Defender Red Label

Unread post by Aspie »

I noticed yesterday that Defender Red label had appeared on my arcade list.

Anyone know what the difference is between Defender and the Red Label version? Is one easier than the other?

"The green ROM set was released to fix the score display bug, and then Williams launched the cocktail cabinet which required the ability for the screen to be inverted for the second player, so the red ROM set is the one that allows this to be possible."

The red label version is the parent set in MAME, so I'm not sure why it's not the default in MiSTer (I'm guessing the cocktail screen flipping wasn't supported in the core initially).

It appears to be just the red label version again. I suspect it's just an older version of the MRA file that hasn't been removed from our systems.

UPDATE: I rebuilt my "_Arcade" folder and "Defender.mra" is no longer present, but "Defender (Red Label).mra" is.
