    • Ported all rendering to access PPU address space through memory map.
    • Updated MAME drivers to install read handlers or memory banks in PPU memory map, as appropriate.
    • Removed all mirroring and banking code from the ppu, as the backing memory is documented to be external.

    • Revisited schematics.
    • Found 10-Yard schematics as well.

  • David Haywood provided NMK16 driver clean ups. Merged some of the duplicated code in nmk16.c, and attempting to handle the larger tilemaps used by Thunder Dragon 2, Rapid Hero and Macross 2 in a more correct way. This has fixed some glitches in the intro of Rapid Hero without breaking the ingame graphics.
  • Fabio Priuli added default input mappings for gambling / poker / slot games. Converted many drivers to use the new mappings.
  • robiza provided some improvements to the meadows driver:
    • Set autocenter value to 0 in deadeye.
    • Implemented correct inputs in bowl3d and removed not working flag.
  • Fabio Priuli unified sets with unknown manufacturer to use all the same manufacturer <unknown>.
  • Brian Troha documented what the "language" dipswitch actually does for Rapid Hero. Clear screens. When set to "English" you simply see "Stage 'x' Clear" (where 'x' is the current stage you just finished).
  • Luigi30 changed quake CPU speed to 233MHz, added basic PC IO map, hooked up 8259, corrected year to 1998, added some TODO statements.
  • Atari Ace moved priority_bitmap from a global into the running_machine struct. Updated all drivers accordingly.
  • hap changed Scud Hammer analog controls from paddle to accelerometer. Previously, if you did nothing, the paddle control caused the hammer to smash automatically.
  • Corrado Tomaselli verified and updated the vertical syncs on the following pcb:
    • System18 motherboards
    • Ninja Ryukenden
    • Tricky Doc
    • Raiden
    • Ninja Kid 2
    • Atomic Robokid
    • Tiger Road
    • STV motherboard
    • Toki
    • Raiden 2 / Raiden DX (same pcb)
    • Cabal
    • Blood Bros
    • Tengai
    • gng
    • Rally Byke
    • Vimana
  • hap fixed some inconsistencies with bootleg manufacturer names, eg. using Bootleg (big B), or using the original company if the rom is a bootleg.
  • Corrado Tomaselli changed sound z80 of ghost and goblins from 3mhz to 1.5mhz as verified on pcb.
  • Xander fixed cobram3 dip switch.
  • hap fixed a bug related to eating cycles during 68k cpu reset. Previously, initial_cycles had a wrong value after reset, and if cycles were < 0, it'd always return 0. This change also happens to fix a scrolling bug in Fantasy Zone, introduced when that cycle eating thing was added.
  • David Haywood provided a Calc 3 update:
    • Shuffled a few things around based on new findings.
    • Added an extra decryption table used for the Brap Boys startup code (still doesn't do anything interesting).
    • Noted that one of the unknown parameters for the MCU Init command is where it reads / writes eeprom data from.
    • Noted that an additional parameter in the MCU commands may cause further displacement of the writeback address, as BRap Boys seems to rely on this (needs further testing).
    • Added a hack for now so that BRap Boys places the writeback address of the initial table somewhere that causes it to get executed.
  • David Haywood marked graphics ROMs on Led Storm Rally 2011 (US) as bad, as they cannot possibly be the right ones for this set.
  • hap properly added support for namcos2 multiple posirq anyway. Fixes the following issues:
    • starblad polys.
    • fourtrax track and mirror.
    • dirtfoxj game start spotlight effect, game still locks up tho.
    • burnforc 'hiccup' glitches when scrolling left/right.
    • luckywld tunnel glitch (still a bit glitchy though).
    • finehour bad sprite colors.
  • Corrado Tomaselli changed vsyncs to the following games: truxton, demon's world, Pang, super pang, block block, yie ar kungfu and kikikaikai.
  • Corrado Tomaselli corrected sn76459 clock to Ye Ar Kungfu and verified the other clocks.
  • hap switched galaxian LFO sound to use the long-disabled NEW_LFO. It's not entirely fixed, but it's closer.
  • Kevin Eshbach provided minor MCR documentation changes:
    • Updated all of the TRON sets with location of the roms and the board they belong to.
    • Updated the name of the PROM on the Super Sound I/O board.
    • Added notes about PALs that need to be dumped (The same PAL part numbers are also used on Xenophobe and probably other MCR II & III games).
  • Michael Zapf fixed chdman -update to leave the write protect state alone when updating uncompressed CHDs.
  • Fabio Priuli changed default key for Mahjong P1 Bet to '3', because '2' was conflicting with P2 Start in 2 players Mahjong games.
