0.36b2 [Andrew Prime]

TODO:

* Dump FD1094. Only clones working.


Bugs:

- In the ending, the 3 heroes are floating into a half bubble (see snapshot). astrombl236b4gre YMI

- At the end sequence of this game, some of the sprites shows wrong colors periodly. These also happens in System16 emulator. astormbl36b16gre Lord Caos

- Clone astormbl: Currently the graphics on this game are heavily garbled. Included are a pair of screenshots. This was not like this in previous versouns such as .95 i believe was the last time i tested this. Occurs in both .101 and .101u2 (see screenshots). astormbl0101u2yel John L

- Clone astormbl: In the later shooting gallery stage (like inside the car shop and the factory (mission 3), there are some garbage graphics (sprites of death monsters that appear where they should not). astormbl336b4gre YMI


WIP:

- 0.98u3: Mamesick fixed input port in Alien Storm and clone Alien Storm (set 1, Japan).

- 0.95u6: Fixed input/dips and changed 'Unknown' dipswitches to 'Unused'.

- 0.92: Renamed (astorm) to clone (astormj), (astorm2p) to (astorm), (astorma) to (astorm3), (astormb) to (astormu).

- 0.89u4: Gerald added clone Alien Storm (US, 3 Players, FD1094 317-0147).

- 0.89u1: Aaron Giles fixed Player 3 controls in Alien Storm and sound ROM loading in astorma and astorm2p. Added 317-0148.key to Alien Storm (World).

- 25th November 2004: Thierry Lescot - Dumped the cpus from Where's Wally?, Bay Route (set 2), Alien Storm (317-0148) and Shinobi (set 2).

- 27th October 2004: David Haywood - Sega actually draw little enemies in Alien Storm with the VDP (as well as the ball during Clutch Hitter gameplay). These little creatures seem to be completely missing from the bootleg.

- 4th October 2004: Charles MacDonald - Here's Alien Storm (System 18, 317-0146) decrypted and running. I'd like to thank Dave Widel for generously donating several FD1094's, which made decrypting this game possible. This is the 2-player version of Alien Storm. One of my favorite games, and it's great to have it properly emulated at long last. It passes all the ROM/RAM checks and seems to be working 100%, with some emulator related graphics problems aside.

- 18th March 2004: Charles MacDonald fixed Z80 clock (8.192 Mhz -> 8.00 MHz).

- 15th March 2004: Charles MacDonald added I/O chip and partial VDP emulation for shdancer, shdancrj, shdancbl, shdancrb, moonwlkb and astormbl.

- 0.36b4: Changed the YM-3438 clock speeds to 8MHz.

- 0.36b2: Andrew Prime added Alien Storm (Sega 1990).

- 0.36b1: Added dipswitches '2 Credits to Start', 'Demo Sounds' and 'Difficulty'.

- 0.34b4: Phil Stroffolino added Alien Storm (bootleg) (not working).
