MAME Info:

0.100u3 [David Haywood, Corrado Tomaselli]


- 0.111u4: Changed Z80 CPU2 clock speed to 3750000 Hz. Removed 'Unknown' dipswitches.

- 0.102u3: Fixed YM2151 volume.

- 0.101u1: Sonikos balanced the sound in Metal Saver.

- 0.100u4: Brian Troha improved Metal Saver dips. Added protdata rom. Added dipswitches 'Lives', 'Coinage', 'Language', 'Life Meter', 'Time' and 18x 'Unknown'.

- 3rd October 2005: David Haywood - With some help from Corrado Tomaselli of the Italian MAME Forum, Metal Saver is now running in MAME. The game is by First Amusement, but the company logo is very similar to that of Semicom, as is the protection. I wonder if First Amusement was the original name for Semicom prior to 1995 when the first known Semicom game was released.

- 0.100u3: David Haywood added Metal Saver (First Amusement 1994).

- 23rd September 2005: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Metal Saver. The PCB is identical to Final Tetris.
