gpSP4Symbian v0.6.1

Posted: September 16, 2010 in Emulator

EmuCR:gpSP4SymbiangpSP4Symbian v0.6.1 is released. gpSP4Symbian is a Gameboy Advance emulator (GBA) for Symbian S60 3rd edition.This emulator is based on gpSP. It also uses SDL port by Anotherguest. 

the gpSP is a gameboy advance emulator originally written by Exophase. And now it’s ported to the Symbian OS!

This version adds an experimental audio into the gpsp. The audio is pretty much behind from the action, but it still can create quite nice mood for RPG-games.

How to get good audio:
At least with some games it seems that the emulator can not buffer enough when the audio is set “ON” when loading a ROM. If the audio is clicking badly you should set the audio OFF and click continue. Now the emulator will have some time to buffer some audio 🙂 After a while you can switch the audio back into ON position again.
EmuCR:gpSP4SymbiangpSP mainview

What’s new:
* Experimental audio

know issues:
* It’s a gpsp port, so see the gpsp compatibility list before complaining about non-working ROMs
* Audio is not yet implemented (I’m waiting for new Qt release with QAudio implementation)
* loading the state freezes the emulator in some games ( don’t worry, the batterysave still works)
* the emulator crashes if you try to load a ROM without setting the BIOS
* there are some limitations in the ZIP file support, so maybe you have to upzipt the ROMs
* The ZIP files seem to be eating quite a lot of RAM, so If ROM doesn’t work, try extracting it.
* Samsung blit fails when “keep aspect ratio” is ticked off
* The audio is quite much behind from the action

ZIP limitations
* WinZip
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (PPMd) format WILL NOT work.
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (bzip2) format WILL NOT work
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (Enhanced Deflate) format WILL NOT run
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Normal format WILL run
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Fast format WILL run.
* Roms ziped in the WinZip Super Fast format WILL run.
* Roms ziped in the WinZip None format WILL run.

Same process as with the AntSnes:

1. First Install Qt 4.6.3 binaries into your phone
Nokia users can just download and install this Download Qt installation package
2. Download the gpsp4symbian.sis
3. gpsp4Symbian requires the SWEvent capability. The SwEvent is required for key mapping: Now you can map call/end call etc. buttons for the gpsp usage. Therefore the following step is required to install the SW.

Go to SymbianSigned and sign the gpsp4Symbian.sis for your own phone IMEI
using free Open Signed Online option this operation should be free of any charge.
Read carefully the instructions on the SymbianSigned site.
You must give them

* Your Phone IMEI (you can obtain it digiting *#06# on your phone)
* Your EMAIL Address
* gpsp4Symbian SIS Package

And then the symbiansigned should email you the signed gpsp4Symbianfor your phone. This package will be installable ONLY on your phone. This procedure works for all Symbian S60V5 Phones. I had also to change to date on the phone into yesterday to get it working..

Posted: September 16, 2010 in Emulator

EmuCR:WinUAEWinUAE v2.3.0 Beta 17 is released.Winuae is the commodore amiga emulator for Windows. WinUAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don’t know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680×0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provide very good graphics and sound capabilities. Its first incarnation, the A1000, appeared in 1985, followed by the highly successful A500 and A2000 models. WinUAE is a port of the originally written for Unixish systems UAE; but over time, it seems the Windows port, WinUAE has become the best version available on any platform. WinUAE is free software: you are welcome to distribute copies of it and/or modify it, under certain conditions. There is no warranty of any kind for UAE. For more details concerning these issues, please read the GNU General Public License, which describes the terms under which WinUAE is distributed.

WinUAE v2.3.0 Beta 17 changelog:
– removed duplicate “none” in filter list
– RTD also missed address error check
– MMU emulation bus error handler uses C++ exceptions again (like in original Aranym version), removed some not so useful forced inlining, smaller executable.
– decided to disable some MMU table caching and suddenly NetBSD crash disappeared, MMU emulation is probably much slower now but at least it seems to work until proper fix is found, (hopefully Aranym developers have some ideas) Debian 68k Sarge Linux confirmed working now
– right border color “glitch” when waiting for hpos<7 in copper list broke in b3
– only disable Direct3D9Ex if pixel shader support is < 2.0
– do not open files smaller than blocksize (512 bytes) as a hardfile
– hardfile dialog accepts dragged and dropped files

EmuCR:JPcspJpcsp SVN r1766 is released. JPCSP is a PlayStation Portable(PSP) emulator which is written in JAVA. JPCSP is the first PSP emulator that is written in JAVA. Most people think java is too slow. But Shadow and his team has proven us wrong. The newest Java versions are almost as fast as C which makes it very interesting for emu dev’s. Shadow and his team are working day and night with pleasure on the emu, many coders have dedicated to the project. Because it’s written in java many young devs find it interesting to learn how the emulator works. 

Jpcsp SVN changelog:
Cleaned up and improved sceMpeg module.
Added small new finding to sceSasCore and fixed a few typos.
Properly fixed sceUmdUser module.
