- 2nd June 2000: Aaron Giles sent in a Star Fire / Fire One update, fixing more of the graphics glitches, and he sent in an Exidy sound system update.

- 9th February 1999: Olivier Galibert work on Fire One that has help Star Fire works much better (with trails though). Here is a (real) story what true emulator freaks can do to help preserving old arcade games, and to document the arcade games' history. The fellow who dumped the roms of Fire One had to drive 5 hours (each way) to get the board from a leaky garage which had been used by cats as a litter box. Half of the eproms had corroded pins and the smell was probably very disgusting (Maybe he should mail the board to IDSA *evil grin* - He got the roms dumped, and then the newest addition to MAME team, Olivier Galibert, started furiously working on the game. As a nice side effect, Star Fire also works much better (with trails though). Still no sound in either of these games, and it seems very unlikely that the samples could be extracted from that non-functioning board...
