0.94u2
------

Changes from Aaron Giles
------------------------

mame.c: updated documentation
cps1.c: fixed QSound routing
cps2.c: fixed QSound routing
itech32.c: fixed Driver's Edge colors (red/blue were swapped)
segaorun.c: many tweaks based on schematics
- connected some outputs via 8255 PPI
- fixed IRQ handling to match schematics
- hooked up watchdog, global mute
- fixed IRQ2 timing
segaxbd: tweaks
- added hack to make GP Rider boot; input bug prevents full playability
- fixed IRQ handling to match schematics
- hooked up watchdog, sound reset, and global mute
- hooked up dummy CPU for running SMGP communications
- reduced interleave on all games except LOF
segaybd: tweaks
- fixed CPU speeds according to schematics
- hooked up global mute
- reduced interleave on all games
machine/segaic16.c: changed divide-by-zero case to return a value
vidhrdw/segaic16.c: several updates
- implemented Y-board sprite priorities (not fully understood, but
seems to work)
- found missing 8th bit in Outrun/X-board sprite pitch
- implemented Outrun/X-board road priorities according to logic dump
from Leopardcats
- hooked up road RAM double buffering that was missing for
Outrun/X-board
- disabled direct scanline mode for Outrun road, which doesn't support
it

Fixed sample playback glitch

Fixed othunder sound clipping

Fixed Batrider sound

Fixed Dream Shopper crash

Added sound balancing assistance display to debug builds

cpuintrf.c cleanup

Removed some unwanted clamping code from sound core

Adjusted Frogger volume

Changes from Brian Troha




Changes from Derrick Renaud
---------------------------

Added proper watchdogs to
Bosconian, Galaga, Pole Position, Xevious

Fixed Wiggie Waggle crash

Fixed some speaker settings

schaser - updated sounds to include missle effect and
fix dot sounds per schematics.

SN76477 emulation - fixed bug where gain was 3x more
then it should be, causing effects to clip for 2/3rds
of the time.

SN76477 emulation - fixes the attack time for one-shot
envelope mode.

Fixed crash in crash, ripcord and robotbwl and added
sample support to them. Samples not currently
recorded.

robotbwl - added discrete simulation for footsteps

crash - added discrete simulation for beeper


Changes from Nathan Woods
-------------------------

src/sndintrf.c:
src/sndintrf.h:
- Added entries for two MESS specific sound cores

src/sound/wavwrite.c:
src/sound/wavwrite.h:
src/sound/discrete.c:
- Changed wavwrite type from 'void *' type to an opaque pointer
'wav_file *'

src/cpu/g65816/g65816op.h:
- This patch fixes a bug whereby the CPU could switch modes without
entering the set of functions for that mode. Specifically, if a mode
change occurs it will break out of the execute function and reenter
the
correct function.

Changes from Nicola Salmoria
----------------------------

documented debug mode in TNZS

Fixed some bad gfx in Sky Lancer

Rebalanced Gyruss volume

NMK004 sound simulation

playmark.c updates
- Fixed sprite/tile priorities in World Beach Volley, and fixed SOME
priorities in Excelsior - but not all of them, the high score screen is
still wrong.
- Found bitmap enable bit, fixes girl pictures sticking in Big Twin and
Excelsior, and garbage graphics in Excelsior.
- Added rowscroll support, fixes wbeachvl37b7gre.
- As previously noted, wbeachvl37b16gre could be a genuine bug of the
original - I don't see how it could work otherwise.

Changes from Pierpaolo Prazzoli
-------------------------------

Super Slam update
- Fixed sprites
- Fixed text tilemap colors
- Fixed text tilemap scrolls
- Fixed VSync

Fixed dips in Sky Lancer

playmark.c update
- Fixed dipswitches in Excelsior
- Tweaked bitmap scroll in Excelsior
- Changed bitmap to be drawn after the fg_tilemap (this is correct in
Excelsior
and looks better in Big Twin, but looking at the service mode in Excelsior
some "good" bits are trasparent)
- Added Continue dipswtich in Big Twin



Other Changes
-------------

NMK16 dipswitch fixes [Brian Troha]
