Hi Frank,

Nothing is wrong wih your SC. When we did Worship the Woodgrain we discovered
this as well and were unable to fix it by doubling the rom and such. You'll
find that Haunted House, Space War and Ghost Manor exhibit strange behavior
as well  As a result these titles never appeared on WTW.  I am not sure what
causes the problem, but I bet Bob Colbert or Eckhard could investigate if
they have time :-)

BTW: Breakout won't work either. You have to double the rom image and then
make it a wav file.

Good luck,
