mame v0.176 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.

JavaCPC Desktop v2.9.5b released!

JavaCPC Desktop is a brand new Amstrad CPC emulator. It is based on JEMU and is an extremely improved release from JavaCPC 6.7. JavaCPC Desktop is designed to be used on Windows systems only, but maybe can run also on other systems, but a few features will be missing then.

JavaCPC Desktop function:
- High accurate emulation of the Amstrad CPC homecomputer range
- Many useful features like internal YM-Player, JavaCPC paint and many more.
- Perfect AY-Soundchip emulation
- German, English and Spanish keyboard translations
- Virtual tapedrive, which supports CDT, CSW, WAV and MP3
- Built-in debugger features breakpoints and break instructions
- Advanced settings provide different AY-output routines to get the most preferred emulation
- Digiblaster emulation
- CRTC 0 and CRTC 1 are emulated to let almost every demo run fine

JavaCPC Desktop v2.9.5b Changelog:

[quote]
Update from v2.9.4 to v2.9.5b changelog:

New features:
- Assembler understands command "define"
Syntax:
define .myfile = "MYFILE.BIN"
define .mycode = "MYCODE.ASM"
INCBIN .myfile
READ .mycode
this works with INCBIN, INCLUDE and READ (READ is similar to INCLUDE)
When you use INCBIN / INCLUDE / READ instructions, make sure, the additional files are in the same folder than your assembly code.
- Assembler: added IFDEF check
IFDEF does not check the value given to a label, just checks if this label has been defined.
Syntax:
ifdef mylabel
else
endif

- Fixed LD IXH,x and related instructions

Updates:
- RasterPaint is improved. You can now select every single zone/line to disable autogeneration for palette. (last palette is used then)
This is VERY useful to remove some unwanted stripes.
Use right mouse button into preview window:
1x clicked: rastermode 1: zones are selectable. (You can see them) Click one to toggle as active (default) or inactive
2x clicked: rastermode 2: lines are selectable. Click them to toggle, too
3x clicked: rastermode 3: zones AND lines are visible and toggle on click
You need to play around with that. But it really can improve the result.
- RasterPaint: Image can be opened in a 3x zoomed frame. It has the same rastermodes to select zones and lines like the main window.
Makes it easier to find / hit the correct zones.

- RasterPaint: Image, which is vertically higher than 320x200 pixel ratio can be scrolled up/down now.
- An emulator has been added :P (You can only use it with a special cheat command from console...) (Hint: It's not a toaster but may have to do with bread)

Many more things fixed, which I forgot now to list were made, too.
And, as usual: Many new bugs added for your pleasure ;-) [quote]

hpsx64 v019 released!

hpsx64 (Highly-Experimental Playstation Simulator x64) is a PlaysStation (PS) & PlayStation 2 (PS2) emulator for x64 based systems. This is a WORK IN PROGRESS.

hpsx64 v019 Changelog:



hps1x64 v019 – DMA priority fixes


https://sourceforge.net/projects/hpsx64/
 

QMC2 v0.65 released!

QMC2 is a good GUI for MAME & MESS. QMC2(M.A.M.E. Catalog / Launcher II) is the successor of one of the first XMAME/MESS GUI frontends available, QMamecat (derived from MAMECAT, which was text-only). QMC2 has been rebuilt from scratch as a Qt 4 project. Parts of the design and code were inspired by its predecessor. The new design was made as flexible as possible to minimize dependencies from frontend- and CLI-related MAME changes, which was a major deficiency of QMamecat. QMC2 uses a template-based MAME configuration scheme, which can easily be enhanced with additional command line options (defined in an XML template file).

QMC2 v0.65 Changelog:



* fix: don’t prevent the ‘automatic ROM check’ from starting when the ‘Check ROMs’ action gets triggered while the machine list is being reloaded
* fix: image checker: added obsolete file removal support when using libarchive (missing unintentionally)
* fix: image checker: corrected checking for obsolete icon files when read from a directory (this verified only PNGs as valid but the restriction is long gone)
* imp: video player: accept youtu.be besides youtube.com when copy-pasting video URLs
* imp: updated category.ini to MAME 0.175
* imp: emulator configuration templates updated to MAME 0.175 (removed core option ‘antialias’, added Windows-specific option ‘vector_beam_smooth’)
* imp: changed the default command line for the 7zip removal tool to include -mhc=off (disables header compression which libarchive doesn’t support) and -ms=off (disables solid blocks which are generally counter productive for our use case)
* imp: pre-caching icons from a directory will no longer block the GUI and works faster now (using QDirIterator)
* imp: updated PDF.js to a newer git revision (as of 11-JUN-2016)
* imp: hide the splash-screen as soon as the initial start-up is done (in case it’s still open by that time – which is likely)
* imp: added a new alternative system-notes template contributed by José Marcio Rezende Franco (data/gmn/Concise.html)
* new: ROMAlyzer / collection rebuilder: CHD files are now optionally included in the reproduction process (automatically renaming them if required); you can choose between creating hard links, symbolic links and real copies, or to omit CHD reproduction completely (which is the default) — see also bug tracker ID #114
* new: added a catver.ini optimizer to potentially speed up loading slightly
* new: emulator identification is now skipped when the binary’s modification time hasn’t changed – this generally speeds up loading greatly (but can be disabled in case it causes any trouble)

-gba.xml: documented some more Game Boy Advance PCBs. [Fabio Priuli]

-gba.cpp: several improvements [Fabio Priuli]
* Implemented emulation of the "General Purpose I/O" port (GPIO) of
GBA.
* Hooked up S-3511 RTC emulation through the GPIO port. This allows
to avoid the "Internal battery has run dry [...] clock-based
events will no longer occur" messages in Pokémon Emerald / Ruby /
Sapphire. This also promotes Sennen Kazoku to working state.
* Hooked up Boktai Light Sensor emulation through the GPIO port. This
allows to avoid the "Solar Sensor is broken" message in Boktai /
Bokura no Taiyou, which is now playable and to recharge your
weapons in all three games of the series. Light level has to be
chosen via the "Machine Configuration" menu, until we get some
kind of camera input.
* Hooked up Warioware Twist Gyroscope emulation through the GPIO
port. This allows to play the minigames, even if in some case the
input sensibility might need a few tweaks.
* Hooked up Warioware Twist & Drill Dozer Rumble emulation through
the GPIO port. MAME will now output a "Rumble" output bit (0 for
Rumble=OFF and 1 for Rumble=ON) whenever the games try to access
the Rumble component… third party applications can now listen to
the output and redirect it to some hardware that can "rumble" in
sync with the gameplay.

-gba.cpp: implemented emulation of the Tilt sensor used by Yoshi’s
Universal Gravitation / Yoshi Topsy-Turvy / Yoshi no Banyuuinryoku
(and by Koro Koro Puzzle). Note that the calibration can seem a bit
tricky at first, because the emulated screen does not turn as the GBA
would... In order to properly calibrate the sensor, just keep pressed
right for a few seconds when requested to calibrate right inclination
(first calibration screen in Yoshi Universal Gravitation) so to get
the full right range; then keep pressed for left for a few seconds
when requested to calibrate left inclination (second calibration
screen in Yoshi Universal Gravitation) so to get the full left range.
[Fabio Priuli]

-gb.cpp: Added Rumble emulation to the MBC-5 Game Boy Color games which
supported it. MAME will now output a "Rumble" output bit (0 for
Rumble=OFF and 1 for Rumble=ON) whenever the games try to access the
Rumble component… third party applications can now listen to the
output and redirect it to some hardware that can "rumble" in sync with
the gameplay. [Fabio Priuli]

-gb.cpp: Added partial RTC emulation to the MBC-3 Game Boy Color games
which supported it. Clock proceeds a bit too fast during gameplay, but
at least it is not stuck anymore to the time of first configuration.
[Fabio Priuli]

-Netlist changes [Couriersud]
* Introduced HINT(device, hint) to clarify that hints are inheritent
and not specific to devices.
* Added improved profiling support to netlist. Statistics output now
proposes devices for which whole device activation/deactivation be
disabled. No significant improvement for pong, but breakout
experiences a 10% improvement.
* Introduced perftime_t and perfcount_t for gathering statistics.
These templates do not create any code if statistics are not kept.
* Make help2man ./nltool produce usuable output.
* Replaced shared_ptr by unique_ptr.
* Better seperation of setup_t and netlist_t.
* Fixed bugs in rdtsc code. Refactored timer code.
* Moved options code from include to cpp file.
* More truthtable refactoring. Removed half-finished code for
internal state support. As implemented, this would have had no
support for timing delays.
* All netlist device setup is now done in the device constructor. This
significantly increases readability and stability and allowed to remove
init_object calls and start calls.
* Removed a significant amount of dead code.
* Remove ATTR_HOT and ATTR_COLD. Refactored netlist_time.
* More STL usage and c++11.
* Get rid of nl_math. Remove nl_util.h and moved contents to
plib/putil.h.

-Major refactoring of debugger core [Ryan Holtz]
* Eliminate globals/file statics
* Remove lots of stuff from global scope
* Use std::function for custom command registration
* Eliminate some trampolines
* Build fixes from Vas Crabb and balr0g

-n64.cpp: Disabled fast RAM, as it prevents watchpoints from working
and doesn't gain much on the interpreter core. [Ryan Holtz]

-rainbow.cpp: add 23-090b1 z80 arbitrator PROM dump [Lord Nightmare]

-Small update of italian traslation [AntoPISA]

-Fix keyboard shortcuts for disassembly comments pane [Vas Crabb]
* Win32 previously recognised Ctrl+N but menu incorrectly showed
Ctrl+M
* Qt showed Ctrl+C but it was swallowed by text editing and didn't
work
* Ctrl+N is now shown/used by Win32 and Qt (matches Cmd-N on OS X)

-Fix git version [Vas Crabb]
* git version is set by top-level make, not just when GENie runs
* can set IGNORE_GIT=1 for make to ignore git
* git ignored/unavailable uses "unknown" in version string
* mark modified trees as dirty
* note that version now comes from makefile

-sdk80: Added correct monitor ROM. [Nigel Barnes]

-imds2: Added monitor versions 1.1 and 1.2. [Nigel Barnes]

-terminal: Fixed Color configuration. [Nigel Barnes]

-Memory fun [O.Galibert]
* Added AM_SELECT/addrselect field. Replaces the old
AM_MIRROR/AM_MASK combo used to mirror a handler and get the
mirrored bits in the offset.
* Removed mask and/or mirror from where it didn't belong. Simplified
a lot of instances of mask that just weren't needed, especially in
bus handlers. Used the short forms of install handlers where
possible.
* Replaced the 60s hippy, "It's cool man" range parameter handling in
map_range that tried to guess what was meant when the values
passed were not entirely sensible, by a cranky, diner
waitress-turned IRS auditor curmudgeon. Main control function has
a series of 14 tests just to find a reason to fatalerror out your
requests. You have been warned.

* For the sc3000 driver, re-add sk1100 as a fixed SG-1000 expansion
device.
* Add sg1000 software list to sg1000m3 and Japanese/Korean SMS
drivers.

-sms.cpp: implemented some new findings [Enik Land]
* Remove some mirrors for ports $DC/$DD on SMSJ based on Charles' hw
tests.
* Add basic C-Sync callback to 315_5124.cpp, based on Charles' hw
tests.
* Add built-in Rapid Fire (uses C-Sync) for SMSJ and Korean SMS1
drivers.
* Add new SMS drivers due to XTAL differences: sms1br - Tec Toy
Master System I (Brazil) sms2br - Tec Toy Master System II
(Brazil) smsbr - Tec Toy Master System III Compact (Brazil)
sms1paln - Tec Toy Master System I (PAL-N) sms2paln - Tec Toy
Master System II (PAL-N) smspaln - Tec Toy Master System III
Compact (PAL-N) Brazil is PAL-M TV system, but I decided to call
it by the country name, seems to be better recognizable and for
emulation looks more like a NTSC system. PAL-N is used in
Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay and looks closer to the European
PAL system when compared to PAL-M.

-Load save state preparations [Nathan Woods]
* A number of changes and refactorings in preparation for a new
load/save state menu. Most notably, I am C++-ifying osd_directory
(now osd::directory) and changing osd_stat() to return
std::unique_ptrosd::directory::entry
* Take note that this change completely omits POSIX support, simply
because I lack a development environment to support it. This will
have to be done by someone else.

-POSIX implementation for new directory read features, cleanup of
Windows implementation, return directory handle as smart pointer, fix
full build [Vas Crabb]

-cop: nicer sorting routine [O. Galibert]

-Supply modified time for files in archives [Vas Crabb]

-Fix LDUH, LDSH, LDUHA, and LDSHA opcodes in the SPARC core [Ryan Holtz]

-ImGui debugger improvements [Barry Rodewald]
* Memory views now control their own position, removing the scrollbar,
allows finer control of large memory areas.
* Pressing Enter on an empty debugger console input now does a single
step.
* Disassembly and Memory expression inputs now auto-select all.
* Fix various key inputs.
* Send character inputs to views, allowing memory editing to be possible
in a memory window.
* Show a rectangle around the view with focus.
* Add history functionality (press up/down in the debugger console input
widget)
* Allow log windows and debugger console scrollbars to stay at their
maximum value, if moved there.

-Flaming 7 (original): Fixed the Paytable DIP switches. [Roberto Fresca]

-Add older version SPARCstation IPX (Sun 4/50) ROM as an alt bios, and
add ROM locations [Lord Nightmare]

-trs80: fixed loss of keyboard control on some games. [Robbbert]

RockNES v5.24 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 v5.24 Changelog:



– Fixed sound playback with unsigned samples.
– Added an option to save the last accessed folder as the main folder.
– Added support for multiple files when recording music (like game 000.wav, game 001.wav and so on).
– Changed the numbering system of multiple files from hexadecimal to decimal, except for savestate files.
– Removed a few unused codes, plus cosmetic changes there and there.

Dolphin v5.0 released!



The long awaited Dolphin 5.0 release is finally here! After nearly a year of bug-hunting and handling the release process, everything has come together for our biggest release yet! The three previous releases followed a very distinct pattern: sacrifice performance, hacks, and features in exchange for higher accuracy. As such, Dolphin 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 progressively grew slower. But thanks to the cleanups put forward throughout those releases, Dolphin 5.0 is the fastest Dolphin has ever been!

By removing all of those hacks and outdated features while cleaning up the codebase, Dolphin has reached a new level of efficiency, powered by a revitalized dynamic recompiler. On the GPU side, OpenGL and D3D11 have seen tons of optimizations and accuracy improvements, and have been joined by a brand new D3D12 backend for huge performance gains. If there's a CPU or GPU extension that can make Dolphin faster, we take advantage of it.

At a basic level, Dolphin 5.0 is more accurate and more efficient than previous builds in every way. Individual games will vary, especially due to various hacks being removed along the way. Dolphin 5.0 can be downloaded for Windows and Mac OS X from our official website: dolphin-emu.org.

System Requirements to run Dolphin 5.0 can be found here but here's a quick rundown of what changed:

64-bit CPUs and Operating Systems are required.
Windows XP is no longer supported. Windows Vista is no longer officially supported.
Direct3D10/OpenGL3 Required. This means AMD Radeon 4xxx, NVIDIA GeForce 8xxx, or Intel HD 2xxx minimum! Anything older than that will most likely not work or will have significant glitches.
Dolphin on Android is not getting a release build. This does not mean it's falling behind or anything. We just did not feel like Dolphin on Android has reached any milestone with these changes. We'd rather it have its own special time in the sun when it comes, instead of tagging it onto what has been an already concerted effort on the desktop release.

RockNES v5.23 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.

Changelog:



- Fixed broken PPU IRQs.
- Fixed APU triangle and DMC volume decay.
- Fixed/changed APU volume level and resampling.
- Added a small hack for the unwanted race condition $2006 and Y-increment. It should fix flickering games.

ePSXe v2.0.5 released!

ePSXe is a Sony Playstation emulator for your PC running under Win9x/2k/xp or linux/OSX. It takes advantage of the popular PSEmu Pro plugin system.

Changelog:


- Updated the x86 recompiler to use the same recompiler than in the rest of versions (Android, Linux x64, Mac ...). Now it should be easier to fix problems in all versions.
- Ported the local netplay from Android (Experimental). This version is compatible using local netplay with the rest of ePSXe versions from the version 2.0.5 (MacOSX, Linux x86, Linux x64 and Android - version 2.0.6). (Additional info the epsxe docs)
- Ported the GPUCORE threading mode from the Android version. The PC CPUs are faster than Android CPUs, so it will improve less FPS. (This option is better when the CPU is slower).
- Added new threading modes to the Pete OpenGL2 Core Plugin. It includes a basic 2-thread mode, and 2 extra modes adding soft/hardware effects. (It could improve some effects, for example the burning photo on the start of Castlevania)
- In the INPUTCORE plugin, swapped the vibration actuators when using the Xinput mode (to match to real PSX Left/Right). Besides when using a gamepad in digital mode, now you can use the left stick as the dpad.
- Fixed the >2GB PBP roms support. Now it should be able to run the PSX2PSP isos bigger than 2GB as Final Fantasy VIII PSP pack.
- Fixed the cheat codes support when running on the interpreter mode.
- Added a new option in the cheat codes window to download cheat codes from the ePSXe version (Thanks to psxdatacenter.com)
- Fixes to the core which made more games playable or better working. (WING COMMANDER IV, MONKEY HERO)

SSF Test Version 20160615 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 Test Version (2016/06/15) Changelog:



If I have the option to ignore the 68000 address error ON Wanchai connection works.

Higan v099 released!

higan (formerly bsnes) is a Nintendo multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:

- Famicom
- Super Famicom
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Game Boy Advance

higan also supports the following subsystems:
- Super Game Boy
- BS-X Satellaview
- Sufami Turbo
- WonderSan Color and SwanCrystal

Time for a new release. There are a few important emulation improvements and a few new features; but for the most part, this release focuses on major code refactoring, the details of which I will mostly spare you.
The major change is that, as of v099, the SNES balanced and performance cores have been removed from higan. Basically, in addition to my five other emulation cores, these were too much of a burden to maintain. And they've come along as far as I was able to develop them. If you need to use these cores, please use these two from the v098 release.
I'm very well aware that ~80% of the people using higan for SNES emulation were using the two removed profiles. But they simply had to go. Hopefully in the future, we can compensate for their loss by increasing the performance of the accuracy core.
If you want to know more about the removal of these two profiles, please read this article for a more in-depth explanation.

higan v098 Changelog:



* SFC: balanced profile removed
* SFC: performance profile removed
* SFC: expansion port devices can now be changed during gameplay (atlhough you shouldn't)
* SFC: fixed bug in SharpRTC leap year calculations
* SFC: emulated new research findings for the S-DD1 coprocessor
* SFC: fixed CPU emulation-mode wrapping bug with pei, [dp], [dp]+y instructions [AWJ]
* SFC: fixed Super Game Boy bug that caused the bottom tile-row to flicker in games
* GB: added MBC1M (multi-cart) mapper; icarus can't detect these so manual manifests are needed for now
* GB: corrected return value when HuC3 unmapped RAM is read; fixes Robopon [endrift]
* GB: improved STAT IRQ emulation; fixes Altered Space, etc [endrift, gekkio]
* GB: partial emulation of DMG STAT write IRQ bug; fixes Legend of Zerd, Road Rash, etc
* nall: execute() fix, for some Linux platforms that had trouble detecting icarus
* nall: new BitField class; which allows for simplifying flag/register emulation in various cores
* ruby: added Windows WASAPI audio driver (experimental)
* ruby: remove attempts to call glSwapIntervalEXT (fixes crashing on some Linux systems)
* ui: timing settings panel removed
* video: restored saturation, gamma, luminance settings
* video: added new post-emulation sprite system; light gun cursors are now higher-resolution
* audio: new resampler (6th-order Butterworth biquad IIR); quite a bit faster than the old one
* audio: added optional basic reverb filter (for fun)
* higan: refresh video outside cooperative threads (workaround for shoddy code in AMD graphics drivers)
* higan: individual emulation cores no longer have unique names
* higan: really substantial code refactoring; 43% reduction in binary size

MAME v0.174 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:

Source Changes
--------------
-chdman.cpp: fix for code that expects to be able to dereference a
pointer that it knows may be null [Vas Crabb]

-redumped Atomiswave BIOS, confirmed good, added information
[Brizzo, MetalliC]

-screen: Add svg shapes pre-computation [O. Galibert]

-plugins/layout: layout embedded script helper plugin [Carl]

-h8: Add dtc, dma, watchdog (WIP) [O. Galibert]

-h8: Fixes, lots of [O. Galibert]

-cybiko: Make work a little emore, add v1 flash [O. Galibert]

-a5200: fixed regression when loading headerless carts from fullpath.
[Fabio Priuli]

-neogeo.cpp: huge clean up of the cartslot code in order to better
exploit slot devices: [Fabio Priuli]
* moved cart-specific components to the carts itself removing the
fake protection devices from the main system, since they never
belonged there
* removed hacky rom region destruction/construction when a new cart
is inserted, replacing it with proper bank pointers to the carts
(except for ymsnd and ymsnd.deltat region which will require
modernization of the ym devices)
* started re-organization of bootleg boards emulation, so to reduce
the need of collapsing everything into a single cart type with
multiple protection devices, more work is needed

-neopcb.cpp: moved to a separate source file the emulation for JAMMA
PCB versions of a few neogeo games, since they don't have a cartslot.
[Fabio Priuli]

-neogeo.xml: added information about Japanese titles and release dates
to the software list and aligned the list to the driver. [Fabio Priuli]

-cybiko: Remove the ram mirror, it hides when the code fails [O.Galibert]

-vector: Move clipping to avgdvg, the only user. Simplify [O. Galibert]

-nes.cpp: removed configuration settings to enforce sprite limit and to
turn off drawing of top/bottom 8 lines: the code to make these work
was removed before 0.106 and the option were doing nothing since then.
[Fabio Priuli]

-dumped program rom for Gigas (MC-8123, 317-5002) Gigas set, works now
[Corrado Tomaselli]

-Make watchdog timer a separate device [AJR]

-A few addition to A800 software lists [K1W1]

Raine v0.64.13 released!

RAINE is an Emulator for Arcade games. Raine is a M68000 and M68020 arcade game emulator. Raine emulates some M68000 and M68020 arcade games and is mainly focused on Taito and Jaleco games hardware. It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. Raine can emulate many nice games now, and new games (previously unemulated) are appearing weekly.

Raine v0.64.13 Changelog:



These are only fixes, and some quite serious :
- all the neocd games which loaded some data during the game were broken because of a fix for garou (neogeo). Yeah it's quite big, I didn't play any neocd game in 2 months, I really needed a break there !
- Gui : windows doesn't need a colour depth change anymore, and the mode changes should be invisible
- while cleaning up the taito f2 driver (yeah very old stuff, never completely finished), I noticed you couldn't access the pulirula dipswitches, so it's fixed too.

Raine v0.64.12 released!

It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. Raine can emulate many nice games now, and new games (previously unemulated) are appearing weekly.

Raine v0.64.12 Changelog:



I finally got curious about this bug and actually took the time to read the output of raine when the shaders didn't work with the new nvidia drivers, and there was actually something weird to read ! It was all because there was a bug in nvidia drivers <= version 355.11 which made them to return a buffer of 1 byte for the info log of the shader program when there was nothing to report ! I made a workaround for this and totally forgot about it, but it failed when nvidia fixed this and now the buffer has correctly 0 bytes when nothing to report... !!! Anyway it means shaders now work correctly for any nvidia drivers, and it could probably affect some other video cards as well. Those not using shaders don't need to update, this 0.64.12 only fixes shaders, and the fix is very short !

SSF Test Version 20160515 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 Test Version (2016/05/15) Changelog:



Fix GPU rendering when Sonic JAM and some software to change the display.
