    I will do a 1cc later. This is a fun game. Done on a complete whim when I found I can break the current record holder quickly.

    - 0.169: caius added clone Pirates (set 2). Changed parent description to 'Pirates (set 1)'.
    
    
    - 20th December 2015: Smitdogg - caius got an alt version of Pirates.
    
    
    - 0.72: Work around for Genix protection and tilemap scroll, making Pirates playable [Paul Priest]. Changed MSM6295 clock speed to 8080 Hz.
    
    
    - 0.63: David Haywood added Pirates (NIX 1994).
    
    
    - 25th December 2002: Nicola Salmoria decrypted Pirates completely and Paul Priest patched the protection, making the game fully playable.
    
    
    - 15th November 2002: David Haywood sent in a newer Pirates driver, adding the tilemap layer but it is still not perfect since sprites and samples are encrypted.
    
    
    - 0.62: Added (Testdriver) Pirates.
    
    
    - 16th July 2002: David Haywood sent in a preliminary driver for Pirates which is playable but the graphics don't show up and sound doesn't work because of encryption.

    TODO:
    
    
    - EEPROM doesn't work. I'm not sure what the program is trying to do. The EEPROM handling might actually be related to the protection which makes the game hang. See pirates_in1_r() for code which would work around the protection, but makes the game periodically hang for a couple of seconds; therefore, for now I'm just patching out the protection check.
    
    
    - Protection is the same in Genix Family.
    
    
    
    
    NOTES:
    
    
    - The game hanging is an interesting issue, the board owner has 2 copies of this game, one a prototype, on the final released version. The roms on both boards are the same, however the prototype locks up just as it does in MAME at the moment. The final board does not. It would appear the prototype board does not have the protection hardware correctly in place.
