Tema: Emulation

Today the developers of openMSX - the emulator that aims for perfection - have released version 0.6.2 of this multi platform MSX emulator, along with Catapult, its GUI/launcher.

New or improved emulator features:

  • Video recording and improved sound recording (stutterless)
  • SDLGL-PP renderer (OpenGL 2.0) can do hq and hqlite scaling in hardware
  • Easier to use trainers. It is possible to enable or disable individual cheats of a trained game
  • Extended hot keys: you can now bind any host event to a TCL command, which means you can e.g. let openMSX push the MSX F1 key if you press a certain button on your PC game pad
  • Event recording and replaying (experimental for now: only available at command line, recorded session starts when openMSX starts)
  • Debugger now supports watchpoint regions

MSX device support:

  • V9990 enhancements: deinterlace, cursor Y position in overscan mode, huge speed optimizations for P modes
  • SCC sound quality improvements (no more aliasing)
  • Support for the Playball mapper (and samples)
  • Fixed mirroring of some FDC registers and diskROMs
  • Dot matrix graphical printer emulation added (thanks to the blueMSX Team)
  • Cassetteplayer recognizes end of tape and stops
  • Small bug fixes in various devices: MSX-Audio, V9990, VDP, SCC, PSG, TC8566AF
  • Various speed optimizations: VDP command engine, Z80, video rendering, V9990, debugger response time in break mode
  • Added a few Arabic MSX machines, but note that they have not been verified to be correct

Build system, packaging, documentation:

  • Added support for building an application folder on Mac OS X
  • Added support for building a universal binary for Mac OS X
  • HTML-ized the Console Command Reference and the diskmanipulator documentation. There is now also linking to these new manuals, which improved the usefulness of them a lot
  • Added a text document about how developers can control openMSX from their own application: doc/openmsx-control-xml.txt

For the complete list of changes, please read the release notes. You can download openMSX 0.6.2 here; source, Win32 and Mac OS X (universal) packages are available. Packages for Debian and FreeBSD 6 are expected soon in their native distribution systems.

As always, Wikipedia has the answer. Actually, it has a couple of dozen answers. I'll leave it up to you to pick out the meaning we intended :P

It's prolly this one: "Oscar (1991 film), a remake of the 1967 film, starring Sylvester Stallone"

Every time I see mth on a fair, he reminds me of Stallone Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Most famous Oscar is, of course, Oscar Centelles aka zanac2. LOL!

Hmmm. It seems to ignore my ~/.openMSX/share/settings.xml file.

OK, one thing we forgot to tell/warn you about: if you have a default machine set up, you'll have to make that setting again for openMSX 0.6.2, because the name of the setting changed from 'machine' to 'default_machine'. See also the new extensive manuals, e.g.

src/fdc/ In member function ‘openmsx::MSXtar:Big smileirEntry openmsx::MSXtar::findEntryInDir(const std::string&, unsigned int, openmsx::byte*)’:
src/fdc/ warning: ‘result$index’ may be used uninitialized in this function

Got this output when compiling on my openSUSE 10.2, x86_64. But everything is working fine 'till now.

Ah, yeah, that's a harmless warning that only occurs on some (older) versions of gcc... But we fixed it in SVN now. Anyway, you don't need to worry about it Smile
