    WIP:
    
    
    - 0.188: Documented a different program ROMs arrangement [Osso].
    
    
    - 0.184: kazblox moved clone Lady Bug (bootleg on Galaxian hardware) from Galaxold to Galaxian drivers.
    
    
    - 0.181: Osso renamed clone 'Lady Bug (bootleg set 2)' to 'Coccinelle (bootleg of Lady Bug, set 2)', since the attract doesn't show any title, but the manual names is Coccinelle. Renamed (ladybgb2) to (ladybugb2).
    
    
    - 0.145u4: Tafoid got rid of bogus inputs for Lady Bug, there are no fire buttons at all, just controller and start buttons.
    
    
    - 0.136u3: Stephane Humbert fixed dipswitches and inputs (after verification of the Z80 code) for clone Lady Bug (bootleg on Galaxian hardware).
    
    
    - 0.126u5: Brian Troha corrected rom names with PCB locations for Lady Bug and verified the dump against an original Universal Lady Bug PCB. Added information about the Universal PCB number and prom type.
    
    
    - 0.125u5: Changed description of clone (bootleg on Galaxian hardware) to 'Lady Bug (bootleg on Galaxian hardware)'.
    
    
    - 0.123u2: Changed palettesize to 96 colors.
    
    
    - 0.122u8: Changed description of clone (bootleg) to 'Lady Bug (bootleg set 1)'.
    
    
    - 0.122u4: Zsolt Vasvari fixed two player game mode.
    
    
    - 0.115u4: Replaced SN76496 sound with SN76489.
    
    
    - 16th October 2006: Mr. Do - Through a co-operative effort with ClassicArcadeGrafix, I will able to occasionally borrow art for adding Lady Bug bezel.
    
    
    - 0.97u2: Sonikos added clone Lady Bug (bootleg Set 2).
    
    
    - 16th June 2005: f205v dumped Lady Bug (bootleg set 2).
    
    
    - 0.73: Mike Coates added clone Ladybug (bootleg on Galaxian hardware). Input ports incomplete.
    
    
    - 28th August 2003: Mike Coates added a version of Lady Bug running on Galaxian hardware and Video Pool to the Galaxian driver.

    - 0.37b14: Jeoff Krontz changed 4-way emulation on a 8-way joystick to "sticky" mode. This makes Lady Bug and other 4-way games more playable. Explanation here: http://www.rentrondesign.homestead.com/JoyPrimer.html.
    
    
    - 0.27: InputPorts now can automatically handle VBlank bits [Nicola Salmoria]. No more need to write custom code. Lady Bug use this feature. MAKE SURE TO DELETE LADYBUG\LADYBUG.DSW AND LADYBUG\LADYBUG.CFG, OTHERWISE THE GAME WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY.
    
    
    - 0.18: Nicola Salmoria finally added some lousy, very inaccurate, noise to the 76496 emulator. This affects Lady Bug.
    
    
    - 0.13: Nicola Salmoria added high score saving to Lady Bug.
    
    
    - 0.03: Lady Bug should run a little faster on slow machines.

Known issues: The noise generator is not emulated yet. Thanks to Paul Swan for the information on the Lady Bug sound hardware. Thanks to Allard van der Bas (avdbas@wi.leidenuniv.nl) for starting the Arcade Emulation Programming Repository at http://valhalla.ph.tn.tudelft.nl/emul8.

    TODO:
    
    
    - Coin lockouts are missing. The game only accepts 9 coins, so there has to be a lockout call somewhere.
    
    
    - Space Raider: Decode cpu#2 writes to port 0x30 and 0x38 - resistors for sound, decode cpu#2 writes to port 0x28-0x2f - ???, examine other bits from cpu#2 write to 0xe800 and one unknown dip
    
    
    
    
    NOTES:
    
    
    - Lady Bug doesn't have VBlank interrupts. Interrupts are still used by the game: but they are related to coin slots. Left slot generates a NMI, Right slot an IRQ.
    
    
    
    
    WIP:
    
    
    - 0.189: Added new 74LS259 device [AJR].
    
    
    - 0.174: Splitted redclash from ladybug [Miodrag Milanovic].
    
    
    - 0.163: Lady Bug speedup [Miodrag Milanovic].
    
    
    - 0.146: hap fixed Lady Bug driver regression. This fixed all sets in Lady Bug driver hang/freeze at boot (except sraider).
    
    
    - 0.135u3: Added includes\ladybug.h. Fabio Priuli added driver data struct and save states to the Lady Bug driver.
    
    
    - 0.123u4: Updated Lady Bug driver to use PORT_CHANGED for coinage [Zsolt Vasvari].
    
    
    - 0.115u4: Lord Nightmare fixed cavenger, dorodon, ladybug and snapjack to explicitly use the SN76489 now that it behaves differently from the SN76496.
    
    
    - 0.31: Removed sndhrdw\ladybug.c.
    
    
    - 0.28: Removed machine\ladybug.c. All-new handling of rotation [Nicola Salmoria]: The GameDriver structure now has a "orientation" field which allows driver writers to handle fairly easily games which run on the same hardware but with different orientations. Crazy Climber/Crazy Kong, Lady Bug/Snap Jack/Cosmic Avenger and the Gottlieb games are examples of drivers using this feature. Rotation is handled automatically by gfxdecode(), which creates a prerotated charset, and drawgfx(), which swaps the arguments appropriately. Drivers which use only the standard functions to render their display will automatically handle the "orientation" field. If a driver writes directly to the bitmap, it must handle the rotation itself. IMPORTANT NOTE: osd_create_bitmap() swaps width and height when a rotation is requested. Take that into account or you'll risk trashing memory. IMPORTANT NOTE TO PORTERS: remember to update osd_create_bitmap() and osd_create_display() to take into account the rotation. Check msdos.c to see how this must be done.
    
    
    - 0.18: Added sndhrdw\sn76496.c/h.
    
    
    - 0.12: Added vidhrdw\generic.c/h.
    
    
    - 0.06: Changed ladybug\driver.c, ladybug\machine.c, ladybug\vidhrdw.c and ladybug\sndhrdw.c to drivers\ladybug.c, machine\ladybug.c, vidhrdw\ladybug.c and sndhrdw\ladybug.c.
    
    
    - 0.01: Added ladybug\driver.c, ladybug\machine.c, ladybug\vidhrdw.c and ladybug\sndhrdw.c.
