Bandai Datach SD Gundam: Gundam Wars Barcodes for MAME

SD Gundam: Gundam Wars (SDガンダム GUNDAM WARS) is the third game for the Bandai Datach. I bought it about four years ago and finally managed to sort and scan all the cards for the use in MAME.

This time, I also scanned the artwork, manual and a special card that wasn’t part of the original set. I’ll try to complete the previously released sets in the future as well:
Ultraman Club: Spokon Fight!!
Dragon Ball Z: Gekitō Tenkaichi Budokai

Barcode cards

These are the 40 cards (+1 special) for the third Datach game, SD Gundam: Gundam Wars, sorted by the character data on manual page 22 ff. The cards contain two barcodes (EAN-13) each, one on the bottom (B) with character data and one on the top (T) with command data. They have been read with Bytescout BarCode Reader and can be used with MAME. I have tried some of the codes, but not all of them. If you find any mistakes, then please let me know.
