Summary 07221: sprint1: [possible] Sprint 1 should have one white car and three black autonomous cars.
Description My friend who has built a Sprint 1 on FPGA from schematics weighed in and indicated the original Sprint 1 should have one user controlled white car and the others are black and drones. Note the onscreen instructions indicate it as well.

Somebody brought to my attention that Atari Sprint 1 in MAME has two
gray autonomous cars and one black one, very likely a developer made
assumptions and brought that over from Sprint 2 which has two human
controllable cars, black and white and two autonomous gray cars. In
Sprint 1 there is one human controllable car (white) and the three
autonomous cars are supposed to be black, it has no gray cars. If you
want to file a bug for that, it would be cool to get fixed, it's likely
a very simple fix.

Funny thing is this came about because he contacted me to inform me that
there was a bug in *my* FPGA code because mine had 3 black cars. I'm
positive mine is correct though, the schematic clearly shows all three
autonomous cars wired only to the black video output, the description
says black cars, and right on the attract mode in the game it says
"black cars drive automatically".
Steps To Reproduce Launch game.
Observe attract mode or start a new game.

White car in control of player.
Other three cars are black.

It sounds reasonable. I'd like non-FPGA footage of an original Sprint 1 machine in action before taking the possible flag off of this.
Acknowledged for now.

You probably saw this Tafoid, it's a Sprint One video.

Note the drones are black. Could be a different set though as there are two drone cars opponents vs. three?
