Even if you’re still feeling burned from Singles’ Day, Thanksgiving, and/or Black Friday, MAME 0.192 is here, and there’s plenty packed into this update. At long last, the MCU for Ping Pong King is simulated, making the game playable, and Flower now runs better than it ever did. Taito’s abstract maze game Marine Date is also emulated better than ever, although there are still some issues with collision detection. We’ve got newly dumped prototypes, including a prototype of Battlecry, and a more complete version of Grudge Match that appears to come from a location test in Italy. Many of the Aristocrat MK5 gambling machines have been redumped so the ROM checksums pass and they boot. Missing graphics in the Merit Megatouch games have been fixed.
But we know that rumours about the next part of this announcement have made lots of arcade fans excited: IGS PGM2 software is showing signs of life. I’m sure at least some of you are wondering how this was achieved. Usual suspects Morten Shearman Kirkegaard and Peter Wilhelmsen (recently featured here in connection to their success in dumping Gaelco protection programs) have built another FPGA-based rig that allowed them to dump the internal programs from the ARM CPUs for Oriental Legend 2 and Knights of Valour 2 New Legend. On top of this, there are some nice performance improvements to MAME’s MPEG audio decoding that should benefit other systems as well.
In computer system emulation, we’ve got a number of graphical fixes for FM Towns, heaps of improvements for the Tatung Einstein, No-Slot Clock support for the Apple //e family, and support for some Brazilian CoCo clones from Prológica and Codimex. There are some big updates to the PC software lists, too. The ACI Destiny Prodigy, Mephisto RISC 1MB and Mephisto RISC II chess computers are now working. Finally, the Interpro drivers have numerous improvements, including preliminary keyboard/video support.
That’s just scratching the surface – there are far more bug fixes, newly dumped system and performance improvements. You can get the source or Windows binaries from the download page.

• Allow switching between upper case/lower case character ROM with shift+Commodore key.
chdman: Use DeviceIoControl to get disk length – allows chdman to access physical drives on Windows 10. [Ted Green]
Added 32- and 64-bit population count utilities. [Vas Crabb]
Moved object finder resolution before device_start (github #2759). [Vas Crabb]

Replaced hacky Kaypro keyboard that bypassed the SIO with emulated Kaypro 10 keyboard. [Vas Crabb, rfka01, TeamEurope]
kaypro: Switched from z80dart to z80sio, hooked up BRG to SIOs, hooked up direct connections from SIOs to RS232 ports. [Vas Crabb]
z80sio updates: [Vas Crabb]
• Decoupled from device_serial_interface – it can’t support synchronous modes, on-the-fly register updates, and other features.
• Made asynchronous receive behave more like real device: check that start bit persists for half a bit interval, sample data bits mid-interval, handle invalid stop bit as described in Zilog manual, check parity and latch overrun and parity errors.
• Re-implemented break detection.
• Implemented SDLC transmission including bit stuffing, transmit CRC, abort, and underrun/end-of-message behaviour.
• Generalised synchronous transmission to other modes.
• Completely overhauled interrupt logic – vectors should be correct now.
• Improved handling of transmit and receive buffers and control lines.
• Implemented different auto-reset receive errors in MPSC vs SIO.
• Implemented enough of synchronous reception to pass uts20 loopback tests (not accurate, but helps understanding).
• Disabled automatic CRC transmission in 1-byte sync mode (necessary to pass uts20 loopback tests).
e132xs: Templated most Hyperstone register-register and immediate opcode handlers to reduce code duplication. [Vas Crabb]
• Also fixed behaviour in some corner cases including privileged register traps and SR as source in subtraction.
uts20 updates – all self-tests now pass without ROM patches: [Vas Crabb]
• Hacked in permanent loopback on SIO channel A TxD to RxD, and SIO channel B TxD to RxD and WAIT/READY to DCD+RTS.
• Implement parity poison and NMI on parity error feature.
• Corrected NVRAM width to four bits.
