* Hint : Tempo plays a big part in the throw, forward motion should match backwards motion in speed or you'll go over the stake.

* A Trick : If you just hit the control key without setting your name after getting a high score, some of the default names you'll get are 'rat', 'dog', 'pig', 'rad'.

MAME Info:

0.35b13 [Aaron Giles]


- 0.146: hap fixed atarivc_eof tag and shortened playfield_upper(15 chars) tag to playfield_up. This fixed missing/corrupted graphics in Shuuz.

- 0.139u1: Aaron Giles changed atarigen_state to be a base class from which all the related Atari drivers derive their state from.

- 0.135u4: Some more Atari driver shuffling [Aaron Giles]: Added atarigen_init() function which allocates all timers and registers for save states. Updated all drivers to call it. Converted some drivers to use device timers.

- 0.135u3: Aaron Giles converted atari drivers over to using driver_data for the most part. Some shared systems still exist with globals, but this tackles the atarigen module and the variables local to each driver.

- 0.114u4: Fixed rom names.

- 0.114u2: Aaron Giles and Couriersud added more accurate video timing to most of the Atari 68000-era games. The parameters are from published specs, not derived. The board uses a VAD chip to generate video signals. Changed VSync to 59.922743 Hz.

- 0.114: Couriersud added general save state support to the atarigen module.

- 9th November 2002: Aaron Giles fixed the sprite/background priorities in Relief Pitcher and Shuuz.

- 17th November 2000: Aaron Giles fixed graphics priority problems in Shuuz.

- 0.36RC1: Changed 68000 CPU1 clock speed to 7159090 Hz and OKI6295 to 6779 Hz.

- 0.36b1: Removed AY-8910 sound.

- 0.35b13: Aaron Giles added Shuuz (version 8.0) (Atari 1990) and clone (version 7.1).

- 10th May 1999: Aaron Giles sent in a nice Atari update with two new drivers: Rampart and Shuuz
