rik: that ultraman work looks great! yes, cleaning the bitmap up BEFORE processing is a very important step. If you have clean bitmaps, the resulting vector is fairly painless. Removing all the blowholes and stray pixels is not too tough if you select all the black areas in groups and just dump black in there. If there's any greys they get wiped out. I do a final conversion to 2 colour bmp and then clean up after that.

the edges are well defined and straight so I don't see why that wouldn't work well.

Huh? Atari Touch Me is older than Simon isn't it, did TMS1700 exist? Unless you mean Tiger Follow Me, title mixup.

Jungler ext artwork is done: http://tsk-tsk.net/net/temp/gjungler.zip

Oops, yeah, Tiger Follow Me has the TMS1700; I also dumped the PIC1655A from Atari Touch Me.

Anyone done anything with one of these yet?

Haven't opened it yet, but was going to eBay the one I have so I figured I'd ask first. smile

Sean could explain how you made that photo showing the segment connections for Tiger rzonejedilcd.jpg?

For G&W Mickey & Donald, the photo here snapped by Lord_Nightmare is the best we have currently: http://tsk-tsk.net/net/temp/dolan/

I took pics under the microscope, like I do with chips. I was able to adjust the lighting to get a fairly good image- I haven't had the same luck with other LCDs.

In the Jedi pic, you can see that 4 of the "traces" have black ovals- those are the common connections. The Konami patents show capacitors on the commons, but there are no caps on the PCB. The Konami LCD panels have 8 commons and 33 segment connections, and some of the commons are connected to the same pins on the SM-51x. I guess that made routing easier.

I should be able to build rigs for different LCD panels that would let me activate all the segments and take pics like I did with the Konami games. It's a bit of work, but it doesn't harm the panels.

I thought Mego Fabulous Fred was related to Tandy 12. I've got it on my ebay watch list, but it always seems overpriced.

I was taking a set of pictures of one of the Konami chips last night, but had to cancel and start it over because there was a 4.2 earthquake a few miles away that blurred out a bunch of the tiles.

I really messed up the name of the game with the TMS1700- I used Atari Touch Me in all my notes and filenames. It's actually Tiger Copy Cat model 7-522. I also have a Sears Follow Me with a TMS1000 which is the same as the older Tiger Copy Cat. And I have 2 Atari Touch Me games- one with a PIC1655A and another with an unknown AMI chip.

Pff, a microscope =)
Makes me think... hypothetically is it possible to show the connections when viewed under xray?

Good luck redoing the Konamis

Rik can you make a photo of the Fab Fred PCB? Tandy-12 MCU has label CD7282SL (it's a TMS1100)
*edit* hmm, Tandy-12 has 12 buttons, Fabulous Fred has 9. Not equal then.
