I'm still alive

I just wanted to apologise for the lack of updates recently. In between commitments at work and at home I've not had much time to work on Daedalus over the past couple of weeks. Fortunately things are quietening down again so I should have some free time to work on the next release of the emulator this week. Rest assured I'll keep you up to date with all the new developments.

joshisposer said...

GmDude66 said...

Yeah man, thanks for updating the blog :D

Morgan said...

Good to hear from you StrmnNrmn, this week's release sounds great

Tomppa said...

No rush, I'm happy as long as there is a next version coming some day or the current one is good enough :)

stee said...

Thank god your still alive

The rumor was than sony hired a assain to take you out.

joshisposer said...

This release is great. I can actually wait, unlike the WTF t-shirt. w/e, don't rush yourself stmnnrmn, you're doing great no matter the size of the improvements.

Imtiaz said...

Its good to hear from you. Let there be successful N64 programming again! I hope you keep increasing the speed. Good luck in all your endeavors!

jangoisbaddest said...

I just stumbled onto this wonderful creation, and I have to tell you that I am both amazed and impressed with your work. Mario and Star Fox run at nearly full speed with little graphical bugs, and on a handheld device no less! Keep up the amazing work - I long for the day that I can play Zelda: OOT and Perfect Dark @ full speed, and I'm sure you'll be able to do it in no time!

Mario Kart God said...

Keep up the good work Strmnnrmn!!!!

jangoisbaddest said...

Oh, I forgot to add something - there's a slight bug that occurs most severely in Zelda - the text gets garbled often (ex: The Deku Tree lasdcvn:"Pq quickly!"). In case you didn't know already (which you probably do lol),

wally*won_kenobie said...

yeah its to do with the way its rendered..

johnybon said...

Great to hear from you Norm, all power to your elbow, mate. Really looking forward to R9, every release so far has been simply amazing.
On another note, how's your progress going on those texture fixes Wally? Will you post here if you release a revised build?

wally*won_kenobie said...

Johnnybon:

Yeah i will post another release when i start term break (next week)

Im just going to get micro machines working a bit better then release!

Seeing some games use the same mux data, they have to be entered carefully

wally*won_kenobie said...

Update: decided to look into SSB, will be doing so today

Morgan said...

Good look Wally, you got the DKR jon to right?

wally*won_kenobie said...

DK draws right but is a bit odd

is the place of the release

Enjoy!

BTW it goes ingame with PSPlink but not without . something strmnNrmn needs to look into

Mario Kart God said...

How do I get it to work wally? And Strmnnrmn you said that you are releasing it this week, can you give us the day?

N64-Lover said...

"Fortunately things are quietening down again so I should have some free time to work on the next release of the emulator this week"
Mario Kart God: Where does it state in the above remark that there will be a release this week? I suggest you read it again!

Chaz said...

Hey StrmnNrmn one quick question. Why dosnt Daedalus use Kernel Mode?

tsurumaru said...

Hi all

Chaz,

I'll answer that for you, Kernal access for all PSP users is a new development, when the emulator was first released the 2.5 firmware wasn't even hacked.
At some point probably the Sound release using the Media Engine version most likely a 1.5 firmware kernal access version would have to have been released (to use the ME) however this would have alienated the 2.0+ firmware users.
With all the new exploits allowing kernal access for up to 2.71 we shouldn't have a two tier release problem.

Chaz said...

Thanx tsurumaru, soon with the .99 eloader and dax's 2.71 homebrew lancher everyone will have Kernal and Daedalus will most likey use it. :)

Mario Kart God said...

Strmnnrmn, do you think you will be able to get the speed another 3-6 fps by the next release?

N64-Lover said...

Oh Brother! Why don't you wait and find out what's included. I am sure we will be informed of any changes via this very blog, you wont influence the next release through suggestion.
Anything is better than nothing, and with that in mind.. I am more than happy to wait!

Morgan said...

Wally nice work man really! The Super Smash Brothers *in game trick* still works! For any of you trying to get past the title screen with Dynarec ON just do this! Go to the title screen, wait til the tutorial screen pops up after about 10sec, then whenever hit start. When it brings you back to the title screen QUICKLY hit start, then hit start again QUICKLY for which game mode you want. This will bring you to the character selection screen if you choose 1player mode, after you select you character the game freezes but hey it's better than nothing. Maybe using this trick I can find a way to get in game. Wally I take it you have already passed on your notes to StrmnNrmn so he can enter the blendmodes for his official release?

SANiK said...

Great work, keep it up all the way

Although, you should check out the N64 game "doubutsu no mori"... also known as Animal Crossing

It's full of slow downs and texture glitches (it's so bad that all that one can usually see is black, with a texture here and there)

(If you need the rom don't be afraid to ask)

thank you Sanik
you have helped me find the Animal Forest rom. I have been looking for this for a while but I didn't know it had another name.

wally*won_kenobie said...

morgan: Thanks for that

I havent passed anything on to strmnNrmn yet. He doesnt reply to his emails often enough so i doubt it will be in R9 :)

wally*won_kenobie said...

Sanik: I will look into this :)

thanks!

wally*won_kenobie said...

i have looked at this game..

I dont think i can do much about it for now, strmnNrmn implemented that mux which is concerned. However I have attempted to install the others and managed to get the N64 logo to show correctly.

Until i figure what is going on with the bkground, i cant do much about it.

RyanMWolfe said...

Does Wally's Version Go any faster. Also does it help out mario 64 Graphicly or Speed wise, because mario 64 is almost perfect KEYWORD ALMOST

wally*won_kenobie said...

it only shows various graphical improvements in mario 64

Only one noticable change so far which is the lantern

RyanMWolfe said...

I Also Would Like To know what the Heck is wrong with half of STAR. Its Black?

SANiK said...

Whatever the case, thanks wally for taking the time to even look at the game. I really appreciate that.

Mario Kart God said...

Hey Strmnnrmn I can't wait for R9!!!! I know it will be awesome! Your my favorite coder! Keep up your amazing work!!!!!

___>>---skulz--->___ said...

hy guys i'm skulz, and first i want to say to strmnnrmn TNX. I follow your progress since the r1 relase. Now here my question: the daedalus can speed up with something like a n64 BIOS? (just like the progress that the gpsp made).

wally*won_kenobie said...

ryanmWolfe.
Its to do with the way shadows are rendered i think.

Sanik: no problem mate!

___>>---skulz--->___: The bios is emulated however some parts are really buggy so it could cause slow downs or games not to boot

RyanMWolfe said...

Ok Guys i would like to know if there are any games that run good and Nobody is Talking about. like games that might not be fun, but run Good if anybody has any games that they think run good then let me know please

N64-Lover said...

Wally... There is no bios with the n64, boot code is in the rom?!

wally*won_kenobie said...

I thought that :P

N64-Lover said...

Lol ..Hehe And me ;)
