Specific Contributions

The known contributions for this version are, in the order specified in the whatsnew:

  • Alex Jackson did a massive cleanup/fixing of 16-bit Sega drivers:
    • many corrections to descriptive set names, adding revision letters, cabinet types, etc.
    • fixed many DIP switches and added PORT_DIPLOCATION support
    • adjusted min/max values for analog controls to improve response
    • fixed button ordering between System 16A/B
    • cleaned up a number of ROM names and fixed some incorrect guesses
    • some cleanup of turbo.c as well
    • fixed visible area in Hang-On hardware
    • actually disabling 8751 in games that have a fake replacement
    • hooked up 8255 PPI correctly now that it has mode 2 support
    • fixed behavior of NMI line in later sega sound boards
    • fixed addressing in the SegaPCM sound system
    • some hardware/documentation cleanup
  • Nathan Woods did some cleanups in the new UI/video code to make MESS happy.
  • Nathan Woods added macros to prevent use of strcasecmp and strncasecmp for better cross-platform compatibility.
  • Antoine Mine connected unimplemented opcode $01 on the 6809 core.
  • Nathan Woods implemented CNT pin and some serial features of the 6526 CIA chip.
  • Canim mapped the service button in slammast.
  • Aaron Giles fixed a bug in 8039 CPU handling of A11 latch.
  • Aaron Giles rewrote the Zaxxon driver from the schematics. This is still a WIP (not finished yet):
    • correct clock speeds and video timing
    • complete memory maps
    • connected universal sound board to Ixion and Razmataz
    • simplified video code and merged common cases together
    • palette derived from resistor weights
    • background positioning still a little off
  • Aaron Giles added service_coin_lockout_w() to lockout service coins.
  • Aaron Giles added MDRV_SCREEN_RAW_PARAMS() which lets you specify a pixel clock, horizontal, and vertical video timing values in place of the usual screen size, visible area, refresh rate, and VBLANK timing values.
  • Aaron Giles fixed a bug that prevented save/restore from working in the UI.
  • Aaron Giles changed mode selection logic so that refresh is weighted more strongly when picking a mode. This allows you to specify -resolution 0x0@60 to force MAME to pick a 60Hz screen refresh while allowing it to choose the best resolution.
