Créé par Byuu, le développement de cet émulateur a débuté le 14/10/2004. Sa priorité est de servir d’outil de débugging et de posséder un code propre afin d’obtenir une émulation des plus précise. Sa compatibilité est excellente (3 jeux ne fonctionnent pas, le reste est « censé » fonctionner) et requiert une configuration assez musclée en comparaison avec ses concurrents (l’auteur recommande un AMD Phenom II ou un Core 2 Duo).

This release adds some nifty new user interface features, and improves both performance and accuracy. The performance core is now fast enough to maintain a constant 60fps on a first-gen Intel Atom N270 in 98% of games.
Changelog:

– added new effect toggle tool window, which allows toggling of BG/OAM graphics layers and DSP audio channels
– added an option to use the native OS file and folder open dialogs instead of my custom browser
– added a new state selection window
– added frame skipping support, which is only used during fast forwarding; as a result, fast forward is now ~80% faster
– removed unnecessary icons, added workaround for checkbox/radiobox menu icons on Linux/GNOME
– added RTS/CTS support to serial simulation
– all cores: OAM high table even address writes should update OAM latch data register [blargg]
– accuracy core: major improvements to mosaic emulation
– accuracy core: added additional hardware-based caching, resulting in a ~15% speed boost
– accuracy core: emulated CGRAM address invalidation for writes during active display
– performance core: added new S-PPU renderer, resulting in a ~10% speed bost

Also, I’m looking for someone who would be willing to backport bsnes v069 from C++0x to C++98. With this, it should be possible to create a PS3 port of bsnes that runs at full speed with all games. bsnes does not use C++0x very much, so it shouldn’t be very hard, a weekend project at best. I just don’t have the time to do this myself. Note that I wouldn’t be merging these changes, I intend to keep using C++0x, this is needed only because the PS3 SDK uses a really old version of GCC. Please post on the message board if you are interested in helping.
