alpha68k.c

0.36b1 [Bryan McPhail]


NOTES:

- All II & V games are 68000, z80 plus a custom Alpha microcontroller, the microcontroller is able to write to anywhere within main memory.

- Gold Medalist (bootleg) has a 68705 in place of the Alpha controller.

- V boards have more memory and double the amount of colours as II boards.

- Time Soldiers - make the ROM writable and the game will enter a 'debug' kind of mode, probably from the development system used.

- Time Soldiers - Title screen is corrupt when set to 'Japanese language', the real board does this too! (Battlefield is corrupt when set to English too).

- The Next Space is not an Alpha game, but the video hardware is identical to Paddlemania.
