MacFCEU v0.9d7 released!

MacFCEU is a Mac OS X port of FCE Ultra. A Mac OS-specific port of FCE Ultra 0.98.13 - an NES/Famicon emulator. Classic and Carbon are supported exclusively.

MacFCEU 0.9d7

Features include: NSFe support, a PPU tile viewer, a memory viewer/editor,
customized speed control, access to registers and counters in the
command line interface debugger, customizable high-quality audio,
and near-100% accurate 2A03/7 CPU emulation.

Recent changes include:

Added PPU memory, OAM RAM, APU registers, and PRG banking to Memory View.
Added iNES mappers 178 and "Holy Diver" 78.3.
Added Dendy autodetect (merely "(R)" for Russian).
Non-taken branches always read operand.

Regions now specific models; added RGB model (e.g., Titler; missing #13 grays).
2A0x rev. A emulation performs LXA; others, ATX.
Added 401x port/DMC DMA collision; dma_4016_read test passes (FourScore off).
Corrected 4014. DMA emulation not 100% correct, but sprdma_and_dmc_dma passes.
Fixed DMC channel DMA timing and 4017 IRQ bugs.
Correct rectangle duty types, replacing threshold with a customizable table.
Fixed rectangle sweep and frequency reload.
User-optional open bus input port mask.
Last field now first field (as it should have been).
Added 2007 busy reads.
NES soft reset and proper boot sequence. Knight Rider and Ironsword run again.
Improved even/odd and NMI timing (3+1.5 CPU cycles).

Added PPU A12 hook (e.g., manual MMC counting).
Revised menus; more items in case function keys aren't available...
4014 odd cycle rounding and implied reads (more complete 2A0x).
Added Dendy region (untested).
Added per-pixel composite index disabling.
Fixed IRQ/BRK/NMI concurrency. More tests pass.
Precision timings precalculated on CPU subcycle level, instead of PPU cycles.
More cases for faster 2x window drawing; revised blitter.
Fixed input & input drawing; automatic Zapper for Duck Hunt works.
Correct PAL emphasis (BRG).

Fixed palette power-up table, read and render-off input masks.
Fixed VS palette selection and dip switch display.
Sunsoft FME-7 IRQs acknowledged only clearing bit 0 of 13. Some flickering, tho.
Added missing CHR bank line for AxROM/mapper 7 boards; fixes Battletoads, others.
Added mapper 28 (INL-ROM) and TxROM/SxROM variants. More board recognition.
Added NMI-ISR window for BRK/IRQs, plus NMI instruction delay.
Corrected CPU power & reset states.
Branch during pagecross triggers pending IRQ; passes "5-branch_delays_irq".
Corrected ARR op, SHX, SHY, ANE and BRK operations on a Visual6502 level.
Adjusted initial triangle position for better channel mixing.
Fixed a major path bug that caused the wrong file to be opened.

New best-quality sound: pulse and noise channels always clock even if silent.
square_timer_div2 renders correctly now, no hacks. The most accurate APU yet!
Minimum triangle frequency #3 (18643.4659 Hz).
Fixed the triangle length bug. "Test Cartridge" runs normally.

Disabled minimum boot time for 2000h writes that broke nes-saw, others.
Fixed field ordering after NMI/VBL fix; added last-field user setting.
Adjusted no-render pixel offsets. Added "latch" decay (for ppu_open_bus.nes).

N106 rate ratio numerator set to exact value at best rate.
No more default WAVE name; ROM file base name by default (if loaded).

Fixed PPU and APU frame issues - all Shay Green VBL/NMI and APU tests pass.
Added sound latency and (better) overrun/overflow handling
- no more sound break-up issue in the newer builds of Basilisk II or fast NSFs.
Added initial frame limit to NSFs for ROMs like "battletoads & double dragon".
NSF frame size (rate) in file now used.

Added inverse table remapping so all emphasis is handled (per line, however).
Added interlacing to 2x scaling. Disabled obsolete assembly code
- faster full-screen Millions of colors screen doubling as a result.
Playfield/screen-off now writes single pixels instead of 8s.
Fixed the standard 64-color palette and NTSC HSB constants.
Replaced the APU frame divider singular "half counter" with a table.
Added Memory View window.
Fixed sound-off speed issues by internally rendering silent samples at 4998 Hz.
MMC5 PCM now disabled at init. (ROM must clear $5010 bit #6 and #0.)
Fixed a mapper sound bug and some shell bugs/issues.
Added ability to adjust the DC filter (or turn it off).
Higher quality sound playback of high sample rates on most Macs.
High definition non-aliasing sound, "best" rate of 100-111.8608 KHz
- faster than FCE Ultra's filtered 96KHz "high quality."
17:4 fixed-point sample rates.

- See the Changelog for more details.

==== Minimal Requirements ====

System 7.0 or later (7.5.5+ recommended)
A 68020 or better - over 200 MHz for real time performance.
(Some carts and NSFs are more demanding.)
2800KB of RAM (Largest Unused Block), preset to 4.5 MB/3 MB

MAME 0.167 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.

Raine v0.64.10 released!

RAINE is an Emulator for Arcade games. Raine is a M68000 and M68020 arcade game emulator. Raine emulates some M68000 and M68020 arcade games and is mainly focused on Taito and Jaleco games hardware. It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. Raine can emulate many nice games now, and new games (previously unemulated) are appearing weekly.

Raine v0.64.10 Changeling:

- a surprising bug in the clipping of text in the gui which should not have been there
- the fix of mer-curious fireball, hopefully ! ;-)
- a fix for a crash during nam1975 demo because of a stupid fadeout effect !
- But also finally the video priorities for the gunbird driver have been added, plus a few sounds which couldn't be heard before are now played correctly (for almost all the games in this driver).
- neocd music now adapts to the sample rate chosen in sound options
- the fix for the bug about cawing reported just after releasing 0.64.9 !
- plus a few small fixes here and there not worth mentioning...

New server. Forum software upgraded

We've started migrating to a new server. To not cause any downtime we're already connecting to the new server's SQL server and I'll switch over the nameservers to the new server shortly, probably during the day.

Not a whole lot different with the new server hardware wise (8 core Xeon CPU, 32 GB RAM, 2 x 3 TB Enterprise SATA HDDs in RAID 1, 1 Gbit/s) but it's using the latest stable Debian (we used Debian 7.9 before) and a lot of updated software. So we're using Apache 2.4 instead of 2.2, MariaDB 10 instead of MySQL 5.5, PHP 5.6 instead of 5.4 etc. So there's some added stability, security and hopefully a bit speedier.

I've also upgraded to the latest vBulletin version (our forum software).

If you find any bugs, let me know

I present to you Cemu. World's first Wii U emulator capable of running and rendering commercial games!

Quick facts:

Can run encrypted Wii U images (WUD) and RPX/RPL files
Internal resolution is 1920x1080 (if supported by game)
For controller input see Here.

Contains basically no optimizations. Expect slow framerates and long load times.
Windows 7 or above (x64) (other platforms may be supported later)
Requires OpenGL 3.3
Tested on NVIDIA: Runs fine on most recent driver
Tested on Intel: Garbled output but runs if OpenGL version is supported
Untested on AMD

Version 1.0.0 (Win x64)

Can the controller be configured?
Not yet, it's locked to using the GamePad via keyboard. Proper controller support will come in a future release.

Can I run extracted games?
No, when launching a Wii U executable directly (.rpx) no external files are supported. If you want to run a game, it needs to be in raw dump format (WUD or ISO).

Is there supposed to be sound?
No, audio is not yet supported.

What's next?
The current plan is to release new updates at least every two weeks. A more detailed roadmap is in the works.
