   - two keyboard variants

- help: full specs on all of the above newly emulated controllers
- help: full specs on further add-ons (r.o.b., data recorder, 3d glasses)
- help: full specs on PC10, VS System, FamicomBox
- gui: file menu: memorizes recent_files, and this or that other new detail
- fixed battery backed sram saving (uses cartname.sav instead xxxx.sav)
- debug: always executes illegal opcodes (even when warn-on-bad-stuff enabled)
- speedup: suppresses freshen_video when rewriting -same- CHR-bank values
- timing: uses 1024hz mmtime (smoother than 18Hz timer) (more CPU load though)
- sound: optionally dummy stereo mode (for bugged Win98-Realtek-VIA mono-driver)
- bugfix: MMC3 TQROM (mapper 119) emulates CHR-ROM/CHR-RAM selection
- bugfix: MMC3 TLSROM (mapper 118) NT-select by bit7 of CHR-bank numbers
- bugfix: Tengen RAMBO-1 (thanks scott nash for bugreport, kevtris for specs)
- emu: cpu emulates all stable undoc opcodes, smaller read-modify I/O handlers
- help/emu: dummy VRAM fetch on palette reads (stored in Port 2007h latch)
- emu: emulates corrected MMC1 nametable stuff (required for R.C. Pro-Am PRG1)
- help: added info on MMC1 E000h/Bit4, corrected MMC1 nametable BLK0/BLK1 info
- emulation: fine-adjusted PAL cycles per scanline (106.56 instead 106.53)
- help: corrected PAL clocks (osc/16=1.66MHz=50Hz instead osc/15=1.77MHz=53Hz)
- help: corrected nocash sram circuit exchanged Q0-3 and D0-3 on 74173
