higan v093r11

higan (formerly known as bsnes) is a Super Game Boy, BS-X Satellaview, Sufami Turbo, Famicom, Super Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS emulator, that began development on 2004-10-14. It focuses on accuracy and clean code above all else. It never uses speed or compatibilty hacks. As a result, the minimum system requirements are greater than with other emulators.



Here's release info:

I'm posting a beta release of higan, in the hopes of getting some feedback on the new library system (pictured below; more info on the forums), and reports of any potential new regressions before an official release.

Also, as of v093r08, the Game Boy and Game Boy Color PPU are now cycle-based, allowing raster effects such as those used in Prehistorik Man. This is in addition to several major improvements to the Game Boy emulation code.

If you're willing to test this, and provide feedback on the forum, it'd be appreciated. Thanks!

Reicast - Dreamcast emulator for Android

As of, well, today, the alpha version of Sega Dreamcast emulator Reicast is available for Android. It's essentially an Android-based version of Nulldce.

Quick warning: the developer of Reicast reckons that you'll need to have at least a Cortex-A9 dual-core 1GHz+ processor in your Android device to run Reicast properly.

Given this is an alpha version of Reicast, you might obviously come across a few bugs. Otherwise, you should have no problem running the likes of Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Soul Calibur, Resident Evil Code: Veronica, and more.

Reicast even works on the Ouya, by the way. So, if you have one to hand, you download the .apk file and get it running on a big screen.

You can download Reicast for free on Google Play [Download here] right now.

Hyrule Warriors

Nintendo Unveils New Wii U Zelda Title,
Hyrule Warriors

Nintendo has just announced a new game in the Zelda universe, one out in 2014 that combines the franchise with another
very popular non-Nintendo series, it seems. The working title is “Hyrule Warriors,” and from the debut trailer it very obviously
looks like an amalgam of The Legend of Zelda and the famed Dynasty Warriors series where players cleave through legions of
enemies and fight larger bosses in open battle.

In the trailer, we see Link using many of his most trusted weapons at his disposal to dispatch swarms of enemies, from bombs
to his Master Sword. Hyrule Warriors, or whatever they do end up calling it, will be out for the Wii U next year, and is being
developed by Tecmo Koei.

It should be clarified that Nintendo has come out and said this is not the next-gen Wii U Zelda title that’s taking so long to develop.
This is a spin-off project, and those expecting a lengthy, deep Zelda experience may be disappointed.
That said, what’s being shown does look incredibly fun. Honestly, and I can’t remember the last time I’ve said this, it might actually
be fun to play with a Wiimote, judging from the style of gameplay. Even just a minute or so of the game makes it look like a blast,
though I suppose Dynasty Warriors style combat isn’t necessarily for everyone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BtelgRzc3IU

I do hope Hyrule Warriors has effective co-op play, as it’s the sort of thing this style of game is made for. I would love to see other
playable characters from Sheik to Skull Kid, complete with their own move sets. Another slight disappointment is that the game looks
rather dated, even for the Wii U, presumably because of how many enemies have to be rendered onscreen at once. But at this point,
we’ve learned never to play Nintendo games for the graphics, and that usually works out just fine.
Even if it isn’t Nintendo’s next big Zelda title, it does look like fun and will certainly please their fanbase. Hopefully this is a sign of
the Wii U coming into its own, and Nintendo understanding the proper way to utilize their franchises to keep their customers happy
between big releases.
More info about the game as we hear it, but so far, this is looking like a slam dunk for Nintendo.

PPSSPP 0.9.6

PPSSPP can run your PSP games on your PC in full HD resolution, and play them on Android too. It can even upscale textures that would otherwise be too blurry as they were made for the small screen of the original PSP.



Here's changelog for 0.9.6(-2) release:

+ Large general speed improvements and assorted bug fixes
+ "Software Skinning" option which speeds up many games with animated 3D characters (but may slow down a few, like Monster Hunter - experiment with turning it off)
+ Various fixes around stencil/alpha, reducing glow problems in Wipeout and Gods Eater Burst.
+ Timing improvements making more games run at the correct FPS, also fixing some audio issues
+ More debugger features
+ Better looking and individually resizable touch controls
+ Automatic install of games from ZIP files, like demos and many homebrew.
+ Software renderer improvements
+ VERY basic ad-hoc online play support, to be improved in future versions.
+ fixed bug that causes the game list on Android to either display a blank or crash if it sees a ZIP or RAR file

LolSnes-- SNES emulator for Nds

I hope this project will bring some new life into the SNES-on-DS scene. It looks like all the existing emulators for the DS are dormant or discontinued, which is sad.

lolSnes is a project that Mega-Mario started two years ago. He wished to make a SNES emulator for the DS, that could render most sane games without glitches. However after inadvertently following the wrong approach with the PPU side: trying to make a line-accurate software renderer. The DS just wasn't powerful enough to handle such a renderer. That discovery pretty much shattered any motivation and the project stayed dormant for two years.

But now he is back to working on it again and coded the PPU using the DS's 2D video hardware.

So far, SMW is playable, to some extent. The background layer tends to obstruct text like menus and info boxes because per-tile priorities aren't emulated yet.

You also can't get past Donut Plains 2: for some reason, the camera keeps rewinding and moving forward a bit at the start of the level, keeping you from going further. Aside from this bug, game play is near perfect. The game also runs at full speed (albeit with a speedhack).

Screenshot


* Main CPU: 99% -- all opcodes emulated, may miss some unimportant bits though
* PPU: ~30% -- Mode 1 BG and OBJ supported, as well as some of the priority
* SPC700: 80% -- most useful opcodes implemented, as well as I/O (SPC/CPU comm, timers)
* DSP: 0% -- what it says. No sound yet.
* Joypad input for joypad 1

Issues

* There is no interface for selecting a ROM-- it is hardcoded to load snes/rom.smc
* Tearing and black pixels tend to appear when backgrounds scroll, because writes to the BG scroll registers are applied directly and not synced to the DS display
* CPU bugs are hidden in the main CPU core, and possibly the SPC700 core. They may bite you when you expect it the least.

For those who are interested, the source code is available in a Github repo.

Stay tuned to GbaTemp for an update.

4DO 1.3.2.3

4DO is an open-source, low-level emulator based on the FreeDO source code. 4DO was able to inherit many great features from FreeDO: high-definition rendering, clock speed adjustments, and the impressive emulation accuracy!
The development of 4DO has introduced several unique features as well: intuitive controller setup, native joystick support, and support for up to 6 players; game identification system; easy-to-use quick save/load system; game compatibility fixes, and multilanguage support.



Here's changelog for latest release:


+ Fixed file extraction – File extraction from the file browser was not functioning because of a missing DLL from the released 1.3.2.2 files.
+ File browser tweaks – Users can now cancel copy operations, and basic progress indicators have been added.

Dolphin 4.0.2

Dolphin is an emulator for two recent Nintendo video game consoles: the GameCube and the Wii. It allows PC gamers to enjoy games for these two consoles in full HD (1080p) with several enhancements: compatibility with all PC controllers, turbo speed, networked multiplayer, and even more!



What's new for latest version:

One month after the 4.0.1 release we're releasing the maintenance release 4.0.2. It turned out that some critical regressions had slipped into the 4.0 release due to the major changes linked to the wii-network branch and the global user directory changes.

In particular, one of the fixed issues was related to incorrect usage of wxWidgets and caused various problems with general Dolphin usage on Windows systems with Unicode characters in their user name (e.g. "François" or "あいうえお").

Some rather technical issues caused multiple games to stop booting or to freeze randomly. We've had multiple issue reports on this bug, so it's great to see that we were able to fix this properly.
