hi ;)

just download this:


you will see that it is not a Nes emu but a Atari 7800 emu :)

i will try to find more emus missing :)


September 18th, 2004, 22:08
how come it says source and not binary?

September 19th, 2004, 02:09
whoops fixed the page

any that are missing would be great

Pacmaniaz *> slow old
Zerowing * > slow old
Cabal * *> control problems old
Solomons Key Last beta was fullspeed and sound but even i have lost it may have to redo it sga/nes SE style like blades later on. These are missing because they were not that good only solomons key the last beta was ok but your talking very old stuff i dont think really worth keeping. up to 2 years old that stuff.

Funvision i ported is fullspeed and sound but only keyboard support there was no intrest in a complete port so i droped it. Games are hard to get there was about 20 games and it will run colec-games with some source hacking.

fbzxDC has some pretty hard file loading commands that were needed to be re-write *it's fully working multi spectrum emu. if these were fixed it be ok but right now it only runs the spectrum bios but you can recompile it to one game etc and it runs very well.

Problem there is a complete 128k spectrum emu now again so there was no point on finshing that port.

Some other emus for dc as well amstrad for example it's way to slow.

Ian, How about updatign teh System 16 emu with The new 68K cores? That will really help the speed?

September 20th, 2004, 09:44
are there any more emus from the mess source, even if the system is relatively unknown that can be ported at a resonable speed?

September 20th, 2004, 21:45
Yeah many can be done BBC vic20 etc work ok. Lot of systems using mess that could be released. System16 emu with c68k would be fullspeed. Im working on including that in mame in the future or the fame sh4 asm core looks very promising for mame base drivers.

September 20th, 2004, 23:30
give me a Turbo graphics 16 emulator with full speed and sound and I would not bug no one no more.

September 21st, 2004, 09:39
gimme TG16 emu or I'll keep bugging DemoniusX til the end of time ;D

So will the outdated SGA emus be taken down? Stuff like this isn't representive for Ian's abilities or the Dreamcast anymore...

btw: Expanded Nester should go under NesterDC 6.0 / NesterDC 7.1...


September 21st, 2004, 09:56
and Expanded Nester DC is without cd swap support.

BTW. I have two ver of nester - 60 and 7.1 - on 6.0 working Contra Force an Zen Intergalactic Ninja

When NesterDC SE eventually sees a release, it should be able to supercede all previous NesterDC releases. But in the meantime, it is handy to have access to 6.0 and 7.1.

Anyway, I don't think you should remove outdated SGAs unless they have better versions or work better in a multi-game pack like WOW.

ill keep every emu as a matter of history

but hopefully we will have ratings to tell people which are the best emus for each system

September 22nd, 2004, 19:38
On my own site any thing i do better removes the last version but keeping old stuff is fine just put old on it or some thing

September 23rd, 2004, 14:28
Yeah, how about a TG16/PCE Emulator with full sound and new graphics options. This was THE most impressive console of its day, this little beauty was a work of genius. And this coming from a life long sega/nintendo nut, yeah I loved my nes, speccy and MS like brothers, but the PCE was the Daddy

Yes this is more along the lines of what I was saying. Don't throw anything working (no matter how poorly) away until you've got a replacement. ;) Good for emulation AND automotive applications. ;D

I did find on DC Reload unless it is a different emulator but i thought i seen a Commodore Plus 4 emu.

October 3rd, 2004, 20:22
I've been updating Consolevision's emulators, and I noticed one you don't have: Handy DC.


October 3rd, 2004, 23:41
Yeah manly because it has no control support and takes 3 mins to load a game. I was the one to compile it when asked it was only meant to be a dev release from CHN..

I was the one to compile it when asked it was only meant to be a dev release from CHN..Heh, actually I took 30 seconds out of my time to compile the one on Consolevision, as I couldn't find a compiled version anywhere. :P

But, if DCEmu.co.uk has BeebEm DC, then they might as well have Handy DC, as they're both source only releases.

True If you want i can send you a PVR DMA video file for it. Still not useable CPU timing is off still takes up to 2 to 3 mins to load a rom..

October 4th, 2004, 12:22
ive got another 6 emus to post but im so busy :(
