Specific Contributions

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

  • Bryan McPhail changed MAME so it now recognises off-screen shots with the Act-Labs gun in a way which works better with certain drivers (Area 51 etc,)
  • Olivier Galibert fixed various issues with the SH2 core, improving Master/Slave support (this improves shienryu on st-v but its not yet playable due to incomplete st-v emulation)
  • David Haywood fixed a crash some people were having with Nostradamus
  • David Haywood added Paddle support to pop 'n' bounce (use -mouse, enable it in test mode, the default is joystick not paddle)
  • R. Belmont improved the type 1 GX games a bit but none are working well enough to enable yet
  • R .Belmont fixed a crash with the original mustang set
  • Robin Merrill changed frogs to use a 3 way joystick instead of a 3 way joystick and 2 buttons which was incorrect
  • Remapped some of the mid*unit.c buttons to match the real board inputs
