EmuCR: higanhigan v103r08 is complied. higan (formerly bsnes) is a Nintendo multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:
- Famicom
- Super Famicom
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Game Boy Advance

higan also supports the following subsystems:
- Super Game Boy
- BS-X Satellaview
- Sufami Turbo

higan Changelog:
- emulator: improved aspect correction accuracy by using
floating-point calculations
- emulator: added videoCrop() function, extended videoSize() to take
cropping parameters¹
- tomoko: the overscan masking function will now actually resize the
viewport²
- gba/cpu: fixed two-cycle delay on triggering DMAs; not running DMAs
when the CPU is stopped
- md/vdp: center video when overscan is disabled
- pce/vce: resize video output from 1140x240 to 1120x240
- tomoko: resize window scaling from 326x240 to 320x240
- tomoko: changed save slot naming and status bar messages to indicate
quick states vs managed states
- tomoko: added increment/decrement quick state hotkeys
- tomoko: save/load quick state hotkeys now save to slots 1-5 instead
of always to 0
- tomoko: increased overscan range from 0-16 to 0-24 (in case you want
to mask the Master System to 240x192)

¹: the idea here was to decouple raw pixels from overscan masking.
Overscan was actually horrifically broken before. The Famicom outputs at
256x240, the Super Famicom at 512x480, and the Mega Drive at 1280x480.
Before, a horizontal overscan mask of 8 would not reduce the Super
Famicom or Mega Drive by nearly as much as the Famicom. WIth the new
videoCrop() function, the internals of pixel size distortions can be
handled by each individual core.

²: furthermore, by taking optional cropping information in
videoSize(), games can scale even larger into the viewport window. So
for example, before the Super Famicom could only scale to 1536x1440. But
by cropping the vertical resolution by 6 (228p effectively, still more
than NTSC can even show), I can now scale to 1792x1596. And wiht aspect
correction, that becomes a perfect 8:7 ratio of 2048x1596, giving me
perfectly crisp pixels without linear interpolation being required.

Errata: for some reason, when I save a new managed state with the SFC
core, the default description is being set to a string of what looks to
be hex numbers. I found the cause ... I'll fix this in the next release.

Note: I'd also like to hide the "find codes..." button if cheats.bml
isn't present, as well as update the SMP TEST register comment from
smp/timing.cpp
