I'm doing a repack of the category. The new links will be online today or tomorrow.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Awright....thanks. I look forward to reading any of the manuals of the recently emulated led handheld games...especially any of the Mattel Electronics led games.


I forget that entries are only supported once a game is emulated within MAME source code which is why I can see Meadows Bombs Away logic schematics being supported while the For Play games schematics won't be supported yet until they are emulated. These are logic schematics only...no scans of the manuals yet. Meadows Bombs Away manual print did not have a green color cover like the late 1970s era Meadows games, but was only letter size pages held together with a staple.

When I had schematics scanned in 2018, I was envisioning it would be for pcb owners at the time which is why I had paid for both non-color scans and color scans and letting users select what would be readable. The For Play games logic schematics scans of Rally and Sport Center are readable whenever they are supported, but the Bombs Away schematics ink was already faded when I bought Bombs Away schematics in 2015. I explained that in my 2018 post.

Meadows Bombs Away logic schematics with enclosed files of both format of scans in color and in black and white.

The crappy part to mention is these are less quality because of the condition of the paper. Sheet one of the two sheets has severely faded ink and barely visible.
