Super World Court (World)

0.103 [Stefan Lindberg]

0.37b14 [Phil Stroffolino]


WIP:

- 5th January 2006: R. Belmont - I now have Super World Court running mostly happily with the real MCU emulation, including inputs, coinage, and emulated sound and music. Once the remaining issues have settled out (sample addressing in the music is weird). I'll hit the other NA-1 games and submit.

- 2nd January 2006: Charles MacDonald - I've been running tests on the Namco NA-1 hardware over the last few days, and figured out how to dump the internal ROM of the M37702 MCU used in Super World Court. The BIOS has a function where code can be copied from the 68000 side over to MCU RAM and executed, making it quite insecure. I wrote a program that copies a portion of the M37702 memory to shared RAM, and the 68000 can change and run the program in a loop to read any part of the MCU address space. I think the same technique will work for other NA-1 games; at least what I've seen in MAME is that a number of them also upload code fragments for the MCU to use. For other types of Namco hardware that use the M37702, it's highly dependant on what services the MCU makes available. Also, now that the BIOS can be examined and user code can be executed on the MCU side for testing, maybe the NA-1 sound hardware (integrated in the multiple purpose 219 chip) will get figured out. Though the existing simulation of the NA-1 sound hardware is remarkably good.

- 0.103: Stefan Lindberg added Super World Court (World). Renamed (swcourt) to (swcourtj).

- 24th December 2005: Dumping Project - We grabbed Super World Court (English version).

- 16th September 2000: Phil Stroffolino sent in an improved Namco NA-1/2 driver, adding support for Exbania, Nettou! Gekitou! Quiztou!!, Super World Court, F/A (Cosmo Gang the Puzzle, Tinkle Pit and Emeraldia were added back in June).
