RockNES v5.54 released!

RockNES is a Nintendo (NES) emulator that supports total PPU emulation, total intelligent emulation (including VRCVI intelligent, used by some Japanese games), battery backed RAM, Famicom DiskSystem, VS Unisystem, and some 70 different mappers. In gain, RockNES includes lots of different video modes, as substantially as the ability to loading and economise your back at any stage. You can flush record movies of gameplay.

RockNES v5.54 Changelog:

MAME v0.190 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. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

What's news in MAME:

Mednafen v0.9.48 released!

Mednafen is a multi-game-system emulator, for various platforms, including emulation of the following systems:Atari Lynx,Famicom,GameBoy (Color),GameBoy Advance,Neo Geo Pocket (Color), NES(both NTSC and PAL),PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16 (CD) and SuperGrafx,PC-FX,WonderSwan (Color).

Mednafen v0.9.48 Changelog:


* SS: Fixed graphics corruption in the intro of "Batman Forever".
* SS: Fixed hang in "Jung Rhythm" when trying to retry a failed stage.
* SS: Fixed crash in "Tenchi Muyou! Ryououki Gokuraku" when it tries to play an opening movie.
* SS: Fixed messed-up colors in "Discworld 2".
* SS: Fixed hang when trying to resume a suspended game in "Tactics Ogre".
* SS: Fixed the periodic loud popping noise during FMV playback in "Grandia"(an emulation bugfix; sound may still pop/click if you have a slower CPU of course).
* SS: Added a hack/kludge to allow bypassing of data cache on reads(such that the timing benefits of partial cache emulation are preserved, without cache coherency problems that partial cache emulation sometimes leads to with poorly programmed games), and added an internal database to enable it on select games; fixes graphical glitches and/or hangs in "Area 51 (USA and Europe)", "Clockwork Knight 2 (USA)", "DeJig - Lassen Art Collection", "Father Christmas", "Golden Axe The Duel", "Sega Saturn Choice Cuts", "Spot Goes to Hollywood (USA and Japan)", "Street Fighter Zero", "Street Fighter Zero 3", "Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo", and "Virtual Volleyball".
* SS: Full cache emulation is now enabled for "Whizz"(by using an internal database), to resolve(or at least reduce) quasi-random hanging issues during startup.

Ootake v2.84 released!

Ootake is a PC Engine emulator for Windows. Ootake is the most frequently updated PC Engine emulator available for windows, and Ootake is also one of the more complete. Also, Ootake is FREE unlike Magic Engine.

Ootake v2.84 changelog:



- When "CD-ROM disc is switched" while playing CD games with CD-ROM drive,
the game you switched automatically will be activated. Also, if you take
out the CD-ROM during the game, the game will be paused automatically for
safety.
- "CD access status (seek & read)" is displayed when playing a CD-ROM game.
Currently it is only in window mode, it is displayed on the right side of
"Ootake" at the upper left of the window. If you are using a PC with low
power, or unnecessary, uncheck "View CD Read Access" menu on "CD-ROM"
menu (the third row from the top).
- The play process of ADPCM sound approached the real machine. In
"Cobra II", at the desert town motorcycle ride scene, the stopped problem
(occurred from v2.83) was solved.
- The play operation of ADPCM sound approached the real machine. In
"Seisenshi Denshou", the problem that voice audio was interrupted was
solved.
- In "Ys book I&II (U)", when entering the Tower of Darm, with environment
where CD-ROM access is fast, the problem that Gorban's voice sound was
interrupted was solved.
- When "Tokimeki Memorial" is started, the decision button of the mouse is
automatically set to left click. If you do not need this, uncheck the
"Setting-> Improve-> Auto Set Left Click (Tokimeki Memorial)" menu.
- When "1552 Tenka Tairan" is started, mouse mode is set automatically.
(omitting the SELECT button press on the start screen) If you do not
need this, uncheck the "Setting-> Improve-> Auto Use Mouse (1552 Tenka
Tairan)" menu.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

MAME v0.189 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. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

What's news in MAME:
