The Retro League Podcast – Episode 423 – Rewards and Reproach (misc)

The Retro League Podcast features discussion about the latest retro gaming news, re-releases, community developments and reviews of our favorite games.

This week:

This week we saw a number of people given honors or having it taken away, but we’re trying to find the line between Hair Metal and Alternative Rock. We are cautious about getting our hopes up for a Commodore 64 plug & play system, and we might have to start rating 90’s TV commercials in a scale of 1 to 5 Poochies. We’ve got a Game Boy port of some arcade classics and a winter sports game for the good old 2600 in this episode of the Retro League.

Minicraft3DS v1.6.2 (3DS Game)

Minicraft3DS is a Nintendo 3DS homebrew port of Notch’s Ludum Dare game “Minicraft“. The goal of the game is to kill the only other sentient being in the world, making sure you’ll be alone forever.

Release notes:

(Andre111’s changes)
– Real Multiplayer! Tested and working this time around, compatible with the updates in this fork.
– Character editing! Customize your character!
– “Stability”
(ElijahZAwesome’s changes)
– Sound works without ANYTHING needed on the SD card (aside from the 3dsx if your using that obviously) now, in all builds of the game. Easy install.
– Github has each file downloadable individually, seeing as you don’t need the resources folder, also I realized that the SMDH file is embedded in the 3dsx, so that’s not needed either.

It is known that sound lingers after exiting without pressing the proper exit menu item.

PicoDrive for 3DS v0.93 (Multiple emus for 3DS)

PicoDrive for 3DS is a port of notaz’s PicoDrive emulator by bubble2k16 to the old 3DS / 2DS. Although PicoDrive is already highly optimized for ARM processors, if ported as is, it still doesn’t run full speed for all Mega Drive games on the old 3DS / 2DS, as it’s evident in the RetroArch’s version. So this port heavily relies on the 3DS’s 2nd core to emulate the FM synthesized music for the YM2612 FM chip to achieve 60 FPS. But the 2nd core on the old 3DS is unfortunately not fast enough to generate the FM synthesized music at a full 44100Hz, so sounds are generated at 30000Hz on an Old 3DS. It sounds ok for many games, except for those that use high-pitched notes or sound samples. The screen rendering is done completely using the original PicoDrive’s ARM processor-optimized renderer.

You can play Master System, Mega Drive games and Sega CD games, and 32X games. CD games run a little slower (you should enable 1-2 frameskips) on an old 3DS, but it runs very well on a new 3DS. 32X games can only played at a reasonable speed on a New 3DS using the .CIA version of the emulator. Some dynarec instructions for 32X games will crash the emulator (Virtual Fighter, Virtual Racing Deluxe have this issue).
