CEMU 1.19.0d released!

http://www.cemu.info/

# Cemu detailed changelog for 1.19.0d
# Patreon release date: 2020-05-08
# Public release date: 2020-05-15


# New in 1.19.0d:

Vulkan: Fixed an issue where async pipeline compilation could block the render thread
This should reduce stutter even further when async compilation is enabled

OpenGL: Fixed 'Compiled x shaders...' notification not showing since 1.19.0

# New in 1.19.0c:

Vulkan: Tweaked sync/async decision algorithm
Async shader and pipeline compilation should no longer break Splatoon ink mechanics

Vulkan: Fixed a bug that caused Xenoblade Chronicles X character models to be broken on Nvidia Vulkan beta drivers

Vulkan: Fixed a texture leak which could lead to performance slowly degrading

# New in 1.19.0b:

general: Fixed crash that could occur during the shader cache loading screen

# New in 1.19.0:

general: Updated language files

Vulkan: Added experimental option to enable asynchronous compilation of shaders and pipelines
This option trades stutter vs emulation accuracy

--- Details ---
When enabled, uncached shaders and pipelines will be compiled asynchronously in the background
While a pipeline is compiling, all drawcalls for it will be skipped, leading to missing or broken graphics for a period of time
Since Wii U's GPU is a GPGPU, not all drawcalls can be skipped without causing gameplay bugs or persistent graphic artifacts
To deal with this problem Cemu includes speculative logic to identify essential shaders that must not be skipped
These shaders will always be compiled synchronous and will still introduce stutter
False negatives are possible and long lasting graphic bugs can occur when async compilation is used

Per default this option is disabled. It can be toggeled in the menu under debug -> experimental
It will only work if VK_EXT_pipeline_creation_cache_control is supported by the graphics driver
As of writing this, the required Vulkan extension is only supported by:
Nvidia Vulkan 1.2 beta drivers (442.75 - 443.15)
AMD optional drivers (Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.3.1 or higher)

On a personal note, we consider this feature a hack due to the unreliable and workaround-like nature
However we also understand that stutter-free gameplay is often more important than having accurate rendering
In the (far) future, we will introduce additional methods to reduce shader stutter without sacrificing accuracy

Vulkan: Fixed an issue where depth clear operations on newly created textures would be skipped
This fixes lighting issues in MK8 and Splatoon

Vulkan: If supported by driver use VK_EXT_custom_border_color to emulate arbitrary sampler border colors
This fixes grass LOD transitions and other more subtle issues in Breath of the Wild

Vulkan: Tweaks to shader & pipeline compilation counter overlay

coreinit: Fixed FSGetMountSource correctly iterating devices when called repeatedly (#292)

gfxPack: Added support for specifying "default=1" to select a default preset per preset category (#283)

nn_acp: Implemented ACPCreateSaveDirEx()
nn_act: Added support for persisid.dat which handles the highest used account id

PyBoy v1.0.0 released!

Today I’m releasing PyBoy v1.0.0! A Game Boy emulator written in Python, focused on scripting, AI and learning.

Back in 2015, it started as a university project. But I’ve kept working on it, and others have started contributing as well over the years. Today we thought it was time to officially release PyBoy v1.0.0 on PyPi and GitHub!

What is PyBoy

In short, it’s a Game Boy emulator written from scratch in pure Python, with additional support for scripting through an API. We’ve added type definitions, which allows us to compile the software using Cython to get performance comparable to emulators written in C and C++.

Installation

The installation instructions are simple: Install SDL2 on your system, and install PyBoy through pip install pyboy. If you need to compile from source, we also have detailed instructions on the GitHub Wiki for Mac, Linux and Windows.

https://github.com/Baekalfen/PyBoy/wiki/Installation

Features

PyBoy is designed to be accessible from Python, so we support and encourage people who want to make experiments, bots or AI’s to try it out. We are building game-specific wrappers, which at the moment allows programmers to interface with Tetris and Super Mario Land, without any intricate knowledge of the Game Boy.

Documentation can be found at: https://docs.pyboy.dk .

We also want to learn and experiment with more exotic features. Based on work from a university project, we’ve added rewinding to the emulator. Which means, you’ll be able to turn back time in any game.

We support: macOS, Raspberry Pi (Raspbian), Linux (Ubuntu), and Windows 10.

MAME v0.220 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.

Cemu v1.15.11c released!

It's time for another Cemu update! Version 1.15.11 has just been publicly released which improves the handling of updates & DLC in several ways (better content type detection, automatic backup & restore in case of a failed install and other under the hood enhancements), shader changes in preparation of the upcoming Vulkan renderer (if you are a developer, you may want to check those in better detail by reading the changelog, otherwise your shaders may only be compatible with the OpenGL backend in the future), more functions for the built-in debugger and your usual dose of bug fixes.

Here is the full official changelog:


# # Cemu detailed changelog for 1.15.11c
# Patreon release date: 2019-07-26
# Public release date: 2019-08-02

# New in 1.15.11c:

GX2: Fixed emulation of gl_PointSize when geometry shaders are used

# New in 1.15.11b:

general: Fixed a bug where DLC would be installed into the wrong location
GX2: Fixed broken transform feedback on OpenGL (#157, #159)

# New in 1.15.11:

general: Better update/dlc handling
Updated mlc01 folder locations for updates and dlc to match those of an actual Wii U
Newly installed updates and dlc will be stored at the new locations, while previously installed ones are still detected properly
Improved detection of type of content (affects installation and gamelist)
Installing updates/dlc will now backup previously installed content and restore it on failure/cancelation

debugger: Implemented more instructions for assembler and disassembler
debugger: Assembler now supports basic expressions in place of constants
debugger: Fixed a crash when stepping into imports

coreinit: Fixed OSUninterruptibleSpinLock_Acquire() not restoring interrupts before switching to the scheduler

nn_erreula: Fixed a bug where the same message would keep poping up

padscore: Opening the input configuration window no longer temporarily disconnects the emulated controllers
padscore: Fixed PPC stack corruption caused by KPADSamplingCallback (#140)

nn_fp: IsOnline() now only returns true if there is an established friend server session. This should fix crashes or softlocks in games that only worked in online mode


GX2: Shader tweaks to bridge the gap between OpenGL and the upcoming Vulkan renderer
If you are a graphic pack developer, be aware of these changes:
- All shaders are now generated with a Vulkan and OpenGL compatible header using #ifdef / #endif preprocessor directives
- gl_Position should always be set via the new SET_POSITION() macro
- Shaders used in combination with point primitives always have to write gl_PointSize
- Point shaders that get their point size from renderstate have a new uniform variable (uf_pointSize)
- Primitive points will modify the vertex shader base hash (+0x71)
Existing custom shaders remain compatible with the OpenGL backend, except for vertex/geometry shaders used in combination with GL_POINTS which need to be updated


Note:
(#xx) refers to bug tracker issues resolved by this change. See " target="_blank">http://bugs.cemu.info/projects/cemu/[/quote]

SSF PreviewVer R6 released!

SSF is a Sega Saturn emulator for Windows systems using DirectX 9.0b. The current version claims near-complete implementation of the Sega Saturn hardware (not counting emulation bugs), and can emulate the Saturn based Sega Titan Video arcade hardware too. As with most emulators, CDs or disc images are not included and have to be owned separately. The BIOS is also not included; as of 0.07 Beta R3, games run without the BIOS however. The usage of BIOS files is optional but recommended for better compatibility, and needed for tasks such as management of the contents of the internal memory of the Sega Saturn, or setting the system clock.

SSF Changelog:



Fix for hangup immediately after startup
Subcode correction when using CD image
Improvement of CD image reading
How to hold index data in CD track (CD Track / Index option, files in CDIndex folder need to be recreated)
Display problem fixed at the time of GPU rendering
And the CD image used by the Android version has also been changed to CUE + Binary Image.

All MAME v0.212 released!

Mame v0.212

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.

https://www.mamedev.org

HBMAME v0.212

HBMAME (HomeBrew MAME) is a derivate of MAME, and contains various hacks and homebrews that are not included in MAME. It is based on the latest MAME source from SVN at the time of release.

bsnes v108 released!

bsnes is a Super Nintendo / Super Famicom emulator that began development on October 14th, 2004. It is a subset project of higan, and focuses on performance, features, and ease of use.
bsnes can optionally be configured to have equal accuracy to higan's SNES emulation, but these accuracy options do come at a run-time performance cost.
Some of the unique features to bsnes include:
100% (known) bug-free compatibility with the entire officially licensed SNES library
true Super Game Boy emulation (utilizing SameBoy)
HD mode 7 graphics (vastly increased anti-aliasing for affine texture effects)
a multi-threaded video graphics renderer
built-in databases for games, PCBs, and cheat codes
save state manager with screenshot previews and label support


This release brings in a 25% speed increase, optional frameskipping during fast forward (allowing an additional 33% max frame rate)

official HD mode 7 support, SameBoy integration for 60% faster and more accurate Super Game Boy emulation

software filter support (snes_ntsc, HQ2x, Eagle, scanlines, etc)

the return of mightymo's integrated cheat code database, cheat search support, movie recording and playback support, rewind support, cubic audio interpolation, 7-zip decompression support, ExLoROM board mapping support, adaptive sync support for OpenGL, and greatly improved macOS support.


And if that's not enough, there's also true pixel-perfect ZSNES snow effect emulation ... seriously!

bsnes now also has an official GitHub repository with nightly builds to enable more rapid and collaborative development.

As with most emulators, CDs or disc images are not included and have to be owned separately. The BIOS is also not included; as of 0.07 Beta R3, games run without the BIOS however. The usage of BIOS files is optional but recommended for better compatibility, and needed for tasks such as management of the contents of the internal memory of the Sega Saturn, or setting the system clock.

SSF Changelog:


The problem of runaway is corrected when the CD image of MultiFile (MultiTrack) is specified
Also, even if you insert a game CD of a different model, it will not run out of control.

Mesen-S v0.2.0 has been released!

Mesen-S is a cross-platform SNES emulator for Windows & Linux built in C++ and C#.

Mesen-S v0.2.0 changelog:


This release greatly improves accuracy, compatibility and adds support for some of the enhancement chips. The vast majority of (supported) SNES games should play without any issues - if you find problems in a game (freezes, graphical bugs, etc.), please report them!

General
Greatly improved timing/accuracy for everything: CPU, PPU, SPC, DMA, etc. Including:
Numerous PPU fixes - graphical issues have been fixed in several games.
Freezes in several games have been fixed by improving the SPC emulation accuracy.
Support for games using the DSP-1/2/3/4 and ST010/ST011 enhancement chips. Note: A firmware is required for these - the emulator will ask for the firmware when loading a game that requires one.
Libretro support
Added a number of UI options (mute in background, etc.) and corrected a few UI problems.


Debugger
SPC debugger window (along with breakpoints, watch, labels, etc.)
Sprite viewer
Lua scripting
Improved usability and added new features to tile/tilemap viewers
DMA channel filters for the event viewer
Misc. debugger features (break options, disassembly options, etc.)
Ability to log the SPC and DSP-n chips in the trace logger.
CC65/CA65 source code and symbols integration
Labels/comments in the disassembly view

Huge thanks to everybody who helped out by testing, reporting bugs or sharing information!
