- New devices: ad_59mc07, ad_60mc01, atarisac, atariscom, hd6435208, hd6475348, hd6805s1, mm58274c, n8097bh, neocart_mslug5b, p8798, s_dsp, s_smp, tc0090lvc, upd7001, upd72067, upd7811, upd78c10 and ym2414
. ADChips SE3208: Use callbacks for interrupt acknowledgment
. AM9517A: Assert EOP during rather than after final DMA transfer. uPD765 may not care much about the timing of this signal, but other devices (notably NCR5380) expect it to occur simultaneously with the read/write strobe. This *might* break drivers/devices that expect EOP to be continuously active as it was previously emulated, rather than pulsed. Those likely need to latch the edge of EOP or one of the ACK signals.
. Intel I386: Added alias for fstp st(i) (cpu\i386\x87ops.hxx)
. Intel P8x9x: Added more device types, some with 16-bit buses. Implemented quasi-bidirectional port structure (cpu\mcs96\i8x9x.cpp). Location 0 is just 0 (mcs96\mcs96d.cpp). Fixed EXTINT and added some very preliminary HSI stuff. Implemented HSO CAM status flags in IOS0 (cpu\mcs96\i8x9x.cpp).
. Motorola MC6800: Removed unneeded 6800ops workaround
. Motorola MC68000
. Don't iterate to save arrays. Eliminated legacy prepost registration (m68000\m68000.h).
. Pload does an explicit table walk (m68000\m68kmmu.h)
. Motorola MC68010: Correct DBcc timings. This fix prevents certain Marble Madness clones (e.g. marble2) from watchdog resetting while cheksumming the ROM (m68000\m68k_in.lst and m68kops.cpp).
. Motorola MC68705: Added more documentation of mask ROM versions. Added HD6805S1 device for future use.
. Motorola MC68HC05: Support M68HC705C8A internal banked RAM (cpu\m6805\m68hc05.cpp). Only reset due to NCOP when it's enabled.
. NEC uPD7810/11: Nominally distinguish NMOS and CMOS device types
. NEC Vxx: Added 8080 mode (nec\nec80inst.hxx)
. Signetics 2650: Get the vector from the IRQ ack request, removed use of set_input_line_and_vector and HOLD_MODE. Fixed interrupt-related regressions in 2650-based games.
. Zilog Z8000/Z8002
. Clean up reset sequence (don't read program space at device_reset time). Use callbacks to vector all external interrupts; correct data pushed during acknowledgment. For NMI and NVI, a vector is read from the bus but merely stored on the stack (most Z8000 systems seem to just leave the bus open here). For VI, the vector offset calculation has been changed for the Z8001: the low byte is multiplied by 2, not 4, so AD0 generally must be driven low.
. Fixed unreliable order of operations in operand calculation for certain instruction modes (z8000\z8000cpu.h)
. Memory access refinements. Implemented byte smearing for memory and I/O writes. More accurately handle unaligned word I/O without breaking PCOS-M24.
. Z8001: Expanded address space to 23 bits
. Z8002: Correct width of I/O space (16-bit, not 8-bit). Documented pinout.
. Zilog Z80180: Internalized certain registers and make clock divider software-selectable
. Atari C012294 POKEY and Yamaha YM2414 OPZ: Modernized struct saving
. Discrete Sound: Documented DISCRETE_FILTER1 and DISCRETE_FILTER2 better (sound\disc_flt.hxx)
. 7474 TTL: Changed output to deliver either 0 or 1, not -1.
. 74161 TTL: Fixed state machine and made TC signal asynchronous
. 74543 TTL: Added octal registered transceiver
. Atarigen and Atariscom (General functions for Atari games)
. Separated various drivers from atarigen_state (machine\atarigen.cpp; drivers\arcadecl.cpp, eprom.cpp, klax.cpp, shuuz.cpp, toobin.cpp and vindictr.cpp)
. Moved interrupt handling down into drivers (machine\atarigen.cpp; atarig1.cpp, atarig42.cpp, atarigt.cpp, atarigx2.cpp, atarisy1.cpp, atarisy2.cpp, blstroid.cpp, cyberbal.cpp, gauntlet.cpp, rampart.cpp, skullxbo.cpp and xybots.cpp)
. Eliminated ATARI_CLOCK_xxxMHz macros in favor of standard XTAL constants (machine\atarigen.cpp)
. Separated 'Atari Sound Communications' from machine\atarigen.cpp. Moved IRQ handling to audio\atarijsa.cpp (not a property of the actual device)
. DECO 55 / 56 / 74 / 141 Tilemap Generator: Added notes of Locked 'n Loaded PCBs. Fixed transparency/transmask handling in custom draw case.
. DECO BAC06 Tilemap
. Fixed flagsmap handling. Reduced unnecessary values.
. Updated drawing behavior. Use tile callback. Converted pen masking into set_transmask behavior. Added notes. Reduced duplicates and unneeded values.
. DCS Audio: Removed some dummy_space() calls. Fixed reset control. Changed DCS reset control to active low in Midway drivers (atlantis.cpp, kinst.cpp, midvunit.cpp, seattle.cpp, vegas.cpp, midtunit.cpp, midwunit.cpp and midxunit.cpp).
. Discrete Netlist
. Fixed parsing of netlists by nltool. Reduced memory allocation calls in non-core code. Performance improvement.
. Fixed netlist syntax errors (machine\nl_dpatrol.cpp). Fixed standalone build and doxygen mainpage (netlist\build\makefile and netlist\documentation\mainpage.dox.h).
. Improved performance up to 65% on audio netlists. This commit introduces precompiled static solver code. Due to additional optimizations the compiler can use because the detail calculation steps for the solution are known e.g. the kidniki netlist sees a 100% speed increase. In all environments (windows/*nix/osx) the source for the static solver code can be created using bash lib\netlist\ This will create lib\netlist\generated\static_solvers.cpp which is compiled into the mame binary. The script is just a temporary workaround. The intention is that nltool whill be able to create this file with one call. There are other improvements in this commit speeding up the processing of timestep and dynamic calculations.
. Documented alternative approach to CD4016. The CD4016 is an analog switch IC. Document an experimental approach to implement the analog switch as a 3 terminal element which is completely being dealt with as part as the linear system. The intention was to improve convergence when the switch is in a feedback loop. One example are two-opamp tridiagonal wave generators. Unfortunately the approach did not work out and in addition was performing far worse than the net-separating original code. Also updated comment in nld_generic_models.h.
. Fixed linking order of netlist. Moved netlist between dasm and utils,expat,... link statements. This fixes the resolution of symbols in netlist code which may be used in machine\netlist.cpp. Changed tested on Ubuntu, Windows and MacOSX. Removed a FIXME in plib\pmain.cpp.
. Added parameter to split_paragraphs to allow passing in a custom line end string (plib\poptions.cpp). Basename function now accepts a suffix to remove (plib\putil.cpp). Move macros where they belong. Fixed a macro expansion bug. Fixed alternative LM3900 implementations (macro\nlm_opamp.cpp).
. nltool usage and static compile changes. This commit simplifies the creation of static solvers. For this to happen the following changes were made: nltool does no longer support the "-f netlist_file.cpp" option. All parts of netlist which used the option now expect the file to be specified after all other options. The static compile command now supports an "--output" option to specify the file to be created and accepts multiple input files. To be create the static solver file for MAME use the script provided or: nltool --cmd static --output=src\lib\netlist\generated\static_solvers.cpp. Updated documentation and examples provided by nltool --help.
. Removed code duplication. Clang-tidy, srcclean and pedantic warnings fixed. Code maintenance on plib\pfunction.cpp.
. Compile time improvement and code maintenance. Added a define NL_USE_ACADEMIC_SOLVERS and disabled it in the build. This will not compile in solvers which are either illustrative or only perform for large sparse matrices like GMRES.
. Simplified object structure a bit
. Code maintenance and edge case fixes. "Edge cases" are compiles were the floting point type used for the core may be different from the one used by solvers, e.g. double/float. This does not happen in MAME, here currently this is always double/double. Since floats are better suited for GPUs whose double performance is limited it was time to review the code. This commit fixes warnings about type conversions and precision loss. In addition there is better support for INT128 and FLOAT128. The MAT solver has seen some minor performance increases.
. Fixed a segfault happening only under for certain netlists (netlist\nl_setup.cpp). This seems to be a compiler/standard library issues.
. Documentation update (netlist\documentation\mainpage.dox.h, primer_1.dox.h and test1-50r.svg)
. Documented trapezoidal capacitor integration (netlist\analog\nld_generic_models.h)
. Improved readability. The purpose is to make clear what is actually done and to reduce usage of calls to update.
. Unify solver calls. Calls to the solver used different paths. These changes unify these calls and provide a common call for discontinuous state changes on analog components (change_state).
. Epson RTC-65271 RTC: Added intrq_r method to query interrupt state. Use existing interrupt flag for intrq_r (machine\rtc65271.cpp).
. Floppy: Save INTRQ and DRQ states (machine\wd_fdc.cpp). Case of the missing floppies solved (isa\fdc.cpp).
. Hitachi HD63484 ACRTC: Simplified and unified handlers. The actual bus interface makes no provision for the upper/lower byte masking performed by the previous implementation.
. MC6850 ACIA: Prevent transmission of a spurious character following master reset
. Microchip PIC16: Added PIC16 generic disassembler with extended instructions (tools\unidasm.cpp)
. MOS 6551 ACIA: Clear IRQ state upon hardware reset. Not doing this at device_start time avoids a race condition in digel804 that was causing the Z80 interrupt to be raised in advance of machine_start.
. Namco Custom
. Namco custom chip improvements. Wire up reset lines on Namco custom chips. Removed debug logging.
. Emulated Namco 51xx via low level cpu. Previously, this was using high-level emulation. This had some game-specific hacks.
. Emulated Namco 06xx the NMI and chip select lines more accurately. Three control bits are used for the clock divider. Clarify timer delay is zero.
. Fixed MB88xx MCU interrupt handling. m_nf is basically the IF flag. It should be set when the int line is active (when its low). Only trigger an int when the line was previously high.
. Removed quantum hacks in galaga and polepos. With the better Namco custom chip emulation, this doesn't seem to be required anymore.
. PC hardware: Fixed faulty EOP propagation that broke floppy disk loading (machine\genpc.cpp)
. PCI: Fixed 'Fatal error: install_ram_generic: In range cdcdcdcc-9b9b9b98 mirror 0, start address is after the end address' for pcipc in devnoclear debug builds (machine\pci.cpp).
. PLA: Allow reparsing after device started (machine\pla.cpp)
. Taito Ensoniq Sound System: Removed obsolete workaround for M68000 reset issue (audio\taito_en.cpp)
. Taito TC0030CMD (C-Chip): Fixed typo in taito_cchip_device (upd7811->upd78c11)

- Gun Fight: New netlist-based audio implementation for Gun Fight, derived from Midway audio schematics. Sound checked against several YouTube videos and seems to match, apart from acoustic effects of cabinet. Removed the old sample-based sound, which is no longer necessary (The samples for that version were actually from the newer game Boot Hill and didn't match Gun Fight's sound hardware; they even included Boot Hill's funeral march tune!). Although the netlist version has much greater overhead, performance is still acceptable on modern hardware.

. VIDEO RENDERING SYSTEM: Initialization outer box darkened/less distracting (emu\render.cpp)
. MEMORY SYSTEM: Fixed memdump command causes MAME crash (MAME 0.209: Removed obsolete alignement limit (emu\emumem.cpp) and correct start/end on big endian (emu\emumem_mud.cpp)) (ID 07560). Removed obsolete logging (emu\emumem_hedw.ipp).
. ROM loading cleanup: More flexible constructors for path_iterator and emu_file. More straightforward system/device ROM loading and software loading when using ROM loader. Proper parent walk when searching for identical CHDs with different names from software list. Fixed hangs if software item parents form a loop. Fixed layouts being loaded from bogus empty paths. Note that there are changes in behaviour: For software list ROMs/disks, MAME will now search the software path before searching the machine path. The search path for the owner of the software list device is used, which may not be the driver itself. MAME will no longer load loose CHDs from the media path - it's just too unwieldy with the number of supported systems. MAME will no longer search archives above the top level of the media path.
. Eliminated pulse_input_line_and_vector (emu\diexec.cpp; cvs.cpp, galaxold.cpp, scramble.cpp and zac_2.cpp)
. Don't clear the input queue on reset (emu\diexec.cpp). This fixes problems where devices are input line changes are missed because a device was reset. One case is at startup, where one device's output is wire to another's input. During start the first device adds, eg, a RESET assertion to the second. When that device starts, it resets itself and clears the pending RESET assertion.
. LUA engine: Enhancing LUA video:begin_recording() function with optional format parameter.
. Get rid of a temporary that clang 10 doens't like (emu\mconfig.h)
. UI
. Removed auto pause (ui\about.cpp). NOTE: Inconsistent with other Tab menu entries including the fullscreen popup for selecting new machine, and also a bug where it refuses to unpause when closing About popup with Tab.
. Removed clock freqs trailing 0s on machine info screen (ui\devopt.cpp and info.cpp)
. Simplified cpu handlers (cpu\ccpu\ccpu.cpp, cop400.cpp, es5510.cpp, h6280.cpp, mcs48.cpp, mn10200.cpp, ppc.cpp, st62xx.cpp, tlcs870.cpp, tlcs900.cpp and upd7810.cpp)
. Simplified machine handlers (machine\315_5195.cpp, 315_5296.cpp, 315_5338a.cpp, 315_5649.cpp, 3dom2.h, 40105.cpp, 6532riot.cpp, 6821pia.cpp, 68230pit.cpp, 74153.cpp, 74161.cpp, 8042kbdc.cpp, alpha8201.cpp, am53cf96.cpp, c117.cpp, cdp1852.cpp, cedar_magnet_flop.cpp, cedar_magnet_plane.h, cedar_magnet_sprite.h, decocass.cpp, decopincpu.cpp, ds2404.cpp, gaelco_ds5002fp.h, gaelco3d.cpp, i8214.cpp, i8257.cpp, k053252.cpp, k054321.cpp, ldvp931.cpp, m1comm.cpp, m2comm.cpp, mathbox.cpp, mb89352.cpp, mb89363b.cpp, mie.cpp, model1io.cpp, model1io2.cpp, mos6530.cpp, mpu401.cpp, msm6253.cpp, namco06.cpp, namco50.cpp, namco51.cpp, namco53.cpp, namco65.cpp, namco68.cpp, namcoio.cpp, nb1412m2.cpp, nmk004.cpp, pcecommn.cpp, pcshare.cpp, r10696.cpp, ra17xx.cpp, s2636.cpp, s32comm.cpp, serflash.cpp, st0016.cpp, tait8741.h, taito68705interface.cpp, taitosjsec.cpp, tms6100.cpp, tms9901.cpp, upd4701.cpp, upd7004.cpp, v3021.cpp, vs9209.cpp, wpc.cpp, wpc_lamp.cpp, wpc_out.cpp, wpc_pic.cpp, wpc_shift.cpp and z80scc.cpp)
. Simplified video handlers (video\airraid_dev.cpp, alpha68k_palette.cpp, antic.cpp, arcadia.cpp, atarivad.cpp, bfm_adr2.cpp, bfm_dm01.cpp, combatsc.cpp, contra.cpp, deco_ace.cpp, decocomn.cpp, decodmd1.cpp, decodmd2.cpp, decodmd3.cpp, decrmc3.cpp, dynax_blitter_rev2.cpp, edevices.cpp, flkatck.cpp, gtia.cpp, hcastle.cpp, k007121.cpp, k007342.cpp, k007420.cpp, k051733.cpp, kan_pand.cpp, ladybug.cpp, namco_c116.cpp, namco_c123tmap.cpp, namcos2.cpp, naughtyb.cpp, orca40c.cpp, phoenix.cpp, rpunch.cpp, seta001.cpp, snk6502.cpp, stfight_dev.cpp, tia.cpp, vsystem_gga.cpp, wpc_dmd.cpp and ygv608.cpp)
. Simplified audio handlers (audio\arcadia.cpp, atarijsa.cpp, cage.cpp, cps3.cpp, csd.cpp, dsbz80.cpp, efo_zsu.cpp, exidy.cpp, exidy440.cpp, flower.cpp, galaxian.cpp, gottlieb.cpp, hyprolyb.cpp, irem.cpp, laserbat.cpp, namco52.cpp, nichisnd.cpp, phoenix.cpp, pleiads.cpp, rax.cpp, s11c_bg.cpp, segag80r.cpp, segam1audio.cpp, segasnd.cpp, sente6vb.cpp, snk6502.cpp, t5182.cpp, taito_en.cpp, taito_zm.cpp, tiamc1.cpp, timeplt.cpp, trackfld.cpp, wpcsnd.cpp and zaccaria.cpp)
. Programmable Logic Device (PLD): New device for jedutil and rom name changes: Initial support for viewing the logic equations of the PLS100, 82S100, PLS101 and 82S101. Added support to view the the logic equations of the PALCE22V10 device. Improved the documentation on the Magix game and the undumped PAL's (security fuses blown). Added PAL22V10 as another device that is equivalent to the PALCE22V10 device. Added initial registration test for the PALCE22V10/PAL22V10 devices. Adding PAL22V10 combinatorial regression test data. Updated jedutil with a new command that will take a JED file and list the devices that the JED file could represent.
. Work around deprecation warning - Removing something in 3.9 when the replacement was only added in 3.2 is typical of Python's disregard for stability (scripts\build\
. Added template save/load code (emu\save.cpp)
. attotime::zero is not a valid arugment for as_hz et al (emu\attotime.h)
. Re-Implemented SHA-1 and get rid of the two third-party implementations (util\hashing.cpp)
. Reduced dependencies on libemu (lib\formats\*.cpp)
. Software List: Start adding validation for data areas (emu\softlist_dev.cpp). Fixed the errors found by adding validation to software list data areas. Most of them seem to be simple copy-paste errors hidden by the fact that the default device_image_interface loader ignores the data area size (as opposed to the "ROM" loader). Validate ROM labels.
. Fixed smartquotes by disabling them: While smartquotes are somewhat configurable, it's better if we don't use them at all. Makes sure there are no hidden pit traps for the users (docs\source\
. Fixed assert when starting empty driver - the empty driver magically has no search path, and hence can't have any ROM data regions (emu\drivers\empty.cpp)
. hiscore.dat update (plugins\hiscore\hiscore.dat)
. Refactoring of AVI/MNG recording code: Initial refactor of AVI/MNG movie recording, consolidation of copy and paste code, hiding of AVI/MNG behind interfaces. Extracted recording specific code out of emu\video.cpp and put into emu\recording.cpp. Took the opportunity to move slightly more logic out of video.cpp into recording.cpp. Consolidated frame counting logic.
. Use Arial Unicode MS as the default font (fixes missing glyphs in many layouts) and fixed deprecation warnings
. Avoid crashing in OS X debugger when a nonexistent disassembly or memory view is selected (which may happen automatically with .cfg files)
- VGM player
. Added multiple spectrogram visualization modes (sound\vgm_visualizer.cpp). Fixed DC offset issue and added more visualization modes.
. Added rate controls and hold button (drivers\vgmplay.cpp)
. Added recent Project2612 releases consisting of many New and Updated entries (hash\vgmplay.xml)
- Compiling
. Removed last remaining uses of generic_space() and many dummy_space() calls
. Fixed some Clang-tidy-10 warnings
. Revert "Fixed some modernize-use-equals-default clang-tidy warnings" from MAME 0.218
. Fixed hang with Emscripten's "upstream" backend (scripts\genie.lua)
. Fixes for Clang 10.0.0 misleading indentation and XOR used as a pow warnings (src\3rdparty.lua, cpu\z8000\z8000ops.hxx and machine\stvcd.cpp). Fixed VS2019_Clang with LLVM 10.0. Fixed stray character (src/3rdparty.lua).
. Centralised instantiation of more of the util::strformat engine (util\strformat.cpp)
- Debugger
. Fixed some deprecations (debugger\qt\debuggerview.cpp)
. QT debugger: Added '#define horizontalAdvance width' to QT debugger (debugger\qt\debuggerview.cpp and memorywindow.cpp)
. Misc fixes for bugs that showed up in devnoclear debug builds (cpu\lr35902\lr35902.cpp/h, machine\ds1994.cpp, tc009xlvc.cpp, drivers\megaphx.cpp, machine\inder_sb.cpp and taitosjsec.cpp)
. Make expressions octal for applicable address spaces in disassembly view. General cleanup (debug\express.cpp, debugcpu.cpp): Changed default base from hardcoded macro to dynamic parameter for parsed_expression. Changed symbol table parameters and variables to references or std::reference_wrapper. Removed the (unused) ability to construct a parsed_expression without a symbol table. Eliminated symbol_table &table and void *memory_param arguments from callbacks (superfluous now that std::function can bind everything necessary). Eliminated globalref pointer from symbol_table. Added explicitly defaulted move constructor and move assignment operator.

"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."
