TODO:

- 1 pixel granularity in the window's placement (8 pixels now, see daitorid title)

- Coin lockout

- Some gfx problems in ladykill, 3kokushi, puzzli and gakusai

- Are the 16x16 tiles used by Mouja a Imagetek 14300-only feature?

- Flip screen doesn't work correctly in Mouja due to asymmetrical visible area


NOTES:

- Sprite zoom in Mouja at the end of a match looks wrong, but it's been verified to be the same on the original board.


VIDEO HARDWARE NOTES:

- The Metro system has 3 Scrolling Layers and 512 Zooming Sprites.
