Knuckle Joe (set 1)

0.37b7 [Ernesto Corvi]


- kncljoe and clones: Sometimes man looks like football player run in wrong direction. Someties gliches in sprites when footballplayer runs (he has another opponent sprite). Gliches on fire at second boss (at moments part of fire is missing) Fire's sound is missing when second boss is out of screen In bike level - sometimes when you shots and opponent trow grenade u can't shoot for fev seconds Graphics gliches at grenade explosion. Time after bike round has bad counting - in second level u have doubled one, etc. When you get extra life after bonus round - music crash. Sometimes power icon dissapear to fast (it show, and dissapear in next second). My suggestions - I haven't time to check this on my arcade board: Time run to fast, Difficullt should be changed after finishing all levels (12 rounds), not after each round (I remember plays on this game - 3rd or 4th ending was no problem - but in mame it's impossible), In bike level (bonus), when opponents kill you, still u have time record - I think it's wrong and Sound has many gliches. kncljoe0101u2yel BlackTiger

- When playing (after bicycles) game hasn't ... music. It's olny punch & kicks sounds. In oryginal arcade is music on gameplay. sjyune update: I know this problem is already reported but just to confirm, this morning went to local Arcade and checked ....and "YES" indeed the game has nice music during game play.. so this is definitely a MAME bug....(also not mentioned in source). From R.Belmont in 0.106u5: needs a recording (preferably video+audio) of the start of a game on the real PCB. The main program does not send any unhandled commands to the sound system, so this would be a very unusual bug. kncljoe0101u5gre BlackTiger / sjyune


- 0.72u2: Acho A. Tang changed Z80 CPU1 clock speed to 5.5MHz and fixed the following problems: You can't play anymore after you die(clock speed too low, check XTAL), scrolling in bike levels(scroll register overflow), sprites disappearing at left screen edge(bad clipping) and artifacts in stage 3 and others(clear sprite mem at bank switch?).

- 0.60: Added clone Bone Crusher.

- 2nd April 2002: Smitdogg Jones added a bootleg of Knuckle Joe called Bone Crusher.

- 0.59: Fixed dipswitches and Z80 CPU1 clock speed to 6MHz - game works now.

- 0.37b8: Changed VSync to 60Hz.

- 0.37b7: Ernesto Corvi added Knuckle Joe (set 1) (Seibu Kaihatsu 1985 (Taito license)) and clone (set 2). TODO: Lots of unknown dipswitches.

- 25th May 2000: Phil Stroffolino fixed a lot of bugs in Knuckle Joe, but colors are still wrong and there is no sound.

- 20th May 2000: Ernesto Corvi sent in a preliminary Knuckle Joe driver - sprites are garbled and there is no sound.
