    Red Dead Redemption 2 has retaken the No.1 spot in the UK physical games charts four weeks after it last held the position.
    There has been a spike in sales across many games in the charts - and particularly the Top Three. Red Dead Redemption 2 sales rose 19 per cent, taking it from No.2 to No.1. FIFA 19 saw a 30 per cent sales rise (going from No.3 to No.2), whereas Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - boosted by a £10 price drop - rose four places to No.3 (sales up 175 per cent)
    All three games have sold over one million boxed games in the UK, and combined account for over four million physical games sold.
    It does mean last week's No.1 - Super Smash Bros Ultimate - has taken a tumble down to No.4. It seems like a heavy fall, but actually sales only dropped 52 per cent week-on-week, which is a decent result for a game in its second week on sale.
    Nintendo Switch is clearly proving to be a popular console as we get nearer to Christmas, and a number of Switch games increased in sales week-on-week. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe holds No.5 in the charts (sales up 20 per cent), and there were sales increases for Pokémon Let's Go: Pikachu, Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
    Not that sales increases are confined to Nintendo games. Xbox One exclusive Forza Horizon 4 saw a 135 per cent sales bump (up from No.17 at No.8), after a £10 price cut. Whereas, PS4-only Spider-Man rose from No.11 to No.9 with a 68 per cent sales increase (again, some price activity drove this).
    The rest of the Top Ten includes Spyro Reignited Trilogy at No.6 (up two places after a minor price cut), and Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy at No.10 (also up two places). The only other game in the Top Ten is Battlefield V, which drops to No.7 with a slight eight per cent drop in sales.

    WinUAE v4.1.0 Final is released. WinUAE is the commodore amiga emulator for Windows. WinUAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don’t know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680×0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provide very good graphics and sound capabilities. Its first incarnation, the A1000, appeared in 1985, followed by the highly successful A500 and A2000 models. WinUAE is a port of the originally written for Unixish systems UAE; but over time, it seems the Windows port, WinUAE has become the best version available on any platform. WinUAE is free software: you are welcome to distribute copies of it and/or modify it, under certain conditions. There is no warranty of any kind for UAE. For more details concerning these issues, please read the GNU General Public License, which describes the terms under which WinUAE is distributed.

    QEMU v3.1.0 is released. QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performances.When used as a virtualizer, QEMU achieves near native performances by executing the guest code directly on the host CPU. A host driver called the QEMU accelerator (also known as KQEMU) is needed in this case. The virtualizer mode requires that both the host and guest machine use x86 compatible processors.

    2. Nintendo DS News

    melonDS v0.7.1 is released. melonDS is an open source Nintendo DS(NDS) emulator. melonDS is part of a second wave of DS emulators. There are a few other emulator projects that are part of it, which you might have already heard of. Either way, check them out!

    melonDS Features:
    * almost-complete 2D graphics
    * 3D graphics (software renderer) with texturing, alphablending, lighting
    * input: keyboard and joystick, touchscreen
    * backup memory
    * booting from the BIOS
    * resizable video output window, preserving aspect ratio of individual screens

    melonDS Changelog:


    As title says.

    We're not showing screenshots because they wouldn't be a good medium for conveying the number of changes in this release.


    The biggest change here is that the core timings were entirely renovated to try being closer to the hardware.

    First of all, after several days of gruelling testing and guesswork, we were finally able to understand the GX timings, and emulate them properly for the first time. But, as we weren't gonna stop there, we also renovated the timings for DMA and memory accesses, so that both of them are closer to their hardware counterparts. DMA and ARM7 should be pretty close to perfection now, ARM9 less so but it's still more realistic.

    We have also been fixing the emulator's main loop, so that the ARM9, ARM7 and system clocks shouldn't desync anymore.

    All of this, with a few added optimizations, fixes a whole bunch of issues, from things flickering to audio crackling to games outright going haywire (hi RaymanDS). Your games are now running better than ever!

    ... or not. That's also the point of the 0.7.1 release, I want to hear about any issues caused by the timing renovation, so we can get them fixed for the epic 0.8.

    We already have one such issue, all of this is causing sprite flickering in Pokémon Platinum. Quick attempts at fixing this went nowhere, so we will have to investigate this proper.


    There's also a number of misc fixes. For example, the 3D glitches that showed up in Mario Kart DS were fixed, but there's already a lengthy post about this.

    There's a small fix to 2D windows, nothing really noteworthy, just fixes a game that was setting up backwards windows.

    The input system no longer requires a dpad to be mapped to directional keys for joystick axes to work.

    The code that looks for local files (melonDS.ini, BIOS, firmware...) was modified to explicitly check the directory melonDS is in, if that is not the same as the working directory. So in these cases it will no longer fail to find its files. Also, if melonDS.ini is absent, the preferred directory for creating it is the directory melonDS is in.

    And, finally, we finally got rid of the old savemem type autodetect code. Considering its complexity and the amount of failures, it was a trainwreck. So instead, now, melonDS will pull that information from the provided ROM database (romlist.bin).

    Edit- If your game is still failing to save: you might have an old failed save file lying around, try deleting it. When a save file is present, melonDS determines the savemem type from the file size, so if a file is present with a wrong size, you will have to delete it.


    Enjoy!

    2. PS1 News

    Yifan Lu and madmonkey1907 managed to dump the PlayStation Classic MTK boot ROM via serial interface and then realized the key Sony used to encrypt areas of the system was the shared public key as opposed to using a private key kept secret as it should be in this case. In other words Sony failed to secure the device by mistakes in the encryption signing process, and it's not the first time that happens. You can use this search to find the related releases so far in the download section for this hack. News spread around quickly on Twitter so mainstream outlets like arstechnica.com and hackaday.com picked up the story. Thanks goes to GaryOPA for letting me know about the BleemSync tool.

    Super Smash Bros Ultimate breaks franchise records to become this week's No.1 UK boxed game.
    It is the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game released so far, eclipsing the combined launch sales of Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee.
    The game's launch sales are 302 per cent higher than the numbers achieved by Super Smash Bros for Wii U and they're 233 per cent higher than Super Smash Bros for 3DS. Launch sales are also 62.5 per cent higher than the Wii game Super Smash Bros Brawl. All of which means Ultimate is the fastest-selling Smash Bros game in the franchise's UK history.
    It's worth noting that the sales only include physical numbers, so digital downloads of Ultimate have not been counted.
    There was a Switch hardware promotion this week featuring Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which boosted sales of that game 45 per cent week-on-week. The title rose four places to No.5.
    Over Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the launch of Smash Bros, around 200,000 Switch consoles have been sold in the UK - retailers have told us.
    The arrival of Smash Bros means that FIFA 19 loses its No.1 spot, and actually falls two spaces to No.3. Red Dead Redemption 2 holds firm at No.2 for a second consecutive week.
    The other big new release this week is Just Cause 4. The Square Enix title debuts two spaces below where Just Cause 3 landed three years ago, and sales are down 61.5 per cent compared to the launch sales of that game. It's the slowest selling Just Cause game released so far, although if digital sales were included, it may have outsold the 2006 original.
    The PS4 version of Just Cause 4 accounted for 55 per cent of the sales, with the rest coming on Xbox One.
    One other new launch this week was PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on PS4, which propels the action game back into the charts at No.22 (sales up 321 per cent).

    So the first post on our new forum for Marvel News, im a massive fan of the MCU but not really a comic fan, first off heres the trailer



    So we dont see a lot in the trailer but some key points, are Tony Stark/Ironman with Nebula, it looks to me like hes near Knowwhere ? as hes running out of air. 42 seconds in, is Nebula in the milano with stark ?

    Captain America has got rid of the beard yeh.

    Black Widow still has the blonde hair and hasnt aged much ?

    Scott Lang knocks on the front door of the avengers base, so he got out the Quantum Realm? and also has the van to get into the quantum realm.

    Bruce Banner is there

    Hawkeye obviously lost his family and is now adopting the ronin persona.

    Thanos is still farming and has the damaged infinity gauntlet and his armour is acting as a scarecrow.

    Nice touch with the dusting of the logo and also the joining together for the title.

    Tony is in the Milano

    Thor is in normal clothes and no rocket Racoon. ...
