Gradius III (Japan)

0.36b13 [Nicola Salmoria]

Possible Bugs:

- There's another bug in gradius3; or a offset problem or a visible area problem. Reply from Mamesick: Yeah, that's why I changed back in my 32FX the visible area to 304x224 (which is wrong but at least fixes those issues. An hack a la NeoGeo) IIRC someone here in the past said that this happens on the real PCB too. gradius3_0109u1gre robiza / Mamesick
