- Sprite lag in some games (e.g. metmqstr). The sprites chip probably generates interrupts (unknown_irq)


- ddonpach, dfeveron, esprade, guwange: Playback doesn't work correctly unless sound is disabled when you record them. Will lose sync if there is sound enabled. This is, I believe, also caused by sound IRQ callback from the sound chip. It can be "fixed" by commenting out the reference to the IRQ callback function in ymz280b_intf and replacing it with zero. This has the side effect of some sound effects not playing, and I'm sure it wouldn't be considered to be used in an official MAME build. But it may at least point to some way to properly fix it. inp061ora
