    psp PSPCAP32: Amstrad CPC Emulator for PSP v1.4.4



    Hi All,

    Here a new (final?) version of PSPCAP32 the CPC Emulator for PSP.

    For those who haven't seen previous versions, Caprice32 is one
    of the best emulator of the Amstrad CPC home computer series running
    on Windows and Unix, written by Ulrich Doewich.
    This emulator faithfully imitates the CPC464, CPC664, and CPC6128 models
    (see http://sourceforge.net/projects/caprice32)

    What's new in version 1.4.4 :

    - Cheat support !
    - Text editor to modify the global cheat.txt file
    - Memory monitoring engine to find your own cheat code !
    - Text editor to write your own comments on games
    - Display first comment line while browsing game files
    - Finally fix issue with "Home -> Exit" !
    - Add option to disable auto fire in settings menu
    - Improve global emulation speed
    - Improve file requester with virtual keyboard to choose
    sequentially rom files beginning with a given letter
    - Zip rom files are now decompressed in memory (much faster !)
    - Tested on FW-5.0-m33

    How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.

    Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public license,
    read COPYING.txt file for more information about it.

    See http://zx81.zx81.free.fr/ for download

    Enjoy,

    Zx.

    Default Cheat codes

    Is there any way to convert the existing cheat code databases readily available, i.e. there:

    http://genesis8.free.fr/frontend/emu-uti.php
    "CPCEMU POKES DATABASE v1.1" -- (agy)pdb.zip
    "ULTPATCH.DBF - new poke database (version 3.4E)" -- cpcup34e.zip
    "CPCEMU.DBF v0.9 (12/21/99)" -- mix09.zip
    [...]

    To a format PSPCAP32 could recognize? A little help would be much appreciated.


    Thanks!

    i've converted your file in cheat format. Rename the file attached in cheat.txt and put it in pspcap32 folder

    You will then be able to import them in the game you want (using the import command, see README for details)

    Thanks a million, did you merge the 3 "poke" databases available on:

    http://genesis8.free.fr/frontend/emu-uti.php

    Some pokes are missing from eachother files.

    Thanks!!!

    It's safe to assume you did something of the like:

    awk -F\" '{ print $4"\n "$10"-"$12,$6 }' MIX09.DBF

    correct me if I'm wrong...

    I'm confused about something, please enlighten me, do we need to have one file per game and load it accordingly on-demand, or something else, having one big file doesn't seem to help pspcap32 to chose the right entry.

    I'm probably missing something there.

    The cheat.txt file can be used to import the cheat you want using the cheat -> import menu. Then you have to save the cheats for the given game. Everything is done manually, and yes you should have then a file for each game.

    At first I've done the cheat stuff only for me to finish games i had no luck to finish when i was a child. My pleasure was also to find the cheat / poke @ by myself. That might explain why it is not so convenient to use cheat.txt file with pspcap32.

    hope that helps

    Default Cheats

    Can the cheat file have multiple codes for the SAME game or one cheat per file?
