SNEeSe 0.841
Snes emu, heres whats new:
    Sound:
  • Fixed a flaw in the order of operations in sample volume multiplication, causing a slight improvement in sound accuracy
  • Fixed a bug which caused attack rate 15 to be far too slow
  • Fixed bugs in sustain and release which could cause ENVX to underflow
  • Improved timing accuracy of direct envelope height setting mode

    SPC700:
  • Fixed a bug in the MUL YA opcode which caused it to not update flags
  • Fixed a bug in the POP PSW which caused the direct page base address to not be updated
  • Corrected POP PSW to allow changing of B flag, and PUSH PSW to reflect its current state
  • Corrected a bug in updating of H flag by SBC, and some bugs in updating of flags in ADDW and SUBW, and potentially in INCW and DECW; thanks to Overload for some of the related research

    Render:
  • Corrected handling of writes to BG offset registers and mode 7 matrix registers, thanks to anomie for research

    Source:
  • Fixed some issues in the source which caused problems building on Linux, thanks to Jonathan Gevaryahu for pointing this out
    (b>0.84 [TRAC]
    Source:
  • Fixed a flaw that caused problems during linking
  • Fixed a bug in the makefile that caused 'make clean' to not remove the binary

    SPC700:
  • Fixed a bug in the timing of timer 2
  • Fixed a bug in the timing of SPC700 opcode execution
  • Fixed a bug affecting all of the SPC700 timers, causing the delay needed for cases where the timer target is set previous to the current position to only be applied in all cases where it was not needed
  • Rewrote entire core, replacing it with a cycle-based core written in C; helps Tales of Phantasia and games by Enix
  • Corrected timer counter registers to not be reset on write, and corrected most write opcodes to read first, thanks to anomie for research confirming this theory

bsnes v0.008
Snes emu, heres whats new:
    By moving the window + main color window clipping into the bg/oam/mode7 rendering routines themselves, I was able to greatly simplify the most complicated part of rendering: the final pass where color add/sub effects are applied. As a result, the new PPU core is not only ~35% faster (on graphics intensive screens, even faster on simpler screens), but more accurate as well. Awesome.
    In celebration, I'm releasing bsnes v0.008. I can actually run all games I have at >60fps on my Athlon 1.67ghz PC. Probably not something to brag about, though ...
    Oh, and I also updated the keyboard polling code to only capture keypresses if the main window has focus. I've been meaning to do this for the better part of a year now, but never got around to it.
    If, for some reason, you still want to use the old renderer, you can uncomment the first line in src/ppu/bppu/bppu.h and recompile the emulator yourself. Or you can use v0.007a, I'll leave it up for a bit.
