Thanks, it looks good now. All are added and playable =)

Double Dragon piezo connection is simply via R1? Or R2 used too?

Cool! DD has just R1 (or maybe R2; it's one of the traces between BS and beta) connected to the base of a transistor via a 100K resistor. The collector goes to battery -, and the emitter goes to one lead of the piezo. The other lead is connected to battery +. There is also a coil across the piezo. I guess that was louder than using R1 and R2, and justified the cost of the resistor and transistor.

Various of these Tiger LCD Handheld games have been released in Brazil by TecToy as the series "Minigames TecToy Série Master"
I think that for most of cases it's only localizations for the Tiger LCD games, but there are some exclusive titles such as Cebolinha, Mônica, Chaves, Senninha, Chico Bento, Xuxa no labirinto da Mocréia, among other titles based in popular Brazilian characters

While I think that these may be hard to find in other countries, they're relatively easy to find at MercadoLivre (Brazilian ebay counterpart)

Grr, another USPTO failure. I ordered the patent wrapper for 4492582, the Mattel Children's Discovery System. The patent says there is a 192-page appendix with source code, which sounded interesting. The USPTO is now selling PDF versions of older patent wrappers for 1/4 the price of printing and mailing a copy. I ordered it on June 5 with a 25-day processing period, but I figure that's probably business days, and July 4th was in there. So I sent an email today to ask about it, and got back a notice that they are refunding the order because "the paper file is not available". I'm not sure if that means that they can't locate it, like 4165159 with the Rockwell PPS-4/1 Hardware Manual, or if it's only on microfiche, and they won't convert that to PDF.

sean: the USPTO person told me back in february that the listing of patent wrappers on the website in electronic form for $25 is in error...
They would not deliver it in paper form until I paid the balance.

The paper patent wrappers I got a couple of years ago were $210 each.

I've got a couple more on my list; I'll try to order a PDF of another one.

Total cost for the wrapper I ordered was $225ish, including shipping.

Yep, you're right- I found a receipt and it was $225. If they will actually send a PDF for $55, that would be great. That's less work for me, too; it's a hassle to tear apart the bound ones and scan them. Did they tell you the $55 was incorrect? I hadn't tried to order a patent wrapper for 2 years and there was no electronic format available for the old patents then.

I ordered it for $50 electronic, then called them later asking why it hadn't shipped, and they said it was a screwup and I'd need to pay the balance; when I received it it still had the form for $50 on it, but I did have to pay the extra.

In your case however its possible they really did lose the file...
