0.37b7 [Phil Stroffolino, Victor Trucco, Mike Balfour]

0.34b2 [Victor Trucco, Mike Balfour]


TODO:

- 8255 emulation (ports 0x30..0x3f) could be better abstracted

- TMS9927 VTAC: do we need to emulate this? The video controller registers effect screen size (currently hard-coded on a per-game basis).

- Minor blitting glitches in playfield of Thief (XOR vs copy?)

- Nato Defense gfx ROMs may be hooked up wrong; see screenshots from flyers


NOTES:

- Shark Driver by Victor Trucco and Mike Balfour. Driver for Thief and NATO Defense by Phil Stroffolino

- The cassette tape used in several Pacific Novelty games has a leaderless tape that is constructed so that it will loop continuously. The IO controller can start and stop the tape player's motor, and enable/disable each of two audio tracks.
