0.29 [Nicola Salmoria]

Possible Bugs:

- I noticed hair colour on the ID card on the top monitor doesn't match the ones on the playing area. I then looked at the Super punch out flyers in which the main character infact has the same hair colour of the ID card. I think this bug has to be verified on a real pcb even if the screenshots of the flyer are taken from the pcb. punchout0107u3gre Kold666


- 0.106u8: Aaron Giles converted the Punch Out driver to a proper dualscreen game (2x 256x224). Rewrote the video portion to use tilemaps.

- 0.58: Full VLM5030 sound emulation. Samples are no longer needed.

- 22nd January 2002: Tatsuyuki Satoh fixed the noise generator in the VLM5030 sound chip emulation, completely removing the need for samples.

- 21st January 2002: Tatsuyuki Satoh submitted a new, much improved version of the VLM5030 sound chip emulation, used for speech in (Super) Punch-Out and a few other drivers. It is now more than 90% accurate to the original, and only a few small problems remain.

- 17th November 2000: Gerardo Oporto fixed dipswitches in Punchout.

- 0.37b5: Nicola Salmoria added new graphic primitive copyrozbitmap(). This replaces copybitmapzoom() which was a special case. A side effect is that, thanks to the better precision, the boxer on the Punch Out hall of fame looks much better.

- 0.36b13: Replaced NES and DAC sound with Nintendo. Changed clock speed of the N2A03 to 1789772 Hz.

- 26th December 1999: and Matthew Conte contributed a new NES sound driver for Punch Out and Donkey Kong 3, and also some fixes to SNK games sound.

- 0.36b5: Replaced the M6502 CPU with a N2A03.

- 0.33b6: Tatuyuki Satoh fixed bug in VLM5030 emulator which caused samples not to work.

- 0.33b3: Tatsuyuki Satoh updated the VLM5030 emulation (Punch Out etc.). Since quality is still bad, the emulator is only used when samples are not available.

- 0.31: Nicola Salmoria did a first attempt at sound in Donkey Kong 3 / Punch Out. These two Nintendo games use the same sound hardware as the NES console.

- 0.29: Nicola Salmoria added a preliminary driver for Punch Out (Nintendo 1984).
