I found a way to use a PCI-E video card in El-Hazard!

I have a Big Trak and I always wondered about the hardware. Turns out it's got a 4-bit microcontroller with 32 bytes of RAM and 512 bytes of ROM. (Since it's a 4-bit device, that translates to 64 and 1,024 locations, respectively...but a byte is 8 bits.)

It's an interesting look into the hardware of an early 1980s electronic toy.
