0.112
-----

Happy 10th Anniversary! Today's release marks 10 years since the
original release of 0.1. After 10 years, hundreds of developers,
thousands of games, and tens of thousands (if not more) of hours of
hard work, MAME development is still going strong. Thanks to everyone
who has supported this project over the years!

Also a big thanks goes out to everyone who has contributed. Although
I am certain there are some people left out of this list, it should
give an indication of just how many people truly care about preserving
arcade history:

==========================================================================

0.111u6

Source Changes
--------------

Fixed the data fetch and scrolling calculation for almost all video
modes in the Amiga driver. [Ernesto Corvi]

Emulated the trench circuit in Space Encounters. [Adam Bousley]

Added win_output_debug_string_utf8(); a UTF-8 wrapper for
OutputDebugString(). Changed code to use it. [Nathan Woods]

Fixed the disassembly, operation, and cycle timing of many Thumb
instructions in the ARM7 core. [MooglyGuy]

Defined new osd core function osd_is_absolute_path(). Changed behavior
of core fileio so that absolute paths are identified and search paths
ignored in that case. [Nathan Woods]

Improved validity check for coinage order so that it prints out the
correct order if an error is detected. [Ernesto Corvi]

Fixed clocks and other details in Dream World based on new
measurements. [David Haywood, Guru]

Implemented video circuits in the Midway 8080 driver based on
schematics. Note that this affected the visible area, so overlays will
need to be adjusted. Standardized the visible area across all games.
Implemented Phantom II cloud generator. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Changed the contract of the tilemap_create() call so that it is
guaranteed to succeed or die trying. Cleaned up code paths that
checked the result of this operation to be simpler as a result.
[Atari Ace, Aaron Giles]

Added preliminary support for the built-in effects DSP in the SCSP,
which lots of games use for reverb, QSound, and other effects.
[ElSemi]

Removed archaic i8080_EXACT flag from the 8085 core. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Updated Midway 8080 driver to use properly computed video timings and
scanline interrupts. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Fixed assertion in MPU4 driver. Fixed the mechanical meter operation,
enabling coin entry in Connect 4. [James Wallace]

Added mappings for break and pause keys. [Dirk Best]

Incorporated changes to MESS CPU cores to fix asserts and improve
Z80GB emulation. [Nathan Woods, Wilbert Pol]

Correctly connected sound IRQ in GX400/Nemesis driver. [R. Belmont]

Rewrote the SN76477 emulator from scratch. The main difference between
the old one and the new one is that it is based on measurements from a
real chip. Also the emulator is fully analog, meaning that
timings/frequencies, etc. are based on voltage levels. This gives a
much more true-to-life emulation where the weird behavior of the real
chip comes emulated for free. The code itself is also a lot simpler
and more understandable. [Zsolt Vasvari, Derrick Renaud]

Cleaned up stray variables from the crosshair drawing removal. Also
removed some orphaned function declarations. [Oliver Stoneberg]

Added the missing volume and frequency controls to the Berzerk driver
and s14001a core. Fixed the issue with random words being spoken
instead of the proper ones. Word is now latched at the proper time.
[Lord Nightmare]

Implemented flickering of the strobe light in Space Encounters, to be
eventually connected with artwork. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Changed driver_add/find/remove functions to fatalerror if they cannot
find their targets. [Aaron Giles]

Added support for screenless drivers. [Aaron Giles, Nathan Woods]

Fixed a couple of errors introduced in the OKI6295 pin shuffling.
[David Haywood]

Cleaned up DIP switches and added documentation to the Outrun driver.
[Brian Troha]

Fixed sound clock frequency in the NMG5 driver. [Brian Troha]

Fixed sound clock frequency in Night Slasher. [Sonikos]

Updated Sega System 16/18 drivers to be mono, and swapped button 1/2
to match instruction card. [Corrado Tomaselli]

Moved some of the tool sources to a new subdirectory tools.
[Aaron Giles]

Tweaked the main makefile to better support parallel builds.
[Aaron Giles]

Removed line array from mame_bitmap. Converted dozens of drivers over
to using BITMAP_ADDR macros instead. [Aaron Giles]

Changed automatic crosshairs so they are not quite so automatic.
They now need to be explicitly specified by the driver in the input
ports. Also changed the PORT_CROSSHAIR macro to take a shorter form
of the axis name. Updated all lightgun drivers to have this macro in
its default state. [Aaron Giles]

Added sliders for debugging crosshair positioning (debug build only).
[Aaron Giles]

Changed xevious to use irq0_assert_line instead of irq0_pulse_line
to prevent it from dropping interrupts. [Aaron Giles]

Changed Gorf to use HOLD_LINE instead of PULSE_LINE for scanline
interrupts. The timing is still off, but the game runs now.
[Aaron Giles]

Fixed time H/V position reporting during the first frame of execution
using the new video routines. [Aaron Giles]

Source Changes
--------------

Fixed a 6502 register naming bug, and fixed a size bug in the
SC61860 disassembler. [Nathan Woods]

Added built-in overlay layout for Crash. [Mr. Do]

Added save state support to Gyruss. [Buddabing]

Fixed missing sound interfaces from the MESS sound core merge.
[Nathan Woods]

Fixed several duplicated global variable names, removed unreferenced
items from header files, and added header files for several drivers.
[Atari Ace]

Changed debug console code to use auto_malloc and to detect attempts
at registering callbacks after initialization time. [Nathan Woods]

Fixed kof2003 bootleg code to work on big-endian systems. [R. Belmont]

Centralized some common Windows utility routines in new module
winutil.c. [Nathan Woods]

Cleaned up a few drivers to use input_port_dword_*_r. [smf]

Cleaned up memory maps in the MPU4 and BFM drivers. Redesigned the
MPU4 code so that the DRIVER_INIT only needs to take an address in
the ROM for the lookup table for CHR generation to be done.
[James Wallace]

Updated built-in expat code to version 2.0. [Atari Ace]

Fixed sound samples in Indian Battle. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Added state saving to mhavoc. Also fixed sparkling vectors so
slowdowns and vector list overflows can be expected. It looks much
nicer, though. [Mathis Rosenhauer]

Removed XORs from almost all CPS2 games in place of proper emulation
of the encryption. [Nicola Salmoria]

Added an assertion to prevent usage of pia_set_input_[a|b]() when
input reading callbacks are specified. [Nathan Woods]

Fixed flip screen switch and changed COIN3 to SERVICE1 in the contra.c
driver. [Canim]

Cleand up and fixed DIP switches and inputs for the nmg5 driver.
[stephh]

Rewrote Z80 interrupt handling to avoid a bad bug in the post-EI
interrupt signalling. [Aaron Giles]

Added documentation to the esd16, afega, cave, unico, vamphalf, and
yunsun16 drivers. [Brian Troha]

Changed behavior in chdman so that a 0 sector size means the default.
[Aaron Giles]

Updated several video drivers (amiga, n64, ppu2c0x, psx, stvvdp2,
tia, v9938) to use the new BITMAP_ADDR* macros instead of using the
line[] array. [Nathan Woods]

Some additional Midway 8080 B&W driver fixes: [Zsolt Vasvari]
- added PORT_CONDITION where needed
- added PORT_CONFNAME entries to the 3 baseball games and Space
Invaders
- save state support for all games
- fixed typo and a bug with the Sea Wolf lamps

Fixed a minor problem with sound clipping in the s14001a.
[Lord Nightmare]

Fixed PRNG noise in the TMS5110/5220 code and added signal wrapping
to match the patent. [Lord Nightmare]

Cleaned up usage of auto_bitmap_alloc() now that it is guaranteed not
to fail. [Aaron Giles, Atari Ace]

Added sound effects emulation to the Berzerk driver. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed font aspect ratio on non-1:1 resolutions. [Aaron Giles]

Added mechanism to cache a binary format of BDF fonts for improved
loading speed. Also added a bit of progress when loading huge BDF
fonts so that you know what's happening. [Aaron Giles]

Removed gross TMS9928a configuration in place of more standard
techniques. Updates the Cliffhanger and sg1000a drivers accordingly.
[Aaron Giles]

Added support for the custom Badlands commands to the LD-V1000
emulation. [Aaron Giles]

Source Changes
--------------

Added support for the Pioneer PR-8210 laserdisc player.
[Ernesto Corvi]

Added two new convenience macros for input ports: PORT_DIPUNUSED and
PORT_DIPUNUSED_DIPLOC. [stephh]

Updated DIP switches in the cave driver and added locations. [stephh]

Improved DIP switches in sbrkout and converted "fake" DIP switches
into configuration switches. [stephh]

Improved DIP switches in Zero Hour. [Mike Ellery]

Added DIP locations to the m90 driver. [Brian Oberholtzer]

Unified the Forgotten Worlds driver with the cps1 driver and
connected the OKI6295 pin control properly. [David Haywood]

Modified the makefile to make it possible to independently specify
symbols generation and optimization levels. [Atari Ace]

Fixed system time counters in the Amiga code. [Ernesto Corvi]

Major rewrite of the Midway 8080 black & white driver, separating it
from the huge 8080bw driver and making the following changes:
[Zsolt Vasvari, Derrick Renaud]

- 'True-to-hardware' emulation of the shifting circuits
- Identified and stubbed sound triggers
- Fixed DIP switches, where necessary (most games)
- Added DIPLOCATION to all switches
- Added watchdog
- Added coin counter
- Added lamp outputs to Sea Wolf, Guided Missile, Space Encounters,
Phantom II, Bowling Alley
- Added stereo sound to Gun Fight, Guided Missile, M-4
- Partial sound emulation in Tornado Baseball, Boot Hill,
Desert Gun, Double Play, Dog Patch, Blue Shark
- Properly emulated shifter circuit in Boot Hill
- Added gun recoil output to Desert Gun
- Added second set of analog controls to Clowns
- Fixed analog controls in Dog Patch
- Added SN76477 sound effect to Space Encounters
- Added non-memory mapped coin counters to Space Invaders,
Blue Shark, and Space Invaders II
- Added proper watchdog times to all the games
- Breadboarded the noise clocks and ensured their frequencies
were correct

Added support for the lamp matrix to the video callback in the
Scorpion 2 driver, and updated lamps and inputs to better fit the
new UI. VFD support has been moved to a configuration switch, as
the output is actually always occurring - the switch mimics the
effect of plugging in or removing the VFD from the control point.
[James Wallace]

Improved sound output in the MediaGX driver. [Ville Linde]

Preliminary emulation of the TSI S14001A speech synthesizer as found
in Berzerk/Frenzy (and also Stern pinballs).
[Lord Nightmare, Kevtris, R. Belmont]

Added missing linescroll effect to Magical Cat Adventure and
Nostradamus. It can be seen in action on the first levels of both
games. [David Haywood]

Minor cleanup of mind-bending codce is the konamigx driver.
[R. Belmont]

Fixed crash in the Sega System 24 driver. [David Haywood]

Added a validity check that input port names are valid UTF-8 strings.
[Nathan Woods]

Improved DIP switches in the tumbleb.c driver. [stephh]

Added a large update to the legionna driver with much more
documentation on the protection and other updates. [Angelo Salese]

Added cdp1869 video emulation to the Cidelsa driver. The games still
don't work due to timing and interrupt issues. [Curt Coder]

Fixed crash in Tao Taido driver. [David Haywood]

Made suprnova RLE rendering safe from out-of-bounds accesses.
[David Haywood]

Many improvements to the Midnight Landing driver, including partial
sound, partial video emulation, and controls. Still not working,
though. [Tomasz Slanina]

Fixed TMS9928 so it recalculates the pattern mask when its
dependancies change so we don't end up in weird half-modes.
[R. Belmont]

Added support in the user interface to render all text assuming it is
UTF-8 encoded. This means that UTF-8 encoded Unicode names can be
used in in-game descriptions, etc. But first you will need a unicode
capable BDF font. [Aaron Giles]

Removed Vista build hacks from windows.mak as they are no longer
necessary. [Aaron Giles]

Removed hacky use of the 'depth' field of mame_bitmaps. Bitmaps are
now allocated with an enumerated 'format' instead. This is internally
translated into bits-per-pixel in a normalized way. Also removed
Machine->color_depth, which was often misused. [Aaron Giles]

Added new macro BITMAP_ADDR that can be used for addressing into
bitmaps. Removed the use of bitmap->line[] in the core code. The
line[] array will eventually be obsoleted, so stop using it.
[Aaron Giles]

Changed operation of plot_pixel, read_pixel, and plot_box. The first
two are now inline functions and the latter just maps to fillbitmap
via another inline function. [Aaron Giles]

Added new required machine driver entry MDRV_SCREEN_FORMAT() which
specifies the bitmap format for the screen. Removed the
VIDEO_RGB_DIRECT and VIDEO_NEEDS_6BITS_PER_GUN flags that used to
determine the bitmap format implicity. [Aaron Giles]

Deprecated the following obsolete machine driver entries:

MDRV_FRAMES_PER_SECOND -> MDRV_SCREEN_REFRESH_RATE
MDRV_VBLANK_DURATION -> MDRV_SCREEN_VBLANK_TIME(TIME_IN_USEC(x))
MDRV_VISIBLE_AREA -> MDRV_SCREEN_VISIBLE_AREA

[Aaron Giles]

Added a new mechanism for rendering the crosshairs on lightgun games.
Crosshairs are automatically rendered if lightgun controllers are
specified; the game no longer has to render them. Any other analog
axis can be configued to use crosshairs via the new PORT_CROSSHAIR
macro. Crosshairs are also now rendered in different colors for
different players, and done as an overlay using the new rendering
system instead of drawing into the game bitmap, which means they no
longer show up on screenshots. If you don't like the built-in
crosshairs, you can make your own. Just call them cross0.png
(player 1), cross1.png (player 2), etc. and place them in the root
of your artwork directory. [Aaron Giles]

Changed F1 crosshair toggle. By default crosshairs are on for all
configured players. Toggling once will turn them all off. Each
sucessive toggle will enable one player at a time until all players
are again visible. [Aaron Giles]

Added support in chd.c for lossy compressors, computing CRCs and other
hashes based on the decompressed output in those cases. Also added

OSD porters take note of the changes to the OSD core routines.


Source Changes
--------------

Added save state support to the tubep driver. [Svante Gerhard]

Added save state support to the steppers module. [James Wallace]

Added the remaining input pins to the SN76477 Interface. If these
pins are constant, they can now be defined in the structure as
opposed to having to call functions in an init routine. Modified all
the drivers that use a 76477. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Removed file I/O functions from osd_tool.h in favor of the ones in
osdepend.h. Updated tools accordingly. Added new flag
OSD_FLAG_CREATE_PATHS to the open command. [Nathan Woods]

Moved OKIM6295 pin 7 state (internal divider) to internal structure.
Updated all drivers to specify pin state when setting the interface.
Added comments for all cases where the original frequency wasn't / 132
or /165 as the real pin state is unknown. [David Haywood]

Updated Toki driver to display visual DIPs for the game.
[Brian Oberholtzer]

Added sprite X flip and removed unneeded hack in wheelfir driver.
[Tomasz Slanina]

Fixed several issues with the new Unicode support. [Nathan Woods]

Changed uimenu.c to allow displaying DP switch banks which have
gaps (unused switches) in them. These switches are now grayed out.
[Zsolt Vasvari]

Another Amiga update: [Ernesto Corvi]
- Fixed blitter in line mode
- Modified Copper to run on odd memory bus cycles
- Fixed screen delay offset when display data fetch is not word
aligned

Fixed cheat searching. [stephh]

Replaced CPS2 CHDs with preliminary decryption function.
[Andreas Naive, Nicola Salmoria]

Added code to validate that banks are only set to point to memory
that has been allocated via auto_malloc(). Currently disabled
pending further review. [Nathan Woods]

Updated input port tokenization for MESS. Added support in MAME
for "configuration" switches which are separate from DIP switches.
These can be used to configure aspects of the game that don't
correspond to DIP switches. Modified pacman.c to use configurations
to control the speedup options. [Nathan Woods, Aaron Giles]

Fixed invalid array access in the taito_l driver. [Atari Ace]

Made a fix minor compiler compatibility tweaks to the source.
[Atari Ace]

Fixed several glitches and crashes related to the input port and
unicode changes from u2. [Aaron Giles]

Separated "core" OSD function definitions to osdcore.h. Added more
extensive documentation. [Aaron Giles]

Created a new library called osdcore, which is now built and linked
to each executable. Moved all definitions of expected components of
osdcore into new header file osdcore.h, and added consistent
documentation for them all. Removed osd_tool.c, and moved the
necessary parts of its functionality into osdcore. [Aaron Giles]

Defined a new set of interfaces for osdcore which creates an
abstract interface for queueing work items to be potentially executed
on a secondary thread. Implemented the Windows versions of these
routines, but have not done any testing yet. [Aaron Giles]

Separated Windows OSD core routines into individual files, as
folows:
windir.c - directory-related core OSD functions
winfile.c - file-related core OSD functions
winmisc.c - miscellaneous core OSD functions
winsync.c - synchronization-related core OSD functions
wintime.c - timing-related core OSD functions
winwork.c - threading-related core OSD functions
[Aaron Giles]

Created new osdmini directory with minimal implementations of all the
OSD core routines. These can be used to stub in functionality or as
a starting point for new ports. [Aaron Giles]

Cleaned up chdman, normalizing its behavior and improving error
reporting. [Aaron Giles]

More updates to the laserdisc emulation, based on more complete
understanding of how the discs are encoded and how they will
eventually be stored. [Aaron Giles]

0.111u2

MAMETesters bugs fixed (there are probably more)
-----------------------
tourtabl0111u1red [Nathan Woods]


Source Changes
--------------

Amiga core system updates: [Ernesto Corvi]
- Updated 6526/8520 CIA to be able to set the value of the SP pin.
This is needed to emulate the Amiga keyboard.
- Updated the custom chips emulation to delay for about 24 cycles
the issuing of interrupts after a write to INTENA or INTREQ.
- Fixed a bug where if INTREQ got cleared programatically, it would
'forget' about pending CIA interrupts, causing the CIA to stop
sending further interrupts.
- Fixed the interrupt delay logic. Now it properly delays firing
the irqs, not the masking/disabling.
- Fixed return value for unused/invalid custom registers reads.
- Added Denise ID custom register to properly identify OCS, ECS and
AGA
- Added reset to custom, autoconfig and cia when a RESET opcode is
found.
- Resetting the custom chips will now clear INTENA, preventing
further interrupts.
- Fixed a bug in the RBF interrupt request code check.
- Fixed a bug on the 6526/8520 CIA that prevented chained counters
from working.
- Added support for the 'blitter-nasty' bit on the blitter. Fixes
many games that displayed wrong graphics.

Hooked up coin counter in Gun Fight. Also connected sounds properly
per schematics. Added proper watchdogs to invaders and invad2ct.
[Derrick Renaud]

Added missing initialization to the TMS5220 RNG. [Lord Nightmare]

Taito JC driver improvements: [Ville Linde]
- Implemented MC68HC11 communications
- Added analog controls via MC68HC11
- Various bug fixes and some new opcodes to the TMS320C51 core
- Moved video hardware emulation to vidhrdw/taitojc.c
- Implemented 3D hardware emulation

Cleaned up the 8080bw sound changes included with u1. [Robert]

Changed 6532riot and tia code to only allow initialization at init
time. [Nathan Woods]

Fixed several bugs in the old System 16 bootleg code. [Mamesick]

Fixed SIM opcode in i8085 emulator. [Tomasz Slanina]

Initial support for Unicode in the core and Windows OSD: [Nathan Woods]
- text file reading/writing now automatically handle UTF-8 conversion
- a number of Windows functions internally manage TCHARs
- new Windows compile-time option UNICODE can be used to build MAME
as a Unicode application (see windows.mak)

Added new visible representation of physical DIP switches for drivers
that have them defined. To see this, just pull up the DIP switch
menu on drivers that have been documented. [Brian Oberholtzer]

Corrected some incorrect DIP switch information in the 1942, toaplan2,
and segag80r drivers. [Brian Oberholtzer]

Added the remaining MESS CPU cores to MAME. They are disabled in the
build, but will be maintained along with the MAME CPU cores as future
changes are made. [Nathan Woods]

Added support for multiple instances of the samples sound system.
[Zsolt Vasvari]

Converted input port definitions from code-based constructors to
data-driven tokenized values. This reduces the overall MAME code size
by a significant amount. Note that the tokenization is a bit
different for 32-bit versus 64-bit builds, so hopefully somebody
with a 64-bit system can verify that it works (mame -listxml should
produce identical results to the 32-bit version).
[Atari Ace, Aaron Giles]

Properly implemented sound interrupts in Night Slashers. [Aaron Giles]

Improved cycle timings in the ARM CPU core. Altered the deco32 CPU
clocks to be more realistic. [Aaron Giles]

Updated copyright dates in header files and docs. [Aaron Giles]

Source Changes
--------------

Added more documentation for the 8080bw driver. It describes the ports
and bits for those games with no sound. In most cases, sample sounds
have been attached, in order to assist with further development. The
games modified are: invrvnge/invrvnga, rollingc, spcenctr, gunfight,
m4, gmissile, schasrcv, 280zzzap, lagunar, lupin3, phantom2, blueshrk,
desertgu, ballbomb, yosakdon/yosakdoa, and shuttlei. Two games were
marked NO_SOUND although they actually do have sound: these are cosmo
and dogpatch. [Robert]

Moved a chunk of platform specific code out of chdcd.c and romcmp.c
into the osd_tool code. [Nathan Woods]

Widespread cleanup of disassemblers and CPU interfaces across the
project: [Giuseppe Gorgoglione]
- removed from many disassemblers the dependency on eainfo.h. The
output produced by those disassemblers has been checked to be the
same as before.
- extensively rewrote the 6309dasm.c and 6809dasm.c disassemblers.
- fixed minor bugs in the v810 and hd6309 interfaces.
- removed m68000\cpudefs.h. This was used by the old assembly m68000
core. Removed from m68kmame.c and m68kmame.h as well many
references to the old core (e.g A68K0, A68K2, etc.)
- properly typedeffed the cpuinfo union, this affects cpuintrf.h and
many, many, other files
- converted 8051dasm.c, m65ce02.c and t11dasm.c to use
cpuintrf_temp_str() instead of local string pools
- moved the info.s = cpuintrf_temp_str() initialization to:
activecpu_get_info_string(), cpunum_get_info_string() and
cputype_get_info_string(). This allows us to remove tons of
info->s = cpuintrf_temp_str() statements from the xxx_get_info()
accessors of every CPU core, making them more readable

Fixed a problem with the chirp tables of both the tms5220 and the
tms5110. Also backported Jarek's PRNG implementation from tms5110.c
to tms5220.c so it no longer relies on rand(). [Lord Nightmare]

Fixed two bugs in the m68000 core: [Alex Jackson]
- fixed a miscompilation issue with GCC4 that was first noticed in
Altered Beast but also affected Moonwalker, Galaxy Force 2, and
probably many other games.
- fixed the core's compile-time self-configuration so that it uses
the same code paths on LP64 platforms (64-bit Linux, etc.) as on
LLP64 (64-bit Windows) and 32-bit platforms.

Added save state support to the magmax driver. [Svante Gerhard]

Fixed music speed in perfrman. [Mamesick]

Fixed implementation of da_a instruction in i8051 core. [Special LIU]

Third round of numerous improvements to the cheat engine: [ShimaPong]
NOTE : delete old command code and save it newly in Options menu.
* operation:
- Added preliminary direct Program Space accessor.
You can hack custom handling ROM code (eg encrypted segas16b.c
games). But it has several problems.
And added watchpoint display for Program Space.
- Added new operation, "Write if Match".
The cheat engine writes value only when read value matched
reserved value which is stored in extend data field.
* search menu:
- Added 3rd search mode, "Minimum Search Mode". It's more simple
than Classic Mode. Also added search memory initialize with
ui_clear key and extended value edit with arrow key in this mode.
- Added "View Last Results", "Restore Result", "Region Selection"
items to the advanced search menu.
* result viewer:
- Don't open this menu to avoid MAME crash in case of
no search region like sms.c in HazeMD.
- Added quick page switch by left/right arrow key.
Also changed functions for several keys in this menu.
- Improved no result page skip. But incomplete because
doesn't skip first or last page even if no result.
* code loading:
- Ignored to load old format code by default. If you need to
load, choose "Load Old Format" item in Options menu.
* input:
- Fixed activation key save on Enable/Disable menu.
- Fixed key handling for watch code addition from watch list
menu to cheat list. Now it works with ctrl + save cheat
key on the watch list menu.
- Enabled ui_clear key in editing a value (clear data)
and on watch list menu (reset all watchpoints).
* option:
- Added preliminary Debug option to check internal data.
- Added command code save. You can save command code with
save cheat key in Options menu.
* others:
- Added quick menu switch. It is assigned to ui_zoom in/out keys.
This function works in Enable/Disable, Add/Edit, Search and
Watchpoint menus.
- Rearranged several items on the menus.

Converted some isolated parts of the Win32 OSD code to use 'TCHAR'
strings rather than simple 'char' strings. [Nathan Woods]

Removed rom patches in the airbustr driver; hooked up watchdog
instead. [David Haywood]

Reimplemented one-shot timer modes in the 6526 CIA (Amiga) emulation.
[Ernesto Corvi]

Added validity check for zero refresh rates. [Nathan Woods]

Fixed DIPswitch defaults for Quartet and Quartet 2. [Alex Jackson]

Fixed incorrectly drawn graphics in troangel. [Robiza]

Fixed a few more assertions lurking with the new stricter disassembler
checks. [Aaron Giles]

Patched some protection checks in Funny Strip and Rebus. Neither game
works yet. [Tomasz Slanina]

Changed -createconfig to output the INI file using mame_file rather
than FILE. [Nathan Woods]

Improved graphics emulation in the tetriunk driver. [Tomasz Slanina]

Fixed copy/paste bug in the Irem sound hardware dealing with MSM5235
chips. [Mamesick]

Fixed visible area in Toki. [Mamesick]

Added new Toshiba TMP90840/TMP91640 CPU core. [Luca Elia]

Moved msm6242 real time clock to its own file. [Luca Elia]

Implemented blitter rom banking in dynax driver. [Luca Elia]

Added sound in Rapid Hero (samples banking is incorrect). [Luca Elia]

Fixed reset problem in the tia emulation. [Nathan Woods]

Adding remaining MESS sound cores to the core MAME sources.

The first MAME I used was MacMAME for PowerPC on my brand-new PowerMac G4 running MacOS 9 back in 2000. Now I'm running SDLMAME 0.112 on a MacBook. It's amazing how far MAME has come. It emulates so many more games, and so much more accurately.

Newbies... I started with the first version of MAME for Mac, version 0.4 in 1997 smile

And now I'm using it on my new MacBook, too, and never cease to be amazed by reliving childhood memories wherever I feel to.

My first version was around .26 or so. MacMAME hadn't caught up with vector game emulation, so I was still using Vectorama for awhile.

It'd be nice to see a 10th anniversary release for MacMAME. (Note - there's no "thoughtful pondering" smiley thing on the board anymore.)

- Nathan "Sturm". (sigh) Still... nice to be mentioned.

(MacMAME.net's 9th Anniversary is coming up in a couple of months. I suppose I should do something for that.)

Brad said something on the list about a 10th anniversary MacMAME but I guess he's been too busy to actually push it out.

I don't know my first version but I know it was in 97, so it's probably around there. I was doing a thesis for an assembly language class and decided to do it on emulation. Funny enough that's what got me into this whole scene.

I'm not sure which version I first used, but I know it was in 1998. I can remember how amazing that discovery was... I also remember waiting for each new update with crazy anticipation! What new games might be added?!? Ahh... the good 'ol days. wink

And yes, I see the irony of talking about the good 'ol days of MacMAME... since it in turn represents the good ol' days of arcade games. Hmm, nostalgia... of nostalgia. wink

I remember doing a search on my Mac Performa 631 in 1997 for arcade games or something like that and I ran across this MAME stuff. It took me a while to figure out what this was all about but when I stumbled across the entire EMU scene, I was blown away. I have spent the last one third of my life following MAME and I still tell people it's one of the top 5 reasons they need to get a computer.
It's hard to believe 10 years have passed but I am proud to have contributed financially and in other ways (artwork, etc) to help out.
I thought I was so happy when they emulated The Pit, then I was amazed when they added Thief and some very rare games but now I am blown away by the high quality bezels being added weekly.

In fact, I was playing MacMAME while I was waiting to be sent into a courtroom a couple weeks ago for jury duty and someone asked me how I was able to play this arcade game on my computer. I told them I was playing it with MacMAME and they asked how to get it and I showed them. The person was pretty happy and anxious to get out of there ASAP.
