0.100u3 [David Haywood, Corrado Tomaselli]
- The difficulty selection screen appears for a moment just after pressing the start button. king_krm (ID 00781)
- If you play the game with player1 and made a wrong answer you will get the screen as shown in image 1. And if you do the same thing with player2 you will get the screen as shown in image2. king_krm (ID 00782)
- 0.101u3: Sonikos fixed some dips in Pop's Pop's. Added dipswitches 'Demo Sounds', 'Free Play', 'Difficulty' and 'Coinage'.
- 0.100u3: David Haywood added Pop's Pop's (Afega 1999).
- 24th September 2005: David Haywood - We thought that Pop's Pop's (Afega 1990) was missing the Sprite roms, but it may just not use sprites. This is a Wheel of Fortune style game, but it seems to tell you the answer before each round... I'm not sure it should be doing that. Thanks to MAME Italian Forum for helping with this.
- 23rd September 2005: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Pop's Pop's. The PCB miss an EPROM in a socket and the game has bad gfx.

0.36b2 [Mirko Buffoni, Richard Bush]
- NMK004 sound CPU is just (imperfectly) simulated for now.
- There is a handshaking operation happening on boot in most games. It happens on the NMK004 communication ports so I have implemented it in NMK004.c. However, the same handshaking also happen in tharrier, which doesn't have a NMK004! Therefore, it might be another protection device, which sits in the middle between CPU and NMK004.
- Protection is patched in several games.
- Hacha Mecha Fighter: MCU simulation *might* be wrong/incorrect (see notes).
- Cocktail mode is supported, but tilemap.c has problems with asymmetrical visible areas.
- Music timing in nouryoku is a little off.
- In Bioship, there's an occasional flicker of one of the sprites composing big ships. Increasing CPU speed from 12 to 16 MHz improved it, but it's still not 100% fixed. (but the CPU speed has been verified to be 10Mhz??)
- Input ports in Bio-ship Paladin, Strahl
- Sound communication in Mustang might be incorrectly implemented
- Incorrect OKI samples banking in Rapid Hero
- Hacha Mecha Fighter: (BTANB) the bomb graphics are pretty weird when the game is in japanese mode,but it's like this on the original game,it's just a japanese write for "bomb" word (I presume)
- The NMK004 CPU might be a Toshiba TLCS-90 class CPU with internal ROM in the 0000-1fff range.
- The later games (from GunNail onwards) have an higher resolution (384x224 instead of 256x224) but the hardware is pretty much the same. It's obvious that the higher res is an afterthought, because the tilemap layout is weird (the left 8 screen columns have to be taken from the rightmost 8 columns of the tilemap), and the games rely on mirror addresses to access the tilemap sequentially.
- manybloc: There are writes to 0x080010.w and 0x080012.w (MCU ?) in code between 0x005000 to 0x005690, but I see no call to "main" routine at 0x005504! There are writes to 0x08001c.w and 0x08001e.w but I can't tell what the effect is ! Could it be related to sound and/or interrupts ? In the "test mode", press BOTH player 1 buttons to exit. When help is available, press BUTTON2 twice within the timer to "solve".
- Sound notes for games with a Z80: mustangb and tdragonb use the Seibu Raiden sound hardware and a modified Z80 program (but the music is intact and recognizable). See audio\seibu.c for more info on this.
- NMK004 sound CPU is just (imperfectly) simulated for now. Source (ID 02417)
- Cocktail mode is supported, but tilemap.c has problems with asymmetrical visible areas. Source (ID 02419)
- airattck, raphero: All nmk16 games have priority issues. Roberto Zandona (ID 00780)
- Many sets in nmk16.c: Flip screen problem. jbaronas88 (ID 01856)

- 0.145u6: NMK16 update [trap15]: Fixed some issues and cleaned up the video sources a bit. Marked all appropriate games with a GAME_IMPERFECT_GRAPHICS flag (all of the old methods were imperfect toot hey just weren't marked for some reason).

- 0.133u1: NMK16 driver clean ups [David Haywood]: Merged some of the duplicated code in nmk16.c, and attempting to handle the larger tilemaps used by Thunder Dragon 2, Rapid Hero and Macross 2 in a more correct way. This has fixed some glitches in the intro of Rapid Hero without breaking the ingame graphics.
- 0.131u1: Memory map merging for the NMK16 driver and cleaned-up some unneeded video code [Angelo Salese].
