P.O.W. - Prisoners of War (US version 1)

0.34b8 [Bryan McPhail]


- Sometimes a small black vertical line appears on the right part of the screen (see snapshot). Whenever you kill someone they don't scream anymore and the machine gun noise is sometimes cut off too early. Some other sounds cut out early as well. Verified to happen on real pcb. gtmoa


- At 3/4 of the 1st level, there is a large pillar, which pops up too late. Screenshots 1 2. Inp. Updated by Stefan Lindberg in 104u6: It is a Mame bug it does not happen on my PCB.(Possible flag was removed). pow37b5yel Jonemaan / Stefan Lindberg
