Bionic Commando (Euro)

0.110u3 [Stefan Lindberg]

0.34b1 [Steven Frew, Phil Stroffolino, Paul Leaman]


- When playing on stage 2 'infiltration' (or just using the sound test) the music (Sound test 02)'s second loop has several of the instruments offset forward (in time) from when they should be playing. On subsequent loops it gets worse and worse. It sounds to me like something is looping over ['wrapping around'] too late/incorrectly. Same thing happens on the pcb. Fujix


- About the TODO list in bionicc.c (see source): MAME behaves exactly like the pcb, so those are not bugs. bionicc0109ora Kold666
