I tried to ping both without success two days ago. Sad to hear.

The museum’s definitely an eye keeper, as i’ve Never seen that game cart before.

coleconut answered me, and as I guessed sending the cart away is not interesting to them. Well that will not stop me, I'll just send a dumping rig their way.

Ah! great to know.

Out of curiosity, can you ask whether he knows about the museum game? I know he tried to go after anything pencil 2 related.

I have notified members of mysilicium: I believe they are in possession of one, maybe a few, card games for the pencil 2.

No answers yet, but one of the games one of the users have is treasure hunt. Should anyone have specific infos on big foot chase, that would be great, as aside from the canadian pcmuseum, there is absolutely nothing on this one.

It also appears to be a pencil 2 exclusive (several titles seem to have been ported or were planned to be ported to the pencil 2 directly from the arcade, CBS and emerson arcadia: ladybug is such a title).

Also, PLGdavid, I believe coleconut should have both treasure hunt and secret garden (not sure he knows about big foot chase though).

If the carts use the same M5L2764 eproms, time is not on our side. I've had many die on me or ROT.

In the mean time I just mapped out the cartridge slot and its _exactly_ mapped like the ColecoVision.

Traced out the main MREQ decoding and its a 74LS138 (typical)
With A=A15, B=A14, C=A13 (other way around in Coleco but doesn't matter)

Y0:$0000 (BIOS EPROM)
Y1:$8000 (Cart pin 18)
Y2:$4000 (External memory slot pin 18)
Y3:$C000 (Cart pin 2)
Y4:$2000 (External memory slot pin 16)
Y5:$A000 (Cart pin 22)
Y6:$6000 (RAM chip)
Y7:$E000 (Cart pin 27)
