We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

TRS-80 Microcomputer System Model III - David Jones's Machine

This was the very computer system that David Jones wrote his classic Magic Knight series of games on.

It consists of the TRS-80 Model III computer, a 15MB Hard Disk unit, and a home-made connecting interface that fitted to the printer port of the TRS-80 and which was then used to dumped the code into the Spectrum via the Rear connector.

David authored Finders Keepers, Spellbound, Knight Tyme and Stormbringer on this machine, as well as his earliest games such as Bonkers.

We also have David's source code disks that have been copied and the contents stored for the future.

Manufacturer: Radio Shack
Date: July 1980
