- 0.31: Aaron Giles added Gauntlet and clones (2 Player) and (Intermediate Release 2). Renamed (gauntlet) to (gauntir1).

Aaron Giles fixed sprites in Gauntlet and added 16 bit color support for games which need it (e.g. Rastan, Gauntlet, Black Tiger, and many others).

- 0.30: Aaron Giles added Gauntlet (Atari Games 1985). Only the hacked version which doesn't require a slapstic is supported. Colors are accurate, however the palette is reduced from a 16-bit IRGB (4-4-4-4) to 8-bit RGB (3-3-2) color space. Aaron added a cpu_reset() call so that a single processor can be reset during execution; Gauntlet needs this to work properly.
