MAME Info:

0.111u6 [Ville Linde, Guru]


- 0.139u3: Added 2nd player.

- 0.141u1: MooglyGuy fixed garbled screen in Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth.

- 0.111u6: Ville Linde and Guru added Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth (Hudson/Seta 1998). The PIF Boot rom was not dumped.

- 24th September 2006: Ville Linde - Guru dumped the remaining Nintendo 64-based games in his possession: Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth, Vivid Dolls, Super Real Mahjong VS and Tower & Shaft. The Nintendo 64 emulation in MAME already works quite well, so I was able to get Star Soldier and Vivid Dolls to work with very little effort.

- 22nd February 2005: Guru - Star Soldier (Seta Aleck64 cart) just arrived.
