CVS commit: pkgsrc/emulators/mednafen

Module Name:    pkgsrc
Committed By:   wiz
Date:           Wed Feb 25 13:16:47 UTC 2009

Modified Files:
        pkgsrc/emulators/mednafen: Makefile distinfo

Log Message:
Update to 0.8.B, and set PKGVERSION to 0.8.11 to avoid confusion.


Fixed the rectangle calculation for screen rotation with Lynx and
WonderSwan to use X scale and Y scale values appropriately (they
were reversed before; also, assuming square pixels on your monitor
;)).  Rotation still poses a problem in fullscreen with the default
settings, however.

Fixed an off-by-one error in the software SDL graphics rotation
code (used for Lynx and WonderSwan).

Fixed a race condition that could cause rapid oscillation between
fullscreen and windowed when trying to toggle it.
...and fixed a race condition that could cause oscillations when
rotating the screen with Lynx and WonderSwan emulation.

SexyAL:  The return values of ALSA functions are now treated as
errors only if they're less than 0, rather than non-zero as before.
Thanks to R.L. for pointing this out.

The default "nethost" setting is now "" instead of
"".  The latter was allowed to expire and lost to domain
squatters some time ago.  Domain squatters cause desires to commit
grievous face-stabbing.  However, the netplay server on ""
is not guaranteed to be up. :p

PCE:  Added the ability to load a custom colormap(palette) by
setting "pce.colormap" to the path of the colormap file.  The
colormap consists of either 512 or 1024 RGB triplets, 8-bits per
color component, in the order R,G,B,R,G,B,R,G,B,... .  It is
recommended that the colormap provide all 1024 entries(the first
512 entries are for normal mode, the second 512 entries are for
grayscale/strip-colorburst mode). If it doesn't, Mednafen will
calculate the grayscale colors using a formula similar to that used
with the real VCE, but with more precision.  The colormap may be
disabled by setting the "pce.colormap" setting to an empty string,
or 0.  Command-line examples:

mednafen -pce.colormap /path/to/blueblue.cmap /yarr/pirate/booty.pce [Enable]

mednafen -pce.colormap 0 /some/where/over/the/rainbow/islands.cue [Disable]

PCE:  Added a hack to fix games that try to write to VRAM while
VRAM DMA is in progress (fixes graphical glitches in "Crest of Wolf",
maybe others too?).  This could potentially cause regressions, so
please post any on the forum.

PCE: Having "pce.forcesgx" set to 1 with non-SuperGrafx games will
no longer cause problems with display timing(and positioning).
However, this doesn't fix the underlying issue, and any demos that
set the horizontal and vertical timing registers differently on
each VDC won't operate as they would on a real SuperGrafx.  (This
could affect commercial SuperGrafx games, but AFAIK they keep the
VDC timings the same).  NOTE: Setting "pce.forcesgx" to 1 is still
not recommended, the preferred way of forcing a game/demo to enable
SuperGrafx emulation is by giving it a file extension of "sgx".

PCE: Arcade Card RAM is now initialized to 0 on allocation(it was
erroneously being left uninitialized before).

PCE: Added Arcade Card RAM to the memory editor in the debugger.

PCE: Fixed the BRAM initialization (it was wrong, and generated from
when Mednafen erroneously emulated 8KiB of BRAM).  Fixes lockups
in "Sorcerian".  Note that if you have any existing save states or
battery-backed RAM files for "Sorcerian" in "sav" or "mcs" under
Mednafen's base directory from when you attempted to run "Sorcerian",
you will need to delete them for this fix to have any effect.

PCE: Reduced the mirroring address space range of the Arcade Card
register mapping in HuC6280 banks 0x40-0x43.  It was mirrored
throughout 0x40-0x4F, now it's only mirrored at 0x40-0x47.  It may
not be mirrored at all with a real Arcade Card, tests need to be
Fixes a crashing bug in "Linda Cubed" early into gameplay.

WonderSwan: Fixed a bug that made it impossible to push a direction
on one D-pad while the opposing direction was being pressed on the
other D-pad.
