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.
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
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!
