0.36b1 [Andrew Prime]

0.34b4 [Phil Stroffolino]


* Wanted: 317-0086/0088 FD1094 CPUs

* Wanted: 317-0098 8751 MCU


- 28th July 2006: Guru - Sega System 16 Monster Lair with 317-0085 CPU and other games just arrived in 2 huge boxes. I think most of these are just for fixing issues in MAME (snd/gfx etc). Big thanks to Tingoes.

- 0.94u4: Chack'n added clone Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (set 4, Japan, System 16B, FD1094 317-0087).

- 0.92: Renamed (wb3b) to (wb3), (wb3a) to (wb31), (wb3ba) to (wb33), (wb3bb) to (wb32) and (wb3bbl) to (wb3bbl).

- 0.89u2: Added I8751 (8MHz) MCU, mcu fake rom and uPD7759 sound to Wonder Boy III (8751).

- 0.89u1: Added 'Difficulty' and 'Test Mode' dipswitch.

- 0.88u7: Fixed gfx2 roms order and addresses.

- 0.88u4: Chris Hardy added clone Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (System 16A, 317-0084). Renamed (wb3) to (wb3b) and clones (wb3a) to (wb3ba), (wb3b) to (wb3bb) and (wb3bl) to (wb3bbl).

- 0.88u3: Added new 317-0085 and 317-0089 key.

- 26th October 2004: MASH - Fixed Wonder Boy III (set2 and 3) sound.

- 0.88: Charles MacDonald and Nicola Salmoria added clone Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (set 3, 317-0085).

- 9th October 2004: Charles MacDonald - Here's Wonderboy III - Monster Lair (System 16B, 317-0085) decrypted and running. Thanks to Thierry (aka ShinobiZ) for donating the Wonderboy III CPU and ROM board. This version of the game runs on the original type of ROM board. It has a warning screen and a simpler test mode, so perhaps this is the older version of the two. I think now all varities of this game have been accounted for.

- 5th October 2004: Charles MacDonald - Here's Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (System 16B, 317-0089) decrypted and running. Thanks to Dave Widel for donating the FD1094 used by this game. Apart from some priority errors in the emulator it runs fine. Sprite banking is implemented in an odd way, I'll be getting a WB3 ROM board to soon to verify.

- 0.72u1: Fixed sound.

- 0.36b2: Andrew Prime added clone Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (set 2).

- 0.36b1: Andrew Prime added Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (Sega / Westone 1988).

- 0.35b13: Changed description to 'Wonder Boy III - Monster Lair (bootleg)'.

- 0.34b4: Phil Stroffolino added Wonder Boy Monster Lair (bootleg) (1988).
