Fba V0.2.97.24 For Caanoo
Posted 04 May 2012 - 05:14 PM
I've also uploaded to google drive here
Gone from SDL to frame buffer access, not sure if it will be any faster but worth a try I thought. Hopefully this won't break TV out.
Input is also changed from SDL, hopefully this won't affect USB joysticks.
IREM drivers are now working (at least R-Type is), not very fast unfortunately.
Fixed loading of Megadrive/Pc Engine roms
Shoulder buttons skip to the next letter in CAPEX
Holding down B in CAPEX allow for faster scrolling

Scaling performance has improved a lot. The new scrolling options are great too.
I still have random freezes after loading a ROM.
Bigger ROMs like MS3/4/5/X still abend with malloc errors. Do you think there is something you can do about this ?
Scaling is now pretty fast and also pretty much required by CPS1 games for example. Filtering seems to be still basic, I hope this can be improved as well.
Keep up your good work. FBA is the best emulator on the Pandora IMHO.

I tried the same games as before http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?/topic/63086-fba-v0-2-97-24-for-caanoo/page__view__findpost__p__965967 and are at the same FPS the difference is that before they ran with scale none and now run with scale set to full the games with problems like snow bros 2, aliens, and bigger roms like street fighter III still have the same problems

Forgotten Worlds: 60 FPS
Ghouls n' Ghosts: 60 FPS
- 1944 - the loop master: 60 FPS
- Capcom Sports Club: 60 FPS
- Mighty! Pang: 60 FPS
- Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter: 60 FPS (short drops to 53-55 FPS)
- Marvel vs Capcom - Clash of Super Heroes: 60 FPS (short drops to < 50 FPS)
- X-Men vs Street Fighter: 60 FPS
- Street Fighter Alpha 1: 60 FPS
- Street Fighter Alpha 2: 60 FPS (short drops to 55-57 FPS)
- Street Fighter Alpha 3: 60 FPS (short drops to 55-57 FPS)
- Hyper Street Fighter 2: The Anniversary Edition (only Japanese version works): 60 FPS
- Progear: drops to 40 FPS
Hmmm, that's the thing I does not understand: FBA sometimes works flawlessly and sometimes, there a lot of graphical issues (sprites with glitches, wrong colours or sometimes there is even no image! All with the same configs! Sometimes with scaling, sometimes without. It's infuriating! Then, I have the right config, play a while and if I restart the game, the glitches are back.
What can I do? I use the v1.2.

Why is only the brazilian version working?

There's quite a few games that are playable in FBA that are not added in MAME since it's based off of a really old build (around v0.36 or something). Also certain games like the Taoplan shooters are much smoother and require less overclocking. However FBA doesn't emulate certain games that are in MAME like the Konami X-Men or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
