hap: oh, my memories fooled me . I am getting old i guess. Did not had a Game&Watch in my hands for a long time. I only own a Deputy Den, which is not from Nintendo, but the buttons act the same. So no lamps there, sorry for that. Is Deputy Den dumped ?

I have questions about the SVG format too. My Vectrex overlays are all done in Photoshop (cause I hate Illustrator) and i dont know how to export to SVG format. Is it even possible?
Nearly all overlays are vectors, but some are mixed (vectors and pixels). I want to make them all vectors, but currently have no time. Four remaining games, are sadly not even touched :/ and I dont think, I can finish them (too hard and painful work, at least for me). What shall i do?

Mr. Do: really great progress, awesome work and it looks decent.
