The Emulation Realm

Releases with ports for two or more operating systems.

Free42  Free42 - Linux (32bit)  Free42 - Linux (64bit)  Free42 - Mac  Free42 - Android

What's New:

Made GPS optional. When I added the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission in 1.4.78, that had the side effect of making GPS a requirement. In 1.5.3a, the app manifest explicitly states that the GPS is not required.

What's New:

- Re-fixed the absolute paths for icons, images, files etc. The method I previously used was not 100% when it came to Linux / Windows and has now been tested to work under the following conditions;
  * Windows & Linux
  * Running application source(.py) from command line
  * Running from editor
  * Running compiled .exe directly
  * Running compiled .exe from a desktop shortcut
- Updated the pfemame.ico file to be more correct (multiple embedded resolutions). Design has also been updated
- Under windows, the EXE has an embedded icon
- Added to preferences the ability to highlight games that don't have a corresponding rom file in the ROMs folder path
- Fixed some graphical layout issues in the main view under Windows – the View combobox and search entry field top border were being overdrawn by the toolbar icons.
- Altered the way the games list is refreshed after changing; star ratings, number of runs, and adding to favorites. The list will now maintain whatever filter view it had previously prior to these actions.
- Fixed a bug that caused games with no category listing in catver.ini from being repeated may times in the game list as it tried to find a match through the categories.dat file.

puNES  puNES - Linux (32bit)  puNES - Linux (64bit)

What's New:

Mednafen (WIP) (32bit)  Mednafen (WIP) (64bit)  Mednafen (WIP) (Source)

What's New:

Raine  Raine - Debian  Raine (Source)

What's New:

v0.63.7
The test of yesterday turned bad, here is the fix for the sound associations in the kof serie.

v0.63.6
Mainly based on the sound commands this time, it adds support for this to quite a lot of neogeo games. Notice that it's a way to listen to the games music without any sound effects also, even without replacing the musics with external tracks.

puNES  puNES - Linux (32bit)  puNES - Linux (64bit)

What's New:

Added the possibility to save and load the color palette to/from file. The file format is the same used by FCEUX:
"Palette files are expected to Contain 64 8-bit RGB triplets (each in that order, red comes first in the triplet in the file, then green, then blue).".
