RuMSX 0.40 Released


- Display driver (normal and hires) are completely rewritten. The new sprite-renderer includes also a completely changed coincidence detection. Games such as "Hydefos" or "Psycho World" are now running properly!
- Added "MSX2[b]" configuration with 256KB RAM in Slot 3-3, which is required by many disk-images. This is compatible to the Sony (HB-F700D) layout, that supports POKE-1,255 for running many games.
- Code is now optimized for Pentium Pro and higher.
- Major enhancements of the RuMSX core do now require at least a processor with 1 GHz (1.5GHz recommended)
- Added support for ROM-database including the RUMSXROM.EXE command-line utility for database maintenance. The initial database contains more than 500 known ROMs.
- "Harry Fox with Snow Demonking" did not run on MSX 2+ and MSX Turbo-R machines. This is now fixed!
- Incorrectly selected 16KB ROM-types (e.g. ASCII/16K) sometimes caused RuMSX to crash!
- Support of OPLL audio (MSX-Music, FM-PAC) slightly improved (notes should no longer 'hang').
- Support of video capture hardware slightly improved (video display is now scaled).
- Switched I/O (ports &H40-&H4F) did not work fully correct, therefore Kanji-modes 1+3 displayed filled blocks instead of proper characters (this bug was new since RuMSX v0.32).
- SCC+ access is now recognized (played as SCC sound).
- Added previously removed Hangul ROMs again.
- Added '/NoSoundOut' command-line option to disable annoying MSX sounds.
- Added "International (DIN)" font to locale settings. (provides the DIN "0" character)

Mednafen 0.5.2 Released


Modified the PCE code to only include header files that are needed.

Fixed a memory leak in the state saving code.

PCE: Closing HES music files will no longer produce battery-backed RAM files. x_x

Fixed a memory leak in the state loading code.

Reduced memory slightly in the text rendering code by using all the bits available in the array(instead of the lower bit of each byte) that tells if a glyph is available or not.

Modified the internal message display code to allocate and free space for the message being displayed, rather than using a rather small static array.

PCE: Fixed a small bug that would cause 1/75 second or less of the old CDDA track to play when switching to a new CDDA track.

PCE: Changed how reads from $0000 are handled, and made vblank occur slightly later in the frame, to fix Valis 1.

PCE: The CD reset function of $1804 now clears more variables, fixing problems with lockups when using the START+SELECT soft reset in the middle of a data read.

Finally fixed the endian conversion code so that save states(and netplay) are compatible between big-endian and little-endian systems.
**NOTE** Save states created in previous versions of Mednafen on big endian platforms(such as OS/X PPC) will no longer work in this version.

Removed the tech documentation from the source code distribution.

Truncated the ChangeLog to the first Nintencer release.

Monkey 64 WIP News Update (Nintendo 64 Emulator for PSP)

PSMonkey has again posted an update on the status of his Nintendo64 Emulator for the PSP, heres what he posted tonight:


Well after some back and forth I figured a few things out. For some reason I dont need to byteswap the pif ram where pc emulators do. So with this and a few corrections I got input working. Even better is the fixing of SI transfer now keeps a few homebrew games from crashing.

So here are some screenshots of Pong by omar, Liner (I dont understand the point of this game), Manic Minor & MM hiden levels (oddly enough its very dark), & the wonderful n64 logo returns from waverace (do note that no comercial games run, this just this logo shows up since it draws to the framebuffer with no use of the rsp/rdp). Anyways enjoy. More updates to come when more progress is made.

clrmamepro 3.84 Released


• added: profiler option: 'parse merge tags' (default = off) Enabling this will add support for 'merge' in datfiles. This is generally some additional merging information, commonly used to ignore identical files within a parent/clone relationship with different names. When you enable this option and scan sets which were scanned without that option in the past, you run into some wrong name / unneeded file (move to parent) messages. That's normal (since that's exactly what the merge tags were made for) and if you enable the fix options, they get fixed.
• added: profiler option 'don't create dummy clones' (default = on) Enabling this option will allow clrmamepro to split-merge fake clones (100% identical sets within a parent/clone relationship). In other words they will be fully merged into the parent. Toggling these new options will clean the profiler cache, too.
• misc: little merger speed increase
• misc: using latest zipclass library

Mednafen 0.5.1 Released


0.5.1:
Fixed a crashy bug with hq2x, hq3x, and hq4x when using big-endian systems, or when the "vdriver" setting is set to "1".

0.5.0:
Added a frame-advance feature. Press ALT+A to enter frame-advance mode, and subsequently to advance frames, and ALT+R to exit frame-advance mode.

The current machine state is now saved at the end of movies, to allow for the future implementation of the seamless continuation of an already recorded movie.

PCE: When loading from a physical disc, auxillary data(save states, movies, etc.) prefixes should now always be "cdrom", rather than "cdrom" for the default device and the given name for other devices, because this(previous) behavior caused problems under Win32(where colons couldn't be used in filenames).

NES: Fixed FDS sound output(it was technically outputting before, but the volume was so low as to be inaudible).

NES: The disk system BIOS can now be in iNES format.

NES: The Game Genie and FDS ROM image loaders can now load the ROM image from a gzip or zip compressed file.

Revised the documentation to remove misleading statements(that applied to FCE Ultra) and add some missing information.

Updated the command-line section of the documentation with warnings and notes regarding settings, network play, and movies.

PCE: Fixed more bugs with CD reading when sound is disabled.

Loading a save state while recording a movie will now embed that save state in the movie file.

PCE: Save state previews are now generated with correct horizontal linear interpolation, fixing icky blockiness.

NES: It's now possible to record movies with any virtual input devices(like the Zapper), though the nes.input1, nes.input2, and nes.fcexp settings must be set the same as they were at recording time, before playback.

NES: All currently used expansion input devices are now saved in save states(before only gamepad data was saved).

Added a network play setting to merge all local input into one virtual remote input(via inclusive OR on the server), to allow for those UTTERLY SILLY games that support multiple players on one gamepad/joystick.

Worked around an SDL bug(or feature? :b) that was causing events to be processed by SDL instead of Mednafen when SDL_JoystickEventState() is called.

Scrapped the old movie format from FCE Ultra, and replaced it with a simplified version that simply writes the joystick inputs to the movie file stream each frame, and lets zlib handle the compression and encoding. This is incompatible with the old format, sorry.

Movies are now stored in the right directory finally(mcm vs mcs).

Rewrote most of the on-screen display code to work with a separate 256x224 buffer that is scaled and blitted independently of the main game's video output buffer. Note that if you have OpenGL disabled(via "-vdriver 1"), the overlay will not be scaled.

PCE: Added support for multiple resolutions per frame, as used in such games as "Asuka 120%" and "Ryuuko no Ken".

PCE: Adjusted the internal resolution(and outputted aspect ratio) slightly when using the ~7MHz dot-clock.

PCE: Added movie recording support.

PCE: Adjusted ADPCM volume.

PCE: Fixed left overscan clearing and disabled background lines clearing.

The trio code is no longer compiled with -ffast-math.

Removed netplay divider support(it didn't really work all that well anyway), and removed it from the server as well.

PCE: Changes to the IRQ masking register are now delayed by one instruction, thanks to D. Michel for the information.

Status messages are now displayed for 2.5 seconds, rather than 180 frames.

Changed save state display timing from frames to seconds, and set it to display for 2 seconds after a number is pressed(previously it was around 3).

Added the following settings: nes.ggrom, path_snap, path_sav, path_state, path_movie, path_cheat, path_palette.

Changed the data types of "bool" variables that are saved in save states to uint8, to address more cross-platform save-state compatibility issues.

Fixed a problem with save states on big-endian platforms(was dividing by sizeof(uint32) instead of sizeof(uint16) in a few places).

Fixed hq2x, hq3x, and hq4x filters on big-endian platforms.

PCE: Pushing the virtual reset or power button during CD reads will no longer cause the emulator to fail on subsequent reads(a few variables weren't being reset properly).

Server currently down, stay tuned

One of our servers are currently down due to a DOS attack. Some of the sites affected are www.juventuz.com, www.pj64.net, www.apollo64.com, www.dolphin-emu.com, www.slipknotcpd.com, visitors from those sites are currently directed here.

Though the attacks were blocked by our server, too much stress was made on the routers and the server company had to take the server offline. We're currently working on getting the server up as quickly as possible, but the server company is very slow and not very cooperative, which is the reason it's taking so long.

Please bare with us, we're doing everything we can. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Regards,

Martin

GameEx 5.70 Released


Enhancements:
Themes/Theme Editor:
• Thanks to Ben AKA HeadKaze, GameEx now has an awesome theme editor.
• It's really a fantastic enhancement to GameEx, and is beautifully coded.
• You must check it out, its highly substantial so I want list all the features but will just say what is not implemented just yet: Font Colour can't be changed just yet, Custom Emu backgrounds, and custom control panel will be coming soon. The editor only works with V2 themes (templates included in the install,) and currently these are fixed to full screen usage only. There maybe a few minor issues with all this, so if you find any please report on the forum.
MAME:
• New lists for Horizontal and Vertical games
Control/Input:
• There is an option to use all and any attached Game device at the same time rather than just the first device or chosen one.
• There's a shortcut control to show the game information page, so you can add to favourites etc if you turned this off
Emulators:
• Database support. GameEx now has database support for emulators, allowing you to navigate and show games much like you do for MAME. You can navigate by name, manufacturer, category, and year, and descriptions are shown for the games. Thanks to Craig Steinbeck there's an already an N64 database done, which is included with the install. Huge thanks Craig, without you this would've been months off.
• Theres an option for each emulator to run as a single PC Game. So if you have an emulator setup just as one game, say you have special control mappings for it, you can have GameEx skip displaying the list and just have gameex launch the first/only game.
Jukebox:
• Added FLAC support
• There's now a CD Player with automatic CDDB internet lookup.
• For registered users GameEx now has a one click CD Ripper. Simply insert a CD, Rip with full tag support, and automatically add it your library and play - without dropping back to windows.
• There a small graphic equalizer that displays when a track is playing, either on the taskbar, or if the track is currently visible in the showing list, next to the track name.
• New: Playlist. You can now view and navigate the current Jukebox play list.
Display:
• There's an additional even bigger font size setting.
• Please Wait animation is more slick, and only displays if waiting more than a second. There's also new graphics for this for the other non MCE style included themes so it blends in nicely.

Fixes
• MNG videos no longer flicker.
• Fixes configuration application truncating removed games.
• Fixes custom emulator background video back bug.
• Screensaver videos not playing
• Various other fixes.

PCSX2 - Grandia 3 Ingame!

Posted over on PCSX2.net, General Plot has been busy testing and 'playing' Grandia 3, here's what was posted:


General Plot has been strangely happy these past few days, slowly taking screenshots and recording a video from Grandia 3, betatesting has warped his mind, now he finds 0.x-2 FPS 'fun' :P.

So yes you guessed it, there's a video with this news post, but you have to admit, seeing something in motion truly gives a better impression of what it looks like!

Video is AVI using xVid so you will need a media player capable of playing back this format. This file is being shared using Bit Torrent, so you will need a torrent client, such as uTorrent to download this video.

Grandia 3 Ingame
1 Minutes 13 Seconds | 13.8 MB | Real Ingame Speed - 1.5-2 FPS.

Along with this video, there is a selection of screenshots posted on the official forums: here, feel free to check them out.

Atari Jaguar Emulation Hits the PSP

Plynx who has already released an Atari Lynx emulator for the PSP has now ported Virtual Jaguar the Atari Jaguar Emulator to the PSP.



Heres what he posted:


I've tried, just for fun, to port Virtual Jaguar to the PSP. Put the Jaguar BIOS image (jagboot.rom) in the same directory as the EBOOT. Rename the cartridge image to cf.jag and put it in the same directory. I've tried Cannon Fodder and Atari Karts ... and ... it's pretty slow, be patient

See Virtual Jaguar website for compatibility stats. (DSP is not enabled)

Keys :

A - Square
B - Triangle
C - Circle
Pause - Start
Option - Select


It seems most Commercial Jaguar games work and although the speed is very slow its the first Jaguar emulator for not only the PSP but im sure any console :)

Amazing Work Plynx, More screenshots and the Download at his site here --> http://plynx.dcemu.co.uk/

Leave feedback ;)

Monkey 64 News (Nintendo 64 Emulator for the PSP)

PSMonkey has posted some great news about the progression of his Nintendo 64 Emulator for the PSP, he decided to write a Nintendo 64 emulator from scratch to get a better emulator in the long run and now it looks like things are already starting to come along nicely, heres what he posted:


O M F GOD

God bless my gf and her taking over the pc for 20 mins. If not for her I would have not tested out all the PD roms I have on my PSP. Thanks to this I now have 2 count that, 2 brand new demos up and running. They are liners & 1964. Both would actualy progress furter if not for the lack of input/pif emulation.

Tomorrow I plan to test more PD roms and see if others work. At the moment everything else causes the psp to lock up somewhere (and roughly near each other). So hopefuly I can debug and fix this soon. Anyways great news & enjoy the screenshots (see comment section)!!!

P.S. The Framerate is around 5.0-7.4 fps. A vast improvement over the previous 1.8 fps i was getting on fire demo.


Check out the screenshots of this improving Nintendo 64 Emulator for the PSP on his site hosted by DCEmu/Emulation 64 Network here --> http://nemo.dcemu.co.uk

Great work, cant wait to play Mario 64 one day :)
 

Mednafen 0.4.9 Released


GB/GBA: Added configurable rapid fire buttons for virtual buttons A and B.

NES: Disabling the background now works properly(it no longer also disables sprites!).

PCE: Disabling background layers now replaces that layer with an obnoxious green color that shouldn't be used by any games, to make sprite ripping easier.

Added settings "fftoggle" and "ffnosound", to make the fast-forwarding button a toggle switch, and to silence sound during fast-forwarding, respectively.

PCE: CDDA playback interrupt and looping enabled flags are now reset properly, fixing a lockup that occurs when facing a boss in Valis 2, and possibly other games.

Nintendo 64 Port to PSP WIP News

Heres an update of the Port of Nincest the Nintendo 64 Emulator to the PSP Console:


Nincest 64 / M64

I have today officialy desided, and already underway, to rewrite the emulator from scrach. As most know by now. I have taken up the emulator full time along with Iris (but iris has higher priority to me). Every thing I correct on the emulator in turn makes stuff stop working which is sad. Its like repairing a model house with good glue only to have the crapy glue hate the good glue and fall apart. With the rewrite comes a new name. In the mean time the project will be called M64 for Monkey 64. The project will stay open source because this project only exsist because of the great work of others in the n64 emulation scene. So every build will also include the full source.


More info at PS Monkeys Site.

Project64 LLE news

zilmar posted some interesting news on LLE emulation at EmuTalk:


One of the new things that have now been added in to the current beta of project 64 is low level graphics. It is slow running at 5-30 fps on my machine, so you would not want to play a game with it. Some games look great, others not so good. Here are a couple of screen shots. Feel free to discuss this here.

Mednafen 0.4.7 Released


0.4.7:
Fixed the NES PPC AltiVec resampling code by properly aligning an output array.

Fixed NES sound emulation on 32-bit platforms(omitting the buffer size to Blip_Buffer::set_sample_rate() was causing an assert to go off on <64-bit platforms).

0.4.6:
Dropped the libsamplerate dependency.

NES: Replaced the resampling code from the intermediate frequency after FIR resample with Blip_Buffer. The only audible effect seems to be a slight lowpass filter effect.

PCE: Integrated the CDDA playback code into the main PCE CDROM emulation code by using Blip_Buffer.

PCE: Removed the compressor and cddaquality settings.

Updated the Russian PO file, mostly to remove or fix grossly incorrect "fuzzy" entries. Added an incomplete Spanish(Spain) PO file.

PCE: If a data sector read from a physical disc fails, it will be reattempted continuously until it succeeds, or the user presses the exit key(F12 by default). (note that this may appear to lock up Mednafen, but the exit key will still work) This *should* fix problems with physical PCE CDs under Mac OS/X and MS Windows.

Merged trio(http://daniel.haxx.se/projects/trio/) into Mednafen to fix format-string problems on non-glibc systems(MS Windows for example!).

GB: Modified the APU emulation code to silence a gcc warning.

PCE, Lynx, GB, GBA: Doubled the size of the Blip_Buffer phase offset table for slightly higher sound quality.

PCE: Fixed ADPCM playback code for when sound is disabled(it was ultimately causing a crash in earlier versions).

Converted the MD5 functions to a class.

Fixed(hopefully) compilation on non-Apple PowerPC systems.

Fixed save-state support for saving/loading arrays of 16-bit and 32-bit variables(the hints were already there, but the code to handle the hints was nonexistant). Note that this change will cause incompatibilities between old save states and this version on big-endian platforms.

Removed the included "m4" directory, updated autogen.sh, and reran it to regenerate aclocal.m4 with newer(and fixed on AMD64) versions of the gettext autoconf scripts. See: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=349845

You do not own us! We would still be here without you and just as strong!
This project is dedicated to all scene coders out there keeping up the good fight to progress the scene and not for cash, fame or being bought out by sites. This project is dead from here on out untill this scene improves!

If you wish to join my protest, please visit my homepage. http://nemo.dcemu.co.uk

Enjoy the emu. Ps, This wont run commercial n64 roms.

// Info

This is theoreticaly the first n64 emulator on the psp. It only runs 2 PD/Homebrew demos (stars & fire) which are included with the release. If the scene improves. I will come back and eventualy get a working emulator that will allow psp users to play smaller n64 games like mario 64 on their psp. If not, this emulator stops here. Also do note the source is included.

// To Use

1) Copy the "n64" Folder to the root of the memory stick.
..) Example "G:" (replace G: with your psp drive letter)
2) Copy the files from the folder containing your psp version number
..) Example, 1.0 users will go into 1.0 folder and copy the psp directory to the root of the memory stick.
3) Run the software

// Greetings

wraggster, GPF, Pochi, Zeenbor, Lac, Everybody who worked on this emu & all at dcemu!
