MAME Info:

0.91 [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]


- 0.144u4: Angelo Salese fixed priority and sprite Y positions in Dacholer. Changed Z80 CPU2 clock speed to 2496000 Hz, the 3x AY-3-8910A sound to 1248000 Hz and MSM5205 sound to 384000 Hz.

- 0.138u2: Added Kick Boy color prom to Dacholer. Changed palettesize to 32 colors.

- 0.135u2: Fabio Priuli added save state support to Dacholer driver.

- 0.128u5: Mamesick fixed Dacholer freezes on the title or credit.

- 0.125u5: Tomasz Slanina added sound emulation to Dacholer. Added 3x AY-3-8910A (1.5MHz) and MSM5205 (375000 Hz) sound.

- 12th June 2008: Tomasz Slanina - Fixed sound cpu interrupts (mode 2 (two vectors)+ nmi). Added sound and music. AY/MSM clocks are arbitrary. Just a guess - upper nibble of byte from port 3 _probably_ contains sound command (sound cpu writes it to port c).

- 0.118u3: Stephane Humbert updated Dacholer with now all known dipswitches. Added dipswitches 'Bonus Life' and 'Demo Sounds'.

- 0.91: Pierpaolo Prazzoli added Dacholer (Nichibutsu 1983). Missing proms (causes bad colours) and lack sound.

- 23rd January 2005: Pierpaolo Prazzoli - 2 quick additions for 2 rare Nichibutsu games (Dacholer (Nichibutsu 1983), Kick Boy (Nichibutsu 1983)). I still have to add sound and inputs. The bad news is that we're missing the colors proms from both.

- 10th January 2005: Xadhoom dumped Dacholer. EPROMs only.
