Source Changes
--------------
Changed default DIP switches in onetwo.c. Common coinslot mode seems broken, or our code is wrong. [David Haywood]

Updated documentation in several drivers based on old readmes and other data that might get lost. [Andrew Gardner]

Fixed COP420 instructions JSRP, LBI, LQID, and SKT. Draco now has sound. Also fixed COP420 instructions XAS and INIL. Fixed cycle count for extended opcodes. Added CKO general purpose input. [Curt Coder]

Improvements to American Poker II driver. [Roberto Fresca]
- Reworked the color routines switching to resnet system.
- Added a resistor network diagram.
- Switch to pre-defined crystal value.
- Changed the WATCHDOG_TIME_INIT to be based on miliseconds instead of hertz.
- Other minor cleanup/fixes.
- Updated technical notes.

peplus driver changes: [Jim Stolis]
* Updated coin-in timing
* Extended memory address range of DUART
* Fixed overlapping input port bits

Fixed PORT_IMPULSE handling. The old code would force inputs to be asserted for at least the number of frames indicated, but keeping the button pressed would keep the input asserted. Now the input is asserted far exactly the number of frames indicated. [Nicola Salmoria]

Fixed memory access in the 80286 cpu core which made i286.h obsolete.
Changed CPUINFO_INT_MAX_INSTRUCTION_BYTES to prevent crashes during disassembly. [Wilbert Pol]

Fixed behavior of toggle switches so that they don't lose their value when the UI is up. They also can now be used for multibit DIP switch settings in which case they toggle through all the options. Added new functions input_field_select_next_setting() and
input_field_select_previous_setting() which can be used to iterate properly through DIP switches. Fixed the behavior for cases where conditional ports are in play (you could get stuck). Changed uimenu.c to call these instead of implementing its own. [Aaron Giles]

Changed uimenu.c so that hitting ENTER on a DIP switch resets it to its default value. This is analagous to how the OSD sliders behave. [Aaron Giles]

Renamed EEPROM_* to eeprom_*. Updated all drivers accordingly.
Typedef'ed a real eeprom_interface structure. [Aaron Giles]

Added a PORT_CUSTOM for the eeprom bit reading. Updated several drivers to use that by specifying it in their input ports instead of having a custom read handler that inserted the bit forcefully.
Also added a PORT_CUSTOM for the ticket dispenser callback as well.
Updated the dcheese driver to use it. Many more drivers can be updated to use these new PORT_CUSTOMs in the future, eliminating hacky input port read handlers. [Aaron Giles]

Changed text used to specify a menu separator in uimenu.c, and added a #define for the new string. [Nathan Woods]

Added TOKEN_SKIP_* macros to tokenize.h. [Aaron Giles]

Changed error reporting during input port detokenization to fill a buffer rather than fatalerror-ing immediately. Should now properly skip over any invalid tokens. Enhanced error detection during input port detokenization to catch duplicate bits. There are a lot of these!
Updated initialization code to print errors and fatal only if the input ports were unable to be constructed at all. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed duplicate input port bits in pacman.c, gottlieb.c, cps1.c, megadriv.c, segae.c. [David Haywood]

Added support for a NULL set of input ports, used by the empty driver. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed cpu_getiloops() which was not returning the correct value. [Nicola Salmoria]

Made gijoe not crash, but still don't understand what the original code was trying to do. [David Haywood]

Moved suprpool to a better match hardware. Fixed the ROM load and added a list of PCB components. [Roberto Fresca]

Implemented autoload mode in 8257 DMA: [Miodrag Milanovic]
* added support for autoload mode
* fixed bug in calculating count

Fixed duplicate input port bits in dkong.c. [couriersud]

MIPS core changes: [Aaron Giles]
- renamed struct mips3_config -> mips3_config
- updated all drivers to the new names
- removed MIPS3DRC_STRICT_COP0 flag, which is no longer used
- a few minor cleanups
- moved implementation-specific state into a pointer hanging off of the core MIPS3 state
- removed large context in favor of a pointer to the large context to help improve context switch times

Changed the behavior of the translate callback in the CPU interface: [Aaron Giles]
- added new 'intention' parameter to the translate callback to indicate read/write/fetch access, user/supervisor mode, and a flag for debugging
- updated all call sites to pass an appropriate value
- updated all CPU cores to the new prototype

UML updates: [Aaron Giles]
- added new opcode SETC to set the carry flag from a source bit
- added new opcode BSWAP to swap bytes within a value
- updated C, x86, x64 back-ends to support the new opcodes
- updated disassembler to support the new opcodes

DRC frontend changes: [Aaron Giles]
- fixed bug in handling edge case with the PC near the 0 or ~0
- added new flag to tag privileged instructions

Added new option -snapname which lets you provide a template for how snapshot names are generated. See config.txt for details. [Aaron Giles]

Added new astring functions astring_del, astring_replace, and astring_replacec. [Aaron Giles]

Removed meaningless service_coin_lockout_w function. Updated the zaxxon driver to correctly handle the coin enable lines.
[Nicola Salmoria]

Fixed bug that caused DIP switches to be improperly read from game cfg file in certain circumstances. [Aaron Giles]

Added internal default tags for input ports when saving/loading. [Aaron Giles]

Updated cheat sytem drastically [ShimaPong]

New games added or promoted from NOT_WORKING status

beatmania THE FINAL (ver JA-A) [Chizzy]
Player's Edge Plus (XP000112) White Hot Aces Poker [hammer300]
ChuckECheese's Match Game [Exodus]
