Does anyone have (or could anyone make) a good scan of the Vidiot Deluxe schematics from the Granny and the Gators manual?
I've found a few sites with the same horribly granular scan, and I can't seem to track down an original manual.

I know it's generally similar to the Vidiot in Baby Pac-Man, (minus the integrated sound board, plus an added TMS9928 video generator) but the scans are too crappy to decipher how the video from the two TMS9928s are mixed.

Thanks for any info...

Well, I do not have the real schematics.
What I do have is a Tech Chart I created.
Maybe it will be of some help for you.
Look on my website http://www.inkochnito.nl in the Bally section.

Unfortunately you are stuck with those. This was a huge complaint in Tech Services that did not get resolved. The master drawings are in the large format like the old Atari drawings and then poorly shrunk down for manual printing. They changed draftsmen and used a new program. This was around the time the 6802 MPU was released and carried over into the 6803 games.

The old hand drafted schematics were pretty good. I had been trying to locate the master files through Planetary for some time. If they are there they are lost in the paperwork that came from IP. I left before I could locate any. If I had the time I would obtain a vidiot deluxe and redraw those but someone else needs to pick up that task.

Here are some pics of the schematic page. You should be able to magnify. Hope it helps.
