    Heres a reason why homebrewers and hackers are actually good for old commercial games, heres a release of the old black and white Mario Land 2 on the Gameboy boosted with colours and the slowdowns are gone, amazing work, heres the release info:

    Merry Christmas!
    This hack turns Super Mario Land 2, one of the best GameBoy platformers, into a fully colorized GameBoy Color game. Luigi has also been included as a playable character with his own physics.
    It’s been completely done in ASM so it works on real hardware. Additionally, this hack uses GBC’s extra CPU, so all the slowdowns found in the original game are gone.

    2. Nintendo 3DS News

    For Nintendo 3DS/2DS owners who have homebrew capabilities, heres a great release of a new NES Emulator for the console, heres the release notes:

    VirtuaNES for 3DS v1.01 is released. This is a port of VirtuaNES to 3DS as an alternative to existing NES emulators. It used to be considered one of the best emulators before FCE and Nestopia, and it runs quite fast for lower spec-ed computers (at the cost of some emulation accuracy). But because of that, the Old 3DS / 2DS is able to benefit from this fast running emulator core. This runs full speed on an old 3DS / 2DS with support for tonnes of mappers. Although it doesn't support every single mapper, the library of games that can run on this are probably fairly huge already.

    VirtuaNES for 3DS Changelog:
    v1.01:
    - Fixed cheats (previously cheats couldn't be activated whatever you did)
    - Fixed mapper problem in Kabuki Quantum Fighter

    v1.00
    - Added key mappings to fast forward (capped at 180 FPS), and open the emulator menu.
    - Updated configuration menu
    - Added feature to auto-save state
    - Migrated and fixed some mappers from VirtuaNESEx (thanks to the authors of VirtualNESEx)
    - The following mappers are fixed/added: 4, 7, 16, 23, 34, 47, 49, 52, 65, 69, 71, 73, 74, 86, 91, 92, 121, 132, 141, 148, 150, 162, 163, 166, 167, 168, 169, 170, 171, 172, 173, 174, 175, 176, 177, 178, 179, 189, 190, 194, 198, 199, 212, 235, 237, 240, 241, 252
    - Fixed VS mapper for Super Mario Bros
    - Added ability to map any 3DS key to insert coin for VS games
    - Fixed Lagrange Point VRC7 emulation for the Old 3DS by playing at 20KHz. The old 3DS was too slow to render sounds at 32KHz or even at 22KHz.
    - Minor optimizations for sound generation.
    - A number of games are fixed due to the mapper updates. Examples are: Crisis Force (Japan), Feng Yun (Ch), San Guo Zhi (Ch), and many others.

    The Dos Emulator for Windows has been updated, if you can find the old games, mainly via abandonware sites youll get the chance to play some of the greatest games of all time, heres the release notes:

    DOSBox-X (2017/12/22) is released. DOSBox-x is a branch of DOSBox v0.74. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD.

    DOSBox-X Changelog:
    Directories on the host that contain a file who's name is non-representable in the guest no longer cause directory enumeration to fail entirely, all representable files will show up
    SDL 2 builds now use a different filename for the saved mapper file
    SDL 2 builds: mapper interface now responds to touchscreen as well as mouse
    "Overlay" output removed, there's no point to having it
    Added WinPCAP headers, which also enables NE2000 emulation for Windows builds if WinPCAP is installed.

    2. Virtual Boy News

    The Xmas releases are coming, heres a new version of the Virtual Boy Emulator Rustal Boy, heres the release info:

    Rustual Boy is a Virtual Boy emulator. It can be used to play existing Virtual Boy games, as well as be a helpful development/debugging tool for homebrew for this platform. The name "Rustual Boy" is a portmanteau of the words "Rust" and "Virtual Boy". Ok, the "Virtual Boy" part was obvious, but why "Rust"? In fact, Rustual Boy is written in the Rust programming language - a "systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety." Rust is a wonderful language with a thriving community, and as such provides a fantastic platform for an emulation project!

    Rustual Boy v0.2.0a Changlog:




    For Windows

    Heres another great release for Snes homebrew fans and rememeber that you can play Snes Homebrew on any Snes Emulator for any system:

    Merry Christmas everyone! We here at D-D always try our best to give you a holiday ROM goodie, and this year we even made our Christmas release window! Santa says he hopes you like this little gem just in time for Christmas 2017!
    Princess Minerva is a really interesting game. You control a squad of nine female warriors trying to stop a another group of female warriors from turning every young girl in the kingdom into a monster girl. Your party is divided into three sub parties which all fight battles at random. All Nine girls must be used in battle and you can’t control which team gets put into battle except in boss fights. It is a pretty fun and quite silly little turn based RPG that we hope you enjoy.
    We highly recommend that you read the readme file as it will inform you about a few bugs to expect to encounter from the original Japanese rom and other things to expect during gameplay.

    You cant beat the Xmas season for great Homebrew releases, well heres a translation of a classic Snes game that will get your mouth watering:

    Almost 20 years after its original Japanese release, the immediate ancestor to the beloved tactics game Advance Wars is finally playable in English.
    Super Famicom Wars was developed by Intelligent Systems, published by Nintendo and first released on May 1 1998. The game was available exclusively via the Nintendo Power rewritable cartridge system, making it one of the hardest Super Famicom titles to obtain.
    The game was followed up by two titles for Game Boy Advance then yet another two for Nintendo DS in relatively quick succession. Since then, not much has been heard about the series’ future from either Nintendo or Intelligent Systems. This is a shame, really, since the Wars series’ upbeat take on turn-based military strategy is uniquely charming and accessible. So, in a way, releasing this translation makes a new game in the Wars franchise available to the English speaking world for the first time in almost ten years.
