A Couple of News Items - October 17, '98 by SpectorX
A couple of news bits have happened since yesterday but had found no place to put them. Initially the very great Raine, which is by far the emulator that plays more games that are not supported by MAME, has added support for Darius Extra. This emulator is one to watch for as it has been growing inmensely in the past few months. Kudos go to Richard Bush and Mario Silva, his helper, as they make an incredible team and an incredible emulator as well.
NAZ of NAZ @ Retrogames, known for his ROM dumpings, has released a new ROMset called Cyberball. Apparently this game is from the same generation as other Atari games already emulated but contains twin Motorola chips which may make it slower to emulate. It is suspected that this may be for dual play in dual monitors.
A site you may want to visit if you're a StormWatch fan. StormWatch is a comic published by Image, and there's a new site dedicated to it. You can to Storm-Net to read Reviews of those comics among other thing. The owner is a friend of mine, and also regular at #mame. His nick there is SoulCtche.
NeoCharity, has released another Neo Geo game. This time, the name of the game is Kizuna Encounter Super Tag Battle. Its a new fighter that betters on Savage Reign and adds features like Tag Team battles. There are many mirrors to download this 15MB file from NeoCharity, go there.
A New RetroRadio has been transmitted since early yesterday. Shane Monroe discusses the various aspects of the legality of Emulation and the current popularity of Retrogaming. This should be a pretty good listening time for everyone, and a must download for fans of the show. Keep it Retro!
NSFE/True Reality project has been making numerous updates to the page detailing its progress. A new debugger has been added to the emulator and the disassembler is nearing completion. This is one of the most advanced N64 projects as of yet, and one to keep a close eye on.
Snes9X has also made a couple of releases. The Amiga port of its latest incarnation has been released as well as the Solaris version which I had the chance to play. Super Mario Kart is now playable as you can ride through the track if you don't mind the sprites (other competitors as well as the pipes) move not according to the map. It is still real good progress and should probably be fixed soon. Kudos to Jeremy Koot for his amazing SNES emulator.
That's it for now... Thanks for reading!
