MAME Info:

0.86 [Ville Linde]


- 0.142u1: RetroRepair added clone Thrill Drive (EAA).

- 0.137u2: The Dumping Union added clone Thrill Drive (JAB). Changed parent description to 'Thrill Drive (JAE)'.

- 0.135u4: Fabio Priuli moved K056800 sound device to emu\sound and removed the old code. Updated Thrill Drive to use this implementation.

- 0.133u3: Changed RF5C400 sound clock speed to 16934400 Hz.

- 0.127u2: Added M48T58Y RTC/NVRAM timekeeper rom.

- 0.114u1: Ville Linde improved the NWK-TR driver to get Thrill Drive mostly working. Added 'Disable Machine Init' dipswitch.

- 9th April 2007: Ville Linde - Even more Voodoo stuff. Thrill Drive is starting to work (see snapshots).

- 0.110u3: Added RF5C400 stereo sound.

- 0.97u2: Changed user3 roms ($800000 + c00000) to user5.

- 0.97u1: Added 68000 (16MHz) CPU2 and ADSP21062 (36MHz) CPU3. Swapped user2 roms. Added dipswitches 'Test Mode' and 'DIP2-DIP8'.

- 5th June 2005: Ville Linde - Turns out that Konami Hornet and NWK-TR games require some preformatted data in their backup RAMs (probably as a protective measure). So far I've managed to find the correct values for Gradius 4, Silent Scope, Racing Jam and Racing Jam 2, leaving Silent Scope 2 and Thrill Drive to be done. Silent Scope and Racing Jam start to boot but end up spinning much like Racing Jam 2.

- 0.86: Ville Linde added Thrill Drive (Konami 1998) and various other Konami PPC based games: GTI Club, Gradius 4, Silent Scope, Silent Scope 2, Racing Jam, Racing Jam: Chapter 2, Midnight Run and Winding Heat. These are to demonstrate the PPC core in action, they contain only very preliminary emulation and do nothing more than display the initial test screens.

- 11th July 2004: Ville Linde - Hornet games hit a deadend, so I quickly moved on to NWK-TR games with some success. Racing Jam and Thrill Drive hang to some IC tests, much like the Hornet games.
