Virtua Racing

0.81u1 [Olivier Galibert]


- This early polygon game was based on System 32, with a NEC v60 RISC processor and FPU 32bits 16M flops coprocessor. Sound was based on a MC68000 10 MHz and unknown sound chip.


- 0.114: Ernesto Corvi updated Virtua Racing to use the TGP core, based on guessing from the Daytona TGP code - Game now playable. Added MB86233 (16MHz) CPU3 and the 8k TGP rom (vr-tgp.bin). This is the Daytona TGP program with some modifications needed for Virtua Racing, the real TGP program is an internal ROM and still needs dumping.

- 0.107u3: Olivier Galibert fixed track lookup implementation in Virtua Racing, bringing the game much closer to playable.

- 0.88: Added clone Virtua Formula - same issues as VR.

- 0.86: Olivier Galibert and Andrew Gardner improve Virtua Racing.

- 0.85u2: Added 4x missing user2 roms.

- 30th July 2004: Guru - Hooked-up and got running the Virtua Racing PCB's sent to me a few months back (see news 27th April 2004). While documenting these PCB's I realised there were 4 missing ROMs in the current dump, which I've now dumped. So hopefully that will solve the problems relating to the incomplete emulation of the road.

- 27th April 2004: Guru - Received a huge pile of Model 1 boards including several Virtua Racing PCBs and a Virtua Fighter PCB from Justin Dawkins.

- 0.81u6: R. Belmont added full sound and music to the Model 1 driver. Changed sound1 rom ($200000) to sound2. Added 68000 (12MHz) CPU2, YM3438 (8MHz) and 2x Sega_315-5560 MultiPCM stereo sound.

- 2nd April 2004: Olivier Galibert submitted a very preliminary Sega Model 1 driver that supports Virtua Racing, Virtua Fighter, Star Wars Arcade and Wing War, though none of them are playable, none of them have sound emulation and they still have major graphics glitches.
