0.34b7 [Alex Pasadyn, Zsolt Vasvari, Kurt Mahan]


- Page flipping seems off in NBA Jam (or else there's a blank-the screen bit we're missing)


- Hardware: Midway T-unit system

- The real MK2 board has a special cable designed for SF2 cab conversions that has the 2 SF2 Medium punch/kick buttons as block buttons for MK2. The secondary block button registers in test mode, but does not have an indicator light show up. During gameplay, the second block only functions temporarily. You can hold the button, but the character will only take a block position for 1 second. This is correct behavior.

- 0.36b9: Several changes and improvements to the TMS34010 emulation and to the Williams games using CVSD sound [Aaron Giles]. Changed TMS34010 CPU1 clock speed to 6.25MHz, M6809 CPU2 to 2MHz and YM2151 to 3579580 Hz.

- 0.34b7: Added smashtv.c driver (Alex Pasadyn, Zsolt Vasvari, Kurt Mahan (hardware info)). Known Bugs: High scores don't display in MK and Trog. We have no clue right now as to why. Strike Force hangs after beating the mother alien. Might be a protecion issue, but it's purely a speculation. Once in a while the "Milky Way" portion of the background in Strike Force is miscolored. When the Porsche spins in Narc, the wheels are missing for a single frame. This actually might be there on the original, because if the game runs over 60% (as it does now on my PII 266) it's very hard to notice. With 100% framerate, it would be invisible. Save state is commented out because it only works without sound. Sound has some problems, especially in Smash TV. Since we cannot run these games at 100% with sound on, it's hard to test for accuracy. TODO: Check for auto-erase more than once per frame (not sure if this feature is actually used). Verify screen sizes. Terminator 2 gun. Verify inputs. More cleanups. The OKIM6295 has a bankswitched ROM <-- broken - need clean fix. CVSD chip is not very accurate. Once working properly abstract it out so it can be used by other drivers, such as Sinistar.
