07 is Race N Chase
08 is Ice Hockey
Classic Football is the same game as Superstar Football, the difference is the case/buttons color and a 3-color VFD.

I doublechecked the ROM data of 2 Coleco h2h games and Entex Raise The Devil, no errors were found but I still want to recheck the bits behind a bad smudge via disasm (h2h football, row 5 col 10)

This one was easy. I vectored the keypad for it since it does not have a display.

I posted Entex Electronic Poker Info: www.seanriddle.com/tms1100.html

And a video for timing: www.seanriddle.com/entexpoker.AVI

This one is a TMS-1370. The only pinout I could find was a one-page diagram of various TMS chips showing the TMS-1300, but it has errors. So there's a chance my assignments are incorrect, but they mostly make sense.

Oh yeah I forgot about race n chase. Classic Football does indeed have a different VFD, but I didn't know if there were other changes or not. It's the only Bambino game with a multicolour VFD. The rest are all zinc sulfide (cyan) with various filters over the top, usually blue or green.

I posted Entex Jackpot Blackjack Gin Rummy: www.seanriddle.com/tms1400.html

And a video: www.seanriddle.com/entexjackpot.AVI

This one's the first TMS-1670, but I think I figured out the pinout from the PCB wiring.

Could you post a PCB photo of these two?
And what's the VFD serial? it's probably on the back of the VFD panel.

*edit* On Entex Poker, I'm pretty sure there's a bit hiding under the smudge in the rightmost column. If you have a high res die pic, can you double check it with that?

As for Entex Select-A-Game. I thought we had a skeleton driver for it in MESS but I must have confused it with Entex Adventurevision (drivers/advision.c).

It will have to await its turn. Or does another dev want to take it?

The Football cart was mentioned here before, it must be TMS1x70.

I'll scan the PCBs and upload them. The VFDs are Itron FG1114.

Edit: I uploaded the PCB scans with the other pics. Sorry about the crappy desoldering job on the chips- my desoldering iron tip pretty much fell apart and I had to order more, but I didn't wait.

It's odd that 9 and DL are mapped to the same input on Poker, since it has a 4x7 button matrix and almost 1/2 of the positions are unused. But I took apart the keypad to make sure.

I didn't realize that inside the back glass of VFDs that you can see the traces going from the pins to the various grids and segments. I guess it's conductive paint like rear window defoggers use. It helped me figure out the pinout. www.seanriddle.com/pokervfdb.jpg

I don't have a top metal shot of Poker because the die was stuck in plastic, but here's the highest res pic I've got. I don't think there's a bit there, but I'll clean the die and take another look.
