Summary 02577: crush and clones: Broken Dips
Description The "Coinage" and "Teleport Holes" dips are broken
Steps To Reproduce The game coins-up with 2 coins/1 credit setting only. All other coinage settings and free play not working.
Teleport Holes setting is not working, seen as switched "off" during game play.
Here's a side effect:
In any stage during the game, hold down the player 1 start button and within 2 to 20 seconds the teleport hole will appear, even when switched off in the dipsw setting and rebooted. If you release the player 1 start button you can move over the teleport hole without teleporting. If you hold down the player 1 start button while passing over the teleport hole you will teleport.
All other dip switches appear to be working normally but cannot confirm if "First Pattern" is broken or normal game behavior.
Additional Information Tested with sets crush and maketrax only, I do not have any other clone sets.
Regression is somewhere between 0.125u1 and 0.126. Tests working in 0.125 and broken in 0.126 official binaries.

If you look at maketrax_special_port2_r, it reads data from IN1.

But if you look at the INPUT_PORTS definition, the protection affects DSW1.

Furthermore, the handler affects memory where DSW1 is read (see pacman memory map).

So I think you should have this :

static READ8_HANDLER( maketrax_special_port2_r )
    int data = input_port_read(machine, "DSW1");

Sets that shall be affected : crush, maketrax, maketrxb, mbrush.

BTW, there seems to be the same problem for 'korosuke' where the read handler shall be :

static READ8_HANDLER( korosuke_special_port2_r )
    int data = input_port_read(machine, "DSW1");

I can't code anything right now, so I hope that someone will be able to look at this ...

when inputs were converted from indexed to tagged, the wrong tag was used for both input handlers (input ports 2 were 'dsw1' and not 'in1')
