The Emulation Realm

Releases for Windows operating systems.


What's New

- since MAME can't handle subfolders in decompressed sets, decompressed sets and chds are always stored flat in folders (no clone/dependency subfolders in full or standalone mode). When kept compressed, the archives will hold subfolders
- not existing romOf reference leads to removed merge information for the machine


What's New:

- a2600.cpp: Default to having a right joystick connected. Set default controllers for games that don�t use joysticks, and corrected some parent/clone relationships in 'a2600.xml'. Made console switches machine configuration switches rather than DIP switches [kmg]. Allow cartridges to install themselves, fixing leaky abstraction [Wilbert Pol].
- academy.cpp, amsterdam.cpp: Placed drivers in the sub-folder "hegenerglaser/".
- as12.cpp: Placed driver in the sub-folder "fidelity/".
- asi100b0: Fixed a typo in asi100b0 company name [David Silva].
- avrmax.cpp: Driver placed in the sub-folder "elektor/".
- berlin.cpp: Placed driver in the sub-folder "hegenerglaser/".
- boris.cpp, borisdpl.cpp: Placed drivers in the sub-folder "appliedconcepts/".
- brikett.cpp: Placed driver in the sub-folder "hegenerglaser/".

[Kirby Rainbow Curse] Remove Flashing Squares workaround

XM6 Pro-68k

What's New:

- Compressed state files can now be loaded. (You must compress them yourself.)
  * Tip: When you've finished playing a particular game, compress all the state files from said game into a single .7z archive using 7-Zip. The resulting file will most likely be very small. Whenever you wish to replay the game, load the archive. You can then cycle through the states with (Shift-)Ctrl-Backspace.
- State saving has been optimized by first saving state into a RAM buffer before writing it to disk. This was done to minimize the interruption to the VM. The buffering will only be done if the system is not under memory pressure.
- Similarly, state loading also delays halting the VM until the state file has been cached (memory permitting) although the benefits are largely illusory. This was done to keep the experience consistent with in-archive state files.
- Context-sensitive help for menus was expanded to support the top level of pop-up menus (i.e. any menu item that opens a submenu). Not all menus have help strings yet, however.
- A slight fade effect is now applied to green floppy pane LEDs, for realism.
- A workaround for a bug in the IPL ROM was added. Now, 12 MB of RAM should no longer cause the X68000 to crash under certain circumstances while booting. This fix is inapplicable to previously existing state files with 12 MB of RAM.
- A workaround for SCSI ROM dumps that lack magneto-optical drive (MO) support (which is most of them) was added. It should not impact software SCSI drivers.
- It is now possible to change the current directory using the Control key in conjunction with drag-and-drop and CLI interfaces. Refer to the manual.

Bug fixes
- The floppy pane LEDs, when blinking, were susceptible to beating if the VM was being fast-forwarded. The mitigation has not yet been added to the MBCS edition. The drive number is also retained on dark blinking cycles in windowed mode now, which was not necessarily a bug. (Full-screen mode was not changed.)
- The no-reset CLI argument is now ignored on startup because it can interfere with updating SRAM switches for HDD images passed on the command line.
- When selecting a directory through a dialog, the directory modification date was being updated due to the OS creating a test file, apparently.
- The radix for imported cheats was often being misinterpreted.
- The disassembler had a few defects.
