I noticed 1 bad bit on Entex Baseball 2 raw romdata: offset $128, change $7a to $3a.
@sean: can you also upload a pcb and bezel photo of it?

BTW if you want a complete Entex Baseball collection, there's also this one: http://www.handheldmuseum.com/Entex/HPB.htm

Cool! I'm double-checking the romdata right now.

Can you clarify these a bit?
darktower.txt:
- What is R8 index pulse?
- R9: which way does the motor rotate?
- How does the game know the reel position? If there's a sensor I'd expect it to be on the input matrix (K pins)

Oooh, if the Dark Tower centerpiece toy can get emulated, I can make use of its playboard and plastic pieces without the need for "C" (or "D") sized batteries any longer. smile

Hmm, not sure what I was thinking- there is a slot at the top of the PCB with an LED on one side and a phototransistor on the other; one is connected to R8, and for some reason I was thinking that was the input. I'll double-check the PCB and figure out which of the K inputs is used.

The top of the cylinder has a black plastic cylinder attached that has 8 slots; one for each position. One of the slots is a lot larger than the others. There are several pics of it from different angles.

The cylinder rotates counter-clockwise as seen from the top of the game. It takes about 3.5 seconds to make one revolution.

Edit- OK, I found it in my notes; the phototransistor (they might actually both be LEDs- I can't tell any difference between them) is connected to K8.

K8 is already on the keypad matrix. Or is R3 used to select the sensor?

R8 is connected to the LED and K8 to the receiver. I'll update the doc.

Ok I understand. I'll start on the emulation tomorrow (I found no bit errors, neither on ssimon).

Did you have any luck removing TI Little Professor stuck plastic?
