Exidy Targ Free Play+

Targ Free Play+ is an ROM swap which adds the following features to your Exidy Targ arcade game:

New Five Position High Score Table

During the game's attract mode, the game displays the TARG HALL OF FAME with the top five scores- including player initials and level reached! At the end of the game each player can enter their initials into the hall of fame using the joystick. Pressing FIRE confirms the initials.

Free Play Mode

When in the free play mode, the "CREDITS 00" displayed on the screen is replaced with "FREEPLAY". While the game is in attract mode, pressing the 1 player button immediately starts a 1 player game and pressing the 2 player button immediately starts a two player game.

Operator Menu

A new menu is displayed when the machine is first powered up. It contains the following items:

Start Game - Press FIRE to exit the menu and enter attract mode of the game. If the cursor is left here for about 30 seconds, the game will automatically leave the menu and enter attract mode.

Free Play - Press FIRE to toggle free play mode on and off.

Reset High Scores - Clears the high score table. To prevent accidental erasure of high scores, FIRE, PLAYER 1 START, PLAYER 2 START and JOYSTICK UP must be pressed together to reset the high score table.

Test Sounds - Press FIRE to toggle between the following sounds: Fire, explosion, Spectar fast, Spectar slow.

Attract Mode Sounds - Turn on to hear the Spectar sounds and player ship explosion sound during attract mode.


Targ Cocktail ROMs Supported

The Targ Free Play+ code has been added to the Targ cocktail ROM set as well- specify which set you need when you order. The operator menu displays UR or CT for each version.


The Targ Free Play+ code resides in slack space on the Targ ROMs. Targ used 2k 2716 ROMs that required either +5v only (non-Texas Instruments ROMs), or +5v, -5v, +12v (Texas Instruments 2716 ROMs).

If your PCB has non-Texas Instruments ROMs:

Installation will require swapping three of the game's five ROMs with new ROMs.

If your PCB has Texas Instruments Roms:

Installation will require replacing all five of the game's ROMs and replacing the DIP shunt at location B11 so that only +5v is distributed to the ROMs.
