[Note: The Quartet cabinet look like a Gauntlet cabinet to me.]

Quartet consists of a 2 board set, the Main Board (837-5795) and
the ROM Board (837-5794 or 834-5794).  The main board may have
the number "171-5335" or "171-5336" on it.

Ther service buttons are used to give a credit but not register on
the coin meter.  They can be used to check for basic game
functionality.


Control Panel
=============

The control panel is laid out as follows:

   ---------------------------------------------
   |  B1 J1                             J4  B2 |
   |   B2                                  B1  }
   \                                           /
    \                                         /
     \         J2              J3            /
      \         B1 B2           B1 B2       /
       -------------------------------------

J1 = Joystick, Player 1 (Lee)
J2 = Joystick, Player 2 (Joe)
J3 = Joystick, Player 3 (Mary)
J4 = Joystick, Player 4 (Edgar?)

B1 = Jump/Start
B2 = Shoot


Test Mode
=========

To put the game into test mode, power off the game, turn SW#8 of
DIP SW2 on, and power the game back on.

In the test mode, if an error is found the test will stop after
identifying the error.

IC Test
-------
The first test is the IC Test.  If an IC is found to be defective,
the screen will display "BAD IC" followed by the defective IC number.

The color bar should display these colors:
  C1 = White
  C2 = Red
  C3 = Green
  C4 = Blue
  C5 = Yellow
  C6 = Light Blue
  C7 = Purple
  C8 = Grey
  C9 = Black

[1] The on-screen display of "ON" in the corresponding position for each
    of the 8 switches when pushed, signifies normal operation.
[2] Displays the results of testing in the IC test mode.
[3] By pushing any of the control switches, the sound test (see below)
    starts.
[4] The present setting of the DIP switches.
