MAME 0.221

 

Our fourth release of the year, MAME 0.221, is now ready.  There are lots of interesting changes this time.  We’ll start with some of the additions.  There’s another load of TV games from JAKKS Pacific, Senario, Tech2Go and others.  We’ve added another Panorama Screen Game & Watch title: this one features the lovable comic strip canine Snoopy.  On the arcade side, we’ve got Great Bishi Bashi Champ and Anime Champ (both from Konami), Goori Goori (Unico), the prototype Galun.Pa! (Capcom CPS), a censored German version of Gun.Smoke, a Japanese location test version of DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou, and more bootlegs of Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Final Fight, Galaxian, Pang! 3 and Warriors of Fate.

In computer emulation, we’re proud to present another working UNIX workstation: the MIPS R3000 version of Sony’s NEWS family.  NEWS was never widespread outside Japan, so it’s very exciting to see this running.  F.Ulivi has added support for the Swedish/Finnish and German versions of the HP 86B, and added two service ROMs to the software list.  ICEknight contributed a cassette software list for the Timex NTSC variants of the Sinclair home computers.  There are some nice emulation improvements for the Luxor ABC family of computers, with the ABC 802 now considered working.

Other additions include discrete audio emulation for Midway’s Gun Fight, voice output for Filetto, support for configurable Toshiba Pasopia PAC2 slot devices, more vgmplay features, and lots more Capcom CPS mappers implemented according to equations from dumped PALs.  This release also cleans up and simplifies ROM loading.  For the most part things should work as well as or better than they did before, but MAME will no longer find loose CHD files in top-level media directories.  This is intentional – it’s unwieldy with the number of supported systems.

As usual, you can get the source and 64-bit Windows binary packages from the download page.  This will be the last month where we use this format for the release notes – with the increase in monthly development activity, it’s becoming impractical to keep up.
