Large CAESAR Logo

Columns (World)

0.37b9 [David Haywood, Aaron Giles]


* Wanted: 317-0149.27 EPM5032

Possible Bugs:

- When you switch stones and the whole stone is not yet in-screen and the last move wasn't a winner ("stones deleted"), there won't be any switching-sound. I know this is a bug but it could be an in-game bug ... anyone thinks this is an in-game bug too? columns37b10gre Jonemaan


- 0.102u4: Arzeno Fabrice added clone Columns (US, cocktail).

- 14th December 2005: David Haywood - Thanks to Arzeno Fabrice the US version of Columns is now supported (the old 'US' set is actually a World set). The US set is slightly different to the other sets, it has the WDUD logo, then an additional Sega logo previously only found in Columns 2, a dipswitch to enable cocktail mode and different music (although I have no idea WHY they changed the music, the new music doesn't fit with the game at all, it's the music from Columns 2 when it uses the standard graphic pieces).

- 0.37b10: Changed 68000 CPU1 clock speed to 7670442 Hz and SN76496 to 3579540 Hz.

- 0.37b9: Added Columns (US) and clone (Japan).

- 15th September 2000: David Haywood submitted a very preliminary Sega C2 driver, currently supporting only Puyo Puyo, Columns and Columns II.
