It's time for a new FB Alpha release. This one is the biggest for quite a while with lot's of new stuff, including some shiny new drivers. As usual, you can download this version from the FB Alpha page.
There are lots of fixes and improvements, but the headline addition is the Konami work done by iq_132. As well as lot's of fixes there are lots of new Konami drivers including Asterix, Bishi Bashi, Dragonball Z, G.I. Joe, Lethal Enforcers, Mystic Warriors, Shaolins Road, Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa, Yie-Ar Kung Fu and Xexex. Older Konami games have also been improved, particularly with regards to sprite drawing and shadow support.
iq_132 also ported the Raiden 2/Raiden DX driver now that the games are working in MAME. He also ported the NMK004 improvements, and along with work by dink, NMK16 games are greatly improved.
We also have some new core features, such as auto-fire, configurable system keys (pause, fast forward, etc.), support for Nebula format Alpha Blending Files (.bld) and loads more.
This quality of this release is dedicated to Zazzone, without his countless hours of testing a lot of the bugs fixed in this release wouldn't even be known about. To continue to improve the quality of future releases, be sure to report any bugs you find using the FB Alpha Bug Reporting Module.
