Information on tsurugi

0.114u1 [Ville Linde]

Compact Flash required


- 4th June 2011: Ville Linde - I have been implementing a lot more features of the Viper hardware. More specifically; the I2C interface and global timers on the MPC8240 and the DS2430 EEPROM. Surprisingly enough, Tsurugi starts to show its attract mode, although eventually crashing after the scroll screen.

- 0.132u5: Guru and Angelo Salese redumped Compact Flash and NVRAM for all Konami Viper games and updated drivers.

- 0.114u1: Ville Linde added Tsurugi (ver EAB) (Konami 2001) and (ver JAC).

- 11th March 2006: Guru - I just picked up lots of juicy stuff from my local post office like the Viper game Tsurugi - The Sword (Konami, 2001, Viper h/w). Thanks to Bobaruni.
