MAME Info:

0.112u3 [smf]

CD-ROM(s) required


- 0.132u3: smf added new CDROM images to 'DrumMania 2nd Mix' and clone 'DrumMania 2nd Mix Session Power Up Kit'.

- 0.124u1: Added clone 'DrumMania 2nd Mix Session Power Up Kit (GE912 VER. JAB)'. Changed parent description to 'DrumMania 2nd Mix (GE912 VER. JAB)'.

- 27th February 2007: smf - An upgrade/install CD for DrumMania has surfaced. Unfortunately it wants the audio from the original CD. By changing the dipswitch so it will boot from flash and the game will boot, but there is no audio. I guess we could hook up a random audio CD, but it's not really the same. On the other hand, the original Dance Dance Revolution CD we have only has audio tracks. If an installation CD exists, it needs to be tracked down. Otherwise the only hope will be to find an original japanese version Dance Dance Revolution cab (which may have only seen a test release).

- 0.112u3: smf added DrumMania 2nd Mix (GE912 VER. JAA) (Konami 1999).
