vbSpec 1.80 Released!
vbSpec is a ZX Spectrum emulator for Windows. Heres whats new:
  • Joystick support fpr joysticks up to 8 Buttons included (Options->General settings->Joystick). vbSpec supports up to 2 joysticks (it could support more, but I don't think that there is any Speccy-game, that supports more than 2 joysticks), connected joysticks and the number of buttons are detected.
  • Joystick redefinition support (direction and buttons) included (Options->General settings->Define). You can redefine the joystick directions and the buttons as keystroke or as port and in value pairs (keystrokes are converted; to define a direction or a button as ENTER, enter 49150 as port and 190 an value). You can also save and load your costum joystick settings in/from *.jcf-files (vbSpec joystick configuration file).
  • Full screen support included (Options->Display->Full screen...). Pressing Shift + Esc you will get the main menu of vbSpec. The price for the full screen modus is, that the controll box and the icon disapeared from the titel bar. The Shift + Esc menu has an extra option, "Normal view!" - this sets the "PAPER" size to the normal Speccy size.
  • YZ-Switch for german/QWERTZ keyboards incuded (Options->YZ Switch)
  • Multiface poke emulation included (Options->Poke memory)
  • Fixed a bug that caused the loaded screenshots were not instantly visible.
  • The installer starts in German, but you can choose the intallation language (German/Deutsch or English)

Xeven has updated his playstation emulator PSXeven to include important fixes that did not make it into 0.15.

Kega Lazarus SE Release 2 Released!
Kega Lazarus is a Sega Master System, Game Gear, Genesis & SegaCD emulator for Windows. Heres whats new:
  • Altered the FPS code. The speed should now be much more stable, as Kega will no longer try and play "catch-up" as rigorously as before.
  • Added Alternate Timing System, selectable from the options menu. If your sound card is not providing accurate timing, and your FPS counter is still doing strange things, select this option. You may notice slight pops / jumps in the sound with this mode, however, so you really should try different sound drivers first.
  • Kega should now work without a sound card
  • FPS Counter now only enabled while a game is running.
  • Darkfalz reported problems with defining controller buttons, that apparently only appeared in the last version. This code has not changed since it was first implemented, and I cannot see how it could be a problem that only appeared in the last version. However I have altered the code so that now it will not accept the same controller button twice in a row. This should eliminate all such problems.
  • Small fix to the SMS/GG VDP emulation. Now Rainbow Islands works correctly.
  • Added Genesis/MegaDrive Bank Switching code. Super StreetFighter II should now work.
  • All FullScreen issues should now be fixed.
  • Game Genie (Genesis/MegaDrive) is now re-implemented.
  • Added option to disable sprite limiting on the SMS/GG. Since the SMS/GG cannot display very many sprites at all per line, there are some games that flicker rather badly (e.g. Bubble Bobble.) For these games you can disable the limit. Be aware, however, that some games may *require* the limiting to work correctly.
  • Added option to disable the SMS border colour. I do not understand why people want this. A real SMS has borders, and - come on - if most of the screen is blue, doesn't a blue border look best? Whatever. This is the most pointless option I've ever added :-P AFAIK Kega is the only emulator that actually bothers to emulate this - yet people want to take it out. So much for the quest for accuracy...

  • When Dapple II cannot find an appropriate video mode, it will now die more gracefully.

Satourne WIP Update
News of progress on Saturn emulation for PC in the form of:
  • New graphic plugin developed, but has speed problems
  • Fabien hopes to fix the plugin soon (once he figures out the problem)
  • Webmaster was doing a college graduate thesis, hence lack of updates.
  • He found the bug that prevented booting from Saturn CDs.
  • VDP plugin still needs work. VDP1 is done, only VDP2 remains.
  • Compatibility has improved:
    • Virtua Figter Remix ST-V version works, until you start a fight (freezes)
    • Other games startup (Shining Force 3) but as the graphical plugin is not done, no further testing could be done.

Kega Lazarus SE Released!
Kega is a Sega Master System / Game Gear for Win9x/ME/2000/XP. Heres whats new:
  • Fixed the remaining Z80 bugs. I'd already fixed all this stuff for Klive (my Spectrum Emulator), but as the version of my Z80 emulator used in Kega is Kega-Specific, the fixes were not copied over for the last version. Now they are. The Z80 code is, as far as I am aware, 100% accurate now.
  • Fixed a bug where SMS sprites did not wrap at the top of the screen correctly. I thought this worked already, but never got around to testing it. It works now.
  • Added SMS/GG Expanded Sprites. I don't know of a game that even uses these, in fact, the Genesis with Power Base Converter doesn't even support this feature. But Kega now supports it.
  • Added SMS Right Scroll Lock feature. I'm sure a few games use this. But as to what ones, I don't know. Whatever - it's in there now.
  • Added SMS/GG Sprite Collisions. Again, I don't know if anything uses this feature, but it now works.
  • Added proper NMI support (SMS Pause button.) This was working in Kega prior to Lazarus - but I forgot to fix something when I did the rewrite. Now it works.
  • Seperated the LOAD MASTERSYSTEM and LOAD GAMEGEAR ROM options, as per request. This now means Kega will remember a seperate folder for Master System and GameGear ROMs.
  • Added GameGear Border, again, as per request.
  • VSync issue - several people reported strange frame rates while in fullscreen mode, and I have now tracked down what is causing this. It seems that some GFX cards / Drivers misbehave. When you ask the card to flip the framebuffer, you can specify that you don't want to wait for it to happen (as I was doing) so that you don't waste CPU time. But apparently, some cards/drivers ignore this, and wait anyway - throwing the framerate completely out of sync. It's such a shame that video cards these days seem to support 3D only... Anyway, a solution to this problem: VSync. Now, when the VSync option is disabled, it will also cause Kega to tell the card to flip the screen IMMEDIATELY. This fixes the timing problem, unfortunately it also means that you will probably see some tearing going on.

Gens for Xbox v2 Released!
Port of Gens to the Xbox, heres whats new:
  • 4 Player support (At main menu, press LTHUMB, select Emulator Options, then toggle 4 player setting. Do not use this option on games that do not support 4-players because it will screw up the controls. If you start playing a game and you wonder why your controller isn't working, it's probably because you left 4-player mode on.)
  • Delete save files. At main menu, press LTHUMB, then select the option to delete the saved files of the currently selected game.
  • Fixed bug in cheat codes that would not let you enter addresses > 0x7FFF
  • Selectable CD emulation mode. Press A to start a game using the default CD mode (most compatible) or press the RTHUMB button to start a game using the alternate CD mode.
  • Visual description of current video mode when you switch it.
  • RANALOG Up/Down/Left/Right controls SFX/MP3 music volume during gameplay (This was actually in the last release, but not mentioned in the NFO.) No link

Pete's PSX GPU's V1.71 Released!
Pete has released new versions of his great video plugins ,Pete's Win/MesaGL Linux PSX GPUs, for the free PSX Emulators that use the PSEmu Pro Plugin sytem today! News:
  • I've adjusted the OpenGL fullscreen handling somewhat. I don't know if it will help with the ATI 3.2 Catalyst drivers (which seem to tend to crash when the rendering context is getting released), but it should not hurt as well.
  • The results of my experimental 1.70 alpha texel handling were interesting. As expected, some Intel and Kyro card users reported black areas, but also ATI cards were affected. So, I've adjusted the alpha values again, this way the texture handling (without filtering) will be OK on all cards, and also activated filtering will be fine with most cards (thanx to Badara for checking it on his ATI card). For cards still having filtering troubles I've included a new special game fix: "Use old texture filtering", which will handle the filtering like version 1.69 (or older).
  • A small OpenGL plugin bugfix for the lovers of the 'keep aspect ratio' option: now you can use the 'direct framebuffer upload' special game fix without problems. Thanx to F-3582 for reporting that issue.
  • Beside the usual bugfixes (as described above), I also wanted to add some new eye candy and improved compatibility. Snu suggested to use a new kind of hires textures: simply scaled ones, without any interpolation like 2xSaI. First I was sceptical, and my first checks seemed to proove me right: I couldn't see any image quality improvements at all. So I dropped that idea for a few days, until it came to my mind that I've used a too small window resolution (640x480) for my tests. And yeah: Scaled hires textures combined with extended texture filtering and a resolution of 800x600 or higher gives a nice display: there will be a slight (not very strong) filter effect on 2D backgrounds, without tile effects or much texture glitches (well, there are the usual exceptions like FF7, which simply hates any kind of texture filtering). So, it's a good alternative to the standard texture filtering (which often screws 2D backgrounds), use it if you like it (and your hardware can handle it, of course... like 2xSaI you will prolly need at least 64 MBytes vram with most games).
  • As for compatibility: it's well known that the current hw/accel psx gpu plugins have to do all kind of compromises, resulting in lower compatibility (means: missing screens, screwed displays, flickering, etc) with some games. And it's not easy to improve the compatibility of one game without screwing a dozen other ones. Anyway, in 1.71 I've tried to improve my 'splash screen' upload detection (hopefully in a way that it doesn't harm games), but I've noticed still missing screens in Tony Hawks (demo), Soulreaver (demo) and Colin McRae (demo). So I've decided to do an even nastier screen detection as well, but this one has to get activated manually as a new special game fix, since it surely will act badly with much other games (for example ChronoCross). _Only_ activate the new fix when you are missing important information screens (and of course there is no guarantee that the fix will help your game).

Spectaculator 5.0 Released!


Spectaculator is a 16K/48K/128/+2/+2A/+3 Spectrum emulator for Windows.

News:

Spectrum +3 emulation:
    • Full implementation of NEC ตPD765A command set.
    • Emulates up to 2 disk drives (the maximum the +3 can take).
    • Automatically switches the drive emulation between a +3 3" (CF2) drive and a standard 3ฝ" DSDD drive depending on the type of disk image inserted.
    • Accurate emulation to load all those disks with copy protection schemes such as Speedlock +3, Alkatraz +3, Three Inch Loader, Hexagon etc.
    • Fast disk access mode. Significantly reduces load and save times.
    • Autoboot disks feature. Inserting a bootable disk into drive A: will cause the Spectrum to automatically reset and start loading from the disk. Hold down Shift to override.
    • Disk drives window for easy management of disk images. Disk images can be write protected, formatted, ejected and inserted.
    • Disk image formatter. Allows formatting of 3ฝ" disk images to their full capacity (720 KB) which +3DOS cannot do. Also allows 3" (CF2) disk images to be formatted with the Amstrad CPC SYSTEM and DATA formats.
    • Disk images are automatically saved and restored when using zx-state (snapshot) files.
Interface 1 enhancements:
    • RS-232 serial port emulation. Spectaculator can use files for serial I/O or a free serial (COM) port on your computer. Using a suitable cable, it's possible to connect Spectaculator to a real Spectrum and transfer data between them quickly and easily.
    • Microdrives window allows opening cartridges from zip files. Previously, you needed to use Open from the File menu.
    • Added a toolbar to the Microdrives window to allow quick formatting of cartridges.
    • Added authentic generation of the Microdrive motor noise (both with and without a cartridge inserted).
    • Fixed a bug when restoring the Microdrive state from a zx-state file that could possibly cause a crash.
Cassette Recorder enhancements:
    • Improved accuracy of loading noise generation. High frequencies (especially turbo loaders) sound much nicer - no buzzing or other aliasing artifacts. Real Spectrums now like them too.
    • Added boost volume of loading noise option. With this enabled, it's possible to use the cassette recorder to play cassette files directly into a real Spectrum (depending on the output levels of your sound card).
    • Added Stop at end of tape option. This was needed to stop certain multiload games like Defenders of the Earth from trying to load the second side of the tape before you could insert the TZX of it.
    • New Enable writes to Multiface ROM option. Required by certain programs such as SoftCrack.
    • Added a Generate NMI option which triggers an NMI even if the Multiface is disabled.
    • Added context-sensitive help that was previously missing from some dialog boxes.
    • Revised the online help to include the new features in this release.

Glide64 V0.40 Released!
Well Gonetz (Co-Author/Now Leading the project for the greatest video plugin for the N64 emulators Glide64) has informed us that Glide64, has progressed nicely that it is time to put out a new release!! This one has great compatibility and it is a must to try!
  • Long awaited Yoshi Story support. Microcode for this game was initially implemented by Dave2001 long long time ago, right after version 0.253. So this is his last contribution to the project. When I decided to continue the project, Dave's sent me his last version. Unfortunately it did not worked for some reason, so it was not included in new versions. When I started to work on this version, I returned to this code and found the reason why it was not working. The reason was an error in Glide64 ini file. Thus, Dave's code was actually working. I have implemented missing parts of the microcode, fixed many many bugs, made some improovments and as the result Yoshi is fully playable! Some minor glitches remain though, I hope to fix them in future.
  • When Yoshi started to live in my PC, I decided to check, can I make playable Pokemon Puzzle League - game, unsupported by any emulator or plugin. This game uses the same S2DEX microcode as in Yoshi. Actually, PPL uses 2 microcodes, and each had it's own problems. I have managed to fix most of them, so game finally is fully playable. Some parts of picture are missing due to lack of frame buffer emulation, but gameplay is not affected by this.
  • Experience, gained in struggle with Yoshies and Pokemons, allowed me to fix numerous texture errors in V-Rally 99 and pointer problem in Bust-A-Move 2 - Arcade Edition. Both games are fully playable now.
  • Added support for Tonic Trouble.
  • Fixed a bug in rdp_loadtlut() function which caused severe gfx errors in Inferno area of Banjo Tooie. Thanks Straight for bug report and save file.
  • Implemented branch_z function for F3DEX 1 ucode. This fixed all texture errors in SF Rush.
  • Allowed negative viewport for F3DEX 2 ucode. This fixed Destruction Derby Professional Championship. Thanks Scyther for bug report and save file.
  • Implemented moveword:move_point for RSP SW 2.0X ucode. Cruis'n USA works perfectly now!
  • Implemented loading of title screen in games which draw image before first ProcessDList (Rayman2, Tonic Trouble, Wave Race...). Thanks Rice for indirect help - I found solution in sources of his great plugin.
  • Implemented TextureRectangleFlip. This fixed text in Wetrix.
  • Many many other small fixes and improvements. Please check our new compatibility list for details

Gbcemu wip
The official website of Gameboy/Gameboy Color emulator, GBCEmu, has been updated today. Here is what was posted: The WIP News
    • 4-12-2003 :: Samuel Fredricks added some documentation to the new help file, which will be added into 2.0.0 Release Candidate 1. Larry Dunn has researched serval options for a GameboyAdvance emulation. The next version which is titled "BlackComb" will be a muchly improved emulator, and we will be looking at re-writing the code and finally making a new .exe core! (its been around since 2002!!!!).
Bandwith Issues
    • Now onto the site - At the moment, "FreeWebs" has dropped the original account, so I have setup a secondary one for further downloads. Until I get a better hosting solution I will have to keep on doing this, or unless FreeWebs just give me some more space and be "good little hosts".

Xsnes9X News!
Lantus the author of amongst many things Xsnes9X has today updated his site with news about his great Snes emulator for the Xbox:
  • And you all thought i was busy with Duke3d. Well, actually i have been working on Duke for the most part but tonight had the urge to work on some xSnes9x.
  • I've almost finished adding in Samba (SMB) support. This is working really great it reads any .smc, .fig, .swc and .smc files directly over the network. Zip files of course are supported however, since zlib is used, and i dont have the desire to make changes in the lib, for zips i had to 'cheat' and copy the file to the application swap space and run it from there.
  • The only other issue with this currently is theres no validation that the file itself is a snes rom and may subsequently lock up the emulator. I'll need to work something out here but overall its looking very promising.

PSXeven v0.14b Released!
Seems Xeven is on a roll, as another bugfix for the recently released PSXeven version popped up at his webpage, version 0.14b ! This version fixes an error with savestates which made it into the last version:
  • Sheez! another one. Well i didnt do enough testing with the new savestate format and now that i played some games i realized its not being loaded correctly. So this version fixes that. I uploaded a full pack as well as an "exe" only zip file.
So again, make sure to get the new version for your best gaming experience - as nothing about incompatibilities has been mentioned, I'd say that savestates shouldn't be corrupted. Thanks to ryder2002 for the news!

GBCEmu 1.0.0 Release Candidate 1 Released!
A brand spanking new emulator, that has been named "GBCEmu" has been released today. The author behind it is a software company that goes by the name of Jackarse Software. The emulator is a Gameboy Color emulator for Windows. Here's a little bit of information on it: Information From The Site:
  • This is the first official web release of my Nintendo™ Gameboy Color emulator for Microsoft Windowsฎ. I have been working on this emulator for a period of about six months. This emulator could not have been made without the help of my additional team members. I would like to thank Samuel Fredricks (a.k.a "$ilent$hadow") for his help with bug testing and also the major help he has given me with coding. I would also like to thank Larry Dunn (a.k.a "BusH") for his help with the bug testing, and the additonal support. At this stage, I am not planning on releasing RC2 until the end of this year, as with other emulators they release a new version as soon as one tiny little bug has been fixed. This is not the case with GBCEmu. However, additional information about the emulator should be uploaded onto this domain in a couple of months, after my help documentation "guru" Sam will be doing that. Here is the list of features held within 1.0.0 RC1
What's Coming Up In The Next Version:
  • More improvements to the Graphical User Interface (G.U.I).
  • More additions to the emulator core.
  • More speed, and a new system to be emulated hopefully (GameboyAdvance).

EmuLoader v3.7.1 Released!
    Emuloader is a front end for mame, here's what's new:
      Fixes:
      • Access violation error when trying to change sound clips settings, when this feature is not enabled
      • Access violation error when clicking on the spectrum panel, while sound clips feature is not enabled
      • Compiled with a new version of Zipforge (v2.02). I think that the problem some users were still having with fake bad .Zip files are really gone ... I hope
      • The option "HIGH PRIORITY" on "CUSTOM GAME OPTIONS" screen was not being translated
      Changes:
      • Sound spectrum panel turns invisible when the sound clips feature is disabled
      Removed:
      • Audit HD images option. MD5 checksum is now being read directly from the chd file
      • FILE chd md5.ini is not required anymore
      Optimizations:
      • HD images auditing
      • Preview pictures loading: This feature has had a dramatic speed up... when using zipped preview images (snap.zip, marquees.zip, ETC...) the entire list of files from the zip are loaded into memory. This way, EL don't need to keep going through the zip contents every time you select another game. This results in much faster games scrolling :) Note that, by using unzipped preview images, the loading time has always been a lot faster, since the image file dont need to be unzipped before showing it.
      New Additions:
      • Volume control for sound clips
      • Hot-key to enable / disable sound clips: Shift+F7
      • Last spectrum mode used is now restored when enabling sound clips
      • All new options from MAME 0.67

                      SmoothMAME v0.67 Released!
                        Another unofficial MAME this time for users who desire smooth scrolls/displays in games that use a non-standard refresh rate of 50 Hz or higher (theres even a p4 optimised build, I miss that from fastmame so it's good to see it again, Cruisin USA may be a playable speed for me again). Changes are as the other version. Get from the link above.

                              EMU Loader v3.7 Released!
                              New version has been release. The Sound Clips feature has been restored and is powered by the Fmod Sound System. What does this mean? Well you can play any audio format that Fmod supports! Check out the changes.. New in EMU Loader 3.7 Fixes
                              • 1. Sometimes a game could be wrongly detected when creating or refreshing games, if a bad .zip were found.
                              • 2. When hiding “Favorite User Manager”, you could still load the manager from the status bar.
                              Changes
                              • 1. Default Icons 2 is modified a little bit “resources\defaulticons\gameslist2".
                              New Additions
                              • "Sound Clips" Feature is back and better than ever. Using the awesome “Fmod API”. A new DLL is needed though. The file “Fmod.dll” must be placed in the same folder as front end’s binary. Let me tell you… This API is simply fantastic and very fast. You will not feel any slowdowns when scrolling games or when loading the sound files. Best of all, it uses very little memory.
                              • It supports a lot of audio formats; they are (Note that EMU Loader support all those types!)
                                • Microsoft WAV: ".WAV" (Including the new 24-bit and 32-bit PCM WAV files)
                                • MP2 and MP3 (Including with variant bit rates): ".MP2", ".MP3"
                                • OGG Vorbis: ".OGG"
                                • Windows Media Format: ".WMA", ".ASF"
                                • Midi / Direct Music: ".MID", ".RMI", ".SGT"
                                • Impulse Tracker: ".IT"
                                • Fasttracker 2: ".XM"
                                • Screamtracker 3: ".S3M"
                                • Protracker / Fasttracker: ".MOD
                              • There is a cool "Spectrum" at the bottom of the preview picture area, with two different types. Just click on the spectrum area to switch between the views. Note that this spectrum may have bugs, since I’m not the coder.
                              • Included in the feature’s "Package" there are a few options to select, but I think that it will work on most systems with default settings... they are:
                                • Output Type: Choose between "Windows Multimedia Waveout", "Directsound" (Default), and "A3D".
                                • Output Device: Sound devices installed on your system. Usually you can leave it at default ("Primary Sound Driver"). Note that if the sound clip feature is disabled, this option will be empty (Fmod works this way).
                                • Mixer Type: This mixer is just to make possible to play various sound at the same time, with optimizations for specific CPUs. There are low quality and high quality mixers, and you can try them all, but the best high quality mixer is selected by default. The four first modes are low quality, and the last four modes are high quality.
                                • Output Rate: Sample rate quality for playback output.
                              • There are four extra options that I added to make this feature more "User Friendly":
                                • Play Sound Clip: Activate / Deactivate the feature.
                                • Loop: Make the sound clip play in an endless loop.
                                • Uses Parent Sound Clip: When selecting a clone game, if the clip filename is not found, the clip from the master game will be played, if found.
                                • Folder: Select the folder were all clip files are (Files Cannot Be Compressed... a.k.a. "Zipped")
                              Download it from the above link.

                              Virtual GameBoy Advance 2.0 Released

                              Virtual GameBoy Advance (VGBA) is an emulator of the GameBoy Advance videogame console produced by Nintendo. It allows to run GameBoy Advance games on PCs, Macs, or just about any other sufficiently fast computers in existence. VGBA is not a real GameBoy Advance though and will not play older GameBoy and GameBoy Color games. You will need VGB for that.

                              VGBA 2.0 Changes
                              • Majorly redesigned screen rendering routines, making them faster.
                              • Added sprite sorting and precomputation to speed things up.
                              • Fixed window rendering.
                              • Fixed multiple screen rendering bugs.
                              • Color effects can now be disabled in WININ/WINOUT registers.
                              • Alpha blending can now be applied multiple times (Lord Of The Rings).
                              • Disabled alpha blending for pixels with no second argument (Lord Of The Rings).
                              • Added window support to bitmapped screen modes.
                              • Disabled display of the first 512 sprite patterns in bitmapped screen modes.
                              • Changed LDM instructions not to write back base register if it has just been loaded from memory (Golden Sun 2, Kong, VRally 3, etc.). Now setting R12=0x04000000 in VBlankIntrWait() and IntrWait() (Bubble Bobble Old And New).
                              • Added QOpARM() and WOpARM() functions for fast opcode fetching.
                              • Removed data rotation in unaligned 32bit writes (Downforce).
                              • Modified BIOS decoders that write to VRAM to use words, not bytes.
                              • Now returning correct "broken" values when program tries to read BIOS area by bytes and 16bit words.
                              • Now doubling byte writes to VRAM and palette.
                              • Now mirroring VRAM as 64kB+2*32kB.
                              • Now mirroring SRAM, OAM, and palette.
                              • Removed mirroring of I/O addresses.
                              • Now waiting for sound thread to die in VGBA-Unix.

                              Saturnin Released!
                                Saturnin is a Saturn emulator for Windows. Here's what's new:
                                • It shows the bios screen, allows navigation through Menu, and date/hour/language setting etc.. (No cursor in this release, as I haven't added sprite support yet).
                                • it can disassemble a Saturn binary file
                                • it can show the system ID of a Saturn cd (only d:\ now, sorry)

                                    Nebula Model 2 0.8 Released!
                                      Nebula Model 2 is a Sega Model 2 arcade emulator for Windows. Here's what's new:
                                      • Frame limiter is properly working now, so games will not run at more than 60 fps.
                                      • Added all tilemap features of the Model2/System24 tilemap chips. Of course, this has caused a speed drop. You can disable the tilemaps to gain speed using the keypad * key, this will cycle: all tilemaps, high tilemap only, low tilemap only, no tilemaps.
                                      • Fixed a bug in the SCSP that caused sgt24h sound hang.
