MAME Info:

0.37b15 [Luca Elia]

< Japan >


- When you finish a level, sometimes the game runs like slow-motion. Kale (ID 00525)


- 0.143u3: Fixed rom names.

- 0.139u2: Phil Bennett fixed Bang Bang Ball and clone audio malfunction after using -autosave.

- 0.105u1: f205v and Corrado Tomaselli added clone Battle Bubble (v2.00). Brian Troha fixed dipswitches in Battle Bubble. Added 'Language' dipswitch to Bang Bang Ball.

- 6th April 2006: David Haywood - Despite being Korean I'm tempted to say this looks like a licensed version of Bang Bang Ball. At least the board doesn't look much like a bootleg having original graphics and sound chips rather than the standard bootleg clone chips. The memory map has changed, but the game is the same, but with different graphics.

- 5th April 2006: f205v dumped Battle Bubble (v2.00).

- 0.62: Added YMF278B stereo sound and missing sound1 rom (Yamaha YRW801 2MB rom with samples for the YMF278B OPL4).

- 13th August 2002: Olivier Galibert added the YMF278B sound emulation to Bang Bang Ball.

- 0.37b15: Luca Elia added Bang Bang Ball (v1.05) (Banpresto / Kunihiko Tashiro+Goodhouse 1996).

- 17th May 2001: Luca Elia added Bang Bang Ball to the Metro driver.
