That would be a good idea to make a new thread for the Hanimex HMG-7900/Soundic SD-200.

So i'll unhijacked it by giving this link: http://project-megs.blogspot.ca/

It's a new blog about the Electronic Handheld Games in MESS (err...MAME!) that i would make simulators about games that have no micro processors (aka 4-bit CPU's) like those Electro-Mechanical handheld games (example: Marx TV Tennis) and also put information, scans and artworks for upcoming or already emulated games.

Go take a peak! =)

Nice one, looking great I always thought bezels would help a lot on these. Getting yourself into more projects eh? smile

By the way I was thinking on adding a section for Electronic Handhelds to the wiki. Basically everything that's being worked on the basis of this thread, this way we could gather all info (dumped games, artwork, undumped games, missing info, etc.) in one place for easier reference.
Links can be added to relevant sites such as kevtris or sean's website.

Is this a good idea? If so I would need some help in order to get a list of everything that has been dumped/emulated so far. I know hap posted a list a few months back, but I see a lot of progress has been done since then.

If these artworks are accurate to the handhelds (?) then I'll happily add them to the MESS Artwork page smile

Wow, I've just found out about the Takeshi's Castle LCD game and I really wonder how would it be possible to make it work in MAME:

Its display must be manipulated whenever the character enters an underground passageway, which somehow makes the colors get inverted to make it look like a dark room.

Pretty original stuff for an LCD.

Looks like it's just increasing the contrast, but is an interesting use of that.

Indeed! That is a great idea doing a wiki for electronic handheld games, this way we'll known which games are dumped (or not), working status, extra artwork and the whole shibang!

Oh and they should also be place by category of display (LED, LIGHT, VFD, LCD and Color LCD).

­­@Stiletto: The ones i have done are accurate, these were scanned from the original handhelds and vectorized.

@ICEknight: Inverting the display is very easy in fact, you need to rotate 90 degrees the polarizing sheet (the tinted sheet) and you invert the display. This is how it's done with Color LCD games, they rotate the polarizing sheet and put a light source behind the LCD display (like the Panoramic Game & Watch) or they uses white LED's or light bulbs as a light source.

This is how it's done for the Takeshi's Castle game, the person rotates 90 degrees the polarise film sheet. =)

Alright I'll get it started soon then, yeah having the display category was something I was going to add.
I was actually thinking on using that to categorize them so we don't have different display types mixed together.

I'll start with the driver info Stiletto posted and the list posted by hap a few months back, then we can add others that will probably be missing.

That's some really interesting info that I completely ignored, so thanks a bunch.
