So you are only missing ES2212 Smiley

BTW the electronics inside the cartridges are really 'complex':

Nice find, Gert. Is it a pong or a console. I really curious about how the racing game works.

It's a pong console.  Smiley
The two "analog" games of my Videopac pong game are based on the ES2201.

The race game consists of two curved vertical lines (the street) and your "car". The curves are moving up or down, so with your controller you have to move your car to the left and right to follow the curves, because the game ends when your car touches a line.
The speed of the curves can be changed, and also the distance between the two lines.

A lot more complex than the "cartridges" of the Odyssey1 console...

If you want to play this game you don't the ES2212 cart: you can make it from a spare ES2211 cart.  Smiley
The PCB is the same, and most of the electronic components too.

It took a while to figure this one out but indeed you start the road moving with the button and then you need to keep clear of the lines. It looks very simple but it is not. I assume the picture is more 'stable' on a real CRT set instead of the LCD we tried it on. The picture was quite a bit jumpy but it was also with the Federball cartridge, the ball there had a mind of his own, especially when you touched the button while the ball was moving Smiley

Hmm, I could alter the width of the road (at least the right hand side moves when you turn the dial) but how is the speed changed ? It already seemed quite fast but that could also be because of the LCD.

If I remember correctly it can be changed with the other controller.

Ah, that would make sense as it is the only other input device left  Cheesy

I asked because some sites, like http://www.old-computers.com/museum/default.asp?st=2 use to refer to it as a console, same thing with that nice Coleco machine called Telstar Arcade.

I don't know the exact definition of "console".
You can play different games by inserting cartridges, so therefore I think you could call it a console.
But since it doesn't have a microcontroller or a videochip, the possibilities are limited. You can only have a maximum of three objects on the screen, but the size and shape of these objects can be changed within pretty wide limits.

Found the instructions for the Autoslalom at http://www.pong-picture-page.de/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1716&osCsid=rsr8qpuss24knqi9rem9c4gs51



It is indeed the other controller which sets the speed.
