 Eco Fighters / Ultimate Ecology With A Spinner

There is an unofficial spinner adapter for Eco Fighters / Ultimate Ecology that triggers a hidden spinner option. It adds "rolling" to the input test menu and disables buttons 2 and 3. BillD got one in the mail and confirmed it. Someone can probably figure out how to enable it in emulation and add the functionality to MAME.

I got the info below today from dlfrsilver about Toki:

Hello guys,

I have found lately a video made by 2 French guys, which have been in contact with the ex boss Tadashi Yokoyama, the owner of Tad(ashi) Corporation arcade company

Facts :

- Toki was chosen by Tadashi because it's the name of his own son

Coding Facts :

Akira Sakuma, the coder of Toki said this about the coding :

"Most of TAD employees used PC-98XX in those days. I think I was using PC-9801RA (CPU:80386 DX) and PC-9801FA (CPU:i486SX+ODP). And I developed a program using an ICE(In Circuit Emulator) of IWASAKI GIKEN."

So Toki was coded with the same system used by the neogeo coders at SNK.

- Akira Sakuma still has the entire source code of Toki.

- The devil monkey with horns from the level 2 has the most complex AI routine. It takes 27 pages 'A4' format in the source code.

- The game was released on the Dec 8th 1989 in japan, and sales figures are 3148 arcade boards sold.

- The game was released the Jan 22nd 1990 in USA by Fabtek, sales figures are 1452 arcade board sold.

- Their goal at TAD was to sell 5000 PCBs in order to recoup the development costs.

- On the 26 Feb 1990, TAD know that bootleg boards were hitting the market (information from TAD archives).

- A gift from ... (Read More)
