    Submission Message
    Hadn't played this one in a few months, until my stream a few days ago. I fired it up again yesterday off stream, and after some really solid games, I smashed my PB, and managed to keep it going for a new world record. A very nice surprise, especially since I would have been pleased to hit 1.2 million!

    Want to give a little shout out to two great players, and previous WR holders on this game - Max Haraske (@Max) and Michael Sao Pedro (@Falcor781). Thank you Max for introducing me to the game on one of your streams, and thank you both for the very kind words of encouragement and congratulations on the score - you guys are fantastic gamers, but even better dudes! Race ya to 2 million! :)

    Thanks for reviewing.

    - venture, mtrap: Coin 1 and 2 are listed twice in the key mapping. When the "coin" buttons are pressed, 2 addresses are checked (look at the info in the source file), and the only way to handle this is to have the keys mapped twice... stephh
    - fax, fax2: Need lamps hooked up in exidy.c Mr. Do (ID 03555)

    - 0.165: Fixed missing sounds in Spectar (audio\targ.c) [Osso].
    - 0.150: Removed includes\targ.h. Modernized the Exidy sound device. Moved Targ/Spectar audio functions into driver state while having no luck in fixing missing sounds in Spectar (audio\targ.c and includes\exidy.h) [Osso].

    - 0.118u3: Atari Ace added new AM_READ_PORT() macro which lets you define an input port read callback based on a port tag.
