Did You Know ?

There were supposed to be stickers on the

BAD GUYS drop targets ?

Somehow or someway, they didn't end up on the games .

Here's a sample pic

Check it out !!!!!

Someone ... who has remained anonymous has sent me some high resolution scans of all 4 targets !!!
Here they are, in zip files. I had to reformat them so they can be seen and printed easily. They came out actual  size with  brilliant color. Many thanks to the person who provided the scans for us to enjoy. All you have to do is
print them on sticker paper and cover them with some Mylar and they are ready to go.






Here's the history of the stickers. They were originally designed to be put onto the drop targets to be "badguys" (hence, all the discussion around "shoot the bad guy").  We put them on the games, and found that many people couldn't see the targets very well, and we got a LOT of complaints about the target visibility. The next step was that we put in translucent targets, with light-piping from underneath.  They looked way cool.  They would flash a bit when the target light was flashing.  Unfortunately, we couldn't find a plastic compound that would withstand the life testing.  The translucent plastics did not hold up well compared to the normal glass-filled nylon used. In the end, we chose a bright yellow target, assuming that they would give maximum visibility.  The target stickers were not included in the final art package, and hence, were not put on the game  intentionally. BTW: I have 2 cactus canyon's, plaque number 002, and 003.-

Found this info on the Newsgroups . There has been some question as to the Bionic Bart mentioned on the Score Card. This seems to explain it better than anything I've seen.

Bionic Bart was removed from the
rules long before the game went to market. But when Williams
printed the score card, they printed the WRONG CARD! That is,
they printed an older version that mentioned Bionic Bart, when
he had been removed from the rules way before! So everyone
thought, "gee there's no Bionic Bart, the software is really
unfinished". When in reality, B/Bart was removed from the rules
for a reason, and there was no intention of ever adding him
back in! If  Williams had printed the *correct* score card
for the game (which of course did not mention Bionic Bart),
this would have never been an issue!!
