MAME Info:

0.82 [David Haywood]


- Agress runs on an original unmodified Technos 'Block Out' PCB. All of the Technos identifications are hidden under 'Palco' or 'Agress' stickers.


- 0.145: Agress has half the work RAM of Block Out and tests that it mirrors [R. Belmont]. This fixed the black screen in Agress.

- 0.135u2: Fabio Priuli added driver data and save state support to the Block Out driver.

- 0.128u7: David VanVoorhis fixed Agress title screen.

- 0.126u4: Andrew Gardner merged memory maps in the Block Out driver.

- 0.124: RansAckeR added DIP locations and fixed unknown dipswitches in the Block Out driver. Added 7x 'Unused' dipswitch.

- 0.104u6: Roberto Fresca added dipswitches for Agress. Added dipswitches 'Coinage', 'Opening Cut', 'Demo Sounds', 'Difficulty' and 'Players'.

- 0.104u3: Pierpaolo Prazzoli added clone Agress (English bootleg). This is probably an original English version with copyright year hacked.

- 4th January 2005: f205v dumped Agress (English bootleg).
