MAME Info:

0.141u4 [Roberto Fresca, Angelo Salese, Rob Ragon]


WIP:

- 0.141u4: Roberto Fresca, Angelo Salese and Rob Ragon added 'Winners Circle (82)' (Corona Co, LTD. 1982) and clones (81, 28*28 PCB) and (81, 18*22 PCB). New driver for Winners Circle (Corona), dual CPU hardware [Roberto Fresca]. Roberto Fresca fixed the visible screen area to improve the Winners Circle aspect.

- 5th March 2011: Roberto Fresca - With the help of Rob Ragon we found some great treasures! If you were to ask any old arcade operator about gambling games history, they would all say that it started with the Winners Circle horse racing machines. Made in the very early 80's (1980-1982) by Corona Co LTD, these machines were very addictive to play and used very modern hardware for the age. After a time, some companies made new software and hardware modifications for these boards (with some major hardware changes) to allow roulette to be played with as many as 6 players. The hardware is composed by 2x Z80 CPU's, 1x AY-3-8912, blitter for video, and a lot of weird things. Special thanks to Angelo Salese, that kindly helped me rewritting the blitter system and hooking periodic interrupts to the sound CPU.
