MAME Info:

0.36b2 [Aaron Giles]


- Possible glitch on some of the ending screens. Smitdogg (ID 02356)


- 0.146: hap fixed atarivc_eof tag and shortened playfield_upper(15 chars) tag to playfield_up. This fixed missing/corrupted graphics in Batman.

- 0.139u3: Aaron Giles moved the old hard-coded EEPROM data out into a file in Batman.

- 0.139u1: Aaron Giles changed atarigen_state to be a base class from which all the related Atari drivers derive their state from.

- 0.135u4: Some more Atari driver shuffling [Aaron Giles]: Added atarigen_init() function which allocates all timers and registers for save states. Updated all drivers to call it. Converted some drivers to use device timers.

- 0.135u3: Aaron Giles converted atari drivers over to using driver_data for the most part. Some shared systems still exist with globals, but this tackles the atarigen module and the variables local to each driver.

- 0.114u2: Aaron Giles and Couriersud added more accurate video timing to most of the Atari 68000-era games. The parameters are from published specs, not derived. The board uses a VAD chip to generate video signals. Changed VSync to 59.922743 Hz.

- 0.114: Couriersud added save state to Batman and general save state support to the atarijsa and atarigen modules.

- 0.105u4: Aaron Giles added PLD dumps to Batman. Updated address map (verified from schematics and GALs). Added plds ($0, 200, 400, 600, 800, a00, c00, e00 - gal16v8a-136085).

- 0.37b15: Fixed gfx2/3 rom loading. Changed M6502 CPU2 clock speed to 1789500, YM2151 to 3579000 and OKI6295 to 9037 Hz. Fixed gfx2/3 rom addresses.

- 0.36RC1: Changed 68000 CPU1 clock speed to 14318180 Hz, M6502 to 1789772 Hz, YM2151 to 3579545 Hz and OKI6295 to 9039 Hz.

- 0.36b2: Aaron Giles added Batman (Atari Games 1991).
