- 17th October 2007: Mr. Do - Awhile ago, Timothy from Outerworld Arcade sent me a scan of Amidar bezel. I finally got to it last week, as I figured out how to do a few new things in Photoshop.

- 0.18: Some changes to music tempo in Amidar [Nicola Salmoria].

- 0.15: Sound support in Amidar [Nicola Salmoria]. All these require -frameskip 1 on my 486/100. I have no idea how accurate the tempo and pitch is. If you can compare it with a real machine, please let me know what's wrong. Added audio CPU roms 5c and 5d.

- 0.14: Nicola Salmoria renamed (amidar) to (amidarjp) and (amidarus) to (amidar). Since the US version is better, Amidar (Japanese version) has a worse attract mode and does not display the number of jumps left.

- 0.08: Mirko Buffoni added better colors to Amidar. Colors for Amidar derived from SPARCADE by Dave Spicer.

- 0.07: Added Amidar (US version). This version is quite different, it has a better attract mode and displayes the number of jumps left.
