When Great Minds Combine
This isn’t my WIP, but the progress made in the last few days has been fascinating to watch.
ElSemi and Ernesto Corvi have been bouncing mails around for the past couple of days, trying to make sense of the Model 2/2A TGP programs without the aid of any documentation. I think the results speak for themselves. (Note, these are Nebula M2 shots, NOT MAME)
I may add a few shots of other titles later, but I’m sure this WIP will bring some smiles even without.
Congratulations to ElSemi and Ernesto on this progress.
*edit* Desert Tank — apparently has some problems with the collisions still
*edit2* Sky Target — camera goes upside down sometimes
Eine neue Version des Multi Arcade Emulators FiNaL BuRn EvOLuTioN ist erschienen.
New version of the Final Burn Evolution I contend several bugs corrected, new options and most important, COMPLETE emulation of plate CPS2, without no type of hack or XOR, following faithful the original hardware and with Brazilian support to all the ROMs of the games of the Capcom, valley the penalty to confer. It sees what it moved:
Removed the default overclocking on games - It's better to follow the real hardware as this causes bugs...
Fixed graphics bug on "Lansquenet 2004"
Fixed bug on "SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom" and clones
Added "Jyangokushi - haoh no saihai (990527 Japan)"
Updated ROMs on "sf2m8.zip" and "wof3sja.zip"
Fixed ROMs on "[4 Players]" sets
Added "Darkstalkers - The Night Warriors (940705 USA, Phoenix)"
Fixed bug on "Rainbow Island"
Fixed bug on "Prehistoric Isle in 1930"
Added "Thunder Heroes"
Added the new Misc. drivers from the latest FBA (BH) 0.2.96.61 - Thanks to Treble Winner
Added the following games:
Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars
Thanks to Treble Winner for the drivers
Re-added support for Windows 9x versions
Added "Save CPS2 XORs" option - This option will allow you to save your own XOR files from all the CPS2 games, generated by the emulator using the real decryption code
Added a checkbox for Psikyo games
Added a checkbox for Sega games
Removed "Invoke debugger..." option
Added support to cheat files from M.A.M.E and Nebula / Kawaks - Thanks to iq_132 for the code
Changed the player descriptions in the input dialog (Player 0 becomes Player 1, etc.) - Thanks to Treble Winner for the code
Re-added 3x Punch and 3x Kick macro for CPS fighting games (they don't cause de-sync on games)
Fixed loss of frames during in-game chat
*Special thanks to Avens, jackchatelet and Zechs Marquise for the help on finding these bugs
PS: If your graphics card is too old and doesn't support the "Direct3D 7" blitter, download Final Burn Evolution (DirectDraw) 3.04 at SNK-NeoFighters.com forums. Download it only if your VGA doesn't support it, otherwise stick with this version.
Zum in JAVA geschriebenen Vectrex Emulator ParaJVE gibt es folgende WIP News:
What have I been up to recently, concerning ParaJVE? Well, lots of small things have been done, that may not necessarily shows right now, but that will come in handy in the future. Most notably:
Fixed a couple of bugs in the emulator's memory mapping :
Before, if the emulated program accessed an area of memory that does not exist on the real Vectrex, the emulator's VM would terminate execution - with a self explanatory "invalid memory access" exception, mind you ;)
It appears that the Vectrex is quite relaxed regarding these accesses, so I finally redirected all the nonexistent memory address space to a NullMemory handler that returns 0 on reads, and discards writes.
Fixed a stupid bug where the emulated program could write into a read-only address space (ROM and CARTRIDGE areas) - Yes, there are ROMs around that have bugs causing this kind of behaviour ;) ... Needless to say, this was fixed in 2 minutes once the problem has been diagnosed.
Which leads us to the next point...
As I needed some kind of tool that would allow an easier diagnosis of crashes in the emulated program, I implemented a back-trace feature, along with its GUI.
When back-trace recording is enabled (slows down the emulation a bit on "not-so-fast" computers), any crash in the VM immediately opens the back-trace window, that shows the history of executed instructions, along with the registers/stack content.
In the end this module will also make a neat debugging addition (coupled with other stuff like breakpoints) when I'll start to implement a vectrex developer debug toolbox in ParaJVE.
Since the overlays rendering obviously appears way too dark, I started to try and make my own versions (Starting from an opaque picture of the overlay, I'm creating a picture made of several layers with different transparency).
The few ones I completed look much better, so it sounds like I'll finally have to make them all (which is very time consuming, as I'm not that proficient in using GIMP) - Thus this task has been postponed...
The next version will include the games documentations, whose browsing will be triggered by a menu in the emulator... Thus I had to convert all the text docs into HTML. After having converted one by hand, I figured out rather quickly that it would be much more easy if this was performed by an automated program instead ;)
Hence the conversion tool was coded in a rush, and all the HMTL documentations are now ready for inclusion. Maybe I will add them as standalone download package as well, since some people may be interested in grabbing these HTML docs alone.
I've started to ask several homebrew authors if I could include their games in the next version, and they kindly agreed -- so expect Thrust from Ville Krumlinde, Nebula Commander and Revector from Craig Aker to be embedded in the next packaging.
As a consequence, I made a few modifications to the configuration file to support new information about the available games (release date and version, author's name and homepage URL, documentation path, and so on). Of course, the game selection dialog will display these pieces of information, but it's not implemented yet.
Last but not least, I lately started to work seriously on the sound emulation (based on a C source form MESS/MAME).
I now have something that is roughly working, outside of ParaJVE (The sound "commands" & time stamps were previously recorded within ParaJVE, so that they can be played back later by the offline sound emulation routines).
But for unknown reasons, the sound routines stop to work correctly as soon as they are embedded in the emulator. It seems that I'm having timing/threads problems again, but it needs more investigations.
And to finish, just an additional remark :
I am well aware of the FPS problem that plagues the current version (eg. The FPS counter displays 60, but the games runs like it's 80 or even more). Although I don't consider it to be a top priority task at the moment, I'll eventually try and fix that sooner or later. :)
