New Neo-Geo Game Being Developed "KRAUT BUSTER"
DU: Ultimate Arctic Thunder (And More)
gamerfan got us an upgrade disc that upgrades Arctic Thunder to Ultimate Arctic Thunder and is a really late upgrade (May 3, 2004). I am not sure which revision it will upgrade it to (disc says it's version 1.950 but that could be the disc version and not the game version). We'll see. I made a pdf with scans. As far as the Betson/Play Mechanix/Midway relationship or lack thereof is concerned, I currently have no idea.
Also BillD dumped Robocop 2 (USA V0.10) and PokeMAME dumped an alt set of Perfect Billiard and a rom board by GEI type UVM-8B. I am not sure which game it is.

ArBee: A Call For Help
There's one serious issue. MESS has a timing problem in our from-schematics reproduction of the Wozniak floppy controller. It conveniently manifests in a common regular .DSK (Sherwood Forest) but it's also causing trouble for booting .EDDs which are more timing-sensitive than normal DOS 3.3 and ProDOS stuff. For instance, the protected original .EDD of Mark Turmell's "Sneakers" loads all the way in but fails to read correct data for part of the boot because of this.
