openMSX v0.9.1 (MSX emu for OpenDingux)

openMSX is one the most advanced emulators of MSX, an 8-bit home computer system from the 80’s for which many great games exist. Compared to the preview version, this version starts up much quicker, has a more responsive and better designed OSD menu and has a virtual keyboard.

Changes:

MSX device support:
– Bug fixes:
– overscan: 512×512 demo by NYYRIKKI and Don’t Cock It Up by Matra now work
– several small issues in existing MSX machine configurations
– 2nd drive detection on National machines
– detail in MSX-AUDIO that prevented proper detection in MSX-AUDIO BIOS 1.3
– fixed crash with fast resampler and 8192 samples
– Accuracy improvements:
– much improved accuracy for Floppy Drive Controllers (mostly WD2793 and
alike)
– added support for delayed motor off for disk drives, as in real machines
implemented by the CXD1032 chip
– disk drive rotation is now correct
– added support for persistency of S1985 back-up RAM
– added support for specifying the initial content of RAM and VRAM. Fixing
this for the Philips MSX2’s shows why Cas Cremers never noticed a bug in
Akin, causing white pixels on the screen
– improved timing of the VDP LINE command (thanks to NYYRIKKI for the ideas)
– Added support for the FDC connection style of the Victor HC-9x
– Added support for several floppy drive extensions: Sanyo MFD-001, Mitsubishi
ML-30DC/ML-30FD, Talent DPF-550, AVT DPF-550, Philips NMS 1200
– Added Spanish Mitsubishi ML-G1, Spanish Mitsubishi ML-G3, Japanese Sony HB-10,
Toshiba HX-21, Toshiba HX-22 and Toshiba HX-22I. The latter two have a
switchable RS-232C interface (use the new toshiba_rs232c_switch setting)

New or improved emulator features:
– OSD menu improvements:
– list of machines and extensions are now sorted alphabetically
– file lists are now filtered on extension case insensitively
– Performance improvements:
– OSD
– start-up time
– several scripts
– improved console rendering speed (uses less CPU)
– improved Tcl integration
– speed up low level disk emulation
– Miscellaneous:
– guess_title script is now a lot better and is used to generate file names
if no file name was given (e.g. to screenshots)
– don’t print an error when an initial CMOS/SRAM file isn’t found
– enable auto-run for cassettes by default
– additional files for ROMs (like samples for Playball) can now also be in
the same directory as the ROM file

Build system, packaging, documentation:
– Upgraded 3rd party libraries
– First step in phasing out the roms/ directories: removed them (including
SHA1SUMS file which was redundant with the hardwareconfig.xml files) and new
configs do not use the path with roms/ anymore; use the systemroms pool
instead

And of course the usual various bug fixes.

ScummVM v1.4.0 (misc)

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep’s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often.

Release notes: 1.4.0 (2011-11-11)

New Games:
– Added support for Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos.
– Added support for Blue’s Birthday Adventure.
– Added support for Ringworld: Revenge Of The Patriarch.

– Added PlayStation 3 port.

General:
– Fixed the ARM assembly routine for reverse stereo audio.
– Added support for building with MacPorts out of the box.

The Last Mission Remake v0.5 (Dingoo Game)

The Last Mission Remake is a side-view arcade game without scrolling (viewpoint moves from screen to screen) with map of big dimensions. The game takes its inspiration from games such as Underwurlde and Starquake.

You control a tank-like robot which can be divided in two: you rotate caterpillar and head-cannon, and the head part can fly off on its own. However, the head can only survive separately for a short amount of time, and your restart position is dictated by the location of the body, even if the head has moved forward through further screens. Therefore, the difficulty of the game was in making it possible to advance with the assembled robot’s two parts. The original game was published by Operasoft in 1987 and is an almost exact replica of the self-booter PC version. The 4-color CGA graphics is retained but the sound is changed to adlib to give the game more MSX1/2 feel.

Changes:

+ rewrite a bit keypress routines
+ any key to exit demo mode
+ make elevators part of the game process, not a cutscene – make final cleanup
+ pause mode
+ fullscreen toggle for sdl (win32 and *nix)
+ rotating “the last mission” logo
+ showing big title picture
