    • Fixed statriv2v character generator to be more accurate.
    • Fixed incorrect colors.
    • Correct video timing.
  • Angelo Salese and David Haywood did miscellaneous Naomi work and improvements. Some refactoring done, new games hooked up. Moved NAOMI DRIVER_INITs to specific machine/naomi.c & includes/naomi.h files, in preparation to add per-game JVS settings.
  • Aaron Giles changed generic NVRAM behavior so that all the variants look for a memory region named "nvram". If it is found and is of the same length as the generic_nvram_size, data is copied from there instead of filling the RAM with the fallback pattern.
  • Derrick Renaud fixed mouse/lightgun buttons to individually select when using -mouse/-multimouse and -lightgun. Meaning you will not receive Mouse Button 0 Gun Button 0 when selecting in the UI.
  • Angelo Salese merged memory map and attempted to add proper colors in Carrera.
  • Derrick Renaud fixed UI selection of Gun axis so Gun 1 is not always selected with the desired gun when using RawInput.
  • Fabio Priuli fixed frontend messages to leave enough space for clone longer names.
  • Wilbert Pol added T6W28 sound core (SNK(?) custom sn76489a clone).
  • Yasuhiro Ogawa removed YM2151 from gijoe which is not present on real PCB.
