VTxx Dumping Thread

Don't know if you've already seen this, but I found this website: https://github.com/altr0n/arcade-classics-re

Basically explains how to dump Basic Fun handheld arcades. Can't really provide any more insight past that but it might be useful (?)

I do know that the Qbert handheld hides some strange secrets - apparently it has Centipede (another basic fun handheld) coded inside, and I also found a test screen. Test screen is interesting as A. it doesn't appear on the centipede model, and B. it plays the same music found on all the recent bootleg handhelds (the badass song in the mogis and sy-88b among others). Maybe there's an entire menu in there, and they just forced some random pirated multicart to start at the qbert section?

I don't suppose the graphics on that example are broken because Nintendo Tetris is an MMC1 game and the machine is designed to handle a different mapper?

Main giveaway is that the 1989 text is intact while everything else is scrambled. I don't think its necessarily a mapper issue rather than the game itself - nes tetris uses a weird graphic method that makes the game hard to clone. its also used in punch-out and probably a couple other games.

What hardware do these systems run on?

The serial number for it is dgun2953, is this nes based?

I think that one might be something like a VT369, but I'm not sure

Does anyone have a backup of all of DavidsTech's ROM dumps? They don't seem to exist anywhere else (aside from 4 of them on a Chinese forum)
