Background

In order to reset the high score on these wonderful games you have to clear the EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). This procedure is not documented in the official NAMCO manuals, but with a little reasoning, I managed to discover the procedure. For some strange reason NAMCO changed the procedure between Vol.1 and Vol.2, credits go to kold666 for pointing out that the method for Vol.2 was different!

Note:
An alternate procedure is to power up the game while keeping the applicable pair of buttons pushed, in this case the TEST button is NOT used.
