    TODO:
    
    
    - Sound: Not possible without PIC dump? The PIC is protected, sound will have to be simulated the kickgoal sound rom is also bad.
    
    
    - Should the screen size really be doubled in kickgoal or should the fg tiles be 8bpp instead because otherwise these don't seem much like the same hardware.
    
    
    - Both games have problems with the EEPROM (settings are not saved)
    
    
    
    
    NOTES:
    
    
    - Fix "bug" that prevents game from writing to EEPROM (DRIVER_INIT).
    
    
    
    
    WIP:
    
    
    - 0.160: Removed PIC16C5x MCU fake I/O memory map in KickGoal driver [hap].
    
    
    - 0.135u3: Added includes\kickgoal.h.
    
    
    - 0.61: Added kickgoal.c driver and vidhrdw\kickgoal.c.

    TODO:
    
    
    * Dump or trojan the PIC16c57 sound CPU
    
    
    
    
    NOTE:
    
    
    - In Action Hollywood you can select 4 stages: Temples of Chaos, Excaliwood, Transilvania and Galaxy War.
    
    
    
    
    WIP:
    
    
    - 0.146u5: General cleanup and improved gfxdecodes in Kick Goal driver [David Haywood].
    
    
    - 0.135u3: Fabio Priuli added driver data struct and save states to Kick Goal driver.
    
    
    - 0.123u5: Changed PIC16C57 CPU2 clock speed to 4MHz.
    
    
    - 0.123u4: Corrado Tomaselli changed/verified clocks and OKI6295 pin 7 in Action Hollywood. Changed OKI6295 clock speed to 1MHz.
    
    
    - 0.122u6: Changed PIC16C57 CPU2 clock speed to 3MHz.
    
    
    - 0.97u3: Quench added preliminary sound support for Action Hollywood. Added PIC16C57 (750000 Hz) CPU2 and OKI6295 (9090 Hz) sound, changed visible area to 352x240. David Haywood changed description to 'Action Hollywood'. Renamed (holywact) to (actionhw).
    
    
    - 0.96u2: Pierpaolo Prazzoli fixed end-of-sprite list and flip screen in Hollywood Action.
    
    
    - 0.95u6: David Haywood fixed 'Hollywood Action' video hardware - Game now playable. Changed visible area to 352x224.
    
    
    - 23rd April 2005: David Haywood - I fixed Hollywood Action (or Action Hollywood?) and its now playable. There is no sound because its controlled by a protected PIC so the sample playing mechanism will have to be simulated as was done for Super Slam.
    
    
    - 0.95u3: David Haywood added Hollywood Action (TCH 1995).
    
    
    - 19th March 2005: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Action Hollywood.

    Should've read the notes about this game not writing to EEPROM! That explains that... well, I was at work & kinda rushed.

    This game defaults to Difficulty: Easy in the internal settings, but it appears that you can't actually change this setting to match the rules (because of the EEPROM problem). Unless anyone can think of a sneaky way to get this done?
    And if not, I'd be willing to bet that all previous scores in this track had the same issue.

    Well played, Don!
