Summary 06586: Various games: Games missing MACHINE_NODEVICE flags
Description Several games are missing MACHINE_NODEVICE flags, as listed below. (Originally this was only about SSF2 Tournament Battle, but this was later extended at Osso's suggestion.)

LAN:
cischeat.cpp: bigrun, cischeat, f1gpstar, f1gpstaro, f1gpstr2
cps2.cpp: ssf2tb, ssf2tbr1, ssf2tbj, ssf2tbj1, ssf2tba, ssf2tbh
f1gp.cpp: f1gp, f1gp2 (has link menu)
groundfx.cpp: groundfx
namcofl.cpp: speedrcr, finalapr, finalapro, finalprj
namcos11.cpp: pocketrc (there's menu for link, IIRC)
namcos22.cpp: ridgera2, raveracw, acedrvr, victlapw, cybrcycc, tokyowar (including clones, probably also alpiner, alpiner2, cybrcomm, adillor?)
neogeo.cpp/neodriv.hxx: lbowling, ridhero, trally
segaxbd.cpp: rascot?

CAMERA and/or PRINTER:
namcos23.cpp: raceon (CAMERA only)
neoprint.cpp: neoprint, npcartv1, 98best44, nprsp

taito_f2.cpp: yesnoj (PRINTER only)

More shall be added as I skim around the cpp files or remember.

I've noticed some other games with network capability forgot this flag as well. Even realpunc doesn't have MACHINE_NODEVICE_CAMERA either...

Maybe you could use this bug report to list all the games that are missing the NODEVICE flags?

May as well bring this back from the dead but only for MACHINE_NODEVICE_LAN and explain some stuff.

harddriv.cpp: steeltal and clones (uses the DSPCOM I/O board for serial comms; emulation isn't fully complete yet; not used in racedriv)
atarig42: roadriot and clones (same DSPCOM board from steeltal is used for comms; not hooked in this driver)
atarigx2: all sets (same situation as atarig42)
atarigt: tmek and clones (either a max232 or ltc485 (direct link for the twin cab); both serial based)
segaxbd/segaybd: smgp/clones and pdriftl (sailorsat demonstrated pdriftl's comms working but didn't commit; smgp has near identical network hardware)
konamigx: racinfrc and clone (self explanatory lan chips; game doesn't work anyway)
midvunit: crusnusa, crusnwld/clones, and offroadc/clones (the clones of crusnusa weren't intended for linking; uses a mix of security pals and bus transceivers; requires pal dumps from all sets but wargods)
gticlub.cpp/zr107.cpp: all zr107 sets, gticlub and thunderh (while thunderh's I/O board, GN680, was later used in terabrst, the former requires the K056230 to communicate with its GN680 while the latter does not)
taitojc.cpp: dangcurv/clone, sidebs/cones and sidebs2/clones (SMC COM20020I)
nwk-tr.cpp: all sets (almost complete?)
cobra.cpp: racingjdx (similar networking hardware but preliminary driver)
hornet.cpp: sscope2 (as above)
gaelco3d: (only works on unix if complied with "SHARED_MEM_DRIVER" active)
midzeus.cpp: crusnexo/clones and grid/clone (irq to enable firewire support?)

Really wish for more updates.
