4DO 1.2.0.1

4DO is no longer titled as "beta". The emulation is in a good state, and the primary features of the emulator have been stable for quite a while.

It’s been a overall a quick revival since the release of the FreeDO source code, and 4DO now provides 3DO fans with a clean, functional emulator.

4DO was able to inherit many great features from FreeDO: high-definition rendering, clock speed adjustments, and the impressive emulation accuracy! The FreeDO user interface was not open-sourced, but the resulting rewrite for 4DO was an overall benefit. The development of 4DO has introduced several unique features as well:

+ Intuitive controller setup, native joystick support, and support for up to 6 players
+ Game identification system
+ Easy-to-use quick save/load system
+ Game compatibility fixes (mainly through the efforts of Viktor!)
+ Support for 6 languages




Latest improvements:

+ Bios 2 Support Added. Viktor determined how to added support for the second bios slot, used in Japanese hardware for the Kanji font. This should enable support for several Japanese games that require it (one example being Blue Forest Monogatari). Awesome!
+ Daedalus Encounter timing fix added. This should alleviate many of the freezes encountered.
+ Screenshot Feature added. Press F3 to take screenshots to a "Screenshots" subfolder.
+ Russian translation fixes and improvements from both Viktor and Sedabi.

4DO is an open-source, low-level emulator based on the FreeDO source code.



Latest improvements:

Additionally, Viktor has added some freeze fixes to resolve several of the freezes seen when playing videos! As a result, the game is now quite playable! Please be aware that I have still run into a couple freezes during the videos a couple times. If you happen to find a reproducible case, please leave a comment!

- Immercenary
- Scramble Cobra
- Twisted (EU version)

4DO 1.1.5.1 Beta

4DO is an open-source, low-level emulator based on the FreeDO source code.



Latest improvements:

+ Fix for Phoenix 3 hanging in load screens - A continuation of the changes to move 4DO to the new timing behavior. It will not always work (it works about 50/50, in my experience), so you will have to save beforehand and try skipping the cutscenes at differing times. But the game is otherwise quite playable!
+ Once-a-second stuttering/lag spike resolved - It was discovered that some systems were slower to perform than others in polling for input devices, which was causing a noticeable delay in emulation every second. This is now resolved.
