This seems to be a good place to post this...

Howdy guys, an Undumped wiki editor from Emulab.it (and MAMEdev) poking my head in here.

As usual, I'm trying to ensure that the software for these PCBs match MAME's archives. (Yes, we care about preserving bootleg / licensed ROMs with copyright changes, etc. these days! Yes, we know that's a bit of a change from the old days!)

Zaccaria's a real mess given the number of third parties making conversion kits for their cabinets, Zaccaria making cabinets for other distributors, the number of licenses (and possible bootlegs) they were making, and so on.

Here's where we stand thus far (mostly thanks to Deb of Tilt.it's help on this):
Undumped (?): https://mamedev.emulab.it/undumped/index.php?title=Category:Zaccaria

Dumped: http://www.progettoemma.net/indice.php?fast=&ricerca=&textype=any&romset=&manufacturer=Zaccaria&year=

I'd like to verify that the software for these PCBs on the wiki (when it exists) already matches a set documented in MAME by another publisher, to ensure that it's been preserved.

If they don't (even due to a subtle copyright screen change to insert the "Copyright Zaccaria" text, but mostly ignoring different ROM size "splits"), then you should probably get in touch.

I'm currently trying to avoid getting into the "Other Zaccaria Products" list Deb has made, until I have a clearer picture on who was making them and who was distributing them, what counts as Zaccaria products and what doesn't: http://www.tilt.it/deb/zaccaria-en.html#altro

Appreciate everything you guys have been doing collecting information, and I look forward to getting a copy of vernimark's book Smiley

Greetz to (at least) Paul and Vernimark. Smiley

Thanks. Yeah it looks all TTL, maybe a ROM? that's a big chip in the bottom right...

Guys, so this is confirmed Breakout clone, so it does not use a CPU, correct? a PCB photo would be nice, thanks Smiley

Hey guys!

Can I get an absolute confirmation that there are no ROMs found inside this beast (film projector and otherwise), and any "programming" is done through the filmstrip or the other optical cards shown earlier in this thread? Looks like it's mainly TTL discrete / electromechanical?
