1) To create stereoscopic 3D effect, the 3D system in the original arcade cabinet are rapidly spinning discs that are housed inside the periscope and create a "shutter" style of 3D. Jointly developed by Sega and Matsushita, this stereoscopic 3D system was considered revolutionary at the time, as it was a major improvement over the red-blue anaglyph 3D glasses used for movies at the time, and was a precursor to the LCD shutter glasses used for most 3D movies and games today. However, the motors used to spin these half-clear, half-black discs are said to be somewhat cheap, which often led to malfunctioning units.

2) First attempt for stereoscopic 3D game is Space Tactics (1981).

3) Reportedly emulation working in stereoscopic 3D with MAME emulator and Sega Master System's 3D LCD shutter glasses.

4) Emulated in: MAME (not fully emulated).
