      12-jan-05 : First public release


      This is the result of a few days of work, after discussing
      with 7not6 on which emulators could be quickly ported and
      seeing that "Mr Driller" was available on this one ... !
      Remember those days on the dc ... :)

      Unfortunatly, due to a severe lack of motivation, I don't
      think I will continue to develop this emu, and rather
      prefer to go on with other more interesting and funny
      projects, so this could the first and last release !
      I wasn't intending to release it but I've been convinced
      by <G> to release it in a more or less usable stage, in
      case someone would like to continue it. Else it could
      still can be usefull to somemone.. could..

      The emulator is quite already in an advanced stage, and
      source code should be quite easy to understand.

      Oh, yes, before you complain, the emulator still miss sound..
      I know it sucks, but it has experimental HDD support and
      a nice GUI ... ... aaah you're smiling ;)

      The HDD code has been added to the 7not6 browser, so that
      others emu using it (so almost all) can be updated quicly !

      see readme for usage, and current/missing features.


      Enjoy !

    • * Good compatibilty
      * PAL/NTSC auto-detection
      * HOST/MC/HDD/CDROM rom loading
      * HDD Support (still in beta-testing)
      * nice GUI (Ingame menu & Rom browser)
      * Fullscreen or "Windowed" emulation in a real WSC lens !

    • Current Issues:

      * Gfx glitches (code portability issue?)
      * no sound (code is there, but as games get crazy once enable,
      it's deactivated in this release)
      * Probably a lot of other stuff...

      To-do list:

      * Add proper sound support (seal library banz0r... )
      * rewrite gfx fct (once gsKit 0.2 available and get rid of old gfxpipe)
      * Fix Gfx Glitches
      * Rotate display for games requiring it
      * Ram save / Save state
      * Save config
      * Zip support (those roms are too big!)
      * Fix bugs
      * ...

    • * CDROM/MC :
      - Put your roms in a directory at the root of you CD / MC
      - Burn it (if on CD)
      - Launch the emu, it's done !

      * HDD
      - Create a valid partition with a filesystem where to put your roms
      - Copy them into it (be sure to put them in the root directly)
      - Launch the emu, select [HDD] in the browser
      - Enjoy !

      * HOST :
      The emulator can load rom from host, in order to use this, place a file
      named "romlist.ini" where is located the elf with the following content :
      directory\filename1.wsc;
      directory\filename2.wsc;
      directory\filename3.wsc;
      ...
      and then place all roms according to what you define in the file.
      for example :
      rom\Final Fantasy (J).wsc;
      rom\Mr Driller (J).wsc;
      rom\Golden Axe (J).wsc;
      etc...

      in the above examples the roms will need to be located under a "rom" directory, respecting to where the elf is located.
      so :
      \rom\Final Fantasy (J).wsc;
      \rom\Mr Driller (J).wsc;
      \rom\Golden Axe (J).wsc;
      \romlist.ini
      \oswanps2.elf

      note :
      - When using romlist.ini loading you won't have access to your mc/cd/hdd
      - HDD is only available if you have a HDD installed and formatted.
      - the Browser only support one level directory
      - With HDD, the roms need to located in the root of your partition.
      Partition must be valid and created with a filesystem
      - There is some problem with refreshing CD content when changing CD
      in the browser (just choose the old one / back and it should force refresh)
      - The browser won't enter a directory/partition if it doesn't find any rom
      inside (should add a warning msg).

      The rom browser will allow you to switch from mc/cdrom/hdd to mc/cdrom/hdd ..
