Summary 00178: alleymas: No screen for birth date and initials entry.
Description The screen which allows entry of your birth date and initials to keep your records is not present in the later builds (after 0.104). It, instead, goes directly to the select type of bowler/hand screen.

Follow-up by RansAckeR (0.122u5): This was introduced by fixing cerberus0104u7yel [Aaron Giles] in 0.104u9.

Changing:

    WRITE8_HANDLER( alleymas_joystick_kludge )
    {
    /* catch the case where they clear this memory location at PC 27 and change */
    /* the value written to be a 1 */
    if (activecpu_get_previouspc() == 0x1827)
    *alleymas_kludge_mem = 1;
    else
    *alleymas_kludge_mem = data;

    ...
    }
into this causes the bug and also disables the joystick input:

    WRITE8_HANDLER( alleymas_joystick_kludge )
    {
    /* catch the case where they clear this memory location at PC 27 and change */
    /* the value written to be a 1 */
    if (safe_activecpu_get_pc() == 0x1827)
    *alleymas_kludge_mem = 1;
    else
    *alleymas_kludge_mem = data;

    ...
    }

I simply reverted the change and the game seems to have no problems.
Now, I can't find anywhere what cerberus0104u7yel was about, so I don't know if this brings the bug back. Are fixed-bug reports saved anywhere?
