MAME v0.173 released!

MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

What's news in MAME v0.172:

-Initial Catalan translation [jmallach]

-naomi.c: add Derby Owners II protection key [MetalliC]

-Reduce the incidence of required_device in subdevices [AJR]

-UML: Added FCOPYI and ICOPYF instructions to pass raw data between
integer and floating-point registers. [Ville Linde]

-mips3: Fix behavior for 32/64 bit mode floating point register
aliasing.[Happy]

-Magic10 driver: Added technical notes, game status, defined clocks,
fixed inaccurate notes, and some driver cleanups. [Roberto Fresca]

-screen: svg rendering from inside the rom. [O. Galibert]

-Updated Portuguese (Brazil) [Ashura-X]

-luaengine: add plugin options menu [Carl]

-Major Havoc: Updated Gamma CPU address decoding/mirroring from the
schematic [Lord Nightmare]

-FB01: fix ROM label to match actual chip [anonymous]

-Magic Crystals: Improve ROM labeling for Japan set based on PCB
picture, and noted that the Japan set we have is revision 2, but a
revision 0 exists, undumped [Lord Nightmare]

-TMS5220: add a 'combined rs/ws write' function for systems which
require both pins to change at exactly the same time and not to reset
the chip. [Lord Nightmare]

-Revert software-installed slot/image options when changing software [AJR]
Remove emu.h's stealth include of emuopts.h through mconfig.h;
reduce dependency on emuopts.h in other headers and source files.
MCFG_CPU_FORCE_NO_DRC is now a CPU configuration parameter rather than
a global one; it still works to override the -drc option setting.

-fix some missing gfx in bbusters / mechatt [dink]

-Make overscan on integer scaled targets optional (add option -intoverscan). [Calamity]

-luaengine: direct and region accessors [Carl]

-This one documents what I think is a real bug of the Japanese game
Sports Pad Soccer: part of the player 2 input is read from player 1
input instead. Also, reorganized code of the Japanese Sports
Pad controller device and replace some PORT_CUSTOM/PORT_CHANGED
callbacks with PORT_READ_LINE/PORT_WRITE_LINE. [Enik]

-Add experimental cheat lua plugin [Carl]

-Improvements to tape driver of hp9845b [F. Ulivi]

-info.cpp: Improved documentation of input devices in the -listxml
output, since having just a generic 'number of buttons' is rather
pointless in the context of home systems with configurable controllers
(being them keyboards, keypads or joypads). Now the various
controllers are listed separately with the number of buttons they
have. Frontend authors who relied on the "buttons" attribute of the
input node for any kind of filter shall now scan all available
controllers and take the maximum among their "buttons" attribute
(possibly discarding keyboards and keypads if they want) to recover
the old value. [Fabio Priuli]

-info.cpp: Started to acknowledge PORT_16WAY inputs in -lx, since they
were reported as 8-ways so far. [Fabio Priuli]

-Devfind revision phase 1, cleaning out some legacy stuff [AJR]
* Eliminate the cached device_t::m_region pointer and its region()
getter method. Devices that need to bind to a region with the same
tag should use optional/required_memory_region or
optional/required_region_ptr with DEVICE_SELF as the subtag; this
improves error checking. (DEVICE_SELF has been moved to device.h
for greater visibility in the source.)
* Allow required/optional_region_ptr to specify a specific length
which must match that of the region found.
* Implement finder_base::finder_tag() getter for diagnostic purposes.
* Perform some (not very efficient) validity checks on memory region
finders instead of allowing them to automatically pass.
* Privatize device_memory_interface::m_addrspace.

-Magic 10 driver: Added technical notes and a missing PLD dump. [f205v]

-Added m62(kidniki) to nl.lua. Started some experiments around parallel
solving of linear equations. This code is not active. Fix kidniki
audio performance. [Couriersud]

-plugins/timer: add sample plugin for game time [Carl]

-info.cpp: first attempt to fix the longstanding issue about inputs
owned by devices being always tagged as P1 inputs in -lx.
[Fabio Priuli]

-plugins/cheatfind: start lua cheat finder library [Carl]

-apple2: Additional work on the PC Transporter [Peter Ferrie, R. Belmont]

-Basic TCP server based on libuv [Inaki Baz Castillo,Miodrag Milanovic]

-intv: Converted controller inputs to be slot devices. [Fabio Priuli]

-intvecs: Converted hand controllers, keyboard and synth to be slot
devices, by using a temporary hack to workaround the impossibility to
plug the same device into 2 different slots as these keyboard require.
[Fabio Priuli]

-Skeleton implementation for Universal windows main app classes. [Brad Hughes]

-String Translate for Chinese (Traditional / Simplified) [YuiFAN]

-diimage.cpp: Allow image devices to be configured with a fixed (not
user selectable) piece of software and updated a few options and menu
to acknowledge such possibility. [Fabio Priuli]

-macs.cpp: Converted to use generic cartslot with fixed software
configuration. Cleaned up loading and banking systems in the driver as
a result. [Fabio Priuli]

-Added extra bit as delay between bytes to make 1 stop bit work [Joakim Larsson]

-apple2: Further PC Transporter work. V30 now boots. [Peter Ferrie, R. Belmont]

-mips3: Fixed DMULT and DMULTU in both interpreter and DRC modes. [marathonman]

-ng_aes.cpp: converted AES controllers to work through slot devices.
Also, separated more clearly the CD component by the base unit.
[Fabio Priuli]

-am9517: add clone with the non-standard mask behavior of the PC
Transporter ASIC [Carl, R. Belmont]

-apple2: updated PC Transporter to use alternate DMAC emulation & fixed
V30 clock. [Peter Ferrie, R. Belmont]

-apple2: PC Transporter: halt V30 properly on startup, XT has 8-bit
ISA, improved 6502 CGA framebuffer writes. [R. Belmont]

-screen: Fix alpha handling, cdkong looks good now [O. Galibert]

-bgfx: Add data-driven render target clearing [Ryan Holtz]

-Significant speed improvement:
* added a new solver using compressed row format
* fixed sorting
As a result, netlist performance on kidniki nearly doubled. The
performance increase is mainly due to the fact that sorting decreases
the number of operations for gaussian elimination of the kidniki
matrix from ~7800 to 707. In addition, compressed row format improves
L1 usage. [Couriersud]

-Eliminate device_t::static_config, a type-unsafe legacy feature. [AJR]

*Rewrite or remove every last instance of MCFG_DEVICE_CONFIG and its
two aliases, including within comments and dead code.

*Make the Z80/Z180 daisy chain an interface that interfaces with the
existing interface. Z8000 has been hooked up to this as well (p8000_16
already configures it), but currently does nothing with it.

-mips3: Fixed interpreter bug where BADCOP exceptions would execute the
faulting opcode twice. [Ryan Holtz]

-Update strings.po [aviloria]

-Update German GUI translation [rootfather]

-Added ImGui based debugger. [Barry Rodewald]

-apple2e: fix C800 internal ROM reading [R. Belmont]

-New PlayChoice-10 BIOS (Single Screen, Freeplay fix, Newer?) [Firehawke]

-apple2: fixed inverse text drawing. [R. Belmont]

-Added HQ2x, HQ3x and HQ4x shaders. [MooglyGuy,Jules Blok,Cameron Zemek,Maxim Stepin]

-soft is hard and hard is soft. Two is one and one is two. No wonder
"-video accel" has substandard performance if opengl is disabled.
[Couriersud]

-These init calls all returned false. No need for a return value in
this case. [Couriersud]

-Iterate over devices C++11 style [AJR]

Replace the old device_iterator and its specialized versions with
functionally equivalent classes that use standard operators to yield
references to devices/interfaces rather than pointers. With
range-based for loops, they no longer have to be stored in named
variables, though they can also be reused concurrently since the
iteration state is now maintained by a subclass.
Add a few more typical getters to device_t::subdevice_list.

-bgfx: Added SuperEagle shader. [Ryan Holtz]

-Refactored distortion pass [ImJezze]
* separated curvature parameter into distortion, cubic_distortion and
distort_corner
* distortion and cubic_distortion can be negative, to compensate each
other
* distort_corner is intependent from the image distortion

-neogeo: reworked inputs to work through the slot device interface. you
can now configure the 15-pin ports available in the multicart driver
(neogeo) with the -crtl1 and -ctrl2 options. Thus, if you want to launch
janshin in neogeo with the mahjong control panel you shall now prescribe
-edge "" -ctrl1 mahjong
and set accordingly the dipswitch (the first option disables inputs
from the edge connector). When you run single game drivers (e.g. mslug,
or kof94, etc.), instead, a unique controller is available and cannot
be modified. In particular, the janshin driver already comes
pre-configured in the proper way. [Fabio Priuli]

-Refactor OSD window. [Brad Hughes]
Unified renderer in osd_window as std::unique_ptr
Made windows all std::shared_ptr Made window lists
std::list> Updated OSD SDL worker_param
to not use malloc (not compatible with smart pointers) Made renderer
pointer to window a weak reference. May not be available during
destruction of the window.

-Alta Tensione: Added technical notes, game status, and patched the
boot protection. [Roberto Fresca]

-Split UI and frontend part from core [Miodrag Milanovic]

-Implemented dynamic loading of precompiled solver code. [Couriersud]

-saturn.cpp: converted controllers to work through slot devices,
cleaning up the related code. [Fabio Priuli]

-saturn.cpp: Added support for SegaTap adapter (4 controllers) and
Sega Multitap adapter (6 controllers). Saturn Bomberman can now be
played as intended. [Fabio Priuli]

-softlist.cpp: add support for "rom_ignore". [Fabio Priuli]

-itgambl2.cpp driver: Added technical notes and some clean-ups
[Roberto Fresca]

-apple2: fixed Apple II J-Plus text drawing, and updated notes
[R. Belmont]

-r9751: add more floppy debugging and fix DMA masking
[Brandon Munger]

-ioport.cpp: extended core input to support up to 10 players.
[Fabio Priuli]

-dumped Dreamcast bios MPR-21933, confirmed match MPR-21931 [CoolMod]

-sf.c: does not have COIN3, and protection MCU on sfj is an i8751 [Yu]

-cgenie.cpp: expanded .cas support so that also files created by
Genieous emulator can be loaded. [Fabio Priuli]

-Added "selection" parameter to chain input sampler [ImJezze]
* if specified all textures (.png) within the same directoy of the
given texture will be selectable via slider in the UI
* also added slider for "shadow mask tile mode" to HLSL chain

-bgfx: Ported xBR shaders from libretro. [Ryan Holtz, Hyllian]

-Archive handling improvements [Vas Crabb]
* Improve error handling in 7zip file I/O code
* Fix reading 7zip files >=4GB on LP32/LLP64 targets
* Update to LZMA SDK to 15.14, supports new 7zip features
* Stop relying on local hacks to LZMA SDK
* Support most ZIP64 features excluding directory compression
* Support LZMA-compressed files in ZIP archives
* Support Info-ZIP UTF-8 file name fields
* Fix phantom files/directories when browsing archives
* Report archive handling errors

-Update to expat 2.1.1 for security and bug fixes [Vas Crabb]

-xboxchihiro: usb is now partially usable [Samuele Zannoli]
* control,bulk,interrupt transfers work
* started hle simulation of usb devices on chihiro baseboard
* there is a first implementation of xbox game controller
* the chihiro bios can now enter system configuration menu

-hp9845: added capabilty to load option ROMs [F. Ulivi]

-ti99: Several code changes [Michael Zapf]
* GROMs with clock input line and improved timing behavior
* TMS9928A delivers GROMCLK if configured
* TI-99/8 mainboard: implemented custom chips (vaquerro,
mofetta, amigo) for low-level emulation
* fixed HOLD feature of TMS9995
* moved v9938 from console to EVPC where it belongs, dropped videowrp,
* fixed issues with paged37x cartridges
* fixed issues with Horizon Ramdisk

-n64: Do SI dma transfer after delay, not before [Happy]

-tourvis.cpp: changed to use Software Lists, trimmed all ROMs to
correct sizes, confirming that the majority match exactly the
PCE roms (only 3 differ, Gomola Speed which could be an alt
revision, R-Type II which has been hacked, and Be Ball where there
is an unknown single byte change. [David Haywood]

cemu 1.4.1 released

A new version of cemu released today, now to version 1.4.1

From the change log:


CPU: Added new instructions to recompiler: LWARX, STWCX, STWBRX, LHAUX, LHZUX, type 5, 6 & 7 for PSQ_L and type 5, 6 & 7 for PSQ_ST, DCBZ, ADDC, MFCR, FDIV, FADD, PS_SUB, PS_NEG.
CPU: Improved handling of XMM registers in recompiler. Drastically reducing the number of load/store operations when not enough registers are available.
CPU: Added SUBFME to interpreter.

coreinit: New API __ghs_mtx_init(), __ghs_mtx_dst(), __ghs_mtx_lock(), __ghs_mtx_unlock(), OSSleepThread()
coreinit: Added weak-symbol 'environ'

RPL: Added support for SDA and SDA2

fsa: Asynchronous file operations now support sending the result via message queue (instead of callback)

GX2: Added vertex data cache (cache vertex data in GPU memory instead of re-uploading it for every drawcall)
GX2: Fixed texture decoding for compressed textures with a size smaller than 16x16
GX2: Fixed AMD issue that occurred when glDrawBuffers() enables unused color attachment
GX2: Fixed AMD issue that occurred when glPrimitiveRestartIndexNV is used instead of glPrimitiveRestartIndex
GX2: Fixed AMD driver crash that could happen after shader compilation.
GX2: Fixed a multitude of issues when using Intel GPUs. Graphics are still horribly broken due to Intel's lacking OpenGL driver, but at least we can say we tried our best :)
GX2: Invalidate destination texture in cache after GX2SurfaceCopy()

vpad: Clamp left and right stick to length 1.0

### New in public release ###

general: CEMU now displays which GPU is used in the titlebar.

GX2: Fixed a timing related bug that could cause the emulator to stop rendering frames.

puNES v0.99 released!

puNES is an emulator under development that works on Linux32/64 and Windows32/64. The SDL version, of course, needs of SDL libraries to run. Uncompress the zip/tar file in a subdirectory and use. The emulator, finally, supports compressed archives.

Changelog:



(Windows) Fixed bug that allows the monitor turned off during a game session.
Added "Pause" shortcut.
Better support for the submappers in NES 2.0.
Fix for recognize correctly the CHR RAM size with the NES 2.0.
Fixed saving of the option 'Permit "Up + Down" and "Left + Right"...' in the configuration file.
Added two new palettes (Thanks to Firebrandx for his work http://www.firebrandx.com/nespalette.html).
Fixed the mirroring in the VRC2 mapper.
Added the full support for the RetroArch's shaders (https://github.com/libretro/common-shaders).
OpenGL version support ".glslp" and ".cgp" (linux version need that is istalled the nvidia-cg-toolkit package) shaders.
D3D9 version support only ".cgp" shaders. Then, based on experience made in these months of development, in D3D9 version many shader ".cgp" do not work (such as CRT-royale), it seems that this shaders has been developed for the OpenGL version.

high v098 released!

higan (formerly bsnes) is a Nintendo multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:
- Famicom
- Super Famicom
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Game Boy Advance

higan also supports the following subsystems:
- Super Game Boy
- BS-X Satellaview
- Sufami Turbo


This release adds WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color and SwanCrystal emulation. Note that the SwanCrystal is 99.9% identical to the WonderSwan Color sans the LCD panel type; thus going forward I won't be including it in the list of emulated systems.
Please note that this will be the final higan release to include the balanced and performance cores. The accuracy core has now become the only core used by higan.
Furthermore, to simplify naming, the internal emulation cores are now nameless. This means bnes, bsnes, bgb, bgba and bws are now all just part of higan. loki is thus both a subset (the SNES core alone) and superset (with added debugging capabilities) of higan. The internal names were meaningless anyway, as they were never exposed anywhere except one line in each core's source code.
