Summary 00516: All sets in maxaflex.c: The digits don't display correctly.
Description The digits don't display correctly (it was the same problem in 0.108u3) My layout/maxaflex.lay file : 2006.08.15 15:28 ...

Aaron says: The pattern attribute was removed on purpose. Putting it back is the wrong fix. The maxaflex code needs to be changed to output the raw 7-segment data. I've already done that for the next release.

Updated by stephh: I agree that some improvements have been made, but some bugs still remain for "empty" digits. Note that this bug affects the 4 games of the driver: mf_achas, mf_bdash, mf_brist, mf_flip
Steps To Reproduce wait until the timer goes down under 100 and it will display 199

I don't like these 'all sets' reports, it isn't clear (without opening them) exactly which sets it means, I thought this was a mame-wide bug.

in the case of all sets, maybe the driver name should be used instead, or 'all sets in xxxx.c'

True. I'll correct that now.

well, the driver is clearly indicated in the driver column ;)

but I agree that it's better the new solution
