    PharaOnyx, over at GP32spain, reports that a new version of Xroar, that fantastic Dragon 32/64 emulator for the GP32 has been given a nice update to 0.17. You can get the updated version (for now - until someone adds it to the archive) from GP32spain here. At least, after you've created an account on their forums...

    From the changelog:

    Changed from v0.16 to v0.17
    * Map '~' to Shift+'@' in translation mode.
    * Hopefully fix windows32 build.
    * Tape loading bugs fixed.
    * Fix VDG accesses >32K.
    * More accurately emulate Dragon 32 behaviour in map type 1.
    * Added frameskip option (-fskip).
    * Added rate limiter inhibit by holding F12.
    [CUT]
    Changed from v0.15 to v0.16
    * Added -ram option.
    * CRC16 fixes.
    * RSDOS fixes.
    * Video timing code updated.
    * Added -pal and -ntsc options.
    * Fixed 16-byte video modes.
    * Fixed keyboard translation for Windows.
    * Support an illegal indexed addressing mode accidentally used by the first
    release of Glove.
    * Support using audio files for cassette input.
    * GP32 speed hacks (still not perfect).[/CUT]

    90MHz (dropped to 45MHz in menus), but it's not quite full speed, which is why I've not been announcing it myself.

    I intend to pull the GP32 code out from the main project so I can optimise stuff that wouldn't make sense for the general release!

    just wondering if there are any plans to port this to the 2x, I have sold my gp32 and really miss xroar.

    glad to see it been updated anyway, keep up the good work :)

    I'd love to see this on the 2x too - I had many happy hours revisiting Cuthbert in the Cooler on my GP32 :)

    Hate to be a stickler, but the heading for the news post about this was "[GP2X] Xroar 0.17 Released". In fact, I've noticed a number of GP32 news articles that were tagged as GP2X related over the last while....

    You can also download it here and don't need to sign up for anything.

    The TRS-80 Color Computer was my first ever computer. Ever. So this emulator really brings back the memories. Though I never had a disk drive unit with it.

    Time Bandit - What a brilliant game! I remember playing this so many times!!!
