The SM510 ones(top 3 on the list) are still WIP. I've set the 'not working' warning flag on the others as well, until they're confirmed playable with external artwork.

When I get Pair Match emulated, I can make internal artwork for it. It only supports rectangles, circles, and text but that's good enough for this game. See for example the internal artwork for efball: http://imgur.com/WzLkIrJ

hap: looks great! do those 5 games I dumped run in any fashion? i.e. bleeps/bloops, or are they just "added"? I am not 100% what it means that they are added I guess :-)

There's three games that I loved when I was little, thank you so much for preserving them in a proper way and emulating them.

For those who have never played them, once the next version is ready I recommend trying TMNT and, very specially, Jungler.

Pair Match A88 has been fixed. Dropping the voltage down to 8V or 9V worked and I got what I think is a good dump. You could see repeated bytes in the old dump, and now that's gone. I dumped it 6 times and got the same CRC so I am gonna say it's probably OK now.

I replaced the files in the pair match directory.

I also redumped vtech invaders- it looks a lot better now. I lowered the voltage a little bit on this one too and got consistent data then.

It is sitting in its respective directory too.

VTech Invaders is playable now. I added Pair Match too, and that one is also working fine. =)

Spelling B showed up today. No serial # on the back, but the date code is 0479 and the copyright date is 1978. There are 2 chips: 40 DIP TMC0272NL DAS 7901 SINGAPORE and 28 SDIP TMC1984NL DAS 7849 SINGAPORE. 5 caps, 5 diodes, 2 resistors and a transistor. VFD is 8 digit, 14-segment plus decimal point and apostrophe.

The difference is that the 1978 version is dual-mcu as you described, and the 1980 version hw is like Mr.Challenger: TMS0270 + VSM ROM.

I hope you don't mind these gifts :P
- Little Professor 1982 version, assumed it uses a CMOS version of TMS1000 series MCU. Since we already emulate 2 of them, figuring out the details hopefully won't be difficult.
- TI DataMan (1977)
