Summary 01660: canvas, mainsnk: [possible] You can see the character set used to enter the initials in the high score screen.
Description For both games in this driver, same as in 00507 and 00367, during the demonstration sequence - the high scores are displayed along with the chracter set that you use to enter the initials.

While I'm not entirely convinced this is a bug, I posted it so it's recorded.
It seems odd that multiple drivers have this issue, from different companies and so many years apart..

I've found this video of Gladiator 1984.
This is definitely a common behaviour in SNK pcb's of those years.
I'm closing all the related bugs.
