    Submission Message
    I am submitting my previous MAME WR performance for this track since others from MGL 50 have gotten recent scores accepted on it.

    I would have submitted to this track long ago but thought I could not given the wording, however since it weighs towards the expert skill index on Vanguard overall I feel other players should be able to submit to this track if they meet all the other rules for it. Otherwise other Vanguard players like myself simply cannot compete on the expert skill index without submitting to this track like others have in the past. I could score millions of points on the normal MAME track and still be below the #1 expert according to TG based on this track.

    First life 309,480 points at the 24:58 mark.

    Happy Gaming!

    - 22nd November 2020: Mr. Do - Added bezel, marquee and control panel artwork for Vanguard. Cleaned for MAME by Dreamstate. Scanned by Paul Swan.
    - 0.221: Paul Swan added clone Vanguard (Germany). Note: Dumped from a Germany sourced Zaccaria Vanguard cabinet PCB. Continue text is in German. Only the program ROMs were dumped, but the other ROMs labels match the original SNK version and are believed to be the same.
    - 0.152: Changed M6502 CPU1 clock speed to 705562 Hz.
    - 0.133u1: Renamed (vangrdce) to (vanguardc) and (vanguarj) to (vanguardj).

    -  2nd September 2007: Mr. Do - Zorg vectorized Vanguard, which replaces the existing bezel. Very pretty.

    - 26th August 2006: Mr. Do - Added Vanguard bezel from MAME.net and Mean Arena. Some of these decent stuff are so-so; some are REALLY good.

    - 0.16: Nicola Salmoria added joystick support to Vanguard.
    - 0.14: Brad Oliver and Mirko Buffoni added 'Vanguard' (SNK 1981). Based on Brian Levine's Vanguard emulator. Game is playable with wrong colors and no sound. Runs on hardware similar to Nibbler. Control: Arrows = Move around and S, D, E and F = Fire. Nicola Salmoria fixed bug which sometimes caused 6502 games not to run (actually they did run, but interrupts didn't happen).
    - 30th July 1996: Dumped Vanguard (SNK).

    0.14 [Brad Oliver, Mirko Buffoni, Brian Levine]
    0.10 [Nicola Salmoria, Brad Oliver, Mirko Buffoni]
    - 0.226: Update audio\snk6502.cpp to new stream callbacks [Aaron Giles].

    - 0.150: Modernized snk6502 device [Osso].
    - 0.144u2: Angelo Salese fixed bogus irq mask bit in SNK6502 HW games (IRQ mask bit was masking BOTH lines before).

    - 0.129u4: Changed 'Custom' sound to 'Rockola Custom'.
    - 0.129: Phil Bennett correctly setup the MC6845 device in the Rockola driver. Changed VSync to 60Hz.
    - 0.126u4: Added includes\rockola.h.
    - 0.122u8: Cleaned up the Rockola driver. Fixed dipswitches for all games. Added notes about the games [Stephane Humbert].
    - 0.113u2: Changed VSync to 61.246745 Hz.

    - 0.81u5: Rock-ola improvements [Curt Coder]. More cleanup. Added SN76477 interfaces to other games, not connected yet, needs discrete sound expert. Added Vanguard SHOTB sound effect.
