PCSX2 Git (2016/02/29)

EmuCR: PCSX2PCSX2 Git (2016/02/29) is compiled. PCSX2 is an open source PlayStation 2 (PS2) emulator for the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. With the most recent versions, many PS2 games are playable (although speed limitations have made play-to-completion tests for many games impractical), and several games are claimed to have full functionality.

PCSX2 Git Changelog:
* Merge pull request #1202 from PCSX2/atomic-v2
Atomic v2
* Common: delete most of the deprecated atomic API
* Common: port code to std::atomic
* MTVU: port ScopedLockBool to std::atomic
* MTVU: partially port code to MTVU
Remains volatize as MTGS and the ScopedLockBool stuff
* VU: port BaseVUmicroCPU to std::atomic
* GS.h: use std::atomic
* MTGS: port to std::atomic
Except the ring pointers m_ReadPos/m_WritePos because it requires
memory access optimization
* Deci2: port to std::atomic
* Gif: port code to std::atomic
* System: port to std::atomic
v2: use an explicit int type for clang
// multiple conversions from switch condition type
// ‘std::atomic‘ to an integral or enumeration type
v3/v4: use .load to read variable (clang 3.7)
v5: add back ‘std::atomic‘ now that .load is used everywhere
* PluginManager: port to std::atomic
* gui: use std::atomic bool to manage the gui
V2: Don’t use 64 bits atomic (I’m not sure it is legal on 32 bits)
Note: Clang-3.7 fails to link
* EE: use std::atomic for reset variable
* common:threading: Port NonblockingMutex to std::atomic_flag
* common: port ScopedPtrMT to std::atomic
v2: s/NULL/nullptr/
v3: tentative fix for MSVC
// ScopedPtrMT.h(91, 0): error C2593: ‘operator ==’ is ambiguous
* Merge pull request #1206 from pgert/master
Update & Improvements of Swedish GUI-translation.
* Update & Improvements of Swedish GUI-translation.
* windows: spu2-x does not use the emitter
So let’s not specify it as a build dependency.
Also remove some unnecessary manual library linkage and remove the
wsWidgets GUI property sheet, which does nothing useful.
* 3rdparty: add zlib project reference to libpng
It was missing.
* gsnull: Remove GSsetWindowInfo
PCSX2 doesn’t actually use it.
GSnull also seems a bit behind the current GS plugin API – perhaps it
should be removed.
* xpad: Change to Unicode project and remove unused headers
Also remove an unnecessary ASSERT define, and delete the copy

MESS Git (2016/02/29)

EmuCR: MESSMESS Git (2016/02/29) is compiled. MESS(Multi Emulator Super System) is an open source emulator which emulates a large variety of different systems.

registered VFS paths. For example, save state icons.
* SaveState: Clean up some constant usage.
* Merge pull request #8614 from unknownbrackets/vbo-freelist
Maintain and use a freelist for buffer objects

* Merge pull request #8613 from hrydgard/iso-filesystem-lazy
“Lazy load” directory information in ISOFilesystem

* ISOFileSystem coding style cleanup to reduce future diffs
* Better way to find the git exe for git-version-gen, thanks Unknown.
* x86-64: Fix L bit in VEX instruction emitter. Ported fix from Citra.
Currently unused in the emulator, though.

Dolphin Git 4.0-9026

EmuCR: DolphinDolphin Git 4.0-9026 is compiled. This is the trunk of Dolphin Project. Dolphin is the first Gamecube emulator able to run commercial games! Dolphin is a Gamecube, Wii and Triforce (the arcade machine based on the Gamecube) emulator which supports many extra features and abilities not present on the original consoles. It has a partial Wii support and plays most Gamecube games.

Dolphin Git changelog:
* Merge pull request #3355 from mimimi085181/partial-texture-updates-check-dimensions
Partial texture updates: Check the dimensions of the efb copy
* Copy all layers of textures with CopyRectangleFromTexture
* For partial texture updates check the dimensions of the efb copy and the target texture, not just the binary size.
This should get Donkey Kong Country Returns characters to be as broken as they should be. They will be fixed in a later pr.
Expected result is:
efbtex: characters are always flickering or invisible, no matter what scaling or IR setting
efb2ram: characters are always working properly at 1xIR, no matter what scaling or IR setting
* Merge pull request #3681 from degasus/arm
JitArm64: Don’t generate the carry if it’s not used any more.
* JitArm64: Don’t generate the carry if it’s not used any more.

OpenMSX Git (2016/02/29)

EmuCR:OpenMSX OpenMSX Git (2016/02/29) is complie. OpenMSX is an open source MSX emulator which is free according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines, available under the GNU General Public License.For copyright reasons the emulator cannot be distributed with original BIOS ROM images. OpenMSX includes C-BIOS a minimal implementation of the MSX BIOS, allowing to play quite some games without the need to have an original MSX BIOS ROM image. You can also use your own BIOS ROM image if you please.

OpenMSX Git Changelog:
* Cancel after-callback when reusing text_box widget
See this thread for the original problem description:
Summary plus analysis of the problem:
– OpenMSX is asked to take a screenshot every frame.
– Taking a screenshot prints a OSD message, this uses a text_box widget.
– A text_box widget registers 2 after callbacks, one for the fade-out and one
for the on-click action.
– When the text_box widget is destroyed or, like in this scenario, reused for
the next message, only the on-click callback is canceled. We forgot to cancel
the fade-out callback.
– The fade-out callback triggers after 2.5 seconds. But if at that time the
text_box widget still exists (it does in the above scenario), a new
(additional) fade-out callback is scheduled.
– So the total number of callbacks keeps on growing over time. (At least for as
long as the screenshot script keeps running. After it’s stopped, or paused
for 2.5s, everything returns to normal).
As is often the case: once the problem is know, fixing it isn’t too hard. So
this patch also cancels the fade-out callback when reusing a text_box widget.

Pantheon v4.268

EmuCR: PantheonPantheon v4.268 is released. Pantheon is Windows desktop application with collection of games for video consoles and home computers from the past. The games are not the part of the application, instead they will be downloaded (with the game manual or review – if available) from the internet, after you activate the game. Downloaded files are stored on the local file system and will be available offline the next time you wish to play the game. Finally, the program file is loaded into the memory and executed inside the emulator. Current version has emulator of Atari 2600 with collection of 170 games, emulator of Atari 5200 with collection of 50 games and emulator of Atari 8-bit computers with collection of 26 games.

Pantheon is still in development, new features and games are added almost every day. But you may experience occasional artifacts or crashes during the gameplay, and game snapshots may not be available in the following releases.
