Thanks to you and others that suggested using various means to put the game on ADAM disk which is the first thing I did but what I really want to do is take an actual dump of the EPROM to put the file into .BIN or .ROM format to be able to use an emulator and share it this way. Plus if the eprom ever goes phffft I (believe I) can re-write the .BIN file back onto the Eprom preserving it for another period of time.
I am a rookie at all this which is likely obvious.
