Install instructions


 Download WinTVC1.3.0 emulator from tvc.hu. You will find 'emulators' section (as Emulátorok - green fonts). If you scroll down the menu on the left side of the homepage, seek 'WINTVC' (cyan) title, and click 'LETÖLTÉS' below. On the next page click 'WinTVC1.3.0', extract the zip file to desired folder, then just click WinTVC.exe or WinTVCx64 depends your OS. Please wait a while, then TVC ROM starts by a blue desktop. Then press any key, after that picture will switch to black and you should see Basic version and free memory. This emulator can emulate all of the TVC series, so you have to switch the configuration from the default TVC32K to TVC64K+ in this order: press ALT+K, this opens a window 'Gép konfiguráció' (system configuration), stay on the 'Standard konfiguráció' field and pop down the combobox. Select 'TVC 64K+ / BASIC2.2' - you will find this on the bottom, and click OK.

Now the emulator is in required, TVC 64K+ mode.

To load the program, please press ALT+C and select '8bitsunset.cas' from the folder where you downloaded, and click 'OK'. Type 'RUN' and enjoy the view...

  If you arent familiar with the VideoTON TVC Computers, you are not alone. This computer built and sold mostly in Hungary, Europe. The category between the ZX-Spectrum or  Amstrad CPC, and between Enterprise 128 (lets say: the successor). 32, and 64k Memory, Z80 processor and 16 (hmm... actually 15) colors. It has four expansion slots, which makes it unique and quite expandable. You can find more information at www.tvc.hu, and you should use Google translator i guess.
