Namco Classic Collection Vol.1

0.37b16 [Mark McDougall]


- Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 contains Mappy, Xevious and Galaga.


- 0.104u4: Adam Bousley added save states to Namco Classics Collection Vol.1

- 0.99u10: R. Belmont fixed missing sound in Namco Classics games.

- 5th August 2005: R. Belmont - Got a nice present today from a coder who goes by cync: a set of major bugfixes to the H8/3002 CPU core. As you know, this is the "sub-CPU" in many later Namco games. So what do the fixes do? They correct most of what was wrong with the sound and music in all of the ND-1 (NCV1/NCV2) and System 12 games. All the games involved now sound way better, and of course I've already backported the fixes to ZiNc so the music's better there too.

- 0.96u2: Swapped left/right sound channels.

- 0.86u3: Added H8/3002 (16384000 Hz) CPU2 and C352 stereo sound.

- 2nd September 2004: R. Belmont - Fixed a bug in the H8/3002 CPU core. Got it on speaking terms with the 68000 on the Namco ND-1 hardware. Result: Namco Classics Collection volumes 1 and 2 are both fully playable with full sound and music.

- 29th June 2004: R. Belmont - Started cleaning up ZiNc's H8/3002 core for MAME submission (this will add sound and fix protection on Namco Classics 1 & 2 and the System 12 games*). Fixed some flag calculations on the ADD opcodes and some "edge cases" on the C352 to improve music in NCV1/2. Still need to fix some issues with the controls in Aqua Rush and Paca Paca.

- 0.70u5: Guru improved ncv1 filenames.

- 0.53: Changed visible area to 224x288 and added 2MB sound1 rom fake.

- 0.37b16: Added Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 and clones Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 (Japan set 1) and Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 (Japan set 2).

- 8th June 2001: Mark McDougall sent in his Namco Classics Collection Vol.1 driver, which lacks some graphical effects and sound.
