MAME 0.121u4

This release comes with the promotion of Mortal Kombat 4 from not working status and lot of updates to the Midway Zeus.

Quote from: MAMEDEV.ORG
A new update to MAME 0.121 has been posted. With this update we now have support for a number of new and rare Namco System 12 games (not all working), some nice new SCSP updates, improved Star Wars accuracy, and a mostly working Mortal Kombat 4. We’re nearing the end of the 0.122 development cycle, so be sure to report any significant bugs over at MAMETesters. Thanks!

Here you have the What's New so you can check other details and improvements.  :smilie:

Source Changes
Added new option -update_in_pause which enables updating the screen
bitmap while the game is paused. This is useful for debuggin in
some scenarios (and gets in the way in others). [Olivier Galibert]

Added new VIDEO_TYPE_NONE to indicate that there is no screen, and
fixed internal UI displays to ignore resolution parameters if it is
specified. [Dirk Best]

Added missing consts to the files in the emu, lib, and osd
directories. [Atari Ace]

Updated drivers to use const structs and arrays where possible.
[Atari Ace]
