MAME Info:

0.113u3 [smf]

CD-ROM required (2x)


- 0.141u4: Added MAS3507D sound.

- 0.122u2: Added clone Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix (GE949 VER. JAB). Changed parent description to 'Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix (GE949 VER. JAC)'. Renamed (gtfrk3ma) to (gtfrk3mb). Added missing 2nd CD-ROM.

- 0.118u6: smf added clone 'Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix - security cassette versionup (949JAZ02)'. Also fixed security cassette contents to get Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix (GE949 VER. JAB) in game.

- 8th September 2007: smf - SECURITY CASSETTE VERSIONUP: Rather odd this one, I was hoping it was going to unlock something in Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix but it just appears to convert your GE949JAA security cassette to GE949JAB. The sente diagnostic cart is useful in comparison.

- 0.113u3: smf added Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix (GE949 VER. JAB) (Konami 2000).

- 19th March 2007: smf - 573 part 8: Guitar Freaks 3rd Mix (Konami 2000).
