If it's okay, I would like to volunteer tracing the SVG. laugh

Fine by me smile but I think it'll take a while before Sean gets to it.
If the LCD really is broken and needs manual work to create the SVG, you'll still need a scan of the electronic traces so you can make it look authentic. A scan will also be helpful for IDing uncertain LCD segments.

Also looks like a regular XaviX release, so will provide further evidence to help me :-)

A broken LCD is no problem for the earlier G&W games, the games are very linear and it's easy to find out which output is which lcd segment.


This interview makes me think that the earliest G&W games didn't use any sort of CPU. It will be interesting to find out for sure.

"Yamamoto: Izushi-san and I became significantly involved in the series with Game & Watch: Fire, which was the fourth game. At first, we didn't do programming, but made the game through the hardware.

Iwata: In other words, you didn't write programs like you would today, but made the game run through circuit design.

Izushi: Right. That's how we made Color TV Racing 112 and Color TV Game Block Breaker. Just by seeing the specifications for the game, we could imagine what the circuit should look like. So we used a soldering iron to make the prototype of Game & Watch: Fire."

Here's a teardown of G&W Fire(1st version), you can see a single QFP chip. I assume it's an MCU, but I won't rule out that it's a custom ASIC.
