SSF 0.08 alpha R1 Released

A new version of this Sega Saturn emulator has been released, and as I don't know japanese I can't say what's new.

MAME GP32 2.3 Released

* Split module m68000 into three. Now we have m68000.fxe, m68K6502.fxe and m68KZ80.fxe. Games just using 68000 & 6502 CPUs are in m68K6502. ie. Atari games (Gauntlet, Xybots, Vindicators) and some Data East games (Karnov, Chelnov). Games that use 68000 & Z80 CPUs are now in m68KZ80.fxe (new Midway games). Existing 68000 games plus the new Twin Cobra are in the standard m68000.fxe.

* Added Atari game Vindicators.

* Added Taito game Twin Cobra and clones. Fully working with sound and at a reasonable speed. Very playable. Patched to make high score loading and saving functional.

* Added Irem Tropical Angel. Water-skiing, girl-in-bikini, time-trial racing game. I'd never seen the game before and I really only wanted to add it so that I could add the phrase "girl in bikini" to my webpage. :)

* Added Taito/Toaplan games. Zero Wing, Hellfire, Truxton, Vimana.

* Added Midway games. Satan's Hollow, Tron, Kozmic Kroozr, Domino, Two Tigers, Wacko, Tapper, Spy Hunter, Rampage, Destruction Derby, Timber, Max RPM, Sarge, Crater Raider, Powerdrive, Discs of Tron. These are large resolution gammes and all require the Screen Fit set to Skip. Some require Old Core and some require New Core. Discs of Tron needs fire buttons 9 and 10 setup to aim the throwing location of the discs and Kozmik Kroozr the same to rotate the gun (like Heavy Barrel and Midnight Resistance).

* Added Marine Boy. Not sure why, was playing River Patrol a bit which is really quite a nice game and saw that Orca also made this one and wanted to give it go. :-)

* Complete fix to Exerion (and clones). Added background graphics video handling from 0.37b2 and 0.57. Now works perfectly. Can use either 0.34 or latest romset (for this romset group only). The latest romset fixes some issues with sprite colors. One drawback with the new driver is that it's somewhat slower as two Z80s need to be emulated but it sure is pretty.

* Complete fix to Empire Strikes Back. No longer crashes 2 seconds into starting the game. This required fixes to the slapstic emulation.

* Fixes and optimizations to Xain d'Sleena, Double Dragon, Contra from GP2X version.

* Fixed Gorf to give priority to sound effects rather than samples. You can hear shots and other sound effects now (and the crappy speech!)

* Fixes and optimizations to Data East 16-bit Drivers from 0.37b2. Hippodrome and Fighting Fantasy now work perfectly.

* Fixes to Roadblaster. Not working on GP32. I'm sure this would work if it had just a little more RAM. Nice candidate for the GP2X.

* Optimizations to Hu6280 cpu core. Added some missing opcodes and corrected some bugs.

* Experimental Ghosts 'n Goblins using tilemap.c code. * Added Gamma Correction option. Settings are saved on a per game basis. Makes vector games like Asteroids more visible. Had to rearrange some of the options to make room: Old/New Core is merged with Triple buffer.

* Added Auto-fire option. Activate in the "Re-assign keys for this game" option. Toggle auto mode for controls Fire 1, 2 or 3 with right shoulder button.

* Added complete set of stretch modes for New and Old Core. This is so that the new Midway games work okay as these have resolutions of up to 512x480. Most of them run at good speed with sound.

* Added 44100hz sound mode. Works nicely for older games like Pacman and Mr Do, etc. Gives nice high quality sound.

* Added options for 66Mhz and 100Mhz underclock modes. Probably not super-useful. Canyon Bomber doesn't need much grunt. :-)

* Fixed the samples for Donkey Kong Jr and Space Invaders. New samples are required.

* Changed to DevKitARM R19. Thanks to DJWillis for the GP32 EABI SDK libraries!

Ootake 0.77 Released

- Processing related to interrupt was modeled on a real machine more. (The disorder of the manufacturer logo display of "Spriggan Mark2" was corrected. The problem in which the disorder of one frame existed on the screen immediately after the start of "Chou Aniki" was corrected. I think the operation timing of other software has approached a real machine, too.)
- The tone quality and the volume of "PSG noise sound" were modeled on a real machine.

MAME GP2X 3.2 Released

- Some improvements in the auto-frameskip. Some more fps.
- Default video sync option is now named "Video Sync Normal". New option "Video Sync Off" to make games run as fast as possible without any synchronization delay. Some more fps. This is mainly useful to play CPS-1 games (Street Fighter 2 runs very well now). Older games will run too fast.
- Some old optimizations in the CPS-1 renderer done by Chui (they were deactivated due to some incompatibilities, only useful in the default view: not scaled and not rotated video mode).
- GP2X Clock selector is now selectable from 66 to 300 MHz. Lower frequencies can be used to play oldest games saving batteries. Thx, Reiboul, for the suggestion.
- The menu now runs at 66 MHz, to save batteries.
- In pause mode, the clock frequency is lowered to 66 MHz, to save batteries.
- A new option to do not switch to TATE mode controls automatically when in TATE mode. See the readme.txt for the information to activate this function. Thx, colt chillin', for the suggestion.

gpSPDC - Gameboy Advance Emulator for Dreamcast

News from GPF:

-- Credits to Exophase for releasing such a fine emulator that I have merely ported it to run on the dreamcast using the included C core, does not use dynarec like the psp version.

please check the other readmes.

included is a scrambled binary, game_config.txt. requires a gba bios named gba_bios.bin(you can dump it yourself, see http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/GBA_BIOS)
place your gba roms on the root of the cd and burn everything to cdr, in what ever method you need to make a bootable cd.

Download from my site http://gpf.dcemu.co.uk/gpSPDC.shtml


PS: thanks to Ron of dciberia for his alpha testing and arranging it with others for testing.

Ootake 0.74 Released *updated to 0.76*

- Processing related to interrupt has been improved with the correction. (It approached a real machine. And the problem in which the disorder of one frame existed on the screen of clearing "Chou Aniki" was corrected.)

- When "Chou Aniki" was played, the bug that the screen falls into disorder (It is generated by v0.74) was corrected.

- The processing of the wave memory sound was corrected and improved. The tone quality was modeled on the atmosphere of a real machine.
- The reading processing of the joypad has been improved(speed-up and perhaps stability improvement).
- It dealt with the problem that the joypad might not be able to be set in some personal computer environments.
- When "TV Sports Basketball" was played, the problem that freezed before the player was selected (It is generated by v0.72) was corrected.
- "Open bram Folder" menu was added to "File" menu.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

clrmamepro 3.94 Released *updated to 3.94b*

• fixed: 3.94a broke the zip rebuilder...doh..not my day today

• fixed: rebuilding not archived files is broken

• added: 7z and RAR support (preliminary)
Currently only for rebuilder source files (no remove-rebuilt-source). Standard and solid LZMA 7z archives are supported but not split archives. Standard and solid RAR archives are supported but not split archives.

Before you ask:
No, currently I don't plan to add any compress-related support.

Be warned:
Rebuilding (solid) RAR and 7z archives with lots of included files is currently very slow. Since the Rebuilder is a file based operator, files are accessed randomly and such a random access takes long (because to work on the file, possible previously stored files in the archive have to be taken into account, too).

Guess you now see the advantages of the ZIP format. I may think about a way of optimizing this, but don't count on it.

• added: profiler 'reset profile' which resets the profile to 'new/not loaded' state
• misc: replaced some batchrun checkboxes with radiobuttons
• fixed: single-dat batchrun sometimes still used a previous multi-select
• fixed: dir2dat cancel button reacts sluggish
• fixed: rebuilder's additional check md5/sha1 failed on zip subfolders
• fixed: rebuilder's logfile used internal subfolder syntax instead of ""

bsnes 0.018 Released

I began working on bsnes on October 14th, 2004. I am releasing bsnes v0.018 today to celebrate bsnes' two year anniversary. Please note that this release incurs a ~15% speed reduction since v0.017, due to IRQ and S-SMP timing improvements.

• Fixed many critical errors in IRQ timing, should be *very* close to real hardware now
• Corrected major CPU timing bug involving CPU I/O condition 4
• Corrected bug with generic HiROM / LoROM memory maps
• Corrected bug involving HDMA indirect channel termination [anomie]
• OAM address reset now occurs when screen display is enabled, per recent research
• Readded full DMA, HDMA and HDMA init bus sync timing
• Added preliminary emulation of S-SMP $00f0 TEST register (6 of 8 bits are supported)
• Readded emulation of known timing differences between CPU revisions 1 and 2
• Config file can now control scanline-based PPU render position. This will only be needed until a proper dot-based PPU renderer is added
• Removed core debugging hooks so that debugging console can remain in public releases, it now functions as a tracer and memory editor
• Config file paths once again work correctly even if missing trailing backslash
• Video configuration simplified, sorry in advance to those who enjoyed the profile mode used before
• Added new configuration screen to control some emulation settings
• Replaced bsnes program icon with a much nicer one [FitzRoy]
• Optimized memory speed detection algorithm
• Preliminary UPS soft-patching support (do not use this yet!)
• Decreased memory usage and optimized generic libraries used by bsnes (/src/lib)
• Now caching OAM by one line, somewhat similar to a real SNES. Fixes Winter Gold, but causes line rendering error in Mega lo Mania
• Lots more, as usual

The following games have been fixed since v0.017 by the above bugfixes:
• Battle Blaze (J, U)
• Circuit USA (J)
• F1 Grand Prix (J)
• Funaki Masakatsu no Hybrid Wrestler - Tougi Denshou (J)
• Jumbo Ozaki no Hole in One (J)

gpSP 0.8 - Gameboy Advance Emulator for PSP

Exophase has released a new version of his awesome Gameboy Advance emulator for the PSP, for the few who dont know this is an emulator that plays a heck of alot of games at full speed.

Full details at the Official Release Thread

    Sunday, October 08, 2006

Refraction has been 'abit' busy! He's been 'in the zone' for the past few nights fixing VIF Unpacks, which decompress then send texture and vector data to the VUs.

Such fixes have a wide impact on games, some initial results below:
Clocktower 3 - SPS (Spikey Polygon Syndrome) fixed!
Grandia III - Random crash fixed!
Sega Rally 2006 - SPS fixed!
Super Monkey Ball - Graphics looking 'significantly' improved!
X-Men Legends - Graphics completely fixed!

Oh and for racing fans, there is one other game showing significant progress...

Hoxs64 Released

1) The Flexible Disk Image support has been upgraded to include the new FDI v2.1 format with CRC-32 error detection.
2) T64 read-only file support has been added. A T64 directory browser has been added to the Tape menu.
3) The SID resonance has been boosted.
4) The SID ADSR timings have been corrected to be cycle exact.
5) Fixed long standing incorrect implementation of the SID "Hard-Sync".
6) The SID "combined waveforms" now uses an 8bit wave table. The samples were taken from a Commodore C64C with serial number "HB5 527013 E" via the SID register $D41B.
7) Minor adjustment of SID sample holding behaviour for waveform $00.
8) An intermittent performance slow down issue with the SID filters has been fixed. The performance loss was a result excessive underflow with ultra small numbers known as de-normal floating point numbers.

Ootake 0.70 Released

- The processing command of the CD-ROM access was changed to it with high interchangeability for the personal computer that doesn't work.
- The processing of the timer interrupt was modeled on a real machine. (The sampling voice of "KLAX" was modeled on a real machine. The tempo of the tune of "Dragon EGG" was modeled on a real machine.)
- The display processing of sprite was modeled on real machine more. (When "YuuYuu Jinsei" was played, at the game end, the problem that the garbage of sprite had been displayed was solved.)
- When "Bloody Wolf" was played, the character display when the boss appears has been improved.
- Speed & Timing was modeled on a real machine more.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

atari++ 1.50 Released

- This release is mainly a bug-fix release that addresses a couple of issues especially on 64 bit systems:
- Fixed various erraneous varargs usages, mainly active during error handling, that caused crashes on AMD64 systems.
- Fixed reference to the linux joystick device. Newer kernels place this device at /dev/input/jsx instead of /dev/jsx, fixed.
- The H: device handler wildcard matcher now also finds files whose extender consists of blanks.
- The joystick handler contains now a workaround against some faulty implementations of the emu10k1 (SoundBlaster) gameport interface and got basically self-calibrating by using the second unused joystick axis.
- The DMA timing got reworked heavily. Thanks for that goes to Bennet (beipdev@yahoo.com) for providing me with more detailed information.
- The way how horizontal timing is organized changed heavily, and the timing constants for ANTIC and GTIA changed. Thus, new items in the menu will adjust the timing, and old ones got removed.
- The player/missile generator changed a bit and is now aware of some internal GTIA reaction times. Thanks for providing examples for this goes to Sebastian Pachuta (thanks again!)
- Some heavy bugs got fixed in the X11 interface that could have caused conflicts with at least some window managers because it re-opened windows to fast. These problems are now avoided by using a more careful logic.
- An out-of-bounds memory write in the mathpack emulation got fixed.
- Error handling in the complete menu and error requesters itself got improved.
- Errors from the X11 subsystem are now captured and reported in a more user-friendly way.
- The complete user menu creates now string-gadgets for numeric values whose numeric range is too large to be fine-tunable by a slider alone.
- Improved the speed of the X11 true-color output by enlarging the output/color buffer.

GameEx 6.90 Released

• Introducing the GameEx Setup Wizard!
  o A new innovation in gaming frontends - The GameEx setup wizard allows wizard style configuration, download, setup of GameEx, MAME, emulators and all your media needs.
  o This makes the setup of GameEx even easier than it ever it was.
  o Now the gaming frontend with the most complex backend and amount of features, is probably now the easiest to setup and use.
  o The GameEx setup wizard is entirely the work of Ben Baker (AKA Headkaze).
  o You should get this version of GameEx as soon as you can.
  o Please give feedback and ask questions about this new addition to GameEx on the GameEx forums.
• My thanks, gratitude and admiration go out to Ben.

• The rom filter setting now works with emulators setup with GoodMerge 7-zip. You don't need to set the rom filter as *.7z, if you do it will list all unzipped contents, same as *.* So you can set it to what to filter on the unzipped contents such as *.bin.
• Fixes CD-Player and CD-Ripper due to a missing file in the install
• Most recently played emu games shown at the top of the list now show database info at the top of the screen if available
• Create emulator snaps now works when emulators are setup as goodmerge 7-zips
• Fixes to auto updater which will take affect for future versions
• I recommend doing a manual download and install from the GameEx web site for this version if updating
