NesterDC 7.0 is OUT!!!!!

This forum is for discussion pertaining to homebrew and indie software for the Dreamcast, such as homebrew games, emulators/interpreters, and other homebrew software/applications. Porting requests and developmental ideas are not to be made here; you can make those here. If you need any help burning discs for homebrew software, this is the place to ask as well.

Is there any sort of speed increase in this version? I'll have to test it out... I know it doesn't really NEED a speed increase, but ya'know, it's always nice. :wink:

If you think typing 'make' is hard, forget coding.
If you can't figure out the commands to DC-Tool, forget coding.
If you think coding is as easy as typing printf("Hello World\n"); , shoot yourself.

hyper please hush... if you don't like it keep it to yourself please and thank you...

it's a good improvement when you consider what is left to making it the 'perfect' emu, as good as NES emulation can get on DC... as close to the real thing...

Wow! A new NesterDC release, I didn't expect this one. It now just feels like a new release of DreamSNES. We all now know where Fumihiko was working on all those months :wink: . Anyway the best emu has gotten better. Up to burn...

hey all, it's me again...

I tested out nesterDC 7 ...
:)
Positive:


1) Better font, and it supports 50 characters, rock ridge. I think that's a great improvement since it saves us from renaming / truncating our GoodNES roms. Rarely does a GoodNES rom name exceed 50.

2) the start-up seems faster.

3) more advanced-user oriented than latter versions.

4) Memory quick saves. Great idea!

5) The speed has improved to near perfection, although I think 99% of the games run full speed.


Negative (mostly minor!):
:evil:


1) Big bug I have noticed here.... when exiting game (L+R+START), if you hold down L+R too long, NesterDC will freeze at the menu. And I mean you must press the L+R very quickly, do not hold them down.

2) With bilinear filter off, side-scrolling games still appear grainy. (or does the NES actually behave in that way?)

3) First screen says select devices 0-3. Should that not be 1-4?

4) Still some unsupported roms. Spiritual Warfare for example.

-Other than those, this is an amazing release!! good work Takayama!
