PVCS 1.2 Released –
BraveDog has released an update to his atari 2600 Emulator, PVCS. Updates are as follows
You can grab it at official pvcs website
New TIA code. (This fixes many games)
Better RIOT timer code (might still need some tweeks).
Bug fixes for AR banking (fixes problems with Starpath games).
Added CDVD.irx init (To fix limitations when burned to a cd - UNTESTED)
I just burned a CD to test this out with 1.2. With about 50 roms on the disc, only the first 30 were playable. I generated the CD with CDGenPS2.
It boots just fine, and all the roms show up in the list (because of FILES.TXT) but it wouldn't read anything on the disc past #30 or so. Also, the sound was iffy in some of the ones that did work.
All in all though, this is an awesome program. With 2000+ roms available, it will be even better when it is capable of dealing with a full CD.
Looks like I still have more changes to make to get this to work better on a cd.
I have fixed a few bugs in Starpath games (Party Mix and Sweat!). I want to code 3F bankswitching (Tigervision).
So another code release will be coming soon.
