additional information
info 0.35b13 [Zsolt Vasvari]

WIP:
  • 0.141u1: Brian Troha added DIP locations for Zodiack.
  • 0.130u2: Guru added board description to Zodiack.
  • 28th July 2006: Guru - Zodiack (Orca 1983) and other games just arrived in 2 huge boxes. I think most of these are just for fixing issues in MAME (snd/gfx etc). Big thanks to Tingoes.

  • 0.35b13: Zsolt Vasvari added Zodiack (Orca 1983 (Esco Trading)).
  • 17th May 1999: Zsolt Vasvari sent in a driver for Zodiack.
LEVELS: 99 (endless - after 99th level, the level counter crashes)
