0.37b12 [Phil Stroffolino]


NOTES:

- Dynamic Ski runs on a single Z80. It has the same graphics format as the mewer Taiyo games. The game has some minor priority glitches.

- Chinese Hero hardware differs only slightly from Shanghai Kid: sprites have 3 bitplanes instead of 2, videoram attributes for the tilemap don't include xflip and no protection.

- shangkid/hiryuken: The BBX coprocessor is burried in an epoxy block (1.5" by 2" by 4" black). The block is connected to the PCB by a 40 pin DIP socket labeled IC30. It contains: a surface-mounted Z80 (TMPZ84C00P), LS245 logic IC and battery backed ram chip Fujitsu MB8464. The BBX coprocessor receives graphics and sound-related commands from the main CPU via shared RAM. It directly manages an AY8910, is responsible for populating spriteram, and forwards appropriate sound commands to the sample-playing CPU.


WIP:

- 24th January 2001: Phil Stroffolino added Chinese Hero to the preliminary Shanghai Kid driver, but unlike Shanghai Kid, it doesn't have protection so it works perfectly.
