Ooh, intriguing. I wonder if it's too much to hope that this could mean some better playability on the Pandora?
I can't get Nights into dreams to work without bios emulator,i'm using but it still the same as bios emulator.I can confirm that NiGHTS gets in-game with this version (at slideshow-speed, of course) without a BIOS dump. Excellent work!
Yabause mantainer is Ari64 but he seems no longer visit Openpandora boards, imho there are few chances of a Yabause PND update at the moment.
Ari64 did the SH2 to ARM dynarec for this version, making it far more than a simple port. I know you didn't mean anything bad by your comment, but I figured you should know you're giving him way too little credit. Without anything to compare it with, you can't use something's performance to try to determine how well it has been optimized. Some things are just never going to be fast enough..I suppose the old PND was a simple port (judging by the low FPS, I don't suppose any optimisation was made specifically for the Pandora), so anyone can make a new port from the latest SVN now...
