MAME Info:

0.35b3 [Nicola Salmoria]


- 0.140u2: Changed description to 'Turbo Force (old revision)'. Note: There's also an undumped Turbo Force (new revision). Most notable thing in there is the points value of the rocks in level 6 (5.000 versus 500).

- 0.135u1: Corrado Tomaselli verified/changed clocks and VSync to 61.31 Hz in Turbo Force.

- 0.122u1: Corrado Tomaselli modified the Turbo Force sound Z80 to 5Mhz.

- 0.109: Canim fixed some sprite priorities problems in Turbo Force (the problem is related with the final enemy in stage 3, which is moving along the level under the floor).

- 0.103u5: Pierpaolo Prazzoli undid the fix for bug turbofrc37b1gre since it broke more things that it fixed.

- 0.103u2: Pierpaolo Prazzoli added a custom sprites drawing function needed to fix Turbo Force sprites priority issues.

- 0.81u7: Brian Troha fixed dipswitches in Turbo Force. Added 'Coinage' dipswitch.

- 0.78u5: Added 'Unknown' dips.

- 0.72u2: Added dipswitches 'Difficulty' and 'Bonus Life'.

- 0.37b16: Changed visible area to 240x352.

- 0.37b1: Nicola Salmoria fixed front layer in Turbo Force. Replaced gfx2 rom ($0) with a new dump.

- 0.36b4: Added fake gfx2 rom ($0).

- 0.35b4: Added gfx1 rom ($80000) and gfx2 rom ($80000) - gfx2 rom ($0) is still missing.

- 0.35b3: Nicola Salmoria added Turbo Force (Video System 1991). Known issues: The front scrolling layer is completely wrong. You can see the title and American flag correctly only due to a hack. Everything else is wrong. The only explanation I have for this is a missing gfx ROM. To toggle the front layer off and on, press the space bar. You'll need to in later levels otherwise you won't see the background and some enemies.

- 20th December 1998: Dumped Turbo Force. Note: A few of the roms are missing. These are at chips locations U95 (27C2001), U106 (27C2001) and U115 (27C2048).

LEVELS: 7 (endless)
