Racing Jam

0.86 [Ville Linde]


- 0.110u3: Added RF5C400 stereo sound.

- 0.97u2: Changed user3 roms ($800000 + c00000) to user5.

- 0.97u1: Added 68000 (16MHz) CPU2, ADSP21062 (36MHz) CPU3 and dipswitches. Swapped user2 roms.

- 5th June 2005: Ville Linde - I decided to have a look at what's wrong with Racing Jam: Chapter 2 as it was the last of the Konami PowerPC games not to boot yet. There was a small problem related to ROM loading, and now the game boots just fine. The test mode hangs on network board test (not emulated yet). Without running test mode, the game starts to boot normally (with the fixed backup RAM), but ends just spinning there, without showing anything. Turns out that Konami Hornet and NWK-TR games require some preformatted data in their backup RAMs (probably as a protective measure). So far I've managed to find the correct values for Gradius 4, Silent Scope, Racing Jam and Racing Jam 2, leaving Silent Scope 2 and Thrill Drive to be done. Silent Scope and Racing Jam start to boot but end up spinning much like Racing Jam 2.

- 0.86: Added Racing Jam and clone Racing Jam: Chapter 2.

- 11th July 2004: Ville Linde - Hornet games hit a deadend, so I quickly moved on to NWK-TR games with some success. Racing Jam and Thrill Drive hang to some IC tests, much like the Hornet games.
