    Submission Message
    WolfMame v209, default track settings.
    Sloppy game play, but a better score than the other numerous runs I've had. This is tops on my list of games to revisit down the road.
    Thanks for adjudicating!

    - The two unknown writes for the MCU are probably watchdog reset and irq acknowledge, but they don't seem to work as expected. During the first few frames they are written out of order and hooking them up in the usual way causes the MCU to stop receiving interrupts.
    - Hardware: 1986 Namco games
    - We are using an unusually high CPU interleave factor (800) to avoid hangs in rthunder. The two 6809 in this game synchronize using a semaphore at 5606/5607 (CPU1) 1606/1607 (CPU2). CPU1 clears 5606, does some quick things, and then increments 5606. While it does its quick things (which require about 40 clock cycles) it expects CPU2 to clear 5607. Raising the interleave factor to 1000 makes wndrmomo crash during attract mode. I haven't investigated on the cause.
    - There are two watchdogs, one per CPU (or maybe three). Handling them separately is necessary to allow entering service mode without manually resetting in rthunder and genpeitd: Only one of the CPUs stops writing to the watchdog.
    - The sprite hardware buffers spriteram: The program writes the sprite list to offsets 4-9 of every 16-byte block, then at the end writes to offset 0x1ff2 of sprite RAM to signal the chip that the list is complete. The chip will copy the list from 4-9 to 10-15 and use it from there. This has not been verified on the real hardware, but it is the most logical way of doing it. Emulating this behaviour and not using an external buffer is important in rthunder: When you insert a coin, the whole sprite RAM is cleared, but 0x1ff2 is not written to. If we buffered spriteram to an external buffer, this would cause dangling sprites because the buffer would not be updated.
    - 0.205: Removed MC6809E, MC6809E, HD63701, GFXDECODE, NAMCO_63701X and PALETTE MCFG macros [Ryan Holtz].
    - 0.204: Removed YM2151 MCFG macros [Osso].
    - 0.203: Removed HD63701 MCFG macros [AJR].
    - 0.202: Removed WATCHDOG MCFG macros [Osso].
    - 0.199: Misc device finder / private members [David Haywood].
    - 0.193: Replaced M6809 CPU1/2 with MC6809E.
    - 0.164: Demacroify address maps and clean up ROM loading [Alex Jackson]. Enabled save state support in Namco System 86 driver now that it works [Osso].
    - 0.163: Preparation for save state support and switched driver to configured banking. Not enabled because Return of Ishtar's MCU fails spectacularly on reload [Osso].
    - 0.153: Fixed flipscreen in Namco System 86 driver after core changes and added SCREEN_RAW_PARAMs [Alex Jackson]. Changed VSync to 60.606061 Hz.
    - 0.148u1: Modernized Namco 63701X sound device [Andrew Gardner].
    - 0.143: Wilbert Pol fixed immediate crash while using -DEBUG in Namco System 86 driver.
    - 0.139u3: Added includes\namcos86.h.
    - 0.139u1: Atari Ace removed global variables from NAMCO sound core.
    - 0.130u3: Kanikani added DIP locations to Namco System 86 driver.
    - 0.129u1: Aaron Giles added new function gfx_element_set_source_clip() to specify a source clipping rectangle for any element. This replaces the nasty hacks that were being used in Namco System 86 driver to achieve similar behaviors.
    - 0.122u7: Changed HD63701 CPU3 clock speed to 6144000 Hz.
    - 0.121u1: Changed palettesize from 512 to 4096 colors.
    - 0.107u3: Properly documented and connected the CUS60 MCU code in the System 86 driver [Brian Troha].
    - 0.93: Added clock parameter to Namco CUS30 sound (24000 Hz).
    - 0.89: Nicola Salmoria updated Namco System 86 (which uses the same sprite hardware as Namcos System 1) to the latest code. Curiously, this introduces sprite/sprite priority issues in Wonder Momo. Nicola puzzled by this.
    - 0.80: Nicola Salmoria understood how sprite RAM buffering works, this fixes sprite lag but causes a glitch in rthunder (which might be correct behaviour) in baraduke.c and namcos86.c. Nicola Salmoria totally rewritten the 63701X emulation and moved it to a separate module. Fixed silence compression, this improves quality in some samples; supported volume control.
    - 21st January 2003: Acho A. Tang improved sprite clipping and fixed hangs in the Namco System 86 driver.
    - 22nd June 2002: Acho A. Tang fixed a few more problems in the Namco System 86 driver.
    - 21st June 2002: Acho A. Tang fixed the sprite lag in Namco System 86 and System 1 drivers.
    -  2nd May 2002: Satoshi Suzuki fixed a graphics bug in the Namco System 86 driver.
    - 0.37b12: Changed VSync to 60.606060Hz.
    - 0.36b8: Fixed priorities in wndrmomo and genpeitd [E. Watanabe].
    - 0.36b7: Added Custom sound.
    -  7th April 1999: Nicola Salmoria has updated Rolling Thunder driver to work on the new 6800 (not 68000 ;-) core, but music speed is still sometimes screwed.
    - 25th October 1999: Eisuke Watanabe fixed priority problems in Namco System 86 games.
    - 0.35b13: Changed rthunder.c to namcos86.c driver.
    - 0.35b1: Added rthunder.c driver and vidhrdw\rthunder.c (Jimmy Hamm, Phil Stroffolino, Ernesto Corvi).

    Human interpretation:
    Time calc: 06:13:08 + (66246 frames ÷ 60.606061Hz @ 100% [18:13.06]) = 06:31:21 vs zip mod 06:31:21 [please allow for timezone differences]
