Sound works fine now that those changes have been implemented. Somebody please try testing it before I release (staff, mod, coder, etc): http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=49767&page=3 Did you implement eke-eke's changes or mine? The downside with eke-eke's approach (ie not using a t...

Dreamcast Crisis

If you also read dcemu.co.uk you will have seen this already, appologies for double posting, I would just like an answer as soon as possible!! I have a friend who is having a bit of a problem with his trusty DC, he says the following:- I'm having a bit of a dreamcast crisis, do you think you would b...

OK... Here is a really quick and dirty Windows batch file that will create a ROMS.txt and ROMS directory. @echo off MKDIR ROMS set _romnumber=0 if "%2" NEQ "" set _romnumber=%2 for %%V in (%1\*) do (call :S_RENAME "%%V") goto :EOF :S_RENAME copy %1 ROMS\. ren ROMS\%~nx1 %_romnumber%%~x1 set _romname...

You really do need to try all games with either C68K or FAME - there are issues which only occur with one or other of the CPU cores - this release is _definitely_ more compatible than PVR-3! If it doesn't work well with C68K (Sonic 1 hangs for me using C68K) then switch over to using FAME - and vice...

The ROM list stuff isn't all that complicated, is it?! It is a bit simplistic, but it means you can have game descriptions simply... What is so complicated about it? ZIPNAME Description as long as you want ZIPNAME2 Description 2 as long as you want Is the problem one of typing here? 1) copy your rom...

OK, here's another build to play with... gpdc-20060726.zip Drop that .bin over the top of Warmtoe's last release, and it should be good to go. Only five changes worth mentioning, most of which aren't that important... OK - how do I put this? I love you! Can you stick a source delta out somewhere? I...

Low-res mode will only help games that are limited by the PVR. I only know of two (Zero Wing and Sonic 3), and neither of those are affected in-game. Probably not worth the hassle. The low-res mode also needs to adjust all the multiplications in the renderer (all the "*16"s need to become "*8"s). H...

Using 320x240 mode used to fix that. I don't know if WT's builds are using 320x240 or 640x480. In the last build I gave Warmtoe (the one these builds are based on) 320x240 looked fuzzy because of the deflicker filter. My current builds use 320x240 and disable the deflicker filter, so they look fine...

And I think setting FM_LFO_SUPPORT to 0 is fm.h might work.

It seems to continue to sound alright - but the code with that set seems far simpler - I'm probably missing something obvious (like having that option set to 0 is wrong in the extreme) but...

OK - well, all of that is simple to switch - check out dreamcast-x\Makefile you can choose which compiler to use in there.

And take the -fno-gcse off the main compile options and put it on the 2 rules for cz80 and c68k subdirectories.

NP - all ends on Thursday, since I'm off on vacation (i.e. away from my machines!)

But since the source is out, maybe someone else will take up the reins for a while!

It makes perfect sense - and I was thinking it when I was doing it - but then I left it in place for everything (as you can see from the Makefile). It's simple enough to change the makefiles for c68k and cz80 only - since they are both built with separate build rules. The other thing, I'm using the ...

Also, what's with that compiler flag (-no-gcse) that Quzar found? Would it increase C68K & CZ80 performance noticably ? I dunno. It potentially speeds up code that uses computed gotos, which C68K uses extensively. The only way is to try it out. OK - I put -fno-gcse (which I think is the right way t...

I didn't mean any harm at all, and I'm sure Quzar didn't either.
No problem - I just thought I'd go off on one ;-)

The source will come.

Is the source around somewhere? Yep - on my hard drive. Is the source around somewhere? That was my question too. Genesis Plus is GPL after all, IIRC. YRC - it's GPL. Look - it's a work-in-progress, call it a beta if you want. Patience is a virtue. Why is everyone so grabby, grabby? When BA and I g...

This is the best Mega Drive emulator for the Dreamcast. Even better than the one made by Sega itself. So I say just be grateful to everyone who contributed to it - they should be proud of what has been achieved so far. I just want to re-iterate, BlackAura did all the hard stuff - my additions to it...
