    - Slipstream was made in an old style car simulator cabinet (you needed to be stand, not sit). The game is named due to the "trick" in Kart Formula races called "slip stream", it's the effect from running behind any other car and be pulled by the whirls made by the air, if you do this on the game you get a "free" turbo boost and help you to win.

    - Fix protection
    - Fix jpark correctly
    - Hardware: Sega System32: 5-layer tilemap hardware consisting of 4 independant rom-based layers with linescroll, lineselection, linezoom and window clipping capability and one simpler ram-based text plane. Mixed ram/rom sprite engine with palette indirection, per-color priority (thankfully not actually used). The sprite list includes jumping and clipping capabilities, and advanced hot-spot positioning. The mixer chip adds totally dynamic priorities, alpha-blending of the tilemaps, per-component color control, and some other funnies we have not been able to decypher.
    - All sega32 sets except brival, brivalj: MAME opens window/screen too big. haynor (ID 05337)

    - 0.97u4: Rewrote the System 32 sprite mixer layer to support accurate implementation of the alpha blending modes. Sprite shadows and several other effects are still not yet implemented. And it's much slower than before [Aaron Giles].
    - 0.97u3: Fixed System 32 cpu2/gfx2 rom loading.
    - 24th June 2005: Charles MacDonald - I've been making a lot of progress with the System 32 hardware. Most everything has been documented at this point, currently I'm working on the mixer chip. It's responsible for combining all the display layers (five tilemaps, a bitmap, and sprites) based on priority and applying special effects such as blurring and alpha blending. I've also looked at the random number generator, which I'll discuss here. The random number generator is a 16-bit register mapped throughout the $D80000-$DFFFFF range. Writing to it sets the seed value. It is clocked asynchronously rather than by access from the V60, so continually reading it does not produce an exact dump of the values it generates. Furthermore things like the V60's prefetch queue make it difficult to synchronize the CPU with running instruction sequences, so even the same code that reads the random number generator several times will have slightly different values depending on how quickly the V60 processes it. For example, you could assume the mov.d (64-bit) and mov.w (32-bit) transfer instructions issue four or two back-to-back memory read bus cycles, respectively. If the random number generator was clocked at a slower rate, mov.d would capture more data than mov.w does when they are used repeatedly to dump the output. However the data read does not resemble any part of the data captured using mov.w, meaning that the random number generator is updated faster than the V60 can access in a best case situation. One possible solution would be to cut the trace to the clock input (there are two of them, 16 and 8 MHz) on the custom chip that contains the random number generator hardware and connect it to a spare I/O port pin, allowing it to be manually clocked through software. I had done a similar thing on System 24 to determine how the timers were implemented, so it can work in the right circumstances. But the same chip also controls many other aspects of the hardware and this might prevent the system from running. It would only work if one of the clock inputs was used for non-critical functions as well as the random number generator. I've got two spare boards and may try this eventually. Perhaps it is possible to determine how the random numbers are generated without having a sample of every possible state. I wouldn't mind hearing from people with some experience on this subject.
    - 0.97u2: Added vidhrdw\segas32.c. System 32 and Multi System 32 games are seriously under construction now. Do not report any bugs against them [Aaron Giles].
    - 15th June 2005: Charles MacDonald - I've been using Aaron's V60 assembler to develop test programs for the Sega System 32 platform. The video hardware seems to be a precursor of what's in the Sega Saturn's VDP1/2 chips, which makes it interesting to study but also quite complex. Thankfully I've done a lot of work with the Saturn in the past. I picked up some related PCBs as well; two DBZ V.R.V.S boards (I can confirm that it is a terrible game, ironically these were conversions from Arabian Fight and Dark Edge) and I'm expecting a System Multi 32 "Title Fight" board to arrive soon.
    - 0.97u1: Began cleanup of the Sega System 32 driver [Aaron Giles]: Things may not work as well as before; this will be fixed over time. Do not report bugs on it. Also changed V60 CPU to clock multiple cycles per instruction instead of requiring every driver to divide the clock; updated all drivers to use the correct clock speed. Changed V60 CPU1 clock speed to 16107950 Hz and Z80 CPU2 and the 2x YM3438 to 8053975 Hz. Changed visible area to 416x224 and user1 roms to cpu1 (100000/100001). Aaron Giles changed V60 CPU to clock multiple cycles per instruction instead of requiring every driver to divide the clock; updated all drivers to use the correct clock speed. Changed V60 CPU1 clock speed to 16107950 Hz, Z80 CPU2 to 8053975 Hz and the 2x YM3438 to 8053975 Hz. Changed visible area to 416x224. Changed V60 CPU1 clock speed to 20MHz in the Multi32 games.
    - 0.96u4: Aaron Giles rewrote the RF5C68 sound emulator from the specs, improving sound in the System 18/32 games. Changed RF5C68 sound clock speed to 12.5MHz.
    - 0.96: Brad Oliver fixed endianness problems in the Sega System 32 games rom loading.
    - 0.93: Added clock parameter to RF5C68 sound (9MHz) and to MultiPCM sound (8053975 Hz).
    - 0.89u5: Changed system32.c to segas32.c driver. Added machine\segas32.c. Started minor cleanup of System 32 driver (some things are probably broken for now) [David Haywood]. Changed V60 CPU1 clock speed to 1.6MHz and Z80 CPU2 to 8MHz and region cpu1 ($100000/100001) to user1 in all games. TODO: There are still MANY issues with the system 32 driver, mostly video related. Bitmap enable is not understood (rad mobile, rad rally 'Winners Don't Use Drugs' and rad rally title screen). Background pen / solid tilemap not understood (rad rally course select *many* other places). Clipping windows not fully understood for tilemaps or sprites. Flip bits for tilemaps unknown (svf uses a kludge). Priorities are wrong (needs full priority buffer rendering). Protection is also a serious problem in several games. Readd code for jpark cabinet (it was never right anyway). Which I/O ports should be considered custom? Move alien3 / jpark to custom io. Readd random number generator.
    - 0.75: Fixed another V60 bug introduced in 0.74u2 which broke the v70 games (and further broke Outrunners) [Kobat, Olivier Galibert].
    - 0.68: Various System 32 updates (priority, SVF pitch etc.) [Acho A. Tang, Jason Lo, David Haywood]. Note, theres a chance some things may be broken.
    -  7th May 2003: Acho A. Tang submitted a small sprite drawing speedup to the Sega System 32 driver.
    - 22nd April 2003: Jason Lo added dual screen support, added sprite shadows and improved the graphics priorities in the Sega System Multi 32 driver.
    -  9th April 2003: David Haywood fixed the rowscroll / rowselect in Sega System 32 graphics emulation, fixing the title screen in Outrunners, playfield in Super Visual Football, floors in Arabian Fight and Burning Rival and mirror view in Rad Rally.
    - 0.67: Added multi32.c driver. Sega 315-5560 "MultiPCM" sound chip emulation [R. Belmont]. TODO: I/O bits including controls. Fix remaining Gfx problems convert from using the 16-bit V60 to the 32-bit V70 (I'm doing this later as I couldn't get it to boot with the V70 for now and the gfx hardware is easier to work with this way). Support both monitors.
    -  4th April 2003: Jason Lo submitted major improvements to the Sega System Multi 32 driver, Hard Dunk and Outrunners are playable though they have a few graphics glitches. David Haywood fixed the row scroll / row select in Outrunners.
    - 0.65: Added machine\random.c/h.
    -  2nd February 2003: David Haywood converted the Sega System 32 driver for the tilemap system and added preliminary alpha blending emulation.
    - 31st January 2003: R. Belmont sent in a very preliminary System 32 Multi driver in which basically only the MultiPCM sound works, nothing else.
