Arcade Astrocade:
- Updated framework (adaptive scanlines, shadow mask, 64-phase filters).
- Add speaker configuration setting for Gorf versions using speech
  • Stereo = Speech mixed in with output for both sound chips (L & R)
  • Cabinet = One sound chip through top speaker (L)
    Other sound chip or Speech through lower speaker (switched under program control) (R)
The cabinet mode is how the original game works since it has one speaker above the screen and one below the screen.
