MAME Info:

0.37b9 [David Graves, Brian Troha]

< Japan >


- 0.118u2: Added dipswitches 'Demo Sounds' and 7x 'Unused'.

- 0.90u3: Removed ADPCM sound.

- 0.59: Fixed missing sprites in the character select screen on vs mode.

- 14th February 2002: David Graves fixed a sprite priority bug in Eto.

- 0.37b9: David Graves and Brian Troha added Kokontouzai Eto Monogatari (Japan) (Visco 1994). TODO: $76d0 might be a protection check? It reads to and writes from the prog rom. Doesn't seem to cause problems though. Service mode wasn't working: log showed it writing stuff around $c04xxx and regularly at $73ce reading $400000-f, inverting all bits and copying to RAM. These must be service mode mirrors for tilemaps and inputs. Strangely, spriteram and the TC0100SCN mirror overlap.

- 13th October 2000: David Graves further improved the new Taito drivers' groundwork and fixed sprite / tile priorities in the Asuka & Asuka driver games.

- 7th October 2000: David Graves added Kokontouzai Eto Monogatari to the Asuka & Asuka driver.
