RockNES 0.91! - June 20,1999 by JoseQ
Another Nintendo related release today, RockNES has been updated to version 0.91.You may download it from the EmulatorsDownload Page. This version has so much new stuff init that I'm going to copy/paste it from the 'rocknes.txt'file. But before I do, I must mention that a new compatibility list with 195 games has been posted aswell on the RockNES Home Page. Here's what's new:

  • More gfx optimisations;
  • Background render rewritten (little speed up);
  • Added a new PPU scroll/control method (should fix games scores);
  • Screen layout fixed/changed;
  • Some IRQ fix for mapper #24 (horizontal scrolling is ok);
  • Removed screen border color;
  • Fixed problem with the key [~] (coins);
  • Fixed problem with violet color instead of blue color;
  • Fixed some startup/shutdown problems;
  • Fixed a minor problem saving snapshots;
  • Fixed/added palettes for many VS system games;
  • Fixed mapper #7 (Wheel of Fortune Junior now works);
  • Fixed mapper #151 mirroring;
  • Fixed problem with soundcard detection (finally!);
  • Fixed squares waves duty cycles (using 25, 25, 50, 87.5 sounds better);
  • Fixed messages display (color) with VS games;
  • Fixed bitmap garbage on startup/reset;
  • Changed VBlank lines/frame to 30;
  • Added left-sprite clipping (same way used for left-background clipping);
  • Added CHR pages masking for Mapper #4 (MMC3);
  • Added VS R.B.I Baseball support (unplayable);
  • ESC key aborts the emulator startup;
  • Added 3 new palettes (use -pal x to select);
  • ROM loading stuff rewritten;
  • Detected problems with VBlank lines/frame (see "Know problems");
  • Famicom Disksystem support disabled.

    Kudos to Fx3 for another release!
