MAME Info:

0.37b16 [Mark McDougall]

Artwork available


- Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 contains Mappy, Xevious and Galaga.


- [possible] First byte in gfx rom is wrong. MASH (ID 04729)


- 0.141u4: Further decoupled some driver files to help driver_device conversions [Atari Ace]: YGV608 is made independent of Namco ND-1 driver. Convert Namco ND-1 driver to driver_device.

- 0.136u4: Heihachi_73 changed description to 'Namco Classic Collection Vol.1'.

- 0.127u5: Fabio Priuli fixed unable to coin/start Namco ND-1 games.

- 0.123u1: Added 'Service Mode' dipswitch.

- 0.122u5: Atari Ace fixed a memory leak in video\ygv608.c (memleak0122u2ora).

- 1st April 2007: Mr. Do - My favorite out of the bunch of stuff from Vintage Arcade Superstore was the instruction card for Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1; just need to find the second one now.

- 0.106u7: Aaron Giles fixed a heavily flicker in NCV1 and NCV2 (vidhrdw\ygv608.c).

- 0.104u4: Adam Bousley added save states to Namco Classics Collection Vol.1

- 0.99u10: R. Belmont fixed missing sound in Namco Classics games.

- 0.99u9: Aaron Giles removed tilemap_dispose call and fixed the two drivers that were using it. This fixes improper save state registrations in megasys1 and namcond1/ygv608 games.

- 0.99u6: Changed description of clone '(Japan set 1)' to '(Japan, v1.00)' and '(Japan set 2)' to '(Japan, v1.03)'.

- 0.99u1: Cync fixed several problems in the H8/3002 core. Improves sound in Namco ND-1.

- 5th August 2005: R. Belmont - Got a nice present today from a coder who goes by Cync: a set of major bugfixes to the H8/3002 CPU core. As you know, this is the "sub-CPU" in many later Namco games. So what do the fixes do? They correct most of what was wrong with the sound and music in all of the ND-1 (NCV1/NCV2) and System 12 games. All the games involved now sound way better, and of course I've already backported the fixes to ZiNc so the music's better there too.

- 0.96u2: Swapped left/right sound channels.

- 0.86u3: Namco Classics Improvements [R. Belmont]. Added H8/3002 MCU and C352 sound chip. Both NCV1 and NCV2 are now fully playable with full sound and music. Added H8/3002 (16384000 Hz) CPU2 and C352 stereo sound.

- 2nd September 2004: R. Belmont - Fixed a bug in the H8/3002 CPU core. Got it on speaking terms with the 68000 on the Namco ND-1 hardware. Result: Namco Classics Collection volumes 1 and 2 are both fully playable with full sound and music.

- 29th June 2004: R. Belmont - Started cleaning up ZiNc's H8/3002 core for MAME submission (this will add sound and fix protection on Namco Classics 1 & 2 and the System 12 games*). Fixed some flag calculations on the ADD opcodes and some "edge cases" on the C352 to improve music in NCV1/2. Still need to fix some issues with the controls in Aqua Rush and Paca Paca.

- 0.70u5: Guru improved NCV1 filenames. Added missing 2MB sound1 rom.

- 0.67: Changed parent and clone descriptions to 'Namco Classics Collection Vol.1'.

- 0.62: CusKey simulation for Namco games [John Wil].

- 0.60: Fixed Namco Classics Vol.1 crashes after you insert a coin.

- 0.53: Changed visible area to 224x288 and added 2MB fake sound1 rom.

- 16th July 2001: Mark McDougall optimized the Namco ND-1 driver.

- 0.37b16: Mark McDougall added Namco Classics Vol.1 (Namco 1995) and clones (Japan set 1) and (Japan set 2).

- 8th June 2001: Mark McDougall sent in his Namco Classics Vol.1 driver, which lacks some graphical effects and sound.
