- To enter into input test mode in wc90 & wc90a, keep pressed one of the start buttons during P.O.S.T. In wc90t keep pressed both start buttons during P.O.S.T. until the cross hatch test fade out. Press one of the start buttons to exit.


- Clone wc90b: Has video problems - check the snapshots, some players are cut at left and bottom of the screen - this has always been this way, could it be a badly programmed bootleg? Update: Also affects wc90. wc90b36b11gre Bugfinder / mach

- Clone wc90b: Scrolling is jerky and slow. Specifically, it seems that it doesn't refresh properly. Main set and other clones are unaffected (mainly because they are on another driver...) wc90b056gre_1 Kale

- Clone wc90b: On the Credit display screen, the PCB shows the upper part of the stadium. In 0.56 the game shows the midfield. Only this clone is affected. wc90b056gre_2 Kale
