Software News   Software News : A/NES Pro v1.00
   posted by Alkaron on 8-May-2010 14:14:15 (2627 reads)
Today, thirteen years ago, A/NES was given birth. And today, it's time to announce the sequel of A/NES, entitled A/NES PROFESSIONAL.
This is the emulator that I've been working on the last couple of weeks and I think it's ready for a public release now. However, due to complexity of the NES, there's still a few bugs to fix.

A/NES PRO is for high-end Amigas. It's not something you want to try on your 68030. Minimum recommended setup is atleast a 50Mhz 68060 CPU (and overclocked is even better). The reason for these high requirements is that I wanted to create an accurate emulator. I am not there yet, but it's a start. :). A/NES PRO was inspired and designed with the NatAmi in mind.

Anyway, let's skip the tech-stuff, here's the news:
* Completely rewritten graphicsengine. Alot more accurate and nice looking, but also slower. :)
* Implemented "frameskip" option in preferences-section.
* ROMs can now be started from Shell, using "anes <romname.nes>".
* CPU-core bugfixes.
* Partial one-screen mirroring implemented (RC Pro Am)
* Mapper 87 implemented.

Parts of the new graphicsengine:
* Graphics are now handled as chunky- data instead of planar. More accurate at cost of performance.
* Sprite priorites implemented (sprites can appear behind background).
* CHR-bank swapping are now done entirely by using pointers instead of moving data. Many thousand percent faster than previous gfxengine.
* Screen-mirroring are now handled correctly and uses pointers instead of moving data (=alot faster). Games like Metroid and Zelda2 now works properly.
* Now uses C2P (Chunky2Planar) code by Mikael Kalms. Both 68060 and 68030 optimized versions included.

You may also have noticed that I've added a paypal-donate button my page. Feel free to use it if you'd like to encourage me to improve A/NES PRO even more in the future.

If it uses the standard audio.device it should work on OS4, surely?

what about taking code from CoolNess? Perhaps the cpu core is interesting as it's written in assembly and pretty optimized. Check it out here
