Jakks Pacific game missing

In all the documentation I looked through, I couldn't find anything talking about this game: https://avatar.fandom.com/wiki/Avatar:_ ... er_TV_Game

Is it supported in MAME? Does nobody care because there's no rom for it? I recently remembered I had this when I was a kid and was hoping to emulate it, and that led me to discover it seemed to be missing from MAME.

Thanks!

Looks like the TV game is not, but it seems to run on the GBA.

If you have trouble with the MAME GBA emulation, you can try another emulator.

We have one.

It's one of the units where the CPU and ROM glob are very, very close together, and the traces are a fraction of a millimeter thick. Sean has to solder 30+ wires to those traces, and between the limited space, and how tiny the traces are, he's had zero success.

Technically possible, but might require some kind of robotic assistance which nobody has access to.

Although it is cool this works, I was already pretty sure this was the case and was specifically curious about the TV game.

Good to know I'm not the only person who's looking into this. I plan on returning to University next fall. Do you know if they might have the type of equipment your referring to? I'm still undergrad so I wouldn't know myself but if I needed it for a capstone for example they might let me use something like that.
