Beezer (set 1)

0.37b8 [Mathis Rosenhauer]


TODO:

* Hook up sound (DAC/Custom + 6840 Timer)

* Dump the Midway licensed version of Beezer


NOTE:

- Beezer resets on level 9 if a laid egg is allowed to hatch. - beezer1 supports 10 bees at a time, levels 10 and up start with 10 bees and earlier levels can hatch new bees from eggs. However when there are 9 bees (not counting the queen) on any level a new egg will be removed instead of hatching. This is due to a bug in the rom which was fixed in beezer. When beezer is in the same situation as above it resets when the egg hatches creating the 10th bee. This is due to another bug in the rom that was exposed when the above beezer1 bug was fixed. beezer1 has wrong colours on levels 10, 20, 30 etc. This is due to a bug in the rom which was fixed in beezer. Of course I don't have a real machine to confirm but am pretty sure that the emulation has nothing to do with these problems. Since it's almost impossible to get past level 9 on beezer without it resetting I'm wondering if a later undumped version exists. insideoutboy
