Change to consistently use Intel notation for hex values in TMS32010

disassembler, rather than a mix of Motorola and Intel notation.

[Lord Nightmare]


Z80: Check for NOP in interrupt mode 0. This allows code like ei /

halt / di to work correctly. A better solution would be to implement

full support for arbitrary opcodes in mode 0. [Dirk Best]


igs017.c update [Luca Elia]

- Merged in some IGS031 based games (igs_m68.c, tarzan.c)

- Implemented tiles flip x and video disable

(Top Racer) sets. Removed Namco devices from bootlegs which don't

have them. [David Haywood]


Added save state support to plygonet.c and the DSP56156 CPU core.

[Andrew Gardner]


Updated SN76489/A to have correct PRNG waveforms (a 0 bit was missing

at the beginning, and beginning of SN76489 waveform was all 1s

instead of 0s as measured on hardware). Added SN94624 (same as

SN76489). [Lord Nightmare, plgDavid (David Viens)]


IGS blitter based games update [Luca Elia]

i386 core fixes: [barry Rodewald]

* Added Nested Task flag, and I/O Privilege flags. They aren't

implemented in any way, but can now be set or reset. Can be used

to detect a 80386 or later CPU.

* Implemented ENTER instruction.

* Made IRQ vectors treated as 8 bytes when in protected mode, and

made the addresses pushed onto the stack 32-bit if the gate

descriptor used is a 386 interrupt or trap gate (also when in

protected mode, will always be 16-bit if in real mode).


Fixes to default mapping as well as comment/information fixes for

Mole Attack [M.A.S.H./Tafoid]


Identify puyoj set as Rev B and correct various rom names.

[smitdogg, Dumping Union]

much improved)

* Added the alt tilemap layout used by f1superb for the backgrounds

* Added f1superb notes and IRQ generation code from nuapete


Tournament Solitaire (pcat_dyn) improvements [luigi30]:

* Added newer version of toursol, renamed existing to toursol1 and

the new one is now toursol

* Set toursol CPU speed to 40MHz


Many improvements to konamigx rendering, specifically improving

Soccer Superstars and Rushing Hero. [David Haywood, Angelo Salese]


Implemented input buffer copy protection in Rushing Heroes, game is

now somewhat playable with heavy gfx glitches [Angelo Salese]

bank in Run & Gun 2 / Slam Dunk 2 [Angelo Salese]


Fixed sprite ROM loading in Slam Dunk 2 [David Haywood]

Control fix for Strike Gunner S.T.G. to allow a 3rd button mapping

Trashed the old pre-accurate-clocking STEP based sample averaging

scheme from sn76489 and friends, vastly simplifying the code. Made

the output bipolar rather than only above the 0 line. Added missing

statement to the get_safe_token function for the recently added

SN94624. [Lord Nightmare]


Many N64 RDP fixes.

[angrylion, Ziggy, Gonetz, Orkin, DrgnMndd, Harmony]


Cleaned up toaplan2 V25 support, enabled Batsugun V25 and added
