Information on tinstar

Artwork available


WIP:

- 22nd February 2010: Mr. Do - MASH noticed that Tin Star was smudged in the screen area, so he took care of that one for us, along with a little more cleanup.

- 0.122u6: Changed M68705 CPU3 clock speed to 3MHz.

- 0.116u3: David Haywood added clone The Tin Star (set 2). Changed parent description to 'The Tin Star (set 1)'.

- 14th June 2007: Tirino73 dumped The Tin Star (set 2). This romset comes from an original Taito PCB. Gameplay difference are none.

- 12th November 2006: Mr. Do - We have a Tin Star bezel, thanks to a cooperative effort with ClassicArcadeGrafix, with additional cleanup by Ad_Enuff.

- 25th August 2005: 3D ARCADE - New 3D cabinet model for The Tin Star from Fossil.

- 0.96u2: Nicola Salmoria fixed several sprite priority issues in Tin Star.

- 0.92: Nicola Salmoria added sound CPU -> main CPU communication. This fixes Tin Star hangs without need for a kludge and makes tunes between levels correctly play until the end.

- 0.61: Stephane Humbert added 'Star Sound' dipswitch.

- 27th July 1999: Zsolt Vasvari fixed Tin Star protection issues.

- 0.36b1: Added layer prom eb16.22.

- 0.35: Added new MCU cpu3 rom (2k).

- 0.35b6: Replaced M6805 CPU3 with M68705. Known issues: The aiming dial is emulated using a dual joystick setup. Collision detection is not emulated, therefore the barrels don't have any effect. There might be some misbehaviours caused by imperfect emulation of the 68705 protection. Sprite priority glitches.

- 0.35b3: Changed M6805 CPU3 clock speed to 1.5MHz.

- 0.34b2: Nicola Salmoria added aiming dial to Tin Star (using a dual joystick setup). Known issues: Collision detection is not emulated, therefore the barrels don't have any effect. There might be some misbehaviours caused by imperfect emulation of the 68705 protection.

- 0.34b1: Nicola Salmoria added 'The Tin Star' (Taito 1983), not complete. Known issues: Dipswitches not verified. The aiming dial is not emulated. Barrels don't kill you. This might be related to the similar problems in Front Line. Sprite priority glitches.
