Sega AI Computer: first dumps, system roms, scans, recordings & more

Around late 1986, Sega released the “Sega AI Computer”. This is one of Sega’s least well known and rarest systems. Not much was known about this system apart from a small amount of information in Japanese and American flyers and press articles. The information we have is still piecemeal and may be partly inaccurate.

Today we are making public, for the first time: all system roms extracted from the Sega AI Computer, data dumps from 26 my-cards and 14 tapes, many scans and photographs, and in collaboration with MAME developers, an early working MAME driver allowing this computer to be emulated.

This is technically a 16-bit CPU computer but with many 8-bit era parts. It's quite an orphan computer in Sega history, and although outside of SMS Power normal scope, we decided to work on preserving it.







Please read details and find all downloads at:

Enjoy!

This is absolutely incredible, insane, and almost incomprehensible.

This machine boggles my mind the more I learn about it. Insanely awesome work preserving this all!

I just wrote something about the Sega AI Computer at German Wikipedia.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/SG-1000#Sega_AI_Computer

It was mentioned there before with just one small sentence.

May I use one of the photos for illustration?

You can use of a good majority of photos at:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zCtETqhax-0UHjtOrBd4nWcDC5WB1gSF

But may need confirmation in case you pick one that isn't mine (however I know who made most photos and I can ask). Both my photos and Chris photos are ok to publish on Wikipedia under whichever licence you see fit.
The ones from any of the "auctions" folder obviously are not ours.
I can also take new photos if you need a specific thing.

This computer may not fit within the website prerogatives hardware-wise, but its software couldn't be more Sega-ish/Master System-ish. So, you're VERY welcome to the SMS Power, mister AI Computer!

I just won this today, two undumped games and I've got a buyer for the others so it should end up ok.
