[RELEASE] fceu320 v0.3 beta
« on: March 26, 2010, 04:29:49 am »

Hi there i guess it's time for a new release of fceu320 :).

Note that this is a beta because there are some problems with the new minimal driver.
First the audio can get out of sync when a game is playing too fast so you have lo lower
the cpu rate and/or change the sound sampling rate, and second and more important i haven't
been able to get rid of that annoying lag during gameplay. 

But i discovered something weird, when i test the app using the terminal there is almost no lag at all,
but when i use dmenu to launch the emu it happens really often.  You can tell because the emu
freezes during a short time and the audio makes some ugly noise.

But anyway i have uploaded the source code so i hope someone can take a look at the problem and
fix it :).

Well here is the complete list of Features:

 - Based on latest fceux svn revision (4/03/2010).
 - Great compatibility
 - Builtin nsf player
 - FDS support
   NOTE: You must put a copy of your fds bios (disksys.rom)
    in the /local/home/.fceux folder.
 - 280x240 and fullscreen (320x240) video scale support.
 - Blur filter support
 - Fractional frameskip support: 1/3, 1/2 and 1. For example
   for frameskip 1/3 one frame is skipped and three emulated.
 - Zipped roms.
 - Gui for configuration with almost all fceux options available.
 - Built-in rom browser.
 - FCM and FM2 movie formats supported.
   NOTE: When a movie is selected the emu will ask for the
         corresponding nes rom.
 - Custom palette support
   NOTE: As version 0.3 you need to choose the palette from the file
    browser.
 - Virtual mouse support; use the pad to move the cursor, A and B
   are the mouse buttons.
 - Support for zapper, oeka and other mouse (gun) like games.
 - Support for fceux hotkeys (See controls for default hotkeys).
   NOTE: Only 10 hotkeys can be set using R + key combo and not
     all hotkeys are supported. Please read fceux documentation
     for more info about hotkeys.
 - Screenshot support.

And the Changelog:

v0.3 beta
 
 * Added file browser to GUI.
 * Rearenged all settings to three submenus: main, video and sound.
   Almost every original option is available now; like ntsc tv emulation,
   PAL timming, individual nes apu channel volume, etc.
 * Added new 280x240 scaler in video settings.
 * Merged last svn revision (4/03/2010).
 * Added fcm and fm2 movie support.
 * Added virtual mouse (gun) support.
 * Added hotkeys support (See features).
 * Added screenshot option to GUI.  The screenshot is saved in png
   format in the /usr/home/.fceux folder.
 * Added softreset nes using power switch.
 * Added option to save (override) default config to GUI.
   NOTE: There is no option to recover the default config yet.  So if you
         want to do that just remove the /local/home/.fceux/fceux.cfg file.
 * Added fractional frameskip (See features).
 * Replaced SDL driver with a minimal driver using Slaanesh's minimal
   library.
 * Fixed gui vsync.


  NOTE: Please be sure to remove all previous config files from /local/home/.fceux,
  both the main fceux.cfg file and the cfg folder

Hogans Alley works perfectly... The one game I can not get working that uses the zapper is Chiller... Is this game supported?

Thanks
Ikonz101

Update: Having a issue with Shooting Range as well. I am thinking that maybe this games need to be started with the Player 2 controller. Is there a way to do this in FCEU320?

Can you tell me what advantages this has over the native NES emulator (now or to be added later)? The native emulator seems to run everything perfectly for me, but if FCEU has even better performance or contains a feature that isn't in the native emulator, then I'd love to check it out.

Thanks,
Tom

nice work The Gama  :D

is possible start rom selection directly from the roms folder ?  :'(

The native Nes emulator have a filter very nice without distorting the image, is possible this filter in your emulator ? the blur filter no is good  :'(

The sound not work fine, have several freeze in the sound, and a little delay too.

The FPS Limit no work perfect, work up to 60 fps in some moments.


Thanks for all  :D

Yeah that is the reason why it is a beta release,  I haven't been able to fix that problem :(.  The strange thing
is that if i launch the emu using telnet there is almost no lag at all.  But when i use dmenu it happens
really often.  Also i suggest using elta's rootfs to reduce the amount of freezing.

And since i will work on other projects now, i hope someone could take a look at the source code and try to
get rid of that problem.

if you had a older version you need to delete the .fceux  folder from the directory local\home\

Very nice, the best NES emulator on dingux so far.
The only thing that makes me stick with the native emu is the scalling options... =(

take a look here:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingux-development/hardware-scalling/

I dont know exactly where to start, but I will try to make the Hardware Billinear filtering work this month.
I really hope to help improve this feature of dingux emulators =)

Oh, i wish you luck :).  Hardware scaling would be really nice, since a lot of cpu time is consumed during the scaling
process.  That and TV Out support would be great!.
