Hi,

I have read on a Dutch website that there is a person that has one of the rare upgrade ROM for Novag Savant.
It was also noted that the person has tried the ROM in a Novag Savant but could not make the ROM work.

I do realize that finding that person is like finding a needle in a haystack, but one never knows.

If there is anybody visiting this forum that knows that person, and they are willing to contact me.
If I can be provided with a binary copy of that ROM, I can easily figure out if that ROM was supposed to be an upgrade to the Novag Savants or not, and if it was really part of the upgrade, I could easily tell what that ROM contains, for example, if it is chess engine code or data (a new opening book, and so on).


Best regards,

Kostea

I'm trying to verify claims from various sources that:

- the electronic schematic has been slightly redesigned, fixing some bug or bugs
- the chess engine is playing better
- perform other non-destructive tests that I'm not going to mention at this time.

As far as I know, the Savant II has a bigger opening book than the Savant, but it has the same CPU speed of 6 MHz.
The Savant Royale CPU speed was increased to 7.5 MHz but nothing else changed from the Savant II model.

Regards,

Kostea
