Information on chinhero

0.37b12 [Phil Stroffolino]


- 0.148u2: Zab added clone Chinese Hero (older, set 2). Changed description of clone '(older)' to 'Chinese Hero (older, set 1)'.

- 0.141u1: Corrado Tomaselli and Pierpaolo Prazzoli fixed sprite drawing in Chinese Hero (bad sprite on level 7). Pierpaolo Prazzoli added sprites wrap around-y to fix gorilla sprites entering from the left.

- 0.133u1: Renamed (chinher2) to (chinhero2) and (chinhert) to (chinherot).

- 0.122u6: Corrado Tomaselli verified and changed CPU frequencies in Chinese Hero. Changed Z80 CPU1/2/3 clock speeds to 3072000 Hz and AY-3-8910A to 1536000 Hz.

- 0.117: Zsolt Vasvari fixed clone Chinese Heroe (Taito) - Game now playable.

- 0.112u3: David Haywood added clone Chinese Heroe (Taito). This set has problems booting the first time in MAME, and the sound CPU crashes leaving it with no samples, strange because the sound CPU code is the same. In a debug build this causes MAME to crash. Why does this happen?

- 25th January 2007: Tirino73 dumped Chinese Heroe (Taito), comes from an original Taito licensed PCB. There are present 12 bipolar proms but i cannot dump them, but i think that code is identical to Taiyo board.

- 0.78: Stefan Jokisch added clone Chinese Hero (older).

- 21st December 2003: Stefan Jokisch added an older version of Chinese Hero to the Shanghai Kid driver.

- 14th November 2001: Phil Stroffolino added an alternate set of Chinese Hero.

- 0.37b13: Removed 3rd coin slot.

- 15th February 2001: Marco Cassili fixed dipswitch settings in Chinese Hero.

- 0.37b12: Phil Stroffolino added Chinese Hero (Taiyo 1984).

- 24th January 2001: Phil Stroffolino added Chinese Hero to the preliminary Shanghai Kid driver, but unlike Shanghai Kid, it doesn't have protection so it works perfectly.
