(Pierpaolo Prazzoli)

Source Changes
Intel 8085: [Curt Coder]
- refactored callbacks to use devcb
- added 8080A variant

Added helper macros to devcb for input lines tied to GND/Vcc.
[Curt Coder]

Added Dirt Dash wave ROM redumps [Guru]

Battle Zone discrete sound & discrete sound additions: [couriersud]
- added discrete sound to battle zone
- engine frequency (resistor R11) can be changed with slider
- discrete sound may be disabled by setting BZONE_DISCRETE to 0 in

Discrete sound improvements: [couriersud]
- DISCRETE_RCDISC3: added diode junction voltage; junction voltage
also indicates polarity
DISC_OP_AMP_FILTER_IS_LOW_PASS_1M; INP2 takes role of v_ref in
this type
- DISCRETE_OPAMP: fixed a bug (possible divide by 0)
- DISCRETE_LFSR: fixed bug preventing output of shift reg to sub
node 1

SNES improvements: [Angelo Salese]
- Fixed half colour blending behaviour

Added infrastructure to compile universal standalone disassembler:
[Aaron Giles]
- added unidasm to the tools build
- split the disassemblers out of libcpu and into new libdasm
- ensured the disassembly entry points for all disassemblers are
in the source file for the disassembler (sometimes new generic
versions were created)

Improvements to Noraut Poker driver... [Roberto Fresca]
* Switched to pre-defined Xtal clock.
* Changed the way how graphics are banked/accessed.
* Fixed the graphics offset and number of tiles per bank.
* Added new set: Noraut Red Hot Joker Poker.
* Added new set: Noraut Poker (NTX10A).
* Added new set: Noraut Joker Poker (V3.010a).
* Fixed the tile size/decode for the first GFX bank.
* Added proper norautrh inputs, including the readout button.
* Added partial DIP switches to norautrh.
* Added an extra DIP switch to Noraut Red Hot Joker Poker.
* Also added DIP locations to the whole bank.
* Added a default NVRAM for Noraut Joker Poker
* Executed a trojan on 2 noraut systems to confirm the way 16x32
tiles are decoded.
* Fixed the x-offset for 32x32 tiles lines.
* Fixed the screen aspect and visible area.
* Confirmed correct colors. No bipolar PROM involved.
* Added Noraut Joker Poker hardware and PCB layouts.
* Documented the discrete audio circuitry. Added a full diagram.
* Fixed the coin counters.
* Documented all the output ports.
* Added a scheme with descriptions for every existent port.
* Added full lamps support to naroutp, naroutjp, naroutrh and naroutpn.
* Created lamps layouts for 11 and 12-lamps scheme.
* Rerouted some inputs to mantain the inputs layout.
* Renamed some inputs to match the text with the real cab buttons.
* Removed the imperfect colors flag from the existent sets.
* Added 2 different control panel layouts to the source.
* Updated technical notes.

Fixed redundancy in clock speed assignments in some drivers by
cleaning all divided by 1 (/1) instances. [Tafoid]

Argonaut SuperFX core improvements: [Anonymous]
- Hooked up Branch instructions
- Fixed numerous SuperFX core bugs.
- Improved disassembler to more gracefully handle ALT* opcode effects.
- Corrected instruction behaviors: STOP, SUB, SBC, SUBI, CMP
- Added LSR and ROL opcodes
- Updated instructions to use the safer superfx_gpr_write: LOOP,
- Added missing register writeback to LMS
- Corrected carry flag behavior in ROL opcode
- Corrected BRA target address calculation (maybe still wrong)
- Corrected LOOP target address calculation
- Made sure that FROM sets cpustate->sreg_idx
- Disabled RAM/ROM clocking, going with instant transfer for now
- Understood and re-enabled pipelined instruction architecture, Star
Fox runs farther
- Fixed a ridiculous typo in ROL instruction
- Fixed overflow flag calculation on ADDI / ADCI
- Fixed lack of register reset after ADD / ADC / ADDI / ADCI

tmaster.c update [Luca Elia]
- implemented carts banking and multiple EEPROMs
- added "pen replacement" blit mode
- fixed palette size

Discrete work [couriersud]
- change the way custom modules are handled
- updated drivers mario and dkong accordingly
- minor change to stream input handling
- no more linear lists for nodes. All node processing switched to
linked lists.
- module step and reset now only get a node pointer passed
- Added discrete_info * pointer to node
- Only nodes with a step routine actually get processed.
- Fixed a bug: discrete logs did not work since some time
- preliminary parallel task constants; depending on results these may
vanish again.
- Overall slight performance increase. dkong 940% to 960%, galaxian
740% to 790%

Fix NULL timers crash in the mc6845. [hap]

Fixed IM2 interrupt cycles in the Z80 core. [eke]

kaneko16 updates:
- Decoded all protection data for B.Rap Boys
[David Haywood, Tomasz Slanina]
- Cleaned up decryption function for B.Rap Boys external Rom
[David Haywood]
- Improved video emulation for B.Rap Boys [David Haywood]
- Marked several GFX roms as bad on B.Rap Boys [David Haywood]
- Improved protection simulation logic w/regards to writeback
addresses, allowing B.Rap Boys to boot [Tomasz Slanina]
- Redumped GFX Roms [Guru]
- Added hitbox simulation based on ******** / game requirements
[Tomasz Slanina]
- Converted MCU writes to use write_byte [David Haywood]
- Added kludge to reset MCU data write address to prevent game from
running out of ram and crashing [David Haywood]
- Added DSWs [David Haywood]
- Added eeprom support to the B Rap Boys protection simulation
[David Haywood]
- Change to priorities to fix some visibility problems.
[David Haywood]

Added correct U2 sound ROM to the mk3 sets [MK3Fan - Mike]

Discrete sound parallel tasks support: [couriersud]
- DISCRETE_TASK_START: Start a new task. A task is a set of nodes
which only depend on input nodes and nodes in the set
- DISCRETE_TASK_END(task_output_node): Marks the end of the task.
task_output_node is the node whose output over time should be
preserved. This node can be accessed by nodes in the main thread.
- Illustrated the concept in the dkong discrete emulation. This also
has been enhanced to buffer DAC output.
- Discrete tasks now support multiple task output nodes

Further discrete changes: [couriersud]
- DISCRETE_OUTPUT now is a stepping node.
- DISCRETE_STREAM_INPUT now advances input pointer in step.
- More linked_list usage.

Pit Boss driver updates: [Brian Troha]
- Corrected rom names for the Megastar & Supertouch 30
- Added missing rom to Supertouch 30 and verified old bad_dumps
- Added documentation about the Megastar sets
- Made pbst30b a clone of pbst30 and added program versions to the
name, IE: Pit Boss Supertouch 30 (9234-10-01)

Fixed B-Rap Boys sound banking [Phil Bennett]

Sigma Poker: Fixed duplicated definition of Hold 2 button. Added the
missing Hold 3 button. [Roberto Fresca]

Continued discrete sound system "list-ification": [couriersud]
- No more constraints on number of input and output nodes
- input nodes now make use of a context

Removed osd_is_bad_read_ptr function. [Aaron Giles]
