WIP:

- 0.97u4: Mamesick increased 68000 clock speed to 12MHz in clone Winter Bobble - otherwise the gfx and scroll break up.

- 0.97u3: Corrado Tomaselli fixed Oki frequency (7575 Hz) in clone Snow Brothers 3 to match samples pitch on the PCB for Final Tetris.

- 0.90u4: Re-added 'Snow Brothers 3 - Magical Adventure' as clone of Snow Bros.

- 0.85u2: Inigo Luja added conditional coinage to Snow Bros. This fixed the 'Region' dipswitch.

- 0.81u4: Fabrice Arzeno added clone Snow Bros. - Nick & Tom (set 4).

- 0.75: Guru merged all gfx1 roms to rom sbros-1.41 (512kb). Changed Z80 CPU2 clock speed to 6MHz and YM3812 to 3MHz and VSync to 57.5 Hz.

- 0.74: Removed 'Snow Brothers 3 - Magical Adventure'.

- 0.64: Added 'Snow Brothers 3 - Magical Adventure'.

- 9th December 2001: Quench added cocktail support and did some other minor fixes in the Snow Bros driver.

- 0.37b7: David Haywood added clone 'The Winter Bobble' (bootleg).

- 31st August 2000: Brad Oliver fixed Winter Bobble to work on Macs.

- 29th August 2000: Haze added Winter Bobble to the Snow Bros driver.

- 0.36b7: Added clone Snow Bros. - Nick & Tom (set 3).

- 0.36b2: Tatsuyuki Satoh make further improved the YM3812 emulator, especially the rhythm section (check Snow Bros!).

- 0.36b1: Tatsuyuki Satoh made a new digital YM3812/YM3526 emulator (in the DOS version, use -noym3812opl to enable it). It doesn't support the rhythm section yet, but is overall better than the old one.

- 0.35b13: Changed description to 'Snow Bros. - Nick & Tom'.

- 0.34b8: Zsolt Vasvari added Snow Bros (set 1). Renamed (snowbros) to (snowbro2). In the old version (set 2) you sometimes get a green potion that makes you invincible for a few seconds (during which you can pass through walls and destroy any enemies you touch). Looking at the GFX for this set vs snowbros and it appears that only the snowbro2 set has it.

- 0.33b6: Nicola Salmoria fixed Snow Bros hanging after level 30.

- 0.33b3: Increased music tempo in Snow Bros. Nicola Salmoria fixed a couple of palette problems with Snow Bros. It also no longer uses a 16 bit video mode, so it's faster.

- 0.31: Mike Coates added Snow Bros (Toaplan 1990).
