Emu Loader 4.8.1 Released


Howdy MAME fans! I bring you another HUGE update. Dozens for fixes and changes to the core, and a new games filter with various systems to choose. There are even some "old school" filters that are a collection of different systems.
Some files and directory structures have changed so, I recommend you to do a clean install if you do not want to keep old files that will not be used by this build (clean install is NOT necessary but preferable).
I tried to kill all the bugs I could find (both functional and visual), and I took the opportunity to change the appearance of some screens. My goal is to make EL as intuitive and easy to use as possible. If you have an idea on how to improve a feature, let me know.
See changelog for full list of changes.

PSPCAP32: Amstrad CPC Emulator for PSP v1.0.2



ZX-81 posted this news:


Hi All,
Caprice32 is one of the best emulator of the Amstrad CPC home computer series running on Windows and Unix, written by Ulrich Doewich. This emulator faithfully imitates the CPC464, CPC664, and CPC6128 models (see caprice32 project)

I've sucessfully modified, fixed bugs and port the source code of the 4.2.0 version using PSPSDK environment. It's now working fine on PSP !

It has been developped on linux for Firmware 2.5 using the great GTA eloader (0.97) from http://www.fanjita.org/, but it should work properly on other firmwares. I've integrated a 1.5FW binary version (kxploit).

What's new in version 1.0.2 :

- Emulator options menu to change parameter such as sound, clock ...
- Zip archive (.zip) support for both disk files (.dsk) and snapshot files (.sna).
- User Keyboard mapping file to specify dedicated mapping between CPC and PSP keys
(usefull for games that use particular keys and/or don't support joystick).
Enjoy, :)
Zx.

Snes Emulator for Sega Saturn WIP News

Rockin-B posted news about his WIP Snes Emulator for the Sega Saturn at Sega Saturn News:


The snes emulator for SEGA Saturn has been optimized a lot in the last weeks. It now uses a homebrew Saturn library (a replacement for the SGL), which takes less cpu time and less RAM space because both are crucial for the snes emu on SEGA Saturn. The fast assembler cpu core from DreamSNES has been ported to Saturn. It's compatibility is not yet as good as with the C core, but the speedup is very good. A lot of unused code could be removed, improving locality and making more high work RAM available. The memory usage has been optimized too, such that ROMs of up to 3.5 MB size can be loaded. Some compile flags did a good job, too. Rendering is now set to palette mode and the Saturn system clock has been increased by 10 percent.

All in all this results in speed being between 2 and 3 times as fast as before. Homebrew SNES Demos are quite fast and sort of playable, with frameskip. The asm core is compatible with more commercial ROMs than I thought and though these are slower in general, some games (like Desert Strike, Contra 3 and others) show the potential to become playable if the GFX rendering could be speed up.

Dualis Release 20.1 Released


GPU: Fixed some texture transparency problems
GPU: Fixed some bugs when rendering 16-color rotoscale OBJs
GPU: Fixed some bugs when rendering extended palette rotoscale BGs
MMU: Added experimental SPI touchscreen handling
MMU: Fixed some bugs in the handling of long filenames in the FAT
GUI: Improved timer event handling a bit
GUI: Fixed .zip loading
GUI: Added support for .7z loading

The SPI touchscreen handling is not perfect yet and only works somewhat, so the old faked method is still used as a fallback for homebrew ROMs using libnds.

MAME GP32 2.1 Released


* Minor optimizations to 1943, Ghost and Goblins, Black Tiger, Gunsmoke (and clones). Skip over non-drawn characters and sprites.

* Minor optimizations to Xain'd Sleena / Solar Warrior. Also activated hi-score save/load. Use old GFX core for this game.

* Change in control to Defender. Activate "cheat" mode which means you get to use joystick control to reverse and thrust. (If any one doesn't like this, I'll create a new driver).

* Fixed bug in Millipede. X-Axis trackball control was not correct.

* Bug fix to existing sound core. Duplication of some code! Slightly faster.

* New Data East 16-bit games implemented (MAME 0.35b5). New fully working games:
- Baddudes vs Dragonninja US (baddudes), Dragonninja Japan (drgnninja), Slyspy revision 2 (slyspy2) and Slyspy revision 3 (slyspy), Robocop bootleg (robocopp), Heavy Barrel US (hbarrel), Heavy Barrel Japan (hbarrelj), Hippodrome (hippodrm), Fighting Fantasy Japan (ffantasy), Midnight Resistance US (midres), Midnight Resistance Japan (midresj). All are fully playable with all sounds. All these run really well with no sound at FS=1, ie 100% speed and 30FPS. They all run at a playable speed with sound=accurate, FS<=2, 100% speed and 12-15FPS.

Quick note on Heavy Barrel and Midnight Resistance: These games originally featured an analog controller to rotate the players gun. MAME's default method of simulating this control is the mouse. On the GP32, this is hardcoded to use the joystick. Since the joystick is generally used to move the player, I have disabled this analog control for these games and mapped it to buttons 9 and 10 instead. Trivia: These two games are approaching the largest (in terms of memory used) ROMs that will fit in the GP32's 8MB of RAM.

What this means is that you should redefine these controls to (for example) START and SELECT to rotate your weapon.

Some of the keys may change function in the next release: the shoulder buttons may be better suited for this secondary control and move the screen rotation button to something else.

I also patched Heavy Barrel to version MAME 0.36b5 so that sprite and gun positions are correct (i8751 controller).

* New Data East 8-bit games implmented (MAME 0.35b3): - Breywood (breywood), Captain Silver (csilver), Gondomania (gondo), Last Mission (Rev 5) (lastmss2), Last Mission (Rev 6) (lastmiss), Mekyo Sensi (mekyosen), Shackled (shackled), Super Real Darwin (srdarwin). Improvements to existing Data East 8-bit games.

* Improved Gradius driver now also includes: - Lifeforce US (lifefrce), Lifeforce Japan (lifefrcj) and Salamander (salamand). Total ROMs now 753.

* New YM3812 sound core as per GP2X MAME: Snow Bros, Hellfire, Gemini Wing, Bubble Bobble, etc.

* New CPU - Hu6280 core. This is used by the Data East 16-bit games. The GP2X version of MAME should be able to benefit from this too. ie. full sound for the above games and others (inc. Dark Seal). Trivia: This is the CPU used by the PC-Engine, a modified 6502.

* Removed splash screen for additional memory. May add this back in a later release to load dynamically.

GameEx 5.92 Released


• First of all I'd like to give a huge thanks to Headkaze, for all his help on this release and for all his work on the theme editor. We worked together a lot the passed couple of weeks and he contributed massively.
• There's been too many fixes too mention, including minor cosmetic fixes, and attract mode runs smoother. I won't list them all here and I'll just focus on the enhancements and new features.
• GameEx has been optimized a fair bit again, and this version runs significantly faster.
• I've also shaved a bit of the EXE image size.
• The biggest new feature in this release is support for vertical rotated displays. There's a few restrictions on the resolutions you can use with this, but turning on this one setting will also automatically configure MAME for vertical games only, and also automatically configure ArcadeVGA for vertical resolutions when running MAME. There is a screenshot here
• The other big thing is that this release includes HeadKaze's Theme Editor version 1.51 which now allows the image display to be positioned separately from the menus in GameEx, and includes various other fixes and updates. There is still some functionality to implement in GameEx for the editor, but there should not be any outstanding issues, and it is now possible to change the font colour.
• There's a new setting to Show Buttons, allowing complete removal of both the Home and Exit buttons.
• A new setting to not display the title text.
• There's a new GameEx logo. Again thanks Headkaze.
• A new feature for the Attract Mode/Screensaver. There's the ability to play a sound file when exiting attract mode after its been running for over 6 minutes. The idea is to make it fun when the cabs been running a while, and someone walks up to use it.
• Much like how GameEx can dynamically use Zinc to launch MAME games based on PSX hardware it can now do the same and has support for Model 2 hardware and the Model 2 emulator. Most of the work for this is done in the background, and there's only two settings to set to get this up and running. Note after setting it up you'll need to update the list again.

PSPXTI: A TI-92 Calculator emulator v1.0.6

ZX-81 has released a new version of his Texas Instruments Calculator Emulator for the PSP, heres whats new etc:


Hi All,

I've just released the version 1.0.6 of the PSP TI-92 calculator.

What's new in this version ?

- Using LTRIGGER + X key, you can now have the LCD of the TI-92 in full screen, much more convenient to play TI-92 games . - A simple but usefull TI-92 application called "auto close braquets" has been added in the package (found on ticalc.org web site). I remember you that PSPXTI version prior to 1.0.4 are buggy and computation errors may occurs, so please update to earlier releases.

Many TI92 stuff can be found on the following urls :

http://www.ticalc.org, and on the texas instruments web site http://education.ti.com

You need the rom of your TI-92 or TI-92 plus, but it is NOT part of the PSPXTI package because it is the property of Texas Instruments !

This version works with 2.xFW. and 1.5FW. It's distributed under GNU licence and sources are included.

Enjoy,
Zx.

PCSX2 0.9 released

As promised by lead developer Saqib, PCSX2 has been released 0.9 this weekend.

Due some site troubles we had some delay, but now the moment has finally come:



PCSX2 0.9 - Posted by CKemu @ 5:22 03-04-06

Yes folks PCSX2 0.9 is here, by no means gracefully, but it is here!

You can now enjoy PCSX2 0.9 a faster and more compatible PS2 emulator, it's been a year since 0.8.1 was released so you will see many dramatic changes!

Many games are now going ingame, and some are even playable (check out games like Disgaea, or Silent Hill 4!)

On behalf of all the team I would like to say a big HELLO to linuzappz, and a large thankyou for everything he's done for us prior to him leaving the team!

Given the site troubles over the past 24 hours, I can assure you that myself and several devs right now are totally bald from ripping our hair out!


Update: Updated the download to the latest release that should help with some problems. Also be sure to grab the lates P.E.Op.S Sound plugin from here which fixes a problem when running the bios. (Keith)

MAME GP32 2.0 Released


• Compiled with latest DevKitARM R17 - this means it uses gcc 4.02. Should mean the code is generally faster.
• Latest version of DrZ80. Increased compatability for Z80 based games.
• Uses ASM memset and memcpy.
• Improved sound driver. Based on MAME GP2X version. Now attempts to play all sounds regardless of volume and frequency.
• "FPS Display" option added to menu. Displays the number of frames displayed per second (duh). Useful for finding out optimal settings for a game. This is currently not saved in the config file but may do so.
• Screen rotation code for "New Core" needed a re-write - was incompatible with gcc 4.02. Should be as fast as the previous "New Core".
• Added "Screen Fit" mode thanks to Pepe_Faruk. He originally called it "Stretch" mode, but I think it's more of a "Screen Fit" mode. It allows you to scale the screen where games don't fit into the GP32's 320x240 resolution. There are two modes: SKIP and MIX. SKIP basically skips lines to make it fit, MIX alternates the SKIPPED line. This can cause some flicker but looks great if the FPS is high (30+). Think Flubba's GBA PocketNES "flicker" mode. This can be useful for vertical orientated games like 1943 and Galaga if you don't want to rotate the screen. It's also nice for horizontal games such as Sidearms, Gauntlet and Xybots where the horizontal screen res > 320 pixels.
• Improved game drivers for 1943 and Galaga. I can play Galaga at Frameskip 1 (ie. 30 frame refreshes per second) at 150Mhz with sound set to ACCURATE. This equates to full speed.
• Improved game drivers in early Konami games (Time Pilot, Pooyan, Tutankham, Gyruss). Implemented RC sound filters.
• Improved game driver for Juno First. Shooting sound implemented.
• Improved sound drivers for Namco games. Fixes problems with incorrect sounds for Gaplus.
• New game drivers: Prehistoric Isle in 1930, Gaplus and Cabal. Consider these prevew versions - but they generally work okay.
• New game drivers: Data East 16-bit games! After a bit of investigation, it looks like it's possible to get the Data East 16-bit games going on the GP32!

Games include: Bad Dudes vs Dragonninja (US), Dragonninja (Japan), Sly Spy (Revision 2), Hippodrome, Midnight Resistance, Midnight Resistance (Japan) Heavy Barrel, Heavy Barrel (Japan) and Robocop (Bootleg).

BadDudes vs Dragonninja (US), Dragonninja (Japan) and Sly Spy (Revision 2) should be fully playable (minus sound). Robocop (Bootleg) starts but crashes. Heavy Barrel and Midnight Resistance need some further optimizations (next release). The frontend options menu takes up a fair but of space thanks to the splash screen and background screen, so this may need to be re-written to be loaded dynamically.

• Other minor game optimizations as per the GP2X version of MAME. ie. Xybots, Bubble Bobble, etc.
• MAME GP32 DrZ80 renamed to MAME GP32 Fast.
• Compiled and developed using Mac OS X Tiger. Some source code files may be set to UNIX file format. Sorry Windows users!

Monkey64 WIP News (N64 Emu for PSP)

PSMonkey has posted news of an update of his work on the Nintendo 64 emulator for the PSP:


I NOW FINALY (took long enough) have 3d somewhat working on the emulator. Automobile lambergini is now showing 3d elements. This lovely flag is all done in 3d (the two squares behind it are 2d logo & press start text). Yes textures are off and the flag looks funny but that is due to bugs in the 3d (need to add more to the rdp to clear the psp's z-buffer). Once I can clean up more code and fix a few things, I will post some more screenshots. Hopefuly with a good push over the weekend I will have a brand new build up early next week. So lets all enjoy and wait for more screenshots to flow in over the weekend till we all get to play this next week.


Sounds excellent, check out the full info here --> http://nemo.dcemu.co.uk
 

PSPXTI: A TI-92 Calculator emulator v1.0.5

ZX-81 has released a new version of his TI-92 Calculator Emulator for the PSP, heres the details:


Hi All,
I've just released the version 1.0.5 of the PSP TI-92 calculator. Computation errors have been found in previous versions of the emulator, and for example ln(x) function gave false results for x < 1.0. After a long period of bug tracking, errors have been found in 12 instructions of the 68000 processor emulator. Those bugs were present in the original source code of Xtiger and they are all fixed now.
This version works with 2.xFW. and 1.5FW. It's distributed under GNU licence and sources are included.
Enjoy,
Zx.
