Specific Contributions

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

  • Nathan Woods added osd_rmfile to the osdcore, replacing calls to remove().
  • Atari Ace cleaned up a number of drivers that were using malloc from within DRIVER_INIT to use malloc_or_die instead.
  • stephh updated Tempest to support second player controls.
  • Vas Crabb updated the dooyong driver to use the new-style banking system. Also added some preliminary save state support.
  • Roberto Fresca made some improvements to pmpoker.c:
    • Crystal documented via #define.
    • CPU clock derived from #defined crystal value.
    • Replaced simulated colors with proper color prom decode.
    • Cleaned up the driver a bit.
    • Updated color PROMs
  • Roberto Fresca made some improvements to funworld.c:
    • All crystals documented via #defines.
    • All CPU and sound clocks derived from #defined crystal values.
    • Added DIPLOCATIONS to all games.
    • Added proper tsc87c52 MCU dumps to monglfir and soccernew.
    • Modified the refresh rate to 60 fps.
  • Chris Hardy fixed Moon Patrol scrolling so that it matches the schematics.
  • Lord Nightmare Proper implementation of noise generator in the Exidy/Berzerk sound circuit.
  • stephh fixed toaplan2.c driver to add controls for player 3 in 'fixeigh*' (of course, main set - 'fixeight' - still remains unplayable).
  • Brian Troha added DIP locations to wwffest, ninjaw, and itech32 drivers.
  • R. Belmont Rewrote faux x86 assembly in the Irem GA20 sound core.
  • Nathan Woods made minor cleanups to the 8039 disassembler.
  • Quench improved the sslam driver:
    • corrected the music sequencing simulation of the sound controller in SSLAM based on poking a real board Guru kindly provided.
    • added save state support
    • added DIP locations
  • R. Belmont fixed a crash in cybrcomm due to missing ROM.
  • Aaron Giles changed alpha blending code to use multiplies instead of table lookups to simplify it.
  • Aaron Giles cleaned up some poorly written code in konamiic.c; there is still much work to be done here, but it fixes the GX sprites.
  • Aaron Giles removed linear interpolation from the BSMT2000 by default since the original chip did not do interpolation.
