Just a quick THANK YOU to Ari64 from those of us on the Maemo based Nokia N900 device who are all benefiting from his hard work and are happily able to run this Saturn emulator on our phones!

After 2 years a new version of Yabause has emerged. It has a dinarec, a cocoa port, a new build system and lots of other cool stuff.


You can download it from here

Anyone tell me where the bios have to go, there is only one: .wh..wh.orph folder within the yabause folder..?


Thanks.


EDIT:


I also have the same issue as Klaus mentions, namely a white box in the upper left hand corner of the screen that can't be removed without rebooting.. any help (with both issues) would be appreciated

The two posted versions in this thread are deleted on the filehoster's website.


Is it possible to reupload the latest one ?

Here's r2660!


Just a slight warning... This is on my Dropbox, which means bandwidth is low, so if someone else could find a better place to host, that'd be great. :)

Sorry to bump this old thread, but I've just checked the sources of the new Yabause (0.9.11.1) : http://sourceforge.net/projects/yabause/files/yabause/0.9.11/yabause-0.9.11.1.tar.gz/download


And found that it has now a dynarec, and it's arm optimised ! I'm pretty sure this should give a major speed boost compared to the old version...


And with the upcoming new 1 GHZ + Pandoras, Saturn emulation might become possible, at least for the 2D games ;)


So, I hope someone will try to compile this new version, I would have done it myself if there was a virtual box image ready SDK (I'm on windows...), but it doesnt seems to exist -.-

Oops :p


Well I saw in the changelog in the sources this :


0.9.10 -> 0.9.11


- Added a dynamic recompiling SH2 core for x86 and ARM


The first post was posted the 23 July 2011, and the latest version of Yabause is from 12/2011, so I though it was newer... Strange -.-


Sorry about that T.T

Tnx for the hard work, i will give this a try, saturn got so many awesome rpg's.


Too bad that saturn is so hard to emulate compared to psx, but Yabause looks very promising.

Then I hope someone else will pick up the project, 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...

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..


This is unfortunately a common misunderstanding people make.. that leads them to look at quick ports and believe that some good optimization will make it fast enough. When it comes to emulators decent performance can depend on the design of the entire thing, not just applying some optimizations after the fact. Just the same, Ari64 did only target the CPU performance and not the GPU performance, so it's possible you could still make it a lot faster with some carefully thought out NEON optimized VDP1 and VDP2 renderers.. but good luck getting someone to do that..
