MAME Info:

0.36b7 [Nao]

0.36b6 [Nicola Salmoria]


- 0.138u3: Dr. Decapitator added proper i8751H MCU dump to clone Legend of Hero Tonma (Japan) and added I8751 (8MHZ) CPU3.

- 23rd June 2010: Guru - The 8751 MCU (labelled T0M_C-PR) for Legend Of Hero Tonma just received and has now been successfully processed (decap, de-protect & read).

- 7th April 2009: Guru - Legend of Hero Tonma (for 8751 MCU and PAL) arrived from Japan.

- 0.128u2: Couriersud improved MCU emulation in clone lohtb2. The whole startup cycle now works. No more timeouts and erratic behavior. lohtb2 will however not display the "Warning" screen due to a priority issue. With color/attribute of 0x80 in videoram at 0xd0000 and 0xd8000, videoram at 0xd80000 will be displayed. Some tilemap guru has to look into this.

- 0.128u1: Couriersud added full emulation of protection device to clone (bootleg, set 2). Samples are now piped through the MCU.

- 0.127u8: Couriersud fixed clone (bootleg, set 2) stops at PCB test.

- 0.127u7: MCU protection now working for clone (bootleg, set 2) [Couriersud]: Hooked up I8751 MCU (16Mhz). Synchronized protection RAM writes with timer callbacks. Removed speed hack from NEC CPU emulation, which breaks the protection code.

- 0.122u8: Changed description of clone '(bootleg)' to '(bootleg, set 1)'.

- 0.119u3: David Haywood added clones Legend of Hero Tonma (Japan), (bootleg) and (bootleg, set 2).

- 6th March 2005: Manuel Assoni dumped Legend Of Hero Tonma (bootleg).

- 1st April 2000: Guru - Dumped Legend of Hero Tonma (Bootleg Irem).

- 0.36RC2: Added 'Difficulty' dipswitch.

- 0.36b9: Added dipswitches 'Lives', 'Demo Sounds', 'Coinage', 'Flip Screen', 'Cabinet', 'Coin Mode' and 'Invulnerability'.

- 0.36b7: Nao added Legend of Hero Tonma (Irem 1989).

- 0.36b6: Nicola Salmoria added Legend of Hero Tonma (Testdriver).
