WHATS NEW IN VERSION 3.1
------------------------

Additions / Changes

  Hiscore saving to memory card!!!
  --------------------------------

    Big thanks to smkdan for allowing the use of his code here. This is not fully
    tested and there could very well be problems. To this end and to allow the greatest
    testing possible this feature is also included in the free 3.0 version of the unibios.
    This should work in both MVS and AES mode but given scores are saved to backupRAM on
    MVS there could be extra problems. If this is the case only use the feature on AES
    hardware. There may also be issues with multigame bootleg carts.

    To enable, format the card using the unibios (must be formatted with unibios). Then set
    the last character of the cards username to '!'.

    To stop filling the hiscore tables with scores obtained using cheats, debug DIPs or patches
    high score saving will be disabled if these features are used until the system is reset.

    NOTES.
    It may not work with all games so please report issues you have.

    Puzzle Bobble
      In AES mode high scores are not loaded until the 2nd time the score table draws.


  PC-2-NEO Improvements
  ---------------------

    U.S.B. support is added and information will be made available in due course on how
    to build the hardware. Speeds to expect are 155k/sec upload and 32k/sec download.
    This spec will be ported to the NeoGeo CD system making it possible to upload
    entire homebrew/small games faster than loading from the CD.
 
    Parallel port upload and download speeds improved to around 2.5k/sec. The new PC
    client is required which is available on the homepage.


  Added ability to disable the splash screen on AES providing a memory card is present. To
    use format the card using the unibios (must be formatted with unibios). Then set
    the second from last character of the cards username to '!'.

  Stopped error message when changing games with multigame bootleg carts.

  Added the screensaver to the jukebox.

  Removed Crossed Swords protection that cleared the bios System and Region settings.
    This protection could be used in other games also.

  Removed SS4 Korean backupRAM protection.

  Removed RBFFS Korean backupRAM protection.
