- 18th March 1999: Zsolt Vasvari has added RC filter functions to all the games which use the Time Pilot sound board (early Konami games like Time Pilot, Pooyan, etc).

- 0.12: Nicola Salmoria added Time Pilot (Konami 1982) and Space Pilot (bootleg). The games runs on the same hardware as Pooyan. Colors come straight from Mike Cuddy's emulator. Issues: The ROM copyright message and the dipswitch menu are unreadable. Time Pilot doesn't have consecutive letters in the graphics ROms, Nicola will have to modify his text routines to handle that. This game uses double-width sprites for the clouds, but Nicola haven't yet figured out they are selected. The code is currently a hack - just double the sprites which Nicola know are used for clouds. The memory mapped read port at c000 puzzles Nicola.
