F-1 Dream

0.33b3 [Paul Leaman]


- f1dream (and clone): When crashing on horizontal guard-rails, the car "teleports" into another part of the track (or even another track!). See inp file. f1dream061gre Kale

- f1dream: Points counter at the end of a game is broken. With the attached inp file, it should say 66, but the counter says 18. (see inp file). f1dream061gre3 Kale

Possible Bugs:

- Map display has a wrong priority value. It should cover everything, instead some objects (tunnels, advertising panels) have an highter priority (see snapshot). Objection from Mamesick in 0.111u2: Are we sure it's not an original game bug? The video harware is simple, It seems strange that only 1 sprite should be drawn with highest priority... Current priorities order is: background, sprites, foreground. Tiger Road (same driver) don't need at all a different priorities order and don't have any priority bug. Of course, F1dream could have a sort of "special" priority bit for the map, who knows. But Capcom coders were lazy, you know. f1dream061gre2 Kale / Mamesick

- Clone f1dreamb: On the "Monaco" course (the fourth) there's an invisible wall almost near to the last corner. Just do a quick Time trial for confirmation on it (happens every time)... (see inp file) f1dreamb061gre Kale


- 0.37b7: Fixed gfx2/3 rom loading.

- 0.36b15: Added prom ($0 - priority).

- 0.36b9: Changed clock speed of the 2x YM2203 to 3579545 Hz.

- 5th May 1999: Mike Coates fixed the F-1 Dream and Power Spikes 2 bug in the x86 assembler and probably also C cores.

- 0.35b13: Changed description to 'F-1 Dream'.

- 0.35b12: Mike Coates fixed F1 Dream protection workaround (note that the game still doesn't work correctly with the 68000 C core).

- 0.35b3: Eric Hustvedt simulated the 8751 protection in F1 Dream, but it seems to work on Macs only (endian issue?).

- 0.34b2: Paul Leaman added F1 Dream (bootleg) (this one works). There's a sort of invisible wall in the last straight of the fourth circuit. Nicola Salmoria fixed a bug in the 68000 BCD emulation which caused the F1 Dream timer to malfunction.

- 0.33b3: Paul Leaman added F1 Dream (Capcom 1988) (preliminary). Due to protection, the original doesn't work.
