MAME Info:

0.102u5 [Reznor007]

0.91u1 [Aaron Giles]

HardDisk required


- If you go into test mode and do a filesystem check the game crashes. Reznor007 (ID 00888)


- 0.119u3: Aaron Giles added "top 20" dedicated rasterizers for all the Seattle games and Gauntlet Legends/Dark Legacy. These improve rasterization performance by another 10-20%. Aaron Giles fixed several more bugs in the 64-bit MIPS recompiler. It is now capable of running the Seattle games and the 3D Gauntlets.

- 0.102u5: Reznor007 added Gauntlet Dark Legacy (version DL 2.52). Aaron Giles added missing color combine mode used by Gauntlet Dark Legacy. Changed description of 'Gauntlet Dark Legacy' to clone 'Gauntlet Dark Legacy (version DL 2.4)' and replaced harddisk file. Renamed (gauntdl) to (gauntd24).

- 0.91u1: Aaron Giles added Gauntlet Dark Legacy (Midway 1999).

- 19th April 2004: Aaron Giles - I've spent a little time trying to get my preliminary Vegas driver back up and running. At the moment, I have Gauntlet Legends and Gauntlet: Dark Legacy up and running with sound, but they both die a terrible death when actual gameplay is encountered (either in attract mode or in the actual game). War: The Final Assault is in the same category. One thing I've discovered recently is that the CPU emulation is still the big bottleneck, even moreso than the Voodoo emulation. When the heavy-duty floating point calculations kick in, the current dynamic recompiler is pretty inefficient. I'm starting to think about bumping the compiler to a two-pass system in order to provide an optimization pass that could help out the code quality immensely.

- 0.78: Aaron Giles fixed IDE controller final sector handling for Gauntlet: Dark Legacy and added new PIC mapping.

- 12th December 2003: Aaron Giles - Gauntlet: Dark Legacy and War: Final Assault work with the new ADSP-2104-based DCS sound core, the others fall over at the moment unless I help them along.
