 RomVault v3.7.0 
Mercredi 03/04/24 à 14:20 par Firebrand
Ce gestionnaire de ROMs vient de recevoir une importante mise à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Excited to anounce the release of V3.7.0! One of the biggest feature update releases in a very long time.
This feature update list has been driven by two main big features adds:

Total DOS Collection, Date/Time
- Originally there was trrntzip formated zips, this format has served up well for many many years. It uses deflate compression (level 9) and a fixed date time of: 12/24/1996 11:32 PM Rumored to be the date MAME was first released! So I have been working closely with the main guy over at the Total DOS Collection for about the last 6 months (Thanks for all the great collaboration efforts), and am very please to anounch the first big upgrade to the zip format is TDCZip (Think of this as trrntzip with date/time support.), this turned into quite an adventure to get all the TDC zips supported in RomVault. Including discovering that ZIP's original date/time storage can and does store potentially invalid date/times suck as 1990/00/00 00:00:00 = month 0 , day 0, and invalid time can also be stored. Also had to rework my code support for code page 437 (as used in early zip filenames) as it turns out .NET's version of this code page does not correctly support the ASCII values below 32.
- The daily Total DOS collection DATs will now also be included in DatVault updates. DatVault will also contain a RomVault corrected TDC Release 21 DAT (Please don't try using the numbered release DATs from TDC, they are honestly a mess.), and also a daily Diff dat with just the news files in the Daily compared to the Release 21 DAT we be available in DatVault.

ZSTD Compression
- So while re-working the zip format it was also possible to add the next big update to ZIP... zstd compression zip. This timing turned out to be just about perfect as MAME can now support reading zstd compressed zips!
- What is zstd? It is a new compression methods invented by facebook devs, compresses better that deflate, compresses faster than deflate (With multi-threading compression!), and decompresses at crazy fast speeds, so it is win, win, win all the way around.
- Also WinRAR 7.x and 7zUI v24.x also now support zstd compressed zips, so zstd zip is now a very well supported compression system.
- So we now have what I am refering to as Structured archive formats:
*Trrntzip: Original format.
*TDCZip: Total DOS Collect Date/Time supported format.
*RVZSTD: RomVault zstd format
These are now the 3 supported structured ZIP formats in RV, but wait... theres more.. lets not leave out 7Z!
- 7Z got a big upgrade also, now supporting 4 different formats:
*LZMA-Solid: This is the originally supported 7z format
*LZMA-NonSolid: Added Nonsolid as a 7z supported option now
*zstd-Solid: ZSTD has arrived in 7z also
*zstd-NonSolid: Its here and uses the same compression as ZIP, (And can raw copy between NonSolid 7z's and zip!)
- As well as these two main features, there have been many equally imported enhancements such as better file fixing source priority selection, and better handling of zero byte files, now meaning zipmove can be used in more places.
Dark UI mode has been hiding in RV for a while, but has officially been added to the config UI.

TrrntzipUI becomes S.A.M. Structured Archive Maker
- With the arrival of more than just Trrtnzip, TrrntzipUI also needed an overhall, and has officially been renamed to Structred Archive Maker, It can now recompress all of the above structured archive formats. (With the exception of TDC, because you need to DAT to get the Date/time correct.) S.A.M. is now available from the RomVault top menu, and the stand along version will be released here soon.
- And..... just because people do ask for it: The command line versions for windows and Linux got an update with all the new v3.7 features.
- Thanks again for all the support, and help from my great freinds over in RomVault discord This great releases would not be what it is without your help and support.

So here the detailed list of all the updates and bug fixes in V3.7.0!

Feature Updates:
- Added new structured archive formats for zstd Zip/7z and TDC (Total DOS Collection) Zip
- Added the ability to raw copy zstd compressed files between archives
- Added raw copy functionality to and from 7z archives
- Added decompression support for several 7z compression filters
- Added support for DATs with timestamps (E.g. TDC)
- Added modified Date/Time to the Game List grid
- Added new graphics for the Game List grid to show current and preferred storage type
- Added multithreaded zstd compression options to Global Settings
- Added a Dark Mode toggle in Global Settings
- Enhanced ZipMove to work with zstd zip and 7z archives
- Enhanced ZipMove to work with TDC zip archives
- Enhanced archive fixing logic to use a priority system to pick the most efficient source for a fix
- Enhanced archive fixing logic so that 0-byte files are not prematurely deleted which would prevent ZipMove
- Improved performance of handling 0-byte files
- Improved error reporting
- Rebranded trrntzipUI to SAM (Structured Archive Maker) and added new zstd archive options

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed a crash that could occur if the DatRoot folder was missing and you attempted to add a directory from the DatVault UI
- Fixed a crash when ZipMove was wused on a set with NotCollected ROMs
- Fixed a crash related to the category reorder buttons
- Fixed a crash when loading old ROM Center DATs

- Fixed an issue with reading some DATs generated by FB Alpha
- Fixed an issue that could result in duplicate directory rules in the cache file
- Fixed an issue where repacking zips in a ToSort would modify the timestamps of the contents

 ares v137 
Lundi 01/04/24 à 16:54 par Firebrand
Cet émulateur multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
This is a relatively small update in terms of number of features/changes, however, the primary change is a big one I'm sure you all will love.

Slang Shader Pipeline (librashader)
- ares's shader pipelien has been re-created to support shaders written for the same slang shader pipeline as RetroArch.
- This was made possible thanks to librashader: a reimplementation of the RetroArch slang shader pipeline for standalone emulators.
- All shaders from libretro/slang-shaders are included. Please be mindful that librashader itself, and ares' implementaton of it are both rather new; some shaders may have compatibility issues, but the vast majority should function as expected.

Bandai - WonderSwan / WonderSwan Color
- Improve emulation of the WonderSwan APU: Improves Hyper-Voice accuracy as well as channel timing.

NEC - PC Engine / Turbografx 16 / CD
- Add support for Games Express CD-ROM games, these use their own unlicensed System Card/BIOS.
- Fix CD-ROM pregap offset (Fixes Super Air Zonk).
- Fix PC-Engine Duo/Super CD-ROM internal RAM.

Nintendo - Super Famicom / SNES
- wdc65816: Implement the (direct,X) wraparound bug in emulation mode. While this will not have any impact for commercial games (they don't tend to run in emulation mode) it is still an accuracy improvement that allows cputest-full to pass.
- Implement SA-1 BW-RAM protection: as above, this does not have any impact for most commercial games, but it fixes the SA-1 RAM protection test.

Nintendo - Game Boy Advance
- Improvements to PPU timings.
- Improve 32-bit prefetch buffer timing during instruction fetch.

Sega - Sega Mega Drive / Genesis / 32X / CD
- CD: Fix an off-by-one issue while decoding subchannels, fixes corruption in CD-G playback.
- 32X: Fix that unused bits of the a1518a register should be set to 0; fixes some broken homebrew.
- 32X: Add approximate timing for 32X memory regions; fixes Brutal: Above The Claw, all known commercial 32X games are now playable, although some minor issues may remain.
- 32X: Fix an issue with dotscroll causing corruption on some scrolling graphics.

Other
- Fixed an issue where the latest macOS SDK caused the statusbar to overlay the entire screen, appearing as if ares was broken.
- Fixed clipping issues in the splash screen on macOS.
- Improve UI behavior when changing drivers with a game loaded.
- Enabled the SDL audio driver on macOS

 ColecoDS v9.5 
Samedi 30/03/24 à 15:03 par Firebrand
Cet émulateur ColecoVision et machines à l'architecture proche pour Nintendo DS a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
- ADAMnet improvement for disk/tape handling. Improved timing, improved caching and more disk/tape games should load and run correctly.
- DSI gets a massive 2MB of Expansion RAM (32 banks of 64K). DS-Lite/Phat still has 128K (base 64K plus the standard 64K expansion RAM).
- Adam now properly handles 320K disks and three drive bays are virtually attached (two 320K disk drives and the internal Tape drive at 256K).
- Adam full keyboard now uses an LED indicator under the CAPS LOCK button to indicate status.
- Adam has improved keyboard graphic with more keys added.
- Adam no longer mirrors RAM as a Colecovision would.
- Adam optimization provided 5% improved emulation speed which should make most everything playable even on the older DS-Lite/Phat.
- Adam supports the 32K expanded ROM and running carts under Adam emulation - name your ROMs as .adm so it loads into the right place in memory.
- Tatung Einstein now has two proper standard 200K disk drives.
- Tatung Einstein full keyboard now uses LED indicators under the SHIFT/CTRL/GRAPH and ALPHA LOCK keys for a visual improvement.
- Tatung Einstein properly handles the backspace key when using the Alpha-Numeric keyboard overlay.
- 2000 individual game configurations are supported - save/load states optimized and numerous tweaks under the hood.

 ares v136 
Samedi 24/02/24 à 17:23 par Firebrand
Cet émulateur multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Border/Overscan overhaul
- When ares was initially designed, it was geared primarily towards SNES emulation, and as such the "Overscan" option in video settings behaved like the overscan feature of the SNES: showing or hiding the lower 16 lines of display. This behavior is not how most end users expect overscan to function.
- For ares v136, we have overhauled how borders and overscan is handled across all cores in ares.
- The overscan option has been reworked to show or hide all non-desirable edges of the screen (in most cases this is blank borders, but it can include areas that commonly just contain garbage pixels).
- Additionally, we have updated most of the emulator cores in ares to have hardware accurate border and aspect ratio when overscan is visible: this also includes PAL, so PAL games are finally rendered at the correct aspect ratio to real hardware when 'aspect ratio correction' is enabled.
- NOTE: The border regions for All TMS9918 VDP based consoles are thought to be be correct, as are Master System, Mega Drive, and NES, while SNES and PC-Engine are (educated) estimates. Hiding the overscan area is not yet implemented for Atari 2600, PC-Engine, Nintendo 64 or PlayStation as more hardware verification is required.

Cheat Support
- A popular request: ares finally has support for cheat codes, as well as a cheat editor. You can access the cheat editor by going to Tools -> Cheats while a game is loaded.
- Cheats are currently implemented for all cores, except for Nintendo 64 and PlayStation: support for these requires larger changes to ares that did not make the cut for this release.
- The cheat code format is a simple patch code format XXXXXXXX:YY where X is an address, and Y is the data to write; most emulators support this format so it shouldn't be difficult to port cheats between them.
- It is possible to chain multiple codes into a single cheat entry by separating the codes with a + symbol; this is useful if a single cheat requires multiple code to work.
- Cheats are saved in a cheat database file alongside the rom: for example, Game.sfc will create a cheat file titled Game.cheats.bml.

Nintendo - Game Boy Advance
- Implement prefetch buffer reset on ROM accesses from the CPU.
- Implement that timer 0 count-up bit cannot be set.

Nintendo - Super Famicom / SNES
- Fix an issue where the Super Gameboy 2 was running at the incorrect clock frequency.

Nintendo - Nintendo 64
- Implement newly discovered PI DMA behavior when crossing RDRAM row boundaries.
- Fix a corner face in FPU exception handling

Sega - Mega Drive/Genesis, Mega CD, 32x
- Add the Mega CD's PC RAM to the debugger memory viewer.
- Implement subchannel processing for Mega CD (Allows the playback of CD+G/karaoke discs provided a valid .sub file is provided)

Sony - PlayStation
- Improvements to the handling of the GPUSTAT register.

Other
- Switched back to wglSwapInterval for VSync on OpenGL for Windows; the DwmFlush approach caused worse tearing for most users.
- Fixed an issue where the SDL input driver considered all controllers to be the same device.
- Fixed an issue where rumble events could be missed causing rumble issues in many games.
- Improved VSync stability with the DirectX video driver.
