WiiXL v0.1 released - Atari 800/XL/XE/5200 Emulator for Nintendo Wii

Razored is back with a new emulator for fans of Atari Classics and this time it supports the Atari 800/XL/XE/5200, heres the release info:


WiiXL v0.1 release README
--------------------------------------------

Ported by raz0red
[http://www.twitchasylum.com]

--------------------------------------------
What is WiiXL?
--------------------------------------------

WiiXL is a port of the Atari800 emulator 2.0.3 to the Wii.

The Atari800 emulator is a free and portable Atari 800/XL/XE/5200 emulator,
originally written by David Firth and now developed by the Atari800 Development
Team [http://atari800.sourceforge.net/].

--------------------------------------------
Current status
--------------------------------------------

WiiXL is definitely a work in progress. At this point much of the emulator's
extended functionality is only accessible via a USB keyboard. While most of the
common buttons/keys have been mapped to the Wii/GameCube controllers others
are unavailable (HELP, PAUSE, etc.). Also, if you attempt to use functionality
such as state loading/saving you will be prompted to enter a file name. Until
a virtual keyboard is implemented, this must be accomplished via USB keyboard.
I will also be adding user-defined key mappings in a subsequent release.

--------------------------------------------
Installation
--------------------------------------------

To install WiiXL, simply extract the zip file that this README was distributed
with directly to your SD card (retain the hierarchical structure exactly).

WiiXL includes the Atari 800/XL/XE BIOS, OS, and BASIC ROM files.

However, it does NOT include the Atari 5200 ROM file. If you want play Atari
5200 games you must obtain the ROM file, "5200.rom", and place it in the WiiXL
application directory (/apps/wiixl).

Disk and cartridge images should be placed in the software directory
(wiixl/software).

Dolphin Emu Playground

News via http://www.xtemu.com/forum/emulation-news-f108-dolphin-emu-playground-opened-t1580.html

The playground team have started a new project to emulate dolphin the gamecube and wii emulator for windows:

Playground version of dolphin-emu (http://www.dolphin-emu.com)

This is not an official Dolphin-Emu project, this is a fork. This is too try crazy things with Dolphin, understand its code, and add more dev GUI to it. Also to document the Gamecube system from this emulator and Dolphin's code.
http://code.google.com/p/dolphin-emu-playground/
 

PCSX2 PG and official PCSX2 teams merge!

From the PCSX2 site:

This has been considered for a long time and after the two teams met,we have come to a merge The new talented coders have already done great work on the emulator and will now be joined by the old PCSX2 team for an even better coding team!

This means that:

1)The PCSX2 - Playground project will be renamed and will from now on be the official PCSX2 project

2)The whole PCSX2 - Playground team will be added to the existing official PCSX2 team

3)The next PCSX2 release will replace the 0.9.4 version and the 0.9.5 beta which we provide will be replaced by new betas after the new release.This means that the current PCSX2-Playground build will not be provided as a download (since it will actually be an older version of the released PCSX2)

4)Our forum structure will be re-organized to match these changes after a new release has been made

On other news,we now host the PCSX2 Mac port made by Zendr0n in our forums here.Head there for the latest compiled build and try it on your Mac!

Many plugin updates,as usual grab them from our downloads section!
