Hello,
I had the luck to purchase some parts from Tasc. One thing is a Tasc board in real tournament size (50x50 cm) and a Tasc main unit which is different from the nomal Tasc unit. It is about 1,2 cm lower.

The Softwareversion of the unit is 0.13 and on the backside of the board is a sign and the handwritten serialnumber 01.

I would like to know if anybody knows more about that machine. Are there more of these boards and machines?

Thanks for any idea.

Chessful Regards,
Sascha

Hi Steve,
yes I am glad that I got it. It has very beautiful pieces. Within the next week I will make some photos and post them on my site. I will inform you then.

Thankful Regards,
Sascha

Thanks for the Link
i see the unit is different from the usual unit
yours is the smaller unit?
what version of the King program is it?
perhaps a photo of the startup screen would be interesting?

Admiring Regards
Steve

Hi Steve,
yes, the Prototype is smaller than the later versions. I have three different EPROMs for it: 2.15, 2.2 and 2.5.

Proud owners Regards,
Sascha

Hi Sascha, yes, congratulations from me too. I don't own a TASC board
but I'm wondering why I can't see any lights on this board. Do some tasc
boards come without lights?

Hi Larry,
this is worldwide the only Tascboard in TM size and also the only one without LEDs ... you can see the move on the display of the main unit.

Best Regards,
Sascha
