Specific Contributions

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

  • David Haywood changed sound banking on Shogun Warriors/B.Rap Boys to use an OKIM6295 address map and banks.
  • Phil Bennett removed the MCU comm hack from namcofl/namconb. This now fixes the music tempo in most games.
  • luigi30 fixed vroulet controls so that the Red column can be selected.
  • R. Belmont updated the 680x0 core:
    • Supported PMOVE modes from PMMU.
    • Allowed the FPU to be used for both '030 and '040.
    • Added byte and word FPU loads/stores.
    • Fixed buggy FPU 64-bit stores in the (An) addressing mode.
  • R. Belmont added add option to chdman to create uncompressed writeable HD images for MESS.
  • R. Belmont updated scsihd not to crash if no media is attached.
  • Roberto Fresca added more goldstar.c improvements:
    • Completed the New Lucky 8 Lines / New Super 8 Lines hardware/PCB layout.
    • Added New Lucky 8 Lines (set 3, extended gfx). This set has the New Lucky Lines / New Super 8 Lines program, so bets are up to 64. Same extended tileset for reels, but lacks of the New Super 8 Lines title tiles. Maybe is a hidden feature, maybe just graphics for another hack.

  • luigi30 changed the Galaxian driver:
    • Crystallized some clock speeds, put ?s near ones that didn't look correct.
    • Changed references to galaxiaj in game names to galaxiana.
  • David Haywood updated documentation for the Seibu COPDX-based games. Renamed sdgndmrb to grainbow.
