AdvanceMAME v3.1 Changelog:
* Added support for SDL2. It's the new default in Linux and Windows. This results in better performance and better VSync support when running in a window manager environment like X Window or Windows. It also enables again the RGB effects. The exception is Raspberry where SDL1 still provides better performance in the X Window environment, and it's still the default option.
* More reliable Raspberry video mode setting when using programmable modes. It now uses the Raspberry VideoCore libraries to control better the system.
* More precise VSync syncronization, avoiding any missing frame.
* In MESS fixed the loading of disk image for the TI99-4A system.
* In MAME marked 'retofinv', 'svc', 'prmrsocr' and 'viostorm' as not working to trigger the use of the working clones. Also added the game 'mp_shnb3'.
* Fixed the UI flickering and a potential crash when SMP is active.
* The Linux joystick event and raw interface now support up to 32 button. Before it was only 12.
* If SMP is active, don't automatically disable the resize effect if the game is too slow. This gives a more stable 'auto' effect.
* Changed the 'sync_resample auto' to be 'emulation' instead of 'internal'. This give more stable sound when the game emulation is too slow.
* The 'display_magnify auto' option now takes into account the monitor limits to avoid over scaling.
* Restored the functionality of "-output fullscreen" option. It wasn't able anymore to find video modes.
* Added support running from a SSH shell.
* Removed the 'lq' effect. It was not really used. The 'scale2x' and 'scale2k' are faster and better.
* The RunClone menu now excludes preliminary clones if they are already filtered out in the main list.
