Specific Contributions

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

  • smf fixed ports in some TESTDRIVERS so there are no complaints with the Sanity Checks
  • Jarek Burczynski made various Sound improvements to YM2610, YM2608, Y8950: Inspired by Frits Hilderink (NLMSX emulator author) I attempted to:
    • improve support of the ymdeltat module for the status registers (YM2610,YM2608,Y8950),
    • implement x1bit/x8bit DRAM usage for the ADPCM samples,
    • implement memory read/write via deltat (Y8950 and YM2608)
    • ADPCM synthesis in 'slave' mode (CPU controlled, instead of memory based).
    • I made some tests but the changes are quite big so please test them before including. I'm sure the Y8950 will be tested by NLMSX authors too.
  • Nathan Woods fixed some i86 DAA opcodes + more
    • Renames display_fps() to ui_display_fps() and makes it non-static
    • In osd_fopen(), if a file is opened with mode "r", FILE_SHARE_READ will be passed to the dwShareMode parameter of CreateFile(). This allows other programs to read any files that MAME opens for read only.
    • i86 DAA fixes
  • Gerald corrected the Green Beret Rom names
