MAME Info:

0.96u3 [Angelo Salese]


- 0.143u3: Brian Troha added Cyber Tank dipswitches as per "Super" on MW forum & linked Manual. Added dipswitches 'Allow Continue', 'Demo Sounds', 'Difficulty', 'Coin B Value', 'Service Mode', '2 Credits to Start' and 'Coin A/B'.

- 0.141: David Haywood implemented preliminary road emulation in Cyber Tank. General stability issues with 64-bit builds fixed for Cyber Tank driver [David Haywood]. Fixed region road_data order. Added dual screen (2x 256x224).

- 0.136u2: Antonio Gonzalez Jr. and Dumping Union redumped sound roms in Cyber Tank. Angelo Salese fixed sprite height, implemented flip x and negative y offsets and preliminary zooming.

- 17th January 2010: Angelo Salese - Worked on improving Cyber Tank graphics, thanks to the re-dump that was done recently. Current main blocker is the non-tile based sprite emulation, it's pretty complex with its odd decoding and zooming. Zooming looks like to be a single 8-bit port, i.e. it doesn't seem to have indiviudual zoomx/zoomy factors. Now I need to understand how the road emulation works, the color "banking" / scrolling for the tilemaps, why some sprites gets stuck on screen / why some sprites are offset and inputs.

- 0.136u1: Antonio Gonzalez Jr. redumped Cyber Tank program and sprite roms. Cyber Tank improvements [Angelo Salese]: Fixed bitplane order. Decoded sprite gfx format. Hooked up the two bg tilemaps. Wrote bare-bones video emulation for the Cyber Tank sprite chip / blitter. Added video boundary checks for the blitter. Changed visible area to 512x256.

- 12th January 2010: Smitdogg - Antonio Gonzalez, Jr., an ex-Romstar employee, has started dumping his insanely rare Cyber Tank PCB set! The current dump as many of you know has some bad dumps. It turns out this set he is dumping is the same revision as the one in MAME so the dump is being corrected and should turn out to finally get properly emulated now (or at least it's possible now). This game was never released outside of Japan as far as I know and all the boards left there now are being hoarded by collectors. At one point there was one US prototype version, but it is most likely lost forever now. He says they did a location test but it failed because of the crazy difficulty level.

- 0.113u3: Updates to the Cybertank driver [PS]: Inter CPU communications, inputs (almost complete), sound, program ROMs marked as bad dumps and unmapped reads. Added 'Test' dipswitch.

- 0.96u3: Angelo Salese added Cyber Tank (v1.04) (Coreland 1990).

- 16th November 2003: Angelo Salese - Notice that I'm using fake gfx roms for Cyber Tank (Coreland 1988) because the ones used by this game are either encrypted or uses an abnormal gfx decode method on which I didn't figured it out yet. I don't think it will be finished soon either as this hardware looks hard as hell, it uses 2 M68000 as main cpus, 1x Z80 as sound, 2x Y8950 and a *shitload* of roms, fifty to be exact! Current implemention has only one M68k and the Z80 memory map hooked up, hence the big amount of test fails in the screen-shot. The current main problem is that I can't get a proper master-slave CPU communication (hence the various bad msg on the snapshot).
