Rilasciato il nuovo fimware v0.1.7 (Beta 3) per la Cartridge SD2Snes

Ikari ha rilasciato il nuovo firmware per la SD2Snes la Flash Cartridge per Super Nintendo/Famicom. Le istruzioni per l’aggiornamento le potete trovare qui.

Full Changelog:

A minor update, mainly in the name of stability. This hopefully eliminates glitches unrelated to the in-game buttons on some consoles, e.g. Seiken Densetsu 3 rebooting intermittently or graphical glitches in DKC 2+3, that had been introduced with v0.1.7 preview 1.

  • Reintroduce more aggressive filtering for control and address lines from the SNES, previously removed after v0.1.6
  • Unify and centralize signal edge detection for all sub-units (e.g. S-RTC, MSU1, BSX, DSP etc.) instead of each unit having its own (slightly different) edge detection.
  • In-game controller scan has become slightly more time effective under certain circumstances (Auto Joypad Read enabled but no NMIs).
  • In-game hooks are now disabled for 10 seconds after loading or resetting a game to help certain games get past their boot screens. This will be configurable in the final.
  • Reconfigure the FPGA only when necessary on warm reset, speeding up “reset to sd2snes menu” by a couple hundred milliseconds.
  • Fix an MMIO access priority bug for DSPx.
  • Fix BS-X ROM detection for games with 2 startups left.
  • Fix directory browsing being broken after setting the clock.

Rilasciato il nuovo fimware v0.1.7 (Beta 2) per la Cartridge SD2Snes

26 September 2014 Nessun commento

Ikari ha rilasciato il nuovo firmware per la SD2Snes la Flash Cartridge per Super Nintendo/Famicom. Le istruzioni per l’aggiornamento le potete trovare qui.

Full Changelog:

It addresses some issues reported with v0.1.7 preview (and some others).

  • Satellaview works again. BSX alters the original interrupt vectors at run time. The original interrupt vectors are now saved per hook call, not only once when loading the ROM.
  • In game buttons now work with MSU1, too.
  • Automatic hook method choosing: NMI is default but switched to IRQ when no NMIs are triggered. If both occur, NMI has priority. This should enable the in-game buttons for games that previously did nothing.
  • The hook routine saves some CPU time when auto joypad read is enabled by the game – it will just reuse the result instead of doing its own controller scanning. Also the controller is now only scanned every 8 frames. This helps alleviate some glitches, e.g. Secret of Mana now starts up correctly. There are still some glitches left which can’t be eliminated fully.
  • Auto region patching works again without having to delete the sd2snes.cfg.
  • BSX now emulates Type 1 memory packs instead of Type 2. Apparently the BSX BIOS is buggy with Type 2 packs when they contain HiROM games that are supposed to be run from PSRAM. So, at least Bomberman works now, and probably others too.
  • Fixed BSX PSRAM shadowing for HiROM.
  • Files and directories with “hidden” or “system” attributes are now actually hidden from the file browser.

Rilasciato il nuovo fimware v0.1.7 (Beta) per la Cartridge SD2Snes

19 September 2014 Nessun commento

Ikari ha rilasciato il nuovo firmware per la SD2Snes la Flash Cartridge per Super Nintendo/Famicom. Le istruzioni per l’aggiornamento le potete trovare qui.

Full Changelog:

  • In-game button combinations are in effect. See the table below for the key mapping. Note that some games show glitches with the in-game functions in place. I added an additional feature to temporarily disable them in case of game glitches (e.g. Secret of Mana hangs at the Squaresoft logo, displaying only garbage). I’m not entirely happy with the button choice but it will do for now. ;)
  • LED blink codes for file system errors – e.g. in case the SRM file cannot be saved this will tell you that something’s gone wrong. The blink codes are yet to be listed.
  • Also the sd2snes will retry saving until it works so you have the chance to swap out the SD Card. In that case the directory structure must be present where the sd2snes expects to save the file.
  • “Screen saver” – in the menu, the screen is darkened after some idle time to reduce wear on CRT and plasma screens.
  • Memory sharing between SNES and the sd2snes CPU is greatly simplified (The FSM is reduced to only 5 states instead of 18) and timing is more relaxed. This should help with stability on a wider range of consoles.
  • On-the-fly file browsing. Also shows a little “loading…” window when loading directories/files.
  • Windows are now blue so they stick out better in front of yellow directory listings.
  • Cx4 data ROM is now embedded in the FPGA configuration – no more need for the external file cx4.bin.
  • Initial Satellaview clock is back to 18:00:00 from 18:05:30.
  • SD cards can be hotswapped. Currently there is no automatic refresh of the file list so tapping reset on the SNES or changing the directory is necessary to get the new contents.
  • The status line is moved upward a few pixels so hopefully it doesn’t get eaten by overscan.
  • Navigation: When scrolling page-wise with the right D-pad arrow, the end of the file list is now aligned to the bottom of the screen.
  • Navigation: The shoulder buttons can be used to jump to the beginning/end of a directory listing.
  • Bugfix: some compatibility issues with a number of games. (Super Play Action Football (S-RTC interference), GP1 Part II (WRAM initialization), Human Grand Prix (mapper detection bug))
  • Bugfix: properly initialize FPGA state machine (on some consoles the menu failed to start at all)
  • v0.1.7 final will contain menu items for various configuration settings and a cheat interface.

In-game button mappings:

  • L+R+Select+Start = Reset game
  • L+R+Select+X = Reset to sd2snes menu
  • L+R+Start+B = Disable cheats
  • L+R+Start+A = Enable cheats
  • L+R+Start+Y = Kill in-game routines (in case they interfere with game operation).
  • L+R+Start+X = Temporarily kill in-game routines (~10 seconds – if you need to get past a glitch but don’t want to lose in-game buttons)

1541 Ultimate II: Nuovo firmware v2.6d

13 February 2013 Nessun commento

E’ stato rilasciato un nuovo aggiornamento firmware per l’interfaccia 1541 Ultimate II di Gideon. Questa versione del firmware funziona solo con la versione della cartuccia 1541 Ultimate II (nuovo fpga).

Version 2.6d includes some new features and fixes:

  • FIXED: Ultimax mode forced now correctly implemented (solves issue with freeze and DMA load)
  • FIXED: Updater now works on C128… (not all C128 issues are fixed)
  • ADDED: Programmable cartrige emulation timing.
  • IMPROVED: Some drive emulation enhancements.

Release notes:

  • This version does *not* include SID, but it does include the Ultimate Audio module. Different builds may become available upon request.
  • The internal copier is still in beta. It has been tested with some of my drives, but there might be drives out there that won’t work. Make sure you have an IEC link from the Ultimate to a real drive to use this function. (No need to have a link to the computer.) There is still no retry mechanism; sectors that failed to read correctly will not be re-read.
  • The Kernal replacement function is critical when it comes to timing. Tested on two machines only. Might not work on all C128.

1541 Ultimate II: Nuovo firmware v2.6c

E’ stato rilasciato un nuovo aggiornamento firmware per l’interfaccia 1541 Ultimate II di Gideon. Questa versione del firmware funziona solo con la versione della cartuccia 1541 Ultimate II (nuovo fpga).

Version 2.6c includes some new features and fixes:

  • NEW: Disk Copier from real drives to .D64 images.
  • NEW: Command Interface.
  • NEW: Ultimate-II DOS V1.0 (command target)
  • NEW: Kernal replacement function.
  • FIXED: TAP file recorder failed miserably on high latency write devices. Rewritten; should work better now.

  • FIXED: USB stick present on boot time caused the Ultimate-II to crash when loading a file from SD at initialisation time (kernal rom / drive rom)
  • FIXED: Starting a program with RUN sometimes caused the ultimate to become unresponsive when freezing afterwards.
  • FIXED: Now reads USB sticks with FAT16 format, but without partition table.

Release notes:

  • This version does *not* include SID, but it does include the Ultimate Audio module. Different builds may become available upon request.
  • The internal copier is still in beta. It has been tested with some of my drives, but there might be drives out there that won’t work.
