Hello My account was finally approved so, I'm new here (but I've been following this thread for quite some time!) nice to meet you all.
I'm the french guy who recently sent Tsukuda's 'The Dracula' to Sean Riddle for him to dump. So a big thanks to him and to @hap for all your work (and even including the 'hidden' factory/test mode in the menus!). It's working beautifully in MAME!
Apart from 'The Dracula', I also sent other LCD games to Sean: - the french version from Epoch's 'Monster Panic', the white one on top on this page https://www.handheldmuseum.com/Epoch/MonsterPanic.htm, with different 'sprites' and machine design than the japanese one... And 2 others japanese LCD Games from Epoch that aren't listed on www.handheldmuseum.com : - 'Monkechi the monkey', which you can see some gameplay here:
- and 'Mickey & Minnie Jungle explorers', which you can see on this video:
(many great japanese handheld games on this youtube channel BTW)
So, hopefully these 3 others will be preserved & playable in MAME sometime in the future...
I've been working on some Bellfruit fruit machines for the past month or so... turns out one of them uses a TMS1000 for sound:
The chip in question is MP0027A which was originally used in the Chroma-Chime doorbell. I was wondering if anyone might already have one of these as I'm seeing that MP0027 got documented in hh_tms1k.cpp recently? The original and A version should be compatible, the songs on them are the same at least. Even if nobody has one, we found a doorbell that should 99% have the chip in it on US eBay and there's folks willing to put the money in to get it dumped. Nothing critical here as it's just for one machine, but would be nice to get a chip sent to Sean or anybody else doing the decapping and get it dumped at some point.
