Sperg Powers Activate: Arcane knowledge you have of platforms or games
This is pretty simple- what sort of arcane knowledge do you have of specific platforms, or of games- tied to a platform, or the game itself.
- The Apple ][ was usually capable of a soft-reset by running a power reset on the diskette device which would reload into AppleDOS/Kernel. You could accomplish this by PR#[Slot]. Slots 6,5 were most popular. Hence, PR#6 at a prompt would give a soft load without having to power off/on the system at most times.
- The Atari 2600, when released, was mostly comprised of parts which were available off-the-shelf from any decent electronics vendor (Radio Shack not included)
- The Mattel Intelivision, based on General Instruments CP-1600 is essentially a PDP-11, by design. It STILL has an active homebrew developer circuit via Yahoo Groups, in 2018. It was test-released in 1978, making it now a 40 years active console. Suck that, NES.
