26/7 2002

DOSBox 0.50

Yup, en DOS-emulator till Windows och Linux.
Nytt är:

  • added F3 to repeat the last typed command.

  • made it possible to change the shellmessages(dosshell). so you can costumize it.(dosbox.lang)

  • changed cpu core.

  • Fixed a lot of errors with the keyboard: shift-f1 and alt-f1 now works.

  • Fixed some division errors.

  • made a plugin system.

  • added a lot of real 386 mode instructions.

  • made it possible to resize the screen.

  • Mayor source cleanup/reorganisation.

  • Complete rewrite of the graphics routines. Should make it possible to implement more fancy things like 2xsai,interpolation.

  • changed the sound playback.

  • Changed the vga drawing to only draw on memory changes, instead of drawing an entire frame.

  • fixes to the soundblaster/dma code should be able to play 4-bit adpcm compressed sounds.

  • added the correct time to dir.

  • bugfixes to batch-file handling.

  • Lot's of small bugfixes.(Dune1&2,wolf3d, many more).

  • Released the source.

NeoPop 0.53

Ännu en version av NeoPop har släppts.
Nytt är:

  • Added flash support, use the "Options\Paths..." menu to configure.
  • Added DMA support, improves/enhances _many_ games.
  • Added a B&W renderer, both NGP and NGPC systems are now supported.
  • Renamed the colour selection menu option to a selection of 'System Type'.
  • Added an auto detect option to 'System Type' based on the rom's header. This can be manually overidden - but I recommend leaving it.
  • Added negative colour mode emulation. Used by "Faselei!" in B&W mode.
  • Fixed a graphics bug that was creating a mis-sized hardware window. This was causing glitches in several games, including "Metal Slug 2".
  • Added LINK and UNLK instructions to make "Rockman Battle and Fighters" work without causing an error.
  • Added MIRR instruction to prevent an error in "Card Fighters 2"
  • I've removed the "Evolution" Hack as it wasn't working.

  • Small fix: no default sound frequency was given if the registry setting was missing.
  • There have also been some minor fixes to the CPU emulation.
  • There is a known problem that the horizontal interrupt timing isn't accurate for ALL games - please help, fix my code - i'm stumped!

confusionGBx 0.4

En ny version av confusionGBx har släppt.
Ingen aning om vad som är nytt. :(


23/7 2002

NESTron 0.6.2b

En ny version av NESTron har släppts.
Nytt är:

  • Added Fast Forward (again) (Press ~).
  • Added Stereo Sound.
  • Tweaked CPU timing a bit. This may make some games work incorrectly, but it makes most games run a lot better.
  • Added "recent folders" menu.
  • Fixed a sound bug in the savestate/loadstate features.

22/7 2002

NeoPop 0.52

Ännu en ny version av NeoPop har släppts.
Nytt är:

  • Fix a major bug that stopped "Metal Slug 2" working correctly.
  • Fixed saving in other games including "Bust-a-Move" and "Sonic".
  • Added some more missing instructions that allow some of the pachinko "games" to work (not tested thoroughly).
  • Added a hack for "Evolution" (US version only) to allow you enter a dungeon. Not 100% confident this is correct.
  • I've moved the 'bugs.txt' file into the main release.
  • Please help me by sending in new bug reports, preferably for obscure problems that happen further into a game (a saved state would help!)
  • Fixed the communications problem that was causing "Fatal Fury" to complain on one of it's menus.

JNES V0.50 beta 2

En ny version av JNES har släppts.
Nytt är:

  • Fixed recent menu saving to registry.
  • Fixed status bar when rom is opened.
  • Windowed blitter now has choice adds Super2xSai and Scanlines.
  • Fixed mask generation, more roms should work
  • Main window and rom browser positions saved on exit.
  • Cheats window moved around, multi-line cheats in dbase supported.
  • Packed more into each 24bpp xlation write, hopefully improves speed.
  • Fixed 15 bit color mode.
  • Cheats file has seen some enhancements.

21/7 2002

NeoPop 0.51

Ännu en version av NeoPop har släppts.
Nytt är:

  • This version only fixes a few little problems with yesterdays release. It was impossible to proceed to the next level in "Bust-a-Move" because the flash memory write was incorrect.
  • I've added back the performance percentage meter due to popular demand!
  • Most of the changes have been to the source code. I've found time to make a big clean up of the Windows sections, which were the worst (although the debugger still remains pretty messy, it's been totally isolated).
    This version of the code should be much easier to port to other systems.

Dragon Quest 1+2 Reprise

RPGOne har nu släppt en 100% översättning av DQ12r till SNES! Det finns två olika patchar, en med de japanska namnen och en med de engelska Dragon Warrior-namnen. Jag har inte spelat den, men den sägs vara proffesionellt gjord. Så, gå och spela nu.


20/7 2002

NeoPop 0.50

En riktigt stor uppdatering. Dessutom har källkoden släppts fri.
Nytt är:

  • NeoPop is now open source! (under the GPL) I hope there are people out there who can help improve the sound emulation and fix the remaining problems. If you have fixed a bug or added a useful feature, please e-mail me a description of the changes.
  • A lot of work has gone into making the code as tidy as possible, but the focus has really been on the emulation core
  • The Windows code is pretty messy, and will probably get a major shuffle at a later date. I hope the interfaces will remain the same, I think i've covered every aspect, but probably i've missed something out. This shouldn't cause major problems for porters... I hope!

  • Rather than describe every little thing, let's just say that there have been a number of bug fixes and optimisations made across the board. Both executables are also a lot smaller.

  • Fixed a bug that was causing residual sound to be played if the next rom you used had no sound chip initialisation (most PD roms). This was caused by the sound chips not being reset.

  • Added buffered stereo DAC output
  • seems to work pretty well! The timing is wrong for all games, but it's a start. The output frequency is compensated for and the sample is matched to fit. This stops 44Khz mode playing 4 times faster for example. Tried to add a DAC buffer data count to prevent overflows and overruns, however this introduces a lot of noise...

  • Improved sound mixing, should create less noise and distortion.

  • Added auto pause when focus is lost or the window is minimised.

  • Fixed the communications functions to prevent "Gals Fighters" from complaining about a link error during the menus. However, this has caused a similar problem in "Fatal Fury" on the 1P/2P selection, however, this is far less of a problem.

  • Fixed timer interrupt levels

  • I've fixed saving of the main window location in the registry.

  • Disabled an optimisation in the memory viewer. This has fixed the crashing bug that was occuring when using the shortcuts.

  • The memory viewer now wraps around to 0 after the bios.

  • Allowed the memory viewer to alter the rom data - this makes it easier to test out possible hacks.

  • Added HLE support for 'flash write'. The data isn't saved to disk yet, but the rom is altered and settings are saved beteen resets.

  • Hacked "Sonic Pocket Adventure" to ignore it's flash checksum. It is now possible to proceed past the first level = thanks to Judge_ for help with getting started on that one.

  • Hacked "Metal Slug 2" so that it saves as well.

  • Fixed the DAA instruction , finally!

  • Thanks to Judge_ for the code to do it.
    • Improves "CPU Test by Judge_ (PD)" - passes all tests!
    • Fixes the scores in many games
    • Fixes the betting values in gambling games.
  • Added RLD and RRD instructions.
    • Fixes "Neo Cherry Master Color"
  • Fixed the default hardware window border colour.
    • Improves "Squall (PD)"
  • In the debugger, i've made the two breakpoint values so that they can be copied from, this is more convenient for me when I need to remember a value between sessions.
  • Changed the memory viewer to accept the first 8 digits (previously 6) for both the address targetter and the editor. This makes it easier to cut and paste from the register window.

  • Made the same change to the primary address box, for the same reason.

  • Added colour/greyscale menu option, but it's disabled because the greyscale core hasn't been written yet.

  • Added basic uDMA support, doesn't affect anything ("Fatal Fury", etc);

  • Added DMA state saving, new state version... sorry!

GoodMSX2 0.9992

Rom-omdöparen GoodMSX2 har uppdaterats och känner nu igen 166 olika rommar.


19/7 2002

GoodMSX1 0.9992

Rom-omdöparen GoodMSX1 har uppdaterats och känner nu igen 589 olika rommar.


VirtuaNES 0.68

Efter tre dagar utan några som helst emulator-uppdateringar har äntligen en emulator uppdaterats (YAY). VirtuaNES heter den och är en Japansk NES-emulator.
Nytt är:

  • Correct that a title of PalleteView became PatternView.

  • Correct that there wasn't Drag&Drop of a movie file and a state file.

  • Correct that there wasn't header editing with built-in launcher.

16/7 2002

GoodSNES 0.9995

Rom-omdöparen GoodSNES har uppdaterats och känner igen 37 nya rommar.Tanka ner verktyget hos oss eller i kanalen #rareroms på NewNet (irc.newnet.com).


Nebula 2.19

Nebula har uppdaterats igen.
Nytt är:

  • Added Dragon World 2 (it has some gfx glitches due to some missing parts in the protection emulation)

  • Text layer should now be correctly aligned (it was 1 line too high)

  • CPS2
  • Fixed ssf2xj timing that was still wrong.

  • Fixed small autoanimation problems

  • Added neogeo multislot MVS emulation.

  • Usage:
    • in the rom loading screen, you'll see a dropbox to select in which neogeo slot you want to load the game. Just select the slot and hit load, then after loading a game, you can go and load another in a different (or the same, overriding it) slot. Note that you'll need a lot of RAM to hold all games in memory at the same time. To switch from game to game, use the button mapped as Button 5 in the input options (default key 0) The current bios supports 4 game slots. The default bios config only allows to switch games after inserting a coin. To change it, press F2, go to "set the soft dips", then "setting the cabinet", and change "Game selection" to "Free". Using savestates with multislot games may have unpredictable results. ALWAYS LOAD IN THE 1ST SLOT FIRST.

15/7 2002

Nytt är:

  • 65c816: Optimized portions of the main execution loop

  • SPC700: Optimized portions of the main execution loop, cycle conversions, and timer calculations

  • Memory map: Removed the hack for Mega Man X/Rock Man X, it was mistakenly commented out some time ago, but is no longer needed

RockNES 2.0

Denna förträffliga NES-emulatorn har äntligen uppdaterats igen.
Nytt är:

  • Major source rewrite, fixing tons of problems for listing;

  • New savestate format, smaller and smart, no crashes;

  • PPU frame render slightly optimised/tweaked;

  • PPU and CPU timings work better;

  • Added a fast forward key (maximum speed <-> no framesync);

  • Added a sprite #0 hit patch for mapper #7 too (fix some Tradewest games);

  • Fixed PCM channel, removed hacks, added real-time counter;

  • Removed that Help text from GUI;

  • Config file (rocknes.ini) included to avoid problems;

  • A few mappers may be broken, so please, report them;

  • Compiled with the newest GCC/Allegro;

  • First release, be patient...

NeoPop 0.43

Ännu en release...
Nytt är:

  • Sound quality is now as good as it gets! I've implemented a buffered output after seeing how it was supposed to be done by Pete Bernert and the PeopsSpu team. This approach has made a tremendous improvement.

  • Sample playing is still missing, so you'll have to wait for the 'Sega' at the start of "Sonic Pocket Adventure" and the intro to "Faseli!" too.

  • No core fixes today. Same old bugs!

  • Joystick button names are now used instead of numbers in the config dialog box, this should be more user friendly (and was easier for me than having to re-write the dialog to support any alternative methods). Thanks to Nick K for pointing out that numbers weren't actually helpful!

  • Added a call to yield the CPU when paused, this will hopefully free up wasted system resources. Thanks to JAZ for the suggestion. I've still to add an auto pause option when the emulator looses focus...

  • There are still some sound glitches. I have noticed that sometimes the sound begins to break up. This can be fixed by moving the window around to reinitialise the buffer. Not ideal, but I've not been able to detect where the problem is being generated. I suspect that the breakups are caused by my slow program causing gaps...

  • Optimised both builds by 10%, I still need to do more to match the performance of MGPocket and fix the remaining sound problems.

11/7 2002

NEStron 0.6.1b

En NES-emulator (duh).
Nytt är:

  • Added NES Movie feature
  • Fixed mapper 3 video mirroring bug (sqoon)

  • Fixed a bug in the BRK opcode

  • Added NTSC/PAL speed switching

  • Fixed a bug in sprite 0 detection

  • Fixed mapper 4 graphics bug (Zombie Nation)

  • Fixed VRAM Addressing bug (transition effect of Final Fantasy 1 + 3)

  • The NESticle Palette is now the default palette. To change color palettes, click "Options->Graphics->Color Palettes" and select the desired palette.

VirtuaNES 0.67

En NES-emulator. Nuf said, som man säger på ren svenska.
Nytt är:

  • FDSplugin.dll became needless from a version of this time.
  • Change:
  • Remade a built-in source, a code of a FDS source.

  • Revision:
  • A MMC5 source sounds with a NSF player, and correct that there wasn't.

  • Correct a NSF player playback routine.

NeoPop 0.42

Neo Geo Pocket-emulatorn NeoPop har uppdaterats.
Nytt är:

  • Sound quality has been greatly improved, although there is still some noise present. It is possible to recognise all of the classic theme tunes ("King of Fighters", "Pac-Man" etc), so i'm quite pleased.
  • Sound frequency can be selected from the pop-up menu.

  • The program should be able to cope with machines that don't have a sound card. I haven't tested this fully though
  • if you have no sound card and you get a problem, please e-mail me.

  • A huge number of core optimisations, that aren't worth going into. The only thing to know is that performance is much greater than before! I've removed the performance percentage meter, as it was adding a useless overhead. Most games should run at a fair speed. It doesn't matter if it doesn't hit 100% all the time!

  • Added cycle counting data for almost all of the instructions. Relative timing should be correct now.

  • Improved graphics emulation accuracy by delaying certain registers until the next scanline. This has removed the corruption that was visible in many of the fighting games, among others.

  • Removed the graphics emulation hack that was causing "Fatal Fury" to have an incorrect background colour. It is the only game that i've seen that disables this colour. The implementation should now be correct all of the time.

  • An interrupt is generated if a write to 0xC000 is made by the Z80. Thanks to Ivan for that one. Improves "Sonic" internally, I don't see how though.

  • Set Vertical Interrupt level to 4 (confirmed correct), not 5 as it was. I haven't noticed any differences, but it may have removed some artefacts in rare cases.

  • Completely re-written the input update function as it was some of the oldest and worst code in the whole project. I've switched from the old buffered input method, to a simple state poll every frame. This has eliminated the problems of directions locking when the joystick was moved very quickly, and other annoying issues. (It's also more optimal code)

  • Fixed interpretation and disassembly of "POP.w (mem)", this was caused by a long standing bug in the instruction decoding tables.

    • Fixes "Cool Boarders"
    • Fixes "Sonic Pocket Adventure" (Can't play past first level though)

    • Fixes "NeoGeo Cup '98 Plus Color (JUE)"
  • Added faster, more accurate, decoding of addressing mode: (R32 + R8/R16). This was a problem near the code that caused some special moves in "Gals Fighters" to crash the game. These moves still cause a lock-up, but the real reason is unknown.

  • The debugger is refreshed more often, so the display is always current.

  • Fixed disassmbly of "LD (mem),(nn)" in both byte and word modes.

  • Added all of the remaining software interrupts (SWI) 3,4,5 and 6. Improves "Delta Warp" by adding the blue 'explosion' effect when covering a tile. I haven't noticed any other improvements elsewhere though.

  • The oldest feature on my todo list 'Autofire' has finally been added!

  • Reversed the value when debugging the sound chip volumes. I hope this helps Ivan!

  • Added system language selection (English / Japanese). Changing the option will take effect on the next reset. I didn't want to force a reset because it may only be an accidental change. I don't think this option will be adjusted often. Note: This feature is not connected with the language of the emulator. Configurable language resources will come in a later version. This option was easy to implement, configurable menu / dialog languages won't be so simple for me.

Gens 2.00

Den bästa Sega Mega Drive(Genesis)/32x/Sega CD-emulatorn Gens har blivit uppdaterad till version 2.00 med en mängd roliga nyheter.
Nytt är:

  • SH2 CPU emulation (custom ASM core) :

Nebula 2.18a

En liten uppdatering till gårdagens release.
Nytt är:

  • Fixed mslug3nd driver crashing nebula.

  • Fixed kof99d driver. now it loads the decrypted C roms instead of the prototype roms.

So I've added a disclaimer that you must accept if you agree with all the points to be legally entitled to use nebula.
