bsnes v078

News via AEP

byuu has released a new version of his SNES emulator bsnes.


Quote:
bsnes v078 released (2011-04-30)

Finally, a new release. I have been very busy finishing up SNES box, cartridge and PCB scanning plus cataloguing the data, however this release still has some significant improvements.

Most notably would be randomization on startup. This will help match the behavior of real hardware and uninitialized memory + registers. It should help catch homebrew software that forgets to initialize things properly. Of course, I was not able to test the complete library, so it is possible that if I´ve randomized anything that should be constant, that this could cause a regression. You can disable this randomization for netplay or to work around any incompatibilities by editing bsnes.cfg and setting snes.random to false.

The GUI also received some updates. Widget sizes are now computed based on font sizes, giving it a perfectly native look (because it is native.) I´ve also added a hotkey remapping screen to the input settings. Not only can you remap inputs to controllers now, but those who did not know the hotkey bindings can now quickly see which ones exist and what they are mapped to.

Please enjoy.

Changelog:

memory and most registers are now randomly initialized on power-up

fixed auto joypad polling issue in Super Star Wars

fixed .nec and .rtc file extensions (they were missing the dot) [krom]

PPU/accuracy now clears overscan region on any frame when it is disabled

PPU/compatibility no longer auto-blends hires pixels (use NTSC filter for this)

added hotkey remapping dialog to input settings window

added a few new hotkeys, including quick-reset

phoenix API now auto-sizes widgets based on font sizes

file dialog once again remembers previously selected file when possible

updated mightymo´s cheat code database to April 19th release

Atari800 v2.2.1

News via AEP

The multiple Atari emulator (800/800XL/130XE/5200) Atari800 has been updated.


Quote:
** 2.2.1 released on 2011-04-28

2011-04-28 Petr Stehlik
* configure.ac: generalization for sound configuration

* ui.c, videomode.c, sdl/input.c: slight optimization for snprintf()

* monitor.c, rdevice.c, screen.[ch], sio.c, ui.c, ui_basic.c, util.c,
videomode.c: replace unsafe sprintf() with snprintf()

* sdl/input.c: fix for over-optimized LPT TRIG, sprintf() removed

* README.1ST, atari800.spec, DOC/README, DOC/NEWS, atari.h, util/export:
updated for a new release


2011-04-27 Petr Stehlik
* DOC/ChangeLog: blank lines added, "src/" from filenames removed

* ide.c: fixes for IDE emulation from Ivo - fix for
8-bit mode with an odd number of reads and adds a command line option
for enabling CF mode (slightly different from normal HD mode)

* configure.ac: fixes non-SDL sound (example: X11 target) for Linux and BeOS
and also adds support for SDL sound on Falcon and other platforms
(like for example *BSD, which should fix the Debian Atari800 package)

* debian/*: updated for a new release, dropping non-SDL binary packages.


2011-04-23 Kostas Nakos
* android/*: Speed up fileselector on orientation update & bugfix mount/insert


2011-04-22 Tomasz Krasuski
* sdl/input.c: Allow using SDL/LPT joysticks together with keyboard
joysticks. Previously if a user had a joystick connected, keyboard
joysticks were ignored.

* sdl/video.c, sdl/video_gl.c: Rework the resolution of the segfault
when switching between softwareOpenGL in Windows - now it always
reinitialises the video subsystem. The previous solution would later cause
glitches when rapidly resizing the OpenGL window.

* sdl/main.c, sdl/input.c: Delay processing of repeated window resize
requests on Windows to avoid a bug in SDL.


2011-04-18 Tomasz Krasuski
* ui_basic.c: Fix division by 0 in the slider control.

* configure.ac: Fix recently-introduced issue with building SDL/Windows -
adding SDL flags to CFLAGS must be done after all AC_CHECK_FUNCS tests but
before the OpenGL check.

* sdl/main.c: Fix Windows/SDL crash when the console window is closed by
user, by servicing console-sourced signals. The crash was due to the audio
subsystem not being closed properly.

* atari.c, sdl/main.c, sdl/video.[ch], sdl/video_gl.c, sdl/video_sw.[ch]:
On Windows use the DirectX backend only in fullscreen (supports VSync) and
Windib otherwise (DirectX backend is glitchy in windowed modes).

* ui.c: Use the slider control in the "Scanlines visibility" menu option;
improve several option names.

* cfg.c, screen.[ch]: Store the "Show speed", "Show disk activity" and
"Show sector counter" settings in config file.


2011-04-13 Tomasz Krasuski
* atari.c: Fix bug introduced at 04-09 with atari.c not compiling when
HAVE_SIGNAL is not defined.

* DOS/INSTALL, configure.ac, aclocal.m4: Detect presence of SDL
using the standard m4 script provided by SDL. New configure options are
available: --disable-sdltest, --with-sdl-prefix and --with-sdl-exec-prefix.

* sdl/video.c, sdl/video_gl.c: Fix misuse of SDL - setting pointers
to OpenGL functions must be performed after each call to SDL_SetVideoMode.
Fix a bug with screen_texture not always being freed when needed.
Make OpenGL log messages slimmer and let them appear only when initialising
OpenGL.


2011-04-09 Tomasz Krasuski
* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, ui.c, atari_ntsc/atari_ntsc.[ch],
sdl/palette.[ch], sdl/video.[ch], sdl/video_gl.[ch],
sdl/video_sw.[ch]: Add option for setting pixel (texture) format
in OpenGL mode - depending on graphics hardware, different formats give
the best performance. the BPP parameter is now only for software modes.
Also fix a bug with bit depth autodetection not working (in Windows BPP
autotetection works only before the first call to SDL_SetVideoMode), and use
the SDL 8-bit palettised video mode properly.

* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, ui.c, sdl/video.[ch],
sdl/video_gl.[ch], sdl/video_sw.c: Add option for enabling
synchronization with vertical retrace - for SDL fullscreen non-OpenGL modes.

* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, ui.c, sdl/video_gl.[ch]:
Add option for disabling OpenGL Pixel Buffer Objects - on some hardware they
decrease performance.

* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, ui.c, videomode.[ch]:
Add option for automatic detection of host screen aspect ratio.

* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, ui.c, videomode.[ch], sdl/video.c:
Rename several options to more intuitive names - in command line and in GUI:
-horiz-offset -> -horiz-shift, -vert-offset -> -vert-shift,
-stretch integer -> -stretch integral,
-keep-aspect 1to1 -> image-aspect square-pixels,
-[no]-opengl -> -[no]-video-accel

* ui.c: Reorder the Video Mode Settings menu, for better usability.
Use the slider control for video area/shift options.

* sdl/video_gl.c, sdl/video_sw.c: Call SDL_SetVideoMode() and display
ModeInfo only when necessary.

* DOC/USAGE, atari800.man, videomode.c, sdl/video.c: Other fixes
in help/documentation.

* sdl/main.c, sdl/video.[ch], sdl/video_gl.[ch], sdl/video_sw.c:
Try to reinitialise the SDL video subsystem after an error before failing.
This allows to recover from some hardware/driver-related errors.

* platform.h, videomode.c, sdl/input.c, sdl.video.c, sdl/video_sw.c:
Fix broken handling of SDL_VIDEORESIZE event: the call to SDL_SetVideoMode
must set the same window size as returned by the event. Also when window
is maximised, it is not allowed to un-maximise it by software. When these
conditions are not met, glitches occur.

* videomode.c: Fix broken aspect ratio correction in windowed rotated
modes. Make the windowed mode the default - it´s more compatible.

* sdl/video_gl.c: Fix glitches when switching softwareOpenGL on
Windows. Avoid unnecessary scanline-drawing when scanline-percentage is 0.

* sdl/input.c: Work around unwanted keyboard events when pressing
Alt+Tab on Windows.

* atari.c, ui.c, sdl/input.c: Fix abuse of signals.
Atari800_Exit() calls signal-unsafe functions, so it cannot be called from
within a signal handler.

* sdl/main.c: Close the SDL window when the monitor is used, to avoid
unnecessary keyboard events.

* monitor.c: Fix improper handling of the prompt when readline is used.


2011-04-04 James Wilkinson
* configure.ac, Makefile.in: maintain support for older compilers (DOS, BeOS)


2011-04-03 Kostas Nakos
* android/*: Implement new screen cropping preferences,
some small port fixes,
implement new arrow key derotation workaround for ext. keyboards

DSx86 version 0.31 released!

Pate has released a new version of his Dos Emulator for the Nintendo DS:

This is mostly a small bug fix version, as the 0.30 version had a couple of annoying bugs caused by the new HIMEM.SYS emulation. I also added the Smooth scaling option to some new graphics modes. The main changes in this version are the following:

Implemented Page Fault handling to protected mode RETF opcode. This allows the start up of Windows Setup from within Windows 3.00a, and fixes some other Windows programs as well.
Implemented a couple of new XMS INT calls, to allow Commander Keen 4 to run again. The same problem occurred in some other games as well.
Implemented Mode-X Smooth scaling for 320x200 and 320x240 resolutions. This is not very well tested, and the other Mode-X resolutions (320x400, 32x480, 360x240 etc) will not work yet.
Implemented preliminary Smooth scaling for EGA 320x200 mode. Note that the smooth vertical panning is not supported in the Smooth scaling mode yet, so you will get jerky horizontal motion in games that use that.

Thanks for the bug reports for 0.30 that brought the first two problems to my attention! I hope this version will run the Windows programs better, and does not cause so many problems in the games that used to run in the previous versions.

Supermodel v0.1.1a

News via AEP

Supermodel is a new emulator for the Sega Model 3 Hardware in a very early stage of development.


Quote:
--------------------
Revision History
--------------------

Version 0.1.1a
- Minor source code update.
- Set Render3D to NULL in the CReal3D constructor. Fixes crashes that
occur on some builds. [Nik Henson]
- Cleaned up the UNIX Makefile and added an OS X Makefile. [R. Belmont]
- Small changes to ppc_ops.cpp for C++0x compliance. [R. Belmont]
- Included glew.h into the source tree. [R. Belmont]
- Changed WIN32 definition to SUPERMODEL_WIN32.



What´s New?
April 3, 2011

Thanks to Nik Henson, a 64-bit Windows build is now available from the Download page! I haven´t tried it myself (I don´t have 64-bit Windows) but Nik says it is a little bit faster at points where the 32-bit build normally slows down. I´ve also made a very minor source update, adding GLEW headers that were missing. The annoying GLEW-related warnings on Microsoft Visual C++ are now suppressed.
April 2, 2011

Thanks, everyone, for all the positive feedback! It´s nice to hear that people are enjoying themselves.

I´ve posted a small source code update. R. Belmont fixed the UNIX Makefile and added a Mac OS X Makefile. He also made some other minor changes to the source code. Thanks to Nik Henson, a bug that was causing crashes on some 64-bit builds has been squashed. The Render3D object pointer was not being initialized properly in the CReal3D class. None of these changes seem to affect the 32-bit Windows executable, so it has not been updated.



Some users have reported shader linkage errors and severely crippled 3D graphics (particularly on older ATI GPUs). There is a solution for this that ought to work in most cases.


April 1, 2011

Supermodel is here! Although very prelimary and far from where I ultimately want it to be, I feel that I´ve teased everyone for long enough. Version 0.1a can be grabbed from the Download page. Make sure to read through the Help section for installation and basic usage information. So what´s new in Supermodel that hasn´t made it to MAME yet? The graphics should look substantially better. Lighting and shading are generally more accurate, although still imperfect. Fog has been implemented and so has the spotlight effect. The 2D graphics emulation still has some issues, namely with regards to priorities, but is otherwise much more accurate. Layer masking and scrolling are mostly working. Several games are playable -- check out the About page for a compatibility list.

So where to from now? Besides boosting compatibility, the really big things left to do are sound, a dynamic recompiler for the PowerPC, and a proper user interface. I´m not yet sure how I´m going to prioritize these things, but I´m leaning toward tackling sound first. I anticipate having much less time to devote to Supermodel in the coming months but whatever progress is made will be reported here first. So keep your eyes on this spot. In the meantime...

Gentlemen, start your engines!

Atari800 v2.2.0

News via AEP

The multiple Atari emulator (800/800XL/130XE/5200) Atari800 has been updated. Only the Linux sourcecode and binary has been released so far.


Quote:
Version 2.2.0 (2011/04/02)

Another update after two long years. A lot of changes and major improvements:

New features:
-------------
* SDL features synchronized sound (GTIA+POKEY digisounds play properly now)
* SDL display enhancements (hardware accelerated using OpenGL)
* DirectX display enhancements (also hardware accelerated)
* Improved NTSC and PAL colours (presets: Standard/Deep Black/Vibrant)
* Austin Franklin 80 Column card
* Emulate the Alien Group Voice Box I and II
* Added support for F12 turbo mode.
* IDE emulation (compatible with MyIDE)
* New Android port by Kostas Nakos (available in the App Market already)
* Auto frame skip for slower devices (currently enabled for Android only)

Fixes:
------
* trak-ball (cx22) emulation fixed
* SDL: leftmost column missing in 16/32bpp fixed
* DirectX default for Win32 SDL

SDL Display enhancements:
-------------------------
1. Fullscreen resolution - this gives a list of all available resolutions from
which a user chooses one. The default resolution is the next-bigger-than
336x240.

2. Fullscreen: yes/no - obvious. Window size is independent from the chosen
fullscreen resolution and can be changed by resizing the window.

3. Rotate sideways: yes/no - rotates the screen by 90 deg. Works as earlier,
ie. only for "standard" display (no NTSC filter, no 80 column card).

4. Stretch - this option controls how display stretching (scaling) is
performed. We can select one of:
a) none - no stretching at all
b) integer multiples (default) - width and height will be resized by 1x, 2x,
3x etc.
c) full - stretching is unrestricted, display will cover the entire screen.

5. Keep aspect ratio - this option controls how the display´s aspect ratio is
corrected. 3 options available:
a) disabled - no aspect ratio correction, display will fill entire
screen/window,
b) 1:1 (default) - width and height will be multipled by the same value
c) like real TV - display will be resized to reflect pixel aspect ratio of a
real Atari connected to a TV. Atari pixels are not square; pixel width-to-
height ratio is about 0.857 for NTSC and 1.039 for PAL. This option reflects
that.

6. Host display aspect ratio - here the user enters aspect ratio of his
monitor. This value is used to properly compute display aspect ratio when
"Keep aspect ratio" is set to "like real TV". Set it to 4:3 (default), 16:9,
1.78:1 etc.

7. Horizontal view area - this option sets the size of Atari screen area
visible horizontally. Choose one of:
a) narrow - 320 columns wide,
b) normal (default) - 336 columns wide,
c) full - 384 columns
d) custom - lets the user enter any value between 160 and 384.

8. Vertical view area - similar to above:
a) short - 200 lines high
b) normal (default) - this setting is TV-system-dependent. In PAL this makes
all 240 lines visible, while in NTSC top and bottom 8 lines are hidden, which
leaves 224 lines visible. I´ve made this as such because apparently on NTSC
TVs not all 240 lines are visible. The value of 224 was taken by taking full
NTSC height (480, divided by 2) and cutting top and bottom 3.5% (different
sources say 3.5% is the "action-safe" overscan area).
c) full - 240 lines high
d) custom - any value between 100 and 240.

9. Horizontal offset - when amount of columns displayed is less than 384, this
option "shifts" the visible screen area. Setting to higher than 0 shows more
of the right side, and lower than 0 shows more of the left side.

10. Vertical offset - similar to above.

Additionally, the Alt+Shift+X shortcut that switches beetween standard80
column display is now also available as "Display settings->80 column display
if available: yes/no".

The Alt+B switch however has been removed - since setting black/white colours
can be done in Display settings anyway.

All new options are also available from command line and are saveable in
configuration.

New Android port features:
-------------------------
- Efficient performance
- Uses Opengl ES to handle scaling of the graphics
- Runs on Android 1.6+
- Novel on screen touch joystick control for less hand cramps & intuitive
control
- Supports multi touch input
- Supports hardware keyboard with key remapping for joystick input
- Supports the Wii Controller for joystick input
- Supports the "move to SD" feature
- Sound emulation very good but not perfect yet
- Bypasses the emulator UI menu completely - goes ´the android way´ about it
- Available in the App Market: market://details?id=name.nick.jubanka.atari800

Source Changes

Converted Super Shanghai Dragon´s Eye to use the common deco video files functions, fixing a rowscroll bug in it [David Haywood]

Fix font loading in sdlmame. BDF files are just loaded as TTF by TTF_OpenFont. Load is now protected by a magic check. Also fixed a bug in SDL1.3 keyboard mapping and changed SDL1.3 code to be compatible with recent 1.3 API changes. [Couriersud]

sdl-config flags are now separated into INCFLAGS and COMFLAGS in sdl.mak. This fixes "make depend". [Couriersud]

softlist.c: split the field (added some time ago to handle compatibility requirements) into and . the former stays tied to the whole software entry, the latter gets inherited by each part. [Fabio Priuli]

Added device_t::memory() to fetch a reference to the memory interface, or assert if not present. [Aaron Giles]

Split address_space::install_[legacy_]handler into install_[legacy_]read_handler, install_[legacy_]write_handler, and install_[legacy_]readwrite_handler. [Aaron Giles]

Added variants of address_space handler installers which don´t take mirror or mask parameters, since this is by far the most common case. [Aaron Giles]

Deprecated API cleanup. [Aaron Giles]

cpu_suspend ==> device_suspend
cpu_resume ==> device_resume
cpu_yield ==> device_yield
cpu_spin ==> device_spin
cpu_spinuntil_trigger ==> device_spin_until_trigger
cpu_spinuntil_time ==> device_spin_until_time
cpu_spinuntil_int ==> device_spin_until_interrupt
cpu_eat_cycles ==> device_eat_cycles
cpu_adjust_icount ==> device_adjust_icount
cpu_triggerint ==> device_triggerint
cpu_set_input_line ==> device_set_input_line
cpu_set_input_line_vector ==> device_set_input_line_vector
cpu_set_input_line_and_vector ==> device_set_input_line_and_vector
cpu_set_irq_callback ==> device_set_irq_callback

device_memory(device) ==> device->memory()
device_get_space(device, spacenum) ==> device->memory().space(spacenum)
cpu_get_address_space(cpu, spacenum) ==> cpu->memory().space(spacenum)
cputag_get_address_space(mach, tag, spacenum) ==> mach->device("tag")->memory().space(spacenum)
cputag_get_clock(mach, tag) ==> mach->device("tag")->unscaled_clock()
cputag_set_clock(mach, tag, hz) ==> mach->device("tag")->set_unscaled_clock(hz)

Created new enum type address_spacenum for specifying an address space by index. Update functions and methods that accepted an address space index to take an address_spacenum instead. Note that this means you can´t use a raw integer in ADDRESS_SPACE macros, so instead of 0 use the enumerated AS_0. [Aaron Giles]

Standardized the project on the shortened constants AS_* over the older ADDRESS_SPACE_*. Removed the latter to prevent confusion. Also centralized the location of these definitions to memory.h. [Aaron Giles]

Converted DECO BAC06 tilemap (used by dec0.c) to be a device, reducing code duplication [David Haywood]

Deprecate the old memory_install_* macros. Dynamic installation is now handled directly by calling methods on the address_space, which have been expanded with aliases to cover all previous situations. In addition, variants with no mirror or mask value are provided to cover the common cases: [Aaron Giles]

memory_install_read*_handler(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, handler)
==> space->install_legacy_read_handler(begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(handler))

memory_install_write*_handler(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, handler)
==> space->install_legacy_write_handler(begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(handler))

memory_install_readwrite*_handler(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, rhandler, whandler)
==> space->install_legacy_readwrite_handler(begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(rhandler), FUNC(whandler))

memory_install_read*_device_handler(space, device, begin, end, mirror, mask, handler)
==> space->install_legacy_read_handler(*device, begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(handler))

memory_install_write*_device_handler(space, device, begin, end, mirror, mask, handler)
==> space->install_legacy_write_handler(*device, begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(handler))

memory_install_readwrite*_device_handler(space, device, begin, end, mirror, mask, rhandler, whandler)
==> space->install_legacy_readwrite_handler(*device, begin, end [, mirror, mask], FUNC(rhandler), FUNC(whandler))

memory_install_read_port(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, port)
==> space->install_read_port(begin, end [, mirror, mask], port)

memory_install_read_bank(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, bank)
==> space->install_read_bank(begin, end [, mirror, mask], bank)

memory_install_rom(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, ptr)
==> space->install_rom(begin, end [, mirror, mask], ptr)

memory_install_ram(space, begin, end, mirror, mask, ptr)
==> space->install_ram(begin, end [, mirror, mask], ptr)

memory_unmap_read(space, begin, end, mirror, mask)
==> space->unmap_read(begin, end [, mirror, mask])

memory_nop_read(space, begin, end, mirror, mask)
==> space->nop_read(begin, end [, mirror, mask])

uiimage.c: Improved File Manager usage (in the internal UI) by catching char inputs and searching for matching names among files and directories [Fabio Priuli]

some work on the 3 games in dec8.c which use the bac06 tilemaps[David Haywood]

Converted Act Fancer, Trio the Punch and Mad Motor to use the common deco video functions [David Haywood]

Converted Stadium Hero driver to use the common Deco video functions [David Haywood]

Cleanup of machine.h. Shuffled some fields around, and moved several to private member variables with accessors: [Aaron Giles]

machine->m_respool ==> machine->respool()
machine->config ==> machine->config()
machine->gamedrv ==> machine->system()
machine->m_regionlist ==> machine->first_region()
machine->sample_rate ==> machine->sample_rate()

Converted Pocket Gal to use the common deco video routines [David Haywood]

Started moving common deco MXC06 sprite controller code to it´s own device files, reducing code duplication [David Haywood]

Converted Act Fancer to use common deco sprite code [David Haywood]

Converted Vapor Trail to use the common deco sprite functions [David Haywood]

Converted Stadium Hero, Cobra-Command, Psycho-Nics Oscar to use the common deco sprite functions [David Haywood]

Removed redundant machine items from address_space and device_t. Neither machine nor m_machine are directly accessible anymore. Instead a new getter machine() is available which returns a machine reference: [Aaron Giles]

space->machine->xxx ==> space->machine().xxx
device->machine->yyy ==> device->machine().yyy

Globally changed all running_machine pointers to running_machine references. Any function/method that takes a running_machine takes it as a required parameter (1 or 2 exceptions). Being consistent here gets rid of a lot of odd &machine or *machine, but it does mean a very large bulk change across the project. [Aaron Giles]

Remove redundant item cpu from address_space, in favor of space->device(). [Aaron Giles]

Two hash_collections can only match if they have at least one matching hash. [Aaron Giles]

If we get an error parsing options, see if there was no command and what looks like an invalid system name. In that case, provide suggestions for the system name instead of reporting the options error. [Aaron Giles]

Move overridable device->rom_region(), device->machine_config_additions(), and device->input_ports() to protected methods. Added non-virtual wrappers around them. [Aaron Giles]

Implemented karnov style sprites in its own file, shared with karnov and dec8 drivers [David Haywood]

Fixed multiwidth sprites in decmxc06.c, removed code which appeared to serve no purpose other than to break the birdtry gfxdecode in machine/dec0.c [David Haywood]

Added new macro MACHINE_CONFIG_DERIVED_CLASS() which works just like MACHINE_CONFIG_DERIVED() except you can specify an alternate driver_device class. Used this in the 8080bw.c games which require an _8080bw_state, but derive from mw8080bw_root which has the base class mw8080bw_state. [Aaron Giles]

lordgun.c: Corrected Dipswitch names and added dipswitch locations to Lord of Gun & Alien Challenge [Brian Troha]

tumbleb.c: Corrected Dipswitch names and locations for Choky! Choky! [Brian Troha]


New clones added

Fashion Gambler (Set 2) [Team Europe]
AAcrobatic Dog-Fight (USA) [Tirino73]


New games marked as GAME_NOT_WORKING

Jyunai - Manatsu no First Kiss [The Dumping Union, alien_mame]
BiKiNikko - Okinawa de Ippai Shityaimashita [The Dumping Union, alien_mame]

DSx86 version 0.30 released!

News via http://dsx86.patrickaalto.com/DSblog.html

This is not version 0.26, but version 0.30! I decided to jump the version number, as this version has such a major change. This version emulates a 80286 processor, instead of the 80186 processor that all previous versions have emulated. The list of changes in this version is as follows:

80286 protected mode support! This means that Windows 3.00a can run in Standard Mode, having over 800KB of RAM (in DS Lite mode) or over 8MB of RAM (in DSi mode) available. DSx86 is one of the GBATemp Homebrew Bounty entries in the DSi category, and this version is the "significant update" that in my opinion fulfills the competition requirements.
Improved the MCGA Smooth scaling mode efficiency, based on the ideas described in the Quick Colour Averaging article by Thiadmer Riemersma.
Implemented preliminary Smooth scaling option for 640x200 EGA mode. This mode is used by the Silpheed game, for example.

Here below are some screen copies from the latest version, showing the Windows 3.00a About dialog in DS Lite and DSi mode, and two screen copies showing the result of the EGA 640x200 mode Smooth scaling.

Please test this new DSx86 version, as I might have broken some games with the extensive internal changes I had to do for protected mode support. Also feel free to test various 16-bit Windows games, many of those should now run (as long as they don't try to use some 386 processor features).

Next, I think I will get back to working on DS2x86. I would like to get started on the proper audio support for DS2x86 in the near future, so I'll probably look into that, along with trying to fix some bugs and test some misbehaving games. Thanks again for your continued interest in DSx86 and DS2x86!

 

Saturnin News

News via http://runik.free.fr/comments/display.php?id=30

Last months, I've been working on Saturnin with one goal : going open source (yay)
So, after spending countless time on it, everything's done, and I finally moved my sourcecode to BitBucket (I'll get back to that point another time).

But there's still one thing to take care of (well amongst others :p), before opening the depot to the public : I need to choose a licence.
Of course, there are constraints :
- the future version will use plug-ins, and I don't want to force anyone contributing one to provide its sourcecode
- some of the actual code used in Saturnin wasn't done by myself (the SCSP core is Stef's for instance, the 68K code is from either Turbo68K or Musashi) ... I will put it into separate dlls also, but that must be taken into account
-some other things that I don't remind now :p

After looking into existing licenses, I think GPL is too restrictive to my point of view, but LGPL could be a good candidate.

As I'm pretty new to that kind of stuff, I'm seeking advice ... so If you have anything relevant to say about that, please leave me a comment.

Thanks !

1964mod v1.4.3

The great N64 emulator fork 1964mod, which is based on the last released 1964 1.1 source, has been updated!


Core Changes & Fixes
During language switching, several bugs surface :
 "ROM Name" column can shrink to very small width (fixed)
 "Exit" menu option may disappear (fixed)
 "Recent ROMs" & "Recent ROM Folders" menu option text may not be translated or duplicated menu options or not deleted when it is unchecked or a combination of the above (fixed)
 "Help" menu & its submenu text are not translated (fixed)
 To complement the bugfixing and translation effort of the Language feature, several enhancements are considered.
 Add support for lgm extension for language files and drop support for 1964 lng extension as per MasterPhW request (enhanced)
 Revamp the "About 1964mod" box layout to cater to the lengthy translation text and updated english.lgm with updated infos and comments for translation purpose (enhanced)
 Language files translation is currently in progress and the following are completed:
- Deutsch by MasterPhW
- French by Siskoo
- Spanish by OverLordChaos
The existing 1964 Boxart feature has several bugs and need some enhancements as well.
 MasterPhW reported a bug for same BoxArt image duplication over different roms in the romlist display window (fixed)
 In Boxart display, press "Ctrl+S" or right click on a rom icon display will change its icon image to be the same as the 1st rom icon image (fixed)
 In Boxart display, open "ROM Properties" causes Boxart column info to be cleared except for the game name and it will be restored after a refresh or emu restart (fixed)
 Speedup Boxart display and reduce screen flickers by combining multiple refresh command requests (enhanced)
Minor speedup to romlist window display by removing duplicate refresh codes with reload especially Boxart display (enhanced)
 Replaced existing N64logo and 1964 icon with MasterPhW customized ones (enhanced)
 Some closely named roms can pickup the same boxart image (fixed)
 Remove token codes which is no longer useful and buggy.
Fix compiled error for LogPIFData and remove C:/ hardcoding (fixed)

Plugin Changes & Fixes
 Remove the MyGlideHQ subdirectory from game dump folder when dumping game textures (enhanced)
 Fix color banding in MyGlideHQ when starting game in hi-res ("Rice" format) with texture compression (regression fixed)
 Fix game direct launch to fullscreen bug when emulator starts with MyGlide64 to pickup correct fullscreen resolution (fixed)
 Enhance the "filtering of duplicate Fullscreen Resolution entries" fix to pickup correct resolution by the MyGlitch64 wrapper (enhanced/fixed)
 Free up memory after game loading hi-res textures is closed for MyGlide64 plugin (fixed)
 Fix 1964Audio not remembering "ReverseStereo" last checked status when emu starts (fixed)
 Revert "Sync Game to Audio" as default "ON" because the bug for not remembering last checked status is fixed
 Incorporate official Glide64 fixes r218, r220, r224, r225, r230 & r231 into MyGlide64 and replace my working fix with the official Glide64 fix r219 & r228
