System16 goes Open Source! - May 31,1999 by JoseQ
EmuViews Exclusive! As mentioned previously in last week's Rumor Mill,Thierry Lescot, previous Lord and owner of System16,has made the source and latest unfinished binary availableto the public in an EV Exclusive release! You may downloadthe 592KB archive from the EmulatorsPage. Some of the documentation hasn't been updatedsince the latest public release a few months back, andsince then some things have been improved, while othersare broken. Here's the improvements for this un-labeledrelease of S16:

  • 7759 emulation for System 16B games. (used for voices and drums)
  • Body Slam GCS (worked but now broken, sorry)
  • Very preliminary GCS for After Burner.[!!!]

    Of course, as in any other beta release, there are somebroken stuff, as follows:

  • All Pre-System 16 games are broken (Quartet 1 & 2 and Body Slam)
  • The road in Super Hang-On is not rendered properly

    And a couple of stuff that's left on the "To-Do" status:

  • Fixes Pre-System 16 & Super Hang-On bugs
  • Add sound emulation in Hang-On (maybe similar to Space Harrier)
  • Add 7751 emulation for voices in System 16A and Pre-System 16 games
  • Add sprite mask emulation (attrack mode in Aurail)
  • Finish the After Burner hardware emulation.
  • Add emulation of Galaxy Force hardware (3x68000+Z80)
  • Crack the Hitachi protection (good luck!:)
  • Many stuffs (speed-up, bug fixes, ...)

    I certainly hope that some of the many talented programmersout there, take on the task of keeping this great emulatoralive. Seeing After Burner run would certainly be oneof the greatest emulation experiences that I am lookingforward to having. If there is someone with good experienceand track record, I'm sure Thierry would consider passingon the baton, so that it would be officially maintained onthe official site. I will make the After Burner setavailable once I get back home. Enjoy!
