- 0.139u2: Anondumper added clone Raiden Fighters (Asia, Metrotainment Network license, SPI). Changed description of clone 'Raiden Fighters (Dream Island Co. license)' to 'Raiden Fighters (Asia, Dream Island Co., LTD. license, SPI)'. Renamed (rdftdi) to (rdftadi).

- 26th July 2008: Mr. Do - Funny story. Tormod sent me a BUNCH of instruction cards a long time ago. You've probably been seeing them added in every so often. Well, around July of last year, I had completed a whole bunch of them, but then had a computer crash, and they ended up on the "spare" hard drive by mistake. I found them again going through a cleanup. So thanks to Tormod, this week we have Raiden Fighters.

- 0.123u5: Corrado Tomaselli added clone Raiden Fighters (Austria).

- 9th March 2008: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Raiden Fighters (Austria).

- 0.93u2: Added clone Raiden Fighters (Japan set 2). Changed parent description to 'Raiden Fighters (Japan set 1)'.

- 0.88u2: Added clone Raiden Fighters (Australia). Renamed (raidnfgt) to (rdft).

- 0.81u6: Ville Linde found and fixed bugs in several i386 shift/rotate instructions. This corrects the bosses in Raiden Fighters.

- 0.81u4: Ville Linde updated the i386 core and the SPI driver. Raiden Fighters now runs normally and correctly through attract mode and gameplay, modulo the encrypted graphics. Still kinda mesmerizing. R. Belmont hooked up the Z80 bankswitching, so sound started playing in some games (notably Raiden Fighters). Changed region sound2 to sound1 ($200000).
