    Heres a new version of the MAME Emulator for Windows:

    It’s the day you’ve been eagerly awaiting all month: MAME release day! MAME 0.198, our May release, is packed full of improvements in lots of areas. Newly supported arcade games include the rare video pinball game Tom Tom Magic, Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu EX ’98, and Keirin Ou. Newly supported computers include the TI-99/2, Dragon MSX-64, and BBC Master 512.
    This release brings graphics emulation improvements to a number of systems, including more fixes for Sega Saturn/ST-V, missing effects emulated in 1945k III, and improvements to the title screen in Wolf Fang. The SH-4 recompiler now supports more FPU opcodes directly, and NAOMI keyboards are supported. Low-level floppy drive emulation improvements bring improved compatibility for Apple II software. Newly supported peripherals include a PC ISA LBA BIOS card, the Beeb Speech Synthesiser, and a number of BBC Micro pointing devices.
    Other additions include new Tiger handhelds (Batman: The Animated Series, Operation: Aliens, Wayne’s World, and X-Men), the Fidelity Elegance and Prestige chess computers, and alternate versions of Battle Balls, Centipede, Final Fight, Karate Blazers, Last Mission, Real Puncher, Sengoku 3, Spy Hunter, and World Heroes 2. There are lots of additions to the Apple II cassette software list, and several additions to the Sorcerer cassette software list as well. MAME now supports Korean user interface thanks to a contribution from Neius.
    For developers, we’ve fixed some issues in the debugger affecting CPUs that use word addressing, and the source list is sorted more intuitively in memory windows. We’ve made a number of changes to how machine configuration works to make driver development more intuitive and less error-prone.

    2. Nintendo Switch

    Some good news for Switch hackers:

    • As I announced some weeks ago, I've written a program which allows you to make your life easier. Because of long threads and misunderstandings I felt that I need to make a program which has everything included, necessary to get into homebrew.

    • You can add/remove packages (.zip-files) and extract them. There is already Hekate4 and 5 and the Appstore preinstalled.

      For the payloads it uses TegraRcmSmash by @rajkosto and the necessary drivers.
      You can there as well add and remove payloads you want to use. Included packages so far here: biskeydump,fusee testpayload, hekate_ctcaer_2.0
      I tested the homebrew launcher with hekate on my 4.1.0 Switch with a Windows 10 PC - everything worked out perfectly.
      And yes people I know - this isn't groundbreaking, but an All In One Package and that exactly was what I wanted.
      An updater is also included, so you should be notified once something new is available.

      There is a installer version as well as a portable version. Just make sure to extract everything if you choose portable.

      Linux integration will follow sometime later - maybe you even want to contribute to that.

    Not played the game itself but heres good news for some:

    • With E3 within only a few weeks, this is the time for rumors to be at their most wild and speculative. Especially when it comes to popular games. There's also been quite a few games leaked prior to the actual press conferences, such as Team Sonic Racing, Rage 2, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, leading to the actual confirmation of these games potentially weeks earlier than intended. When Walmart isn't "accidentally" letting the existence of these titles out to the public, a good way to get an early confirmation of a game is by checking out each country's Ratings Board. This has lead to the discovery of games like Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered, Okami HD, and Super Bomberman R multiplatform, far before the actual reveal.

      The latest roundup of interesting new ratings from the Korean Game Ratings Board shows three game releases that could potentially be happening: Borderlands 1 GOTY for XB1, PS4, and PC, Sunset Overdrive for PC, and lastly and potentially most interestingly, Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch.

      This also follows a "leak" from 4chan stating that Fortnite, Paladins, Dragon Ball FighterZ and more would be getting announced at Nintendo's Direct at this E3. Once more, after correctly predicting the Fallout 76 tease, Kotaku has corroborated this specific rumor, and claims that they have a source at Epic Games that has confirmed this as truth. Of course, it's all to be taken with a grain of salt until June 12, the day of Nintendo's conference.

    weird news but here it is:

    • You own some SNES cartridges, but you only have NES console, well no problem, as you can now run SNES games on your original NES!
      Tom Murphy, aka Tom7, has found a way to manipulate NES cartridges so that they can truly outperform what would usually be expected from them. Tom hacks the circuit boards of these cartridges, equipping them with Raspberry Pi 3 mini-computers. The Pi plays host to a number of SNES ROMs which are all filtered through a special program, translating the necessary data into something the NES can read and essentially display on a TV.

      If you want to see all of this happening in action, check out the video below. The idea starts to take shape at around 5:40, and if you skip ahead to 16:12, you'll see Tom placing the finished NES cartridge into the system, allowing the NES to play the SNES classic Super Mario World. This is some kind of Back To The Future-style wizardry that goes well over our heads, but it's pretty amazing to see.

      This isn't the only interesting project that Tom7 has created, though. A few years back he created a computer program that could learn how to play NES games on its own, with just tiny amount of instruction from the player. Somehow, though, seeing Super Mario World be played on a NES just seems even more crazy. We're all used to Virtual Console, where retro games are played on newer systems, but reversing that is very interesting indeed.

      Now then, who's up for some Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Game Boy Color? -- Nah, I want to see Super Mario Odyssey for the newest console, the Nintendo Switch, running on my NES console, or better yet the NES Classic Mini, to prove you don't need the latest shit

    2. Retro Consoles/Translation News

      “We are happy with the progress we are making on Atari VCS and thrilled that fans finally have a chance to reserve the first ones,” said Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices. “Atari VCS will give fans a lot of freedom to game, stream, connect and customize their experience like never before. The entire Atari team is working hard to deliver this unique platform and can't wait for fans to get their hands on it. We’ll have exciting reveals and announcements between now and then so stay tuned!”
      Additionally, the Atari VCS platform will support 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content, onboard and expandable cloud storage options, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0 support. Moreover the proprietary Atari VCS User Interface that the device packs integrates optional voice control and a web browser for full access to the internet.

      A new Atari VCS launch video accompanied the announcement: (see the video below)

      And what about games? Every Atari VCS comes with the Atari Vault collection of more than 100 classics like Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Missile Command, Gravitar and Yars’ Revenge. (see the video below)

      And that's as much as we know for now but the team behind the Atari VCS previously said that "a growing list of games, especially a full range of popular modern titles, will be announced at later dates". Nevertheless, the Indiegogo campaign page is touting the device as a "gaming and home entertainment streaming device with open platform for creativity and customization". This might entice tinkerers as the platform runs on Linux and might evolve into a community investing in independent software development for the console.

      However this revival of the Atari brand in the console market does not come cheap. The less pricey option is the Atari VCS Onyx priced at $199 USD (without controllers), and that for a limited time. Other options include extra controllers or even the $299 USD Indiegogo-exclusive Atari VCS Day One Collector’s Edition, also available only for a limited time. Nevertheless, there seem to be a lot of people interested in the product as its campaign has raised 1819% of its initial goal (over $1.8 million) at the time of writing, with a month left before the backing ends.
      Click to expand...
      The Atari VCS has an expected delivery date of July 2019. But the big question is, do you like the 'specs.' posted above? And if so, will you pre-order one, or what until next year?
