News & Communication / Forum Upgrade
« on: 14 April 2012, 13:53 »
Last night i've done a big and great upgrade to the forum, actually you will not notice any difference but the news will appear soon.

I apologize for the inconvenience that may have occurred during the night but I assure you it's worth it.

I urge all members to report to me any kind of problem found.

TYAA, Simone.

Hi all, these days I realized that the video collection for MAME Plus XT are not updated for a long time and need to be revitalized.
So, i decided to start from a good base and i've converted all CrashTest Collection videos from MNG to AVI format and renamed all the videos to be used whit MAME 0.145.

I also started the production of the missing videos respecting the characteristics of Crashtest Collection.

In the coming days I will start to publish the first packs of the new videos collection.

My motivation to continue the production is strong but in the absence of feedback from users will assess whether to continue or not.

So anyone interested please reply to this post with their own assessments and recommendations that will be taken seriously by me.

Tnks, Simone.

Source Changes
--------------
Change DirectInput joystick acquisition method to be non exclusive.
[bdam]

toaplan2.c: Correct the video (character layer) offset for 1945 Part-2
(Chinese hack of Battle Garegga) [Dave Haywood]

dc: Fix the maple hookup and controllers and add the missing maple irq
[O. Galibert]

galaxia.c: Improved colors and hooked up cvs stars circuit. [hap]

Hooked up TMS9928 and PIA devices to Baby Pac-Man video CPU, gives
some gfx if you press the service switch [Angelo Salese]

pgm.c: Continued refactoring of the protections, including improved
notes.  Moved some code into the states and split states by protection
type.  [David Haywood]

Set the correct cpu in mpu5.c driver and split a few alternate
revisions into clone sets.  [David Haywood]

Decrypted the rest of the gambling sets in igs_m027.c.  No further
advancements in visible emulation to report, though.  [iq132]

Redumped sound roms in funcube2 and funcube3 [Guru, Yasuhiro Ogawa]

Improved irqs in Little Robin, and added preliminary sound to it
[Angelo Salese]

model2.c: Added the I/O Controller rom (Z80 based) for Rail Chase 2
[Brian Troha, The Dumping Union]

Converted gamtor.c to use VGA device (doesn't work though due of a
weird banking problem) [Angelo Salese]

m68k: add preliminary on-board peripherals to 68307 and 68340

SDL: Fix formatting of chdman man page [wallyweek]

Allow compilation with compatible system-installed versions of libjpeg
and libflac [wallyweek, R. Belmont]

Solved the remaining issues with Raiden 2's sprite decryption.
[Andreas Naive]

Major driver modernization changes [Miodrag Milanovic]
- Added 4th parameter to all address maps
- Added missing state classes
- Removed ADDRESS_MAP_MODERN define

rastan.c: Add dipswitch locations to the Rastan sets. [Brian Troha]

namcos21.c: Added Namco game prefix to the Winning Run 91 set. Added
minor documentation about the System21B two board stack. [Brian Troha]

nmk16.c: Fixes some issues and cleaned up the video sources a bit
[trap15]

Fixed ymf271.c core timer allowing for greater accuracy. [Sonikos]

BFM Scorpion 4 Hardware:  [David Haywood]
 * General update which fleshes out some of the 68307 code (not 100%
    correct hookups, just improved logging and enough to get us
    somewhere).
 * Added various devices to the SC4 emulation, added a default layout
    showing the VFD, to which most of the earlier games will now write
    'Initializing'.  Timers and other devices still need to be
    implemented properly before they actually initialize.
 * Put the actual SC4 hardware emulation in drivers/bfm_sc4h.c so that
    it doesn't get lost in the swamp of sets (scrolling through a file
    is quite hard when it's almost entirely set definitions)

mirax, miraxa (mirax.c) [stephh] :
 * Fixed Dip Switches and Inputs (after verification of the Z80 code)

Implemented flip screen support to Mirax [Angelo Salese]

galdrvr.c: Added preliminary protection emulation to Monster Zero.
[hap]

Moved all drivers to using the paletteram helpers defined in the
driver_device base class. The palette base is now specified via an
AM_SHARE of "paletteram" or "paletteram2". The driver_device base
class now finds these pointers and places them in
m_generic_paletteram_8/_16/_32 and m_generic_paletteram2_8/_16/_32.
[Aaron Giles]

Removed machine.generic.paletteram*, and machine.generic entirely.
Removed AM_BASE_GENERIC/AM_SIZE_GENERIC as they don't apply anymore.
[Aaron Giles]

Changed required_/optional_shared_ptr to support set_target with base
and size for manually configuring a shared pointer, and a new allocate
method for dynamically allocating (and registering the memory for save
states). [Aaron Giles]

Converted memory_private to memory_manager and moved global memory
operations into methods on it. Converted the less-popular cases over
in drivers that used them, leaving the bank management APIs global for
now. [Aaron Giles]

Add logic to ensure that shared pointers are checked to be of the
right width. The primary upshot is that if you declare
AM_SHARE("paletteram") in an 8-bit memory map, then only
m_generic_paletteram_8 will be populated, and m_generic_paletteram_16
will be NULL. But it applies to all required_/optional_shared_ptrs
declared, so make sure they are of the right type. [Aaron Giles]

Added code to cdrom.c to compute and verify ECC codes for mode 1/2
sectors. [David Haywood]

Added CD compressor template which separates subcode data from sector
data, removes redundant ECC data prior to compression, and uses
separate compressors for each part. Defined LZMA and ZLib CD
compressors based on this and made them the default for CDs.
[Aaron Giles]

Redumped sprites rom of lhzb2 [Guru]

Decrypted sprites in lhzb. Decrypted tiles and palette in lhzb2 and
slqz2. Added inputs and memory maps in these games, pending protection
simulation [Luca Elia]

Move driver list/enumerator to new file drivenum.c/.h. Move
game_driver definition and constants to new header gamedrv.h. [Aaron
Giles]

wldarrow.c: Added service inputs, allowing battery RAM to be
initialized in test mode, making the games close to playable. [hap]

namcos10: Fix banking for Mr. Driller 2, first stab at the encryption
[O. Galibert]

misc sc4/68307 updates + prelim peripheral hookups, allows most sc4
sets to run their sound rom checks [David Haywood]

rastan.c: Cleaned up Parent/Child order. Corrected ROM names and added
additional information / notes. [Brian Troha]

Source Changes
--------------
Converted LR35902 cpu core to c++.  [Wilbert Pol]

Fixed swapped romsets between doncdoon and kurufev [Angelo Salese]

SDL: support unofficial (not in the OSD class) num_processors API used
by chdman.  Allows chdman to use multiple cores/processors on
non-Windows. [R. Belmont]

naomi: corrected PIC number information for starseek [Guru]

CPS-1 update [Team CPS-1]:
 * Added some notes and done some documentation fixes.
 * Expanded and updated games table in video\cps1.c
 * Removed the notes about LW-13.10D ROM in forgottnu and RT_23.13B
    ROM in wonder3, since current dumps are confirmed as good.
 * Fixed qad labels and confirmed pcb infos.
 * Fixed ROMs labels, added pcb locations and a better documentation
   about sub-revisions. Renamed some romsets to use revision codes.

Fix for potential driver conflicts with same named machine states
between MAME and MESS.  [David Haywood]

megatech.c: Implemented outputs for the time limit alarm sound and
screen flash. [bdam]

undrfire.c: Implement outputs for undrfire and cbombers.  Lamps, gun
recoil, and wheel vibration are implemented. [bdam]

Fixed colors in senjyo.c driver (mostly noticeable with senjyo
background colors) [Tsuyoshi Hasegawa]

68k: add 68301/68307 aliases for better documentation [David Haywood]

ins8250 - Support for the 16550 fifo [Carl]

viper: Added main board DS2430 eeprom and code1d dongle eeprom. [Guru]

viper: Fixed some IDE parameters to allow HDD games to boot again.
[Ville Linde]

Various improvements to Popo Bear, game is somehow playable with
various video and sound glitches [Angelo Salese]

namcos23: Enable work queues for a substantial framerate boost in 3D
scenes [O. Galibert]

Added redumped Area 51: Site 4 CHD (a51site4a).  [ninjakid]

bfm_sc1.c:  [James Wallace]
 * First pass of splitting out *all* of Scorpion 1 roms into clones so
    that proper testing can begin.
 * Identified some duplicates and 'premerged' versions of split ROM
    files.  So while there are more 'games', the number of ROMs has
    actually decreased.

m6502.c: Fixed OAL illegal m6502 instruction to pass Acid5200 test.
[Wilbert Pol]

Formalized the Votrax SC-01 device. Implemented the full set of
digital logic from the patent, including the timing circuit,
transition circuit, glottal generator, and noise source. Some unknowns
still exist with regards to clocking, due to contradictory statements
in the patent, but as it stands now, all parameters are fetched and
processed, phonemes are requested, and in theory all that remains is
for someone with analog sound experience to simulate the filters on
the output. For now, you just get the raw glottal pulse mixed with the
noise signal based on the vocal and fricative amplitudes, which is
enough to show progress, but hardly a pleasing result just yet.
[Aaron Giles, Lord Nightmare, Olivier Galibert]

Converted gottlieb r1 and r2 sound boards into full-on devices, using
the recently-added mixer interface. All sound outputs are redirected
to the new sound device itself, and then the consuming driver can
route the new sound device's outputs as appropriate. The Votrax chip
has been hooked up properly, with a crude guess at the variable
clocking. Current Votrax emulation is turned off, but it can be
enabled by changing USE_FAKE_VOTRAX to 0 in gottlieb.h. [Aaron Giles]

Added Driver display in both the game select UI as well as the
gameinfo screens which should prove helpful.  [Tafoid]

chdman: Correct processing of GDI files, add ability to extractcd to
.gdi, verified perfect checksum round-tripping on .GDI files.
[R. Belmont]

Rework libflac to play nicer with MAME's build system; should fix
compile problems on certain configrations based on suggestions by
Tsuruchiyo Nitro [R. Belmont]

k054539: Modernize [O. Galibert]

PowerPC: properly mirror SO bit from XER into CR0 [R. Belmont]

ioport: Make the compile time less insane [O. Galibert]

ioport: Support obsolete gcc versions [O. Galibert]

When copying CHDs, preserve the flag that indicates whether the
metadata is included in the SHA1. When creating LD CHDs, don't use a
checksum on the AVLD metadata, like we did before. Fixes recompression
of laserdisc CHDs. [Aaron Giles]

Refactored YM3526 to use devcb. [Curt Coder]

Create new devices buffered_spriteram<n>_device, which manage buffered
spriteram. Removed core support for legacy buffered spriteram, and
updated all drivers to use the new devices instead. [Aaron Giles]

Removed required/optional_shared_size helpers. Instead the existing
required/optional_shared_ptr helpers now have a bytes() method that
can be used to query the size of the shared region. [Aaron Giles]

ymf271: Timer setup fix [trap15]

votrax: Analog path [O. Galibert]

tms57002: Modernize [O. Galibert]

Various i386, x87 and PIC fixes. [Carl]

neodrvr.c: Add program roms to Metal Slug 5 PCB. [Guru]

Neo-Geo documentation update [Johnboy]:
 * Added SNK development boards
 * Updated MVS motherboard list
 * Updated sengoku2, zupapa, mslug, neodrift, ctomaday, pbobbl2n and
    jockeygp chip info
 * Added correct product ID codes for vliner and jockeygp
 * Updated \hash\neogeo.xml accordingly

Fix for aleck64 crash on exit [Oliver Stoneberg]

dec8.c improvements [stephh] :
 * lastmisn*, shackled, breywood, gondo, makyosen, garyoret, ghostb*,
    meikyuh*, csilver*, oscar*, srdarwin*, cobracom* : fixed Dip
    Switches and Inputs (after verification of the M6809/HD6309 code);
    coinage for games without real MCU is still a guess though
 * lastmisn*, csilver*, srdarwin* : added coinage simulation based on
    the Dip Switches
 * garyoret : use fake MCU based on 'gondo' instead of simulating it

PowerPC: Corrected DIVW divide-by-zero crashes, flags, and corner-case results [R. Belmont]
