[multi] RetroArch/Core 1.17 3/02/2024

Nowe poprawki w RetroArch, w chwili obecnej to chyba najbardziej uniwersalny system, który wykorzystujący rdzenie innych emulatorów pozwala pograć w stare gry na praktycznie wszystkim.

Wielki to projekt i naprawdę spore możliwości, czy najlepszy? Cóż zależy jak bardzo lubimy poszczególne emulatory wpięte w aplikację;)

Jakoż, że samych wersji tej aplikacji jest naprawdę porażająco dużo po download odsyłam do oficjalnej strony projektu.

  • INPUT: Send keyboard events for modifiers before other keys (for correct modifier+key input if hitboxes overlap)
  • INPUT: Remember currently set keyboard mapping bits during same config read, because otherwise customized keybinds can get cleared out of the bits on the next iteration, causing keyboard events to get passed to the core when they should get blocked.
  • INPUT/AUTOCONFIG: Reinit after updating autoconf profiles
  • INPUT/LINUX/UDEV: Log mouse devices in info level
  • INPUT/LINUX/UDEV: First working version of udev driver with touchscreen support and gestures.

  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Overlay Caching. Adds overlay_cache_ptr to keep a disabled overlay in memory when it's expected to be shown again. Most input_overlay_deinit calls are replaced with input_overlay_unload, which caches the overlay unless initing/deiniting core or disabling overlays. Loading a cached overlay is done as a swap, intended for osk_toggle.
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Add input_overlay_check_mouse_cursor() to preserve show/hide mouse behavior
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Don't apply input_overlay_show_mouse_cursor in windowed mode (controlled by mouse grab only)

RetroArch 1.15.0

  • AI SERVICE: Fix NVDA switching to Powershell on speak
  • ANDROID: In Android builds, add input_android_physical_keyboard configuration option and its corresponding menu entry to force a device to act as a physical keyboard. When running on Android, RetroArch considers most devices that emit dpad events as gamepads, even if they also emit other keyboard events; this is usually the right thing to do, but it has the side effect of not letting some actual keyboards (e.g.: Logitech K480) act as such inside RetroArch. This configuration option allows users to manually select a specific input device to act as a physical keyboard instead of a gamepad, which is handy when emulating computers as opposed to consoles.
  • APPLE: Add App Category to a few places it should have been
  • APPLE/MFI: Prevent crash when controller player index is unset (-1)
  • AUTOMATIC FRAME DELAY: Helped delay to decrease easier when it should and helped delay to stay put when it should when triggering pause & menu with or without pause & fast-forward & slow-motion & geometry change
  • AUTOMATIC FRAME DELAY: Recalibrate delay on video reinit (fullscreen toggle and such)
  • AUTOMATIC FRAME DELAY: Show (x effective) only in menu item and not in dropdown list items when auto is enabled
  • CHEEVOS: Allow repositioning of RetroAchievement notifications
  • CHEEVOS/MENU: Add Achievements Visibility submenu option
  • CHEEVOS/MENU: Startup Summary split off from Verbose Mode, added option to hide for games with zero core cheevos
  • CHEEVOS/MENU: 'Unlocks/Mastery' split into two options
  • CHEEVOS/MENU: 'Account/Login Messages' split off from 'Verbose', gated all login success/error messages
  • CONFIG/INPUT: Unload restores current global config
  • CONFIG/INPUT/OVERRIDES: Removing a file does not unload current override
  • CONFIG/INPUT/OVERRIDES: Saving an empty override removes the file if it exists, and won't save when it does not
  • CONFIG/INPUT/OVERRIDES: Prevent the use of RUNLOOP_FLAG_OVERRIDES_ACTIVE with appendconfig
  • CORE OPTION: Core option setting type checks. Added checks for getting and setting core option type, since otherwise there will be a crash on close content after browsing to core option categories. Also fixed the no-show switch icon for lone wolf "Lock Installed Core".
  • CLI: Update selected save slot when start with cli --entryslot
  • CLI: Decouple config CLI append and config overrides
  • CLI/MENU/XMB: Stop showing bogus previous icon on CLI launch
  • D3D9: Fixed display driver scissoring implementation - can now accept 0 width/height
  • D3D10: Fixed display driver scissoring implementation - can now accept 0 width/height
  • D3D11: Fixed display driver scissoring implementation - can now accept 0 width/height
  • D3D11: Fixed build when HAVE_DXGI_HDR is not defined
  • D3D11: Moved waitable swapchain waiting to happen always even when resizing swapchain
  • D3D12: Fixed display driver scissoring implementation - can now accept 0 width/height
  • D3D12: Fixed window scaling issue, which was caused by swapchain resize function not using the same flags (waitable swapchain) as swapchain creation
  • D3D12: Fixed swapchain scissoring issue (visual + crash) after manually resizing window to smaller size
  • D3D12: Fixed eventual crashing issue on video reinit when swapchain is being freed

  • EMSCRIPTEN: Add HAVE_PATCH support for Emscripten
  • EMSCRIPTEN: Add BSV/Replay support for Emscripten
  • EMSCRIPTEN: Add command and stdin_cmd features to emscripten RA. update libretro.js to show how commands could be sent over emscripten stdin.
  • FRAME DELAY/MENU: Show Frame Delay without VSync
  • GENERAL: Start unpause restriction. Limit the feature using retropad start button to unpause RA to the setting it was made for; "pause on controller disconnect".
  • GENERAL: Savestate thumbnail aspect ratio fallback. Thanks to at least one certain core that announces aspect ratio as 0, we have to add the same fallback in savestate thumbnails that is happening elsewhere in normal video driver use anyway.
  • GENERAL: Add support for system subdirs per core/database. Added the trivial and graceful automatic ability to send a different system directory to cores if it exists, for keeping the system dir more sane. First by using the core/library name just like in configs and saves, and then by playlist name, like in thumbnails, and of course default to the current global system dir.
  • GENERAL: Ignore system subdir replacement if subdir has subdirs.
  • GENERAL: Restore cached video driver always on quit
  • IOS: Include 'Update Core Info Files'
  • IOS: Fix #14778 - In addition to sending logs to asl_client, add them to the logfile.
  • IOS/VULKAN/MOLTENVK: Vulkan video driver on iOS
  • LATENCY/PREEMPTIVE FRAMES: Add Preemptive Frames to Latency Settings. RunAhead alternative that reruns core logic to "rewrite history" before the current frame. Frames are only rerun when the controller state changes, so it's faster overall.
  • LATENCY/PREEMPTIVE FRAMES: Call retro_run before retro_serialize (#14893). Fixes preemptive frames not starting up with a few cores
  • LIBRETRO-COMMON/VFS/FILESTREAM: Fixes filestream_vscanf regression
  • LOCALIZATION: Updates
  • LOCALIZATION: Enable localization of video rotation, orientation, and aspect ratio option values.
  • LOCALIZATION: Mixer stream localization also added
  • LOCALIZATION/MENU/HELP: Context dependent help text for audio and video drivers. Language corrections
  • LOCALIZATION/MENU/LANGUAGE: Language submenu now shows the progress of translated strings for each language.
  • LOCALIZATION: Help texts now localizable through Crowdin.
  • LIBRETRO: Enable RETRO_ENVIRONMENT_SET_SUPPORT_NO_GAME for libretro-video-processor
  • LIBRETRO/HW: Add GET_HW_CONTEXT_NEGOTIATION_INTERFACE_SUPPORT. Works around issues in v1 interface where it was not possible to query what frontend would do when faces with newer interface versions. This env-call gives stronger guarantees how things have to work.
  • INPUT: Allowing keyboard hotkeys to work without hotkey modifier if modifier is only mapped to RetroPad
  • INPUT: Allowing keyboard hotkey keys for typing if hotkey modifier is set to keyboard but not pressed
  • INPUT: Allowing keyboard RetroPad keys for typing if emulated device type is "None"
  • INPUT/AUTOCONFIG: Check for 'enable_hotkey' also from autoconf binds
  • INPUT/BLUETOOTH: Fix a crash in for BT HID devices. (#14922) pad_connection_destroy() frees slots, no need to free it again.
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Don't start video recording when BSV recording starts
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Don't double-record inputs in BSV recording
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Don't autoload states if a BSV file is being played back or recorded
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Moved BSV initialization before autoload code
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Don't trigger autoload code if there is bsv movie state
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Allow for both -e and -R to start a BSV file recording at a state
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Add keyboard recording support to BSV
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Fix BSV playback from a starting state for DOSbox
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Associate states with replays. Now states can be saved and loaded during replay recording and playback in a way that keeps the integrity of the recording. Recordings also have a (moderately) unique identifier associated with them.
  • INPUT/BSV/REPLAY: Add checkpointing feature for replay recordings. If cores are not deterministic, or if they only have bounded determinism, we can obtain less drift if replay files also contain periodic checkpoint states. These are configured by the new retroarch setting replay_checkpoint_interval (measured in seconds). States are inserted into the replay file in between frames. This also fixes the settings display for the replay autoincrement max keep setting.
  • INPUT/FRAMEADVANCE: Use non-rendering pause mode when frameadvance is triggered
  • INPUT/HOTKEYS/OVERLAYS: Do not block input overlay hotkeys
  • INPUT/HOTKEYS: Hotkey blocking correction. Turned out the previous hotkey blocking changes worked properly only with winraw driver and not the rest (at least with Windows), because input_keyboard_event() could be called at the wrong moment, and thus storing keyboard menu press there broke the separation of controller Guide menu button and keyboard menu key. Also allowed the blocking to work in both directions so that controller hotkeys won't get blocked if only keyboard has "enable_hotkey" bind.
  • INPUT/LINUX/UDEV: Fix udev guns input when id_mouse is not id_joystick
  • MENU: Rename 'Standalone Cores' to 'Contentless Cores'
  • MENU: Music files should also obey builtin_mediaplayer_enable (#14967) Disabling the built in media player should be possible for music files as well. Without this, sound files can not be opened from file browser with cores that support them.
  • MENU: Relocated items to a more logical order
  • MENU: Corrected some title capitalizations (when/before/after are not low case, but for/the/a are)
  • MENU/AUDIO: Add dropdown menu for audio device
  • MENU/HELP: Help for turbo modes (#14919). Help text added for each of the selectable turbo modes.
  • MENU/INPUT: Add unified back action to all menu drivers. Usability boost for all menu drivers resulting in similar behavior as with Ozone currently, which is pressing back/cancel enough the selection jumps first to Main Menu and when pressed again jumps to the first item, so that when a core is running, Quick Menu is very quickly accessible from anywhere. And when core is not running, the first item would be Load Core.
  • MENU/INPUT: Override bind save + menu manager overhaul

  • MENU/XMB: Changed XMB Explore View title to match Ozone
  • MENU/XMB: Added "Switch Icons" option

  • MENU/XMB: Changed thumbnail shadow to outline and tightened fullscreen thumbnail margins
  • MENU/XMB: Adjusted global shadow opacity
  • MENU/XMB: Remove "Framebuffer opacity" from XMB as it does not use it. Also, rename the corresponding menu title, since "framebuffer" is not that intuitive.
  • MENU/OZONE: Fixed playlist manager icons to take Explore Views into account properly
  • MENU/OZONE: Refresh thumbnail on close content hotkey
  • MENU/OZONE: Ozone footer enhancements (#14926). Add Help button (Select) and Reset to Default (Start) to footer where applicable.

  • MENU/SOUNDS: Add scrolling sounds for RGUI, XMB, MaterialUI and Ozone.
  • MENU/SOUNDS: Better scrolling sound implementation, add new 'notice back' sound
  • MENU/SOUNDS: Scroll sound fixes. Correctly get list size in xmb.c for playing scrolling sound when switching categories, play the scrolling sound when pressing cancel in ozone, play the sound when scrolling with ZL and ZR, play the correct sound when scrolling with L
  • MENU/WIDGETS: Show square sized widget on volume mute. Volume widget is currently fixed size always, and thus showing a lot of empty space when muting, therefore shorten the box to icon size only when muting.
  • MIYOO: L3/R3 support for Dingux Gamepad controller device.
  • NETWORKING: Call ssl_socket_close for SSL sockets
  • NETWORKING/CHEEVOS: net_http - Temporary fix for cheevos crash. Don't use new timeout/poll code for cheevos HTTP requests.
  • NETWORKING/MENU: Network information cleanup:
  • NETWORKING/MENU: Remove extra space from: delimiter
  • NETWORKING/MENU: Trim useless/duplicate garbage from the end of ipv6 address. Windows shows %[adapter number], Linux shows %[adapter name], which already shows before the address
  • NETWORKING/STDIN: Add LOAD_STATE_SLOT N command to stdin/network protocol
  • OSD/STATISTICS: Add Run-Ahead data to on-screen statistics
  • OSD/STATISTICS: Notification font + statistics adjustments

  • OSX/MACOS: Make sure to use the file system path name, not the URL name
  • OSX/MACOS/IOHIDMANAGER: Various memory access fixes to prevent crashes (#14459) (#15000). Prevent double free and null dereference when the controller is quickly reconnected. Handle error when controller device query returns null instead of crashing.
  • OSX/MACOS/METAL BUILD: Fix input events (keyboard/mouse) sometimes going lost when switching between fullscreen and windowed mode. Fixes lots of longstanding issues
  • OSX/MACOS/OPENGL: Fix for fullscreen OpenGL driver in Metal macOS build
  • OSX/MACOS/VULKAN/MOLTENVK: Default to Vulkan driver when available (for 10.13 Metal Universal build)
  • OSX/MACOS/VULKAN/MOLTENVK: Updated Vulkan on Metal for OSX via MoltenVK
  • OSX/MACOS/VULKAN/MOLTENVK/HDR: Fix non-HDR colors
  • OSX/MACOS/SLANG: The change to apply shaders would be executed and then a command to apply shaders would immeidately be enqueued, to run asynchronously after the current event handler, which then did exactly the same. Fixes issue #14789 - Turning on shaders on Metal build 1.14.0 stable for Mac OS will slow emulation drastically thing, creating a busy loop.
  • PS2: Avoid loading extra drivers when not needed. Fixed a bug where it wasn't using the variable extra_drivers, for loading the specific IRX needed drivers. This is increasing compatibility with some specific PS2 models that sometimes fail when loading cores.
  • PS3/PSL1GHT: Add improvements to the RSX driver (#14965)
  • PS3/PSL1GHT: Add modern_alpha_blend and modern_opaque rsx shaders

  • PS3/PSL1GHT: Fix HTTP download
  • QB/CONFIGURE: Add new flags - HAVE_UPDATE_CORE_INFO, ASSETS_DIR, FILTERS_DIR
  • RECORDING: Add recordings to video history playlist
  • REWIND: Don't take rewind steps while menu pause active
  • RUNLOOP: Currently when core is paused, video output will be stopped completely too, making it impossible to animate widgets while paused, therefore:
  • RUNLOOP: Added a new runloop state for pause which renders last cached frame
  • RUNLOOP: Allowed rewinding while paused so that it acts like backwards frameadvance. Also moved rewind step taking before menu iteration so that steps won't be lost while in menu when menu_pause is disabled
  • RUNLOOP: State load and reset while paused will forget pause for x frames in order to show proper output
  • RUNLOOP: Allowed reading pause hotkey while menu is active
  • RUNLOOP: Allowed reading screenshot hotkey while menu is active
  • RUNLOOP: Joined 2 fullscreen hotkey checks to one (Any ideas why they were separated for paused and non-paused states, since one works fine for both..?)
  • RUNLOOP: Implement GET_HW_CONTEXT_NEGOTIATION_INTERFACE_SUPPORT. Fairly trivial. Just report the latest version.
  • SAVESTATES: State slot hotkey adjustments -
  • SAVESTATES: Allow selecting -1 Auto slot with hotkeys
  • SAVESTATES: Allow wrap-around from -1 to 999 and backwards
  • SAVESTATES: Show failure message when trying to load a state that does not exist instead of plain "Loading state"
  • SAVESTATES: Shorten the duration of slot change notification
  • SAVESTATES: Change the widget type to the same type as shader toggle for better back and forth action. Closes [Widgets] Save state slot switcher
  • SHADERS: Append Preset feature
  • SHADERS: Prepend Preset feature
  • SHADERS: Shader Preset - Wildcard Replacement in Paths on Load. When a simple preset loads, text wildcards which are found in paths inside the presets will be replaced with values coming from the current RetroArch context. The replacement will be executed on both texture paths and reference paths.
  • SHADERS/SLANG/SPIRVCROSS: Update to latest SPIRV-Cross, fixing Metal shader compilation issues along the way
  • STATICALLY LINKED/SALAMANDER: Fix salamander config save on fork for static platforms
  • TVOS/VULKAN/MOLTENVK: Vulkan on tvOS
  • VIDEO: Allow manual video swap interval forcing. The addition of auto swap interval effectively prevented manual forcing, which is beneficial when the rate is not reported properly. Therefore use the interval in the calculation only when using automatic interval.
  • VULKAN: Fix crash when using multiple physical devices and HW core (#14889)
  • VULKAN: Detect if wrong PhysicalDevice is returned.
  • VULKAN: Actually query physical device before creating core device.
  • VULKAN: Define and implement v2 of context negotiation interface
  • VULKAN: Add v2 of context negotiation interface.
  • VULKAN: Add vkEnumerateInstanceVersion symbol.
  • VULKAN: Implement v2 context negotiation
  • VULKAN: Use compute shaders to upload RGB565
  • VULKAN: Fix regression with RGB565 and OriginalHistory.
  • VULKAN/WAYLAND: Don't clamp the number of requested images. Due to an unfortunate "feature", MESA always reports 4 as the Vulkan surface's minImageCount in Wayland. However, values of 2 and 3 work perfectly well, even if they are out of spec, providing way better latencies when using the Vulkan backend on Wayland. So this removes the artificial clamping that was being done to desired_swapchain_images, because it's not really necessary and was causing very noticeable input lag on Wayland+Vulkan.
  • VULKAN/MENU/RGUI: Fix RGUI on Vulkan on platforms that don't have _pack16 VkFormats
  • VULKAN/MACOS/OSX: avoid using _PACK16 pixel formats on platforms without them
  • WAYLAND: On scaled desktops the wayland backend deciding to resize based on values multiplied by the scale factor twice. Resulting in continuous attempts to rebuild the swapchain when in fullscreen.
  • WAYLAND: Wait for splash screen configuration. Before, configuration (resize) events for the initial wayland window could happen before or after set_video_mode which could result in a small or corrupted window. Now we make sure that the initial window has processed it's resize events before window size is set by set_video_mode.
  • WAYLAND: Changes the initial window to show a RetroArch logo copied from the icon of the X11 backend.
  • WAYLAND: Build pointer-constraints and relative-pointer protocols.
  • WAYLAND/GL: GL is sometimes not rescaling property (Super + Left).
  • WIN32: Ignore window limiting with fixed position. The other resizing part already took this into account, but WM_GETMINMAXINFO did not.
  • WIN32/INPUT: Add support for mouse button swap
  • WIN32: Fix keyboard event characters. Added sending key chars to all input drivers (currently they only send scan codes), and also missing mods for raw.
  • WIN32: Fix restart if path has spaces. CreateProcess does not like to have anything executable path related in the second parameter lpCommandLine if the path has spaces. Thus strip everything from args except the actual parameters.

RetroArch 1.14.0

  • AUDIO/COREAUDIO/APPLE: Allow coreaudio3 driver to work with audio devices that have 2 or more output channels

  • D3D12: Added support for DRED (device remove extended data) (development aid - define DEVICE_DEBUG to use)
  • D3D12: Made D3D12 viewport and scissors to behave more like Vulkan drivers (or be more correct)
  • D3D12: Fixed validation error on start up due to buffers not being setup correctly for one frame
  • D3D12: Fixed some shaders not appearing with the d3d12 driver - this reintroduces a validation error though but it seems to work as in not crash and is the old RA behaviour. Guess we need a different way of fixing the validation issue.
  • DATABASE/EXPLORE/VIEW: Bugfix - RGUI did not clear thumbnail on non-playlist items such as Save and Delete menu_explore_get_entry_playlist_index() returns -1 on invalid entries, but the variable where it was stored was unsigned
  • DATABASE/EXPLORE/VIEW: Bugfix - XMB+Ozone cleared thumbnail in Quick Menu when navigating away from Run
  • DRM/ODROID GO2: Implement get_video_size for DRM GL context driver
  • FASTFORWARD: Restore framelimit on fastforward toggle. Fast-forward was broken after toggling vrr_runloop off, since it will force frame limit to 1.0 (even on every frame) and never restores it. So let's make sure the wanted ratio is applied when toggling FF (Fastforward).
  • FFMPEG CORE: Fix runtime error in FFmpeg core when build with FFmpeg n5.1.2 and OpenGL ES
  • GFX/VIDEO FILTERS: (picoscale_256x_320x240) Added snn function to upscale Fuse (ZX Spectrum) core borderless output to 320x240. ZX Spectrum resolution of 256x192 was previously unsupported.

  • LEAPFROG: Add Leapfrog (LFx000) Target
  • LOCALIZATION: Updates
  • LOCALIZATION/INPUT/IME/MENU/ONSCREEN KEYBOARD: Extended IME and Korean OSK
  • MENU: Cleanup of help texts
  • MENU: Allow toggling info off with the same button
  • MENU: Allow menu wallpaper/background reset. Let's also remove the current wallpaper from the screen when pressing Start.
  • MENU: Null driver shows with different color (Added for all menus the ability to show "disabled" items with a muted color)
  • MENU/DRIVERS: Menu driver first, Audio Resampler removed because it is enough to exist under audio settings
  • MENU/INPUT: Moved "Confirm Quit" to Input menu
  • MENU/INPUT/HOTKEYS: Input hotkey menu completely overhauled to keep related entries together, and also adjusted some labels and sublabels
  • MENU/OVERLAY: Fix overlays behind menu without core running. "Show Overlay Behind Menu" is currently broken with Ozone and XMB (with any other color theme than Plain) when running without a core.
  • MENU/MATERIALUI: Fix home screen on first startup - no more stray entries
  • MENU/OZONE: Allowed drawing sidebar and thumbnail bar background color also when core is running
  • MENU/OZONE: Stopped using different padding and position for savestate thumbnails vs imageviewer
  • MENU/OZONE: Removed gradient background effect when core is running, because some themes already have gradient background, which creates ugly rough steps
  • MENU/OZONE: Fixed "Gray Light" theme from using the same background as "Gray Dark", which makes selection cursor near impossible to see
  • MENU/OZONE: Some whitespace corrections
  • MENU/UX: Extend OFF menu value colors
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - Menu Visibility icons (Quick Menu + Settings)
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - Playlist Manager icons
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - Explore icon as database icon
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - View and filter icons as cursor icon (folder icon in GLUI)
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - View save + delete icons
  • MENU/UX: Menu icon improvements - Moved Explore + Views below Standalone Cores
  • MENU/UX/OZONE: Removed icons from menus where others items don't have icons, and added icons to menus where the rest have icons
  • MENU/UX/OZONE: Changed the way "no icon" is handled from kludgy way of not drawing SUBSETTING icon
  • MENU/UX/XMB: Changed playlist entry index positioning to bottom right when thumbnails are in vertical mode, because big lists will overlap with arrow and current "breadcrumb" icons when the position is next to current selection
  • MENU/UX/XMB: Added a rather nasty hack to prevent showing wrong icons under Explore as "breadcrumb" icon
  • MENU/UX/XMB: Optimized certain icon drawing loops (Main horizontal icons were looped even when not visible, and all previous "breadcrumb" icons were looped when only one certain was needed)
  • MENU/UX/MATERIALUI: Fixed showing icons where there should not be any (Waitable Swapchains, Show Recording + Streaming)
  • OSX/MACOS: Fixed Cocoa keyboard not allowing to map Analog stick
  • PS2: Use the recently created ps2_drivers which makes easier the loading and init of all the drivers: Memory Card, USB, HDD, Audio, Controllers
  • PS2: Adds exFat support for USB, and probably solves some unexpected issues when using an HDD driver for booting cores/games.
  • SDL GFX: Fix no menu on start/blank screen issue.
  • SRAM: Don't init SRAM saving without content (gets rid of the redundant logging)

  • IOS13+: Adds iPad Trackpad Support to iOS13 Project (for iOS 13.4 and above)
  • INPUT: Fixed the way devices were previously indexed. Input devices were only being indexed in order and would stop at the first time an input has no device connected to it. The problem is when a device gets disconnected, that input will have no devices connected to it, but the next input may still have a device connected. So, that makes changing the port of the currently connected devices impossible.
  • INPUT/AUTOCONFIG: Add option for pause on controller disconnect
  • INPUT/AUTOCONFIG: Driver independent disconnection notification. Should show disconnect notification now properly on Windows with XInput and/or DirectInput pads
  • INPUT/HID: Added usb hid controllers for the famous ZeroDelay encoder and also for "Kade: Kick Ass Dynamic Encoder" to be able to use some custom arcade sticks.
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Add eightway area types.
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Ignore hitboxes with zero area. I.e. Set 'reach_x' or 'reach_y' to zero to ensure no hitbox math is done. This simplifies designating animation-only descriptors (e.g. for eightway areas) or obsolete descriptors.
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Add 'reach' and 'exclusive' for hitboxes. Allows stretching hitboxes and handling their overlap.
  • INPUT/OVERLAY: Fix overlay next_index for unnamed targets

  • PS3: Fix Core Remap Overwrite Fail
  • QB: Don't fail if OSDependent/OGLCompiler libraries are not present
  • SCANNER/PS1: Improved scanning of PS1 discs
  • SCANNER/PS2: Added serial scanning of PS2 discs - should now scan DVDs and other discs which were previously missed
  • THUMBNAIL: If you rename title, you cannot use the thumbnail image. because the thumbnail filename and the title must be the same. If there is no thumbnail with title, find the thumbnail image with rom-name. This has nothing to do with IME.
  • THREADED VIDEO/GLCORE: Fix regression 'Shader presets dont load, when video driver is set to glcore'
  • VULKAN: Fix HDR inverse tonemapping. Only skip tonemapper if HDR10 is explicitly enabled by last shader pass. Otherwise, we are simply just inheriting the bit-depth of the swapchain.

  • NETWORK/NETPLAY/DISCOVERY: Support for IPv4 tunneling (6to4)
  • NETWORK/NETPLAY/DISCOVERY/TASKS: Netplay/LAN Discovery Task refactor - aims to prevent blocking the main thread while awaiting for the LAN discovery timeout; This is accomplished by moving the whole discovery functionality into its task and using a non-blocking timer to finish the task.

  • NETWORK/NETPLAY/TASKS: Find content task refactor - fixes many issues along the way, including a couple of nasty memory leaks that would leak thousands of bytes each time the task ran. It also expands the original concept by matching currently run content by filename (CRC matching is always performed first though).

  • SHADERS: Shader Preset Loading of Multiple additional #references lines for settings
  • SHADERS: Shader Load Extra Parameter Reference Files - this adds the ability to put additional #reference lines inside shader presets which will load additional settings. The first reference in the preset still needs to point at a chain of presets which ends with a shader chain, and subsequent #reference lines will load presets which only have parameter values adjustment. This allows presets to be made with a modular selection of settings. For example with the Mega Bezel one additional reference could point at a preset which contained settings for Night mode vs Day mode, and another reference could point to a preset which contained settings for how much the screen should be zoomed in.

  • ARCHIVE: Allow loading files from archive subdirectory
  • AUDIO: Remove frame limit from audio batch callback. Before, if a core used the audio batch callback, there would be a hidden cap of 1024 on the number of audio frames that could be sent. If a core exceeded this value, any excess samples were silently discarded. While this is sufficient for 'normal' samplerates/framerates, it means that e.g. a core using the batch callback to send 44100 Hz audio at 30 fps with would have entirely broken sound. This has been fixed by removing the audio batch frame limit.
