EmuMaster 0.2.1

The new version with the beauty landscape mode and megadrive/megacd emulation is now available at the Nokia Store.
Mega emulation is based on PicoDrive, but many parts have been rewritten. MegaCD emulation uses built-in mp3 decoders.
The bilinear filtering is now supported - added as an option, default off. It has no visible impact on performance (1fps drop at most), so feel free to enable it globally if you want.

Full changelog:
0.2.1:
* audio enable/disable global option
* splash added
* genesis/megadrive/megacd support
* landscape support
* bilinear filtering
* better search
* restart confirmation dialog to prevent accidental pushing on restart button
* keyboard configured as pad-a by default
* do not clear screen if fullscreen is forced
* [bug] fullscreen option didn't work as expected - fixed
* [bug] keyboard conf - l1/r1 has been reversed with start/select
* [bug] l2/r2 has same values as l1/r1 - fixed
* [bug] if games have different extensions they are incorrectly sorted in disk gallery - fixed
* [bug] mulitplayer don't work in psx - fixed
* [bug] strange sixaxis animation when identifying - fixed
More which I don't remember.

 Now I will freeze the set of emulated systems for some time (unless someone pay a huge donation for what he want). There are guys wanting N64 emulation and they donating right now, more info in the thread at maemo forum. I will make the current set of emulated systems as good as possible. There are plenty of bugs waiting for a fix and some new features to implement.
Motivate me with a donation.

It has big improvements to previous release, main changes:
  • amiga emulation
  • completely redesigned ui
  • sixaxis support
  • global/local settings
  • favourites category

    Now I am worknig on fast dynamic recompilation, which will speed up things. I am also looking forward for sixaxis support (not only in-game support, but through all software so you could connect your phone to TV, leg on bed and use EmuMaster with pad :). Build for N900 will come. I know there is a lack of loading compressed roms - on the way.

    EmuMaster

    The aim of EmuMaster project is to emulate popular consoles like NES, SNES, GB, C64 and more. I know that there is a lot of emulators out there. But what I saw is they are not so easy to use or lack some cool features. So I decided to bring my ideas to the world of emulation. I have started with NES but there will be more. The most important thing now is to let you know how I see an emulator should look like. I hope you will like it (if yes please donate). Sorry for my poor english.

    Video:

    Screenshots:



    In Game Home Screen Icons
    Rom Gallery Fast Scroll
    Add Home Screen Icon Dialog Save/Load Gallery
    Video Settings View Game Genie Codes

    Features:
    • written entirely in Qt and QML (even cpu,ppu, etc. is written in Qt)
    • modular architecture to minimize memory use (e.g. mappers are in seperate plugins) and speed up loading
    • ROM gallery
    • fast scroll
    • you are able to create an icon in the homescreen, and with auto save/load you will not even notice you are using an emulator
    • swipe is disabled by default - configurable
    • support for game genie codes
    • quite fast NES emulation - full framerate without sound (60 FPS) - will be optimized
    • save/load gallery
    • you can push two buttons on the pad with one finger at the time (e.g. A and B)

    Todo:
    • I don't know how to make icons in the homescreen removable - please help
    • settings are not saved yet
    • game policy
    • currently when you click play new windows and machine is created, it takes time (especially when you click pause first time). In order to minimize this time I will reimplement this mechanism so only disk will be reloaded (it should be done this way from beginning)
    • accelerometer as a controller
    • mappers 72-255
    • on-screen paddle controller (e.g. arkanoid)
    • on-screen zapper controller (e.g. duck hunts)
    • use accelerometer at the save's view and rom gallery
    • more consoles: GB, SNES, C64, Amiga, ...
    • net play
    • want more ? want somthing sooner than other ? add a comment and please donate

    Issues:
    • I know some games don't work, if you find some and you want them to work let me know, I am checking constantly what work, what not but if you let me know I can prioritize it
    • sometimes application can crash on pause - will be fixed
    • found bug ? please tell me about it
