Yes. Entry 819 is just entry 812 but with the ending FF bytes trimmed off. Or 812 is 819 but padded with FF bytes, if you prefer. One of them is a duplicate.

Which would be the correct one to keep? Input from anyone more knowledgeable than me?

Thank you, Buckwheat. :3

Oh, and to add:

"Poker Face Paul's Cribbage" is the correct title. No dash. The title screen makes it clear they mean the character's name to be "Poker Face Paul".

The correct one to keep would be the one that reflects the actual chip. If both exist as official releases, I'd consider one an (alt) - probably the one with padding, as the trimmed would be more desired by most. We're about recording full chips here after all. If one represents something that isn't on a chip, then it should go. There have been some cases where a game may have been 12kb and released on a board with 8kb and 4kb ROMs, then later one with a 16kb ROM and 4kb padding. If you don't know, we should add a note that the chip needs checked for padding.

These look to be extracted from something else other than an original cart actually, though I'm not an expert on where they came from. If that is the case, I'd compare to the a real cart and consider these underdumps/overdumps if they are not from an official source. I'm not 100% on that, but I think it would be the approach.

It's a difficult issue. I've renamed the smaller one to "Poker Face Paul's Cribbage (USA) (Proto) (Source Code)" for now. I think we need to have in dat only full size ROM version (131,072 bytes).
