Bsnes-plus Git (2018/02/23) is complied.

bsnes-plus (or bsnes+) is a fork of bsnes (based on bsnes-classic) intended to introduce some new features and improvements, mostly aimed at debugging.

bsnes is an emulator for the Super Famicom and SNES video game systems. The purpose of the emulator is a bit different from other emulators: it focuses on accuracy, debugging functionality, and clean code.

What's new
- "Step over" and "step out" buttons in debugger
- Improved debugger UI with register editing
- Improved handling of address mirroring for breakpoints (extends to the entire address space, not just RAM)
- Real-time code and data highlighting in memory editor, with fast searching for known code/data locations and unexplored regions
- Cartridge ROM and RAM views in memory editor for mapper-agnostic analysis
- SA-1 disassembly and debugging
- SA-1 bus and BW-RAM viewing and (partial) usage logging
- Super FX disassembly and debugging
- Super FX bus viewing and usage logging
- SPC file dumping
- IPS and BPS soft patching
- Multiple emulation improvements backported from bsnes/higan (mostly via bsnes-classic)

Coming soon

- Rewritten memory editor
- On-the-fly ROM saving and reloading from the memory editor for quick hacking and testing
- More keyboard shortcuts for menus, etc.
- Similar addressing improvements for cheats

bsnes-plus Git Changelog:

* Merge pull request #161 from undisbeliever/unfiltered-screenshots
* Add configuration option to save unfiltered screenshots
* Double height or width of unfiltered screenshot as necessary
* Capture unfiltered screenshot

Developer @Darbnes has released a CHIP 8 emulator for the PS4. You’ll of course need a hacked PS4 running firmware 4.05 at the moment.

The developer mentions that this is a Proof of Concept at this point: input and sound are non functional. In other words, you can’t do much with it now as a gamer, but this is good progress showing that actual homebrew could be coming soon to the console.

This is an experimental emulator, currently in early stages of development, that gdkchan started last year.

The main difference from other emulators is that it is written in C#, instead of other languages like C++ where emulators are usually written.

It translates the Arm64 machine code into the .NET intermediate language (MSIL), which in turn is transformed by the .net JIT (RyuJIT) into x86 machine code.
