galpanic.c

0.35b2 [Nicola Salmoria]


TODO:

- There is a vector for IRQ4. The function does nothing in galpanic but is more complicated in the Comad ones. However I'm not triggering it, and they seems to work anyway...

- Four unknown ROMs in fantasia. The game seems to work fine without them.

- There was a ROM in the newfant set, obj2_14.rom, which was identical to Terminator 2's t2.107. I can only assume this was a mistake of the dumper.

- lots of unknown reads and writes, also in galpanic but particularly in the Comad ones.

- fantasia and newfant have a service mode but they doesn't work well (text is missing or replaced by garbage). This might be just how the games are.

- Is there a background enable register? Or a background clear. fantasia and newfant certainly look ugly as they are.

- Gals Panic: The current ROM set is strange because two ROMs overlap two others replacing the program. It's definitely a Kaneko boardset, but it could very well be they converted some other game to run Gals Panic, because there's some ROMs piggybacked on top of each other and some ROMs on a daughterboard plugged into smaller sized ROM sockets. It's not a pirate version. The piggybacked ROMs even have Kaneko stickers. The silkscreen on the board says PAMERA-4. There is at least another version of the Gals Panic board. It's single board, so no daughterboard. There are only 4 IC's socketed, the rest is soldered to the board, and no piggybacked ROMs. Board number is MDK 321 V-0 EXPRO-02.

- Zip Zap: Bg for select screens seems to be corrupt

- General Notes: Fantasia etc. games are locking up when the girl 'changes' due to not liking the way we handle OKI status reads. However these reads are correct according to tests done with a real chip so there must be something odd going on on this hardware. From Miss World 96 manual/dipswitch sheet, there are three Versions depending on nude grade: A-Version is the extreme hottest nude models, B-Version is the more attractive nude models and C-Version is very beautiful bikini models. An example of this can be seen in Fantasia II with type A & B. The current set of Super Model is an example of type C.


NOTES:

- The Comad games run on hardware similar to Gals Panic, with a different sprite system. They are not ROM swaps because the addresses of work RAM and of the OKI chip change from one to the other, however everything else is pretty much identical.


WIP:

- 0.87: Sebastien Volpe merged the read/write memory maps for the 3 galpanic sets.

- 0.85u1: Inigo Luja added conditional dipswitches in the Gal's Panic driver.
