founder of TOSEC has since ceased to have an involvement in the initiative, a dedicated team of volunteers continue to expand and contribute to the project.

The goal of the TOSEC project is to maintain a database of all software and firmware images for all microcomputers, minicomputers and video game consoles. In addition to this, the project also catalogs other computing and gaming resources such as software and hardware manuals, magazine scans and computing catalogs.

Using this data, TOSEC can provide quality assurance and auditing tools for cataloging and validating software images (such as ROM chip images, CD images and floppy disk images etc.) and computing resources (such as manuals and magazines).

The TOSEC database contains detailed information on images of hundreds of thousands of ROMs, EEPROMs, optical discs, magnetic disks, magnetic tapes, document scans, and other sundry media and individual files.

To understand the conventions of the TOSEC filenames, please read the TOSEC Naming Standards Document. (Current version: 2011-08-27)
