UPDATES

• 1.50 (May 5, 2010)
- The left ramp and the sniper post were holding onto the ball for too long (in some cases). This has been corrected.
- Ball search was allowed to run when the ball was being held on the left ramp for choreography. This has been corrected.
- Fixed operating system bug that would cause the music volume to spike up to a high level and remain there until the game was power cycled.

• 1.44 (September 2, 2009)
- Fixed a problem with persistent style auditing that could cause the game to stop running in 50HZ countries.
- Roughed in a rule for 'Escape'.
- Added lamp effects and display effects.
- Roughed in 'Save the President' and 'Master Agent' modes.
- Fixed a problem with the game over "music". If a high score was earned and the match effect did not run at game-over (via tournament, or by the match feature being 'off'), then the high score to date music would run until a new game was started, or until the game was power-cycled. This has been corrected.
- Fixed a problem with the NUKE jackpot. The score was being initialized at power-up and then only increased. This would eventually result in massive NUKE jackpot scores if the game was never powered off. This has been corrected.
- Added a game name message for the Beta-Brite sign.
- Extra ball and Special were not scoring points when the corresponding awards could not be given out. This has been corrected.
- Roughed in skill shot.
- Multiballs were not being restarted when add-a-ball was awarded during various multiball grace periods. This has been corrected.
