    0.18 [Nicola Salmoria]
    
    
    Artwork available
    
    
    WIP:
    
    - 0.182: Replaced M68705 CPU3 with MC68705P3.
    
    - 0.178: caius and The Dumping Union added clone Elevator Action (4 pcb version, 1.1). Cleaned up rom labels/locations for the Elevator Action sets and added notes. Noted that the 4 and 5 board sets dumped so far of Elevator Action are the exact same code and gfx, just split differently [Lord Nightmare]. Added ww15.pal16l8.ic24.jed.bin. Changed parent description to 'Elevator Action (5 pcb version, 1.1)'.
    
    - 0.170: Corrections to some rom names and labels on Elevator Action based on PCB pictures [Lord Nightmare, brizzo].
    
    - 0.148: Kevin Eshbach added partial DIP locations for Elevator Action.
    
    - 0.138: hap and MASH fixed Elevator Action (some graphics on the escalators shift when you ride on them).
    
    - 0.133u1: Renamed (elevatob) to (elevatorb).
    
    - 0.128u4: David Haywood fixed Elevator Action, which freezes after coin insert with "8".
    
    - 0.126u4: Guru added README for Elevator Action.
    
    - 0.122u6: Changed M68705 CPU3 clock speed to 3MHz.
    
    - 29th December 2007: Guru - Elevator Action... this is a strange one, the dumped matches the 'elevatob' set in MAME, but this is definitely an original PCB, so I suspect the existing dump is really from an original PCB (4-board unprotected version) and the bootleg set is the same thing exactly.
    
    - 21st December 2007: Guru - A huge box arrived today. That 19.75kg box looks mighty impressive, although I'm not sure that all of it is going to be useful. Some could be alt. versions but most don't work so I'll need to dump all of these before I can tell exactly what they are. It contains Elevator Action (Taito 1982, original SJ hardware without MCU!) and others. Thanks to Tingoes for sending these out.
    
    - 12th November 2006: Mr. Do - Elevator Action artwork has been "optimized" by Ad_Enuff; much smaller file size (up to 80%) with no loss in quality.
    
    -  3rd September 2006: Mr. Do - Ad_Enuff optimized Elevator Action bezel. File sizes are now half of what they were (with no loss in quality).
    
    - 0.96u2: Nicola Salmoria fixed several sprite priority issues in Elevator Action and the car wrapping around at the end of a level. Added sprite clipping at the sides of the screen. This was verified to happen on the real board, and it affects bullets wrapping around in Elevator Action. I'm only 99% sure that the clipping is correct this way.
    
    - 0.84u6: Changed 4-way Joystick to 8-way.
    
    - 0.61: Stephane Humbert fixed "Bonus Life" dipswitch is wrong in Elevator Action.
    
    - 22nd November 1999: Tatsuyuki Satoh fixed a cpu interleaving problem in Elevator Action.
    
    - 0.36b1: Added layer prom eb16.22.
    
    - 0.35: Added new MCU cpu3 rom (2k).
    
    - 0.35b6: Replaced M6805 CPU3 with M68705.
    
    - 0.35b3: Changed M6805 CPU3 clock speed to 1.5MHz.
    
    - 0.34b1: The original Elevator Action now works, using the 68705 MCU rom which was missing. Since there is one additional CPU to emulate, it is slower than the bootleg version [Nicola Salmoria]. Added M6805 (3MHz) CPU3.
    
    - 0.33b6: Nicola Salmoria removed the partially working protection emulation in Elevator Action, so people will hopefully understand that it doesn't work and use the bootleg instead.
    
    - 0.30: Known issues: Some sprite priority problems (people half disappearing behind doors etc).
    
    - 0.29: The hardware of the Taito games (Elevator Action, Jungle King, Wild Western, Front Line) is emulated more faithfully. Playfield priority is accurate in Jungle King, however this broke Wild Western - strange. Front Line works. Merged all the drivers into Taito driver [Nicola Salmoria].
    
    - 0.28: Mike Balfour added high score saving to Elevator Action.
    
    - 0.27: Elevator Action sound is perfect now. Elevator Action, Jungle King and Wild Western now use the same Taito video hardware driver. Known issues: The original version doesn't work consistently due to the copy protection. Use the bootleg version instead.
    
    - 0.26: Tatsuyuki Satoh fixed sound tempo speed in Elevator Action (tempo speed is 37.5Khz).
    
    - 0.25: Nicola did some fixes to Taito Games (Jungle King and Elevator Action) about background placement and coins per credit dipswitch. Plus vertical scroll support in Jungle King (used in ground shake), correct sprite priority, and no more rubbish is present during change of stage. DELETE ELEVATOB\ELEVATOB.DSW, JUNGLEK\JUNGLEK.DSW, JHUNT\JHUNT.DSW, OTHERWISE THE GAME WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY.
    
    - 0.22: Added preliminary sound support to Elevator Action. Fixed credit bugs in Elevator Action. REMEMBER TO DELETE THE PREVIOUS .DSW FILES OTHERWISE THE GAMES WON'T WORK PROPERLY! Added audio CPU roms ic70/71 and gfx roms ic4/5.
    
    - 0.21.5: Nicola Salmoria fixed colors in Elevator Action (100% correct colors).
    
    - 0.21: Fixed dipswitch DSW3 in Elevator Action. Control: Arrows = Move around, CTRL = Fire1 and ALT = Fire2. YOU'LL HAVE TO DELETE THE PREVIOUS DSW FILE IN "ELEVATOB" DIRECTORY IN ORDER TO GET IT RUN CORRECTLY.
    
    - 0.20: Nicola Salmoria fixed missing sprites when exiting from doors in Elevator Action. There are still some sprite priority bugs. Also better colors.
    
    - 0.19: Added clone Elevator Action (bootleg). The original version doesn't work because of copy protection. The graphics are almost OK now, albeit quite slow. Nicola Salmoria found how Elevator Action background works. Also updated all drivers that have a scrolling background. Known issues: Collision detect not yet implemented. Game should run on hardware similar to Jungle King. Set the dipswitches to free play to play the game. Added background graphics roms to parent.
    
    - 0.18: Nicola Salmoria added 'Elevator Action' (Taito 1983). VERY preliminary and not playable. Runs on the same hardware as Jungle King.

    - RC filter on 8910 #3
    
    
    NOTES:
    
    - Hardware: Taito SJ system
    
    
    Bugs:
    
    - frontlin, tinstar, wwestern: Should Front Line be using a positional joystick device for its aiming? john_iv (ID 02169)
    
    
    WIP:
    
    - 0.178: Added semaphore and command handshake flags to audio section in Taito SJ. This fixed no attract mode sound after first time loading in piratpet, junglek and jungleh. Added "SOUND STOP" bit emulation, which improves but does not completely fix the spurious startup sound in Time Tunnel [Angelo Salese, Lord Nightmare]. Added XTALs for various clocks based on schematics. Documented and implemented AY-3-8910 outputs being tied directly together for 3 of the 4 AY-3-8910 chips. Added proper handling of sound cpu NMI on sound command register and semaphore writes and clears. Added note about an unemulated filter effect on one of the AY chips. Some savestate and init fixes. Fixed watchdog timing per schematics, and re-enabled watchdog. Bio Attack doesn't incorrectly trigger watchdog on death anymore [Lord Nightmare].
    
    - 0.129u3: Aaron Giles fixed during the scrolling the lower part of the screen in Taito SJ becomes black before.
    
    - 0.125u5: Added includes\taitosj.h.
    
    - 0.123u2: Zsolt Vasvari simplified collision detection in Taito SJ driver.
    
    - 0.122u5: Zsolt Vasvari complete Taito SJ memory map from Nicola's ancient notes. General code clean-up.
    
    - 0.105u4: Aaron Giles fixed another Taito SJ graphics corruption bug (sprites in these games become black blocks).
    
    - 0.105u3: Aaron Giles fixed graphics corruption in the Taito SJ driver (waterski, tinstar, kikstart are playable in 0.105u2 with many vertical bars garbage on the screen).
    
    - 0.104u4: Adam Bousley added save states to the Taito SJ driver.
    
    - 0.102u4: Nicola Salmoria fixed sprite-tilemap collision detection in Taito SJ driver when the screen is flipped.
    
    - 0.102: Nicola Salmoria fixed status flag from MCU in Taito SJ games, this fixes the last digit of the score in Front Line.
    
    - 0.96u2: Several Taito SJ sprite fixes [Nicola Salmoria]: Fixed sprite priorites. This fixes several priority issues in Tin Star, Elevator Action, High Way Race and the car wrapping around in Elevator Action at the end of a level. Added sprite clipping at the sides of the screen. This was verified to happen on the real board, and it affects bullets wrapping around in Elevator Action. I'm only 99% sure that the clipping is correct this way. Fixed sprite hardware collision detection. This fixes the last round in Pirate Pete, bonuses in Alpine Ski and end of level 1 in Water Ski.
    
    - 0.96: Peter Sealy added missing RAM to the Taito SJ memory map.
    
    - 0.92: Taito SJ update [Nicola Salmoria]: Added sound CPU -> main CPU communication (fixes Tin Star hangs without need for a kludge, and makes tunes between levels correctly play until the end). Added memory map derived from schematics. Added DAC volume control (I hear little difference, even if it's used). Coin lockout (important otherwise games could accept more than 9 coins).
    
    - 0.85u1: Aaron Giles fixed input port definition errors in Taito SJ driver.
    
    - 0.69a: A number of changes to the timer system [Aaron Giles]: All the CPU scheduling has moved into cpuexec.c and been taken out of timer.c. A number of bugs relating to time tracking for suspended CPUs have been fixed. A side effect of all this is a change in the behavior of the CPU scheduling. For the most part, games are fine with this. However, there were a few exceptions: The timing of the MCU communication in the Taito SJ driver is broken. Changed M68705 CPU3 clock speed to 750000 Hz in all MCU games.
    
    - 0.69: Aaron Giles fixed interrupt being triggered on Non-Existant CPU for TaitoSJ games with no MCU.
    
    - 19th May 2003: Aaron Giles fixed a bug in the Taito SJ driver that caused problems with the new timer code.
    
    -  8th May 2002: Stephane Humbert fixed the dipswitches and inputs in the Taito SJ driver.
    
    - 26th November 1999: Zsolt Vasvari fixed the collision detection in the TaitoSJ games.
    
    - 0.36b1: Changed taito.c to taitosj.c driver. Sprite-sprite collision detection and other improvements in the Taito SJ games. This fixes Bio Attack. Wild Western is now fully playable [Zsolt Vasvari].
    
    - 0.31: Removed sndhrdw\taito.c.
    
    - 0.29: Merged elevator.c, junglek.c and wwestern.c with taito.c driver. Added machine\taito.c and sndhrdw\taito.c. Nicola Salmoria added digital audio in the Taito games. The hardware of the Taito games (Elevator Action, Jungle King, Wild Western, Front Line) is emulated more faithfully. Playfield priority is accurate in Jungle King, however this broke Wild Western - strange. Front Line works.
    
    - 0.27: Added vidhrdw\taito.c. Removed vidhrdw\elevator.c, vidhrdw\junglek.c and vidhrdw\wwestern.c.
    
    - 0.25: Added wwestern.c driver and vidhrdw\wwestern.c.
    
    - 0.22: Added sndhrdw\elevator.c.
    
    - 0.18: Added elevator.c and junglek.c driver, machine\elevator.c, vidhrdw\elevator.c, vidhrdw\junglek.c and sndhrdw\junglek.c.

    Agreed; it's high time we get this adjudicated and out of the queue. FWIW, this submission passes every analysis test with flying colors (including an INP timestamp check). In my opinion, it's an easy Yes vote.
