[1] Coding by Argonaut. Graphics by Focus C.E. Limited. Music & sound FX by Dave Lowe (Uncle Art).

[2] Marketed and distributed by Mediagenic in the UK, Leader in Italy and Ubi Soft in France.

[3] Despite what is written on the titlescreen and the original game contents (box, disk etc.), the game is indeed a conversion of the AFTER BURNER II coin-op rather than the original. In fact, if the intro is left to run after the titlescreen AFTER BURNER II is actually displayed quite clearly (see HERE).

[4] Almost every version of the Activision release of AFTER BURNER has a corrupted track 15 on disk 1, which causes the intro music to glitch for about 1 second in several places. The SPS version has the correct data, however, and the WHDLoad install also fixes the problem.
