Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom

0.58 [Nicola Salmoria]

0.57 [Aaron Giles]


Samples required


NOTE:

- Buck Rogers used analog sprite-scaling circuitry that is proving very difficult to emulate.

- 0.96u2: Nathan Woods rewrote 8255 PPI mode 2 support, and hooked 8255 to Buck Rogers properly. This fixes the 'Insert Coins' bug.
