>I am looking for help with emulation for the DEC Rainbow 100.


It appears to still be work in progress since there are needed roms still not yet dumped and supported in MAME from some of the Rainbow computer systems.


comments within the rainbow.cpp source file do provide some informative instructions.

https://git.redump.net/mame/tree/src/mame/drivers/rainbow.cpp

COMP(1982, rainbow100a, rainbow, 0, rainbow, rainbow100b_in, rainbow_state, 0, "Digital Equipment Corporation", "Rainbow 100-A", MACHINE_IS_SKELETON)
COMP(1983, rainbow, 0, 0, rainbow, rainbow100b_in, rainbow_state, 0, "Digital Equipment Corporation", "Rainbow 100-B", MACHINE_IMPERFECT_GRAPHICS | MACHINE_IMPERFECT_COLORS)
COMP(1985, rainbow190, rainbow, 0, rainbow, rainbow100b_in, rainbow_state, 0, "Digital Equipment Corporation", "Rainbow 190-B", MACHINE_NOT_WORKING | MACHINE_IMPERFECT_COLORS)

Some programs are already recognized and supported in MAME in the rainbow software hash file. I don't know if anyone else is in process of adding more Rainbow software entries in the Rainbow hash file at this time.

for other Rainbow stuff, the thread to really visit is on Bannister's site.

The specific Rainbow thread in order to post questions and possibly get answers would be in this specific thread because there are a few Rainbow users that can answer questions. Even though some of the posters are also here on MW, you should have better luck there in that thread compared to here imo. If not registered there yet, give it time in case you decide to register there to ask Rainbow questions. iirc It might take a while for new registers to get added on Bannister's users list, but that is where you might have Rainbow questions answered.
