HeliFire (set 1)

0.33b6 [Al Kossow]


* Add missing SN76477 sound


- 0.82u2: Stefan Jokisch update Nintendo 8080 hardware. The driver has now been split into three parts. A few features that have been missing in Helifire since my last update are back, i.e. the flickering colors when you're shot and the volume decay effect (this affects the melody at the start of a game and a few tunes that can be heard during the bonus scenes every twelve attack waves). The starfield should now scroll at the correct speed, it's only 75% of what it used to be.

- 0.80u2: Stefan Jokisch fixed starfield pattern, confirmed by shots on the flyer and starfield priority (no more stars in the water), various audio and video effects are still missing, including a few which were previously implemented and which I hope to re-add soon, properly hooked up sound CPU (different from the other games), fixed video bugs related to pausing and frame skipping, added partial support for cocktail mode, added IMPERFECT_GRAPHICS and NO_COCKTAIL flags and corrected bonus life DIP. Changed 8080 CPU1 clock speed to 2016000 Hz, visible area to 224x256 and removed 'VR3 height of the sea' and 'VR4 height of the waves' dipswitches.

- 0.76u1: Added DAC sound, potentiometers dipswitches (brightness, height) and changed palettesize from 8 to 1032 colors.
