Log Message:
Update to 0.8.A:

        NES:  Cleaned up the iNES loading code a bit, and added
        support for WRAM on a few mappers that nominally shouldn't
        have WRAM, enabled if the battery-backed bit is set in the
        iNES header.  Fixes "Family BASIC", and probably
        a few bootleg games as well.

        NES:  Added partially-broken support for mapper 163.

        NES:  Added support for mapper 241.

        Fixed string constant-to-(char *) problems in drivers/cheat.cpp

        Added setting "osd.state_display_time", to control the
        length of time, in milliseconds, the save state/movie
        screen is displayed after selecting a save state or movie.

        The most recently-saved save state slot will now be colored
        differently when selecting a save state slot.
        Increased the brightness of non-empty save state slots.
        Empty save state slots are now black instead of being
        partially transparent.

        PC-FX:  Fixed bugs in "Play Audio Track Index" and "Read
        Subchannel" MMC commands, fixing the totally broken
        cinematic sequences in "Boundary Gate".  There may still
        be bugs in these commands that don't cause any known
        problems with games, so I will need to run tests on a real

        GBA: An error loading the custom colormap file is now
        treated as fatal.

        Win32:  The German and Russian translation files are now
        included in the Win32 precompiled binary distribution
        ZIP file.  Note that Mednafen always assumes the locale to
        be UTF-8, so the stdio.txt file will need to be
        opened with a viewer that can handle UTF-8(though filenames
        with non-7-bit-ASCII components will appear fubar).
        (I am aware that assuming the locale's character encoding
        to always be UTF-8 is a design flaw with
        various insidious consequences when the encoding is not

        Updated the Russian translation with the translation done
        by rubicon.

        Added configure script option "--enable-altivec/--disable-altivec
        (default: enabled)" for compiling on
        PowerPC architectures where AltiVec is not supported, or
        causes problems.  This configure script option is
        untested, however.

        Input for the virtual device on virtual port N will be
        disabled when the buttons on the virtual device on virtual
        port N are being configured.  The last button pressed when
        in button configuration may still be taken as
        virtual device input, however(a fix for this would be too
        invasive, and so will be done in the 0.9.x unstable

        PCE:  Added several missing input-related state variables
        to save states, fixing several netplay/movie
        desynchronization issues under certain situations.

        Fixed a bug when creating an SDL source surface, whose
        negative effects(clipping rightmost columns) could be
        triggered when the "sdl" vdriver setting was used with
        certain xscale and yscale settings that would
        cause a 1:1 pixel copy operation.

        PC-FX:  Improved PSG LFO emulation again(Tyoushin Heiki
        Zeroigar uses it for some sound effects, other
        games likely use it as well in similar roles).

        PCE:  Improved PSG LFO emulation again(Hanii in the Sky,
        Juuouki, and Flash Hiders use LFO).

        PCE: Altered the Street Fighter 2 autodetection code to be
        data-agnostic.  The SF2 mapper will now be enabled for
        any ROM images 2MiB and over in size.

        Fixed a call to putenv(), to pass a static character array
        initialized to a string constant instead of a string
        constant directly.

        Fixed a few argument descriptions(invoked with the -help
        command-line switch) that weren't properly gettextized.

        Debugger:  Fixed a bug in the trace log code.  It would
        cause the emulator to lock up if the user pressed
        Enter/Return in the prompt popup without any text in the input field.

        SMS:  Removed the old unused Z80 emulator code from when
        SMS Plus was assimilated.
