Kega Fusion v3.64

Whats New ?

-----------

I'm making this unplanned release, because things never go as planned, and

all my stuff is going to be in storage for a while (again). Due to that

thing they call 'real life' I have probably forgotten most of what I've

changed since the last build, and there may be stuff I have only partially

implemented and forgotten about.

But I'll list what I remember, and I'm sure you guys (and girls) will find

stuff I forgot about, or broke - because you rock.

Most of what I've done is by user request. PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF ANY MAJOR

PROBLEMS IMMEDIATELY.

* Swapped SMS buttons

* Added an option (that I couldn't think of a suitable name for) to show

the full SMS area when running GG games

* Fixed a couple of non-working SMS games (auto disable of some features,

e.g. YM2413, which would cause them to crash if present)

* Fixed some other minor SMS issues

* GG games that are really SMS games in a GG cart should now auto boot in

SMS mode

* A couple of 32X tweaks that will only matter to homebrew coders currently

* Fixed a couple of SegaCD games that didn't boot/run - if you find any

more, please do let me know - as far as I know, there are none

* Command line with -scd or -mcd and no filename will now cause Fusion to

start up in 'Boot SegaCD' mode

* Added support for the (pretty useless) SF7000 floppy disk interface for

the SC3000 - you need the SF7000 IPL ROM for this to work

* SC3000 keyboard can now be enabled from the options menu

* A few sound tweaks

Regular scheduled programming will resume as soon as possible.

Snake.

Yabause 0.9.13, and 10 years !?!

December 15, 2013 • CyberWarriorX • Release, Site

So we’re back again with another big release! it also happens to be Yabause’s 10th anniversary this year(as of September) so more things to celebrate!

10 reasons to enjoy this version of Yabause:

Working Netlink emulation over LAN/internet
CD audio emulation fixes
Support for mdf/mds (version 1) dumps
CD+G
GDB stub
Saturn mouse and 3D control pad
Awesome new SH2 debugging features
More user-friendly interface
At least 0.0.1 more than any previous version
And of course, better overall emulation

Also, if you want to help contribute to the cause, there’s plenty you can do, and it doesn’t even require programming knowledge!

We need Translators!
We need documentation improvements!
If that doesn’t suit you, how about a $10.10 donation to celebrate our 10th year?

You guys should really post these as new threads so that they appear on the front page.

As an aside, we (IceDigger and I) should really get a download section going so we can host downloads for some of this stuff.
