I don't have the physical ROM(s), but the attached images may be useful.

Hi.

Many thanks.

I don't have the means to burn it to a Rom though. Do you know if there anyone on here who could do that for me?

Just realised... this thread needs to be moved to wanted too... sorry again mods. :)

If you have the Grafpad I'd be interested in seeing photos and a scan of any manuals and overlays if possible?

I have a Grafpad II and have an overlay although it was pretty crumpled when I got it so I'll have to dig it out and see what state it's in. I have various other overlays that I picked up with a bunch of stuff but think they may be for the concept keyboard. I'll double check.

I can also burn an EPROM for Jo :D

I have one, next time I’m in the vicinity of my collection I’ll dig it out and see what documentation came with it.

Is there a list of hardware / software that are considered important historically and haven’t been preserved? I know about the MIA games list but are there equivalent ones for hardware or non-games software?

There's no list, but in general if you search the web or forum for an item and find very little info then consider it of interest. Searching for the Grafpad finds only the odd advert and a few lores photos so there's virtually no info about it out there. Even the ROMs I posted earlier are not easily found as they were hidden on a larger collection of floppy images.
I generally monitor the forum and Facebook group for signs of anything of interest to emulate, and ask for anything missing to be archived, with varied results.
Software for many hardware devices is missing, especially ROMs, as they get left in machines when sold then discarded by new owner as they didn't get the device. The vast majority of games are archived but software for hardware devices is often overlooked and lost, so if you have any hardware support discs/ROMs that can't easily be found then consider them wanted.

I'd eventually like to add the Grafpad to MAME so a scan of the manual may be useful as they usually contain some level of technical info. A scan of any overlays will be needed too. Also any software that anyone may have, including discs and ROMs in case of different versions. I posted two Grafpad ROMs earlier, are they both required, the manual will probably clarify this.

Hi all.

Would anyone be able to burn me the grafpad 2 image to a Rom please?

It would be ideal if it was a vintage ROM too.
