Summary 05221: scramble and clones: Incorrect Stars
Description i have noticed that the background stars in mame scramble are very incorrect when compared to the actual pcb

i have verified this by watching a number of pcb/cab recordings on youtube (two separate stern cab recordings, plus a recording of the konami version pcb)

below: the first and second pics show the two different stern cabs. i have circled in red a couple of star clusters to highlight that they are identical

the third pic below is the konami arcade pcb version, and although that particular youtube video is poor, you can still see the two stars together just below where it says '5th' at the top of the screen (i have circled them to highlight)

the fourth picture below is the mame version (.149). note the single star in the bottom right corner of the screen near the little flag (i have highlighted it with a red box). you never see any stars in this area in all of the youtube scramble cab/pcb recordings (both stern and konami versions)

This seems to be a problem on all machines directly based off the L-1200 hardware series, which have the same star hardware. This means Super Cobra, Rescue, etc.

A reference screenshot/video showing stars or lack thereof in Explorer would also be useful, since its PCB (Sidam 10800) clearly uses different (and fewer) components from the original hardware.
