A major update of Emulicious got released!
It comes with lots of improvements:
- Finally, you can now play your favorite games using a USB game pad connected to your PC
- The setup input dialog has been restructured
- BIOS emulation for the SEGA Game Gear has been added
- An option to skip all breakpoints has been added
- Previously, screenshots taken from a Game Gear game had contained the offscreen area. This has been fixed.
- Fixed a bug with expressions that could lead to misbehavior of the emulated system
- The Memory Editor now shows the value of the selected byte in multiple formats
- The Reference Hierarchy has been improved
- The Outline has been improved
- Several improvements of the disassembler
- The emulation accuracy of the Light Phaser has been improved
An update of Emulicious is available!
It comes with serveral new features and some improvements to existing tools.
BIOS files for all supported systems can be selected now. For casual users this can help to improve the authenticity of the emulated system. But also developers can benefit from it because they can test if their rom will be rejected by the BIOS. Additionally, the state of the system after the BIOS will be faithfully reproduced. Appropriate BIOS files can be found on the web.
The Master Everdrive and the Everdrive GG can be emulated now. This feature as well can help to improve the authenticity of the emulated system. Developers can test if their rom is compatible with an Everdrive and also the state of the system after the Everdrive will be faithfully reproduced. To enable Everdrive emulation you need an Everdrive OS file. These can be found on the official website of the Everdrive. You can select a 1bpp font to use with the Everdrive but you can also let Emulicious derive a 1bpp font from the system font. Recent versions of the Everdrive OS come with their own font. They ignore the selected font.
The Memory Editor got expanded by a context menu and its interaction with the Debugger has been improved. Table files can now be manually selected in the Memory Editor and symbol files can now be manually selected in the Debugger. Furthermore, the Memory Editor now supports multi-selection and copy&paste. The Coverage Analyzer also got expanded by a context menu. It allows to exclude selected addresses from the analysis or to reset the collected data for selected addresses.
A major update of Emulicious has been released!
It comes with a lot of improvements and additions:
- The overall performance has been improved.
- The impact of the debugger on the performance has been reduced significantly.
- A bug has been fixed that could cause crashes on Linux based systems.
- A bug has been fixed that could cause Emulicious to run even slower when it couldn’t reach 100%
- Additions to Emulation
- Light Phaser Emulation
- Emulation of 3 and 6 button Mega Drive Controllers
- Additions to Tooling
- Hovering over a RAM addresses in the debugger shows its current value
- The Memory Editor now indicates labels by underlining the corresponding bytes
- When the Tracer is enabled the debugger now also visualizes the trace
- The trace in the debugger can now be followed CTRL+Left and CTRL+Right
- Port Watchpoints can now be added in the Breakpoint Window using the prefix ‚p‘ so entering „pdd“ would add a port breakpoint on port dd.
- A completely new tool has been added called „Coverage“. It records all accesses to any address. It uses different colors to encode relative numbers of accesses. It uses 3 base colors at different levels of brightness. Yellow means it is accessed significantly more often than green and red means it is accessed significantly more often than yellow. The brightness indicates the relation to other values with the same base color. A brighter color means that it has more accesses than the one with the darker color. The Coverage tool can be used to identify hotspots but also to identify dead code, unused data or unused RAM. In conjunction with breakpoints and stepping it can also be used to identify which code/data/ram is used from one point of the execution to another.
- An overview ruler has been added to the debugger which is a 1 dimensional representation of the whole file of the debugger. It also shows the colors of the tracer and the coverage tool. It can be clicked to directly scroll to the corresponding address.
- Patch files can now be loaded like ROM files
- Screenshots can now be taken by pressing F12
Emulicious’s tools have been updated!
A Memory Editor has been added and the Profiler and Tracer in the Debugger have been improved.
