|Summary||03916: arabian: Missing bird at top of the screen.|
There is a bird which flies at the top of the screen, stopping in the the crow's nest on the ship. It drops occasionally more enemies to attack you. Strangely, this is not being done in the MAME version, though the test mode for the game shows graphics for this missing component to the game.
|Steps To Reproduce|
This may be one of couple things, conceivably:
1) Video showcasing a different romset
2) Simply missing the graphics implementation which may/may not be related to the simulation going on in the game.
I tested back to 0.19 when it was first added to MAME .. there is no bird showing at any time. Also, I made a snap of the test mode which clearly shows the graphics for this bird.

|Yeah, I'd bet money on this being related to the MCU simulation. Another target for the decapping project...|

Added another video, again clearly showing the bird. Thanks again to Rogerio for locating.

|With the MCU now emulated, the big blue bird is both visible in-game and on the high-score screen.|

|Not very familiar with this game, but it appears this bug has returned|

Seems MCU core was adjusted.
I traced it, very likely, to work done on the mb88xx core - January 14, 2022
I've reopened the bug.

Looking into this - reverting https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/a6addb11da8aa9f44ebf5449e8fe0d8c02f3d824 does fix this Arabian bug, but it glitches the namco54 sound in bosco.
I'll see if I can fix this another way, since I think https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/a6addb11da8aa9f44ebf5449e8fe0d8c02f3d824 is correct.
