Twin Cobra (World)

0.34b1 [Quench]

0.31 [Nicola Salmoria]


- twincobr and clone ktiger: At end of the level, the helicopter sometimes doesn't land on the pad. This is an original work. If you die near the end of a level then that will trigger it to skip the landing (sometimes?/always?). If you don't die at all in the level then you'll always land. Twisty


- 0.80: Quench converted Twin Cobra and Wardner to tilemaps, corrected savestate setup, little cleanups to the machine code and adjustments for TMS32010 internal data map. Changed TMS32010 clock speed to 3.5MHz.

- 0.78u2: Fixed cpu3 rom address to $0.

- 5th February 2003: Guru - Kyukyoku Tiger (Taito 1987) arrived from Taucher for trojanizing the MCU.

- 0.61: Changed VSync to 54.877857Hz.

- 30th June 2002: Quench fixed a few things in the Twin Cobra driver.

- 0.37b6: Fixed cpu3 rom loading.

- 0.36b11: Added cpu3 DSP roms and 5x proms (sprite priority/control/attribute).

- 16th March 1999: Quench fixed Twin Cobra from crashing.

- 0.35b3: Quench emulated the protection (TMS32010) in Twin Cobra, which is now fully playable. Added TMS32010 (3.5 MHz) and changed VSync to 56 Hz.

- 8th February 1999: Quench fixed clone KyuKyoku Tiger.

- 0.34b1: Quench added Twin Cobra (Taito) (preliminary) and clones Twin Cobra (Romstar) and Kyukyoku Tiger. Issues: Most enemies appear already destroyed. This is probably caused by the incomplete emulation of the protection microcontroller. Kyukyoku Tiger doesn't boot.

- 0.31: Nicola Salmoria added Twin Cobra (Taito 1987) (Testdriver).
