Crack Down (World, Floppy Based, FD1094 317-0058-04c)

0.78 [Olivier Galibert]


* Some graphical problems


- 0.101: Added new disk image ds3-5000-04b.img to clone (Japan).

- 0.100u1: David Haywood and Team Japump added clone Crack Down (Japan, FD1094 317-0058-04b).

- 6th August 2005: Dave Widel - I've sent a Crack Down cpu and disk to Charles for dumping. Hopefully that will resolve the problems with it in MAME, whether it is a disk error cpu decryption error.

- 0.99: Nicola Salmoria and Chris Hardy fixed 1-bit errors in decryption keys for Crack Down and one of the D. D. Crew sets.

- 0.95u6: Fixed input and dipswitches. Changed description to 'Crack Down'.

- 0.95u2: David Haywood attempted to fix crash in Crackdown.

- 4th April 2005: Dumping Project - Randy have won a board that was supposed to be 'Scramble Spirits' but turned out to be 'Crackdown' (contributing to the recent progress in the emulation of that game).

- 0.95u1: Charles MacDonald dumped a key for Crackdown, it appears to decrypt the disk image recognised by Mame, although there are a number of glitches which may be due to bad system24 emulation, or a bad disk, and it crashes when you attempt to start the game. David Haywood figured out where the missing Sega logo was, Crackdown doesn't seem to like the current sprite clipping implementation in the System 24 driver, however, he don't think its an identical version to the one shown at System 16 because the Sega logo is never shown against the wall (unless the shot for the flyer used at S16 was doctored which wouldn't be uncommon for flyers). He also worked out why the game crashed, it needs valid default settings. Factory defaults can be restored in the service menu, however, this doesn't restore the default high scores which are lost forever once somebody beats the top 3 so the chances of us finding an unused Crackdown disk with original high scores intact seems somewhat hopeless. Anyway, aside from a few graphical glitches (the mentioned clipping, and a transparency, or clipping bug in the map display) the game appears to be fully working.

LEVELS: 16 (4x4)


- At the beginning of the 21st century, an "Artificial Life System" was created. An evil leader guides them in their quest to conquer the world. The Federal Government has issued an order to its two Special Service Agents (Ben Breaker and Andy Attacker). Their mission is to destroy the enemy facilities by using a new type of time bomb.
