Summary 08144: roadblst: In Service Mode, Soft-Locks at Control Test
Description I'm sure there should be more pages, atarisy1 games should all have complete Service Mode pages until at least, to the Sound test page, however, for Road Blasters, in the Control Test page, i have noticed that no matter if i use the Steering and Foot Pedal, they won't do anything at all, it won't even advance to the next page by pressing the Special Weapon button.
At least pressing the Lasers button still shows at the Top Right when you are in Horizontal or Vertical selection mode but still, you are Soft-Locked.

Just in case, i tried with the 3 BIOS:

- TTL Motherboard (Rev 2)
- TTL Motherboard (Rev 1)
- LSI Motherboard

Still with the 3 BIOS, the Soft-Lock it's still present.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Make sure the Service Mode it's ON when Booting the game, if you enabled Service Mode during in-game, it won't go past the Histogram for Level 5 and loops back to Switch test.
If you enabled Service Mode during in-game, reset the game then let it load and it will enable the Complete Service Mode.

2. Keep pressing the Special Weapon button until it reaches the Control Test page. (Press Special Weapon button 11 times.)

3. Steering and Foot Pedal doesn't do anything, signal that not even pressing the Special Weapon button won't advance to the next page.

Hard to say if related to other timing/communication issues which plague the service modes for all atarisys1.cpp games:
