Source Changes
- Started adding support for scrolling reel displays, currently text
only, but should be pretty easy to get graphics in there and add
different direction scrolling - updating sc4 code to use these new
types. [David Haywood]

- Stepper display output fix [James Wallace]

- Amatic Multi Game System driver improvements [Roberto Fresca]
* Identified the slots game as Super Stars.
* Changed am_uslot to suprstar.
* Reworked inputs from the scratch.
* Added support for outputs: lamps & counters.
* Added a button-lamps layout.
* Promoted the game to working state.
* Added technical notes.

- Amatic AMA-8000 improvements [Roberto Fresca]
* Renamed amaticmg3 to amaticmg2 since is the AMA-8000-2 system.

'Q'. Now is possible to payout manually, avoiding the hang for
hopper empty or timeout.

value until reset). [Sean Riddle]
