    RadeonUser has posted the release of Project64 Legacy Open Beta the Nintendo 64 Emulator for WIndows, heres the release notes:

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or simply Hello for those who do not partake!

    I bring you our first beta release.
    We felt we had been taking too long and needed to generate some interest.

    What we offer here is an improvement over PJ64 1.6 and I consider it to be our Legacy (hence the name).
    We have had great support from our friends, notably Azimer for his work on his audio plugin that he has graciously allowed us to release, Icepir8 for his video plugin (I will better support it soon, I promise ice!), Witten for his always excellent work on cheats, Nekokabu who always brings insight into problems with games (I'm sorry I haven't had the time to fix everything you've pointed out!).
    And always a thanks to those that have stuck around, Clements, TrotterWatch, Squall but can't fully commit anymore like they used to (Life moving on stinks!)

    Of course to those that found out how to fix the problems no one else looked at, zoinkity I love your work.
    Luigiblood, just wow with your work into 64DD -- I'll be visiting that library you've built for us at some point!

    Zilmar and Jabo the original two who I'll always love dearly.
    Despite the differences we have had I cannot how any rancor towards you.

    Yes I'm forgetting a whole lot of people!
    Thank you all though, everyone.


    Now I do have a favor to ask for anyone that uses PJ64 Legacy.
    What I ask is that you please report any issues you run into!
    Anything you feel is wrong or could be improved is welcome.

    I must also ask for your patience.
    I am programming on my leisure time and I just spent the entire Christmas holiday weekend doing nothing but programming and taking naps (I say naps but these were simply instances where I was no longer awake).

    P.S.
    Oh, you probably want to know where the download is.
    Unfortunately Gent is the one who set up this forum and website so we'll have to wait for him in the morning to do the posts!
    So until then it's in the Downloads section under Open Beta Packages.
    I'll upload here too and I'm sure Gent will get after me in his morning for doing something wrong.

    Cheers though!
    Have fun everyone!

    Derrek, profi200, d0k3 have released a homebrew bootloader for the Nintendo 3DS that is similar to android's fastboot. Quote: 'fastboot3DS is a bootloader for the 3DS console, intended to be installed to the FIRM0 partition. It allows you to assign homebrew in .firm format to bootslots, and to chainload bootslots via either a bootmenu or a button combo of your choosing. fastboot3DS also contains basic tools for NAND backups and restores.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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
