chanbara: MAME ROM Information.


Chan Bara (c) 1985 Data East.


Very rare game.


Game's ROM.

MAME Info:

0.127u5 [Tomasz Slanina, David Haywood]


- 0.145u5: Stephane Humbert fixed dipswitches and inputs in Chanbara (after verification of the M6809 code). Added 2nd Player and dipswitches 'Coin A/B', 'Difficulty', 'Lives', 'Bonus Life' and 'Cabinet'.

- 0.135u2: Fabio Priuli added save state support to Chanbara.

- 0.127u5: Tomasz Slanina and David Haywood added Chanbara (Data East 1985).

- 25th September 2008: David Haywood - I helped Tomasz Slanina with the Chanbara driver, fixing up the sprites. It's a rather obscure dual joystick game from Data East, not really their best game but definitely one of their rarer ones.

- 24th July 2008: Tomasz Slanina - Added a recently dumped (by Guru) rare DECO game. Not playable (yet) - emulation of sprite hardware is missing some important parts.

- 20th July 2008: Guru - Chanbara (Data East) arrived. This is a extremely rare and expensive game. Thanks to a couple of people that donated some postage bucks, another package arrived from Japan a few days ago.
