namcos11.c

0.71 [smf, Ryan Holtz]


TODO:

- The C76 internal rom is not dumped, we use the sound program from Prop Cycle and patch the inputs.

- Random draw list corruption in soul edge v2 & dunkmania.

- Soul edge, dunk mania & prime goal ex try to access joypads/memory cards. It is unknown what they would do if they found one.


NOTES:

- Driver: smf & Ryan Holtz with help from R. Belmont and The Zinc Team and board notes are from Guru.

- Not Dumped Boards: Don Bear Near (Namco 1996), Point Blank 3 (Namco 2001), Soul Edge Ver. III (Namco 1996), Tekken Ver.C (Namco 1995) and Tekken II Ver.C (Namco 1995). If you can help with the remaining undumped S11 games, please contact http://www.mameworld.net/gurudumps/comments.html


WIP:

- 0.111u5: Nathan Woods updated the PSX GPU video driver to use the new BITMAP_ADDR* macros instead of using the line[] array.

- 0.105u2: Nathan Woods fixed the 'Fatal error: Invalid data type' crash in namcos11 driver.

- 0.104u2: Changed CPU2 from M37710 to M37702 (16384000 Hz).

- 0.103u2: Fixed some Endian issues in the Namco drivers [R. Belmont].

- 0.100: R. Belmont fully shared the sound part of the MCU RAM for System 11. This allows games to read back the song names and fixes the sound test menu in Tekken and Tekken 2.

- 0.99u10: R. Belmont fixed incorrect voices and swapped stereo in System 11/12 games.

- 0.99u9: Major Namco sound improvements [R. Belmont]: Added emulated sound and music to all NB-1, NB-2 and System 11 games, using Prop Cycle's MCU BIOS (pr1data.8k) as a substitute until the original can be trojaned or otherwise obtained. Hooked it up for plain System 22 games as well, but they're not interested in passing down proper commands for some reason. Speed-cheated all instances of the M37710/C352 sound system so CPU requirements don't go up much. This also helped back off the requirements a hair for Prop Cycle and Time Crisis. C352 now sets output pitch correctly by input clock. Added M37710 (16384000 Hz) and C352 (16384000 Hz) stereo sound.

- 8th November 2003: smf did some more cleanup on the Namco System 11 driver.

- 1st November 2003: smf did some changes to the GPU DMA in the Namco System 11 driver and added some Namco System 12 ROMs, but they don't work at all yet.

- 23rd October 2003: smf sent in a small update to the Namco System 11 driver cleaning up things.

- 22nd October 2003: smf sent in another update to the Namco System 11 driver, improving the MDEC decoding and enabling Soul Edge (Ver. A) since it seems to work fine.

- 23rd July 2003: Brian A. Troha fixed some ROM names in the Namco System 11 driver.

- 0.71u1: smf cleaned up and fixed filenames in Namco System 11 driver.

- 5th July 2003: smf cleaned up the Namco System 11 driver and updated the documentation in it.
