* Hard disk R/W support and real-time clock support emulating
ClikClok card.
* wd2010: provides IRQ / (B)DRQ signals. Honors DRIVE_READY and WRITE
FAULT (DRDY / WF) now. Set WF to GND and DRDY to VCC in your
driver if signals are not serviced.
* ds1315 : Handle chip enable / chip reset / phantom writes to RTC.

-Update 315_5124.c palette in TMS99x8 modes [nitrofurano]

* Own Kryoflux reads

- Added a lot of findings and docs to the WMS driver. These are video slots
identified as WMS 360 / 550. Also added the proper crystals, correct CPU,
frequency, preliminary memory map, 2 new sets, and technical info.
[Roberto Fresca]

-Breakout: Hooked up antenna and free game dip switch as well. [Couriersud]

-added Seiko Epson E0C6200 cpu emulation [hap]

-started on Mitsubishi MELPS 4 cpu emulation [hap]

- WMS driver... Hooked the Analog Devices ADSP-2105 CPU (still need
proper memory maps). Added technical notes. [Roberto Fresca]

-gambl186: Worked a complete set of inputs + DIP switches, fixed the
CPU frequency, added findings and tech notes. Now the four games could
be selected. Roulette, Bingo and Black Jack are playable. Casino 10
(poker) needs the watchdog implemented to work properly. Also changed
the game name to Multi Game (Vxxx). [Roberto Fresca]

-VT240 and VT320: add links to DEC-O-LOG service notes for
different firmware changes, add firmware version numbers.
[Lord Nightmare]

-Netlist: [Couriersud]
* improved 9312 device ==> 20% speed increase
* remove netlist_state_t ==> no added value
* removed dead code in solver
* various minor modifications
* performance monitoring now also displays stats for subdevices
* fixed save-state issues
* fixed save state in 9312
* Added EXTCLOCK which can generate arbitrary timing patterns.
* Use two EXTCLOCKs to replace timing circuit (9316) in breakout. This
gives a speed increase from 60% to 75%.

-Mini.Boy 7: Added lamps and a internal button-lamps layout based on
the cabinet pictures. Lamps are currently disabled due to other
unknown writes are happening on the same port. Need more
investigation. Also added the coin counter. [Roberto Fresca]

-Multi Game (EGD): Sounds are 4-bit ADPCM driven by a NEC D7759GC.
Hooked preliminary sound routines. Needs more work. [Roberto Fresca]

-gambl186: enable payout, improve EEPROM behaviour a bit so Poker is
somewhat playable [Peter Ferrie]

-corrections to gtfore sets [Brian Troha]

-n64 optimisation: [MooglyGuy]
* Improve blender performance.
* Improve RDP speed by eliminating some unneeded code.
* RDP - remove threaded waits to increase performance.

-MAME now represents full build, for building MESS drivers only use
make SUBTARGET=mess, for building only Arcades
drivers only use: make SUBTARGET=arcade [Miodrag Milanovic]

-Adjust breakout layout to fit screen boundaries. Changed lights to be
be circles. [Couriersud]

-Downsizing ... Removed netlist_ttl_input_t and netlist_ttl_output_t.
The logic family is governed by the chip and defaults to TTL. However
individual devices may change the logic family of their inputs and
outputs as well. Implementing special output/input characteristics of
"S", "LS", "HC", ... you name it, devices is now pretty easy.
Theoretically e.g. a "LS_HighPrecision" proxy could be used to model
the output down to the transistor level. [Couriersud]

-zaxxon.c: Use SN76489A for sound as shown on congo bongo
schematic [Lord Nightmare]

-sigmab98.c: Implemented sprite rotation [Luca Elia]

-HLSL shader improvements [Jezze]
* changed shadow mask implementation, shadow count XY now represent
the number of pixel the shadow UV sized tiles will take on the
screen
* implemented rotation of the shadow mask texture depending on the
default landscape or portrait view of the screen
* removed prescale and pixel border of the shadow mask texture
* added option to change the shadow UV offset, to reduce the color
bleeding of the shadow mask
* adjusted presets to work with the changed mask implementation
* reduced defocus offset
* improved downsampling for better blurring
* improved alignment of bloom layers (raster and vector)
* applied bloom effect to the render output of screenshot and AVI
recording
* changed curvature effect to fit screen size
* changed scanlines to be not rendered into bloom layers
* changed shadow mask to be not rendered into bloom layers
* changed color floor to not light the bloom layers
* changed shadow mask to not dark the color floor
* added image vignetting simulation and option
* added round screen corner simulation and option
* added screen light reflection simulation and option
* made usage of unused brightness offset (additive)
* removed unused pincushion option
* removed duplicate shadow count Y options
* removed artwork/adapture.png
* added artwork/adapture-grill.png
* added artwork/shadow-mask.png
* added artwork/slot-mask.png
* added hlsl/simple.fx
* removed unused shaders::blit() function
* added shaders::screen_pass() function, which handles the
(raster-)rendering on screen, into screenshot and AVI recording
* added effect:set_bool() function
* fixed usage of OrientationSwapXY shader parameter
* added RotationSwapXY shader parameters to consider the user defined
screen rotation
* added missing RotationSwapXY shader paramter
* fixed curvature zoom to fit the screen size in any aspect ratio
* fixed black border on the right and bottom side of the screen,
caused by the previously added rounded corners

-gameking.xml: added dump of one multigame cart. [TeamEurope]

-leapster.xml: added a few new dumps. [TeamEurope]

-msx: started adding disk images to msx1_flop.xml and msx2_flop.xml,
based on preliminary partial work by Riley110 [Fabio Priuli]

-Update palette in 315_5124.c [nitrofurano]

-Netlist:
* Fixed soft reset due to wild BJT_SW oscillations
* Downsized nld_signal.h to one template
* Some minor changes improving performance by some notches.
* Always compile nl_asserts to avoid bit rot.
* Adjusted monitor gain for breakout. [Couriersud]

-Finally got USE_DEACTIVE_DEVICE to work with breakout as well. This
adds about 10% to 20% performance. In addition, increased timing
accuracy for deactivated devices. However still, there may be timing
inaccuracies which certain circuits may not tolerate. Disabled for
now. [Couriersud]

-clifront.c: Slightly optimized -romident so that each software list is
parsed only once instead of as many times as the number of drivers it
is attached to. Also, removed the implication that files with (size !=
power of 2) are to be skipped, since we now want to identify also
tapes and floppies and not only ROM binaries. [Fabio Priuli]

-Added netlist-level parameter NETLIST.USE_DEACTIVATE. Device
deactivation optimisations can now be enabled within the netlist
provided the circuit can deal with them. [Couriersud]

-Added truthtable implementations to a number of devices. The
combination of device activation, usage of GCC PMF extensions and
truthtables brings breakout to 95% speed up from about 75%. Fixed
NE555 initial state. [Couriersud]

-abc802, abc806, abc1600: Fixed invalid data transmitted on
first keypress. [Curt Coder]

-Some netlist bugfixes [Couriersud]:
* Savestate works
* Truthtable device deactivation fixed
* Truthtable ignore mask is now determined by a better approach
identifying more ignore possibilities.

-savquest: WIP [Peter Ferrie]
* hooked up Voodoo 2 device
* switched to DS12885 device for proper CMOS size
* moved Voodoo register base to proper place
* implemented Voodoo-specific PCI registers to pass Glide validation
* increased frame-buffer size to enable 640x480 resolution
* hooked up ISA bus and SoundBlaster 16 device
* extended HASP emulation to return product information
* documented HASP behaviour

-gambl186: further improvements to EEPROM behaviour [Peter Ferrie]

-peplus.c: Added correct CG2228 graphics roms to the Multi-Poker
XM00008P set. [BrianT, PowderMaker]

-wyvernf0.c: Fix text color and wrong sprite flip x based on game
footage [Luca Elia]

-Removed all uses of setjmp.h in MAME. The only place where it is still
referenced is cpu/powerpc/ppc.c. I couldn't find any case in which
this file would be compiled using the current build system.
Nonetheless documented use using PPC_H_INCLUDED_FROM_PPC_C define.
[Couriersud]

-TLCS-90 CPU: Fixed TRUN bit masking (timers start/stop)
[Rainer Keuchel]

-More progress on SPICE to netlist conversion. nltool can now convert
simple SPICE netlists e.g. from LTSpice to netlist format.
[Couriersud]

-abc806: Implemented flashing, double height, and underlined
characters by hooking up the RAD PROM. [Curt Coder]

-gameboy: more updates to the cart emulation [Tauwasser]
* fixed some MBC1, MBC2 details
* added MMM01 notes on registers
* fixed Sachen MMC1 implementation so that Sachen logo is properly
displayed
* started work on the emulation of Sachen MMC2 mapper

-Rewrote the MOS6532 RIOT. [Curt Coder]

-AVR8 CPU: fix I/O register mapping and improve logging [Felipe Sanches]

-Bump version on *nix man pages. [Cesare Falco]

-cgenie: Rewrote driver and removed lots of cruft [Dirk Best]

* Use the slot system for the parallel interface, fix and implement
the joystick as a slot device and create a printer slot device
* Add support for the RS-232 port
* Add support for the Break key (causes NMI)

-abc80: Default to ABC 830 disk drive with fast controller. [Curt Coder]

-Cocoa debugger: autosize controls for custom font size choice [Vas Crabb]

-nascom: Clean up, add NASBUS emulation and make the floppy disc
controller a NASBUS card, convert to the new wdc emulation, add generic
socket emulation, add initial software list.
* Add support for the Advanced Video Card (AVC)
* Add support for the selectable restart address
* Add support for the CP/M version of the Nascom 2
* Add floppy softlist [Dirk Best]

-voodoo fixes [Ted Green]
* Fixed voodoo direct lfb reads from PCI memBase1 (non-3d)
* Fixed voodoo depth selection for pixel pipeline write
* Fixed voodoo depth selection for rasterizer
* Fixed depth biasing for fog selection
* Minor voodoo fix for color expansion in rasterizer
* Minor voodoo initialization changes so that address masks are correct
* Fixed voodoo_pci type selection
* Fixed voodoo_1 pci initialization

- added / completed / enabled save state support in the following drivers:
alinvade.c, berzerk.c, bwing.c, cball.c, cchasm.c, darkseal.c, dynduke.c,
hvyunit.c, igs009.c, nbmj8688.c, nbmj8891.c, nbmj8900.c, ninjaw.c,

-abc80: Fixed VSYNC and de-interleaved the ABCDemo diskette. ABCDemo now runs
from both cassette and diskette. [Curt Coder]

-camplynx: Added lower case letters for pasting
Added cassette load and save
Added TAP cassette support.
Most (but not all) programs are working. [Robbbert]

No one is providing those builds at mamedev.org now.

Keep an eye on unofficial places like here or emu-france and the like.

I understood... What I mean is that the binary available on mamedev doesn't include mess drivers but only the arcade drivers...
I thought that 'new MAME' was a fusion of MAME and MESS, as UME was....

You and Jezze really outdid yourselves with your changes, by the way. Anyone can moan about how much a feature sucks, but you guys put your money where your mouths were and submitted something that's outstanding. As I've not had the time to look into HLSL, I really appreciate you guys contributing your fixes to mainline MAME.

I do not know anything about Tamagotchi. Please give me a link, where I can learn more about that particular arcade game ?!

If it's hap then it's probably not an arcade game, he's been going crazy on handhelds for the MESS side.

Sorry, but why then listing new games all together ?
It should be :
- NEW ARCADE GAMES :
.
.
.
-NEW COMPUTER/CONSOLE GAMES :
.
.
.
Otherwise fusion leads to confusion !

Generally, my opinion about merging those two projects is wrong. Making mastodon of a program will not make it better, but time will tell if I am wrong or not...

If it was up to me the whatsnew would have different sections like that and mamedev.org would have mame, mess, and ume (not necessarily under those names) but it's not.

So first you didn't even know what Tamagotchi was, now suddenly you're all pissed that it wasn't in its own section? If you didn't even know what Tamagotchi was, and couldn't even do an obvious Google search, why do you care whether it's in some separate section or not?

It seems to me like you're just looking for a reason to get all huffy about the projects being merged.

Hey, HEY ! MooglyGuy - chill off.
First of all, I was looking for a ARCADE Tamagotchi game, not any Tamagotchi game; Google shows nothing about that.
Secondly, my next post is related to previous because I was misleaded by NEW GAMES in "What's new" article.
At last I expressed MY opinion - that's all.

P.S. However, merging the MAME & MESS IS THE BIGGEST change in this version/revision/iteration of our beloved emulator, so we all have rights to comment about that, don't we ?

Should've been UME since it have MAME and MESS. I guest they will change the name later. They probably forgotten to change the name.

specific games added for home systems don't get mentioned in the whatsnew unless they are extremely rare and/or long awaited

what you see in the whatsnew is either the new arcade PCB or the new home system / console / handheld device which gets emulated

It crashes if I use any HLSL on 0.162. Is there some fundamental change I've missed?

Does not crash here on my end.

Make sure you have replaced all files in hlsl directory because some of those have changed.

Also, consider creating a fresh mame.ini to rule out conflicting settings being enabled.

No, "MAME" is what used to be called "UME". There is no separate "MAME" or "MESS".

Thanks a lot to all MAMEdevs for this update. Great to have MAME and MESS combined

If I would create a datfile from the binary and ignore the software lists, would my ROMpath contain MAME ROMs/CHDs and MESS BIOS ROMs?

First off, thanks goes out to Couriersud for continuing to conquer the discrete project. I for one never thought it would happen.

What is the purpose of the antenna in Breakout?

>What is the purpose of the antenna in Breakout?

I thought I had described this part to you sometime in the past. iirc it's a hardware component for 'ground' purpose to prevent players from causing a static shock on the cab if trying to get a free game without inserting a coin. Folks were doing various methods to cause a static shock on cabs in hopes that the cab will act like a coin credit had already been inserted.

Yes, I can see that makes perfect sense

What i'm most looking forward to now is being able to compile MAME for a target device, aka spectrum.c, as previously mentioned by one of the devs.

That will be awesome, especially for auditing purposes.

Ok Greg I'm sure you did, it does ring a bell now that you mentioned what it is for. I would have looked at an old PM you sent me but I don't save them. Sorry, brain is on overload lately. I guess people would do anything for a freebee. PM you soon.

At least now I know no one can get a free game on my laptop J/K

Thanks again to contributors for updates in .162 release such as Iteagle hardware updates and more handheld games support.


-
>Source Changes
>-m24: add z8000 apb support [Carl, Andreas Senk, rfka01]
-

Whenever Olivetti computers get improved support, I envision eventual AT&T PC 6300 support sometime later. :-)


And the ongoing netlist updates is great including a few sent in after .162 was released such as this

-
Introduced user definable truth tables:

This enables the addition of devices without changing the netlist
source code and allows the creation of libraries. Used pong.c as a
proof of concept for the time being. [Couriersud]

I look forward to next round of netlist updates that will be in by next release.

>I guess people would do anything for a freebee.

Several articles in trade magazines or Atari newsletters back in the 1970s days of how to upgrade components in cabs to prevent kids or teenagers from pulling such stunts. I don't recall personally seeing anyone having success of being able to do such moves of generating enough static electricity to shock a cab into allowing a free game to be credited. My younger cousins may have tried it without success. iirc the Electronic Corral arcade at Lakewood center mall (Lakewood, CA) had carpeted rugs on upper level floor and my cousins likely tried that trick on a couple early 1970s Atari games but no success.



>At least now I know no one can get a free game on my laptop

That laptop better be a state-of-the-art laptop to run Breakout.

It's actually the electromagnetic pulse from the electrical current in the spark suddenly collapsing inducing a current in the game electronics. The longest lines will typically have the strongest signal induced in them. Ideally you'd only want to induce a signal in the coin switch lines.

"As of 0.162 the MAME and MESS projects have been combined into a single emulator. The changes listed below cover both."

which change list is MAME WIP??

Now that MAME and MESS are the same, I have a problem.

I used to use HLSL for MAME but not for MESS.

As I still do not want to use HLSL for Snes/Nes/GB games, is there a way to tell MAME not to use HLSL for these roms ?

Well you can make snes.ini, gb.ini, etc. and disable HLSL in each one, or you can make a different folder with a different default ini and run from there.

Create the main/root configuration file for MAME using:

mame -cc

Inside the mame.ini file created set:

hlsl_enable 0

Save the mame.ini file.

Then create a folder named ini in the root directory (Same place where mame.exe resides).

Inside that ini folder, create a file named: arcade.ini

Inside that arcade.ini file created, enter the line:

hlsl_enable 1

Save the arcade.ini file.

Now, only Arcade games have hlsl enabled, while all other systems do not.
Of course the same concept works for any setting you want applicable to Arcade games only.

Or just create arcade.ini

Cool... Just keep in mind, by copying the entire mame.ini file with all its settings, if you make any (other) changes to the main mame.ini file that you want to impact all arcade and other systems, it likely will not work, because of all the other settings also listed inside arcade.ini.

CTRL+ALT+F5 will turn off HLSL while the emulation is running.

First, thank you, but to clarify it is alone Jezze´s work. He did everything regarding HLSL. I just rolled that stone and helped a little with various testings or wherever i could help him. So all the cherish, credits and honor should go to Jezze himself. I still have ideas for him and we will see, what the future brings .

Second, it is very fair and sporty from you regarding your statement. I know there where differencies and I know it can be hard sometimes, only just by reading the forums, but sometimes as you see, there can be people just with one post, that still mean it all for good . To have the balls, seeing being wrong with the first impression, is a big skill.

I hope there will be some advices/tips from you, for future problems that may arise. Your help is and will be always welcome.
