mcr3.c

0.28 [Christopher Kirmse, Aaron Giles, Brad Oliver, Lawnmower Man]


TODO:

- Spy Hunter crashes at the end of the boat level.

- Sprite placement on the scrolling games seems a bit off.


NOTES:

- Turbo Tag kludge: The checksum on the ttprog1.bin ROM seems to be bad by 1 bit. The checksum should come out to $82 but it should be $92. Unfortunately, the game refuses to start if any bad ROM is found; to work around this, MAME modify the checksum byte.


WIP:

- 0.101u1: Aaron Giles added save state support to games in the mcr3.c and mcr68.c drivers, marking them as GAME_SUPPORTS_SAVE.

- 0.99u2: Aaron Giles fixed input.

- 0.98u4: Aaron Giles consolidated the MCR 1/2/3 drivers and documented all the PCBs.

- 0.98u2: Aaron Giles partial rewrote the MCR video system. Should still work roughly the same, just a little different under the covers. This is still very much a work in progress.

- 0.98u1: Aaron Giles did some major cleanup on the MCR drivers: Implemented Super Sound I/O interrupts properly, filled out all memory maps according to schematics, fixed sound sync with various sound boards, allowing for kludges to be removed from Power Drive and Star Guards, re-verified all connections from wiring diagrams and documented various lamp and driver boards from the games.

- 0.60: Added prom ($0 - from shollow) to all games.

- 18th November 2000: Aaron Giles updated the MCR drivers' video routines to use pixel plotting functions instead of direct bitmap drawing.

- 0.36RC2: Aaron Giles fixed volume control in the MCR games.

- 30th December 1999: Aaron Giles fixed some compilation bugs and removed a minor Z80-related kludge from Tapper and Timber.

- 29th September 1999: Aaron Giles sent in an MCR update with a working Zwackery driver.

- 23rd September 1999: Aaron Giles sent in an MCR update with support for Power Drive, Turbo Tag, Spy Hunter 2, Blasted, Arch Rivals, Tri-Sports and Pigskin 621AD and also tons of cleanup.

- 0.33b7: Aaron Giles fixed hangs in Tapper, and hopefully other MCR games as well.

- 0.28: Added mcr3.c driver. Christopher Kirmse, Aaron Giles and Brad Oliver provided a MCR I/II/III driver, supporting: Kick, Solar Fox, Tron, Two Tigers, Domino Man, Satan's Hollow, Wacko, Kozmik Kroozr, Journey, Tapper, Discs of Tron, Demolition Derby, Timber, Spy Hunter and Rampage.
