MAMETesters Bugs Fixed
esb065gre [Mathis Rosenhauer]
Undid fix for turbofrc37b1gre since it broke more things that it
fixed. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
Fixed minor color issue in Cookie & Bibi. [David Haywood]
Updates to the Hyperstone core: [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
- Removed nested delays
- Added better delay branch support
- Fixed PC seen by a delay instruction, because a delay instruction
should use the delayed PC (thus allowing the execution of software
Hooked up watchdog for NeoGeo games and removed a number of hacks.
Fixed hanging at the end of level 3 in klondkp. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
Fixed inputs in Renju Kizoku, Neratte Chu, Mayjinsen 2 and some dips
in Neratte Chu, Mayjinsen 2. [Sonikos]
Improved auto_malloc so it uses less memory and doesn't have a hard-
coded limit on the maximum number of allocations. Also audited the
use of auto_malloc in the code and removed unnecessary checks for
NULL (since auto_malloc doesn't return if it fails). [Atari Ace]
Fixed osd_fopen error reporting to return the correct value if you hit
MAX_OPEN_FILES. [Nathan Woods]
Changed several byte operands in the i386 disassembler to be
diassembled as unsigned rather than signed. [Nathan Woods]
Discrete sound updates: [Derrick Renaud]
- Added new DISCRETE_CSVLOG module that lets you log discrete nodes
as CSV (comma separated values) data.
- Modified discrete core to use the clock specified in the
MDRV_SOUND_ADD line. If the clock is specified as 0, then the
discrete emulation will default to the audio sample rate clock.
- Tweaked Phoenix Effect 2 sound to be more accurate matching
oscilliscope data. Changed the Phoenix discrete clock rate to
a fixed rate of 120000 allowing the simulation to be more
accurate with less alaising noise at the cost of speed.
- Fixed the bug in the DISCRETE_NOTE module that produced notes
1 count off.
Added support for registers that are not to be displayed in the
register list. This is useful for registers like AX on i386, so that
AX can be used in expressions but not represented on the register
list. Simply precede the register name with '~' to prevent display.
[Nathan Woods, Aaron Giles]
Added support for the various x86 8-bit and 16-bit derived
registers, as hidden registers in the i386 core. [Nathan Woods]
Fixed background music in ESB. Updated IRQ frequency and divider to
match the schematics. [Mathis Rosenhauer]
Improved dip switches for rocktrv2. [Chaneman]
Separated the allocation of graphics data from the decoding. This fixes
the crashes that were introduced in u4, and will allow for decoding
progress to be reported eventually. [Aaron Giles]
Made a clean-up pass over all the makefiles. rules.mak is gone now,
replaced by cpu.mak and sound.mak. mame.mak has been reorganized. All
the makefiles are now commented and should be easier to follow.
Rewrote artwork scaling function to compute accurate sum over all
contributing pixels. This produces better results when scaling high
resolution artwork down to lower resolutions. Kept existing bilinear
filter for scaling low resolution art to higher resolutions.
New games added or promoted from NOT_WORKING status
Hidden Catch (World) [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
Fortress 2 Blue Arcade [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
New clones added
Several more NeoGeo bootlegs [Razoola, David Haywood]
Jumbo Ozaki Super Masters Golf (Japan) [Team Japump]
Miss Puzzle (Nudes)
