NeoPop v0.39 Released
NeoPop is a newer NeoGeo Pocket Color emulator that's been updated to v0.39. Here's what's new:
  • Fixed a bug in the RLC.L instruction that would crash NeoPop during "Card Fighters". Thanks mfm005!
  • Loading a state refreshes the debugger (if applicable)
  • Optimised the release build by removing more debugging information. Split 'getX()' into 'getX_dis()' and 'fetchX()' for disassembly and execution. Hope this makes it a bit faster for you ShogetsuHS!
  • Added H flag support to DAA. Fixed the results a bit, but it still doesn't pass Judge's CPU test...
  • Fixed ADD/ADC in all modes, wasn't extending carry bit (I think) Hasn't fixed anything.
  • Removed the 'bad instruction' filter - it's always on, but this will only generate occasional messages as almost all of the opcodes are written.
Download it from the Console Emulators section.
