MAME Info:

0.143u8 [ShouTime]

0.37b13 [Bryan McPhail, David Graves]

< Japan >


- 0.146: hap fixed Gunbuster coin lockout and missing sound/music, default EEPROM had volume 0. Small cleanups and disabled coin lockout for clone (Japan). Added new EEPROM.

- 0.143u8: ShouTime added Gunbuster (World) and clone (US). Renamed (gunbustr) to (gunbustrj).

- 0.137u4: Howard Casto hooked up all outputs for Gunbuster.

- 0.136: Added eeprom-gunbustr.bin EEPROM.

- 0.131u1: MooglyGuy merged memory maps in Gunbuster.

- 0.106u8: Fixed sound1 rom address to $200000.

- 0.61: Light gun support [Bryan McPhail]. Changed ES5505 clock speed to 15238050 Hz.

- 0.53: Palette compression has been removed. palette_recalc(), palette_transparent_pen and palette_used_colors[] are not available anymore. Drivers that relied on PALETTE_COLOR_TRANSPARENT for transparency effects must be rewritten to implement them differently. As a result of this, all games using the Taito TC0480SCP video chip are broken in this release.

- 0.37b15: Changed input to 2 players.

- 0.37b14: Replaced 68020 CPU with 68EC020.

- 0.37b13: Bryan McPhail and David Graves added Gunbuster (Japan) (Taito 1992). TODO: FLIPX support in taitoic.c is not quite correct (the Taito logo is wrong), and the floor in the Doom levels has horizontal scrolling where it shouldn't.

- 22nd February 2001: Bryan McPhail and David Graves wrote a driver for Taito Super Z system, with support for Super Chase, Gunbuster and Under Fire.
