0.36RC1 [?]

0.36b11 [Aaron Giles, Ernesto Corvi, Juergen Buchmueller]

0.36b6 [?]


- 0.112u2: Replaced 3x DAC with Discrete sound.

- 0.112u1: Replaced implementation of Namco 54xx sound chip with new MB8844 CPU core running the original embedded ROM code. Removed old sound core. Pole Position and Bosconian no longer require samples as a result [Nicola Salmora, Ernesto Corvi, Guru]. Added MB88xx (256000 Hz) CPU4 with 1k rom and replaced Namco 54XX with 3x DAC sound.

- 0.97u1: Mamesick removed LO/HI gearshift display in Pole Position II (only enabled in a debug build).

- 0.89u5: Jarek Burczynski improved the Namco 54XX Noise Generator (Type A and B emulated, type C algo still unknown). Removed pp2_17.wav sample.

- 0.79u1: Nicola Salmoria fixed the polepos2 title screen which had been broken since day 1, strange that nobody noticed. He also fixed various mistakes in the polepos ROM loading (polepos2 was using the wrong engine sound ROMs - it's turbo!) and removed various bad dumps from polepos2b and poleps2c, they turned out to be the same version so poleps2c is removed. Changed clock speed of the Z80 and the 2x Z8002 CPUs to 3072000 Hz and added Namco 52XX and Namco 54XX sound.

- 0.37b12: Changed VSync to 60.606060Hz.

- 0.36RC1: Added Pole Position II (Namco) and clone (Atari). Renamed (polepos2) to (poleps2b) and (poleps2a) to (poleps2c).

- 24th February 2000: Aaron Giles added the Japan romset of Pole Position 2.

- 0.36b12: Added 'Speed' dipswitch.

- 18th December 1999: Aaron Giles fixed Pole Position II dipswitches.

- 0.36b11: Added Pole Position II (set 1) (Namco 1983 (Atari license)) and clone (set 2).

- 22nd November 1999: Aaron Giles, Ernesto Corvi and Juergen Buchmueller have submitted a fully working Pole Position 1 / 2 driver, it only lacks explosion and screeching tires samples.

- 0.36b6: Added Pole Position II (bootleg) (Testdriver).
