MAME Info:

0.87u1 [Bryan McPhail]


- 0.129u5: Guru added clone Apache 3 (Kana Corporation license). Apache 3 improvements [Phil Bennett, Guru]: Experimental road layer emulation (currently disabled). Fixed text layer alignment. Corrected CPU clock frequencies. Fixed YM-2151 volume. Added road stripe PROM. Changed V30 CPU1 clock speed to 8MHz, 68000 CPU2 to 12.5MHz, Z80 CPU3 to 6.25 Hz and VSync to 55.803571 Hz.

- 0.122u4: Changed OKI629 clock speed to 2MHz.

- 9th March 2007: Guru - Unknown Tatsumi game arrived today (this is Apache 3). Thanks to Gp-Lee.

- 0.107u4: Brian Troha fixed the dips for Apache 3. Added dipswitches 'Lives', 'Difficulty', 'Demo Sounds' and 'Coinage'.

- 0.87u1: Bryan McPhail added Apache 3 (Tatsumi 1988). Playable to a degree, but not really working properly. The Tatsumi driver games are all different boards, but share a similar sprite chip (TZB215 on Apache 3, TZB315 on others). Other graphics (road, sky, bg/fg layers) all differ between games. TODO: Sprite rotation, implement road layer, dipswitches and various other things.
