. Dumped internal rom from 'Dodonpachi Daioujou Tamashii (V201, China)', 'The King of Fighters '98: Ultimate Match HERO' and 'Oriental Legend 2 (Oversea) (English)' IGS036 chip. The 'Oriental Legend 2' cartridge confirming only the region byte changes in that case. Other regions, including Japan single PCB need confirming to see if there are further changes in those cases or not. As the Oversea version ignores the Card Reader MCU we can mark it as working, so new working machines.
. Make RTC ticking and removed orleg2 patch, its not needed anymore. Document PGM2 debug features.
. Updated IGS036 encryption to support kof98umh (machine\igs036crypt.cpp). Use uploaded IGS036 encryption tables for kov2nl and orleg2.
. Use sprite decryption keys uploaded by games where we have internal rom. Tweak MCU timing for kov2nl and hook shared ram.
. Added MCU HLE, now it works like if MCU/RW is alive but card is not inserted. Added ICRW simulation (machine\pgm2_memcard.cpp).
. Memcard reader now uses image_device stuff, cards can be inserted/removed and get saved. Use optional_device_array.
. Promoted The King of Fighters '98: Ultimate Match HERO (China, V100, 09-08-23), Knights of Valour 2 New Legend (V302, China), (V301, China), (V300, China), Oriental Legend 2 (V101, China), (V103, China) and (V104, China) to working. As each game/region requires a valid default card in order to save said cards are part of romset.
. IGS036 seems to be derived from a ARM946ES type core based on using MPU not MMU, change it to be such (cpu\arm7\arm7.cpp).
. Added PGM2 GPU registers notes. Added foreground scroll. Fixed end of sprite list handling. Dynamic resolution change. Fixed bug in yzoom code causing hang.
. Added default memcard for future use to Knights of Valour 3 (V104, China)
. Rewrote Atmel ARM AIC logic and implemented most features (machine\atmel_arm_aic.cpp)

- twinkle.cpp
. Many fixes to waveram banking and DMA, most sets are semi-playable now.
. Games promoted to working: beatmania IIDX 4th style (GCA03 JAA), beatmania IIDX 6th style (GCB4U JAB), beatmania IIDX 6th style (GCB4U JAA), beatmania IIDX 7th style (GCB44 JAA), beatmania IIDX 8th style (GCC44 JAA) and beatmania IIDX Substream with DDR 2nd Club Version 2 (984 A01 BM).
. Changed RF5C400 clock to match board notes in driver. Added 8Mb of dummy ram to the RF5C400 and adjusted the banking so that sounds play correctly. Fixed RF5C400 sound regression. This fixes the dog whistling and other issues in the beatmania IIDX games.
. Improved LED font from available reference sources. Mapped lamps and dipswitches. Added basic internal artwork.
. Changed security card padding from 0x00 to 0xff. Security card for beatmania IIDX 4th & 5th has now been dumped and scrubbed serial numbers.
- vectrex.cpp: Quick and dirty regression fix
- zn.cpp: Mostly switched to configured banking. NBA Jam Extreme banking still to update. Very preliminary work on supporting save state. Will need more work in various devices. Use optional_memory_bank.
- 1941: Added yi22b.1a PAL dump and confirmed lwio.12e dump for clone 1941: Counter Attack (Japan)
- Action Fighter: Added 317-0018 decryption key to clones Action Fighter (FD1089B 317-unknown), (FD1089B 317-unknown, analog controls), (System 16B, FD1089A 317-0018), (System 16B, FD1089B 317-unknown) and (System 16B, FD1089B 317-unknown, analog controls) (Games now playable).

- Armed Police Batrider: Fixed Z80 CPU2 clock
- Batman Forever and NBA Jam Extreme: Fixed Acclaim RAX sound
- Beezer: Sound section has its own XTAL
- Blood Bros.: Verified sprite data in clone West Story by converting original mask rom into bootleg format and figuring out what was scrambled from there, it's a very simple but quite stupid bitswap on 2 of the roms. Made a note that one byte actually differs in the bootleg even after this, since it's been verified on 2 bootlegs it could be the original mask rom has a bad byte in it instead, should really be checked.
- Borderline: Demoted clone Borderline (Tranquillizer Gun conversion) due to bad rom dump (never should have been considered working)
- Chequered Flag: Notes and demotion to IMPERFECT_COLORS / UNEMULATED_PROTECTION

- MAME
. UI
. Fixed can't change into directories that have a "." prefix in their name (ui\filesel.cpp and posixdir.cpp) (ID 06785)
. Fixed off-by-one crash (ui\selsoft.cpp)
. MEMORY SYSTEM
. API change (emu\emumem.cpp): * direct_read_data is now a template which takes the address bus shift as a parameter. * address_space::direct() is now a template method that takes the shift as a parameter and returns a pointer instead of a reference. * The address to give to {read|write}_* on address_space or direct_read_data is now the address one wants to access. Longer explanation: Up until now, the {read|write}_* methods required the caller to give the byte offset instead of the actual address. That's the same on byte-addressing CPUs, e.g. the ones everyone knows, but it's different on the word/long/quad addressing ones (TMS, Sharc, etc...) or the bit-addressing one (TMS340x0). Changing that required templatizing the direct access interface on the bus addressing granularity, historically called address bus shift. Also, since everybody was taking the address of the reference returned by direct(), and structurally didn't have much choice in the matter, it got changed to return a pointer directly. Longest historical explanation: In a cpu core, the hottest memory access, by far, is the opcode fetching. It's also an access with very good locality (doesn't move much, tends to stay in the same rom/ram zone even when jumping around, tends not to hit handlers), which makes efficient caching worthwhile (as in, 30-50% faster core iirc on something like the 6502, but that was 20 years ago and a number of things changed since then). In fact, opcode fetching was, in the distant past, just an array lookup indexed by pc on an offset pointer, which was updated on branches. It didn't stay that way because more elaborate access is often needed (handlers, banking with instructions crossing a bank...) but it still ends up with a frontend of "if the address is still in the current range read from pointer+address otherwise do the slowpath", e.g. two usually correctly predicted branches plus the read most of the time. Then the >8 bits cpus arrived. That was ok, it just required to do the add to a u8 *, then convert to a u16/u32 * and do the read. At the asm level, it was all identical except for the final read, and read_byte/word/long being separate there was no test (and associated overhead) added in the path. Then the word-addressing CPUs arrived with, iirc, the tms cpus used in atari games. They require, to read from the pointer, to shift the address, either explicitely, or implicitely through indexing a u16 *. There were three possibilities: 1. Create a new read_* method for each size and granularity. That amounts to a lot of copy/paste in the end, and functions with identical prototypes so the compiler can't detect you're using the wrong one. 2. Put a variable shift in the read path. That was too expensive especially since the most critical cpus are byte-addressing (68000 at the time was the key). Having bit-adressing cpus which means the shift can either be right or left depending on the variable makes things even worse. 3. Require the caller to do the shift himself when needed. The last solution was chosen, and starting that day the address was a byte offset and not the real address. Which is, actually, quite surprising when writing a new cpu core or, worse, when using the read/write methods from the driver code. But since then, C++ happened. And, in particular, templates with non-type parameters. Suddendly, solution 1 can be done without the copy/paste and with different types allowing to detect (at runtime, but systematically and at startup) if you got it wrong, while still generating optimal code. So it was time to switch to that solution and makes the address parameter sane again. Especially since it makes mucking in the rest of the memory subsystem code a lot more understandable.
. Constexpr implies inline, generalise iabs, work around lack of C++14 constexpr in VS2015 (emu\emucore.h and emumem.cpp/h).
. Replaced space.machine() with machine() (emu\emumem.cpp)
. Eliminated remaining uses of address_space::machine() outside of emumem (debug\debugbuf.cpp, debugcmd.cpp and machine\seibucop\seibucop_cmd.hxx)
. Removed machine member of address_space (emu\emumem.cpp)
. DEVICES
. Fixed -listdevices misplacement of subdevices in some configurations (mame\clifront.cpp)
. Moderate overhaul of device_rom_interface: Allow endianness and data/address width to be altered during configuration. Raise memory_space_config from private to protected so it can be overridden. Make entire interface optional (as needed by one device to be added soon). Use interface_post_load instead of explicitly registered delegate. Only call rom_bank_updated when bank actually changes. Removed prototypes for nonexistent functions (emu\dirom.cpp). Documentation update (docs\source\techspecs\device_rom_interface.rst).
. Replaced some space.device() calls (drivers\namcos11.cpp, namcos22.cpp, namcos23.cpp, naomi.cpp, rmhaihai.cpp, witch.cpp, x1.cpp, x68k.cpp, xexex.cpp, xmen.cpp, xyonix.cpp, yunsung8.cpp and zn.cpp)
. Eliminated device pointer conversion from device_interface (emu\device.h)
. Added rewind feature and RAM savestates
. How RAM states work: Implemented using util::vectorstream. Instead of dumping m_save.m_entry_list to file, it writes them as binary to vectorstream. Compression is not used, as it would slow down the process. The header is written as usual, also in binary. When a state is loaded, the savestate data gets binary-read from vectorstream. How rewind works: Rewind is optional, it can be turned off through MAME GUI while not running. Rewind capacity is available there too. Rewind step hotkey is available from the standard hotkey menu. In the debugger you have the "rewind" command ("rw" shortcut) that works the same as the hotkey. Every time you advance a frame (pause step), rewinder captures a RAM savestate of the frame you were at. It does the same when you do step into/over/out in the debugger. Every time it captures a new state (and when you unpause), it marks as invalid all its states that go after the current machine time, because input might change, so they are not relevant anymore. It keeps their buffers allocated though, for future use. When rewinder runs out of allowed amount of savestates it can have, it invalidates the first state in the list and tosses its unique_ptr to the end of the list, then it uses its buffer to capture a new state. When you hit the rewind step key, or use "rewind" command in the debugger, it loads a state that is immediately before the current machine time. Invalid states between valid ones are not allowed to appear, as that breaks rewinder integrity and causes problems. Rewinder keeps its own set of ram states as a vector of unique_ptr's. All rewinder operations and errors get reported using machine().popmessage().
. icount was missing from the savestates. When you load a state, icount (*icountptr) would remain whatever it was before loading, messing with the remaining cycles and with the amount of code executed per run() call. This introduced non-determinism and badly influenced usage of savestates while debugging. machine().time() would also return wrong values after that, since it adds remaining cycles (emu\diexec.cpp).
. Reset scheduler savestate to what it was for years before rewind. Changing saved variables should be done after thorough testing. right now, adding some vars breaks some machines, adding other vars breaks others. Switch to megabyte-wise capacity. Savestate size greatly differs between machines, relying on state count is unstable. Switch to internal indexing. No longer depends on inaccurate machine time. Rewind accelerator key in debugger (Ctrl+F11). Report capacity hit (once), with some useful info. Make error reports saner. Mention rewind and rewind_capacity in the docs.
. Get rid of legacy BITSWAP* (BITSWAP8(_) -> bitswap<8>(_)) (emu\emucore.h)
. Stop save and load logging timers unless VERBOSE is set (emu\schedule.cpp)
. Changed misleading parameter name (emu\softlist_dev.cpp)
. Validity: Prevent insane recursion when multiple slot devices have the same tag (emu\validity.cpp)
. PLUGINS
. Fixed sentence building by concatenation, and at the same time collapse two translatable strings to one (plugins\cheatfind\init.lua).
. Raise a fatal error if LUA console is requested but the console plugin is not found (rather than crashing) (frontend\mame\mame.cpp)
. Updated hiscore.dat. Removed duplicate sets, debug print and merged identical entries.
. Fixed crlf issue (plugins\data\load_dat.lua)
. 3rdparty: Updated GENie, BGFX and BX. Added BIMG since it is separated now, updated all shader binaries and MAME part of code to support new interfaces.
. Multi-Language: Updated Brazilian Portuguese, French and Italian translations. Note: All translation updated to follow GNOME Translation Rules for Brazilian Portuguese, this are the same rules for other Linux Distributions, Manuals, etc. Now we can avoid translation conflicts (http://br.gnome.org/GNOMEBR/ErrosFrequentes and http://br.gnome.org/GNOMEBR/GuiaDoTradutor).
. Added preliminary YM2608 OPNA support for VGM player
- Compiling
. Start replacing auto_alloc_* with smart pointers, get rid of reference constants in the debugger in favour of capturing the value in the bind/lambda (cpu\i386\i386.cpp, debug\debugcmd.cpp/h, debugcpu.cpp/h, express.cpp/h, mame\cheat.cpp/h, drivers\amusco.cpp, coolridr.cpp, includes\cave.h, wecleman.h, video\cave.cpp and wecleman.cpp).
. Allow compiler a little more optimisation leeway in x86 count_leading_* (emu\validity.cpp, osd\eigccx86.h and eivc.h)
- Debugger
. Disassemblers are now independant classes. Not only the code is cleaner, but unidasm has access to all the CPU cores again. The interface to the disassembly method has changed from byte buffers to objects that give a result to read methods. This also adds support for lfsr and/or paged PCs. Fixed building with Visual Studio 2017 & Clang 5.0.0 (also tested with GCC 7.2.0).
. Reset m_dasm on source switch (debug\debugvw.h and dvdisasm.cpp/h)
. Added nicer autoscrolling (debug\dvdisasm.cpp)
. Fixed watchpoint hit message for address-shifted processors (debug\debugcpu.cpp). Fixed memory window (debug\dvmemory.cpp).
. Changed back to uppercase hex for util::stream_format (debug\debugbuf.cpp)
. Set REG_BEAMX/BEAMY/FRAME to 0 on invalid eg. screenless (debug\dvstate.cpp)
. Removed stutter in dump command ASCII bytes (debug\debugcmd.cpp)

NOTE: It looks like all? v5 cores ignore least significant address bit during 16bit loads, so we should add something like virtual uint32_t arm7_cpu_read16(uint32_t addr) override { return base_class::arm7_cpu_read16(addr & ~1)}; into theirs class declaration.

- MAME
. VIDEO RENDERING SYSTEM
. BGFX
. Use bgfx::ViewMode::Sequential fixes handheld overlays (render\drawbgfx.cpp). This fixed also bitmap overlays don't display with bgfx video output (ID 06806).
. Abstracted some view-related functions into bgfx_view class
. Fixed two issues with the GLSL Bilinear Shader: 1. Off-by-one pixel coordinates. 2. Sampling of wrong pixels at some non-integer stretch factors. Note: First was noticed while comparing screenshots of the software and OpenGL w/GLSL renderers (OpenGL output was shifted up and to the right). Fixed by subtracting a 1/2 pixel from the texture coordinates when calculating the bottom left pixel to use for interpolation. Second was apparent when running Pac-Man fullscreen on a 1920x1080 screen and allowing non-integer stretching. Manifested as irregular horizontal 'steps' in the output. Fixed by sampling from the center of all pixels which should avoid any funny business in regards to pixel coordinate rounding.
. Added Bicubic Shader to OpenGL backend. This shader uses the equation described by R. Keys in the paper 'Cubic Convolution Interpolation for Digital Image Processing' which is, in this case, the same as a Catmull-Rom spline. This produces a sharper upscaled image than bilinear filtering. The new shader is selected by setting gl_glsl_filter to 2. Consequently, gl_glsl_filter is now treated as an int rather than a boolean. Also fixed a variable name problem in the code guarded by GLSL_SOURCE_ON_DISK.
. Fixed update_gamma_ramp (render\drawd3d.cpp). This fixed full screen Brightness/Contrast/Gamma settings not working anymore (ID 06623).
. Privatized m_screen and other variables of device_video_interface
. Fixed Blit function (binding reference to nullptr; emu\screen.cpp)
. Added fallback_artwork and override_artwork as MAME options to allow default artwork to be loaded. Removed debug testing code. Allow loading of built-in layouts even if override_artwork is specified. Allow loading of fallback_artwork if only default view have been found. Fixed order of built-in layouts with regards to fallback_artwork as agreed upon the forums. Changed |= true to = true, and changed override artwork so it only checks for default.lay if the .lay is not found (emu\render.cpp and emuopts.cpp).
. DEVICES
. Removed space.device().safe_pc() from devices
. Eliminated some machine().firstcpu usage. Eliminated unnecessary downcast in debug\debugcpu.cpp.
. Moved machine\meters.cpp/h and ticket.cpp/h to devices\machine\
. Differentiate between cartridge (cart) and romimage (rom) in generic\slot.cpp
. API Change: Machine configs are now a method of the owner class, and the prototype is simplified. NOTE: Beware, the device context does not follow in MCFG_FRAGMENT_ADD anymore due to the prototype change. So creating a device then configuring through a fragment doesn't work as-is. The simplest solution is just to add a MCFG_DEVICE_MODIFY at the start of the fragment with the correct tag.
. UI
. Added option to disable saving NVRAM on exit (emu\emuopts.cpp and machine.cpp)
. Fixed AddressSanitizer: alloc-dealloc-mismatch when closing dipswitch menu (ui\menu.cpp) (ID 06816)
. Disambiguate memory handlers
. Fixed nodump disk validation regression (emu\softlist.cpp). Simplified nodump CHD check.
. Added verbose logging for CFG files (emu\config.cpp). Note: We already have verbose logging for INI files that get parsed, so having CFGs get similar treatment is useful.
. Converted zippath directory to a C++ interface (ui\filesel.cpp, imgcntrl.cpp, util\zippath.cpp and debugger\debugimgui.cpp)
. PLUGINS
. Fixed table lookup in plugins\data\database.lua (ID 06821)
. Added reporting of database errors (plugins\data\database.lua and data_marp.lua)
. Don't pollute the namespace and use emu.print_error (plugins\data\data_marp.luam database.lua and load_dat.lua)
. Use C locale for int/float in XML files (util\xmlfile.cpp)
. Clean up and improved comments for some Chinese names. Hong Kong titles should probably be Cantonese.
. Basic anchor links for FAQ page (docs\source\usingmame\commonissues.rst)
. Updated documentation for castool and added floptool (tools\castool.rst and floptool.rst)
- MAC OS X: Detect attached debugger on OSX before generating trace/breakpoint trap
- Compiling
. Added workround for Clang static builds and enable them again, don't force -O1 on Clang builds (scripts\genie.lua).
. Added -lSDL2main to fix linking with GCC 7 (osd\sdl.lua). Use dynamic linking for Windows SDL builds to workround an error during linking about liblualibs.a being corrupt, which is dependant on the order of the .o files contained within it (scripts\genie.lua).
. Removed qtmain on windows, it conflicts with SDL2_Main (osd\modules.lua). Fixed building for windows with qt debugger (osd\windows\window.cpp).
. Fixed tiny build (scripts\target\mame\tiny.lua)
. Fixed MSVC 2015 build (drivers\eprom.cpp)
. Added asserts for index out of bounds with e.g. mushi2k4 (ID 06817) and ddboy to sound\aica.cpp and video\k054156_k054157_k056832.cpp
. Restored SANITIZE make option. Restored basic support for SANITIZE make option. Disabled some unwanted UBSAN checks / enabled nullability checks / enabled ASAN use-after-scope checks.
. std::function is too inefficient, std::function and delegate both require runtime relocations and slowing down startup. Just use function pointers. Get rid of a circular dependency between gamedrv.h and mconfig.h (emu\devdelegate.h, driver.cpp, emu.h, gamedrv.h and mconfig.h).
- Debugger
. Fixed masking of signed integer types in debug state (emu\distate.h)
. Added MAME Debugger help documentation




"Theory is when you know everthing but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: nothing works and no one knows why."
