Hy guys, i was just wondering if the driver has any chance of appearing in FBA in the near future  :biggrin:


As a curiosity, one of the Demul emu authors, MetalliC,  actually made a very smooth low spec Cave CV1000 emu (for android) back in 2014, but sadly he never released it to the public:

It would be nice to have these masterpieces in FBA working at decent speeds!

Not for me, no. It would literally require a port of everything. FBA doesn't support the CPU or the sound processor. The driver itself and video stuff would have to be ported too.

The only way this would happen is if someone besides me and iq_132 were to get things rolling.  First we'd need a sh-3 cpu core, second the sound processor (which has some sort of mpeg decoding).  By need, I mean fully ported (and tested) to FBA.

I understand guys. Thanks for answering.

Cave driver or not i'm always looking forward to a new FBA release, as it's the absolute best emulator for our beloved arcade games  :biggrin:
