 New MAME Guide At EasyEmu

Hi All

After a seven year wait, I've finally finished updating the MAME guide on EasyEmu. It's completely up to date with the current version of MAME and has been totally re-written.

I'm sure it's full of spelling mistakes and inaccuracies so please leave feedback in the comments underneath if you find anything.

I hope you guys enjoy the update and any newbies, enjoy an easy guide for MAME.

 Vas: Let's Have Fun With DSPs (QSound WIP)

The DSP16A is an interesting chip. It's like the great granddaddy of VLIW and EPIC.

    • The instruction set is explicitly parallel, and it can manage a 16*16-32 multiply, a 32+36-36 or 36+36-36 addition, a 12+12-12 addition, a 16+16-16 (9+9-9 on DSP16) addition, two 8-bit increments, a ROM fetch, and a RAM access in a single cycle. Yes, the word is "and", although there are limitations on the exact combinations you can use.

    • There are effectively no general-purpose registers - every register has an assigned role, although in some cases a few registers are interchangeable (e.g. the two accumulators and four RAM pointers).

    • It has dedicated silicon for saturation and rounding.

    • It doesn't actually have a fused multiply/add instruction (aka FMA, multiply/accumulate, MAC) - if you issue a multiply and an add in the same instruction, the add operates on the previous multiplication's product.

    • It has an on-board pseudorandom sequence generator.

    • It normally overlaps the ROM fetch for the next instruction with the current instruction, but it has a manually managed 15-instruction cache in the control unit. When executing from cache, it can overlap a ROM data fetch for the next instruction with the current instruction for higher throughput. By executing a tight loop from cache, you can make a very fast FIR filter with coefficients in ROM.

    • Although the DSP16 can only use internal program ROM or external program memory, but not both at the same time, the DSP16A can access external program memory while the internal ROM is enabled (QSound uses this to read sample data).

    • It supports multi-master time-division multiplexed synchronous serial protocols, making it ideal for processing circuit-switched ... (Read More)

 DU Fundraiser: Opa Opa - Done

ShouTime needed help paying for a really rare original version of the Sega classic Opa Opa that was not encrypted and has earlier part numbers than the game's main release. I don't know what changes it might have, I didn't even know it existed before. Thanks to Charles MacDonald, it's already been paid for and the fundraiser is completed and we'll get it in MAME soon!
