Default Dolphin Unofficial SVN Build 4460 (for Windows)

A new 'unofficial' SVN build of The Gamecube and Wii emulator Dolphin has been released. Quite a few changes, fixes, and enhancements are present in this new version. Sit down, grab a coffee, and read on:

Dolphin GUI/Integrated Tools:
  • Memcard Manager: Fixed exporting gci files
  • Many fixes related to the GUI now supporting unicode
  • Move to wxAUI, which is wxw-speak for GUI with decently modern features
  • Gamelist has new, improved look and feel (you can jump to games alphabetically with you keyboard)
  • Added ability to dump full filesystems from GC and Wii discs. For GC discs, this includes the main apploader and dol
Dolphin Core:
  • Add "auto" mode to the frameskipper
  • Massive_ stability fixes and bugfixes to JIT/JITIL
  • Implementation of Instruction Cache (interpreter only)
  • More accurate and complete FPU emulation (mostly visible in interpreter)
  • Added/Fixed Tool-Assisted-Speedrun features
  • Added the Triforce baseboard's SI and EXI devices (and JVS I/O), and media board behavior.
  • Implementation is enough to get some games running, but requires more work for more games
  • Many fixes to Netplay feature
  • Allow plugins to be specified from the command line
  • Fix some issues with loading WADs
  • Stabilization of savestates
  • Added "Reset" function - the equivalent of tapping the reset button
Audio (Common audio features):
  • Added ALSA backend
Video (Common video features):
  • Fix PeekARGB
  • Fix flickering in some games
  • Optimization of shader generation and handling
  • Generally better shader error handling
  • Add widescreen hack
Wiimote (actually fixed in internal IPC HLE):
  • Fix wiimote usage in homebrew
  • Enable editing of registers displayed in the register window
  • Add ability to flip between ASCII and floating point values in mem view
OpenGL plugin:
  • Remove unneeded projection hacks
DirectX plugin:
  • Fixed up and FAST! (literally too many fixes for me to list ;p )
  • Enable toggling of safe texture cache
  • Enable toggling of EFB reads from cpu
Software Graphics plugin (NEW!):
  • Totally new plugin, intended for debugging and very accurate emulation - SLOW, don't feel the need to tell the team to make it faster
DSPLLE plugin:
  • More reversing done, more left to go
DSPHLE plugin:
  • Fix various games booting where they would hang before
  • Reversing and implementation of many of the more intricate behaviors of ucodes, expect better sound in most games.
  • Improve SD interaction
  • Fix rom dumping
  • OSX build compiles and runs...(yes, even Snow Leopard)
  • OpenCL is being actively worked on to speed up texture conversion and other areas. Not enabled in normal builds yet.
  • Many, many tweaks here and there to increase speed, stability, and code cleanliness
You can get this new build over on the Dolphin homepage. You'll also find it within our Dolphin page.
