The "Regression Version" is not MAME 0.134u1. The title logo disappears in MAME 0.122u4.
And in MAME 0.122u3 the title logo looks different from MetalGod's 0.134 shot (see 0.122u3 screenshot).
@ MetalGod: Can you check this again!

I can confirm that in mame 0.125 the logo appears and looks the same as in 0.134 (white letters).
Sorry but I cannot check older mame versions for cosmos because I don't have an older mame rom set, and current cosmos rom fails to run in mame 0.124 and below.
Checking the mame 0.123 whatsnew file, I see there are plenty of changes in the 0.122 update mame versions:
Added all known variants of the tms5110 as proper chips. Updated
dkong, cvs and scramble to use new chips. [couriersud]
Added VIDEO_ALWAYS_UPDATED for reliable collision detection in the
CVS driver. [Zsolt Vasvari]
Reogranized and started to clean up the CVS driver. Added emulation
of the speech CPU. Removed CVS BIOS entry. Removed unnecessary
patching. [Zsolt Vasvari]
Rewrote the CVS system video code. [Zsolt Vasvari]
cvs games: according to PCBInfos speech chip is TMS5100.
Changed driver to use TMS5100 and "game system operational" now
sounds more natural

In ticket 1129 we have a flyer with a snapshot of the pcb game title screen: https://mametesters.org/view.php?id=1129
None of the title logos seen in mame look the same
I've uploaded that screenshot from the flyer.

I've check my MAME versions now with Windows10 64bit and i can confirm that the title logo looks the same as in 0.134.
It changed from green to grey in MAME 0.122u4 (see animated GIF MAME 0.122u3-0.122u4.gif).

I've found out that the game title changes after playing a game, using sprites of the last enemy shown (not all of the enemies are used for this, only three). I've added the 3 possible variations.
These variations are exactly the same for mame 0.202 and mame 0.125...
Too bad none of them look like the flyer title.

Thanks for the informations. I added a picture from a Cosmos eBay auction (s-l1600.jpg)
The colors are the same as in the MAME version. And as you said, the title logo changes constantly.
