Easy to clear out the high scores when desired. Simply put the game into selftest (using the cabinet selftest switch). Once in selftest mode, press (and hold) all four of the following buttons (left,right,fire and thrust). The screen will imediately show "ERASED" indicating the high scores have been cleared out. This is the same procedure used by Asteroids Deluxe to reset the high score table. See Installation Instructions for detailed directions.
Fixes the "missing last letter on the 10th score" bug. There is a bug in the Atari REV2 code wherby every time you start a game, the last letter (initial) in the 10th score is erased. This kit codeset has the fix to that errata.
