Does anyone know the difference between the game code roms for Fire!?
My pin, a friend's, and another I visited all have the L-2 game code Rom. But there's a L-3 available, what would the improvements be? Changes in game code weren't really documented till 1990 or so.

Morning Bump. Does anyone have the Fire! L-3 roms installed? If so, what Changes did you notice?

I'll check my ROM versions later and get back to you Eric.

checking the database, there is limited info if you open the .txt file for the ROM within the .zip download:

Williams: Fire!
ROM Revisions

Game Version L-3

U26 : Checksum: 776D
U27 : Checksum: E7EC

Sound Version L-1

U4 : Checksum: 4952

Speech Version L-2

U21 : Checksum: 9B54
U22 : Checksum: CB4C


Check the filesize of the ROM image to confirm what
size EPROM to use:
