    In its patch notes for Fortnite today, Epic Games announced it was adjusting how cross-platform play pools are set up by default in the game.
    Before, the game's cross-platform capabilities put Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android players all in the same matchmaking pools for games. Now, it seems Epic has opted to divvy them up to improve the game experience for those on Switch and mobile.
    Now, Xbox One and PS4 players will be grouped together by default, while Switch users will be grouped with mobile. This does not apply if players are in cross-platform parties already. Fortnite will still allow cross-platform play across all platforms for those already in parties or who accept an invite to one. So, if a Nintendo Switch user is in a party with a friend on Xbox One, they can still play together.

    Ahead of GDC, Microsoft has announced that Xbox Live services will be coming to iOS and Android.
    That includes features such as achievements, gamerscore, friend lists, family settings and Xbox Live security measures. Developers are now able to implement these into their smartphone titles.
    "If you watch what we've done, especially with Minecraft, over the past few years, we've taken Xbox Live to as many platforms as Minecraft is on as possible," says Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft CVP of Gaming Cloud. "We're uniting those communities together with a consistent, singular experience for all of those gamers.
    "We're now making that available to developers with our new mobile SDK for developers, which is available for iOS and Android. With one sign-in, iOS and Android games will have a consistent experience with fan favourite Xbox Live features such as achievements, gamerscore, hero stats, friends lists, club memberships, and even family settings -- no matter what device you're playing on.
    "All of those features will be made available to mobile game developers, whether they're looking for the entire experience that we offer in Minecraft, or Solitaire, but also standalone features like achievements or gamerscore. Xbox Trusted Identity Network supports log-in, privacy, online safety, and child accounts. All things around safety, security, and privacy that we hold near and dear."
    However, the company has nothing to report in terms of these services coming to Nintendo Switch. Microsoft was expected to announce a similar tie-up with Nintendo's machine, as detailed in a GDC talk description.

    2. Nes News

    Yes, you read that right! Here is a brand-spanking-new (incomplete) translation of Kou Dai Guai Shou, a Chinese Pokémon Diamond bootleg game for the NES. SaveState is in charge of the project, and is keeping a good pace.
    As of the time of this news, the translation of this game only goes up to Route 202, with many other things edited, such as some outdoor tiles and the battle system text.

    2. Virtual Boy News

    Kevin Mellott has announced MultiBoy 32, the first ever Virtual Boy multicart! It comes equipped with an SD card slot and can store up to 32 games of up to 32 Mbit each on its internal 1 Gbit flash chip. A battery-free MRAM chip adds standard-sized SRAM for each of the 32 game slots, and is connected through a full 16bit bus width instead of the production 8bit width.

    Features:

    1. Flash space: 32 slots of 32Mbit RAM via a 1Gbit Flash.
    2. RAM space: 256k x 16 SRAM space (8k x 16 per slot) using MRAM (no battery needed).
    3. Full 16bit SRAM bus instead of the production 8bit width.
    4. On board 32bit microcontroller (MCU) for programming slots.
    5. USB input for interfacing and control.
    6. Games loaded via SD card slot.
    7. On screen game selection themed around my 8bit VB character Do-Do.
    8. Arduino compatible MCU (custom firmware development if you're so inclined).


    The cart should be out this summer, at a price of around a reasonable $150. But the price ultimately depends on the number of preorders, so make sure to share your enthusiasm for this amazing piece of hardware! Check out the announcement thread for all the yummy info.

When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer.

    DaedalusX64 is the only working Nintendo 64 emulator for the PSP and PSVita and it can emulate some titles like Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 quite well. However, it’s still quite far from being a perfect emulator but thankfully, some people like z2442, TheMrIron2 and wally4000 seem to have taken an interest in making it better.

    Through their efforts, many updated builds have been released and the most recent one is 1.1.6, which was released a few days ago and it brings along:

    • Improvements to the job manager which improved the performance of the audio emulation routine and made it more stable
    • An update to the toolchain being used to compile the emulator which has unexpectedly brought about performance improvements
    • Faster memory copying routine
    • Work is also being done on a PC (Linux) port of Daedalus which may make it easier for debugging and improving the performance of the PSP version

    In order to get this updated version of Daedalus, click on this link and grab the ZIP file linked in it. If you’re using a PSVita, this must be run via Adrenaline as there isn’t a native port of Daedalus yet.

    mGBA is a GameBoy Advance (and Colour/Original) emulator that aims to deliver accurate emulation while performing well on lower-end devices.


    This emulator is available on multiple hacked platforms, like the Switch, 3DS and Wii, and PCs but the folks behind it still manage to keep the same codebase for all the available versions so all supported platforms get the latest goodies!


    As this emulator is still actively in development, it regularly receives updates and the latest one is version 0.7.1 which brings along:

    • A fix for the Vita port in which save files weren’t flushed to disk if mGBA crashes or closes unexpectedly.
      • This could cause save files not to be updated with the latest save data and progress to be lost

    • Freezes in the menu on the 3DS and bugs relating to opening the application and gyroscope orientation on the Switch were fixed
    • Internal core improvements relating to memory, DMA and video were made to increase accuracy
    • Other minor features and bug fixes such as an updated Italian translation and a fix for the window icon when using X11

    To grab the latest version of mGBA, check out this link and download the appropriate version for the platform of your choice.

    2. Sega Saturn News

    This week marks a special occasion. With this final issue, we now have the full set of 37 issues of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine online and available for download.
    So let's jump back in time to November of 1997 and relive the glory days of the Sega Saturn together.
    As our first preview, we have the review for Bust-A-Move 3 by Taito, followed by Street Fighter Collection by Capcom. We then take a look at the showcase for Quake by Lobotomy Software Inc. as well as Silhouette Mirage by none other than Treasure. And Finally Steep Slope Sliders by Cave, before we finish off with a big interview with Lobotomy Software.
    You might also notice that the downloads for this issue as well as most of magazines on this page are downloading a lightning fast speed now.
    That's because I've decided to buy a different hosting package for these magazines to make it a lot easier to download them as the previous one has become super slow over the years.
    I'm in the middle of recompiling all the older issues and uploading these to the new host as well, but this will take quite a bit of time, so please bear with me.
    Enjoy!
