unchanged. (Reip)
01601: [Misc.] orbit: Game doesn't start. Watchdog/reset problem?
(Aaron Giles)
01584: [Misc.] exerion, exerionb, exeriont: Assertion (Aaron Giles)
01560: [DIP/Input] turpin: Cannot coin up in either slot. (RansAckeR)

Source Changes
--------------
bbusters: Fixed sprite wrapping -- this is used on the gun calibration
screen, at least. The game still hangs on a black screen after service
mode is turned off. Even exiting MAME and restarting doesn't fix it,
so it's probably a EEPROM issue. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Added Noise Output to the MSM5232 emulation. [Nicola Salmoria]

Added placeholder effects for cymbal and hihat to equites.c. These
will need further work to properly emulate the discrete circuitry.
[Nicola Salmoria]

Cleaned cidelsa driver up to the latest spec. [Curt Coder]

Added NVRAM to Gekisou. Fixed inputs and promoted to working.
[Nicola Salmoria]

Explicitly fixed unmapped handler masks so that we don't report all
unmapped addresses as 0. [Aaron Giles]

Centralized definitions of _WIN32_WINNT. Removed malloc/calloc/
realloc/free link-time overrides; we now rely exclusively on compile-
time overrides. Made a few tweaks toward getting mingw-w64 working,
but there are still linker issues. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed assertions in skullxbo and exerion. [Aaron Giles]

De-deprecat-ed ui.c. [Aaron Giles]

Changed xmlfile.c to pass in memory handlers to expat so that
our memory overrides are properly managed. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed wbbc97 regression. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Fixed crospang.c regression. Not sure why this needed to be RGB15,
works fine with INDEXED16. [Zsolt Vasvari]

[GTICLUB] Fixed crash. [R. Belmont]

[SCSI] Fixed case when no device exists (e.g. running the sys573 BIOS
directly). [R. Belmont]

Got most of the Konami PPC games running again. [R. Belmont]

Fixed crash running "kviper" BIOS. [R. Belmont]

Changed crystal.c from RGB15 to RGB32. RGB15 is not enough bits to
hold the 5-6-5 colorspace. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Updated astrof.c to use the timer device. [Zsolt Vasvari]

dgpix and eolith: Converted to INDEXED16. Removed temp bitmaps.
Changed ugly recursive video RAM code. [Zsolt Vasvari]

ddz: Removed RGB15 -- it's a "skeleton" driver, so why have it?
[Zsolt Vasvari]

video\generic.c: Added PALETTE_INIT functions for common 16-bit RGB
patterns. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Converted f-32, kinst, lethalj, ultrsprt, gamecstl, taitowlf to use
INDEXED16. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Added option in MC6845 to programatically set the clock pin. This is
needed by at least one MESS driver. Added
mc6845_set_hpixels_per_column() for the Hercules gfx adapter.
[Zsolt Vasvari]

Fixed video timing in xtheball. Still don't know why it changed
recently, but the new parameters reproduce the old values.
[Aaron Giles]

Removed unnecessary assert in video.c that broke screenless games.
[Dirk Best]

Changed the zombraid gun input ports to work with the calibrated
settings. [Derrick Renaud]

Fixed malzak2 from crashing. [Zsolt Vasvari]

Fixed graphics ROMs in gnga. [Cesare Falco]

Added validity check to ensure input port tags don't have duplicates.
Fixed several drivers where there were duplicates. [Aaron Giles]

Corrected clocks on Cabal bootleg. [Corrado Tomaselli]

blockhl.c, blockout.c: Added dip locations, fixed unknown dip
switches. [RansAckeR]

Removed improper use of PERIODIC_INT in mpu4, to use new timer
devices. Also corrected 50Hz timer in MPU4 Video games.
[James Wallace]

Fixed bug in tx1.c spotted by new compiler warnings in gcc 4.3.0.
[Atari Ace]

Another batch of pedantic static/const/include fixes. [Atari Ace]

Redid video timing in orbit with raw parameters. Added full memory map
and a few other cleanups. [Aaron Giles]
