Specific Contributions

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

  • couriersud commited a major Donkey Kong driver update:
    • Implemented discrete sound from schematics: dkong, radarscp
    • Implemented discrete background from schematics for radarscp and various effects:
      • blue to black to blue background
      • exact priorities
      • Grid will flip open and close, vertical flipping on hit.
    • Changed inputs for radarscp
    • Color generation from schematics (resistor mixer) for radarscp, dkong, dkongjr and dkong3
  • couriersud added new components to the discrete sound system:
    • Added a "inverter oscillator" component. This can also be used as a raw sine generator - needed by radarscp.
    • Added a "integration circuit" based on transistor and RC
    • Added a "modulated RC discharge" component.
  • Zsolt Vasvari removed a unused return value from VIDEO_START callbacks.
  • Atari Ace improved the independence of CPU and sound core variants in order to make them more properly separated by the existing compile-time flags.
  • Wilbert Pol added more TIA updates from MESS:
    • Rewrote drawing of playing graphics
    • Improved handling of player graphics reset signals
    • Improved handling of HMOVE signals
  • Adam Bousley updated Change Lanes:
    • fixed the broken graphics
    • fixed the dipswitches
    • hooked up the steering wheel controls
    • made some changes to the sprite and text layers based on schematics
  • Atari Ace fixed up a number of places where malloc results weren't being checked correctly.
  • Aaron Giles renamed palette_set_color() to palette_set_color_rgb(). palette_set_color() now matches palette_get_color() and deals in rgb_t data only. Also changed palette_set_colors() to deal with rgb_t data instead of R,G,B triples.
  • Aaron Giles flattened the colormap and palette in the 1942 driver.
  • Removed usage of unsigned char/short/int from the drivers code in favor of UINT8/UINT16/UINT32.
