Impressive work on this guys, thanks for your effort. These kind of systems weren't something that I was particularly interested to begin with, but since this thread popped out I've been following it with great attention.

Have you scanned (or taken pictures of) artwork for any other games btw? Artwork for some of these would be very important to go along with emulation.

I scanned some stuff for Code Name:Sector, but that's it so far.

I usually try to buy the cheapest games I can, and those are generally not in the best shape, or are missing pieces. Also, a lot of the games are molded plastic in odd shapes, making it tough to get good pics or scans.

I didn't get the cards for Electronic Detective, but I was glad to see the instructions etabeta found included all the info from them.

Thanks for the scans sean.

Yeah I understand some of them will be difficult, especially the games with plastic pieces. But some good pictures for those would be better than nothing I guess.
But to play the games that require extra plastic pieces or boards best way would also be to actually own the physical pieces or boards. Can't really see other way of playing them.

I mostly meant scans for the overlays or game cards or high resolution pictures of the actual handhelds like Merlin or Split Second for instance since those games could definitely use an overlay.

I wouldn't be too much worried if they aren't in the best shape, a bit of photoshop work can do wonders.

What system is the NEC chip in? Another 4-bitter to add to the pile!

I also got a Coleco Total Control 4 with the Football cart, but it'll be the end of the month before I've got the time to transcribe it.

I read here that Garry Kitchen (who designed Bank Shot) took the prototype of Wildfire from the Doyles (who designed Merlin, Code Name: Sector and Stop Thief) and turned it into a product.

The NEC chip was used in some vfd tabletop games. Kevin Horton is able to dump them, he's dumped Epoch Dracula and Tomy Alien Chase.

It's also used in old Roland synths, such as the TB-303.

Does anyone know what the Entex Select-A-Game uses? It's a VFD system that has carts with MCUs, but I don't believe I've ever read what MCU they used.

Speaking of Entex anyone looked into any Entex led games yet to see what chip they use? I mean games like Entex Baseball 1 to 3, Hockey, Soccer, etc.
