DU Donations Update
#385481 - 03/11/20 05:06 PM




Thanks to donors verybigkintama, Henrique Areias Pontes, ekorz, David Stevens, Jan Stuhler, Lorenzo Gatti, Paul Thacker, Fabien MARSAUD, Dane Biegert, Stefan Dawid, Russell Howard, Renato Mucciarelli, anonymous, ANY, Scott Moor, Sean Sutton, Mr Goodwraith, and Christopher Brownlee we got the following (sorry if I somehow missed a donor).

First is the biggest news, we got the now rare as hen's teeth TX-1 V8 to redump the bad roms and now the dump is correct and game works correctly. It's a miracle the roms from 1984 are still perfect.










We got Gemcrush with help from ShouTime.




We got Midnight Run: Road Fighter 2 (Euro) ver. 1.2. MAME currently only has ver 1.1.










We got Janken Game Acchi Muite Hoi (Data East MLC).




Lastly we got an undumped version of Double Axle.




There were a couple of ST-V carts a while ago as well but I can't find the names. That does it for donations, see below if you want to refill the pot.

This along with Data East Air Walkers, Irem's Green Beret, and Last Apostle...[months earlier] is a very good start for coinop preservation side for this year of titles I was not expecting to see being emulated at beginning of this year.

And then adding a couple more Apple II cassette titles and other computer software also being emulated makes things better.

For the MAMEinfo file I am looking for information where Phil Bennett got the Arcade Board?
What is the history of the board?


See https://twitter.com/philbennett3d

27th February 2020: Phil Bennett - TX-1 V8: the 2nd edition of TX-1, featuring new tracks and gameplay elements. Released only in Japan as an entirely new cabinet with 26" monitors (versus the 19" used by TX-1). Incredibly rare!
22nd February 2020: Phil Bennett - TX-1 about to go back into storage until I can be bothered to wire it and Buggy Boy up for testing.

We had the bad dump for many years, we used the majority in DU donations to buy an "untested" board to redump bad roms and now have a complete good dump

TX-1 Lamp posts from Arcade Hardware new [Re: MASH]
#385510 - 03/12/20 09:32 PM Attachment: TX-1 Lamp Posts from Arcade Hardware.zip 3894 KB (3 downloads)


I like to thank Phil Bennett and even others for preserving TX-1 V8, tatsumi's most Super Ultra Mega Rare game as it got like only release in Japan.

Now when I play TX-1 in MAME the lamp posts on the left in USA Track & Monaco track the land is green but in the Arcade Hardware the land became blue and I have 4 Video files as I recorded from Funspot in July 2012 to prove that I'm right.

So, Air Walkers is officially dumped? Only heard rumors about it was possibly dumped before selling.

Another TX-1 version that is NOT in MAME Yet. new [Re: simzy]
#385519 - 03/13/20 02:24 PM Attachment: TX-1 (World) but with TAZMI®.png 15 KB (0 downloads)


No I haven't but Phil Bennett fixed the road colour issue as he thank me for pointing it out.

Just wanted to let any MAME developers know that there is another TX-1 version not in MAME yet. The version is very like TX-1 (World) but on the middle screen it says TAZMI® TX-1 instead of ATARI® TX-1.

Now the screenshot that I upload is a mock but there is real prove from this website:
http://www.ausretrogamer.com/tag/tx-1/

You look under
"Then one must take it back a notch to playing the three-screen marvel, TX-1"
&
"Gotta get pole position!"
you will see the same title screen as it is.

No SPAM here as I'm telling you the truth.

Good to know the actual coinop video reference proved useful and got that old issue fixed.

I am guessing a Japanese regional version. If it isn't (any alternate versions) already documented on undumped Wiki at this time, it probably would be if undumped Wiki can ever resurface and be up and running again.

Congrats are in order for finding and successfully obtaining V8!

I'd been wondering if we'd ever find a working set, and this may just qualify as the biggest win for 2020.

Some titles, Anime Champ, have yet to be found which is where monetary contributions/donations to Dumping Union help out.

The others will require patience because the hardware that runs those is very advanced.

You mean Dance Dance Revolution Supernova and Supernova 2 run on Konami's Bemani Python 2 hardware (which is based on the PlayStation 2)? Guitar Freaks V, V2 and V3 and Drum Mania V, V2 and V3 also run on the same hardware.

My mistake. I had overlooked the page on Sixtoe's System 16 web site.

http://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=831 KONAMI BEMANI PYTHON 2 HARDWARE

I corrected my post. https://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/sh...part=1&vc=1


Anime Champ might be able to be emulated if ever found, unless the game uses some odd type of hardware input mechanisms. Some games such as earlier hardware variations of Drum Mania are emulated, but it will take a while to get some form of control inputs arranged in MAME to support those types of games.

Oh, I also forgot over a week ago. Anime Champ and Kick & Kick (AKA Football All-Stars) run on Konami's System 573 hardware, Nice Smash and Perfect Pool run on Konami's Python hardware, Thrill Drive 3 runs on Konami's Python 2 hardware and Speed King (AKA Road Rage) runs on the Konami ZR107 hardware.
