@retroFuture : it was fixed last month
Awesome! Is this change in the latest Lakka core?

It's in the latest codebase for fbneo (windows version) and libretro (everything version), I don't know about lakka, but if it is up to date, then yes.

@retroFuture : test, and let the lakka maintainers know that they should update FBNeo more regularly if it's still broken, we can't keep tabs on every side-projects using our emulator

Hi guys,
Added a WIP driver for Zero Hour / Red Clash.
Zero Hour is fully playable with sound.
Red Clash is fully playable, with no sound.

Samples for Zero Hour were created by Otto_Pylotte [he also did Cheeky Mouse!].

Here's the SamplePack *attachment*, toss it in support/samples

Note: games have imperfect colors, hence the WIP status.

best regards,

Hey dink. I think the voices in OutRunners sound pretty bad with the Low-pass filter on. Just insert a coin and press start to get your ears violated. Thanks for your time.

Stifu,
Thanks for letting me know, please give it a try now :)
Keep in mind: some of the game's samples were recorded a bit hot (distorted), and don't sound great even without a filter.  F.ex. the car "start-up" sound & announcer.

best regards,

FBNeo emulates Mrs. Dynamite now, too!
Big thanks to Marco Kerstens, Sam Grech, Frank Palazzolo for procurement of the pcb, dumping the roms and emulating it first in MAME.

It's kinda like the bomb level in Warp & Warp, some say it's like Bomberman.

https://www.pcgamesn.com/emulation/mame-232-mrs-dynamite

have fun :)  Should be available in all FBNeo builds right now.

best regards,

Auto-Fire updates

Auto-Fire has a new rate selection: "Faster".
For when you need to go faster than "Fast" and slightly slower than "Very Fast".  In some games, "Very Fast" is too fast for the game to even register button presses, and the "Fast" option is not fast enough.  Get it? :)  On a scale of 1-10: Think of "Slow" as a 1 and "Faster" as 10.  "Very Fast" goes to 11.

Button Staggering: If you set up more than 1 autofire button, the buttons won't hit at the same exact time.
This is especially useful for games like Konami's Track and Field / 88 Games

best regards,

Hello friends and fans of FBNeo,

Megadrive now has a resize window/screen option for games that use 32col mode (256x224) - this will correctly preserve aspect ratio and just look better than the previous method of resampling the screen into the 320px window.  It's in the DIP's and will be the default for games that haven't been previously ran.  Some games that use this mode are:
Megaman - The Wily Wars / Rockman Mega World
Flicky
XDR - X Dazedly Ray
Fushigi no Umi no Nadia
And a huge full list, here: http://www.firebrandx.com/OSSC/Genesis 256 Mode List.txt

A bunch of "behind the scenes" stability fixes to Sega System 16/18 games for hiscores and cheats.  Big thanks to barbudreadmon for the leads, help and testing!

*Brace for impact* Feature removal: 11khz and 22khz audio rates have been removed from the Windows and libretro versions of FBNeo, due to some pretty nasty bugs which would take equally nasty kludging to fix.

best regards,
- dink

  • All games deserve to be emulated, more or less! :P

Thanks a lot for improvements! :)

Moreover currently there's not a real reason to use 11/22 KHz instead of 44/48 KHz audio sample-rates... the impact on performance is irrilevant, also if you use a low-end hardware...  ;)

Coin setting problem in the game: Snow Board Championship (Version 2.1)

The game always starts in free play mode. When I go to configure it to accept coins (F2 Dip Switches), then when I save the configuration it accepts coins to start the game, the problem is that when I exit and put the game back on (or when I restart it), it goes back to free play mode ..... It's like it doesn't save the configuration or it only keeps it while the game is on.

In Dip Switches, when I configure the coins, I always put the "save & exit" option, but it doesn't save the configuration.

I don't know if this happens in mame as well.

Greetings.
