> Completed renaming of core structures. Most pervasive change was "struct
> tilemap" is now just "tilemap". [Aaron Giles]
>
> Added save state support to the Cinematronics vector games. [Buddabing]
>
> Added blending to the alt tilemap code in psikyosh.c, fixing the final
> boss in Sol Divide. [David Haywood]
>
> Improvements to the Witch/Pinball Champ '95 driver: [Sebasten Hegon]
> * The games now show some graphics (the palette seems OK) and play some
> music and sounds.
> * Since the controls are not yet figured out completely, they are still
> mapped as dipswitches.
> * An NVRAM reset is required the first time you launch Witch (via the
> associated dipswitch). Pinball Champ seems to automatically do this.
> * The sound part required some patching in sound/es8712.c. I disabled
> the hardcoded inconditional looping, and made the sound start when
> writing at offset 0x06 (cf patch). vmetal does not seem to be affected.
> * As far as gameplay is concerned, the ball will freeze (in game and
> demo mode), and I don't know why. The video hardware is not completely
> figured out and may be the culprit.
> * The coin in/out mecanism needs some work too.
>
> Some improvements to Jolly Card: [Roberto Fresca]
> * Added extra hardware info (pinouts and dips).
> * Added the correct dipswitch to Jolly Card. Hopper and Points/pulse not
> tested due to preliminary driver state. The rest are working properly.
> Remember to delete the nvram and reinitialize to see some changes.
> * Added almost the same dipswitch to Magic Card II (Bulgaria).
>
> Significant changes to the save state system: [Aaron Giles]
> * Added alternate save state pre-/post-load function types that take
> integer or pointer parameters. Updated several sound cores and other
> files to take advantage of this.
> * Made state handler registrations track like other scoped resources
> (timers, memory) so that registrations can occur as late as
> MACHINE_INIT time.
> * Added logic to detect registrations after MACHINE_INIT time and prevent
> saves in that case.
> * Added logic to detect when CPUs or sound chips haven't registered
> anything to save/load. When this happens, info is logged to error.log
> and saves/loads are disallowed.
> * Allocated timers are now automatically saved and restored as part of
> the save state. The global time is now restored as well as a bunch of
> CPU execution state. This should produce more reliable restores.
> * Added logic to defer saves until all anonymous timers have cleared. If
> a driver uses many anonymous timers it may not be possible to ever
> successfully save, so the operation will time out after one second.
> * Before restoring, the machine is now reset. This gives a more
> consistent environment for the load to occur.
> * Re-enabled save state support for YM2151.
> * Added save state support to the classic Namco sound system.
> * Added save state support to the samples sound system.
> * Removed anonymous timer usage in machine/scramble.c.
