RockNES 0.98 released! - October 25,1999 by JoseQ
Woohoo! A second emulator release in the same day, it had been a while since that happened.As mentioned in last night's update, a new version ofRockNES has been released. You can download this new version from the Emulator Download Page. This new release does include quite abit of features since the previous release, 22 days ago.I've inserted them here for you to read right from the rocknes.txt document included in the archive:

  • Added a ID header to saved states (to prevent crashing when not compatible);
  • Mapper #19 improved (still buggy);
  • Mapper #23 fixed (Kid Dracula works ok);
  • Mapper #24 fixed (CV3j works ok);
  • Mapper #25 fixed (Gradius ][ works ok);
  • Mapper #26 fixed (Madara works ok);
  • NES NameTable mirroring fixed (CastleVania 3j mirroring is perfect);
  • Fixed ROM information display (mirroring);
  • Fixed an old sprite priority problem;
  • Fixed screen clearing (normal and intensity);
  • Fixed `-b' option (battery file, working again);
  • Fixed a mapper #0 loading bug;
  • Removed a sound hacking added in 0.97 (some notes were too short);
  • Loopy's palette updated (-pal 2);
  • Minor optmizations (less math) and cosmetic changes;
  • Compiled with Allegro 3.9.26 (WIP), hence support for Grip/Grip4 inputs;
  • Binary compressed with UPX 0.84;
  • Documentation (+FAQ) slightly updated.

    Enjoy and comment here!

    is it just me or is rocknes ass-slow? it works fine without sound(a little too fast),but thats not a route that should be forced upon someone. that and that fact that you have to calibrate the joystick each to you execute it make for a very un-user friendly emulator. just my opinion.

    Yes, RockNES is slow. Itīs fully written in C.

    >>it works fine without sound

    Yes, īcause there are no waves to be rendered.

    >>... that you have to calibrate the joystick

    Okay, this will be optional in the next release.

    >>.. change the name to Turtlenes.

    No. Possibly, you just know how to turn on your PC! If you are using a non-vesa mode, the emulation will be *VERY* slow, so you should try the option -oldblit. Else, I suggest you to try Scitech Display Doctor for VESA support (if your videoboard doesnīt have native VESA 3.xx or better).

    >>The guys that not possess a Pentium III 500 >>never must try this one!

    Are you an Intel worker? :*

    >No, what a pity! But IMO, AMD sucks. By the way... thanx for the Turtlenes hints, maybe the slow one works a little faster. Otherwise, NESTICLE is muuuuuuch faster an easy to use than Rocky... maybe someday things change. ;-)

    Itīs RockNES duddy.

    >> maybe the slow one works a little faster.

    Yes.

    >>NESTICLE is muuuuuuch faster

    Yes, but not much compatible at this time.

    >>an easy to use than Rocky...

    What do u think "hard"? What do u want to setup during the emulation? I really canīt see the "hard" thing...

    >>maybe someday things change. ;-)

    Possibly :-)
