IGS PGM hardware

Main CPU : 68000, Z80, ARM7

Sound Chips : ICS2115

Players : 4

Control : 8-way Joystick

Buttons : 4


Released in April 2001.

In China, the game is known as "Xing Yi Quan" (pronounce "Shin Yi Ken").


* Challenge Fateful Enemy/Level Skip : At the character selection screen, hold start and press A to choose your character.

* Crazy Mode : Press and hold UP on both control sticks while holding down the P1, P2 and A,B,C and D buttons on both sides before the start of the first round.

NOTE : Crazy Mode can only be used in a 2-Player vs game.

* Expert Mode : At the title screen press Start while holding down the A,B,C, and D buttons

* Easy Way To Unlock Saojin : Play the game for a little while (a couple of rounds will do), then access the CALENDAR SETTING option from the MAIN MENU. At this time change the date so that it is a month or two ahead of what it was originally, then exit the MAIN MENU. Now when you reach the PLAYER SELECT screen you should see a box over Master Huang's head with a number in it (99). After entering 99 credits, the box should disappear and Saojin's portrait should be there. She is now selectable.

NOTE : If this code doesn't work for you at first, clear the old MM data then follow the above steps.

MAME Info:

- 0.111u6: MooglyGuy fixed Martial Masters - Game now playable.

- 0.105u4: Added ARM7 (20 MHz) CPU3.

- 1st May 2006: David Haywood - Been doing some work with ElSemi updating the Thumb support in the ARM core based on the Nebula code. As a result these are improved (but don't work properly due to various core bugs). They also run at about 25% speed because the ARM emulation is very demanding. Thanks to Mooglyguy for the original Thumb support (see Martial Masters and Knights of Valour 2).

- 0.103: David Haywood added Martial Masters (IGS 2001).

- 25th November 2003: Guru - Martial Masters (IGS 2001, PGM cart) arrived from Taucher.
