sensor. Details are written in source code. [Enik Land]

- [SMS] Added an option to play SegaScope (3D-Glasses) games without a
seizure: mount any game supporting 3-D in Master System I drivers,
enter Driver Configuration menu and turn on SegaScope. At this point,
a new option 'Binocular Hack' appears, which removes the flickering in
one or both the lens screens (remember that you can enable lens views by
selecting the Segascope views from the Video Options menu). The option
is turned off by default, being inaccurate [Enik Land, Fabio Priuli]

purtroppo c'erano pure stati ulteriori progressi (ad es. sull'n64 che torna a funzionare sia su CPU a 32 che a 64 bit), ma purtroppo non sono inclusi.

a chi vuole seguire i miglioramenti, suggerisco le build giornaliere di Bobz!

tanto per rendere piu' succulenta l'attesa del MESS 0.142, magari potete dare un'occhiata ad alcuni dei progressi recenti:

* il mega cd / sega cd ora funziona: vedere http://mamedev.emulab.it/haze/ & http://mamedev.emulab.it/kale/?p=1360

* la PSX comincia a fare andare giochi commerciali (oltre ai demo, che andavano da anni), anche se ci sono ancora dei problemi con i joypad e alcuni giochi non leggono gli input: vedere http://rbelmont.mameworld.info e

* lo sconosciutissimo computer jappo SMC-777 ha ceduto alle fatiche di Kale, ed e' ora emulato quasi perfettamente ( http://mamedev.emulab.it/kale/?p=1365 )
