Wow, that was fast!

Though it's currently not useful for me to read, it's very good
to have it - just in case. I always scan through similar code
and examine the 'How it's done', when I'm stuck with my own 
stuff :-)

That's what I like about reverse-engineering, too :-)

Most of all I'd like to know how the scroller in
'Fatal Run' is done and how much RAM/ROM it consumes. 
The Music Driver might be interesting, too :-)

Another interesting thing might be the Midnight Magic Flipper.
(My fleamarket brag this weekend. :-))
At least I found it interesting that it seems to display the score
via six-char in the middle of the flipper table, i.e. the ball
has to *cross* it...

I do from time to time. Outlaws & Starmaster were fun to examine.
But the next reverse-engineering I'll probably do might be the
dungeon creation of either 'Sword Of Fargoal' and/or 'Gateway To Apshai'
on the C64...

But none of this will happen this year... I've another task to complete
first. I see a productive week coming again - by the end of august :-)
