MAME 0.193 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:

Rustual. Boy v0.2.0a released

Rustual Boy is a Virtual Boy emulator. It can be used to play existing Virtual Boy games, as well as be a helpful development/debugging tool for homebrew for this platform. The name "Rustual Boy" is a portmanteau of the words "Rust" and "Virtual Boy". Ok, the "Virtual Boy" part was obvious, but why "Rust"? In fact, Rustual Boy is written in the Rust programming language - a "systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety." Rust is a wonderful language with a thriving community, and as such provides a fantastic platform for an emulation project!

Rustual Boy v0.2.0a Changlog:



This is a quick end-of-2017 release that includes all of the many bugfixes/improvements we've added throughout the year, including improved game compatibility, better debugging features, audio bugfixes, and much more!
The executables in these archives are still considered early builds (hence v0.2.0, see status for more info) but you're more than welcome to grab one and give it a shot. If you run into any trouble, let us know!

OpenEmu 2.0.6.1 released!

OpenEmu 2.0.6.1 requires macOS (OS X) 10.11 or above

OpenEmu is an open source project to bring game emulation to OS X as a first class citizen, leveraging modern OS X technologies such as Cocoa, Core Animation and Quartz, and 3rd party libraries like Sparkle for auto-updating. OpenEmu is based on a modular architecture, allowing for game-engine plugins, this means OpenEmu can support a host of different emulation engines and back-ends while retaining a familiar OS X native front-end.

OpenEmu 2.0.6.1 changelog:


Added Sega Saturn system support. — Very CPU intensive, minimum requirement of a quad-core i7 processor for full speed.
Added GLideN64 as the new default Mupen64Plus GPU plugin, significantly improving N64 graphics. — Overall game compatibility will further improve in a future update.
Added Quick Look support in the Screenshots collection by pressing Space bar.
Added light gun support for Sega Master System.
Removed deprecated core plugins and their save states on launch.
Improved N64 graphics
Improved UX for deleting games so they cannot be orphaned in the Game Library folder.
Improved UX for importing M3U files where they could fail or crash.
Improved Touch Bar graphics.
Improved algorithm for reading the serial of a PlayStation game.
Fixed a hang that occurs on 10.13 High Sierra.
Fixed regression with compressed files not being correctly imported. — Would import decompressed but with the original compressed file extension.
Fixed case where changing Game Library folder location could fail.
Fixed case where clearing a control mapping would not save between launches.
Fixed a crash accessing Game Library on NAS/SMB shares or external drives.
Fixed a crash when deleting a game that was already deleted.
Fixed a crash when downloading nonexistent cover art for a Homebrew collection game.
Fixed a rare crash using cheat codes.
Fixed Wii U Pro Controller analog axis range.
Fixed fast forwarding interfering with pausing gameplay.
Fixed sidebar not remembering width changes between launches.
Fixed unwanted interpolation in screenshots.

PPC/JIT: Implemented CRAND and SYNC instructions

coreinit: Added API FSSetUserData, FSGetUserData, OSAndAtomic64, OSOrAtomic64, FSMakeDir

GX2: Fixed mismatching pixel shader imports when a geometry shader is used (caused render glitches on AMD and Intel GPUs)
GX2: Added API GX2SetDRCConnectCallback

nn_boss: Implemented additional API

nsyskbd: Added minimalistic usb keyboard implementation (no functionality, but it prevents games from softlocking or crashing)

melonDS v0.6 released!

melonDS is an open source Nintendo DS(NDS) emulator. melonDS is part of a second wave of DS emulators.

melonDS v0.6 Changelog:



So what's new in melonDS 0.6? Little emulation wise, a bit more UI wise.


First of all, I want to thank the artists who have been (and are still) drawing all sorts of rad icons for melonDS. For 0.7, I will pick the one I like the best (and it won't be easy, heh). Thing is, I want to put the icon in the melonDS windows, and I will need to add support to libui. Which also means embedding the icons in some portable format, because each OS does its own thing when it comes to window icons.


Emulation wise, the big thing is the sound fix I talked about in a previous blog post. I already went in detail over this, but, long story short, surround works now. And sound emulation is more accurate, that can only be good.

There. The rest is meaningless shenanigans.


UI wise, you get fancy display modes now. Those were also discussed in a previous blog post, so no big surprise there.

The only thing that was added is a toggle for linear filtering, for those who like pixels.

The rest is, well, little bug fixes. Under Windows, you can now load ROMs with non-ASCII characters in their paths. As a side note, under Linux and OSX, fopen() can take UTF8 paths, but Windows requires a separate codepath because herpderp. fopen() can only take ASCII, for anything outside of that you need to use the Windows-only _wfopen() which takes wide-char strings. In the end, the code is a bit ugly, but it works.


That's about it for this release. But stay tuned, 0.7 should bring in some Christmas fun.
