Hooray.


As Haze mentioned elsewhere this leaves Touch & Go (supposedly to be worked on next week) and the gambling item Play 2000 as remaining items needing to get same treatment....and in case any other alternate versions of Gaelco games that use similar hardware protection setup appear down the road. I am guessing Play 2000 is only going to be found in either Italy, maybe France and maybe Spain so good luck for those trying to find that item.



-
src/mame/drivers/gaelco2.cpp

Touch & Go
Nova Desitec Play 2000 (Super Slot & Gran Tesoro) (v5.01) (Italy)
-

And Target Hits as well.


I might have missed discussion elsewhere, but does Gaelco World Rally need to be worked on as well just like the others? Or not necessary because of what Gaelco provided years earlier regarding World Rally?


src/mame/drivers/wrally.cpp

Gaelco World Rally




Besides Nova Desitec's Play 2000 needing to be found, I want to also remind that an original Counter Run pcb still needs to be found if possible since it is another of the volatile/battery type games that needs to be saved/preserved in case there is still a working pcb of the game still around in this day and age.


-
src/mame/drivers/freekick.cpp

GAME( 1988, countrun, 0, freekick, countrun, freekick_state, 0, ROT0, "Nihon System (Sega license)", "Counter Run (NS6201-A 1988.3)", MACHINE_NOT_WORKING | MACHINE_SUPPORTS_SAVE ) // CPU module not dumped

One is already in the hands of the MAME preservation team hopefully it can be dumped sometime.

On the subject of suicide batteries

I think that the original 'Bounty' by Orca might use one.

Shoutime said that he could see a battery, and if you compare the set 2 in MAME with the one that works it seems the main difference is that the startup code in set 2 seems to be hardcoded to draw an Orca logo and nothing else.

I suspect that the module on the PCB overlays the first part of the program rom, I also suspect that the parent set in MAME is a bootleg.

Since the game is from 1982 I'm not really sure we'll see a dump of whatever that battery was keeping alive if my theory is correct ;-)

I forgot about that item.

Good to know, but hopefully it can be done in time. I'd be wary with any pcb having that knowing it could go sour at any time.

Another one....nuts. These are the ones that should be on upper tier of priority of rescuing if possible in case anyone has such pcb. At least the Gaelco entry list is dwindling.
