Quoted from ChrisHibler:
Question: How can the English vs French vs other be distinguished on the download site?
If the "mouse over" popup has no suffix, like (FR), does this indicate English?
For example, 705 are English ROM's for Genesis, 705X are French and 705Y are German ROM's.
Does that make it more clear?
Quoted from xefned:
This is great! Thanks for making it available. I'm excited to help my pal get his #Arena running on free play. I just have one uncertainty. How do I know which version of the Arena prom to download and burn?
The FlipProjets download page (http://www.flipprojets.fr/Proms80B_EN.php) has a choice for "709 - Arena" and "709/1 - Arena." It's probably just because I am not a pin guy (yet anyway) that I don't understand the difference.
Can someone explain the difference to a newb? Thanks!
Gottlieb used the "/.." to refer to updates. 709 is the first release, 709/1 means 709 update 1, 709/2 means 709 update 2 and so on.
I would use 709/1 in this case. When using these freeplay rom's don't forget to set all coin related dipswitches to "off" position (Dips 1-5, 9-13, 17-21).
By the way: If you encounter a software release not already patched by the magnificent Davroux brothers please make images and upload it to them so they can patch it to a freeplay version and publish it.

some piece of crap emulation package
Too bad and not necessary.
It would be nice to read some more details why this went wrong for other people.
I compared the files with what I am having in my library.
In there are files which are marked rev 0; these are images from a board repair I did a few years ago (when the labels just read 709 I name the images rev 0 as a reference for myself). They match the rev 1 files list at the flipprojets site.
Other files in my library which are unmarked match the "rev0" files at the flipprojets website.
Is it possible the rev 1 <=> rev 0 at the flipprojets website?
