CPU Release 5.00
Date July 2, 2007

Game ROM 1M U210 $F0FF 5.00 spp-cpu.500

Changes from Game ROM v4.00
---------------------------
- *** THIS GAME ROM REQUIRES DISPLAY VERSION 5.00 OR HIGHER. ***
- Mystery award no longer gives the same award back-to-back in competition
mode.
- Mystery award no longer lights extra ball if one was already lit.
- Mystery award no longer lights special if one was already lit.
- Kwik-E-Mart standup now changes digits correctly in competition mode.
- HSTD Reset now also resets Grand Champion (there is now no way to manually
erase the non-grand-champion scores, they will reset themselves only on
the HSTD Reset Count adjustment). This is to address not being able to
change the default grand champion score.
- If an Otto award gets stacked in the display queue, it will now show the
correct shot that was doubled (previously it would generally always show
upper playfield at 2x scoring if it was queued).
- Homer's TV-lit speech now takes priority over Krusty's quotes again, and
will also be heard if the display effect doesn't get to run.
- TV start effects now stack after combo and other awards.
- Couch lock and multiball start animations now stack after combo and other
awards.
- Major award events (e.g. TV mode start, Otto award, Treehouse awards) now
only hold up the device they are associated with, not all kicking devices.
- Combo awards now awarded before anything else on a given shot.
- Itchy and Scratchy eject now double-checks to make sure the targets are
actually down before trying to eject the ball. It also waits until any
drop target reset process is complete before kicking.
- Otto eject now has more low-power kick table entries.
- Couch multiball start lamp effect now called from the display effect.
- Couch multiball start lamp effect now goes away properly if the start
display effect is blown off.
- New U.S. default pricing, 1/.75, 3/$2.00

CPU Release 4.00
Date July 14, 2003

Game ROM 1M U210 $4FFF 4.00 spp-cpu.400

Changes from Game ROM v3.00
---------------------------
- *** THIS GAME ROM REQUIRES DISPLAY VERSION 4.00 OR HIGHER. ***
- Now properly light special during SDMEWM.
- Fixed a bug in switch dispatching that would sometimes cause a switch
to either double-register or register on powerup.
- Fixed a nasty bug with Mystery awarding LIGHT LOCK in higher difficulty
couch locks. If you were on a multiball that required LIGHT LOCK to be
hit in order and had already completed the LIGHT portion, then got
LIGHT LOCK from Mystery, you would not be able to progress towards
Couch Multiball anymore. Being awarded LIGHT LOCK from Mystery will
now turn off the LIGHT LOCK targets if locks are not allowed to be
stacked.
- Fixed a bug where display effects would be aborted with just the right
flipper instead of both flippers at the same time.
- Added a timeout for the transition of shooter groove to mainplay if for
some reason the cpu is not getting the signal from the sound section.
- Added 2 display effect calls for CBG Secret Stash: CBG Secret Stash
Start and the notice that all shots are relit.
- Added Feature Adjustment 36 - Allow Volume Effects. Default is YES.
When set to YES, the game will increase the volume during certain events
(typically multiballs). When set to NO, the volume will not be messed
with. If the game volume is set to 0 (OFF), then this adjustment will
be treated as set to NO.

CPU Release 3.00
Date April 26, 2003

Game ROM 1M U210 $B8FF 3.00 spp-cpu.300

Changes from Game ROM v2.07
---------------------------
- *** THIS GAME ROM REQUIRES DISPLAY VERSION 3.00 OR HIGHER. ***
- Properly chalk wins in all tv modes now.
- Altered difficulty of Scratchy's Revenge. In order to light the first
super jackpot, you now need to make 15 jackpots MINUS the number of
Itchy & Scratchy multiball super jackpots earned in that cycle (the
minimum number of jackpots is 5). For subsequent super jackpots in the
same Revenge multiball, 15 jackpots are needed to light.
- The number of ratings points for Krusty's Last Stand that you get for
shooting the right orbit has been doubled to 20, which is what I meant
for it to be all along. With a good spinner, this should cause the mode
to be finishable in 3 shots, with a maximum of 5 shots.
- Altered difficulty of Alien Invasion. Now the time you get for
completing AI is based on the number of TV modes you have WON in that
cycle. The time is 45 seconds, plus 5 seconds for every mode won. If
all 7 modes were won, then AI's timer starts at the maximum of 99
seconds.
- Added player-abort feature for Alien Invasion. If a ball becomes
hopelessly stuck (e.g. 2 balls sneak behind the I&S drop targets), then
the player may hold in the start button for one second. This will kick
out ALL currently locked balls with no effect on the stage or the
ballsaver. The player may then try again to lock all of the balls for
that stage. It is recommended to abort the current stage as soon as a
ball is trapped because no ballsaver will come on when kicking out the
balls.
- Victory Laps now cash-in correctly when Alien Invasion starts.
- Fixed a nasty bug that would carry over the Victory Lap value across
Invasion, possibly inflating Victory Laps for TV modes won on the same
ball after Invasion finished.
- It is now impossible to change the Adult Content adjustment when the
game is dipped for Chuck E. Cheese.
- Added Standard Adjustment 47 - Ticket Dispenser Installed. Default is
NO. When set to YES, the game will attempt to give tickets when they
are set as an award type. This also disables any flipper stack
switches that may be in a game (upper right flippers in the case of
TSPP).
- Added Standard Adjustment 48 - Allow Player Competition. Default is
YES. When set to YES, players may activate competition-mode games by
holding in the left flipper for a second. If a game can be started
(i.e. there are credits on it), a countdown will show up on the display.
Hitting the start button during this countdown puts the game into
competition mode for that game only (but for all players of that game).
See notes below for details on Competition Mode rules.
- Added Standard Adjustment 49 - Show Tech Alert. Default for now is
NEVER. This adjustment controls where/when the Tech Alert message will
pop up: POWERUP shows the message after booting and before games can
be started; COIN DOOR OPEN shows the message when the coin door opens
up; POWERUP AND COIN DOOR for both of the above; NEVER will never show
Tech Alert Alert.
- Improved some choreography for Pretzel Multiball.
- Added Pretzel Multiball Total page.

---------------------------
- *** THIS GAME ROM REQUIRES DISPLAY VERSION 2.00 OR HIGHER. ***
- Fixed a problem with going to the wrong menu for Dr. Pinball.
- Fixed a nasty problem with the HOLD COUCH LOCKS adjustment. If balls
were in the couch at the start of a multiplayer game and this adjustment
was set for 1-PLAYER GAMES, player 1 would get screwed with never being
able to start Couch Multiball.
- Fixed Scratchy's Revenge being able to start during Alien Invasion.
Now it is properly unable to start until after Invasion is over.
- Added "Chaos Mode" for helping clear balls out of the VUK in very
early production games.
- Fixed Alien Invasion not resetting its total.
- Fixed a problem in Alien Invasion where if a ball was locked before
all the balls were autolaunched from the trough, it would not get
the proper number of balls into play.
- Fixed an obscure problem in Alien Invasion where if you started it with
2 balls locked in the couch, locked one of the balls, then drained the
other, it would just sit there until the mode ended.
- Added a bunch of switch compensation, more to come.

physical ROM.
- Fixed memory extra balls and specials staying lit between games.
- Increased ballsaver time for Pretzel Multiball.

causes the following to occur: When the mechanism is normally-working,
very hard shots will basically give 2 awards. When Bart is stuck along
the way, a solid hit to the captive ball should send Bart back far
enough to score one award, keeping the feature alive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CPU Release 2.00
Date February 10, 2003

Game ROM 1M U210 $44FF 2.00 spp-cpu.200

Changes from Game ROM v1.04
---------------------------
- *** THIS GAME ROM REQUIRES DISPLAY VERSION 2.00 OR HIGHER. ***
- Fixed some bogus sound calls during HSTD.
- Fixed Monorail Mode shot award display.
- Instant Info fully implemented.
- Added better explanations to some secret award display effects.
- More speech/choreography.
- Tried to trap a situation where CBG Hurryup goes into Never-Never Land.
- Made Nuclear Value Award screen more informative (no one knew you could
get extra balls from it).
- Extended Springfield Mystery Spot jackpot display effect times.
- All audits should be chalking properly now.
- Implemented Garage Door Difficulty adjustment. This allows the Garage
Door to reopen automatically under certain circumstances as follows:
- Extra Easy: Until Couch Multiball is started.
- Easy: Until any couch lock is made.
- Moderate: Until any couch lock or tv mode started.
- Hard: Until any couch lock, tv mode started, or mystery lit.
- Extra Hard: Never reopens
The default setting for this adjustment from Extra Easy install to Extra
Hard install is as follows: Extra Easy; Extra Easy, Easy, Moderate, Hard.
- Implemented Hold Couch Locks adjustment. This allows the couch to hold
onto balls between games and between players. The settings are:
- Never: Couch always empties at game over, no locks are ever held.
- 1 Player Games: Couch doesn't empty at game over and anyone playing a
1-player game can steal any locked balls.
- Always: Couch doesn't empty at game over, AND players can steal other
players' locks.
This adjustment will be treated as Never if Competition Mode is on.
During tournament games, balls will stay physically locked, but players
must still make 3 locks in order to start Couch Multiball.
The default setting for this adjustment from Extra Easy install to Extra
Hard install is as follows: 1 Player Games, 1 Player Games, 1 Player
Games, Never, Never.
- Implemented Adult Content adjustment. When off, the following phrases
are removed from the game:
- Kick ass, man!
- Holy crap!
- Somebody check the men's room for a Hugh Jass.
- Cheating makes Baby Jesus cry.
- Fixed no-memory specials and extra balls staying lit even though they
would correctly not award anything if they were achieved on a subsequent
ball.
