the game is not technically widescreen.
it just increases internally the resolution.

dozen of games can do that, even more so on psx

Hmm, no, I think the games listed do actually have modes that were designed for use on a widescreen TV.

For example Virtua Fighter on the 32X has an option in the options menu called 'Display' where you can select 'Normal' or 'Squeeze' and if you select 'Squeeze' it renders all the 3d at an aspect ratio that's clearly designed to be displayed on a 16:9 TV.

They predate proper standards for widescreen modes in games, but the developers added support for people with widescreen TVs anyway.

The n64 ones support it quite well. Perfect dark let's you set the aspect ratio to be letterbox widescreen on a 4:3 TV, or full screen on a 16:9 TV, or even a more cinematic aspect ratio (2.35:1 maybe)

Yeah, anamorphic 16:9 was almost common in the PS2 era, I did some of that programming myself. I should've kept the paper I did the math on ;-)

oh, well, no problem. we are late to the party anyway, given that most people willing to play with it was already using SSF smile

I still have to dig a bit more around the actual way SMPC reads multitap controllers though, because if it checks the controller presence it does not have enough registers to carry all the bits and it is not fully clear to me ATM if this just means that controllers are read through multiple 32-register accesses or what... maybe I will poke Kale about it too wink


In theory:
1. Have you checked params used by the INTBACK command? Especially if 255-byte mode is used. (page 37 of the SMPC manual).
2. Page 39 suggests that SR bit 5 must be on for "remaining peripheral data" to occur when SMPC returns data. I'm guessing that there isn't enough space for all 10 players in the SMPC buffer OREGs, so HW probably sends a first INTBACK with bit 5 on then a second one with bit 5 off.
There must also be an hand-shake flag from SH-2 side to get remaining data, no idea how that occurs exactly.

Hi,
I just tested sonic3du. In the first bonus stage, sound effects get into an infinite loop, getting louder and louder.

Don't know if this is relevant, but if it can prevent other people from tearing their hair out...

Some of the racing games, like Daytona USA CCE, use the wrong instruction to test for which CPU the code is running on, so all the bits existing in BCR1 should at least be stub-emulated(for readback).

Thanks! We only emulate the "is slave" bit in BCR1 read back right now it looks like.

Yeah, puzzled me out a lot that bug, thanks!





The whole sh2 internal stuff needs rewriting from scratch, might as well just start a branch specifically for that ..
