PCSX2 0.9.2 WIP News


In the Good News for 0.9.2! post, made on 16th August, Refraction hinted at progress being made with the audio side of PCSX2, as many of you will of guessed - the clip posted was from Final Fantasy X, more importantly from an FMV, which in all previous versions of PCSX2 had no audio (99% of the time).

To elaborate on this further; GiGaHeRz and Saqib have fixed large portions of ADMA support, allowing for all videos to have audio and many games now have full background music!

Alittle work has been done by Saqib today which allows for audio and video sync when recording, so I can demonstrate with a small video (xVid) - the results of their hardwork.

Unfortunately, the last release had some compression support broken, its fixed now as always, binaries are in the ZSNES section
• ALL: Fixed case sensitive issue in isextension(). [Nach]

September 28th:
• ALL: Added IPS multipatch support. Goes from IPS, IP0, IP1, IP2, ..., IP9. Also made IPS extension code use new zpath functions. Let me know if any IPS abilities are problematic. [Nach]
• ALL: Fixed issues with BIOS/Base carts. [Nach]
• ALL: Fixed typo causing many games to freeze. [pagefault]
• ALL: Auto Savestate Load/Save is really fixed. I'm not sure how this bug wasn't reported before... [Deathlike]
• ALL: Battletoads intro fix [pagefault]
• ALL: Changed the default keys for Player 2 to saner defaults. [Deathlike]
• ALL: Expanded savestate increment option to support 100 savestates. Also added AutoIncSaveSlotBlock option for legacy behavior in individual blocks (0-9,11-19,etc). [Deathlike]
• ALL: Fixed a crash if the internal name check fails for SPC7110 games. [Jonas Quinn]
• ALL: Fixed all remaining bugs with the SPC7110. SPL4 and MDH are working correctly, now. [Jonas Quinn]
• ALL: Fixed corrupted sound after loading a state. Savestates created with the latest WIP will have corrupted sound after loading it starting with this revision. [Jonas Quinn]
• ALL: Fixed savestate increment/decrement keys. This should be the last of the require fixes. Also fixed something for VS compilers. [Deathlike]
• ALL: Fixed some bugs that were discovered with Valgrind. [Nach]
• ALL: Fixed Start at Latest Save option. [Deathlike], [Nach]
• ALL: Force4:3Ratio should be applied after scanlines. [Deathlike]

• ALL: Improved output of state messages. [Nach]
• DOS: Fixed ROM loading of the cmdline for DOS when a VESA2 mode is selected. [Jonas Quinn]
• DOS: Removed the NTSC filter from the DOS port for now. This lowers the RAM usage so it is possible to play Super Mario World on my old 486 with 16 MB of RAM again. [Jonas Quinn]
• GUI: Added "Show Clock Box" and "Show Rom Info On Load" to the Options menu. Also fixed display of the shortcut key for the "Enable Clock" option. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Change name of the clock option due to it being a misnomer. [Deathlike]

• GUI: Screen must be refreshed when Triple Buffering/Vsync is toggled. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Some GUI tweaks for better use of existing space. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Transitioning from Auto Frame Skip to Frame Skip (and vice versa) will now not have the display+buttons move when toggled. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Since Jonas got screen refreshing in, displaying the slot level has become a reality! [Deathlike]
• GUI: Updated list of supported formats. [Deathlike]
• MSV: I don't know why I'm even commiting this, but apparently if you don't use the official method to compile MSVC, it may act stupidly without this fix. [Nach]
• MSV: Fixed a VS compiler problem because it sucks. [Deathlike]
• OSX: Mac OS X fixes and cleanup for ManyMouse. Still issues though with two-finger-scroll trackpad. [Nach]
• PSR: Added in memory PSR backup and restore too. [Nach]
• PSR: Added PSR_NOUPDATE define so reads don't update format with a write. [Nach]

• PSR: Output of C file doesn't start till entire PSR is parsed. Now PSR_COMPRESSED can be defined within the PSR file on a per PSR basis easily. [Nach]
• PSR: PSR RAM usage lessened. Packed code only outputted when needed (also fixes warnings). Reading and Writing now uses function pointers for easy compressed support later. [Nach]
• PSR: Some cleanup. Added GZip support to PSR. [Nach]
• PSR: Fixed a bug with packed usage detection. [Nach]
• PSR: Added variable dependancy support. [Nach]
• PSR: Documented the undocumented compiling parameters. [Nach]
• SDL: Fixed the case in the SDL port where the up+down numpad keys do not behave as intended. [Deathlike]
• SDL: Removed a non-working SDL specific mode. You probably will need to edit your cfg file if you were previously using an OpenGL mode. [Deathlike]
• SDL: Fixed bug when trackballs are present, also cleaned up joystick code a bit. [spoon0042]
• SRC: Anything that clears vidbufferofsb should be consistent. [Deathlike]

• WIN: Added a comment about the minimum res required by Keep4_3Ratio for the Windows port. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Added mouse sensitivity for Windows port. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Changed "High Priority Mode" to "Use A Higher Priority" and Above Normal Priority is used on NT OSes. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Changed default video mode the Windows port uses due to sanity reasons. Also, a check was added to prevent the black screen (and maybe double vision) issue. A message box will now pop up to tell you what options you have. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Disable Screensaver Option now disables all annoying power management stuff. [Deathlike]

blueMSX 2.6 Released


blueMSX is the first freeware emulator to support the Game Reader, a device that allows an user to play real MSX cartridges on a PC. blueMSX is using Vincent van Dam's API to access the Game Reader device. The support requires the Game Reader hardware and official drivers that can be purchased from Sunrise or MSX-ASSOCIATION.

Note that the support is very different from MSXPLAYer and some cartridges will not run as well as with the MSXPLAYer.

Another surprising new feature is support for ObsoNET, the only Ethernet solution for MSX, developed by Daniel Berdugo. Read carefully the manual as this support requires to install first WinPCap, the Windows Packet Capture Library.

After many requests from gamers, the emulator comes finally with input event logging, replay and AVI rendering. Conceived as enhanced save states, this great feature gives to the user a more complete MSX experience !

blueMSX 2.6 has also support for the Sega SC-3000 and SF-7000 computers, that were very close to the MSX1 system without being compatible.

Which are the other changes ?

- Added support for low resolution in fullscreen mode
- Added SVI printer support
- Added selection of video in grabber
- Added support for Sony Playball roms with digitized speech
- Added support for MegaCart(R), a new type of Coleco rom
- Added dutch version of the user manual
- Fixed crash caused by video grabber card
- Made video grabber unload if not selected (in 2.5, the grabber was always enabled)
- Fixed NMI bug in z80 emulation causing some Coleco games to fail running
- Fixed detection of Sega rom types in menus and dialogs
- Fixed bug in screen 10 vertical border color
- Fixed header of PNG screenshots
- Fixed bug in the S1985 device that caused emulator to crash when debugger was open.
- Fixed the joystick button triggers for the SVI joystick
- Fixed bug in the I8250 UART used in SVI-328 that caused emulator to hang
- Fixed SVI-328 PPI bug
- Fixed default rom mapper handling
- Changed default width of the memory window in the debugger to 16 bytes
- Fixed some printer emulation bugs
- Fixed save state in R-Type rom mapper so it doesn't crash the emulator
- VDP timers are now saved correctly in save states
- Updated MSX Printer emulation to include a static font
- Fixed screen 6 sprites
- Fixed CC sprite bug that made CC sprites visible even if no non CC sprite was present
- Fixed sprite collision index in Status Register 0 for screen 5-8 sprites
- Fixed bug related to CC sprites (having the attribute "Mix color with sprite that has next higher priority")

gpSP 0.7 (GameplaySP V0.7)

Exophase has released 2 new versions of his excellent GBA Emulator for the PSP, heres the release info from the readme file:


v0.7 - (beta than ever)

# Fixed a dynarec bug involving flags generating functions in contiguous conditional blocks. Fixes music in Super Mario Advance 2-4.
# Fixed a dynarec bug where Thumb mov imm instructions wouldn't set flags. Fixes Zelda: Minish Cap, Megaman Battle Network, probably others. Comes at a slight speed cost.
# Fixed a MIPS dynarec bug where some delay slots might not get filled rarely, causing chaos. Don't know if it improves any games.
# Improved self-modifying code detection. Makes Golden Sun, Golden Sun 2, and Madden 2007 sorta work but excrutiatingly slowly. Looking for a game-specific workaround for this - if you want to play these games you'll have to wait for now :(
# Fixed a bug causing the interrupt disable flag to go down when SWIs are entered, causing crashes/resets. Fixes Super Mario Advance 2-4.
# Fixed menu crashing when strings with certain characters are printed (for instance going to the menu after loading the BIOS)
# Accidentally forgot to render win0 + win1 + objwin when all active at the same time, many weeks ago. Added that, should fix some parts in games that had frozen screens.
# Fixed some issues with gpsp.cfg needing to be present and corrupting, hopefully. At the very least sanity checks are performed on the config file.
# Made it so assigning the frameskip button to something besides triangle actually worked as expected.
# Fixed ability to restart current game if nothing is loaded (ie, crash)
# Added interrupt on cpsr modification support to the dynarec (fixes backgrounds in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance)
# Added open addressing for ldm/stm instructions (fixes Super Mario Advance 3)
# Improved cycle accuracy a little. Don't know of anything this fixes, but games with idle loops will run a little better w/o idle loop elimination (but should still be added when possible)
# Fixed some bugs causing sound to play sometimes when it shouldn't.
@ Added dead flag elimination for Thumb code. May possibly have noticeable performance increases (Thumb emited coded size can have a reduction of 20% or more)
@ Added code generation for divide SWI. May have a small speed increase in some games.
+ Added analog nub support (special thanks to psp298 for the code)
+ Added fractional frameskip. Go below 0 to get them. A frameskip of 1/2 for instance means render 2 out of every 3 frames, 2/3 means render 3 out of every 4 frames, etc. Possibly useful for games that are not quite fast enough at fs0 but fullspeed at fs1...

One version is faster and the other more compatible, choose which one works for you.

- "Play" -> used to play games with default settings
- "Play (Custom)" use to play custom command lines and zinc custom options
• changed: Feature "Refresh Games" renamed to "Scan Games"
It is used to set games status of available/missing avoiding the need for create new games list
• changed: Description of the following image types cannot be changed anymore, and they support images in .png format only (indexes 0, 1, 7, 8):
- Title Snapshots
- Game Snapshots
- Select
- Versus
Located in preferences screen, "General" / "Images" / "Type Settings" tab
• changed: MAME ROMs folders selection (MAME settings screen). From now on, you must add all your MAME roms, instead of just the top folder ... bye bye recursive scan
• removed: Batch files feature
• removed: MAME settings (Legacy), for all MAME based emulators. From now on, only latest MAME builds will be officially supported
• removed: Extra Command Line Parameter feature
• removed: Detection of .exe type from the frontend's core (too buggy)
• removed: Game info label from preview image
• added: Images preview popup menu item "Image Details"
Info displayed:
- Filename with full path

- Zip filename with full path (if image is zipped)
- Resolution
- Screen resolution (screen aspect ratio)
• added: Games popup menu setting: "Return to Window Mode". Option visible only when in full screen mode

-> Description
-> Manufacturer
-> Category
-> Game Name
-> Parent Game Name
-> Driver Name
-> System Name
- "Clear Search List" checkbox, used with "Begin Search" button. Disabling this setting, the previous searches are not lost
- "Delete Duplicates" button. It remove all game entries from the search list that are already added in the protected list (game name + clone name + system)
- "Clear" in keywords frame to empty the keywords list
.added: Custom command line is back
More complete, easier and intuitive to use. You can create cmdline for games, game drivers and systems. Set or delete .ini files in games popup menu, "Custom Options" / "Command Line" menu item. To execute, use "Play (Custom)" / "Command Line" (games popup menu)

More info:
- this feature can be used with ".exe" / ".bat" files ...do not add quotes in the filename, it will added by the frontend
- you cannot set dynamic variables in "additional parameters" like %1 or %s, use "parameters" for that ...but you can add as many extra parameters as you like
- use the "Field With Quotes" checkbox to surround the parameter with quotes. this is useful for emulators that require game filename between quotes
- you can also define a parameter "prefix" and a "sufix" for those emulators that require a specific command before and/or after the actual data ...prefix and sufix cannot be surrounded with quotes

- The system message is displayed on the screen. When the check is put in "Hide Message" of the "Setting" menu, the message is made non-display.
- "Opening and shutting of the menu" and "Release of PAUSE" can be done by mouse's "Left-click".
- Interrupt processing was modeled on a real machine more. (When "Obocchama-kun" was played, the problem that the screen falls into disorder was solved. BGM of "Fire ProWrestling" was modeled on a real machine.)
- When "Popful Mail" was played, The display of opening demo & start demo was modeled on a real machine. - Still, after it begins to play a game, it freezes it in the visual scene of the third times. It is a problem that wants to be solved in the future.
- Speed & Timing was modeled on a real machine more.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

Mednafen 0.6.5 Released


• PCE: Made a small optimization to HuC6280 emulation by caching the CPU speed shift-left cycle count adjust value.
• Removed an old kludge for Win32 that worked around an SDL problem in which the window position would be off-screen when switching from fullscreen to windowed mode, as I think the problem is fixed in SDL 1.2.10.
• Reworked the signal handling code to be included if HAVE_SIGNAL is defined instead of if WIN32 is not defined, and added #ifdefs around each possible signal(as some platforms don't provide #define's for some signals).
• PCE: Added setting "pce.cdspeed" to set a CD-ROM data transfer speed multiplier. PLEASE READ THE DOCUMENTATION FOR CAVEATS.
• PCE: Fixed CD-DA and ADPCM fadeout speed when setting the "pce.ocmultiplier" setting to a value other than 1.
• Cleaned up the multi-res blitting code in drivers/video.cpp to not cause crazy compiler warnings(and not be crazy in general!).
• PCE: Fixed the ADPCM playback rate formula(the result was off by about 0.27%), thanks to Charles MacDonald for detailed information.
• Began work on implementing several OpenGL pixel shaders, which will be finished in a later release.
• Mednafen no longers directly links to the OpenGL library, instead it uses SDL's OpenGL library loading and function address functions.
• Reverted back to pow() and cos() from powl() and cosl() in Blip_Buffer.cpp, due to some platforms not having long double types per se, and adjusted the code activated by setting "pce.adpcmlp" to call Blip_Synth::treble_eq() with a "treble" value of a lower magnitude, which might result in a slight difference in the ADPCM frequency spectrum produced when "pce.adpcmlp" is enabled.
• Fixed "Value increased" cheat search method(it was acting the same as "Value decreased", oops -_-).
• Changed the usage of fix-sized filename component arrays in general.cpp with string objects.
• MDFN_printf() and MDFN_PrintError() now use trio_vaprintf() instead of trio_vsnprintf().
• NES: Added setting "nes.n106bs", which when set, will enable less-accurate, but better sounding, Namco 106(mapper 19) sound emulation.
• NES: Fixed save states for mapper 69 games(mirroring and prg bank setup wasn't being saved and restored).
• NES: Added support for multiple expansion sound chips used simultaneously in NSFs, including limiting the address space they will respond to when multiple expansion sound chips are used(to prevent collisions between VRC6 and VRC7's address space, for example).
• PCE: Fixed CD-DA playback speed when setting the "pce.ocmultiplier" setting to a value other than 1.
• NGP: Changed the default full-screen video settings, so that the scaled image size is no longer larger than the display area(oops -_-).
• NES: Added support for UNIF board "UNL-603-5052"(thanks to CaH4e3).
• NES: Fixed mapper 115, "Thunderbolt 2" now works(thanks to CaH4e3).
• NGP: Sound emulation now respects global sound volume setting "soundvol".
• NGP: Added missing setting "ngp.forcemono".
• PCE: Physical CDROM device names will now be printed on Mac OS/X on startup again. Physical CDROM access seems to work, but the DarwinPorts libcdio 0.75 package appears to be horribly broken, so please remove it and install libcdio 0.77(or higher) from its source code.
• NGP: Fixed a few major problems with NGP emulation on big-endian platforms(such as PPC OS/X).

• TOL: Fixed cpuinfo output to also show the vendor_id. [Jonas Quinn]
• TOL: Passing a parameter to archopt now prints out cpuinfo. [Nach]
• TOL: Now by popular demand, the Macro Unroller - macroll has been released. [Nach]
• TOL: Feel the sting of my macro aware extra EXTSYM detector. Now recursive descent. Way way way faster. Handles nested macros with parameters. Properly identifies EXTSYMs that are used in Macros in which the Macros themselves are not used. [Nach]
• SRC: Fixed a jump to not disable ENV when it shouldn't. [Jonas Quinn]
• SRC: Added JMA=no option. [Nach]
• SRC: Removed duplicare vars of the vcache series. [Deathlike]

• SRC: Added bits 64 if compiling with __AMD64__ defined. [Nach]
• SRC: AC_PREREQ(2.50) for the benefit of Debian's autoconf2.13 package. [SamB]
• SRC: Some new rules, now modifying Makefile.in/configure.in won't require a manual autogen.sh run - make will work it out. Some name changes along the way. [grinvader]
• SRC: Cleanup and minor fixes. [pagefault, Deathlike, grinvader, Jonas Quinn, Nach]
• SRC: Using SDL_GL_SWAP_CONTROL if SDL >= 1.2.10 [Nach]
