- 31st October 2011: Mr. Do - TrevEB scanned the bezel for Warp Speed some time ago. Antny took it upon himself to complete the task, and even started working on it before the game was added to MAME.

- 0.143: Mariusz Wojcieszek fixed Warp Speed - Game now playable. Added preliminary circle drawing and analog controls for Warp Speed. Changed palettesize from 2 to 10 colors. Added dipswitches 'Coin/Time', 'Coinage', 'Service Mode', 'Unused' and 2x 'Unknown'.

- 24th June 2011: R. Belmont - Mariusz added the "circles" to Meadows Warp Speed and hooked up the controls, so it'll be playable in the next MAME.

- 0.142u6: TrevEB, Siftware and Mariusz Wojcieszek added Warp Speed (prototype) (Meadows Games, Inc. 197?). Warp Speed update [Mariusz Wojcieszek]: Fixed vblank interrupt and removed rom patches. Added coin input. Added preliminary starfield emulation.

- 2nd August 2010: Smitdogg - TrevEB dumped Warp Speed (prototype)! He also has scanned the bezel. Edit: It turns out Siftware has dumped one of these too but it was listed as unknown.

- 18th November 2009: Gamespeople (YouTube) - Warp Speed is an extremely rare game - only one is known to remain in existance. This was the last one of at least five prototype games that were shipped to Canada in the mid to late 70s to be tried on locations here in BC. I have to assume the game was not a success as there is almost no information about this game in existance on the Internet! I am going through what records remain from Dale Distributing (the importer) that I rescued when the Time Travel Warehouse was sold off back in 2006. More examples of the games tha twere in the warehouse can be found either on other videos I have posted or by going to our web site http://www.flippers.com/TimeTravelWarehouse.html.
