MAME 0.145u2
#277312 - 02/26/12 05:04 PM


http://mamedev.org

0.145u2
-------


MAMETesters Bugs Fixed
----------------------
- 04704: [Gameplay] 25pacman: Unable to continue while playing Galaga
(Tafoid)
- 04694: [Documentation] m5fmonty: The correct description is "Full
Monty (The) (Empire) (MPU5)".
- 04692: [Documentation] j6kapang: The correct description is "Kapang!
(Crystal) (IMPACT)".
- 04691: [Documentation] j6cpal and clone: The correct description is
"Caesars Palace (Whitbread / Crystal) (IMPACT, set 1)". The
set 'j6cpala' is his clone.
- 04693: [Documentation] m5cockdd: The correct description is "Cock A
Doodle Dough! (Empire) (MPU5)".
- 04696: [Crash/Freeze] Crash when loading samples in certain games
(Aaron Giles)
- 04697: [Compiling] Unable to compile LDRESAMPLE.exe tool (Aaron
Giles)
- 04698: [Compiling] Unable to compile LDVERIFY.exe tool (Aaron Giles)



Source Changes
--------------
chdcd: Fix crash when parsing bin/cue [R. Belmont]

Rewrite INS8250 to use diserial, updated Microtouch to modern and made
it serial device, updated connected drivers [Carl]

Checksum the delay slot in single-instruction blocks in the MIPS3 and
RSP DRCs. [Ryan Holtz]

mc146818 - Set period even if timer is disabled, required for windows
nt [Carl]

diserial - added optinal rx and tx timers and callbacks [Carl]

ins8250 - serial rx line high on start and fix for msr register [Carl]

m68k: Add API to install a non-debugger instruction hook. Usage is
strongly NOT recommended except for dire cases. [R. Belmont]

Williams blits with bit 2 set take approximately 2x as long because
they are bus-shared with RAM. Should impact some timing behaviors such
as later levels in Robotron, where approximately 10% of the blits are
done with bit 2 set. Further refinements may be necessary but this
addresses the most significant issue. [Sean Riddle, Aaron Giles]

i386: One more to fix cmpsb (dir /s in MS-DOS works now) and remove
unused variables. [Carl]

Improvements to Golden Poker driver [Roberto Fresca]
* Inputs from the scratch.
* Switched manufacturer 'Playman' to PM / Beck Elektronik, since it's
PM and Beck Elektronik/Computer/etc...
* Added technical and game notes.

Added a trivial Y reject to triangle draw commands in the N64 RDP.
[Ryan Holtz]

N64: Various PIF fixes [Ryan Holtz]

info.c: several fixes and additions to listxml output [Fabio Priuli]
* appended to xml info about devices which can be optionally mounted
to slots
* added a description attribute to slotoption to show which devices
can be mounted in each slot
* added to xml info of cpus/inputs/image/slots which are relative to
devices (e.g. CPUs or Dipswitches in the device itself)
* tags of elements directly attached to the root_device do not
display anymore the root colon (slot tags were already behaving in
this way); elements attached to optional devices use tags starting
with colon (to be interpreted as a relative tags which gets
appended to the device tag, when such a device is selected in a
slot)
* modified when necessary output routines to pass a root_device and a
root_tag as parameters, in order to simplify output of relative
devices and avoid duplicated code
* updated DTD according to the new elements and attributes These
changes allow frontends to know in advance how drivers can be
configured through the various slot options (by matching option
descriptions with device descriptions), without the need to run
-lx with the various slot combinations. This is especially of use
if a device adds e.g. dipswitches or image devices (like
additional floppy drives or additional slot expansions), but also
if one wants to know e.g. how many sound channels a soundcard
would add to a pc driver, or which kind of screen parameters would
be added by a specific choice of video card.

i386: Added 32-bit versions of LMSW, and made LMSW only change the
lower 4 bits of CR0. [Barry Rodewald]

Fixed Windows 95 blue screen. [Carl]

Preliminary driver for Merkur's 'Mahn Oh-Mann'. German board game
similar to Ludo, derivated from the indian game Parchisi. Coin-op
machine for 1-4 players. No screen, just artwork and lamps.
[Roberto Fresca]

Removed need for *_dev.lst files [Miodrag Milanovic]
* enforced short names for slot card devices
* updated validation, romverify and listxml output accordingly

N64: Force mtc0 opcodes that initiate to-RSP DMAs to end recompile
sequences to force a code check. Fixes certain microcodes from
executing garbage code after DMA. [Ryan Holtz]

N64: Don't flush the RSP DRC cache on DMA. Fixes Mario 64 and others.
[Ryan Holtz]

N64: Miscellaneous machine fixes [Ryan Holtz]
* Increase the amount of time consumed by PI DMA, makes certain RSP
microcodes that test DMA speed land in the correct window.
* Force the main CPU to yield when the RSP reads its atomic
semaphore.
* Force the RSP to yield when PI DMA completes.
* Flush the RSP DRC cache when touching IMEM with SP DMA.

i386: Prevent page faults when returning to same privilege and
unmapped pages are above the stack. Windows 95 boots now. [Carl]

Documentation of the video data on Dragon Gun. [David Haywood]

N64: Fix audio sync issues in Super Mario 64 and probably others, and
also bring PI DMA speed into the realm of reality. [Ryan Holtz]

N64: Change PI DMA speed from 3 cycles/word to 5.08 cycles, as
average PI speed is between 2.53 and 2.55 cycles/byte. [Ryan Holtz]

i386: LOCK prefix should depend on IOPL on 386. Windows NT beta
boots. [Carl]

gticlub: Rewrote the 3D renderer. Implemented gouraud shading,
lighting and fog. [Ville Linde]

Create a new device_mixer_interface, derived from
device_sound_interface, which mixes all its inputs to a single output
stream. Redefined the SPEAKER device to use this and remove the
duplicate underlying logic. The main purpose of this new interface is
to allow device-ification of an entire sound board, which can itself
become a mixer of all of its sound components to a single output
stream. This stream can then be routed by the device's owner to the
appropriate speakers. A real-life example will show up soon. [Aaron
Giles]

Better management of FLAC block sizes, aiming to keep them around 2k
samples. Increased CD sectors per hunk to 8 for better compression.
[David Haywood]

Re-did the non-CD FLAC codec to be "smart" in that it can choose
either big-endian or little-endian on the fly and uses the best one.
Added FLAC as a default codec for hard disks, which helps a lot for
certain disks. [Aaron Giles]

Added missing proms for Fax and Fax 2. [W. Belk, Smitdogg, The
Dumping Union]

play Solar Assault with the current release (thanks redk9258) and I wonder how much horse power is needed to play it without skips.

Excellent work Ville.

I am still on a Q8400S (4x 2,67GHz) and I would be interested to know how much better a SandyBridge (or maybe IvyBridge, when it's available) would perform compared to my system MAME-likewise Any takers?

SpeedUp from Gaelco is another game, which still lags on my system. Anybody playing it full speed?

The N64-based arcade games twrshaft, hipai, doncdoon, and kurufev all boot and coin up now in MAME and didn't do anything before, so there is real progress in MAME from this work

If I exclude the softlists it moves all the neogeo etc. into my backup folder. If I include them with new folders for them (in u3) clrmame crashes.

After looking at system 16 it talks about seta aleg64 as well, but has no info on its games. After looking online for any reference I kept finding little more than the mention of its name. Was it abandoned?

Then you simply rebuild from the backup path if needed and only if you're missing ROMs

With some sets etc. this is necessary step to the process.

probably Roman has added this on purpose because he knows you hate software lists and you love GoodTools... :P

anyway, neogeo roms are still included in the main -listxml output, so I really don't see why cmpro should move them out of your romfolder...

I'll try the rebuild thing after I've installed my new hard drive and let my computer run through the week of chd updates. I'm not running through a million steps to audit roms anymore though so if it's going to be like this every u release I'll just update once every few months. This is a complete hassle.

I haven't used or understand this new softlist prompt/feature that has been added.

I load all the XMLs via batch mode and everything can be scanned in 5 minutes. Very super easy

So you're scanning 4 different folders with 4 different xml files you get from mame (1 for each softlist and 1 for the rest) in some sort of batch mode within clrmame that nobody else has even heard of or what exactly are you doing?

I bet there isn't that much improvement but I plan to upgrade my HTPC to a ivy bridge in april, I play Mame with it currently via my 42 inch tv and it's a blast.

I also use XBMC as a frontend\games launcher.

I was referring to all 14X+ MESS software lists (since etabeta does a lot of work on the MESS side) as I use batch mode for that and if you have an empty profiler then CMP can automatically create Rompath for new dat or xml if you have the option checked, which saves you the massive trouble of having to set individual settings path for each XML.

If you don't keep up with MESS softlists then you don't need to know what batch mode or importing software lists even do.

OK new question then, for anybody. Has anyone successfully audited their entire u3 set without having the softlist roms removed or is it screwed for every user on the planet.

yes I have audited just fine, but I always answer no to the import software list prompt.

If you have previously answered yes, then you need to start over again by right click the mame and delete it from CMP profiler and re-add it back in.

OK that seems to be working, I guess it will be OK so long as they have rom defs in the driver as well as hash for the softlist using drivers, though I think they will eventually be moved to just hash? At which point this issue will be back. Thanks for the info.

I understand what you mean.

If you want you can drop the megatech, neogeo, & stv XMLs onto the CMP profiler OR use the Add Dat File function and also create 3 empty directories with the same names.

Then jump to rebuilder
top 3 options checked and remove matched source files NOT checked.

source: mame roms
destination: the empty directory

then you can have those directories ready and be prepared if that change happens to take place.

your complaints are ridiculous: the batch option is so unheard of that it's been present in cmpro since years (I used it to handle nointro and tosec dats since its addition); so unheard of that it's been mentioned mentioned for the past 2 years in MESS documentation about softlists ( see e.g. http://mess.redump.net/mess:howto#using_software_lists_with_cmpro or my blog); and so unheard of that 99% of the MESS users use it

not to mention that the batch option has been pointed out to you by me and others in the bannister shoutbox *every* time you came complaining about softlists, but you were probably too busy complaining about softlist, a feature you never even bothered to try (given you seemed to ignore that we used 8chars shortnames like MAME...), to read our suggestions

this is not going to happen (it's only been H*z* which tried to remove them from the driver list in the past).

what is possibly going to happen is that we remove the crc from the source and MAME gets these data from the list xml to use it at loading time and when you call -lx
but things might even remain as they are now forever... so I suggest a good old DON'T PANIC

Ok but when i clicked on This hardware is based on Nintendo 64, it brought me to a page where I found the SETA ALEG64 HARDWARE link. I found the following on that page:

"Similar to the Aleck64, this board is also N64 based. Aruze had Sammy-like designs on the arcade world at one point and put out some budget games which ran on these Aleg64 boards, using carts that are remarkably similar to the Aleck64 carts, the PCBs however are laid out differently (not sure if they share similar components)."

Im sure you can see my confusion.

What's ridiculous is I don't see a single person correctly scanning mame with softlists imported the way it prompts them to be. That's arguably a clrmame fault though.

Most people probably quit updating altogether after the last chd change though. That's why I'm the only one bitching. Everyone else gave up except Sune. I literally have to install a new hard drive and let my computer process for a week. I saw a post on another board, some poor guy decided to just delete all his chds.

I've never seen "batch" anything in clrmame. I don't keep up with the mess lists because I don't have time to. You are the one not paying attention to exactly what I was bitching about "all those times" too. It wasn't anything to do with mess list scanning, seeing as though I've never even tried to. I get it why they are needed in mess, and why you would want the zips in separate folders for mess regardless. I'll bookmark that link so I'll know how to do batching if/when it's required for mame but it might not be(?).

That option was added to clrmame for MESS and doesn't need to be used with MAME, even though both binaries have a hash directory with softlists.

What's that supposed to mean? No one is really gonna give a crap about all that.
That's like some noob saying MAME is to difficult to get going and setup, so I'm just gonna delete out everything.
It don't have an easy or pretty GUI like the other emu's

It said something about rom paths not being set for the softlist folders and did I want clrmame to auto add them for me. But it's all fine for me as long as I click no to the original softlist question. So as long as the checksums are in the drivers I'm all good, after the big chdman marathon that is. I don't want my neogeo etc. roms in a separate folder anyway.

thanks...maybe I can nail it down with this info...

regarding batcher: select more than one profile in the profiler an hit load....then you will see the batcher

That would have to be a huge overclock, Solar Assault only just reaches 100% on my 3.16GHz Core 2 Duo. It's playable but stuttery. I'm guessing about 3.4 GHz would cut it.

I believe his Q8400 would hit 3.4 easily with a nice cooler (maybe more). Anyway, if not enough, he can use the cooler later to overclock a Sandy or IvyBridge.

It just seems silly to upgrade (from a good cpu) to play games from drivers that aren't mature enough. But that's just my opinion...
