Specific Contributions

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

  • wolf676 made more findout.c/getrivia.c improvements:
    • added ticket dispenser to Trivia/Sexual Trivia
    • found last unknown dipswitch in Selection/Poker
    • added missing "Payout" button; payout hardware unknown
    • added missing "Play / Raise" button and its lamp 9
    • added "Button 12 ?" to selection, function unknown
    • re-added PORT_IMPULSE(2) to poker games buttons because they do not like it if two or more buttons are held; trivia games still respond better without this
    • changed coin_lockout_global to coin_lockout_w(0) and coin_lockout_w(1) for 2 coin slots in selection;
    • added missing lamps 11 (coin slot 2), 12 and 13 (unknown) to selection
  • El Condor fixed a crash in the MPU4 driver.
  • ElSemi hooked up the ARM ROM for kovsh, though it doesn't work yet.
  • Robert made some fixes for the 8080bw driver:
    • The correct samples are being used for lrescue, lrescuem, grescue, desterth
    • Dipswitch corrections for superinv, invadrmr, sinvemag, spceking, spacewr3
    • Remove extraneous beeping noise from indianbt
  • Corrado Tomaselli converted all the toaplan2.c games to mono since the PCBs are JAMMA without external stereo connectors.
  • Aaron Giles redesigned the OSD file I/O interfaces to be simpler and more straightforward. Also simplified the core's file I/O routines and included some functionality that was previously left to the OSD layer.
  • Aaron Giles rewrote unzip.c to return richer errors and generally behave better.
  • Aaron Giles rewrote audit.c to simplify the code and not rely on extraneous functions that were in the old file I/O system.
  • Aaron Giles simplified the 68000 core generation logic to just produce one file. Hopefully this will cure some of the build issues with the core.
