Namco Classics Collection Vol.2 (c) 1996 Namco.

Awesome collection of classic Namco games ("Pac-Man", "Dig Dug" and "Rally-X") with original and updated 'arrangement' versions available. Additionally "New Rally-X" is available as well.


Namco System ND-1 hardware

Game ID : NCS

Main CPU : 68000 (@ 12.288 Mhz), H8/3002 (@ 16.384 Mhz)

Sound Chips : C352 (@ 16.384 Mhz)

Players : 2

Control : 8-way joystick

Buttons : 2


Released in March 1996.

One major note for purists : The 'original' versions of "Rally-X" and "New Rally-X" have been slightly altered. Those games originally used a horizontal monitor. They have been altered to use a vertical one. What they did is moved the map and scoring section from the side to the bottom, leaving the actual gameplay area basically unchanged.

0.74u2 [Mark McDougal]

0.53 [?]

0.37b16 [Mark McDougall, Guru]


- Namco Classics Collection Vol.2 contains Pacman, Dig Dug and Rally-X.


- 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.2'.

- 0.136: David Haywood commented out some harmful and suspicious looking interrupt generation in NamcoND1 driver until it's being properly verified; fixes Game Options menu in NCV2 test mode.

- 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).

- 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.2

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

- 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.

- 0.86u4: Mark McDougall added tile flipping in NCV2.

- 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. R. Belmont fixed H8/3002 btst #imm, @Rn instruction - it was giving reversed results, which crashed NCV2's MCU program. Some tile flip problems in classic pacman / rallyx and some sound problems (hanging sound in digdug classic). 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.

- 0.74u2: Mark McDougall added Namco Classics Collection Vol.2 (Namco 1996) and clone (Japan).

- 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.

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

- 25th March 2003: David Haywood fixed the incorrect graphics in Namco Classics Vol.2 but it still crashes when trying to start a game.

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

- 4th July 2001: Mark McDougall added Namco Classics Vol.2 to the NCV1 driver, but it doesn't quite work because of missing rotation / zoom emulation.

- 0.53: Added Namco Classics Vol.2 (Testdriver).

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

- 0.37b16: Mark McDougall added Namco Classics Vol.2 (Japan) (Testdriver).

- 11th June 2001: Mark McDougall worked on adding Namco Classics Vol.2, but the driver isn't complete yet.

- 9th June 2001: Guru - Namco Classics Collection #2 is now dumped. Thanks to Malcor for dumping the surface-mounted ROMs.

- 19th May 2001: Guru - Received the Namco Classics #2 PCB and have sent it off to a friend to be professionally dumped.
