Specific Contributions

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

  • Atari Ace continued to add const qualifiers on remaining items in the project.
  • johnboy contributed Neo Geo updates:
    • Added Neo-Geo game pcb info
    • Corrected a number of incorrect ROMs
    • Added MVS VERSION tag to fightfva, renamed 'P'-rom
    • Added MVS AND AES VERSION tag to joyjoy
    • Added AES VERSION tag to kof99
    • Added MVS VERSION tag to kof99a
  • Sonikos cleaned up input ports for cave.c and rpunch.c.
  • couriersud made another big dkong.c driver update:
    • Wrote a M58817 sound driver and hooked it up. Uses a tms5110 speech synthesis. The LPC format is identical, however coefficients seem to be different. Until coefficients are known, samples are used.
    • changed dkong/radarscp based games to use hardware-conformant I8035 memory maps
    • Added drakton clone drktnjr on dkongjr hardware
    • moved address remapping proms to REGION_USER1 (hunchbkd & co)
    • Service now adds credit
    • Hooked up coin_counters
    • remove GAME_NOT_WORKING GAME_WRONG_COLORS from hunchbkd
    • dkongjr: mapped more interface lines between sound and cpu boards
    • tagged all inputs, all reads use tag names
    • moved more static vars into dkong_state
  • kingshriek added more major SCSP fixes:
    • Rewrote much of the interpolation code
    • Improved key-rate scaling calculation
    • Fixed playback of non-looping samples with a zero loop-end address
    • Fixed backwards looping mode so that it initially reads forward until encountering the loop-start address
    • Preliminary but reasonable-sounding FM support
    • Fixed overflow in frequency calculation
    • Improved FM, but it's disabled for now because it doesn't sound right yet
    • Improved DSP wet/dry mix (should be correct now)
    • Fixed a minor LPSLNK problem
  • Jim Stolis fixed Hopper Empty and Coin-Out Timeout issues in the peplus.c driver.
