MAME Info:

0.111u6 [Ville Linde, Guru]


- 0.143u7: Changed input to 1 player.

- 0.111u6: Ville Linde and Guru added Tower & Shaft (Aruze 2003). The PIF Boot rom was not dumped.

- 24th September 2006: Ville Linde - Guru dumped the remaining Nintendo 64-based games in his possession: Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth, Vivid Dolls, Super Real Mahjong VS and Tower & Shaft. The Nintendo 64 emulation in MAME already works quite well, so I was able to get Star Soldier and Vivid Dolls to work with very little effort.

- 12th January 2006: Guru - A few packages arrived containing a Aleck 64 cart - Tower Shaft (Azure 2003). Most of these came from our Korean contact and a couple came from ebay purchased by Randy or Brian T.
