KEGA "FuSiOn" has been revamped!
Sunday, February 27th, 2005
Kega fusion is the new name for an older emulator, now being worked on in a regular basis this emulator is another choice when deciding on megadrive (sega 16 bit) consoles emulation.
new this time, only the major updates, for more info read the .txt
- VSync now works in Windowed mode. Be aware that this can severely slow
down the emulator, especially if your monitor is not set to a multiple
of 50hz or 60hz, depending on the region of the game you are playing.
- Added MP3 support to the BIN/CUE engine. Yes, this means that Fusion now
supports ISO/MP3. Fusion uses the Windows Codec and therefore contains
no patented algorithms. Too many people asked for this feature, so
although I didn't really want it, it's now there.
- Fusion should now be compatible with WinXP Visual Styles. (this is great)
what the heck are ya still reading this for? go get it!!
Bad blood over MAME logos!
Monday, February 21st, 2005
So far this is what is known, David R. Foley, the CEO of "Ultracade" (god knows?) who has no affiliation with MAME whatsoever, has now trademarked the name and logo that has been used by MAME for the past eight years. It has been said that he plans to file suit against the authors of MAME. More on this situation as it develops. More information at the US patent office site.
UltraCade's reply to this. Seems they are just trying to stop the illegal sale of cabinets with ROMs included. Probably just another case of the MAME community overreacting.
GENS emulator update
Thursday, February 17th, 2005
- Fixed a display corruption/flickering bug with DirectX that would often occur when switching between windowed and full-screen.
- Fixed a bug in regards to restoring windowed state (minimized/maximized/etc) when switching between windowed and full-screen; sometimes Gens would not switch out of full-screen properly.
- New build process for win32 version, using MS VS.NET (VC70) with performance optimizations. Resulting binary is larger, but runtime performance appears better. Probably runs more smoothly on slower machines.
