Diff time, heres whats new:

    MAMETesters Bugs Fixed
  • slither094u1red [Aaron Giles, with a hint from MASH]
  • sf2accp2070u5red [Aaron Giles]
  • nemesis097u1gre1 [Mamesick]
  • nemesis097u1gre2 [Mamesick]

    Source Changes
  • Changed how perodic timers are defined. Previously, you would specify a number which was interpreted either as Hz (if less than 50000) or as nanoseconds (if greater than 50000). Now, the time is specified as a period and you use the standard TIME_IN_HZ or TIME_IN_NS macros. [Aaron Giles]
  • Turned on address error checking in the 68000 core. This slows things down a bit but is more accurate and allows correct behavior of a couple of badly-programmed games. [Aaron Giles]
  • Fixed several issues with address error checking in the 68000 core. [Aaron Giles]
  • Fixed 68000 bug that treated 8-bit branches with $FF offsets as illegal, rather than allowing them and generating an address error. [Aaron Giles]
  • Created a new header file mamecore.h, which contains the core common useful macros and typedefs that were scattered throughout the header files. Also added endian swapping macros from MESS. [Aaron Giles]
  • Fully deprecated the use of cpu_setbank(), which was long ago replaced with memory_set_bankptr(). [Aaron Giles]

    Did some major cleanup on the MCR drivers [Aaron Giles]
  • - Implemented Super Sound I/O interrupts properly.
  • - Filled out all memory maps according to schematics.
  • - Fixed sound sync with various sound boards, allowing for kludges to be removed from Power Drive and Star Guards.
  • - Re-verified all connections from wiring diagrams.
  • - Documented various lamp and driver boards from the games.

  • Some makefile tweaks to hopefully catch variable declaration problems that kept creeping into builds. Switched gcc compiler standard to gnu89. [Atari Ace]
  • Removed usage of dirent.h APIs on Windows builds. [Atari Ace]
  • Corrected resolution to 256x256 in Stagger I, Red Hawk, Sen Jin - Guardian Storm. All other games still have old visible area that is correct for them. [Mamesick]
  • Fixed crash in Volfied and Operation Wolf due to improper timer usage.
    [Nicola Salmoria]
  • Fixed one of the TC360 sprite blending modes (used in Pulirula round 2 and Liquids Kids attract mode). [Bryan McPhail]
  • Fixed sprite/tilemap placement in Legend of Kage. [Phil Stroffolino]

    PowerPC core update: [Nathan Woods]
  • - Added infrastructure to generate DSI and ISI exceptions
  • - Made the lbz/lbzu/lbzux/lbzx instructions properly clear out the high 24 bits in the results
  • - Added SRR0 and SRR1 to the debug view
  • Did some cleanups in the vamphalf.c driver. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
  • Fixed speedbal again, after breaking it in the last update. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
  • Changed Nitro Ball to use the new deco16_tilemap_34_combine_draw function Bryan added some time ago. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
  • Added a sprite wrap around needed in Riot level 2. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
  • Added sound to Dragon Bowl. [Pierpaolo Prazzoli]

    New games added or promoted from NOT_WORKING status

  • Lethal Enforcers [David Haywood]
