Greetings, mortals!

The Sega Saturn core on the MiSTer has been updated! If you've got a MiSTer (as I do - and they are awesome!) - head to Sergey Dvodnenko's GitHub page and download it. (You'll need to be signed in to Github to see the links). Make sure to download the right core (single ram or dual-ram slots, depending on your MiSTer configuration). Nice work to Sergey here - despite what's going on in the Ukraine, he keeps pumping out core updates. Stay safe!

Updated unstable main for MiSTer

By the way... if you're into the Saturn, I have begun doing Virtual Hydlide attempts (on original Saturn hardware using Mike Chi's excellent Retrotink 5x Pro) on my Twitch channel. If you want to see a truly.. ahh.. unique gaming experience, we do runs every Wednesday evening.

If you were a Nintendo kid in the 90's, you were probably blown away by how Star Fox and its SuperFX chip could render full 3D worlds on 1993 era SNES hardware. If you go back to play the game today, though, you'll probably be let down by the game's choppy frame rate, which maxes out at a halting 20 fps.

Enter longtime Star Fox ROM hacker kandowontu, who's responsible for the feature-packed Star Fox Exploration Showcase hack. This week, kando released a patch that unlocks 30 or even 60 fps modes in an emulated Star Fox (or Star Fox 2em) ROM. The result is an extremely smooth experience that probably comes closer to matching the rose-colored memories you have of early '90s Star Fox than the original game ever could.



20 fps original is smoothed out without ruining the original pacing.

As of version 1172, you can now netplay against opponents in various games. Once installed you will see text on the bottom right of the games menu that says "Not connected. Click here to find a room" and you will see the games and servers that gamers across the world are playing either on yuzu or other servers like we use to do with emulators like Kaillera, Nebula, and some versions of MAME back in the day.

From the developer:


YoYo Loader is a loader for libyoyo.so, the official GameMaker Studio Runner application for Android, for the PS Vita. YoYo Loader works by loading such ARMv7 executable in memory, resolving its imports with native functions and patching it in order to properly run. This enables to run potentially any game made with GameMaker Studio.

You'll need a hacked PS Vita in order to run this and any other homebrew on the console.
