MAME v0.178 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.

RxNES v1.57 released!

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.

RxNES v1.57 Changelog:



- Fixed : Tiles uploaded to the Database are now added to a .zip on the server :) Now the current DB for each game will be 1 tiny zip file.
- Fixed : Crash when dumping a tile that already had been dumped.
- RxNES now uploads dumped tiles to a central database. These files are 1/10th of a KB each. See next - point for more info.
- 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...)
