Service Mode:
Service Mode reflects the local configuration after playback ends, not the recording. Service Mode is accessed by enabling the DIP Switch which can be toggled with the Service Mode Button (F2 - this inserts a credit) followed by a reset thus cannot be recorded in an INP. A test input screen is presented with the DIP switches displayed in read-only binary format. Two optional modes are hidden in Service Mode.
1) Simultaneously press P1 Start button and P1 Button 1 to display a grid visual test: use the same key combination to exit.
2) Simultaneously press P2 Start button and P1 Button 1 to enter the level display mode which begins with a colour test screen. Used P1 Button 1 on its own to progress through the level screens until returning to the input test screen or use the key combination to exit the mode.

Default Settings:
NOTE: Somewhere between 0.123 & 0.124, the "Carry Bowls To Next Life" DIP was renamed to "Difficulty". "Difficulty = Easy" is the correct translated setting for 0.124 or later.

In MAME 0.107 and earlier, "rev 2" was actually "rev 3" all along.
- 0.108u5: Mathis Rosenhauer rewrote the Atari vector generators, using the schematics and actual state machine PROMs. The state machine is now emulated so timing should be much more realistic. Clipping hardware in bzone and others is emulated instead of hardcoded. Improved accuracy of clocks and various other bits of cleanup. Changed M6502 CPU and POKEY sound clock speeds to 1512000 Hz and visible area to 1045x801. Added PROM ($0 - DVG PROM).
- 0.121u3: Changed visible area to 1045x789.

- 0.153: Derive (fake) refresh rate from CPU IRQ frequency to reduce juddering [Alex Jackson]. Changed VSync to 61.523438 Hz.
- 0.195: Use 74LS153 device for dipswitches [Dirk Best].
- 0.198: Configure all lamp/LED outputs as line callbacks. Added cocktail configuration that flips screen for 2nd Player [AJR].

TG Game Entry: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/as...xe-rev-2/mame/
Rules, Points: https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=7676

The rules were written to reflect MAME 0.106. MAME 0.106 had an "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 2)" in ROM set astdelux: so if this is what the OP has submitted then it is correct.
In MAME 0.107u4 this set was renamed (description only) to be "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 3)" after rev 1 was added to MAME:
- 0.107u4: Added clone Asteroids Deluxe (rev 1). Changed parent description to 'Asteroids Deluxe (rev 3)' and clone (rev 1) to 'Asteroids Deluxe (rev 2)'. Renamed (astdelu1) to (astdelu2).
So from MAME 0.107 the rules (as written from the perspective of 0.106) were referring to the Asteroid Deluxe rev 3 in 0.107 and beyond.
The MAME rules were then incorrectly changed, for a time, because the description was followed, not the ROM set:
