MAMEMAME v0.174 is released. MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

What's news in MAME:

Source Changes
-chdman.cpp: fix for code that expects to be able to dereference a
pointer that it knows may be null [Vas Crabb]

-redumped Atomiswave BIOS, confirmed good, added information
[Brizzo, MetalliC]

-screen: Add svg shapes pre-computation [O. Galibert]

-plugins/layout: layout embedded script helper plugin [Carl]

-h8: Add dtc, dma, watchdog (WIP) [O. Galibert]

-h8: Fixes, lots of [O. Galibert]

-cybiko: Make work a little emore, add v1 flash [O. Galibert]

-a5200: fixed regression when loading headerless carts from fullpath.
[Fabio Priuli]

-neogeo.cpp: huge clean up of the cartslot code in order to better
exploit slot devices: [Fabio Priuli]
* moved cart-specific components to the carts itself removing the
fake protection devices from the main system, since they never
belonged there
* removed hacky rom region destruction/construction when a new cart
is inserted, replacing it with proper bank pointers to the carts
(except for ymsnd and ymsnd.deltat region which will require
modernization of the ym devices)
* started re-organization of bootleg boards emulation, so to reduce
the need of collapsing everything into a single cart type with
multiple protection devices, more work is needed

-neopcb.cpp: moved to a separate source file the emulation for JAMMA
PCB versions of a few neogeo games, since they don't have a cartslot.
[Fabio Priuli]

-neogeo.xml: added information about Japanese titles and release dates
to the software list and aligned the list to the driver. [Fabio Priuli]

-cybiko: Remove the ram mirror, it hides when the code fails [O.Galibert]

-vector: Move clipping to avgdvg, the only user. Simplify [O. Galibert]

-nes.cpp: removed configuration settings to enforce sprite limit and to
turn off drawing of top/bottom 8 lines: the code to make these work
was removed before 0.106 and the option were doing nothing since then.

[Corrado Tomaselli]

-Make watchdog timer a separate device [AJR]

-A few addition to A800 software lists [K1W1]

finding the problem in our core emulation. [Fabio Priuli]
