You know that the archive.org link that MrWifiHifi confirmed is the correct book offers a download in different formats including PDF?

Just saying.

I think the suggested book was like the requested book. The confirmation was that he needed the exact title.

Yes, it is exact title

I meant that "How to design & build your own custom TV games" is exact title that I'm looking for

You can try here: b-ok.cc

Thank you for links to that sites, but I don't find on it the book I'm looking for, only thing that I found was Commodore 128 reference guide for programmers

If anyone have that book and will be willing to scan book to pdf, than would be very nice of him, because it seems that this book probably was never scaned and it's only in physical not digital form

I'm looking for this book, because I want to bulid TV game (pong or tennis) and I really want to play with generating composite video
I live in Europe, Slovakia and here we have PAL video encoding, so if there is a book about generating composite video generating for simple games or even displaying text like on early tv terminals, I would be really thankful

I alredy read a Don Lancaster book about TV typewriter, but there are used lots of IC's that are no more manufcactured
I wanted to build some kind of tv display unit using TTL IC's, because I have plenty of them

I roughly know how TV video signal is generated, but i don't know how the timing circuit for snyc signal and video signal are generated and I don't know how to connect this kind of viedo display to microprocessor and how to interface it

I looked on computers like Galaxija and Interak Z80 computers, they have discrete TTL generation but they are used with microprocessor

So I want to learn how to generate composite video with TTL and maybe how to generate it with Z80 processor or how to build TTL display terminal and how to interface it with microprocessor, maybe if it would be possible maybe even a color video generating

When you say "in PDF" should we assume you to mean "Free"?
