I was playing around with Crab Grab this morning and I think I came up with a MAME cheat that improves the control. It limits your movement to one space every time you hit a direction. You can't hold it down to advance multiple spaces. This helps eliminate accidentally moving two spaces. It also feels a bit more responsive. I'm still playing around with it and activating it isn't perfect but I like it so far. To activate it, start Game A and play for a bit. Once a crab advances upwards the code will kick in. It won't activate in Game B, but once it starts working in Game A, it will also function in B. Here is what I have so far:

<mamecheat version="1">

<cheat desc="Alternate Movement">
<script state="run">
<action>maincpu.mb@c4=00</action>
<action>maincpu.mb@c7=00</action>
</script>
</cheat>

</mamecheat>

Sean Riddle dumped US Games Space Cruiser, it's this one:

Don't be surprised it doesn't turn up in MAME 0.249 next week, the master branch is in the MAME 0.250 cycle already.

Here's an in-depth video where he talks about documenting the hardware.

Mega Man 3 by Tiger Electronics (and licensed from Capcom) has now been preserved in MAME smile

The game is based on the SM510. Sean has de-globbed and dumped the ROM and I've been helping out with digitizing the display and preparing the MAME driver. This is what the game looks like:

Yes, Sean has scanned the inlay. I can help with providing it to someone interested in creating artwork for the game.
