Sadly still have the issue.

After reading this: it might actually be a sync issue (but not the connection to the RGB connector, as RF has the same issue). Though reading that thread I have little understanding how to actually try that fix... Though it also looks like this before it went really bad:

Does anyone know what I can do to fix it? I feel like I'm at a dead end.

Tried quest for the rings (Dutch version) as an easy reference. Maybe someone can see better now what the issue is?

TNT, Gun, Water (drowning), Dagger (curved on end, otherwise it looks like a sword), Poison.

That is how I see the graphics.

The first batch (1 to 13) Videopac games was manufactured in the United States for the European market.

Then, all Videopac games were made in France by "La Radio Technique" (Radiola).

This factory has manufactured all Videopac games for PHILIPS (European market), Radiola & Schneider (French market), Siera (Dutch market, Belgian, Portuguese, Israel and the Middle East) but also for Thomson JOPAC (French market).
Siera's game cartridges have been re-labeled (the Philips label was sometimes still under the Siera brand).

The first batch (1 to 13) made in the United States consisted of glossy labels and shiny cardboard boxes.
The 2nd batch (A, 1 to 26) made in France (Philips & Radiola) was made of cardboard.
The third batch (1 to 60) was in a plastic box (Philips & Radiola).

There is no Schneider label or Schneider box because it was a "new product" for the brand Schneider in 1984, but it was the end of Videopac production.
Siera was only in a plastic box (A, 1 to 38).  Huh?

My arguments and questions.

First, we have to think about the group: you have 1,2,3,4 and A. Who does not belong to the group?

Here we have one (that's what we could conclude), that the elements are murder icons, where the word TNT was placed, because the game needed 5 icons and Odyssey only has 4 sprites for that. The game starts by asking the player: Enter Crime

The idea of ​​the mouth is an interesting sight but it is not exactly a crime.

A syringe would really fit the case, but the contents of the syringe would be poison. We already have the poison represented by the skull, which is a universal symbol. We argue here that it is a knife, for the knife, when a crime icon, almost always comes with a drop of blood on its tip. We also suspect that the first crimes that would come to most people's minds would be knife and gunshot. Murders with sharp objects are the most common. It's something that makes the game more believable, we don't want to have something like murder by big toe bite.

Stab wound. It's interesting though, it doesn't fit the group.

Drowning: Quite creative. The question is, if you don't put the figure, would anyone come up with this reasoning? Could a 9-year-old see this? Wouldn't it be easier, for example, a drop of water?

Thanks for the replies so far. I live in the Netherlands. As I said in the initial post, only four of the Siera games have an actual Siera sticker on the cartridge, the others have a Philips sticker. They do have a Siera cover though. Before I start considering selling them I want to find out if they are correct or not, maybe mixed up in the factory, I have no idea. Hopefully somebody can shed some light on this.

I also have the feeling that there is an active homebrew scene, would those released games be considered as a 'requirement' for having a 'complete' collection?

I think this is quite relative and everyone has their own concept of what it is to have a complete collection. My primary search has always been the games released in Brazil, the collection of 60 games, I ended up discovering a game released by another company that nobody knew. Then I ended up getting excited and leaving for the Odyssey Aventura magazines. I am fascinated by the Odyssey cover art, so for example, I would never be interested in those black number one covers, for me one of the least attractive covers ever released in videogame history.
