Developer deroad has stoppped by the site today to share his latest creation, the NoRSX PC Emulator
. No, this is not a PS3 Emulator
(this does not emulate the PS3, it emulates the NoRSX PS3 environment), it is a port of NoRSX from the PS3 to the PC; meaning, if you do not have a PS3, you can still develop for the PS3 using this tool to test and release your work (you can not play PS3 Games on your PC!). This tool will be updated along with NoRSX as new features are added.
Hi everyone! deroad is here (again) to release a good tool to allow people to work with my NoRSX Library on pc. i have ported and coded the ps3 version to PC.
What it does? well it has the same functions of the ps3 version.
Is it a PS3 Emulator?
NO IT ISN'T. It's a port.
Who coded it?
What it does?
The same things as the PS3 version.
Will it updated when NoRSX (PS3 Version) will have an update?
Yes, it will be updated with the same updates as the PS3 one.
What Libs it requires?
you need SDL, SDL_image
What i can do with it? i already have the PS3 version!
Well i wrote it, since some time i don't have the PS3 and i need something to allow me to continue to work on this lib. this is why i created it; but for you can be a useful tool to test the graphics of your homebrew if you used NoRSX as the default lib; it will save you lot of time.
Authors: Deroad, KDSBest (for his performance patches).
Review by PSDev
You can get it here:
I got the honors of testing Deroads(wargio, NoRSX emulator. although at first I had trouble with compiling, that was my own fault as my Linux was outdated and I didn't have the required SDL and freetype2 library. after getting that done I started it and it looked nice, Had a middle png image and fps (frames per second) rate shown and a nice little exit message. Once you download you will notice the main.cpp this is what you're gonna use to write your NoRSX programs and that's what the NoRSX Emulator going to run. The way he has coded it is great, it's simple to make your own homebrew, from changing image, font, or rearranging the bitmap to your liking. One bit of code that I enjoyed was this snippet below
NoRSX *GFX = new NoRSX(RESOLUTION_1280x720);
that line of code basically allows you to set the screen resolution from 720x480
. This is great cause you can choose the size of the screen! another simple piece of code is
Font F2("data/Sans.ttf" ,GFX);
u32 imgX =(GFX->width/2)-(png.width/2), imgY = (GFX->height/2)-(png.height/2);
These snippets are the font and image changer. These are located in the Data folder and allow easy change for the middle image(or in your own code to be where ever you choose on bitmap)or the font type, so this emulator is giving good flexibility and have it your way.
Anyway, in conclusion, I hope you enjoy this emulator as much as I do and make sure to thank deroad (KDS for improvement patches) for his hardwork, because it's really paying off! thanks bye -PsDev
