    Awesome run, Doron !! And BTW, that strategy of mine is a hybrid of what Fred Pastore/Martin Bedard does plus my own tweaks.

    You actually reached 4400+ extremely fast...only Fred and Martin to my knowledge reached that threshold faster so you are in most excellent company indeed.
    Thanks Doron thanked this post

    TODO:
    
    
    - Analog sound missing in many games
    
    
    - Missing color PROM for "Alpha Fighter / Head On"
    
    
    - A few of the games have an extra 18K pull-up resistor on the blue color gun, Carnival, for example. Colors inaccurate? Blue background?
    
    
    - Does Digger run too fast compared to the real machine? The timing is implemented according to the schematics, but who knows...
    
    
    - Dipswitches need verifying in most of the games
    
    
    - DIP locations need to be added to all the games
    
    
    
    
    NOTES:
    
    
    - Head On and Space Attack had both color and monochrome versions. There is a game configuration option to switch between them.
    
    
    - There existed a vertical version of Head On as well
    
    
    - All games: Start a game. If you insert another credit while the game is in progress, your current game immediately ends and you are brought back to the credits screen. - Tafoid (0.120u3). This was confirmed as *correct* behavior a long time ago? Haze. On page 2 of both Gremlin's Blockade and Hustle manuals has printed text that reads: If at any time the t.v. screen shows meaningless display or the game otherwise malfunctions, simply drop a coin into the coin mechanism. This should correct the problem. If not, the game requires service. The circuitry in [name of game here] has been arranged so that the insertion of a quarter thru the coin mechanism will reset the restart in the system. This clears up temporary problems caused by power line disturbances, static, etc. This text is also on Depthcharge [1977] and Head On manuals [1979] too. It isn't printed on Carnival [1980] manual, but it should be same hardware feature as earlier manuals describe. It isn't an arcade bug, but a manufacturer feature for Gremlin games although it might seem like a bug behavior.

AM_RANGE(0x00, 0x1f) with a global mask of 0xf made no sense. Removed misplaced Irem 'Head On' PCB info, it already is on top of the m10.c driver where it belongs [hap]. Added some comments [gregf].

    - 11th August 1999: Phil Stroffolino sent in a preliminary Samurai driver, which is missing sound and colors but otherwise playable.
    
    
    - 0.33b6: Removed carnival.c driver.
    
    
    - 0.33b5: Removed safari.c driver, machine\carnival.c, vidhrdw\carnival.c and vidhrdw\safari.c. New flag IPF_RESETCPU for input ports. When this flag is set, CPU #0 is reset when the key is pressed. This cleaned up the Vicdual driver [Nicola Salmoria].
    
    
    - 0.33b4: Merged carnival.c and safari.c with vicdual.c driver. Lots of clean up, consolidation, dipswitches additions and color fixes to the Carnival driver (which is now called vicdual.c, since Carnival is just one of the many games which run on that hardware) [Marco Cassili].
    
    
    - 0.33b3: Added safari.c driver and vidhrdw\safari.c.
    
    
    - 0.27: Added sndhrdw\carnival.c.
