Crazy Balloon (set 1)

0.33b4 [Nicola Salmoria]


- A report from the dumper of the current set. A moving thorn after 2nd stage surely disappeared after your balloon collided with a moving thorn, and then it never appeared again with the real board. crbaloon36finalgre Fujix


- 0.111u6: Zsolt Vasvari and Derrick Renaud rewroted the SN76477 emulator from scratch. The main difference between the old one and the new one is that it is based on measurements from a real chip. Also the emulator is fully analog, meaning that timings/frequencies, etc. are based on voltage levels. This gives a much more true-to-life emulation where the weird behavior of the real chip comes emulated for free. The code itself is also a lot simpler and more understandable.
