Popeye High Score Save Kit -- Enhanced Free Play

The original Popeye game has a freeplay DIP setting, however, in that mode, the software simply forced the game to always have 90 credits.

This had the undesired affect of losing the attract mode screens. When the game was not being played as it always showed the ready screen and never showed the other attract mode screens. Not to mention the screen burn-in.

With the Enhanced Free Play provided by this kit, you get all the attract mode screen and features. Additionally the word "FREEPLAY" is displayed on the high score screen as a reminder the game is in free play mode.

To turn on free play, set the coinage DIPs as indicated in the manual. See Popeye Test Mode and DIP settings for specific details.
