BGB v1.5.10 released!

  • 389
  • 0
BGB v1.5.10 is released. BGB is a gameboy emulator which runs on Windows.

Features:
emulation of the GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and Super Gameboy
accurate emulation of the hardware, based on research with lots of test roms, useful for debugging/rom development. some highlights:
clock exact timing of LCD behavior/state changes
realistic initial ram values - random but with specific bit patterns, and simulated values left by bootroms (for example "nibbler (pd)" depends on this)
accurate emulation of LCD register writes during scanline (prehistorik man, demotronic demo)
emulation of inaccessible VRAM and OAM as on real hardware
10 sprites per line limit
clock exact emulation of sprites causing mode 3 to take longer
correct memory access timing (access happening at the last/second to last clock of an opcode)
accurate emulation of the differences between DMG and GBC, including timing differences, differences in hardware behavior, initial state, etc.
can run a GBC rom as on a DMG, and a...

RetroArch v1.12.0 released!

  • 405
  • 0
RetroArch v1.12.0 is released. RetroArch is a multi-system emulator for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and *BSD. It is formerly known as SSNES. Its design and background is quite different than most other emulators as RetroArch does not implement an emulation core itself. RetroArch talks to libretro, a generic emulator core API. This means that RetroArch is core agnostic, and it does not care which emulator core is running.

Currently there are libretro implementations for systems such as SNES, NES, GBA, GB/GBC, Genesis, and even arcade games (Final Burn Alpha).

libretro isn't only usable for emulators. A preliminary port of an open source reimplementation of Cave Story has been ported to libretro as well.

RetroArch believes in modularity. The application itself is a command-line driven application suitable for HTPC and/or headless use. There also exists a GUI frontend for RetroArch, supporting every single config option available in RetroArch...

Raine v0.94.7 released!

  • 368
  • 0
Raine v0.94.7 is released. RAINE is an Emulator for Arcade games. Raine is a M68000 and M68020 arcade game emulator. Raine emulates some M68000 and M68020 arcade games and is mainly focused on Taito and Jaleco games hardware. It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. Raine can emulate many nice games now, and new games (previously unemulated) are appearing weekly.

There was a big bug related to cheats in 0.94.6, some games lost most of their cheats because of it, so that's the main fix of this version, and if you don't use them you can skip this update if you like ! Still about cheats the mouse didn't work in the cheats dialog and for some reason it took more than 1 year to get noticed, I know I use mainly the keyboard in raine, but it's strange nobody reported it earlier ! And the new kof clones get some cheats too.

Except that mer-curious continued his quest to fix the texts of the interface, since I didn't update...

Rokuyon - An experimental N64 emulator released!

  • 2
My main goal with rokuyon is to learn about the Nintendo 64 hardware so I can write homebrew like sodium64. If it ends up being more than that... I wouldn't mind making a modern, accurate N64 emulator with built-in software/hardware rendering and no messy plugins.

Kyty v0.2.0 released!

  • 341
  • 0
Kyty PS4/PS5 Emulator
Unlike Spine, this one works on Windows and is specifically designed for Windows 10 64-bit. But, as I have already said, it is in the very early stage of development, as mentioned in the GitHub page. Infact, the very first version of the emulator was only released 2 days ago.

As for the games that work, the developer himself says that for now, only a few simple PS4 games will work. Coming to the PS5 emulation part, he says graphics hasn’t been implemented properly. So, PS5 emulation with Kyty has a long journey ahead.

Changelog:

It is possible to run some simple games for PS4 and homebrews for PS5
There maybe graphics glitches, crashes, freezes and low FPS. It's OK for now.
