MAME Info:

0.61 [Jarek Burczynski]

0.37b15 [Jarek Burczynski]


- 0.132u1: Fixed wrong palette weights in Tube Panic.

- 0.131u2: Fabio Priuli fixed regression in Tube Panic and clone Tube Panic (bootleg).

- 0.122u7: Changed NSC8105 CPU4 clock speed to 6MHz.

- 0.120u4: Jarek Burczynski updated the Tube Panic driver, fixing the background scroll-in (it's smooth again now). The problem was caused by wrong synchronization between main and slave CPUs. Also modified the video driver to be scanline accurate and implemented more accurate interrupt handling. Changed NSC8105 CPU4 clock speed to 3MHz.

- 0.120u1: Sonikos added clone Tube Panic (bootleg). Removed 'Unused' and some 'Unknown' dipswitches.

- 0.111u3: Svante Gerhard added save state support to the Tube Panic driver.

- 10th April 2006: f205v, Gnoppi and Corrado Tomaselli dumped Tube Panic (bootleg).

- 0.86u1: Fixed some bugs in Tube Panic that were in 0.86 [various].

- 0.61: Jarek Burczynsk added Tube Panic (Nichibutsu + Fujitek 1984).

- 19th June 2002: Jarek Burczynski fixed a small graphics glitch in the Tube Panic rotated sprites.

- 10th June 2002: Jarek Burczynski fixed the backgrounds and sprites in Tube Panic and Roller Jammer.

- 29th November 2001: Jarek Burczynski added the ADPCM chip emulation to Roller Jammer, but both it and Tube Panic still lack sprite graphics, adding of which may be impossible without a MCU ROM dump.

- 0.37b15: Jarek Burczynski added Tube Panic (Testdriver).

- 6th April 2001: Jarek Burczynski sent in drivers for Tube Panic and Roller Jammers, but background graphics and sprites are missing.
