After some discussion with Oscar, the creator of the PiDP-8 and PiDP-11, I decided to try my hand at creating a functioning LGP-30 emulator along the same lines.
Some preliminary information about this emulator is available at https://curuvar.com/pigp30
I am planning on making this available in kit form (or perhaps as an assembled unit) and would be interested in gauging the desire for such a kit.
But will it run Mels Blackjack program?
It does run the BlackJack program.
For those not so familiar with the LGP-30, I once wrote a blog post in the honor of it:
This looks pretty cool. I sent in a tip about this to Hack-A-Day, I hope that it is OK.
Very interesting! I think I found it before, but never realized that there’s the Key 1 missing and using a lowercase L instead. Great idea.
