hap: ah nice that you got pac-man working. I have another D553C game to add soon; bambino superstar football. I dumped the micro but I have to vector the VFD and trace the PCB first... not sure if I will get to it tonight or if it will be tomorrow.
There's still 1 thing I'd like to confirm about Tomy Pacman: Is plate#8 always-on? And if it isn't, how does the game access it?
