Revamped UI Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek of the revamped UI I've been working on:

[Edit - 9:22 AM] Please don't read anything into the list of titles shown in the screenshot above! I haven't been working on compatibility in R9 (with the exception of a few PIF fixes), so it's unlikely that anything which was broken in R8 is now working. Once R9 is released I'll hold a straw poll to see if you want me to focus on compatibility in R10, and if so, which titles.



Zack said...

Awesome work man, looks a lot more cleaner than the previous. Can't wait for R9. :)

shallowlife said...

pkmaximum said...

MikE said...

MonkeyMan said...

I likey the new ui :D

Brandon said...

Zelda Majoras Mask wouldnt work on R8, I would give anything for that game to work, that would be a nice game to work with, BTW I cant wait till this is released,Please never give up on this, you are awesome,And I hope you ski trip goes well

Necro said...

wow that gui looks great man it be great if you can fit frameskip in that release enyways i can wait for the release your da man strmn =D

StrmnNrmn said...

roy chang: The font is actually the lower case letters from Bit-low, and the caps from Emulator :)

StrmnNrmn said...

matt: You're right, it should be 'ROMs', but ALL CAPS just looks a bit ugly :)

StrmnNrmn said...

Hey psdonkey - it's good to hear from you. Sorry I've not been in touch for so long :(

Anonymous said...

So by "PIF Fixes" Does this meen FlashRAM has been fixed? That seemed to be what you were describing in the PIF Fixes Post.

Does that meen they're in? Nice :D

Nice GUI, looks really user friendly! Rgis is turning out to be just as good (if not better) then the PC version of Daedalus!

Nick said...

Norman, here are the top games on th Nintendo 64, that would be nice to have on Daedalus:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Super Mario 64
Diddy Kong Racing
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Super Smash Bros.
Paper Mario
GoldenEye 007
Donkey Kong 64

Mario Kart 64
Perfect Dark

Conker's Bad Fur Day
Star Fox 64
Mortal Kombat Trilogy

The ones in bold are the ones most people (that I know of) are leaning toward. I am just trying to help, not spam, if that is was you consider it.



Nick said...

Matter of fact, click here.

Look for the games with the highest score on them. I am definatley leaning toward a Yoshi's Story game, or Banjo Kazooie/Banjo Tooie. That's all the games I would ever want.

PimpMaster5000 said...

Very sweet UI! R8 is cool enough. An update is amazing news. I dont care how long it takes you, performance is really all I care about. Thanks for sharing. If it were me, I'd keep it all to myself [evil laugh]

Pascal said...

Probably the ONLY thing you DO need to work on is compability, i dont even get how the frig you can make a new release without adding compability?! its about the games not how your emulator looks :(

Miles said...

Awesome work! As for the "ROMs" and "Roms" thing, I think "ROMs" looks better than "Roms" personally. In terms of compatibility though. The games that I want most would be StarFox64, Super Smash Bros. and StarCraft64. Keep up the great work StrmnNrmn, I look forward to more releases. :)

StrmnNrmn said...

Xion: Sorry, the PIF work has nothing to do with getting flashram working. The PIF is mainly responsible for reading the controllers, eeprom, mempaks and rumblepak.

nick: That's a good plan. Gamerankings.com lists:

1. GoldenEye 007
2. Super Mario 64
3. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
4. Perfect Dark
5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
6. Banjo-Tooie
7. Paper Mario
8. Conker's Bad Fur Day
9. Banjo-Kazooie
10. Star Fox 64

pascal: That's a valid point, but I see 3 problems that need solving: speed, compatibility, A/V (i.e. graphics and audio).

What's the point in having 100% compatibility if everything runs at 2fps with no graphics?

What I've been trying to do is focus on each of these areas in turn.

Admittedly the front-end UI is a bit of a distraction from these goals though :)

Thanks for your feedback in any case :)

Arjun said...

well done so far, ime sure this R9 Will do great, just 1 game i think everyone wants is goldeneye, lol!

Keep going that Extra mile"

G-man561 said...

Nice, I can't wait for this!!!
Is their anyway you can release R9 by this weekend!!!

Oh yeah, for R10 could fix the graphic glitches in "RUSH" (all of them)


Poohter said...

i don't rly care about compatability. if mario 64 and zelda work, plus cheat support, i would be fine with that.

PSdonkey said...


I have been busy myself as well. I am just glad that you are doing good and enjoying yourself. We're all looking forward to your next release :)

scott said...

i think that speed is more impotant then anything,as its no fun playing a bunch of games really slow,i think as soon as the emu is running games at a good speed,then compatibility and the audio and visuals.

Anonymous said...

yo madd dude does nice think you have there. lol seriously you put alot of effort on this project.

Hey the games I want to be okay looking and better quality are my favories.

Goemon Great adventure.
Mystical Ninja staring Goemon.
Mario party 1,2,3

Joan said...

From Barcelona, sincerely, you've done a grate job. Thanks ;)

Toasted said...

hi, i've just post a skin sample in the sourceforge area. Hope it will be usefull, thx for your great job.

Mattias said...

mattias here from sweden, the N64 emulator is the greatest thing that will ever happen on the psp if it will work properly. so its so fantastic to read all these exiting news about a new release from you!!! hope the most popular games will get to 30 fps someday. then my dreams would have been fulfilled.. and please make a paypal so we can donate for you :P

P said...

Hey strmmnnrmn,

I'd love it if Mario Tennis could be added to that list...

1. GoldenEye 007
2. Super Mario 64
3. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
4. Perfect Dark
5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
6. Banjo-Tooie
7. Paper Mario
8. Conker's Bad Fur Day
9. Banjo-Kazooie
10. Star Fox 64
11. Mario Tennis


Can't wait for the next release! Thanks for coming back to the surface!

MikE said...

Strmnnrmn or Storming Norman(isn't this what strmnrmn means?) majoras mask would be the best O_O

SNK said...

My dream is Castlevania 64 an F zero X !

AuraithX said...
