Some exciting news has been posted for those of you following the development of MagicEngineFX the PC-FX emulator. It looks like a lot of progress has been made and currently runs about 80% of the developers games. Here is a full rundown on the work in progress news.
We spent all this week to test our PC-FX games with the latest version of MagicEngineFX (spent two whole months before that to enhance the emulation), we didn't want to release the emulator until at least 75% of our games were working correctly but after this round of testing it looks like we have reached this goal : 80% of our games work now! :)
That doesn't mean that we can release the emulator right now though, ^^; but at least now the compatibility rate is not holding back the release anymore, which is a good news.
We still have to complete :
• the PC-FX BIOS emulation (90% done)
• the Direct-X driver (it's almost complete, are missing only the new features that MagicEngineFX requires compared to MagicEngine)
• the localized GUI (40% done)
• an installer and small external setup program
No release date yet but we will keep you informed of the progresses. Meanwhile we have prepared a little compatibility list for those who want to go shopping while waiting for the release. :) It does not contain all the PC-FX games yet (only those we have) but we are planning to test the others soon.
A lot of the games that are marked 'GOOD' seem to work perfectly but some still have minor glitches, don't expect 100% perfect emulation in all the working games for the first release of MagicEngineFX, but you can expect very good quality emulation. :)
Very cool news. Head on over to the official site for more information.
