Showing off a little

0.147u3 is coming up tomorrow if nothing goes wrong and so here’s a video to show the progress made by myself, hap, and awesome new contributor PKGINGO on Konami’s ParaParaParadise.

More dancing

I’ve fixed the hardware test failures for the Firebeat hardware and that means we can now run all the dumped ParaParaParadise games without hacks. Here’s a few title screens.

Paro Paro Dancing

PKGINGO submitted a dump for Konami’s ParaParaParadise 1st Mix Plus, and better yet included some hints on how to get the game to start up and play. Hopefully his hints can point us in the right direction of getting the driver to be playable. In the meantime, here’s a few screens.

Fair warning: 7zip support in 0.147 is trashing memory

On Mac OS X it’s nice enough to crash right away; on Windows/Linux/BSD it’s affecting god knows what inside of MAME/MESS/UME. You should stick with plain .zip if possible until this has been resolved.
(Also to be clear: I wrote “0.147″ above, but this includes all versions since .7z was added).

Video Killed the Radio Star

In addition to a lot of “behind the scenes” work on the PowerPC core which will hopefully give me some things to show later (Pippin, perhaps?), 0.147 contains some fixes for some long-time ES5503 bugs that have gnawed at me a bit. Resolving them has made Apple IIgs software sound even better, and rather than just post MP3s here’s some videos.

It’s like that pottery scene in Ghost. Except with guns.

The DU dumped the second-to-last known released Atomiswave game, Sega Clay Challenge. We don’t emulate the light gun right now for AW so I couldn’t get in game, but here’s a few shots.
