Hey Rik, are there any cases the handheld collector community already know about? Or was this news to you too?


I didn't know about this one in particular, but I know it has happened before... Karnov maybe is the same as another game? I can't remember which one it was now, but I remember the topic came up in conversation as someone had two games that were exactly the same except the LCD artwork... Cheap way to make a new game!

Interesting- Gauntlet and Robin Hood are ROM ID 583 and Karnov is ROM ID 582. So maybe at some point they started recycling older titles? Or maybe they had leftover MCUs but the original licensing had expired?

Yeah, I'm sure Tiger recycled games sometimes. Another example is Heavy Barrel and Terminator. It's not as bad as Elektronika's dozen of egg game clones though.

Apollo 13 and Robocop 2 are added and working.
I kept going game over very quickly on the 2nd level of Apollo 13, so I went looking for a bad bit in the ROM but didn't find any. It turns out the game is just very confusing to play and it's working fine.

Awesome, though of all the things I thought I would see, MC Hammer looking like vishnu taking a dump wasn't one of them

I was searching around on the net about talking calculators and discovered that mame has a driver for the TSI speech+ (./mame64 speechp) This is so awesome!

Maybe one day we'll see the Sharp elsimate talking calculator or the Radio Shack Vox Clock (which also uses sharp chips).
