  • Ootake 2.11

    What's new...
    - The number of "Numbered Save State" has been increased to 50 places. Save from #21 to #50 is possible by "File->Save State another II" menu. And, "File->Load State another II" menu was added for loading.
    - The operation when the CD-Read made an error was brought close to a real machine. In the ACT4 of "Valis IV", the problem that the voice was not occasionally correctly played was solved.
    - The processing of the vertical display beginning position decision has been improved. In "Popful Mail", the problem that one surface line of the screen has disappeared (generated from v2.08) was solved.
    - The speed and timing were elaborately brought close to a real machine. In "Uchuu Senkan Yamato" and "Ys IV", etc., I think that I approached a real machine by the timing of the image and the voice generation.
    - Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.

  • bsnes 0.45

    Here's what's new since 0.43...
    Full SA-1 support, with no known issues. All 26 games have been tested...include[s] Super Mario RPG, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Kirby Super Star and Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius.

    The SA-1 is essentially four times faster than the SNES' main CPU, so system requirements will be very high for these games. For example, on an E8400 @ 3.0GHz, the average is ~160fps in ordinary games. But for SA-1 emulation, this drops to ~90fps, with the worst case being ~80fps.

    The following features are emulated:
    -5a22 CPU core (bus-cycle accurate)
    -Memory access timing
    -SA-1 -> S-CPU interrupts (IRQ + CHDMA IRQ)
    -S-CPU -> SA-1 interrupts (IRQ + Timer IRQ + DMA IRQ + NMI)
    -SIV / SNV interrupt vector selection
    -Timer unit (linear and H/V)
    -Super MMC unit (ROM + BW-RAM)
    -BS-X flash cart slot mapping
    -Normal DMA
    -Character-conversion 1 DMA (2bpp + 4bpp + 8bpp)
    -Character-conversion 2 DMA (2bpp + 4bpp + 8bpp)
    -BW-RAM virtual bitmap mode (2bpp + 4bpp)
    -Arithmetic unit (multiplication + division + cumulative sum)
    -Variable-length bit processing (fixed and auto increment)

    While the following features are not currently emulated, mostly due to lack of information:
    -SA-1 bus conflict delays
    -Write protection (BW-RAM + I-RAM)
    -SA-1 CPU priority for DMA transfers
    -DMA access timing

    Also, fixed a crashing bug in S-DD1 games (Star Ocean, Street Fighter Alpha 2), and a video issue in games using the WAI instruction. - Fangface

  •    Wednesday, April 15th 2009 - Last updated @ 17:27 EST

  • Stella 2.7.6

    What's new...
    * Added support for 'EF' bankswitching (Paul Slocum Homestar Runner), as well as auto-detection of this format.
    * Added support for 'EFSC' bankswitching, as well as auto-detection of this format. This is similar to the 'EF' scheme, but also includes 128 bytes SuperChip RAM.
    * Added autodetection for '0840' and 'SB' bankswitching formats.
    * Improved autodetection for 'UA' bankswitching format.
    * Fixed bug in selecting video modes larger than the current screen; the resulting video mode will now be the largest one available (previously it selected the smallest one available).
    * The currently selected CPU register now displays its value in decimal and binary (in addition to hex) in the debugger.

  • Ootake 2.10

    What's new...
    - The speed and timing were elaborately brought close to a real machine. In "Cyber Dodge", the problem that the screen occasionally took the shape when beginning to play a game (generated by a recent version) was solved. In the Level-8 stage of "Prince of Persia", the problem that the upper part of the screen has fallen into disorder was solved. In the start demo of "Private Idol", the problem that the upper part of the screen occasionally flickered was solved.
    - Processing that decided the horizontal display beginning position was corrected. In "Dragon Knight with Graffiti", when changing to the setting that displays a right and left over scanning area, the problem that the display had swerved to the right a little was solved.
    - In the title screen of "Princess Maker 2", after the start demo, the problem that an extra semicircle display had remained was solved.
    - At the window mode, in the game that automatically connects the mouse ("Lemmings" etc.), when the F1 key is pushed (reset function), the trouble to which the game screen area had occasionally flickered was corrected.

  • NeoRaine 1.2.6

    What's new...
    * There was again a bug in the crc calculation of the cache, which prevented neoraine to load a file it should have loaded from the game in some cases. Since I really had too many bugs of this kind, I completely disabled the optimization and thus fixed this bug for good this time. You should get much more reliable savegames now, especially with games which load tons of files like king of fighters. (It also affects normal play, when loading files between rounds).
    * See raine 0.51.5 changelog for generic changes in this version (gui, double bufer, etc...).
    - Fangface

  • Raine 0.51.5

    What's new...
    * Fix the bad display of initial screen when using a low resolution in ms windows
    * console: After 100 traces (step, next, etc...), we had a very nice buffer overflow. It's fixed now...
    * F3 now displays wether the save slot is free or the date and time of the savegame if it's already used (default key for next save slot)
    * Now the console calls automatically m68kdis when it needs disassembling. It has a cache system to keep the process very fast, and it's much more convinient than calling it manually from outside raine.
    * When running a game from the command line in fullscreen with yuv overlays enabled, windows was producing a very psychadelic screen at start, which could crash some systems (vista...). It's now fixed (windows specific).
    * double buffer : the option gets a new setting in the video option dialog : "Even with overlays" to force double buffer when using yuv overlays. The default in the previous versions was to force double buffer as much as possible, but it was producing some bad things with overlays on some setups (screen flickering, emulation slowing down...). So unless you absolutely want to force double buffer, leave this option on its default value: "when possible", it should improve yuv overlays.

  • Future Pinball is a real time Pinball Development System. It allows you to design and play your very own pinball simulation in True real time 3D. It uses Advanced Physics to provide the best possible Simulation of a true to life pinball machine. Simulated versions of classic pinball games have been created and many can be found at IR Pinball.

  • Happy 10th Birthday Retrogames!

    - TheInformer

  • RG Turns 10 :) - What a perfect anniversary to forget, eh? Retrogames turned 10 a few days ago and although emulation itself has slowed down quite a bit over the years, playing Daytona Arcade on my laptop is very nice :D God, that game took some money from me, back in the day.

    Thanks to YOU, for still visiting our site after all this time and thanks to a dedicated staff for keeping RG updated. And small note to JoseQ: check your mail.

    Game Ooooooooooooon :P - atila

  • ProSystem 1.3d

    - Distinct 1 button and 2 button joystick modes are now properly emulated (riot.cpp)
    - SWCHB is now writable allowing games to toggle the button mode (memory.cpp)
