 * Reading from a read register other than 0 also masks out the
    register index.

Fixed RAM fill in Seibu DMA COP command 0x116, allowing Godzilla to
boot [Angelo Salese]

Neo-Geo updates [Johnboy]:
 * burningfh - Renamed p1 to hp1
 * gowcaizr - Added correct C8 ROM
 * 8man - Tagged MVS and AES version
 * jockeygpa - Added alternate jockeygp set
 * mslug5h - Corrected chip labels

Hooked up cocktail mode and proper controls for both players in Maze
Invaders, adding button labels to describe the action of each.

General stability issues with 64-bit builds fixed for cybertnk.c 
[David Haywood]

font config stuff into function search_font_config. This is in
preparation to add ttf support to windows sdlmame build. [couriersud]

was preventing Poizone to boot [Tim Schuerewegen]

Fix most-likely-to-fail SDL_TTF version check. Added a warning if

Zero Team behaviour [O.Galibert]

plygonet.c : Fixed save state & device handler regressions. 
[Andrew Gardner]

Golden Poker driver: Added new sets, and some notes about ipc-1
daughterboard encryption [Roberto Fresca]

Preliminary simulation of text layer protection in Chouji Meikyuu
Legion [Tomasz Slanina]

League '96 [Dr. Decapitator]

superchs.c - Moved Button 6 assignment to a DIP selection which is
more appropriate for "Freeze Screen" behavior and added some missing
port names.  [Tafoid]

Updated the RSP and RDP implementations to be largely bit-perfect and
pixel-accurate. [angrylion, Harmony]

Fixed alpha compare in the N64 RDP implementation. [Harmony]

More Golden Poker driver cleanup. Added more references and
reorganized some parent-clone relationship. Added some new sets.
[Roberto Fresca]

Implemented Seibu COP macro 0x905, used for ark movements in
Legionnaire / Zero Team when a knock down occurs [Angelo Salese]

ARM7+ updates: [Tim Schuerewegen]
 * Enhanced MMU with page fault support
 * Preliminary 26-bit mode support
 * Fixed bugs with S-flag operations on R15
 * Fixed STRH involving R15
 * Support for ARM models 7500 and 920T.

Add directxor parameter to direct memory accessors. Update all callers
that manually XORed addresses to pass the XOR instead. This improves 
behavior when direct accessors hit non-RAM regions, or when watchpoints 
are used, because we now know the original, un-xored address and can 
fall back to standard read/write handlers properly. Also fixes 
glitched disassembly when read watchpoints are enabled. [Aaron Giles]

s3c24xx: some improvements and fixes [Tim Schuerewegen]

Removed public decodechar function. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed writes in the MIPS III interpreter. [MooglyGuy]

Some bulk naming cleanups across the whole source base: [Aaron Giles]
 1. MDRV_* -> MCFG_*
 2. running_device -> device_t
 3. mame_rand() -> machine->rand()
 4. memory_region() -> machine->region()->base()
 5. memory_region_length() -> machine->region()->bytes()
 6. region_info -> memory_region

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.

    SDL Mame is all great and well, but there’s no easy to use, decent front-end for it. M+GUI looks like a cheap linux application and the configuration options are messy.

    Still using MAME OS X 0.135 since 2009, but that does not run Street Fighter 3rd Strike 😦

      I also prefer to use MAME OSX. I wish Dave would make it open source, or pass the source code on to some one else who can work on it. It is a crying shame.
