Let's say...being held up by a "bug" is a dead giveaway  :rolleyes:

Oh, now i understand, and you are just obsessed tbh. We don't plan on adding cv1k to FBNeo, as said several times the only trigger that could change this is an external contributor who would contribute a sh3 cpu core, but i don't see anything of the sort on github.

you'll be really surprized then, because it's not what you think.

barbudreadmon, actually I hope to get that in by the end of the year, it will probably be just me and iq_132.

@barbu

Hey man (omule),

Don't take it personal, we're just having fun and smiling here, with our alter egos  :wink:

@dink

Whatever it is, it will be great as always  :biggrin:

(regarding the cv driver, wow, great unexpected news, and as an enthusiast who played the games extensively, i have to underline the fact that a blitter delay implementation similar {or even better, per blending mode} to the one in mame is mandatory for the games to run well. I can actually help with achieveing better calculus for it, as i already tested the existing mame algorithm quite a lot).

Well, it turns out things got delayed a few days due to more bugs popping up out of thin air (I have the ability to make that happen, it seems)
Or maybe I really meant next monday?  Well either way - stay tuned :)

I just registered to say thank you for this awesome work on FBNeo.
I know FinalBurn from the start, i was pretty impressed of its perfomance with ATARIs Afterburner as a single emulator, when Dave released it about 20 years ago.
What you are doing is really awesome, it seems you even shifted gears up after the the desaster (if i may call it so) with FBA and the Capcom-Console.
Thumbs up, much appreciated!

kind regards from germany,
SirHenry aka Alex

After a nice debugging session I came up with a fix for Stadium Cross's missing engine sound.
Looking for some nice people to test for bugs in any multi32 game that might have happened as a side-effect of this fix, the games are: scross, orunners, harddunk, titlef

Thanks and best regards,

Slightly Complex Cheats

Rarely, some games use a linked list for the player & enemies, and the place the player's status etc. is held in memory always changes, but there is a location that points to this list that never changes.  In the past FBN ignored these cheats, but as of today, we support them (in cheat.dat format!) :)

For example:
rdft* - Raiden Fighters 1/2 "Invincibility"
androdun - Andro Dunos "Invincibility"
dreamwld - Dream World "Invincibility"
There's a couple more, but there aren't many :)

Even if you're not a fan of using cheats, they have their uses - for example: they help us debug the emulation, take screenshots and other such technical things.

My cheat.dat (attached file) is based on Pugsy's cheat.dat for MAME 0.126, found here: http://cheat.retrogames.com/mame_downloads.htm
With a couple updated entries.

On a sidenote :
- cheats are now available on the sdl/sdl2 builds
- cheat.dat format is now available on non-windows builds
