MAME Info:

0.36b16 [Takahiro Nogi]

< Japan >


- 0.142u2: Angelo Salese hooked up text protection simulation to Kozure Ookami, allowing it to display scoring during gameplay and copyright screens. Implemented proper FG scroll latching, fixing an offsetted layer at the gameplay intro screen. Changed description to 'Kozure Ookami (Japan)' and visible area to 320x240. Renamed (kodure) to (kozure). Added 'Unused' dipswitch.

- 23rd April 2011: Angelo Salese - Discovered and implemented sprite color cycling effects in ArmedF driver. That's a RAM-based clut table that look-ups via a byte in the sprite defs. As you can see from the YT vids, it's used for doing neat effects such as explosions / bonus colors etc. in Terra Force. It's even more useful in Kodure Ookami, since it's used to differentiate the explosive red ninjas from the normal ones and in Armed Formation, that is used to make the sprites to be a lot less static.

- 21st April 2011: Angelo Salese - Currently working at the Nichibutsu 1414M4 emulation, that is a fancy MCU / blitter device used for copying text strings in various 1987/1988 games. Here's Terra Force and Kodure Ookami with this hooked up.

- 0.62: Changed 'Unknown' to 'Unused' dipswitches.

- 0.37b8: Changed visible area to 288x224.

- 0.36b16: Takahiro Nogi added Kodure Ookami (Japan) (Nichibutsu 1987).

- 21st January 2000: Takahiro Nogi sent in a Kodure Ookami driver.
