Specific Contributions

The known contributions for this version are, in the order specified in the whatsnew:

  • David Haywood replaced the kodb set with complete dump from known bootleg board (different gfx rom layout). Added wofhfh bootleg from mame32plus. Added SF2 Magic Turbo Delta bootleg as non-working.
  • nuapete fixed a possible 64-bit crash/hang with survival.
  • Naibo improved Driver's Eyes:
    • the communication work between CPU and 3D DSP should be limited to the master M68000, if the address mapping is done in the shared memory, master CPU would be disturbed by the slave one.
    • DIP Switches: DIP3 ON for Screen on the left, DIP4 ON for Screen on the right, should not toggle on both
    • The left, center and right screens have separate programs and boards, each would work independantly. About projection angles of left and right screen, the angle is correct on 'DRIVER'S EYES' title screen, however in the tracks of demo mode it doesn't seem correct.
    • The game also features a pretty nice 2D sprite layer, which still doesn't show up yet. It is known that the CPU does constantly feed the 2D video memory some meaningful and logical data.
  • Roberto Fresca and Tomasz Slanina added a new driver for Lucky 74 (Wing Co.Ltd, 1988)
    • Set the proper screen size.
    • Decoded graphics.
    • Decoded the dual-state color circuitry.

    • Created a handler to feed the z80 port0 requests.

    • Added an alternate set, but the program ROM looks like incomplete, protected or just a bad dump.
