MAME 0.202 Released

MAME 0.202

You know what day it is? It’s MAME 0.202 release day! This month’s
release is chock full of new versions of previously supported games.
We’ve added the Japanese releases of Namco’s Four Trax, and Taito’s
Midnight Landing, the European release of Kaneko’s Gals Panic 4, a very
rare unprotected version of Orca’s River Patrol, a version of
Cinematronics’ Star Castle for cocktail cabinets, and a newer version of
Konami’s WEC Le Mans 24. Perhaps the most interesting new version of an
arcade game to be added is the final release version of Sega’s Toki no
Senshi – Chrono Soldier. It turns out previously-supported set was a
somewhat unfinished prototype.

Improvements include more supported drawing modes for PlayStation and
PowerVR2 (NAOMI/Dreamcast), improved graphics in Super Shanghai Dragon’s
eye, and fixes for sprite priority in Beast Busters and Pac-Land. The
CRT simulation shaders now correctly apply the defocus effect after the
scanline effect. Possibly the most exciting improvements this month are
in UNIX workstation emulation. InterPro networking is now supported,
and it’s now possible to install and run SunOS 4.1.4 on emulated sun4c
systems including the SunView graphical environment.

There have been lots of other improvements, including more Apple II
fixes, enough fixes to make the Jugend+Technik CompJU+TEr usable,
further improvements to NEC PC-FX sound, and another supported US NeoGeo
MVS BIOS. Oh, and if you’re a fan of gambling games, Lucky Ball 96 from
Sielcon Games in Argentina is now playable.

You can read all about the changes in this release in the whatsnew file:

That's an understatement...raster effects actually look nice now.
