Game's ROM.

MAME Info:

0.107 [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]


- 0.145u5: Stephane Humbert fixed dipswitches and inputs in 18 Holes Pro Golf (after verification of the M6502 code). Added dipswitches 'Coin A/B', 'Cabinet', 'Lives', 'Bonus Life', 'Difficulty', 'Display Strength and Position', 'Force Coinage = A 1C/3C - B 1C/8C', 'Coin Mode' and 2x 'Unused'.

- 0.133u2: Angelo Salese and Robiza fixed 18 Holes Pro Golf - Game now playable. Implemented preliminary bg map banking in 18 Holes Pro Golf. Robiza patched progolfa rom like progolf. Removed bad dump flag in progolf, with progolfa you get the same rom error in test mode and progolfa have different encryption.

- 5th August 2009: Robiza - Solved the problems in '18 Holes Pro Golf', in particular implemented the banking. The most interesting is that the hardarew can access the bytes contained in the graphic rom this through a window between 0x8000 and 0x8fff. This is needed to handle collisions since code is isolated from the pixel under the ball to see where the ball itself.

- 0.133u1: Robiza decrypted clone 18 Holes Pro Golf (set 2).

- 0.132u1: Angelo Salese added framebuffer support in 18 Holes Pro Golf. Fixed backgrounds and added inputs. Decoupled from Burger Time. Changed M6502 CPU1 clock speed to 1.5MHz. Added dipswitches 'Service Mode', 'IN0', 'IN3', 'DSW1', 'DSW2' and 23x 'Unknown'.

- 9th June 2009: Angelo Salese - I've convinced myself in looking the three GNW "Dec0 Pro" games series (a.k.a. 18 Holes Pro Golf, Pro Sport and Pro Soccer). The game with the worst condition was 18 Holes Pro Golf, so I've started to look at it for first. It's basically a nightmare, with a background layer and a tilemap/bitmap framebuffer hybrid mess, with "tilemap cells" that are written to the resulting screen as-is, without any tilemap hook-up for it as you might expect... And now the bad news: it has issues with the main program (for example hazards doesn't do anything), that might be caused by a bad rom or a slightly bad decryption (service mode returns "rom bad error 6" as well).

- 0.129u2: Changed description to '18 Holes Pro Golf (set 1)' and clone to '18 Holes Pro Golf (set 2)'. Angelo Salese fixed gfx regression with 18 Holes Pro Golf and added proper memory map for the second CPU. Added M6502 (500000 Hz) CPU2. Changed region cpu1 to audio.

- 0.129: Aaron Giles fixed a few out-of-bounds errors revealed by randomly initializing auto_malloc() memory. These would manifest themselves as difficult-to-reproduce crashes on some systems. Affects Pro Golf and other drivers.

- 0.107: Pierpaolo Prazzoli added Pro Golf (set 1) (Data East 1981) and clone (set 2).

- 12th May 2006: Guru - 18 Hole Pro Golf (Data East) arrived from Japan.

- 27th November 2005: Pierpaolo Prazzoli - Something tries to start in Pro Golf (Data East 1981).

- 29th November 2004: Guru - 2x Pro Golf (Data East 198x) arrived. Has some sort of custom CPU/epoxy block on it. Purchased by Randy on eBay a few months ago IIRC as mostly unknown stuff that went fairly cheaply.
