Puzzle Star (ver. 100MG)

0.84u5 [David Haywood]


- 0.105u3: XingXing simulated the protection in Puzzle Star - Game now playable.

- 22nd April 2004: David Haywood - ElSemi passed along some code to me from a contributor in China known as 'XingXing'. The code was to simulate the protection in the PGM game 'Puzzle Star', another one of the Mysterious PGM games which never appeared on the IGS site when most of the other titles were up. It's a puzzle game, very similar to Mang-Chi which was emulated a few days ago but with some extra twists (involving the stars, combos, and 'promotions'). There may be one or two problems with the simulation, but for the most part it seems to work correctly.

- 25th July 2004: David Haywood added Puzzle Star to the PGM driver but it also does not work because of protection.

- 30th July 2004: A Puzzle Star PGM cart arrived, purchased by Randy on EBay. I've dumped it, but it will require trojaning to get the emulation working. We're working on it.
