MAME Info:

0.140u3 [Hau, Chack'n]

Samples required


- 0.141: Derrick Renaud and Andy Welburn added preliminary (disabled by default) discrete sound emulation to Dai San Wakusei Meteor. Changed description to 'Dai San Wakusei Meteor (Japan)'.

- 0.140u3: Hau and Chack'n added 'Dai San Wakusei Meteor' (Sun Electronics 1979). Guru corrected game clock as verified on PCB.

- 14th December 2010: Guru - Dai 3 Wakusei (Sun Electronics, 1979) arrived recently. This is an extremely rare and expensive Space Invaders type game but with different gameplay. Special thanks to Masashi who paid a whopping $1000 for it especially so it could be dumped for MAME. Now that's dedication! Dox is working on the emulation and has it running but with no colors right now.

- 18th February 2009: Hau wrote a driver for Dai San Wakusei Meteor.

- 4th January 2009: Chack'n dumped Dai San Wakusei Meteor.
