MAME Info:

0.36b1 [Bryan McPhail]


- 0.133u1: Brian Troha added DIP locations to Sky Soldier.

- 0.128u6: Phil Bennett reduced all Alpha68k YM2413 clocks from 8MHz to 3.579545MHz. This fixed Sky Soldiers in-game music, which plays one octave higher.

- 0.37b2: Changed description to 'Sky Soldiers (US)'.

- 6th June 1999: Bryan McPhail has gotten a nice new shiny computer science degree, and for a nice celebration he almost finished some drivers. Here are some pics of Gang Wars, Gold Medalist, Sky Adventure, Sky Soldiers and Time Soldiers, but don't expect to see these before 0.36b1.

- 0.36b1: Bryan McPhail added Sky Soldiers (SNK / Romstar 1988).
