0.36b1 [Andrew Prime]

0.33b3 [Mirko Buffoni]


* Wanted: 317-0065/0067 FD1094 CPUs

* Wanted: 317-0076/0077/0078 8751 MCUs


- 0.113u3: Nicola Salmoria added proper MC8123 decryption code and MC-8123B 317-0066.key to clones Altered Beast (set 2), (set 3) and (set 4).

- 0.112u2: Brian Troha properly idenitified cpu2 sound ROMs for clone Altered Beast (set 2, MC-8123B 317-0066).

- 0.111u1: Alex Jackson fixed a miscompilation issue with GCC4 that was first noticed in Altered Beast but also affected Moonwalker, Galaxy Force 2 and probably many other games.

- 0.103u4: David Haywood fixed graphics banking in 8751-based Altered Beast sets.

- 0.97u1: Changed description from 'Jyuohki' to 'Juuouki'

- 0.95: Nicola Salmoria corrected gfx roms loading in the Altered Beast sets. The sets were a mess. Some of them were using the wrong version of the gfx ROMs (that's why they had to be loaded in a strange way). Should be correct now.

- 0.92: Renamed (altbeast) to clone (altbeas2), (altbeasa) to (altbeast), (altb8751) to (altbeas5), (altbeas2) to (altbeas4), (jyuo8571) to (altbeasj), (jyuohki) to (altbeaj1) and (jyuohki2) to (altbeaj3).

- 0.89u6: Nicola Salmoria updated the MC8123 CPU. The table for 317-0066 (Altered Beast) are almost complete, but there are still some uncertain values for opcodes above 8000 (not actually needed).

- 0.89u3: Aaron Giles updated some game info against Thierry's spreadsheet; altbeast needs an encrypted Z80 for sound now. Nicola Salmoria and Dave Widel decrypted the MC-8123B 317-0066 sound cpu (Z80) of Altered Beast (Version 2).

- 0.89u2: Added I8751 (8MHz) MCU and mcu fake rom to altbeasa, altb8751 and jyuo8751.

- 0.88u7: Added clone Altered Beast (Version 1?, 8751 317-0078). Added new cpu1 roms and FD1094 key to clone Jyuohki (Japan, FD1094 317-0068).

- 0.88u6: Added clone Jyuohki (Japan, FD1094 317-0068).

- 11th November 2004: Chris Hardy - Dumped cpu 317-0068, one of the Japanese Altered Beast sets, it seems to work correctly.

- 0.84u5: Fabrice Arzeno added clones Altered Beast (8571 protected) and Jyuohki (Japan, 8571 protected).

- 15th March 2004: Charles MacDonald cleaned up altbeast, riotcity, bayroute and aurail (no junk in error logs, took care of unused inputs/outputs, etc.).

- 15th February 2004: Dave Widel emulated the sound CPU encryption in Altered Beast (set 2), though it breaks all the other games.

- 0.36b15: Added clone Jyuohki (Japan).

- 0.36b1: Andrew Prime added Altered Beast (Version 1).

- 0.34b4: Phil Stroffolino support sound in all of the working System 16 games. Added Z80 (4096000 Hz) CPU2 and YM-2151 (4096000 Hz) sound.

- 0.33b3: Mirko Buffoni added Altered Beast (Sega 1988).
