    WolfMame 167, default track settings.
    Played this for MGLXL, 4th place finish.
    Incredibly difficult game.. I hit this score about a week in and only came close to breaking it a handful of times over many plays.
    Thanks for adjudicating!

    0.24 [Marc Lafontaine, Steven Hugg]
    0.23 [Steven Hugg]
    - 0.187: Handler cleanup (audio\williams.cpp) [AJR].
    - 0.186: Williams Special Chip 1/2: Added pinout diagram and clarify the abbreviations to reduce confusion with similarly named chips. Fixed a comment error about SC1 vs SC2 behavior [Sean Riddle, Lord Nightmare]. Reduced tagmap lookups [Osso].
    - 0.179: Replaced DAC sound with MC1408.
    - 0.155: Changed Williams diag AU/MD button to PORT_TOGGLE [joemagiera, hap].
    - 0.154: Fixed generic_paletteram regression. Moved blaster-specific and williams2-specific stuff into subclass. Use bankdevs instead of dynamic address map modification. Reorganize code and driver state class [Alex Jackson]. Minor whitespace clean-up for alignment [Brian Troha].
    - 0.149u1: Improved Williams blitter logic and timing to match tests run on real hardware [Sean Riddle].
    - 0.145u8: Sean Riddle fixed video counter reporting on Williams games (should stay at maximum value until reset). Miodrag Milanovic fixed Williams driver regression.
    - 0.145u2: Williams blits with bit 2 set take approximately 2x as long because they are bus-shared with RAM. Should impact some timing behaviors such as later levels in Robotron, where approximately 10% of the blits are done with bit 2 set. Further refinements may be necessary but this addresses the most significant issue [Sean Riddle, Aaron Giles].
    - 0.143u4: Williams driver update [hap]: Fixed screen garbage when frameskipping. Fixed blaster background color (eg. screen flashes when hit). Changed M6808 CPU2 clock speed to 3579545 Hz.
    - 0.129u3: Nathan Woods converted 6821new device to use the module DEVCB. Updated Williams driver to remove trampoline functions.
    - 0.129u1: Nathan Woods introduced a parallel 6821 PIA implementation, as a MAME device (6821new.c). Ported the Williams driver over to use this new PIA implementation.
    - 0.128u4: Derived clocks from crystals in Williams driver [Luigi30].
    - 0.125u7: Couriersud fixed duplicated inputs.
    - 0.122u8: Aaron Giles updated Williams driver to use VIDEO_UPDATE_SCANLINE (most bitmap-based drivers should). Converted to 32bpp to catch mid-screen palette tweaks. Removed some unnecessary read/write handlers.
    - 0.122u7: Zsolt Vasvari fixed invalid memory_install_*_handler calls in drivers\williams.c. Emulated external OR circuit for all drivers using the PIA chip. This used to be internal to the PIA emulation, but, in fact, this is external logic. The PIA has two seperate INTA and INTB out lines. This fixes at least PlayBall. Changed M6808 CPU2 clock speed to 3579000 Hz in all games, except in Mystic Marathon, Turkey Shoot, Inferno and Joust 2 - 4MHz.
    - 0.115u3: Zsolt Vasvari fixed subtle behavior in handling of PIA port A. This allows for the removal of hacks in the Qix driver and the Williams driver.
    - 0.115u1: Aaron Giles added correct video timings for the Williams games. Fixed visible area and VSync to 60.096154 Hz.
    - 0.106u11: Aaron Giles added X and Y offset/scale controls for each screen. This allows you to control the actual position of the screen within its container. In order to see beyond the game-configured visible area, the game must have set up the screen size to be larger than the core visible area. The Williams drivers have been updated as an example. Eugene Jarvis mentioned that if you adjust your monitor, you can see the stack in Robotron off to the right, and now you can in MAME as well. The values configured in the OSD are saved in the config file for each game.
    - 0.101u1: Aaron Giles added save state support to the classic Williams drivers, marking them as GAME_SUPPORTS_SAVE.
    - 0.95u3: Williams driver rewrite [Aaron Giles]: Rederived all addressing from schematics. Cleaned up banking mechanisms. Fixed sound CPU clock in later games. Simplified blitter code significantly. Added timing to the blitter (just a guess right now). Implemented clipping circuits correctly. Simplified palette handling significantly. Rewrote video system to use tilemaps for later games.
    - 0.84u6: Arthur Peale fixed Williams coin inputs.
    - 0.57: Added includes\williams.h.
    -  8th December 2001: Aaron Giles fixed a bug in the Williams games' blitter, fixing Bubbles from crashing on startup.
    - 0.37b10: Changed palettesize from 272 to 256 colors.
    - 0.36b9: Added sndhrdw\williams.c/h.
    -  7th October 1999: Aaron Giles added Mayday to the Williams driver and improved the blitter for the Williams games.
    - 0.35b11: Changed M6802 CPU2 clock speed to 894750 Hz.
    - 0.35b10: Changed M6802 CPU2 clock speed to 3579000 Hz.
    - 0.35b6: Replaced M6803 CPU2 with M6808.
    -  9th March 1999: Michael Soderstrom has finally sent in the newest Williams driver with added support for Mystic Marathon, Turkey Shoot, Inferno and Joust 2.
    - 0.33b5: Added machine\ticket.h.
    - 0.33b4: Slightly reduced the visible area of the Williams games, I'm not sure which would be the correct setting though [Nicola Salmoria].
    - 0.31: Merged colony7.c with williams.c driver. Removed sndhrdw\williams.c. Added machine\ticket.c. Aaron Giles and Brad Oliver improved the blitter for the Williams games. Sinistar now works correctly. Major cleanup of the Williams drivers [Aaron Giles].
    - 0.30: Added colony7.c driver and machine\colony7.c. Aaron Giles added dirty rectangles to all Williams games. Tatsuyuki Satoh added cpu_setbankhandler_r() / cpu_setbankhandler_w() for better bank switching support. The Williams drivers take advantage of it.
    - 0.29: Added sound to all Williams games. Samples are no longer needed and may be deleted [Steven Hugg, Mirko Buffoni, Nicola Salmoria]. Several fixes and enhancements to the Williams driver [Aaron Giles].
    - 0.28: John Butler added optimizations to some Williams games.
    - 0.26a: Sound is back on Williams games.
    - 0.24: Marc Lafontaine provided drivers for Robotron, Splat, Defender, Joust, Stargate, Bubbles, Blaster and Sinistar. Bubbles doesn't start, and Sinistar do weird things at startup. The other games work very well, though. For this version I provide a set of fonts that can be used to avoid jerkiness in williams games. If you use zipped roms remember to include them in the ZIP files.
    - 0.23: Added williams.c driver, machine\williams.c, vidhrdw\williams.c and sndhrdw\williams.c. TODO: How does the blitter chip work? How often does the game generate interrupts? What is the value at 0xcb00? How do I display the fonts? Anybody have specs for the 6802/6808? Some sample sounds would be nice.
