- 0.140u2: Atari Ace take some driver_device classes of junofrst/pooyan/rallyx/rocnrope/timeplt/tutankhm (common code in audio/timeplt.c) that cover multiple drivers and split them so that each driver gets their own driver_device class. In most cases, these drivers got entangled because of audio/mcu code that was shared between multiple drivers. Added 'Time Pilot Audio' sound.

- 0.129: Kevin Eshbach added placeholders for various PALs on the Roc'n Rope systems.

- 0.123u1: Zsolt Vasvari removed color tables from Roc'n Rope. Added RESNET color computations where appropriate. Fixed gfx1/2 rom loading. Changed palettesize to 512 colors.

- 5th November 2006: Mr. Do - Added Roc'n Rope bezel, thanks to Ad_Enuff and Aaron.

- 0.93: Added 6x RC_Filter.

- 0.71u1: Curt Coder converted Roc'n Rope to use tilemaps. Removed 3rd coin slot.

- 0.67: Changed M6809 CPU1 clock speed to 1.6MHz (attract mode depends on this to work correctly).

- 0.36b10: Nicola Salmoria added Roc'n Rope (Konami 1983). Changed 'Roc'n Rope' to clone 'Roc'n Rope (Kosuka)'. Renamed (rocnrope) to (rocnropk). Removed Rope Man (bootleg).

- 17th November 1999: Nicola added another Rock'n Rope romset.

- 0.31: Paul Swan added accurate colors to Roc'n Rope. Jim Hernandez fixed music tempo and pitch in Roc'n Rope.

- 0.30: Chris Hardy added Rock'n'Rope (Konami 1983) and clone Rope Man. Based on drivers from Juno First emulator by Chris Hardy. Known issues: Colors come from the bootleg version, they might be correct for that version, but they are wrong for the original. The bootleg version crashes when you start a game. This is might be due to a slightly different encryption scheme.
