RxNES 1.60 released

RxNES has released yet another update, this one is quite a big update:


- MAJOR UPDATE!!
- Added "Combined Sprites"!! - Press the "Pause" key on your keyboard. Click the sprites you want to be dumped/recognized/replaced as
ONE larger .png. When you click them, they will turn green to indicate they will be dumped. When you have all the little sprite tiles
selected that you want combined, Press "Spacebar"! A preview of the larger sprite you just dumped will be displayed in the center of
the screen until you click the mouse again. The Large Combined Texture will be dumped to that games "~MyPackage-" folder along with
a .cfg file. This new graphic RELIES on the .cfg so keep them together. Any editing in the cfg is unnessesary, however I guess you can
edit the physical size of the graphic in the game by editing its Width / Height values in there..
Aside from that, you shouldn't be editing anything in the .cfg. You can Rename the .cfg and .png to whatever you like, but make certain
they match each other. You can increase the resolution of the .png up to 4096x4096 but that 1 graphic would probably not fit your monitor
resolution. While selecting tiles to dump as one, right clicking clears everything selected.
Sorry I just got all this working smooth after 3 days of solid programming, so there is no example supplied. I hope forum mod lyonhrt
can make up an example to be released in the next update. :) THX lyonhrt!
- Large Combined Sprites cannot be replaced with 3D Models yet in this version, but will be in the next short while.


i will certainly be looking at starting a pack for this emulator this weekend, so check the rxnes forums for exclusive first look, and of course check out my other work on http://www.emutalk.net/

RxNES 1.567

http://www.rxnes.com/ has had a nice big update today, with updates progressing daily
Here's whats new from the readme


- Fixed : RxNES now dumps tiles at their original resolution. (8x8 or 8x16 pixels.)
Previously for your convienence 8x8 tiles were upscaled to 4x at 32x32. This ment you could open them in an image editor and add sub-pixels
easily. It also made them easier to see in Windows Explorer and Image Preview. However.. This lost the ability to interpolate or upscale
the tiles with a batch image scaler, such as ReShade. Now not only are the exported tiles smaller (1/4 file size I guess), they can
for example be added to Recording files and you won't need to have played the game with tile dumping on, to the game point in the Recording
to be able to watch it. This will be added soon in a coming update. I am not sure if I should package the tiles with the recording,
upload/download them from the server, or both. I will probably go with both just to be sure the Recordings are playable everywhere, and a
known tile database is availiable for those who want to work on tiles they haven't reached yet in-game. Exported tiles are now only 128 bytes
each! (@ 8x8). Or, 8 or 9 tiles per KB! So I will be uploading whichever are missing from the server to a central database collection of all
the tiles everyone has dumped after logging in. The "Box Boy" collection is a total of 46 KB at this point on my computer.
This .txt document is around 10 KB (or 76 tiles). An ancient 8 inch floppy disk from the 1980's holds 800 KB. So you will also be able to
store your dumped .png collections on 8 inch Floppy :) and upload/download bandwidth should not be any issue.
- Fixed : No Keyboard Control without any Wiimotes. ( Problem was a misplaced } ).
- Added : New Example 3D Model in the Enhancements folder!
Created a perfect 1 tile example 3D model. Spent hours re-programming it's alignment to be sub-pixel perfect.
Please use this as THE template for making 3D models! "DEMOModel" included in .max, .blend, and .obj.
If you use 3DS Max use the .max file, not the .obj. The .max has non-default scene scale and is setup to scale properly.
Also, If using 3DS Max, Export to .obj with Scale = 0.1, Flip Y/Z Axis (Poser like) turned ON (Defaults to OFF!).
- Still Broken? : Playback of Recordings. (Code hasn't been altered yet to handle NEW Standard / Default 2D Tile.)
- Added : 2-Player Wiimote Controls! ( Autodetects 2 Wiimotes [Player 1 & 2] Bluetooth) If you have only 1 Wiimote, Player 2 uses Keyboard.
Hold 1 & 2 on wiimote and pair in windows bluetooth pairing, it will be autodetected.
- Fixed Z,X to be B,A instead of A,B.

RxNES 1.555

http://www.rxnes.com/[/url] has had a notable interesting change in its current release, heres what the readme says:


- Added : Wiimote Controls! ( Autodetects 1 Wiimote [Player 1] Bluetooth) Up to 4 Players coming soon, I only have 1 wiimote ATM.
Hold 1 & 2 on wiimote and pair in windows bluetooth pairing, it will be autodetected. (On next start.)
- Fixed Z,X to be B,A instead of A,B.


Nice to have that support built in for wiimotes, and continues to expand on its features.

rxnes 1.53 released

http://www.rxnes.com/ has posted an update on its customisable emulator with a fix now at version 1.53


- Fixed # Key not running Box Art Downloader. Changed it to the 3 Key for now.
- Uncommented code for 3D Models in Recording Playback. The bug was elsewhere. (I think.)

- Rom Browser with Box Art! Toggles with "Page Up" & "Page Down". Arrow Keys to select your Rom.
- Box Art Batch Downloader. Hold "Shift" and press #. (Can take 10 Seconds to 20 Minutes depending on how many Roms / what art is missing.)
Currently the Server has Art for 600+ Games! (Games are mostly Auto-detected, regardless of file name.)
- No 3D models in Replay Recordings (Needs further testing and tweaking...)

RxNES

Some days i like to check out whats new in the emulation world, and i just happen to come across this little gem, called RxNES, which is a NES emulator, but this time with a little twist, it has customization.

Here's a snipit from the offical site


When the NES draws the original graphics,
check if there are modern graphics which can be put in their place!
RxNES is basically 80 lines of code added to an Open Source NES Emulator within the Unity3D Engine. Unity3D is not required, you can upgrade games with the Standalone Build.
The added code "hashes" the content of the on-screen "Tiles" and comes up with a name for each tile, it then checks a special "Enhancemennts" folder to see if a new 3D Model (.OBJ) and or Texture are availiable to render on top of the old one.


For more info and support their forums are here.

Yanese Version 0.80

yanese - Yet Another NES Emulator
has been updated to version 0.80 the main new feature is a preview window




Rom UI: Now there is a "preview" window that shows the rom image preview. This is only available in window 2x and above. Everytime you close a rom the last image is captured and is used as the preview. Of course this works only if you load the rom from the "ROMS Library".
NMI: Changed NMI behavior. Games like 1942 run well.
APU: There was a problem in emulated sound that games like 1942 kept sounding. Fixed

HalfNES 0.048

HalfNES is an open-source emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System, written in Java. Currently, it only runs as a standalone Java SE application and supports: joystick through DirectInput and xInput, SRAM save, accurate sound core, full screen display and cross-platform portability.



Chere's changelog for latest builds:

*** 0.048 (6/5/2012) ***
You can now change all options without having to restart the emulator. Also changed the set of values used for the VRC7 registers and did some code cleanups in various places. Significant rewrite is needed to improve basic timing accuracy some time soon.

*** 0.047 (5/12/2012) ***
VRC7 channel volumes and modulation are correct now. Still not quite like the real thing because envelopes are based off info from the data sheet and not the actual implementation. (Plus, no one has ever read the presets for the built in instruments from the VRC7; I've tested several sets of approximations.)

MoarNES 0.12.2.22

MoarNES is an emulator for the classic Nintendo Entertainment System video game console. It is relatively new, and currently still in alpha. It is being continuously worked on an improved with the goal of being among the best NES emulators available. Is it there yet? Not quite, but it's a very useable and fairly compatible emulator still at this point. It is written from scratch in C, with no code taken from existing NES emulators.



Since there's no change-log, here is what author said about alpha release

Although a fairly basic emulator right now, I am working on implementing several major new features soon. For example, netplay support and re-recording for tool-assisted speed run creation.

I am also looking into the possibility of an extended debugger, an integrated assembler, and a tile editor to assist in developing homebrew NES software.

HalfNES v0.036

News via http://www.emucr.com/2011/06/halfnes-v0036.html

HalfNES v0.036 is released. HalfNES is an open-source emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System, written in Java. Currently, it only runs as a standalone Java SE application.

Current Features:
-Now cropping off the top and bottom 8 pixels of the video output, since these are
not visible on most TVs and a lot of games render garbage on those lines.
-Added volume slider to options dialog (and rewrote the sound output code as well.)
-Fixed a lot of sound bugs. Crystalis, Zombie Nation, A Boy And His Blob etc. all sound right now.
-Fixed Twin Cobra

HalfNES v0.036 Changelog:


-Added Mapper 9 (Punch-Out!!)
-Fixed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (leftover bug from last PPU rewrite)
-Fixed Jurassic Park (same problem as Twin Cobra, changed the code so both worked)
-Increased audio volume
-Added greyscale and color emphasis to PPU
(Noah's Ark is maybe the only game this is visible in)
-Fixed off-by-one error causing scanline 261 to be run twice
(fixed some timing issues, maybe caused a few more)
-Completely changed the way the PPU renders sprites - broke some games (Guardian Legend and
some Codemasters games that never looked right anyway) but fixed screen shaking and
single scanline glitches in a LOT of games.
-Also, sprite flicker is back from the old days.

Fceux SVN r2206

News via http://www.emucr.com/2011/06/fceux-svn-r2206.html

Fceux SVN r2206 is released. FCEUX is a cross platform, NTSC and PAL Famicom/NES emulator that is an evolution of the original FCE Ultra emulator. Over time FCE Ultra had separated into many separate branches. The concept behind FCEUX is to merge elements from FCE Ultra, FCEU rerecording, FCEUXD, FCEUXDSP, and FCEU-mm into a single branch of FCEU. As the X implies, it is an all-encompassing FCEU emulator that gives the best of all worlds for the general player, the ROM-hacking community, and the Tool-Assisted Speedrun Community.

Fceux SVN changelog:
r2206
win32: poll hotkeys while no rom is loaded

Nintendulator WIP 09-03-2011

News via Emurussia

NES emulator has been updated. Changes:
- A very small bug has been fixed in the PPU savestate code - instead of simply jumping from NTSC to PAL or from PAL to Hybrid each time a state is loaded, it'll now actually load it from the savestate like it's supposed to.
- Another very small bug has also been fixed in the movie savestate code - if the movie had a non-empty description, loading a savestate for it would corrupt the description and the input data itself.
