Long Beach Grand Prix has 28 DIP COP420-HFU/N, so it should be easy to dump. It has quite a few DIPs, I guess to produce sound effects.

I've got a Kenner Live Action Football coming.

BiggRanger sent me schematics of a printer that uses two TMS-1025 I/O expanders; one for input and one for output. He pointed out that the MS signal controls the I/O direction. I used a PIC to control a TMS-1024 and a TMS-1025, and captured some signals with a Saleae Logic. I also captured signals while playing Tomy Break Up. And I figured out how to electronically dump the lower 7 bits of the TMS-1040 in Break Up, and they match the visual dump.

The printer schematic identifies the TMS1025 as M50780, which is a Mitsubishi part number. And indeed, there exist schematics for this chip and several relatives in the 1984 Single-Chip Microcomputers databook on Bitsavers, starting on page 6-3.

TMS1024 MS(mode select) pin is emulated now, but can't really be tested until we emulate a device that controls it by software. I also fixed Tomy Breakup, by only updating the round leds on O write.

I emulated the last 3 remaining PIC165x handhelds:
- Caprice Pro-Action Baseball
- U.S. Games Programmable Baseball/Tandy 2-Player Baseball
- U.S. Games/Tandy 2-Player Football

Any volunteers for making internal artwork for the baseball games? Judging from the test-layout, the USG/Tandy one is an alright game. The Caprice game on the other hand, not good.

Ah, very different from the usual "blips and dots" ones smile and it even has an analog spinner?

Long Beach GP looks fun too, though I couldn't find a video of it.

The spinner is pretty cheap. There are 2 metal fingers that touch a metal sleeve wrapped around the plastic. The sleeve goes all the way around in one area and 1/2 way around in the other area. So you get a 50% duty cycle signal as it rotates.

I've been looking at Red Line Racers, but they are generally too expensive, and the LBGP was cheaper. I did just pick up a broken RLR. Even if it's toast, we should be able to figure it out.

LBGP's sound is pretty grating. Another one where if I had been a parent back then, I would have regretted buying it for my kids.

Might have a lead on a few Nelsonic watch boards that can be donated for decapping/dumping (Pac-Man, Frogger and Q*Bert I think)... Sean- you interested? Obviously they'd be blob-type chips, and the watches don't work in some way (no sound, LCD not displaying...), but I figure if you can get the blob off might be able to at least see what they run on...

You bet! I found a patent for a watch with a joystick, and that led me to a patent for a game watch using the OKI MSM50xx 4-bit MCU, so maybe that's it. Bitsavers has a databook with info on some later members of that family.
