Dev Tool Usage
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 29 December 2000, 03:33 (PST)

Quite a big update: I went through all the PC emus and examined the EXEs to see what development tools the authors used (DJGPP, Allegro, VC++, WATCOM etc). If you are interested to see what tools are used to develop emus then take a look at the pages listed under 'Development Tools' (towards the bottom of the menu).

CPS2 Progress
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 24 December 2000, 03:45 (PST)

CPS2Shock now have a way to dump non encrypted program ROM's WITHOUT the need of bruteforcing. This will really speed things up once their software is finished. They also started work on data transfer between CPS-2 and PC but it will be a while before its finished.

Dave to support CPS2?
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 24 December 2000, 03:55 (PST)

Dave (Final Burn) has posted a snapshot of Street Fighter Zero (decrypted CPS changer version) running in Final Burn. Looks like he may be working on this in anticipation of CPS2Shock decrypting the real CPS2 games.

CAESAR Heart Transplant
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 23 December 2000, 05:33 (PST)

Upload Completed
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 09 December 2000, 02:43 (PST)

All ZIP uploading is now complete so you can download anything you want. Thanks for the additional information that people have been mailing me about. I'll update the site when I get home this evening.

Netscape Troubles
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 09 December 2000, 03:42 (PST)

Some people with Netscape 4.x have been experiencing problems with the site. I can see what has happened and put in a temporary fix which I'm hoping will remove the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience, I tested CAESAR on IE4, IE5, IE 5.5, Netscape 6 and Opera 4 but not Netscape 4.x.

Netscape Update
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 09 December 2000, 05:26 (PST)

Okay, the problem has gone away for some people but not all users of Netscape. As I won't be home for quite some time the problem will remain until I have access to my PC. I'll fix it as soon as is possible. Damned browsers!

New Information
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 09 December 2000, 14:58 (PST)

Updated the Annoid page with information provided by Brian Peek (the author) - there is a version 1.1 which basically contains the latest contact information

Removed the Pong page as it was neither an emulation or simulation.

Updated the Genital 68K page with yesterday's release (v0.12).

Added another 68K core called Musashi (the C 68K core used by MAME ).

Unofficial MAME32 with AutoFire v0.37 beta 10 has been released

Thanks Everyone
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 09 December 2000, 15:19 (PST)

I would like to thank everyone who has e-mailed to say how impressed they are by CAESAR. Also, in order to make this reference as complete as possible I am keen that you help me fill in any missing blanks. If you're an emulation author I'd be especially interested to know which development tools and libraries you used for your emu. If you've got lots of old emus stashed away then please have a look through them to see if you have anything not in CAESAR. :)

Site Launch
Posted by logiqx (http://www.logiqx.com)- 08 December 2000, 10:35 (PST)

Welcome to my new site CAESAR! Inside it you'll find information about all the arcade emulators I could unearth, the games that they support and almost every cross reference imaginable. Over at my main site I have also released CMPro/ROMCenter dats for all of the emulators inside CAESAR and a neat ROM tool called ROMBuild.

The ZIPs are currently uploading (thanks to MikeDX for use of his cable) and I won't be around tonight as we're out celebrating his birthday. Hopefully there won't be any problems with the site :o
