After a bit of a breather, there's a new MAME
update now available. This update features a new Namco 50xx chip
emulation from Nicola to replace the previous simulation that was done.
Thanks to Ernesto, Andrew, Guru, and others for the decoding work that
led to this improvement. A large bunch of new skeleton drivers were added
by Ville, R. Belmont, and others, though they are all far from working.
Ville also made some significant improvements to several of the later Konami
drivers, bringing them closer to playable. And lastly, there's been a substantial
change to the TMS34010-based games which simplifies
the logic and improves their accuracy by centralizing the management of
video updates in the TMS34010 core itself.
As usual, keep reporting issues to MAME Testers. This update includes
a number of fixes for issues reported there in the past couple of weeks.
