Micro Vs. System: Donkey Kong Hockey has now been preserved in MAME smile

The unit is very similar to the two other Micro Vs. System units as it is based on the SM511 has a wider screen than the other Game and Watch units.

Here's a screenshot from the game:

Thanks to JustDesserts for lending out the game!

With this game completed, all games in the Game & Watch series has now been preserved in MAME. Thanks to everyone who has participated and been involved in this effort! Special thanks to hap, SeanRiddle, IgorRus, JustDesserts, hydef, DarthMarino, Mr. Do, Haze, all other helpful people here on the forum and in the MAME team and all who has helped with funding, lending out their games or helped out in other ways!

Great work, this is an epic achievement and to think a few years ago no one (or almost no one) thought it would even be possible to dump and emulate Game & Watch games and that simulators would be the best we could do and now fast forward a few years the whole collection has been preserved and is fully playable. It's exactly because of stuff like this that MAME is fantastic. Thanks to everyone involved on this.

But, don't we still need this one grin:

The ROM is probably the same as YM-105, but would be nice to have artwork for it.

The artwork is already an option in the New Wide Screen Super Mario Bros:

I would love it if this preservation efforts of LCD game’s could continue. The work made on that front is fascinating as is already.

The supposedly bugfixed purple version of Judge doesn't seem to have been preserved yet.

Correct. Likewise, a bugfixed alternate version of (I think) Chef is also not preserved.

The good news is that the bugfixed version of Judge is in a different case color, and so should be relatively easy to track down if anyone is willing to put in the time. The bad news is that the bugfixed version of Chef requires opening the case and reading the marking on the chip package, which I doubt any seller would be willing to do.

I was aware of Judge and Helmet, what's meant to be fixed in Chef?

For Helmet, I thought we had the fixed version (or am I mistaken) so low serial number Japanese originals are probably going to have the buggy version.

See driver TODO: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/drivers/hh_sm510.cpp#L17

So, known to have different revisions not dumped yet:
- Cement Factory TT
- Helmet
- Judge

need to improve SVG:
- Egg

verify program rom:
- Egg
- some of the tabletops, and contest version of Super Mario Bros (IMO, if a collector checks the PCB and verifies MCU label is the same, it's sufficient)

accurate dump of melody rom:
- a lot (I expect plenty of small errors, but hard to notice for end-user)
