- 0.28: Rewritten the decryption routines in Pengo. Merged Pengo and Pac Man vidhrdw

- 0.27: Thanks to Gary Walton, speed in Pengo should now be closer to the original. The unencrypted versions of Penta and "pengopop" are no longer supported because they are just hacks, not coming from a real board. The *original*, *encrypted* versions are now supported instead. They are exactly the same, the only difference is that they are encrypted and come from real boards. The names now are: "pengo" original Pengo with "PopCorn" music, "pengoa" alternate version (earlier) with different music and no slow screen draw and "penta" the bootleg called Penta.

- 0.26: Added clones 'Pengo Popcorn Music' and Pengo (alternative version).

- 0.15: Brad Oliver fixed a illegal memory accesses bug in games using 224x288 and 288x224 modes (Pengo, Pac Man, Rally X).

- 0.02: Added clone Penta (bootleg 1982).

- 0.01: Nicola Salmoria added Pengo (Sega 1982). Very special thanks to Sergio Munoz for the precious information about the Pengo sound hardware and colors.
