I program for Channel F and a few versions ago (Currently checking out MAME 0.231 (LLP64) ) a bunch of registers were removed from the debugger in the left part of the window.
R16-R63 are gone from the list which makes things harder if you want to look for bugs.

While doing so $hexnumber was replaced with H'hexnumber', I thought $ or possibly 0x was the go-to way of writing hexadecimal numbers?
I have documents from the 70's that uses H'xxx' notation, as well as B'xxxxxxx' for binary and O'xx' for octal numbers - I thought it was long gone...?

Who has the power to change it back?

IMO, if people actually doing assembly programming on the system don't like the revised debugger semantics then it's a problem. The pseudo registers should be put back, at bare minimum.

Could something like that be a Mame.ini option, machine config option, or even a command line switch? (please insert brilliant ideas here to make it easily selected by user preference)

just a thought
