Tapper (Budweiser)

0.28 [Christopher Kirmse, Aaron Giles, Nicola Salmoria]


- Graphic glitches at top of play screen. tapper0102gre1 Haze / Old Wolf

- The sound is missing when the thief bangs on the table to mix up the cans during the bonus round - additionally, overall sound is a little "laggy" and "garbled" at times throughout game. It seems the sound isn't entirely missing but muted. This first occurred in version 0.98u1. tapper0102gre2 Old Wolf / BSR

- I noticed another issue where in the first round, 2 of the patrons will have bloodshot eyes. When they drink the beer, the froth will turn to the same color. This first occurred in version 0.98u1, as well. tapper0102gre3 BSR


- 0.85u3: B.S. Ruggeri fixed sound board error in Tapper. Added 'Demo Sounds', 'Cabinet' and 'Coin Meters' dipswitches.

- 0.53: Changed palettesize from 128 to 64 colors.

- 30th December 1999: Aaron Giles fixed some compilation bugs and removed a minor Z80-related kludge from Tapper and Timber.

- 0.36b6: Aaron Giles added clone Tapper (alternate).

- 12th February 1999: Juergen Buchmueller has made the ASM Z80 core even better. Speed improvements range from 25% (Galaga) to 45% (Tapper). It's still far from complete, and daisy-chaining doesn't work.

- 0.35b2: Juergen Buchmueller REALLY fixed this time the hang in Tapper.

- 0.34: Juergen Buchmueller fixed bug in the Z80 emulator which caused crashes in Tapper and Tron.

- 0.33b7: Aaron Giles fixed hangs in Tapper, and hopefully other MCR games as well.

- 0.31: Paul Sommers and Ruben Panossian added Tapper (Suntory). Changed description of 'Root Beer Tapper' to 'Tapper (Root Beer)' and Tapper to 'Tapper (Budweiser)'.

- 0.30: Brad Oliver added clone 'Root Beer Tapper' (Bally Midway 1984).

- 0.28: Added Tapper (Bally Midway 1983). Press F2 before initial screen to configure. Aaron Giles added a new function to dynamically modify the palette. Many games use this feature like Tapper.
