    Forgot to turn off the "continues" option, but obviously didn't use them. Game cleared with Rastan, wolfmame v .200 used.

    Thanks for taking a look at my submission!

    Sooo... I finally got off my ass to do another 1cc of this game. The thing is, I did get 360K, but several enemies just slipped past or dropped into chasms (you don't get any points if that happens). The main thing in beating this game is the order of levels chosen.

    I am not sure what the power up of 'enemy force down' but does that mean fewer enemies encountered? If that is the case, then I think I'll go for another playthrough while keeping the castle stage the absolute last. This will, of course, make the game much harder, but more enemies = more opportunities for points.

    NOTES:
    
    - Driver based on the F2 driver and Raine source.
    
    - The dual screen games operate on hardware with various similarities to the Taito F2 system, as they share some custom ics e.g. the TC0100SCN.
    
    - For each screen the games have 3 separate layers of graphics: One 128x64 tiled scrolling background plane of 8x8 tiles, a similar foreground plane, and a 128x32 text plane with character definitions held in ram. As well as this, there is a single sprite plane which covers both screens. The sprites are 16x16 and are not zoomable.
    
    - Warrior Blade has a slightly different gfx set for the 2nd screen because the programmers ran out of scr gfx space (only 0xffff tiles can be addressed by the TC0100SCN). In-game while tiles are scrolling from one screen to the other it is necessary to have identical gfx tiles for both screens. But for static screens (e.g. cut scenes between levels) the gfx tiles needn't be the same. By exploiting this they squeezed some extra graphics into the game.
    
    - There is a single 68000 processor which takes care of everything except sound. That is done by a Z80 controlling a YM2610. Sound commands are written to the Z80 by the 68000.
    
    
    Bugs:
    
    - warriorb, darius2d: If you play Warrior Blade in "Dual Side by side-Gapless" mode and window mode and then resize the window down, the gap reappears. Iaspis (ID 00146)
    
    
    WIP:
    
    - 0.226: Fixed inverted stereo output channels [eito].
    
    - 0.136u1: Added includes\warriorb.h.
    
    - 0.106u8: Added layout\dualhsxs.lay.
    
    - 0.37b10: Added warriorb.c driver and vidhrdw\warriorb.c.
