Changes from revision 1.0:
Added French language text translations.
When a magic token is set to give the player a credit, the
free-play percentage audit is now chalked when the token
Added an adjustment to make the knob-numbers random during
spins. Some players were able to pick their numbers entirely
too often, which made the odds of success much too high.
Choices are YES (random) and NO (sequential). This adjustment
factory sets to YES (random).
Changed the replay system so that scores accumulated during
Assault on the Vault are not counted in the auto replay
Fixed message and choreography when a token is won from the
gift lady or ‘?’ game. In version 1.0, these cases would
say “free credit” instead of “free token” , and wouldn’t
wait long enough for the token to be released.
Patched a bug in the lamp effect system that would sometimes
cause the game to crash when the assault mode jackpot shot
New rule added for ‘call guard’. This is now a random
chance of the guard letting you into the board game for

Changes from revision 0.91:
Initial release to production.
Ordered Lamp Test implemented
Conditions of the optos at powerup are tested
to help determine if the 12V supply is not working.
Added the continue/quit choices back to the board game.
Defaults: On for GERMANY, off for USA.
Increased the duty cycle of the ramp divertor slightly
to compensate for divertors that were not able to hold the
mechanism in when flash bulbs were firing.
Changed the token spitter process(es) to not log audits
for vended tokens during test mode. During test,
error cases are cleared out, but no feature audits
Added more specific token errors to the user-report for
each particular side – empty and consecutive misses.
Also, made sure not to report token system errors if the
tokens are turned off via the feature adjustment.
Added more robust code to the token releasing code
to help with broken switch(es), and to help the operator
better diagnose what the game thinks is wrong.
Reworked logic when you reach the vault to handle cases where
tokens are allowed but the mech is marked jammed. The
player now will get a REPLAY if permissible, with a magic
credit powerup, if the feature has been enabled.
Changed the sequencing of the REPLAY effect if you win
one as you reach the vault.
The “magic token accept timers” are totally functional.
Both flippers or the start button will speed up the
timer. Credit button presses while the timer is running
will be eaten. Once the last token is inserted, a display
effect of the “credits” flavor is launched to tell the
player that their last token was credited.
Implemented a family mode adjustment. If the adjustment
is set, the cop will not get shot at during the beginning
of assault mode.
The lamp effect for a whole drop bank shot during tnt
multiball no longer uses the wheel lights. This is so
players can see that the mode is adding time.
Left kicker now spots a drop target if an entrance is not lit.
Player’s wheel position is now restored each ball during multi
