Here you will find a selection of Tatung Einstein image files that you can download and play on the MESS emulator! I will constantly be adding to the collection as much as I can. Just keep returning and watch this space....in the meantime, enjoy reliving your youth!

Before you start, you must download the MESS Emulator from the Official M.E.S.S. Site.

Once you have downloaded and unpacked the emulator go into the main MESS folder. If they are not already there, create two folders named software and roms. Go into the newly created software folder and create another folder within called einstein.

Don't worry, you're almost there! Now, you must download the Einstein ROM image file and XBAS basic file. Do so here :-

Einstein ROM file

xbas.dsk

 

Once both are downloaded, insert the xbas.dsk file into the einstein folder. DO NOT unpack the Einstein ROM zip file, leave it packed. Place it as it is in the roms folder. Note : Any image files you download (as below) will go into the einstein folder.

When you have downloaded your game (image) files, load up the MESS emulator. Select Tatung Einstein from the scroll down menu on the left window. You will see all the roms you have downloaded in the right window. Double click on the one you want to play, and your PC will turn into an Einstein! Now just load up the game as you normally would have on your real Einstein.

Please note : If you load up a ROM into the MESS emulator (for example, a ROM containing a .COM machine code Einstein file) and you try to run it in the emulator and it doesn't work, or the screen freezes before you can even try and run it, don't despair. A perfect example of this is the 256 Games Pack ROM. If you try to load this directly to the emulator, it won't work. What you must do in this situation, and any other ROMS that similarily don't work, is load up your XBAS disk image first, so the MESS emulator will go to the DOS prompt (that is, the 0: prompt). At this point unmount the xbas ROM and thereafter mount the new image that wasn't working before (eg 256 Games Pack ROM). Type DIR then run the program you wanted to previously, and it will work like a dream. Bonus!

HAVE FUN!
