Namco Classic Collection Vol.2

0.74u2 [Mark McDougal]


- Namco Classics Collection Vol.2 contains Pacman, Dig Dug and Rally-X.


- 0.104u4: Adam Bousley added save states to Namco Classics Collection Vol.2

- 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.

- 0.86u4: Mark McDougall added tile flipping in NCV2.

- 0.86u3: R. Belmont fixed btst #imm, @Rn instruction - it was giving reversed results, which crashed ncv2's MCU program. 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.

- 0.74u2: Added Namco Classics Collection Vol.2 and clone (Japan).

- 25th March 2003: David Haywood fixed the incorrect graphics in Namco Classics Vol.2 but it still crashes when trying to start a game.

- 4th July 2001: Mark McDougall added Namco Classics Vol.2 to the ncv1 driver, but it doesn't quite work because of missing rotation / zoom emulation.

- 11th June 2001: Mark McDougall worked on adding Namco Classics Vol.2, but the driver isn't complete yet.

- 9th June 2001: Guru - Dumped Namco Classics Collection #2 is now dumped. Thanks to Malcor for dumping the surface-mounted ROMs.

- 19th May 2001: Guru - Received the Namco Classics #2 PCB and have sent it off to a friend to be professionally dumped.
