I filled in the Starfox segment titles.

I uploaded bikermicelcdsegs.jpg, but I think I cleaned up the svg; it just needs the background layer and whatever else you do to the svgs.

Oh ok, then after image is cleaned up, to get a "raw" SVG the only thing that needs to be done here is ungroup it(click on image, press ctrl+shift+G). Here it is: http://tsk-tsk.net/net/svg/tbikmars.svg

I do the background artwork when I have the game running in MAME, got nothing to test it with otherwise.

Wait, I thought the 1998 Furby used a TI MSP50C6XX chip, and the later ones used sunplus/generalplus chips? Or did the 1998 Furby have two processors, one for the action part and another processor exclusively for the speech?

1998 Furby has the Sunplus as the main processor and the TI for speech and IR communications. Unfortunately, the patent wrapper doesn't include the TI code. Both chips are globbed onto little PCBs that are soldered to the main PCB. The patent has tons of details. I noticed the line
Quote
MICROFICHE APPENDIX
This application includes, pursuant to 37 C.F.R. ยงยง1.77(c)(2), 1.96(b), a microfiche appendix consisting of four (4) sheets of microfiche containing 297 frames of a program listing embodying the present invention.

Oops, 300 pages of code, not 200. And unfortunately the patent wrapper contains about a dozen copies of the patent itself at about 60 pages each, as well as about 30 more referenced patents, many for creepy-ass dolls. They could have sent fewer than 1/2 as many pages if they had just listed the referenced patents instead of printing them out in full.

A fellow asked me about the AY-3-86xx TV ball and paddle games, so I decapped a couple: http://seanriddledecap.blogspot.com/2018/05/ I've got a couple more coming.

More Tiger handhelds coming; first, Rocket Ranger Rocketeer: http://www.seanriddle.com/rocketeer.html

I bought Super Mario Bros and Super Mario World watches. Hopefully the MCUs and LCD connectors are the same as Starfox.

I also bought an IXO Telecomputing TC101. It's a handheld data terminal created by Holly and Robert Doyle, who created Merlin, Wildfire Pinball, Stop Thief and Code Name: Sector.

Those were used on a lot of the Coleco Telstar systems. Do the chips basically package transistor transistor logic into a single integrated circuit?

Some later systems like these used MCUs. The Telstar Arcade, for instance, had carts with an MOS Technology MPS-7600. I believe I have all the games for that.
