I'll be very happy if this could be fixed...
I'm waiting for a long time to play this in MESS (and nick of Arbee remember me every day that unfortunatelly this issues are there yet frown )

Hi Kale,

First of all thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to improving MAME and MESS, that's much appreciated.

With regards to the PCE emulation, did you have the time/energy to look into the Dracula X issue? Hopefully it's not one of those "core emulation bugs"... smirk

I see some recent work in PCE emulation...
Was Rondo of Blood issues fixed already?

not sure.

changes done today should have small or no impact to actual emulation (even if they will eventually allow for plugging/unplugging the cd add-on, which is now always attached to the unit)

however, recent improvements to the cd code by Arbee might have improved the situation, if the problem was in the cd code (did Kale ever find the time to investigate what the culprit was?)

Rondo of Blood issues were in the video code; Kale was surprised that switching to the new more accurate VDP didn't actually fix it. No further action was taken. (As you can see about 5 posts before this in this very thread ;-)

well, I had read last Kale's post, but he said "he *thought* it was the video"
so I was wondering if any further investigation had happened.

if it is confirmed to be video-related, then the issue is still there for sure
thanks for explaining

Restored the PCE bugs wiki page at the request of Tafoid, but there was no content of that page archived, so it's probably a waste.
http://mess.org/sysinfo/pce/bugs
I do not plan to continue updating it. If no one sees a use for it, lemme know, I'll delete it.

(Off-topic) The same goes for the GBA bugs page.

For PCE in general :

1) In Final Match Tennis, when i switch 2 button joystick to 6 button joystick, it's like having DOWN stuck making the game unplayable. Perhaps the game doesn't support 6 button, but as it works under Magic Engine, i was wondering if it's a bug.

2) CD emulation works but at first i have a black screen, then i have to reset (Slot Device>Reset) and then the CD-ROM system is launched.

3) Why Double Dragon II CD is such a shitty game?

Many games act like this (try R-Type Part 2, for example), it's a correct behaviour, Magic Engine is simply hacked (it's full of hacks, actually).

It's a brilliant game comparing to Golden Axe there smile
