[msx] fMSX 3.7 dla Windows za darmo

Marat Fayzullin zadeklarował, że jego emulator fMSX  dla Windows będzie dostępny bezpłatnie, do tej pory program należał do programów typu shareware i rejestracja wynosiła około 20$.

fMSX był jednym z pierwszych programów do przyzwoicie emulować komputery z rodziny MSX (MSX, MSX2, MSX2+), a przez  został przeniesiony do wielu innych platformach. Mimo, że te porty są zazwyczaj bezpłatnie, emulator dla Windows zawsze był płatny - aż do dziś.

Cóż, biorąc pod uwagę, że Marat skupił się w chwili obecnej nad płatnymi emulatorami dla urządzeń mobilnych, do ładny gest.


New in This Version

  • fMSX-Windows is now free!
  • Added accurate R register emulation, many protected boot loaders run now.
  • Added accurate LDIR/LDDR emulation, more protected boot loaders run now.
  • Added undocumented opcode 71h to the Z80 emulation.
  • Added more realistic "LD R,A" opcode to the Z80 emulation.
  • Added cartridge type lookup by its SHA1 checksum, as listed in the CARTS.SHA file.
  • Updated EMULib to a newer, more stable version.
  • Switched fMSX-Windows version to use Direct3D in full-screen mode.
  • Added proper Windows joystick support.
  • Now properly restoring full-screen mode in fMSX-Windows.
  • Fixed a bug in fMSX-Unix that corrupted memory on most platforms but, for some reason, not on Ubuntu Linux.
  • Added a separate Rules.Solaris make rules file. Include this file into your Makefile instead of Rules.Unix to compile for Solaris and don't forget about removing -DLSB_FIRST on SPARC hardware.
  • Fixed compilation warnings when compiling fMSX with CLANG.

New in fMSX 3.5

  • After a long pause, finally updated fMSX-Unix port. fMSX-Unix source code is once again available as part of the core source code distribution. It has been debugged on the Ubuntu Linux. Let me know of any incompatibilities with other Unix flavors.
  • Extended fMSX-Symbian port to support UIQ3 phones from Sony Ericsson and Motorola. As I only have key-operated Motorola Z8, testers with pen-based SE phones are badly needed.
  • Added run-time compatibility with 8bpp, 16bpp, 24bpp (32bit pixels) and 32bpp screen depths to fMSX-Unix. IMPORTANT: At this moment, built-in config menu, debugger, and NetPlay dialog will only work at X11 screen depth that matches your compile-time setting (i.e. -DBPPxx) in Makefile. Make sure you always compile fMSX-Unix for your default screen depth.
  • Disabled secondary slots for primary slot #0 in MSX1 mode. DiskROM boots in MSX1 mode again.
  • Now syncing all sound channels after loading state, sound does not get "stuck" any more.
  • Renamed command line option -zoom/-nozoom into -soft/-nosoft.
  • Moved a few key definitions, so that "!@#$%^..." characters can now be used as indices into Keys[]. This is done for compatibility with GDK key events.
  • Renamed KeyMap[] to KeyState[] to avoid name clash with MacOSX system API.
  • ALT swaps joysticks 1/2 on all platforms where applicable.
  • CONTROL/SHIFT keys now act as FIRE-A/FIRE-B joystick buttons on all platforms.
  • Improved fMSX-Symbian sound code, although sound problems still persist on some UIQ3 phones.
  • Split fMSX-Symbian/S60 configuration menu into four tabs, making "Video" and "Audio" settings separate.
  • Added "Audio Latency", "Skip Frames", and "Sync Updates" settings to fMSX-Symbian.
  • Added to fMSX-Symbian ability to use Nokia E61/E62 [FUNC] key in the built-in menu.

  • Pressing [8] key on fMSX-Symbian now invokes virtual keyboard, if enabled, for the phones which do not have the [EDIT] key.

New in fMSX 3.4

  • Added network play option to fMSX-Windows and fMSX-Symbian!
  • Now not opening printer file until the first character is printed.

  • No longer trying to load state files from LoadFile().
  • Defined "INLINE" properly, depending on the C standard supported by the compiler.
  • Finally retired #ifdef SOUND as sound is always compiled in anyway.
  • Added new, much better, scanline simulation and video softening effects to fMSX-Windows.
  • fMSX-Windows full-screen mode now runs in 640x480 resolution.
  • Fixed problem with full-screen SCREEN 6/7 in fMSX-Windows.

  • Added options to simulate TV scanlines (-tv/-notv) and zoom display (-zoom/-nozoom) to fMSX-MSDOS.
  • Options -sync/-nosync/-vsync work properly again in fMSX-MSDOS.

  • Added ability to use virtual keyboard in fMSX-Symbian to enter filename when saving files from the built-in menu.
  • Fixed problem with gameplay being too fast in fMSX-Symbian.
  • Fixed possible source of instabilities in the S60 open file dialog in fMSX-Symbian.
  • Fixed exit via Symbian-specific menu.
  • Fixed premature termination of the emulation thread when exiting fMSX-Symbian, soundtrack recording and config saving work again.
  • The [C] ("Clear") key is no longer used to toggle sound in fMSX-Symbian. It acts as [BACKSPACE] instead.

New in fMSX 3.3
