I sent you a lot of unsorted junk, I'll name what I can here, if you don't recognize any of it or it got trashed, it's ok I never needed this stuff back.

and the PCB of a Leapfrog Leapster, I have no image for that.

I also sent the ROM board from an Apple eMate 300, somebody might be interested in adding it, though I don't think we have a newton driver.

Not sent to you but to the Guru a long time ago, also don't need back. I think he dumped it and the dump has languished for a long time. The system is odd as the 3 differently sized discs push down a button to load different in-built games, they are not CD's just plastic discs.

I saw JAKK's have a Pokeball version. Shaking the ball to catch. The button light up when shaking it. The long LED screen is at the bottom of the ball inside. Very weird game.

If this ever get dump then I wonder the mouse can be use as shaking the ball. Hold the button while moving the mouse. Let go the button to catch. smile

incog: there's a standalone Newton emulator with source, and I'd certainly be interested in attempting a driver.

Holy fuck, that hits right in the childhood. That is, until my little brother slobbered into the link part, damaging it entirely.

I found the Pokeball and Grandstand dies. I need to clean the Grandstand die, but I can't see any bits in the ROM array.

Barcode Battler was sent to Kevtris along with Cassette Vision.

I'll scan the Leapfrog Leapster before doing anything with it. The ROM glob is on a daughterboard with .1" headers, so it'll be easy to solder to. There's a ROM on the PCB to help figure out the pins.

I've got the Skannerz PCB, no LCD. There's just one glob. I've also got the emate board.

I don't have or remember Pokewalker, NES Plug and Play or Bible Search. I do have a triangular PCB labeled New TV Gun PCB that has 2 globs.

The triangular PCB is Mission Paintball https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51T754R1VTL.jpg

Should be Sunplus SPG200

the cartridge pinout and some documentation is here:
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/drivers/leapster.cpp

i sent you a PCB from a german Leapfrog Leapster 2 also with the last package....should be a 8mb system rom, as the leapster 2 contains a full game inside thw handheld.

i'm currently dumping 15 new US-cartridges for the system...

keep in mind that Leapfrog Leapster will require me to actually write the Arcompact CPU core one day, and if I've learned one thing over the years it's that I suck at writing CPU cores; I should just nuke what I have and start again, the idea was to eventually convert what was there to a generation script that processed files describing the opcodes, but at the moment it's just a shitty generator that outputs a hardcoded set of stuff and doesn't have all the opcodes with a weird DASM format that is still as it is because I was in the process of trying to understand the opcodes myself and log any unused bits (because it's a really annoying and inefficient instruction set where half the opcodes have 'don't care' or 'don't set' or 'reserved' bits etc.)

There's a chance any rom dumped from it will match what we already have.

In terms of 'likely to see emulated anytime soon' Leapster is pretty low down.
