PSPColem 1.0.8 Released


- Save state files are now saved using gzip compression (with STZ as file extention). It's much faster to save or load states now. You can use gzip or 7-zip to convert old STA to STZ. STA file format is still supported for loading, so you convert your previous saved files inside the emulator.
- Save state dates are displayed in the emulator window (it's now easier to identify and to load the right save state slot)
- New graphical functions with new smoother render modes. It uses the PSP GPU for rendering, it does not run faster, but it's a lot smoother.
- Add a new fullscreen option (render mode max)
- Bug fix in Rom file requester
- Multiple keyboard mapping feature (Thanks to Pou-chan) : You can now toggle between three differents keyboard mapping using

SNEmulDS 0.4 beta Released


SNEmulDS 0.4 alpha contained a lot of stupid bugs that i fixed in this beta release. There are still bugs, but i think it worth a try for most users, because a lot of games were broken. I also added a manual background layers selector.

Here is the complete list of changes:
• Fixed the broken BREAK and COP instructions
• Fixed the ROM write protection by using the protection unit of the ARM9 (thanks to bubble2k for pointing me that)
• Fixed the Emulation flag at startup (problem with DKC3)
• Stupid again, SNES’s RAM was not in the cached memory, speed up games (10-20%)
• Reduced memory consumption, now ROM memory is static (no more malloced), should remove ROM overflow and RAM overwriten problems
• Added an experimental “line by line” engine (buggy, slow, unstable, uncomplete… maybe useful for a few games)
• Added a manual background priority selector (can be choosen in options or with START+LEFT+RIGHT+UP or START+LEFT+RIGHT+DOWN for automatic)
• Added another speed hack option : “Interrupt speed hacks” that should be better than “Full speed hacks” for some games. “Middle speed hacks” is now “Cycles speed hacks”

As usual you may have to patch it with DLDI drivers, for more information see here : http://chishm.drunkencoders.com/DLDI/

Raine 0.50.3 Released


• Added support for a frogger hack which adds hiscore table, see http://www.jrok.com/sohs/frogger/frogger.html The rom should be renamed as froggs.zip. The permanent ram is saved on disk, no hiscore.dat update required. Emudx support works also for this one (it doesn't change anything in the game).
• A little fix for the hiscores : They were loaded too late to be shown on the first screen of dkong (it starts by the hiscore table). So they are now loaded at the begining of the emulation and you see correctly the hiscore table in dkong now.
• The cheats.cfg file now supports a new syntax for clones with the same cheats, it makes the file 1/3 smaller (why didn't we do that earlier ???)
• Added donkey kong foundry (dkongex): http://www.jeffsromhack.com/products/donkeykong.htm
• Linux: Fixed fbcon support when using a driver which allows to change the video mode like matroxfb or nvidiafb : these drivers require a special handling in sdl to avoid a crash. Advice : use 16bpp at least for fbcon if you want to use raine with that, or expect a strange looking gui...
• Added galaxian, super galaxian, and galaxian part X, with emudx support. The original sound is not emulated for now, so you'd better use emudx samples if you want sound !
• Editable cheats, usually to select the game stage, are supported again.

[!] Fixed a blending bug
[^] Use 16-bit textures on the PSP to represent 16-bit N64 textures.

[!] Fixed a LoadTile bug, allowing a couple of hacks to be removed
[+] Added some new blend modes for various roms
[!] Fixed the Tri2 command for F3DLX microcodes
[!] Fixed a bug in busy-wait detection
[!] Fixed a few dynarec stability issues (relating to exceptions occuring mid-trace)
[+] Added audio support
[+] Added the ability to dump textures (developer builds only at the moment)
[!] Fixed screenshots. Again.
[+] Implemented cmp.s, cvt.s, cvt.w, mtc1, mfc1, bc1f, bc1t, j, cfc1, ctc1, daddu, trunc.w.s, bc1t, bc1f, bc1tl, bcifl, bnel, beql, blezl, bgtzl, bltzl, blezl in dynarec
[^] Avoid setting the branch delay flag and current PC in generated dynarec code unless necessary
[^] Much better memory access handling in dynamically recompiled code
[^] Use a second code buffer for generated dynarec code, to avoid polluting the instruction cache
[+] Further improve the memory access handling in generated dynarec code
[!] Fix register usage analysis for lwc1/swc1/mfc1/mtc1 which was preventing base registers used in these instructions from being cached
[^] Have compensation blocks restore nobbled registers, so on-trace code does't need to reload
[+] New automatic blender
[+] New front-end
[+] New pause menu, with option to reset to main menu

Please note - as audio support is very much 'beta' at the moment, it's disabled by default. You can enable the setting either in the front-end, or from the pause menu.

Please also note: To keep the distribution size down, I've not included any 'preview' pictures for the rom selector alongside the emulator. You can download and extract the 'Extras' file above for a few sample previews. It should be easy enough for people to create their own preview pictures - see the readme.txt for more details.

SNEmulDS 0.4 alpha Released


It has been a long time with no real updates of SNEmulDS.. This first release break this silence, and i hope it will please everyone. First of all, the main change is the integration of the CPU engine of SnezziDS. In fact, I wanted to make my own CPU engine in ASM, but i rapidly saw that i couldn’t do better than bubble2k did. I recognize his work as a masterpiece in DS homebrews. I personnally added some new features from the original C CPU of SNEmulDS: speed hacks, memory protection, and ROM paging/dynamic reloading (giving Large ROMs support for Slot-1 cards). All combined CPU engine and speed hacks give a great boost in speed.
There are also various changes:

• Implemented MODE 7
• Partial line by line engine for MODE 7 games
• Implemented MODE 3,4 (256 colors)
• Now SNEmulDS uses devkitpro 20 and libfat library from chishm with DLDI support, for better compatibility
• Improved ROM paging, reducing bugs for Large ROMs (> 3 Mo)
• Fixed memory leaks (And consequently, fixed famous “Unsupported Large LoRom” bug)
• Three level of speed hacks : no speed hacks, medium speed hacks, full speed hacks. Each level give various compatibility and speed enhancements.
• Fixed various bugs
• Now SNEmulDS sources are under GNU license, to be compatible with snezzids

(don’t forget to patch it with your DLDI driver, SNES games are loaded from SNES directory)

Gekko update - Teasing time!

After keeping a ton of secrets over Gekko's development, we finally decided to show a little part of one.

Here's a screenshot of the emulator running using it's own video plugin in action, you might not see a lot, but that's the goal!


There's still a lot of new stuff the emulator can do that you never saw before on other emulators, but it's up to you to wonder what they are.

Ootake 0.96 Released

A new version of the PC-Engine/Turbografx-16 emulator Ootake has been released. Here are the changes since the previous version:


- Interrupt processing was modeled on a real machine more. In the ending of
"Formation Soccer '90", the problem of freezing was solved.
- In "Mugen Senshi Valis", the problem that the time display had been hidden
was solved. Moreover, in other some games such as "Fantasy Zone", I think
that the vertical display beginning position became it as well as a real
machine.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

Emulation64.com server back to normal

As I'm sure you've noticed (if you're a regular visitor anyway :P) the Emulation64.com server has suffered some downtime the last few days, meaning both Emu64 and EmuTalk among other hosted sites has been unavailable.

Before people start speculating, the server is completely fine and has not been hacked, it was simply unplugged by the server company and it took many phone calls, faxes and support tickets before it finally went online only a few minutes ago.

I appreciate your support, and I hope you understand that I have done everything I can the last few days (and haven't had much sleep, mind you) to get it online as quickly as possible. Thanks to zilmar for news post at www.pj64.net while it was down. :)

FrodoDS - Test Build Released 06/02/07 - Commodore 64 Emulator for DS

GPF has released a new version of his Commodore64 emulator for the Nintendo DS, heres what he says:


well been working on getting the existing code moved to latest toolchain and libnds release.

Eventually it will have the ability to switch disk, right now I am kind of need some ideas on how best to do it, from a user standpoint. If I have some ideas I can start looking into the coding part

Well here is my latest version thats using the dldi patching code now, so hopefully will be able to work on most hardware now.

attached is an nds file that just needs to be dldi patched and copy that and the /rd directory to your media and put your d64 files and you can also place a snapshot created from the pc version and call it jjr.fss and that is loaded from the left trigger. right trigger still does a load"*",8,1 and then run

Please give me feedback compared to previous releases.

Thanks,
Troy(GPF)

Modified the time base adjustment code used when sound is disabled to fix fast-forwarding when sound is disabled.

"Fixed" a few instances of mostly harmless variable shadowing.

Mednafen is now compiled with -Wshadow.

Modified the save state preview rescaling code to properly(with interpolation instead of nearest-neighbor) rescale PCE games that use the 512pixel-width mode, or in other words... the rescaling code will now work where (fb_width / state_preview_width) <= 2 whereas previously it only worked properly where (fb_width / state_preview_width) < 2.

Errors saving save states are now propagated and reported.

NGP: Files with an extension of "npc" are now also treated as Neo Geo Pocket ROM images.

PC-FX: Added setting "pcfx.nospritelimit".

Removed the memory dump and graphics memory dump functionality from the main debugger. The new memory editor provides the same or higher level of functionality.

Added a new memory editor to the debugger interface, accessible by pressing ALT + 3 in the debugger.

PCE: Added support for reduced-bit-depth background mode.

If the ALSA driver code is unable to set stereo or mono sound, it will try mono or stereo sound instead, respectively.

PCE: PSG waveform RAM will now only be updated if the channel is turned off.

glFinish() will no longer be called every frame in the OpenGL code, which should improve performance(if it causes problems, like tearing where there wasn't any before or decreased performance, please file a bug report!).

If the "glvsync" setting is 1(the default), and the environment variable "__GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK" is not set at all(either 0 or any value), then it will be set to "1". This has the effect of forcing vblank synchronization when running under Linux with NVidia's drivers.

Fixed configure script option "--disable-jack".

Lynx: Screen rotation now works in non-OpenGL mode(SDL+framebuffer), sans scanlines support.

Lynx: Screen rotation now also rotates input sanely, as it did in 0.6.x and earlier versions.

Fixed a fatal compilation error in the ALSA driver with ALSA versions < 1.0.9.

Fixed a fatal compilation error on GCC < 3.4 in the PC-FX code.

Added code to detect the maximum OpenGL texture size, and reworked the OSD code to use tiled drawing if a particular OSD surface is too large to fit in a single texture. This is particularly relevant to users of old Voodoo cards. Note that tiled drawing isn't supported for the main game framebuffer, so video cards with severe texture size limitations will still have problems with PC Engine and PC-FX games that use higher resolution modes.

The help screen, debugger, and cheat search interface now use their own surfaces instead of the generic OSD surface.

Fixed(hopefully) OSD-clearing in SDL blit mode("-vdriver 1").

Removed the option "doublebuf". It is kind of an archaic leftover from when Mednafen did only one blit per frame(and had the OSD written to the game's virtual framebuffer). Double buffering must always be enabled, or else screen corruption may occur. Also, as a note, double buffering does not imply synchronizing to vblank, though this does occur in some situations.
***NOTE: Please check your scripts and frontends and remove any "-doublebuf" arguments! ***

MAME 0.112 Releases

Small snippet from the MAMEDev site:


Believe it or not, today marks the official 10th anniversary of the first release of MAME! To celebrate, we’ve got a whole bunch of new and cool stuff to share.

First off, we have the official release of MAME 0.112, with a typically huge number of great features. This is the first release with full CPS2 encryption emulation, meaning no more XORs and a number of new regions have been enabled. We also have full speech and sound emulation in Berzerk, a full rewrite of the old Midway black & white driver, a new SN76477 emulator, new crosshairs for lightgun games, the first working Cidelsa game from Spain, and the usual collection of cleanups/reorganizations to the code.

One of the newly supported games in 0.112 deserves special mention. Teeter Torture is a prototype game from Exidy that is very rare. With permission of the current rights holder for the game, I’m happy to announce that we have been able to dump the ROMs and make them publically available for non-commercial use. I encourage you to try the game out — it really is unique and happens to be one of the better prototype games that never officially made it to the arcade.

Read the full list of changes here or here (mirror).

- nds/2d: adjusted window width (nds=256, instead gba=240) (famicom wars demo)
- nds/memory: allows to execute code in vram (used by mariokart demo on nds7)
- iomap: replaced various "vals" by "io10seg" (matching to nds9/nds7 pages)
- nds/wifi/xcept: allows nintendo to write 00h/55h/AAh/FFh to read-only BB-ports
- nds/3d/irq: emulates gxfifo irq (used by lara/brainage demos)
- nds/3d/help: added notes on how/when to acknowledge gxfifo irq (see gxstat)
- nds/3d/dma: emulates gxfifo dma (used by submarine demo and possibly others)
- nds/dma: renamed/renumbered $profiler_id_dma (supporting the eight ds-modes)
- nds/3d/help: added GXFIFO DMA Overkill on Packed Commands Without Parameters
- setup: added gba-solar-sensor setting (now also in freeware version setup)
- setup: removed experimental rear-alpha option (tested / always enabled now)
- nds/backup: bugfix: forces no nds-backup in gba-mode (fixes fatalunexpected)
- nds/xboo: added upload-wait/timeout (for remote secure_area_extra_decryption)
- nds/dma: prevents gba-style dma3-capture on nds (fixes submarine demo freeze)
- nds/dma: simplified different dma mode bits by dma_kick_mask at mount_system
- nds/3d/help: added 3d-lockup note (on swapbuffers with incomplete vertex list)
- a22i: supports "NOT" operator (more or less, crashes on faulty priority order)
- a22i/bugfix: long/negative multiply in numeric expression (swapped lsw2/msw2)
- nds/3d: handles 8bit ldrb reads from 3d ports (4000320h and up)
- gba/nds-cartloader: fixed crash on loading GBA-carts from inside NDS7-mode
- thanks: RockmanRotties and Diablow for bugreports on demos and fatalunexpected

Ootake 0.95 Released


- It corresponded to operation by "Windows Vista". It operates almost normally in the "FullScreen" mode. However, there are still the following three problems.
  * The smoothing of the image quality is not effective. (It becomes a little hard image quality. The processing is a little heavier than WindowsXP.)
  * In the window mode, "V-Sync" doesn't work. (The image flickers a little when scrolling.)
  * In the window mode, operation slows when the sidebar and the gadget, etc. are displayed.
  If the driver of nVidia for Vista perfection goes up, the above issue might be solved. (It is unconfirmed in the video cards other than made of nVidia now.) Therefore, the current state recommends the use set to "Setting->Screen-> Start FullScreen mode" by the menu. I think that the Ootake side can correspond to complete operation (include for Aero) in the Vista window mode in the future.
- Processing related to drawing and playing sounds was sped up (lightened) in some measure. * Compared with me
- The system requirements was done for "DirectX8.1 or more". I think that tone quality improved according to the environment. If you use the low version of DirectX, please download a new version. http://www.microsoft.com/japan/windows/directx/
- In the "Video Speed Up" mode, the tone quality was improved.
- In the "Video Speed Up" mode, the processing was sped up (lightened).
- In the "BigAudioBuffe" mode, the size of the buffer was made the half of the former version. (In a lot of tunes, it sounds better by the buffer of a moderate size.)
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

Neo4all RC2

fox68k has released a new version of the NeoGeo emulator for the Dreamcast:

This new version features the lastest FAME core and the new FAZE (Z80 emulator for DC). Basically, the emulation speed in some games have been improved, specially in Metal Slug 2 (i recommend to overclock the m68k and underclock the z80 for this game), Art of Fighting 2 and Pulstar among others.
