Source Changes
Deprecated device_set_info. Almost all devices had a NULL or empty
function here. Remaining devices have been converted to have
device-specific functions to do the same thing with proper type
checking. CPUs still have a set_info function but it is CPU-specific
now and no longer piggybacks on the general device function.
[Aaron Giles]

Changed UI to ignore selection from lightguns when off screen. This
stops selection of Gun X Gun Y if you move the gun out of range.
[Derrick Renaud]

Moved stv_vdp2_dynamic_res_change() function outside of VIDEO_UPDATE
in ST-V. [Angelo Salese]

- disabled the floor stuff in Fatal Fury Wild Ambition (looking for a
cleaner implementation)

- understood and implemented the 'auto-animate' registers for the
tilemaps (animated waterfalls etc. in Fatal Fury Wild Ambition)
- reorganized graphic decoding
- documented + hooked up 4bpp/8bpp select on layers.

goldstar.c improvements / changes: [David Haywood]

- documented how you can swap the blue/green bonus colours (but left
the code disabled, I think versions with it swapped probably just
have different proms)
- added gfxdecode for cmasterc

Memory maps merges for the following drivers: [Angelo Salese]
* groundfx.c
* lastduel.c
* macrossp.c
* madmotor.c (also cleaned-up some video variables in it)
* mcatadv.c (also reduced a 1.0 clipping out volume setting)
* moo.c

Changed the way memory allocation is handled. Rather than allocating
in terms of bytes, allocations are now done in terms of objects. This
is done via new set of macros that replace the malloc_or_die() macro:

alloc_or_die(t) - allocate memory for an object of type 't'
alloc_array_or_die(t,c) - allocate memory for an array of 'c' objects of type 't'
alloc_clear_or_die(t) - same as alloc_or_die but clears the memory
alloc_array_clear_or_die(t,c) - alloc_array_or_die with clearing

All original callers of malloc_or_die have been updated to call these
new macros. If you just need an array of bytes, you can use
alloc_array_or_die(UINT8, numbytes). [Aaron Giles]

Made a similar change to the auto_* allocation macros. In addition,
added 'machine' as a required parameter to the auto-allocation macros,
as the resource pools will eventually be owned by the machine object.
The new macros are:

auto_alloc(m,t) - allocate memory for an object of type 't'
auto_alloc_array(m,t,c) - allocate memory for an array of 'c' objects of type 't'
auto_alloc_clear(m,t) - allocate and clear
auto_alloc_array_clear(m,t,c) - allocate and clear

All original calls or auto_malloc have been updated to use the new
macros. In addition, auto_realloc(), auto_strdup(),
auto_astring_alloc(), and auto_bitmap_alloc() have been updated to
take a machine parameter. [Aaron Giles]

Changed validity check allocations to not rely on auto_alloc* anymore
because they are not done in the context of a machine. [Aaron Giles]

Removed of SMH_BANKn macros. Just use SMH_BANK(n) instead, which is
what the previous macros mapped to anyhow. [Aaron Giles]

Added missing casts and made other tweaks to appease some more strict
settings on the compiler. [Aaron Giles]

bit, cleaned up comments, added more TODOs, Fixed some unsaved
savestate related stuff. [Lord Nightmare]

driver. [Angelo Salese]

Added sound to Pocket Gal Deluxe (bootleg) [Angelo Salese]

lordgun - Fix: P1 Button2 is really P2 Button1. [Cananas]

Changed Lunar Lander thrust control to a pedal. This more accurately
emulates the control. Note: the current code uses IPT_PADDLE. This
causes the game to start with the thrust at 50%. This is not correct.
The control is really a hand operated pedal. [Derrick Renaud]

Merged memory maps for nycaptor, nbmj8991, nbmj8891, mystwarr.
[Angelo Salese]

First layer of memory map merging for namcos2.c and namcos21.c, needs

register. Fixes mantis 2817. [Enik Land]

Improved interrupt handling for the 8/16 bit H8s. [R. Belmont]

System 23: hooked up serial comms between subcpu and I/O board.
[R. Belmont]

Added a driver for Irem M14 HW. [Angelo Salese]

Removed deprecat.h dependancy for kopunch.c. [Angelo Salese]

Naomi: hacked up 3D renderer. Still quite preliminary but allows most
games to show graphics. [Olivier Galibert, David Haywood]

Converted the WAVE sound device to stereo (for MESS). [Curt Coder]

Various improvements to Parent Jack driver. [Tomasz Slanina]

Moved Taito 'skip to next level' buttons from BUTTON_2 to Q/W keys.
[Fabio Priuli]

Fix MCS51 disassembler to work properly when there are two memory
arguments (the second would overwrite the first). [Aaron Giles]

Added and began hooking up the 8751's for the System 1 games. Still
some work to do. [Aaron Giles]

Added proper JVS I/O board init string for Idol Janshi Suchie-Pai 3
to allow it to boot. [Angelo Salese]

Corrected sauro main cpu to 5Mhz and YM3812 to 2.5Mhz as verified on
the pcb. [Corrado Tomaselli]

Improved protection emulation in galpani2 driver: [Luis Faria]
- modified somewhat the protection handling, geeting rid of the need
to call galpani2_mcu_run from VIDEO_UPDATE, as that function is
performed by CPU2's INT7 and it now works. And added support for
command 2, making gp2se go into demo mode and allowing to go
ingame, nice skulls! ;-) Unfortunately, this set is still not
playable because of missing gals in the background and sometimes
there's an ADDRESS ERROR, causing a reset. Included in these
changes, I added support for MCU triggering by CPU2.
- changed some 8 bit writes disguised as 16 bit to AM_WRITE8 and
- "crystallized" the clocks of the M68000s and OKIs, deriving the
latter from the former.
- fixed a Copy&Paste mistake I made in the previous submission, in
the sound rom mappings for galpani2/2t/2g.
- reduced the input port definition duplication by using PORT_INCLUDE
where applicable instead of defining everything again.
- reduced the CPU#2 Code region size to the effectively used size,
and expanded the CPU#2 Backgrounds Data region size to the maximum
usable size, making it the same for all sets.

Fixed bug when setting breakpoints on Z80 CPUs at addresses A-F.
