Summary 00819: racedrivc and any other Hard Drivin' derivative with its newer service mode: Complains when initializing inputs.
Description Complains when initializing inputs. When initializing the brake, it says:


BRAKE VALUE OUT OF RANGE, WAIT 10 MINUTES AFTER POWER UP AND RESET. The brake works anyway, calibrated properly or not. The older Hard/Race Drivin' sets use an older self-test program which initializes the controls differently, so they are unaffected.

This seems to happen with all the compact versions of Race Drivin & Hard Drivin (even the version 2 bootleg). I noticed that the game expects the strain gauge brake pedal to send a roughly 50% instead of 0% value when not pressed.

So in the analogue controls menu of MAME (I use a digital button input for brake) I have to fiddle with sensitivity until the bar rests at roughly 50% before I can enter the game's test mode to do the controls setup. I.e. the default value in the source code needs to be changed.

In Street Drivin the problem differs, because its brake is miswired to an unused wrong ADC port (bug #08221).
