- 0.141u3: Atari Ace cleaned up a few include files in TH Strikes Back.

- 0.130u3: Peter Ferrie added small workaround to get Thunder Hoop 2 past the "bad coprocessor" screen, but the game still has issues. Aaron Giles merged memory maps.

- 0.63: Manuel Abadia added TH Strikes Back (Gaelco 1994).
