EV News - S16 DirectX News, Etc. - June 10, '98 by JoseQ
Phew, great news I've seen, and it's time I relay to you EV readers. But first a note to thank Zwaxy of MAME Action Replay Page for pointing out the extra MAME ROM I had running around. The game was Alien Storm, was incorrectly into the database as being also on MAME .33b4. No wonder I had more ROMs than there are available for MAME. Apparently the count is correct now.
Now for the S16 DX news. Bartman has announced on his site that everything seems to be working fine. Besides not updating yesterday, work has continued and now Fullscreen 8bit and 16bit modes are working. Even Eagle graphics are working on this port. Now the best news to all of us to which vsync looked better but slower. Vsync doesnt cause the same performance hit it caused in the DOS version. That's right, no performance hit at all. However the matter of the annoying snow, due to slow Windows palette changes. There is no snow in 8bit mode however.
Another great news is that the Public Release has now been dated to June the 20th and the private beta (which I'm a proud member of the select group) will start one day later, right this Saturday. Which is OK because Fridays I rarely get home early with time to play. Now there have been no news about the surprise feature bartman mentioned in our InterView, but heck I'm dying to know if its going to be in there because believe me, if it makes it, you'll be excited too!
In other news, the UNIX version of MESS has also been released and has been sitting on the Emulator page for a while now. However there have been no downloads for it. Apparently there arent that many UNIX users, although I'm one of them, I'm not fond of playing EMUs in this machine. I might get caught.
On a side note, there is much speculation about the existence of this CAPxtra emulator because of all the mysteroisness regarding Callus, the mentioning of 3Dfx which has nothing to do with any of the CPS2 games that most people know of, the smallness of the screenshots, the headers in there as well as the bars, etc. It really is something to think about, and we will keep a close eye on it. If anything comes out, you'll be sure to read about it here.

Thanks for reading!
