0.30 [Mike Balfour, Dave Fish]


- Pig Newton doesn't read cocktail controls (might be game bug)

- Astro Blaster v1 dies when you first start

- Verify Pig Newton and Sindbad Mystery DIPs

- Attempt 005 sound

- Fix Space Odyssey background

- Figure out why Astro Blaster version 1 ends the game right away


- Many thanks go to Dave Fish for the fine detective work he did into the G-80 security chips (315-0064, 315-0070, 315-0076, 315-0082) which provided me with enough information to emulate those chips at runtime along with the 315-0062 Astro Blaster chip and the 315-0063 Space Odyssey chip.

- Special note (24-MAR-1999) - Sindbad Mystery does *not* use the standard G-80 security chip; rather, it uses the Sega System 1 encryption.

- Thanks also go to Paul Tonizzo, Clay Cowgill, John Bowes, and Kevin Klopp for all the helpful information, samples and schematics!
