A major update of Emulicious is available

This update comes with several additions and improvements. Most notably an additional system is now emulated, the MSX.

Four weeks ago I got interested in emulating the MSX and now I feel it is ready to be released. It supports most cartridge ROMs released for the MSX1. If a disk ROM and an alternative BIOS are provided it also supports program on floppy disks in the form of dsk images.

Emulicious’s debugger now also supports loading Sjasm lst files as source files. Sjasm is a Z80 assembler that is often used for MSX development but can also be used for other Z80 systems like the Mastersystem.

Furthermore, the profiler has been improved to better support the calling convention of C.

The full list of changes follows:
  • Added MSX emulation
  • Added support to load lst files containing Sjasm sourcecode in the debugger
  • Improved Profiler to better work with C calling convention
  • Remember last directory for loading sources/symbols
  • Fixed an issue with breakpoints on ROMs larger than 4 MB (thanks to Antígeno)
  • Improved Auto Palette option in Tile Viewer for SMS Mode 4
  • Added View menu to Tile Viewer to choose different layouts
  • Added Frame Advance to the main emulator (formerly only available in debugger)
  • Improved Tilemap Viewer and Tile Viewer support for TMS Modes
  • Added CTRL+SHIFT+BACKSPACE as hotkey for Reload ROM
  • Added an option to automatically reload a ROM when it changes
  • Fixed a bug that wouldn’t allow setting gamepad inputs if there
    are more than 2 gamepads connected (Thanks to Niloct)
  • Several minor bugfixes and improvements

An update of Emulicious has been released.

This update comes with the following improvements:

  • The PAUSE key on the keyboard can now also be used for pausing the emulator (do not confuse with suspend)
  • The disassembler now supports multiple labels at the same address
  • WLA-DX’s _sizeof_ labels do not show up in the disassembly anymore

  • Fixed a repain glitch in the disassembler table
  • Added a Sound Viewer
  • Fixed an issue in Memory Tracer for the Game Boy Color

A major update of Emulicious has been released

This update comes with several additions and improvements.

One of these addition is the emulation of the FM chip of the SEGA Mastersystem. When it is enabled in the menu Options->Emulation->Master System then games supporting this chip will play music on it.

People interested in developing, hacking or researching games will be happy to see the new tabs in the Memory Editor. For the Master System and Game Gear a tab for VDP register and a tab for PSG registers have been added. For the Game Boy and Game Boy Color a tab for OAM and a tab for HRAM have been added. All systems received a Palettes tab in the Memory Editor.
Additionally, the memory tracer (previously only available for Master System and Game Gear) now also supports the Game Boy and Game Boy Color.

Furthermore, the UI of the disassembler table of the debugger has been improved. Its first column now spans the whole width of the table.

Last but not least, the Go To dialogs and the Find dialogs have been improved. The Go To dialogs are now enhanced by auto-completion facilities and the Find dialogs received a history and several search options.

The full list of changes follows:
  • Added FM chip emulation for the SEGA Mastersystem
  • Added a Clear Log button to the Breakpoint Window
  • Added Palettes tab to the Memory Editor
  • Added VDP and PSG tabs for Mastersystem/Game Gear to the Memory Editor
  • Added OAM and HRAM tabs for Game Boy (Color) to the Memory Editor
  • Added Memory Tracer support for Game Boy (Color)
  • Added Watchpoints for the Memory Editor tabs
  • Improved the UI of the disassembler table
  • Improved Go To dialogs by adding auto-completion
  • Improved Find dialogs by adding a history and several search options
  • Fixed cropped images in screenshots taken from Game Boy games

An update of Emulicious is available

This update adds undo/redo functionality for debugger run actions. When you notice during stepping that something in your code went wrong you can just undo your last steps and try again.

Furthermore, a Discord Server for Emulicious was launched. A menu item to join this server was added to the Help menu. This server can be joined via the following link: https://discord.gg/YuKjBUF

Additionally, the file Expressions.txt was added which contains explanations and examples on how to use expressions in Emulicious.

A minor update of Emulicious is available

This update introduces the possibility to specify what message to log when a breakpoint is hit. These messages can consist of multiple expressions separated by commas.
An example is "Entered WaitForVBlank at scanline ", scanline
(The quotation marks need to be there to indicate a string)
This will yield log messages such as the following:
Entered WaitForVBlank at scanline 100

Unfortunately, there was an issue with the automatic update system and you might need to manually download the new version from the Downloads page.
