    Submission MessageNot one of Capcom's finest and surely a lawsuit in waiting from the makers of Wonderboy in Monster Land but it's pretty fun in short bursts. This score could be improved on to be honest with a bit of extra care and concentration.

    I also documented the attempt over here as an attempt to put some context round it. http://sull.co.uk/?p=966

    A bit of extra content and I find that by writing about these attempts, whether or not I'll get anywhere near the record or not, does kinda force me to dig deeper into the games somewhat.

    - Once upon a time a horrible monster came without warning upon an unsuspecting land and decimated everything in its path. The paradise land of Alurea was hit hard. It's people, having known peace for 1000 years, had forgotten the savagery of battle and the land was destroyed. Only the King's twin infant sons survived. Fifteen years later... The elder of the twins, the successor to the throne of Alurea, is preparing to set out on a quest for a legendary stone called "Dragon Blue Eyes". Legend says that if ever the kingdom is in trouble, "The Dragon Blue Eyes" will set all things right. The younger of the twins, brought up by Princess Nana, wishes to join his brother and take revenge for their parents' death.

Removed the notes about LW-13.10D ROM in forgottnu and RT_23.13B ROM in wonder3, since current dumps are confirmed as good. Fixed qad labels and confirmed PCB infos.
    
    - 0.144u7: Aaron Giles fixed U.N. Squadron and other CPS1 games with OOB tiles and strange behavior while single frame stepping.

    - 0.139u2: CPS-1 update [Team CPS-1]: Minor cleanups and fixes.
    
    - 18th August 2010: Smitdogg - The box of Capcom goodies arrived today from Japan. They are Japanese versions of Knights of the Round, Willow, and King of Dragons. In Willow's case we got it to correct the current set using incorrect roms. But for the other 2, yet again, the program rom labels indicated new versions we don't have dumped and so far look to be matching currently dumped sets, or at least doing some mixmatching with program roms and different sizes on graphics roms. I'm not really sure yet to be honest, they aren't fully dumped yet. You'll see why when you see how many roms they use. I'll finish dumping them all tomorrow.
    
    - 10th August 2010: Smitdogg - We won the Capcom games that I was raising money for a few days ago. They should arrive in about a week. There is other oldschool Capcom news on the way as well.
    
    - 0.139u1: CPS-1 update [Team CPS-1]: Expanded and updated games table in video\cps1.c. Confirmed B-Board # for 3wondersu and varth. Fixed labels in ghouls, ghoulsu to match real PCBs. Removed 14.bin in dynwarj, it was a bad dump. Marked nm_23.12b in nemoj BAD_DUMP. Removed knightsj set (roms were split & hacked to work on a suicided board). Added roms relationship between parent/clones where missing. Fixed some incorrect notes added in previous update. Reordered some sets. Minor cleanups. Fixed sf2ceua labels and added PCB infos. Fixed sf2ceub labels and added PCB infos, removed 1 incorrect rom and replaced with proper redump done by Dumping Union. Fixed punisher and punisheru Q-Sound labels and added D-Board PALs. Brian Troha set correct B-Board mapper for "resale" kits. This fixes missing graphics in Area 88 (Japan Resale). Documentation update for some CPS1 sets (B-Board chip information) verified via Team Japump PCB photos [Brian Troha].
    
    -  1st August 2010: Smitdogg - Team Japump are dumping/fixing some CPS1 revisions. I got our bids in for the other needed Capcom revisions.
    
    - 0.139: CPS-1 update [Team CPS-1]: Added missing PALs as reference to most of remaining sets. Dumped and added TK24B1.1A to Dynasty Wars [Corrado Tomaselli]. Fixed LW-13.10D rom loading in Forgotten Worlds to match real PCB. Identified, verified and documented a ton of PCBs, adding/fixing missing/wrong infos as ROMs labels and positions, B-Board, C-Board and CPSB IDs and PALs [Stefan Lindberg, dlfrsilver, MKL]. Reordered all sets per release date in cps1.c and video\cps1.c. Updated games table in video\cps1.c and added some notes on PALs table. Minor cleanups.
    
    - 0.136u1: Fabio Priuli fixed NVRAM for dino, punisher, wof and clones.
    
    - 0.135u4: Fabio Priuli added driver data struct and save states to CPS1 driver.
    
    - 0.133u3: Corrado Tomaselli verified and added correct xtals values for CPS1 boards. Added correct xtal and divisor for OKI6295 taken from Forgotten Worlds schematics.
    
    - 0.129u4: Nicola Salmoria fixed a contact MAMEDEV messasfbonus.cge in the CPS1 driver.
    
    - 0.128u4: Updated CPS1 documentation [Nicola Salmoria].
    
    - 0.127u1: Additional input port cleanups in the CPS1 driver [Fabio Priuli].
    
    - 0.127: Nicola Salmoria updated CPS1 to use proper gfx ROMs (+ PALs) for Varth (Japan 920714), and to load correct A-Board PALs for QSound games.
    
    - 0.126u5: Corrado Tomaselli and Charles MacDonald added reverse engineered PLD images to CPS1 games (A-board to all and B-board and C-board to many).
    
    - 0.126u4: Corrado Tomaselli verified and corrected CPS1 refresh rate. Changed VSync to 59.610000 Hz.
    
    - 0.125u6: Corrado Tomaselli changed all games after Street Fighter 2 CE to have a 12MHz clock. Verified on Mega Man and Quiz & Dragons (original kits with plastic case). I am resonably sure all the other games after ST2CE have the DASH CPS1 board with 12MHz clock.
    
    - 0.125u3: David Haywood fixed duplicate input port bits in CPS1 driver.
    
    - 0.124u5: Massive update to ROM naming in the CPS1 driver, also loading smaller EPROMs for Japanese sets instead of the larger mask ROMs where possible. Added information about B-Board revisions where possible. There is still work to do on this regard but this is a first step in untangling the mess [Nicola Salmoria]. Nicola Salmoria and Corrado Tomaselli verified more CPS1 gfx ROM mappings against PALs. Fixed rom names in all games.
    
    - 0.124u4: Further CPS1 improvements [Nicola Salmoria, Corrado Tomaselli, Charles MacDonald]: Fixed layer enable at the end of stage 4 in Varth. Increased Varth CPU clock to 12MHz to reduce slowdowns (the game was released after sf2ce so the faster A-board was available). Verified more gfx rom mappings against PAL dumps (thanks to Corrado). Verified memory maps using A-board PAL dumps (thanks to Charles). Separated the address ranges for CPS-A and CPS-B customs. This finally clarifies why some registers are fixed and some change with every game. Identified three new unknown registers in the CPS-B-21 custom. Their purpose is unknown. All unhandled accesses to CPS-A/CPS-B registers will now be reported. There shouldn't be any left. Look out for "contact MAMEDEV" popups. Cleaned memory maps. Moved Forgotten Worlds special input memory handlers to DRIVER_INIT. Moved extra input handlers to video\cps1.c since the extra connectors are on the C-board. Added sound to Final Crash. Lowered SF2 clock speed to 10MHz. This is on the assumption that, since the 12MHz A-Board is called "89626A-4 DASH", it should have started to be used with SF2 DASH--that is, sf2ce.
    
    - 0.124u3: Nicola Salmoria and Corrado Tomaselli fixed CPS1 palette control register to match tests on Magic Sword PCB. Nicola Salmoria verified several CPS1 graphics ROM mappings against PAL dumps. Nicola Salmoria merged CPS1, CPS2 memory maps and some tweaks from schematics, though to get perfect memory maps dumps of the A-board PALs would be needed.
    
    - 0.124u2: Verified some CPS-1 GFX rom mapping tables against PAL dumps. Improved understanding and emulation of palette related registers [Nicola Salmoria, Corrado Tomaselli]. Nicola Salmoria removed CPS1 tile kludges and replaced with per-game ROM mapping tables. Ideally, the ROM mapping should be derived from mapping of the PALs found on the B board. Note that this is a significant change and some new bugs might be caused by it. Unlike previous bugs, where extra garbage tiles would appear in the games, the new bugs would be tiles or sprites MISSING--so they will be harder to notice. This would happen because in some cases the 16x16 regions of the gfx ROMs can be used by both scroll2 and sprites, while in other cases they must be separated.
    
    - 0.124u1: Nicola Salmoria fixed CPS1 background color. This fixes 3wonders (game start) and mtwins (explosion during attract). It seems to break Varth, however and has dubious effects on the boot sscreens of avsp, sfa3 and possibly other CPS2 games. Changed palettesize to 3072 colors.
    
    - 0.122u8: David Haywood fixed the CPS driver to at least display the correct clock in the driver info, by degrading the clock through alternate means.
    
    - 0.121: Vas Crabb updated the DIP locations for all games in the CPS-1 driver.
    
    - 0.114u2: Couriersud fixed crash if you attempt to view graphics page 4.
    
    - 0.114: Aaron Giles fixed MAME crashed if you do a hardware reset in CPS-1.
    
    - 0.112u3: MAME Italia forum connected brightness support on the CPS1 board (not just CPS2) after verifying that the real board does support it.
    
    - 0.109: Input port cleanup and additional comments in the CPS1 driver [Stephane Humbert].
    
    - 0.105u1: David Haywood updated CPS-1 driver to more accurately draw tilemaps, based on evidence from a board with mixed ROMs.
    
    -  5th April 2006: David Haywood - A guy called Murray posted on the MAME.net and neo-geo.com forums about a problem he was having with his Final Fight PCB. The problem looked like it might be due to a mix of Japanese and US roms as the Japanese roms don't contain a full Winners Don't Use Drugs Logo. He got a friend to dump the socketed roms on the PCB and sure enough the socketed graphic roms matched the Japanese set in MAME. This set, being a newer US revision was then plugged into MAME (ffightua in .105) but there was something wrong. MAME displayed the Winners Don't Use Drugs screen perfectly with this mixed set of roms. At this point I wondered if maybe one or both of his Mask Roms were also from a Japanese revision so I loaded the US set with an entire set of Japanese GFX. The logo was broken, but not in the same way as the PCB. For a while this was rather confusing, it must be getting the Japanese characters from somewhere, but the only place they exist are in the Japanese roms, and it would appear the text layer graphics aren't used in them when running the US set. No matter what I tried to change in terms of the roms I couldn't reproduce the exact problem shown. Then I remembered, MAME had some code to force the 8x8 text layer characters to always be drawn from the Left Hand Side of each 16x16 tile (apparently for Carrier Air Wing...) but the left and right sides of almost every 16x16 character used for the 8x8 layer were identical. The screenshot made it quite obvious that the real hardware does not always draw the left hand side of the tile, but instead alternates from left side to right side for every column on the display. By implementing this behavior in MAME I was able to reproduce the same glitch shown on the real PCB when mixed roms are used. I suspect the problem with Carrier Air Wing which resulted in the left hand side always being used is another problem, the CPS video hardware is full of strange little hacks for the early CPS games anyway. The change will hopefully be in 105u1, I can't see anything broken by it, but some testing would be helpful.
