- CURIOSITA' -


Pubblicato nel Marzo 1983.


Pubblicato anche come "Discs of Tron [Environmental model]".


Discs of Tron fu disegnato originariamente per funzionare a fianco del coin-op di "Tron", ma alla fine il progetto fu messo da parte per poi essere ripreso in un secondo tempo, fu rifinito e rilasciato in una sua versione coin-op proprietaria.


Discs of Tron è ispirato dalla corta sequenza nel film (Tron, 1982 Disney) dove il personaggio Flynn batte un altro programma intrappolato ed in fine lo fa 'scomparire', e quando Tron viene introdotto, battendo quattro 'computer giocatori' molto velocemente.


David Bagenski detiene il record ufficiale per questo gioco con 418.200 punti, realizzato il 28 giugno 1986.


Un prototipo di Discs of Tron venne esposto alla fiera dei classici arcade del 2003 'California Extreme' a San Jose, California.

Artwork available


WIP:

- 0.145u7: Moved Sound Board prom 82s123.12d to midssio device set. Added 'Midway SSIO Sound Board' and 'Midway Squawk 'n' Talk Sound Board' sound to clone Discs of Tron (Environmental).

- 23rd October 2009: Mr. Do - Jcroach found another missing piece to the Discs of Tron puzzle, which gives the game that much more "oomph".

- 0.122u7: Changed M6802 CPU3 clock speed to 3579545 Hz in clone (Environmental).

- 0.122u6: Changed M6802 CPU3 clock speed to 894886 Hz and replaced TMS5220 with TMS5200 in clone (Environmental).

- 0.117u2: Aaron Giles fixed input in clone (Environmental).

- 29th April 2007: Mr. Do - Discs of Tron now has outer artwork, thanks to BYOAC (for the inner) and to Mark B. from Surfside Music and Collectibles (for the outer). Credit for vectoring both pieces to Jcroach.

- 0.109u2: Added prom ($20 - lamp sequencer) to clone Discs of Tron (Environmental).

- 0.106u10: Aaron Giles updated Discs of Tron to support the new artwork system.

- 0.100u3: Removed audio CPU roms in (Upright) and clone (Upright alternate). Only clone Discs of Tron (Environmental) used M6802/TMS5220 audio roms.

- 0.98u4: Removed M6802 CPU3 and TMS5220 speech in Discs of Tron (Upright) and clone (Upright alternate).

- 0.98u1: Fixed cpu3 roms addresses. Removed 3rd sound channel.

- 0.93: Added 3rd sound channel.

- 0.63: Added clone Discs of Tron (Upright alternate).

- 0.61: Changed visible area to 512x480 and palettesize from 32832 to 64 colors.

- 0.56: Removed 3rd coin slot.

- 18th August 2001: Nicola Salmoria adjusted the Discs of Tron driver for new artwork.

- 0.54: Fixed messed up backdrop in Discs of Tron. Changed visible area to 684x642.

- 0.53: Changed visible area to 640x600.

- 16th November 1999: Mathis Rosenhauer fixed Discs of Tron backdrop.

- 0.36b8: Nicola Salmoria change the mouse buttons to no longer aliases for joystick buttons, they are independently recognized. They are still considered "joystick" inputs though, so if you want to use them you have to redefine the controls in the Joystick menu. This is a minor annoyance that was needed to allow interfacing a Discs of Tron controller to the mouse port (spinner + up and down switches) while still using joystick buttons 1 and 2 for fire and deflect.

- 0.35b12: Changed M6802 CPU3 clock speed to 895000 Hz.

- 0.35b10: Changed M6802 CPU3 clock speed to 3580000 Hz.

- 0.33b4: Nicola Salmoria fixed -ror and -rol with ORIENTATION_FLIP_X games (e.g. Discs of Tron).

- 0.30: Frank Palazzolo added TI TMS5220 speech emulator to MAME and Aaron Giles added the TMS5220 speech to Discs of Tron.
