Mame32 v86 has been released
    Driver Improvements:
  • M37710, NamcoSS22 and C352 improvements [R.Belmont]
  • M37710 changes (m37710.diff)
  • NamcoSS22 changes (s22.diff): All CPU clocks changed to measured-by-Guru values, Handle the changed M37710 bus width
  • Temporarily disconnect shared RAM. There's a problem where the 68020's shared RAM test wipes out the 37710's work variables and causes it to crash
  • C352 change (c352.diff):
  • Remove debug printf that accidentally snuck in
  • SPI Improvements [Ville Linde]
  • Improved (but not yet correct) tilemap decryption
  • Preliminary sprite priority support
  • PowerPC 403 core [Ville Linde, Bart Trzynadlowski, Stefano Teso] This is basically SuperModel (Sega Model 3 emu)'s PPC core minus the FPU and 6xx series specific instructions (that stuff isn't ported to MAME yet).
  • Virtua Racing improvements [Olivier Galibert, Andrew Gardner]
  • Hyperstone CPU Core Improvements [Tomasz Slanina, Pierpaolo Prazzoli]
  • Various Konami PPC based games [Ville Linde] gticlub, gradius4, sscope, sscope2, racingj, racingj2, thrilld, midnrun, windheat
  • These are to demonstrate the PPC core in action, they contain only very preliminary emulation and do nothing more than display the initial test screens.
  • Cool Riders [David Haywood] skeleton driver, to be continued at a later date
  • Pit Boss added to merit driver, not investigated the issues yet
  • Tatakae! Big Fighter [Tomasz Slanina] serious protection issues
  • Cool Mini: Hyperstone based game, incomplete set

    PC2E is a rather new take in pcengine emulation, this nifty program attempts to make use of today's graphic power to enhance the pcengine experience, not only is it leaps ahead of others but the authors tend to keep it free, that is not the case with other emulators. current changes made are:
    • - Fixed a major bug that it did not respond to any keyboard input in fullscreen mode on windows2000/XP.
    • - Improved CD play command.
    • - Improved implementation for joystick input.
    • - Speeded up things
    • - Changed implementation of "stretched" screen modes. ("stretched" fullscreen mode now attempt to use hardware acceleration)
    • - Made a simple configuration program (pc2ecfg.exe)
    • - Updated the TOC database.

    Click here for a larger image Over at EmuTalk Forums, someone has released a modified version of Chankast that includes a ton more options and features that will be updated along with the Official Chankast by another team of people. It is quite impressive and is a must try since it also is known to fix speed problems tremendously to even a crazy 100+FPS for this emulator! It also has a Cheats System, Snapshot Maker, Region Selector, and also my favorite feature, it can can check if a new version of the Official Chankast has been released.

    Chankast Released
    Chankast is to my knowledge the first released DC emulator to actually run commercial games! I'll hand you over to the release notes.

    Chankast is an advanced SEGA DREAMCAST emulator for x86 platforms.

    This project started 3 months ago, it's a joint venture between baktery, unai and garrofi. It hasn't been easy, a lot of hours and headaches, but we think it's time to release an alpha version. We hope you will be surprise, you can play commercial games at a decent speed with a 2ghz CPU. Chankast is a very fast emulator with no hle parts.

    We haven't done this emulator to promote piracy, it's a tribute to the great DC.

    The emulator is far from perfect, expect new releases with more speed, better graphics, better sound, and more compatibility :)

    [email protected] in June Issue of Popular Science
    Click here for a larger image [email protected] got a page write-up in the June 2004 issue of Popular Science magazine (on news stands now). It's a "How To" "Do it Yourself" article on how to run MAME in an arcade cabinet. They even have a graphic of my arcade cabinet and lots of building details (they asked for lots of pictures for this article). Well done and a nice plug for [email protected] and other MAME and arcade cabinet building sites. You can also read the article on the Popular Science web site.

    GSdx9 plugin updated.
    "Gabest" released a new version of his GS plugin for pcsx2, as the name suggests, you need direct X9 installed and a pretty beefy PC, never the less GSdx9 is one amazing plugin, since there's no readme included in the archive, the only apparent change is the addition of a frame counter.
