Information on cryptklr

0.78 [R. Belmont, smf]

HardDisk required


- 0.151: smf fixed RAM/ROM check regression in Crypt Killer.

- 0.144u7: Curt Coder fixed SCSI hard disk allocation. This fixed Crypt Killer crashes MAME before it can display the disclaimer. Correct disk prefix to make Crypt Killer boot again [hap].

- 0.131u1: Angelo Salese merged memory maps in Crypt Killer.

- 0.79u1: Changed description to 'Crypt Killer (GQ420 UAA)'.

- 0.78: R. Belmont and smf added Crypt Killer (ver. UAA) (Konami 1995).

- 24th December 2003: smf and R. Belmont sent in a driver for Konami GQ system supporting Crypt Killer.

- 16th December 2003: R. Belmont - Crypt Killer uses the Tekken-style GPU. That fixed up the textures nicely. Dipswitches and inputs are hooked up now including the guns. Sound and music are 100%.

- 15th December 2003: R. Belmont - The wacky textures are due to GPU/GTE bugs smf will need to fix.

- 7th August 2002: Guru - Crypt Killers (Konami 1995, Playstation hardware + 540M harddrive) arrived, which I bought for PCB-A-Holic.

LEVELS: 24 (4 acts x 6 missions)
