Tips sur Great Swordsman (World?)

* Trick : By continually hitting your opponents sword, you can cause them to lose their sword. Their sword ends up impaling their head!

* Trick : Killing your opponent very quickly with a strike to the head can cause their helmet to fly off.

* Tip : High and mid strikes in succession can easily force your opponent out-of-bounds.

* Tip : On stage 1, holding away from your opponent while striking increases your weapon return speed.

* Tip : On stage 3, use the far right wall as a defense, since you can't step out-of-bounds.

- 11th April 2005: Nicola Salmoria - Sprite colors in Great Swordsman have been one of the longest standing and most elusive emulation imperfections to date. It was hardly noticeable, because a manually crafted lookup table had been crafted in the driver, so colors looked ok. Finally, thanks to Kold666's invaluable help, the emulation is now perfect. As you can see in the shots, the difference is subtle but it's there. It is probably most evident on the pulsing logo, whose color changes are now slightly smoother. The way how I achieved this is worth of mention. Kold (Corrado Tomaselli) kindly provided some pictures of the PCB (parts side and solder side). I x-flipped the solder side, overlapped them in a gfx editing program, and carefully aligned them so I could see both layers at once. Then started tracing from the color lookup PROM, to see what the board does with the data. In the end, it turned out that the sprite palette data comes from a row of the character palette, the tricky part being that the order of the 4 bits coming out from the lookup PROM is reversed. This is something that could have been noticed before, but it always eluded me.
