Any progress in Midway Wolf Unity and Killer Instinct  :S ?.
I did a full review (opcode by opcode) of TMS34010 and did not find anything wrong :S DCS refuses to work on WUnit.  :redface:
So, I'm now working on KI again. KI driver needs a proper CHD reader.

So, no sound for Midway Wolf Unit games... when and if you have time, you could try with Midway T Unit and Y Unit games, they should have a different audio sub-system ("more conventional")... in any case, thanks a lot for your work! :)

By the way, i had a discussion with someone about how you choose the systems you add, and i was unable to answer properly because i didn't find any information on the website, so could you confirm :
- FBA is 2D only (and "false 3D" in games like Killer Instinct) ?
- You add consoles only if you have cpu/spu/gpu already emulated for an arcade system ?

On a side note, N64 is a mess to emulate, i think the best emulator for that right now is libretro-parallel, it is far from perfect and need vulkan to run.

Yea, those are the 2 main points, of course.  Then there's personal favorites and/or stuff  the driver writer always wanted to add, which naturally get a little more effort thrown at them.  I probably wont add anymore consoles/computers, but super cassette vision is on the maybe list.

I'm not very familiar with Super Cassette Vision, but looking at some game screenshots, it seems to be an interesting second generation system. :)

Yes, the Epoch Super Cassette Vision was a third (not second) generation console, almost unknown in Europe... it has a little software library, about 30 games, with some interesting japanese titles! A "funny" info: the main CPU, a NEC PD7801G, was also used in some old electronic cash registers ('80s), like the SHARP ER-2540 ! :P

With some hardcoded values for sample generation interval (IRQ) and a proper resampler, killers instinct now sounds much better, not perfect yet.

Nice work! Finally Killer Instint is closer to be "fully emulated" by FBA! :)

Hi Romhack,
have you news about Wolf Unit audio driver and/or Killer Instint driver?

Hi guys, any progress on the Wolf Unit driver, particularly the sound in the MK games?
GENTLEMEN: START YOUR ENGINES!!

Daytona USA is emulated for the PC.

The last Romhack's post said:

So, I'm now working on KI again. KI driver needs a proper CHD reader.

The DCS (Digital Compression System) was a sound sub-system of various Midway/Williams arcade boards (including Wolf Unit)... I hope I'm wrong, but probably there's no progress...
