Golden Axe (set 6, US, 8751 317-123A)

0.33b3 [Mirko Buffoni]


* Wanted: 317-0112/0123A 8751 MCUs


- All three Golden Axe sets based on the 5704 ROM board (goldnax2, goldnax3 and goldnaxj) have two of their four CPU ROMs in common: epr12521.a8 and epr12519.a6. However, I believe that these ROMs are incorrect for goldnax3 and goldnaxj, since both these sets fail their ROM test in service mode (see screenshot). goldnax2 does pass the ROM test. Updated by AWJ: I've asked CGFM about this and he says the ROMs pass the test on the PCB. So the failed test in MAME is caused by an emulation problem, not mismatched ROMs. From Haze: passing shot sets also fail their rom check fwiw. goldnaxe0103u2ora AWJ / Haze


- 0.112u2: Aaron Giles fixed bad bits in a couple of FD1094 keys and added a small optimization to the FD1094 decoding step. Added new FD1094 317-0122 key to clone Golden Axe (set 5, US, FD1094 317-0122).

- 0.97u5: Aaron Giles hooked up missing P2 inputs in I8751 versions Golden Axe (set 6) and clone (set 2).

- 0.92: Renamed (goldnaxe) to clone (goldnax2), (goldnaxa) to (goldnaxe), (goldnaxc) to (goldnaxu) and (goldnxj2) to (goldnax3).

- 0.89u2: Moved Golden Axe (8751) to the new segas16b.c driver. Added Z80 (5MHz) CPU2, I8751 (8Mhz) MCU and mcu fake rom. Fixed gfx2 roms addresses.

- 0.88u6: Added clone Golden Axe (Version 1, World, FD1094 317-0120).

- 17th November 2004: Charles MacDonald - Dumped the cpu from what appears to be a *real* japanese set of Golden Axe (i suspect all the other japanese sets are world sets). This set has a japan warning on startup, blood dripping on the player select screen, japanese subtitles and it does have the extra scene.

- 0.88u3: Added new 317-0122.key for clone Golden Axe (Version 2).

- 0.88u1: Charles MacDonald and Nicola Salmoria improve the FD1094 emulation. More sets now run (eswatu, fpoint, goldnaxc and cltchitr).

- 4th October 2004: Charles MacDonald - I'm looking for information about the System 16B version of Golden Axe, using a FD1094 with part number 317-0122. If someone can provide a description or scans of the ROM board, please get in touch.

- 0.36b15: Added clone Golden Axe (Version 1, Japan).

- 0.36b2: Andrew Prime added clones Golden Axe (bootleg), (Version 2 317-0110) and (Version 2 317-0122).

- 0.36b1: Andrew Prime added clone Golden Axe (Version 2).

- 0.34b4: Phil Stroffolino support sound in all of the working System 16 games. Added Z80 (4096000 Hz) CPU2 and YM-2151 (4096000 Hz) sound.

- 0.33b3: Mirko Buffoni added Golden Axe (Sega 1989).
