With this frontend, you can change practically any option that is available in the emulator, like the screen resolution, sound quality, game options, etc. There are lots of extra features that makes your life much more easier, like the snapshots viewer where all captured images from M.A.M.E. games can be viewed when selecting games.

– Small update. There’s a bug when using small tool bar buttons (error at startup).

Nintendulator v0.965 (2009/03/16)

Nintendulator v0.965 (2009/03/16) is released. Nintendulator is an open source Win32 NES emulator written in C (plus some assembly optimization). The original goal was to emulate the NES down to its hardware quirks; though it’s fallen behind over the years, recent builds have caught up once again and can emulate certain behaviors most other emulators neglect to handle. However, this emulation precision comes at a price – a 1500MHz (estimated) or faster CPU is required to emulate at full speed.

Supported file formats include .NES, UNIF, FDS (fwNES format), and NSF. Mappers are handled using external DLLs, complete with extra sound channels for most games which provide them. Other notable features include writing to FDS images (by storing the differences in the SRAM folder), Game Genie support (limited to 3 codes), customizeable controllers (including 4 player), input movie recording and playback (with re-recording), AVI capturing, and a debugger.

Nintendulator v0.965 (2009/03/16) changelog:
Fixed a rather glaring bug (pointed out by a user) which caused read/write breakpoints to not trigger on unindexed accesses (e.g. LDA $2002 or STA $4015) and another bug which caused all instructions not reading from memory to trip breakpoints specified on address $0000.

LilyPad 0.9.11

LilyPad 0.9.11 is released.LilyPad is a input plugin for PS2 emulators.Currently the most functional PS2 Pad Plugin, created by ChickenLiver. This one has proved very popular providing support for keyboard, mouse,gamepads and xbox360 controllers!

LilyPad 0.9.11 Changelog:
– Note that force feedback bindings will be lost when upgrading, due to some changes in the ini format.
– Added PadFreeze function so no longer have to wait for pad to be initialized before loading states with any games. Requires PCSX2 r791 or later for this to work.
– Hack to display current save state number in window title.
– Removed “Enable pressure sensitive buttons” button. Now attempt to autodect when you’re trying to bind one. If that fails, there’s also a pulldown with similar functionality.
– Added Vista-only option that uses Vista’s current process-only volume control stuff to make volume keys/knobs only affects PCSX2, when PCSX2 is running and GS window is in front.
– Fullscreen escape hack should no longer break GSDX+DX9.
– Removed all “axis” buttons, as they’re no longer needed in any situations.
– Can select multiple bindings to set their sensitivity/turbo values at once.
– Removed extra buttons that were supposed to be hidden from the guitar configuration screen. 0.9.5’s new force feedback stuff caused them to no longer be hidden.
– Display force feedback axis names
– Disabled/bindingless DirectInput devices are no longer instantiated except during device enumeration in an attempt to circumvent potential DirectInput/XInput infighting.
– Bug when refreshing devices when device added/removed fixed.
– Display current version in config screen title and about dialog.
– “GS Thread updates” disabled and grayed out for PSX emulators.
– Fixed a pair of bugs with flipped controls and sensitivity > 1.
– Fixed a bug with only using half the range of pressure sensitive buttons.
– “Ignore keyboard” removed from device list. Testing it didn’t work and wouldn’t serve any real purpose even if it did. “Test device” is really only intended for DirectInput and XInput devices, anyways, though it should work fine for everything else listed as well.
– Fixed a couple issues with disconnected devices.
– Removed some unnecessary mouse capture code for mouse raw input.
– Renamed some options in the menus to be more end user friendly.
– Other miscellaneous interfaces changes.

Rankings for MAME 0.130

Rankings 0.130 is released.Rankings is the current home of rankings.ini, a MAMEUI support file that categorizes all original MAME games according to how much FUN they are to play.This file was created for a variety of reasons, but primarily because I felt it helps people have more fun with MAME. It’s a bit daunting sifting through 7000+ games in MAME trying to find something fun. Hopefully this will make the task easier!

Rankings 0.130 Changelog:
– 0 (Not Working): The game doesn’t work at all. Note that this includes all games marked as “GAME_NOT_WORKING” in MAME; but is not limited to them. This is because I believe there are several games that should have the “GAME_NOT_WORKING” flag set but for whatever reason (oversight, most likely) they do not.
– 10 or 20 (Terrible): The game is utter garbage and really not worth playing at all.
– 30 or 40 (Poor): The game play is not good, the frame rate, colors, responsiveness may be substandard, or the game itself may be a bad rip-off of another, original game.
– 50 or 60 (Average): The game doesn’t feature anything particular interesting or unique, though it may be worth playing every once in a while.
– 70 or 80 (Good): The game is definitely worth playing but falls short in some areas.
– 90 or 100 (Great): The best stuff is here. This includes all games considered “classics” but also includes games that are just a whole lot of fun to play.

Just download the .ini file and drop it into your “./folders” directory underneath the MAMEUI parent.
