- 9th September 2007: Mr. Do - Faster than a speeding bullet, and juuuuust in under the wire, Zorg has finished vectoring Superman. This one is outstanding folks.
- 0.118u4: Stephane Humbert slightly changed the C-Chip emulation for 'Superman' to behave in a similar way as other Taito games. Changed 'Unknown' to 'Unused' dipswitches.
- 26th August 2006: Mr. Do - Added Superman bezel from and Mean Arena. Some of these decent stuff are so-so; some are REALLY good.

- 0.34b6: Howie Cohen and Brad Oliver added Superman (Taito 1988). Note: According to Richard Bush, the C-Chip is an encrypted Z80 which communicates with the main board as a protection feature. In Superman, it's main purpose is to handle player inputs and coins and pass commands along to the sound chip. The 68k queries the c-chip, which passes back $100 bytes of 68k code which are then executed in RAM. To get around this, we hack in our own code to communicate with the sound board, since we are familiar with the interface as it's used in Rastan and Super Space Invaders '91. TODO: Fix y-scrolling glitch (visible on part 2 of Round 1). Investigate "COIN ERROR" at end of Round 3 (Las Vegas) C-chip. Optimize rendering. Does high score save work consistently?
