Mappy is definitely not Sharp SM5. And there is some tricky routing under the glob (4 signals at the bottom are routed up to the top).

Shark Island is obviously a Toshiba 43381. I have another Tandy game with that chip, but I haven't done anything with it yet.

Space-N-Counter sure looks like a Sharp SM5, but the designer's web page makes it sound like it's a Toshiba chip. If it is a Sharp, it would have to be deglobbed to dump it visually; there aren't enough pins bonded out to dump it electronically.

Yeah, I was hoping that someone had a base unit that had a chip instead of a glob. The one I was sent had a glob, and the test pins weren't bonded out, so I couldn't experiment with them.

Oh, I see... I'll check mine when I get them out of storage. I know one is a glob, but I have two of them... They are probably all the same though.

I can donate them all, so if you want to deglob them and see what can be done, that's fine by me. smile

The released game is on TMS0970 instead of i8080, cheaper to produce I guess

They are there, but not properly named (gnw_boxing, gnw_dkjr, etc.)

Sorry for the confusion, I renamed them back again to the old ones.
As Osso pointed to, this was due to the romsets being renamed in MAME. I was too rushed renaming the files on my website, I'll update them when MAME 0.194 is out.

That Space Invaders game is a crazy design. The horizontal player movement is mechanical.
I'm curious about it, I'll take care of writing down the hex data for that 1.

Sean could you capture the R1 pin for some SM510 Tiger games? Just the ugly start jingle is fine. I'm not certain emulation is correct here.

No problem. It all good. Using both right now. Didn't have to rename those back. Send the old ones to the old area. Or upload two dat files for the clrmamepro. smile
