- 0.142: David Haywood converted Act-Fancer to use the common DECO video functions and sprite code. Converted DECO BAC06 tilemap to be a device, reducing code duplication. Started moving common DECO MXC06 sprite controller code to it's own device files, reducing code duplication.

- 13th June 1999: Bryan McPhail fixed Act Fancer with a new romset.

- 0.35b12: Bryan McPhail added Act Fancer (Data East 1989). Doesn't work due to bad program rom dump and dipswitches are wrong.
