applauds the Bemani updates
03/14/21 06:58 AM

While eagerly awaiting for the specific Mattel Electronics led games used with
pps4/1 mcu variants, the Bemani updates by the various contributors is very timely
since the various Bemani games are starting to become somewhat rare these days.

Great work and thanks for helping get these preserved. Other Bemani cab owners
might be able to still keep their Bemani hardware functioning as best possible
in case specific data is needed in order to do repair/restoration work in the

Reading the arcade history pages is something when seeing number of cabs having
to be moved and transported from one place to another. Good preservation work
there with Bemani hardware.


twinkle.cpp: Added missing data except for encrypted dongles (1st, cl…

…ub, substream). (#7833)

* Added all missing hard disk and CD images.
* Replaced CD images marked as bad dumps.
* Added dongle dumps for 2nd style through 8th style, replacing hand-crafted data for 4th and 5th.


There are missing items in the ksys573.cpp source file. If anything currently
missing is on hand and can be added later, thanks.

My preferred Bemani hardware game is Drum Mania since I play drums myself.

The photo is from soCali MAME meet in 2006 in which I was playing the game
(using my own drumsticks that I brought with me to play the game) at
Camelot miniature golf course.

This was while dining inside Round Table pizza in Fullerton, CA. I brought along a
sizeable filing box filled with about 100 manuals and foldout logic schematics iirc to
show what items analog audio (discrete) had yet to be emulated at the time in 2006
while dining there at lunch before visiting Camelot miniature golf course arcade center.
iirc A lot of the items that were shown at the meet were Midway 1970s era 8080 games
manuals and foldout logic schematics along with Gremlin manuals. I had some pong clone
logic schematics, but since MAME was not yet emulating non-cpu games in 2006, I didn't
show those.

Pete (visiting from Australia and attending IEEE convention in San Diego at the time)
was wanting to know what analog audio sound effects were being played in Borderline.

And Pete, Zephyr, Mr. Do and myself at Fullerton, CA Amtrak station parking lot
where Pete traveled from San Diego, CA to Fullerton, to meet up at the meet back
in 2006. Since Pete likes Borderline and my favorite Gremlin vicdual hardware game
is Frogs, Pete modeled with Borderline manual while I held my Frogs manual.
