Specific Contributions

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

  • Nathan Sturm added a better backdrop for Battle Zone (bzone.png).
  • Jim Hernandez added support for Eliminator 2/4 player samples and additional sounds for Zektor.
  • Aaron Giles added support for .wav samples. The custom .sam samples are no longer supported (you can use the sam2wav converter to convert them).
  • Nicola Salmoria added rough triple buffering support in VESA modes to the DOS version. You can turn it on with the -triplebuffer switch. It is not guaranteed to work well, but if it does, it offers results similar to -waitvsync but without the performance drop. Do NOT use it together with -vsync or -waitvsync.
  • Nicola Salmoria changed MAME so a missing ROM for which no good dump is known to exist no longer produces a fatal error - you can start the emulation even if the file is missing. Its space will be filled with random data. Of course the game will probably malfunction. The output of -verifyroms is slightly changed, it says "NO GOOD DUMP KNOWN" now and doesn't print 00000000 checksums.
  • Aaron Giles did a major overhaul to the Atari games, and fixes to the 68000 and 6502 cores to get them going properly.
