meisei 1.1/1.1.1

Topic: Emulation

Two new versions of meisei have been released in the last few days! New in the 1.1 version:

  • gfx: fixed DDraw renderer border refresh bug
  • input: corrected keyboard matrix quirk
  • changed power-on timing, to prevent "A Life M36 Planet" from locking up
  • added movie time code view option on play/record (hh:mm:ss;ff)
  • vdp: you can now disable/enable sprite and tile layers
  • vdp: added unlimited sprites option. This eliminates sprite flickering on most games, without affecting core accuracy: collision and overflow bits still work the same. Games that use overflow as a trick to hide sprite lines, like Athletic Land when falling into the water, will show glitches.
  • sound: added "triple buffering" to prevent overflows on longer frames
  • timing: speed up setting is now in percentage instead of integer multiply
  • timing: added slowdown feature, working similar to speed up (default: F10)
  • gfx: auto save palette didn't work
  • input: added "invert" function for axes
  • input: limited the speed of DInput reads, instead of always at every vblank. It sometimes returned wrong values in fast forward mode.
  • timing: added direct control over frame speed/reverse with an analogue axis, by default mouse Y axis while holding F10 + F12. It's called DJ scratching, since it kind of resembles that.
  • mappers: added AMD flash memory emulation, and Matra's INK mapper. One INK cartridge died in the process (no, not inkjet), curses were heard as far away as planet Gradius.
  • fixed crash when opening an SCC game by drag-dropping, while that same SCC game was already running

New features and fixes in the 1.1.1 version:

  • mappers: AMD flash erase sector/chip command didn't work properly
  • changed default video format to PAL, per default C-BIOS region code
  • gfx: full screen setting is now saved, so it's possible to start meisei in full screen

it's not yet at Samor's place, but it will get a proper funeral once it returns Tongue
I guess it was worth it, for emulation's sake Wink

Will there be support for SRAM? For games like Xanadu and Hydlide 2.

I love meisei because the size of the window can be resized freely.

I propose or that meisei start supporting MSX2 or blue/openmsx start supporting free window resize
