MAME Info:

0.109u1 [Tomasz Slanina, Guru]


- 0.132u5: Intel 8255A PPI (MESS Team): Added a new implementation of the I8255A device. Rewritten from scratch to properly support handshaking in modes 1 and 2. Refactored SG-1000a driver to use the new implementation.

- 0.132u1: Fabio Priuli fixed drivers using the TMS9928 (type of frameskip causes crash).

- 0.127u4: Curt Coder fixed refresh rate from 60 to 59.922747Hz and interrupts in SG-1000a driver, added 8255PPI and coin counter.

- 0.119u2: Sonikos cleaned up input ports in SG-1000 driver. Added dipswitch for the coins and service switch.

- 0.117: Zsolt Vasvari simplified code in TMS9928 video system.

- 0.116u2: Justin Kerk and Lord Nightmare updated Doki Doki Penguin Land to correctly use the SN76489 instead of the SN76496, which was a later design.

- 0.113u1: Speedfreak and Mike Ellery added 'Demo Sounds' dipswitch.

- 0.111u5: Aaron Giles removed gross TMS9928a configuration in place of more standard techniques. Updates the SG-1000A driver accordingly.

- 0.111u4: R. Belmont fixed TMS9928 so it recalculates the pattern mask when its dependancies change so we don't end up in weird half-modes.

- 0.109u1: Tomasz Slanina and Guru added Doki Doki Penguin Land (Sega 1985).

- 25th September 2006: Tomasz Slanina - Added (recently dumped by Guru) Doki Doki Penguin Land to Sega sg1000a driver.

- 24th September 2006: Guru - Doki Doki Penguin Land arrived a few days ago from Japan with the latest PCB shipment. Thanks to Dyq and BNathan for the funds used to purchase most of the Mahjong games.
