The S/38 never had S/36 emulation.  It was a conversion of OCL to CL
required if you moved, along with some minor RPG tweaking, and Screen
Format source to DDS conversion.

It's the S/38 that was the odd one out of the S/3, S/32, S/34, S/36
The bastard love child of Dr. Frank Soltis !    :-)

The AS/400 brought the S/36 into the S/38 family, not the other way
