Off the top of my head... Lost Luggage (Green label vs Blue Label), Missile
Command (with and w/o Rob Fulop's initials).

Their are apparently some rom differences in some of the Activsion games.. like
Space Shuttle , Decathalon, Robot Tank. These are more due to bankswitch
schemes. I am sure Eckhard can comment more about these.

BTW: I have 3 revisions of Asteroids. The very 1st one has a bug as described
previously, but also has shots that have a shorter range. Then there is the
fixed version and the title screen version.

Tonight, I will be dumping prototye of Millipede. I am told that it is a
unreleased version that Dave Staguas made to fix (add) a couple of things after
Atari relesead it. Stay tuned....
