- New Cheat.dat (Wayder): https://ss1.xrea.com/nekoziman.s601.xrea.com/cheat/
- banprestoms.cpp: Identified some DIPs
- bartop52.cpp and maxaflex.cpp: Fixed Atari ANTIC DLISTL and DLISTH writing to only affect the high and low byte component that is spread between m_dpage and m_doffs (videoantic.cpp). Fixes artifact colors in (MESS) Atari 800 Choplifter, Davids Midnight Magic, Lode Runner, Diamond Mine and Ultima IV.
- by35.cpp and mcr.cpp: Moved several constructors out of the header, fixed a save state issue and made outputs use finders (audioally.cpp).
- chihiro.cpp and naomi.cpp: Dumped Sega 838-13683-91 Rev.A JVS I/O (machinejvs13551.cpp)
- cromptons.cpp: Improved notes
- cv1k.cpp: Cleanup driver
- dooyong.cpp: Reduced volume for YM2151/M6295 sound and coalesced some machine configuration
- exidy.cpp: Split up state class and reduced reliance on driver init functions

- f-32.cpp
. Royal Poker 2 fixes and updates. Game is now essentially playable, but marked not working due to settings-saving issues. Hooked up M6295.
. Fixed issues with SARDI instruction (e132xse132xsdrc_ops.hxx and e132xsop.hxx), fixes Mosaic (F2 System).

- funkyjet.cpp: Moved everything into the driver file, as videofunkyjet.cpp only had one method.
- galpani3.cpp, jchan.cpp and suprnova.cpp: Fixed oob access on transcient incorrect sprites, use masking instead of % (videosknsspr.cpp). Silence watchdog access in suprnova.cpp.
- goldnpkr.cpp: Base screen parameters on how games program the CRTC. Filled in proper screen parameters for goldnpkr, witchcrd and megadpkr. There may be other games that use different parameters. Demoted megadpkr and megadpkrb to not working as they can only boot once before writing timekeeper data that prevents booting again.

- goldstar.cpp
. Decryption progress on clone Super Seven. It now gets in game but needs GFX and color fixes, plus decryption might have some error lurking.
. Point reel tilemap to the right GFX rom offset for Cherry Master 97
- kikikai.cpp: Added PCB infos and corrected DIPs. Clean up videokikikai.cpp a little.

- kinst.cpp
. Simulate CPLD for clone Killer Instinct 2 (upgrade kit) (Game now playable). Original device was reverse-engineered with a logic analyzer and test ROMs. The CPLD behaves as a slave device, returning data when selected, based on previous writes.
. Driver cleanup. Added preliminary screen raw parameters.

- konmedal68k.cpp
. Identified konslot and konslot2 (Cross Magic Mark 2 (1996) and Fruits Magic (1996)). Fixed display resolution and offsets.
. Adjusted some DIPs definitions
. Made Powerful Chance show the title screen

- meritm.cpp: Removed layer enable debug keys
- merits.cpp: Correctly identified Scorpion (Mar 24, 1992) as "Pub Time Darts II"

- missbamby.cpp
. Identified unknown game = Multy (Deta 1987). Added its PCB ASCII layout.
. Dumped the PROM for Basket

- n8080.cpp
. Merged some input ports and removed tag lookups
. Added conf setting for switching Space Fever to monochrome

- qix.cpp: Removed PIA 5 popmessage. This PIA is supposedly unused.
- redalert.cpp: Converted sound boards to devices and removed a couple of trampolines, making the driver state class considerably tidier. Tidied up the driver a little.
- royalmah.cpp: Configured banking and views for Mahjong Shinkirou Deja Vu (Japan) and Mahjong If...? [BET]

- segac2.cpp
. Decouple driver class from md_base_state (machinemegadriv.cpp and includesmegadriv.h)
. Improved Waku Waku Marine controls

- segas16b.cpp
. Revert MAME 0.231 video attributes workaround, it just causes new problems. Fixes random graphics flickering in Altered Beast (set 8) and clone Altered Beast (set 6) (ID 08065).
. Decapped and dumped I8751 MCU for clone Juuouki (set 7, Japan) (8751 317-0077), fixes music does not stop when the sequence of transformation begins (ID 04022).

- srmp2.cpp: Fixed no character voices in Super Real Mahjong Part 2/3 (includessrmp2.h) (ID 08081)

- stv.cpp
. NMI is unconditionally requested for screen clock change commands, fixes booting in (MESS + hashsaturn.xml) bigichig, capgen1, capgen4 and capgen5 (machinesmpc.cpp).
. Guard against deleting partial sectors in cmd_delete_sector_data, fixes (MESS) pstarcol crash after first attract cycle. Added fixed status for NetLink, allow (MESS) dragndrm to actually boot (on -non drc).

- taito_z.cpp: Use output finders instead of output().set_value, split up state class a little.
- tiamc1.cpp: Set games release years to 198?. Actual release dates unknown. According to one of developer Konek-Gorbunok, Billiard and Kot-Rybolov was made before 1988, Snezhnaja Koroleva after 1988.
- toaplan1.cpp, twincobr.cpp and wardner.cpp: Use single pass priority drawing for sprite vs tilemap priority. Use device-specific delegate for priority mask. Use device_video_interface to find screen (video oaplan_scu.cpp).

. acesp.cpp: Dumped the 68705P3 MCUs on 2 different types of sp.ACE fruit machine reel driver PCBs
. aristmk6.cpp: Updated documentation. Added new game_roms to Wild Africa - Millioniser (0351083, US).

- Agress - Missile Daisenryaku (Japan): Fixed Lives dipswitch
- Baby Fruits: Added year for clone Baby Fruits (25 pts version)
- Bonze Adventure: Added PCB infos
- California Chase: Dont try to use portr for half the bus width
- Carnival: Corrected PROM label and location for Carnival sets using standard PCB
- Change Lanes: Fixed steering problem, probably (ID 08075).
- Cosmic Chasm: Combined source files, added I/O port finder and reduced audio levels to avoid hitting the limiter.
- Cyberstorm: Cleaned up inputs and added comments to match observations and behaviours in test mode
- Darius: Added Continue Price dipswitch to clone Darius (US, rev 2) (ID 08077)
- Dead Connection: Fixed mislabled and misassigned dipswitches (ID 08059)
- Fantasy Zone: Revert MAME 0.231 video attributes workaround for Fantasy Zone, it just causes new problems.
- Kart Duel: Redumped data roms
- Marvel Land: Made clone Marvel Land (Japan) the parent, the US prototype is an earlier incomplete build, it ends abruptly, lacks any end credits, and is missing many of the levels plus various other incomplete elements, see https://tcrf.net/Marvel_Land_(Arcade).
- Missile Command: Eliminated space.device() calls
- Multi Baby: Added basic mappings

. barni.cpp: Added layout. WIP.
. gts1.cpp: Various fixes. Still not working though. Descriptions for DIPs.
. s3.cpp, s4.cpp, s6.cpp and s6a.cpp: Use output finders instead of output().set_value, reduced tag lookups.
. spirit76.cpp: Added a layout. Mostly working. Fixed knocker when free game attained.
. mrgame.cpp: Added tilemap drawing - Dakar works properly and World Cup 90 has some issues. Fixed 5bpp sprite layout, only put attribute handler over tilemap attribute area of object RAM. Merged Motor Show (set 1) and Motor Show (set 2) and added a third BIOS rom set (cpu_2.ic13b and cpu_2.ic14b). Added new roms to Mac Attack.

- Pipeline: Hook up sound communications and YM2203. Fixed sound PPI mapping
- Play Sonic 4: Added inputs and DIPs as per test mode
- Pole Position II: "Freeze" dipswitch works fine (ID 08090)
- Roller Jammer: Added screen raw parameters. Modernized MSM5205 hookup, fixes broken "SOUND TEST" in service mode (ID 08076). Added missing input.
- ROLLing eX.tre.me: Mostly playable driver. Various bug fixes to the TMS320C82 core. TODO: TMS320C82 parallel processors are not emulated. PP0 transfers polygon data from a software FIFO to the graphics processor. This is currently HLEd. PP1 most likely does sound mixing. This is currently not emulated. 93C66 EEPROM. Alpha blending (probably based on palette index like on gaelco3d). Minor Z-buffer issues. Wrong textures in a few places (could be a CPU core bug). Networking.
- Rumba Lumber: Corrected main CPU clock, fixes sound regression.
- Space Harrier: Hook up I8751 MCU and removed simulation. The MCU for clone Space Harrier (8751 315-5163) is handcrafted and marked BAD_DUMP. There is a slight issue with the initial synchronisation, so there is a hack to ignore the problematic write.
- Speedway: Redumped u29 gfx1 rom
- Taxi Driver: Reduced tag map lookups in driver
- Vigilante: Swapped punch/kick buttons to match with arcade cabinet (ID 08078)
- Wonder Planet: Decapped and dumped MCU. Removed simulation and clean ups.
- Fixed rom names in aristmk6.cpp, namcos1.cpp, segaatom.cpp, segas16b.cpp and vicdual.cpp
- Dipswitch fixes in banprestoms.cpp, blockout.cpp, cybstorm.cpp, d9final.cpp, darius.cpp, gts1.cpp, kikikai.cpp, konmedal68k.cpp, plsonic4.cpp, polepos.cpp, spirit76.cpp and taito_f2.cpp
