MAME Info:

0.84 [Aaron Giles]

0.74u2 [Aaron Giles]

0.37b15 [Aaron Giles]


- The video and sound hardware is quite similar to Guardians of the Hood and Road Riot 4WD. However, the SLOOP chip appears to have gone away, only to be replaced by something equally sinister. Space Lords uses this chip to produce the palette for the sprites, which is why all the screenshots have incorrect colors. The protection chip is also used to produce some in-game parameters, making it nigh impossible to play without accurate emulation.


- 0.143u4: Changed 68EC020 CPU1 clock speed to 14318181 Hz.

- 0.142: Added proms ($0, 200, 400) from Moto Frenzy. Not dumped from actual PCB, but seems common to the platform.

- 0.133u1: Renamed (spclordb) to (spclordsb), (spclorda) to (spclordsa) and (spclordg) to (spclordsg).

- 0.132u4: Fixed ADPCM roms addresses.

- 0.122u4: Changed M6502 CPU2 clock speed to 1789772 Hz, YM2151 to 3579545 Hz and 2x OKI6295 to 1193181 Hz.

- 0.84: Aaron Giles added Space Lords (rev C) and clone (rev A, German). Changed 'Space Lords' to clone 'Space Lords (rev B)' and clone 'Space Lords (alternate)' to 'Space Lords (rev A)'. Renamed (spclords) to (spclordb).

- 0.74u2: Aaron Giles added Space Lords (Atari Games 1992) and clone (alternate).

- 0.37b15: Aaron Giles added (Testdrivers) Space Lords and (alternate).
