Neocd/ps2 0.5 released !
Neocd/ps2 0.5 released ! –
Development has slowed down lately, as I'm busy with other stuff,
however here is an nice little update that you should like !
Thanks to triple buffering almost all games are now fullspeed with
sound and for games that are still not fullspeed (most noticable
symptom being looping sound) you can activate a frameskip from the menu.
This is a basic frameskip of 1 that should be almost unnoticable in
quality yet still be more than enough to run games at fullspeed!
The funny thing is that neocd will now require some framerate limitation
code, as now, depending of the combination of sound enable/disable and
frameskip it can run faster than 100% !
Here is the changelog of this version :
- Triple Buffering using vsync callback (thanks to drakonite for the idea)
- CD now stop spinning once in the "insert" screen
which should help people using swap method.
- Fixed auto-animation speed (thx mame)
- Bit better sound emulation, but still not perfect
- Settings are now saved to MC, and restored at start-up
- Basic frameskip routine (off by default)
- Added an error message if bios is not found or is invalid.
- Source clean-up
Please see the readme for the new menu options,
and please give some feedback in the forum
I hope you'll enjoy it !
thanks evilo...great work!!!
going to test it now
: compatibility list moved
also I noticed a bug with this controller
when I press L2+R2 the selection menu appears but it sorts of freeze ( is that means something lol ) , plugging the official controller put everything back to normal

Reason: moved compatibility list
Thanks, but I didn't do this all this by myself lol, I tested half of the games, but it's really easy to test fast: with ps2link, it takes 5 secs to change game and relaunch the emu...
some games have really a buggy sound (like KOFs) and others really get better with frameskip, but it's really not easy to tell, let's just say that it wasn't satisfying enough to enter the "working" list (but apart from the KOF, they're all pretty close, really )
About "buggy sound" what do you mean exactly ? That the sound is buggy WITHOUT or WITH frameskip
also almost all games in the "working" list need frameskip on for fullspeed.
Thanks for all your hard work
I added your working games on the list.
actually the world heroes, fatal fury, samu spi may need some retesting...(maybe I was too harsch on them )
maybe if you don't matter, you could change the games that are ok with frameskip enable from :
"buggy sound" to "works (with frameskip)" ?
this way it would be easier to identify which games still have problems even with frameskip (since sound problems, apart for the games you mentioned like some KOF, are mainly due to a to low framerate) and why not the neocd version, so it should gives :
metal slug - v0.5 - works (with frameskip)
something like that...
else, you should create a new thread (titled "neocd compatiblity list") that I would stick... me I cannot, else you won't be able to modify it, or else.. maybe I could manage to set you as moderator on this forum...
let me see..
alright, I will make the changes and start a new thread for it , I'll retest the ones I didn't do also...
thanks! but there's no need to do that just to sticky one thread , plus that would be a terrible idea as I would just ban everyone asking "where do I put my neogeo roms on the cd?"

Hey Evilo, any plans for PS2 HD support in future? I checked some threads here but couldnt see any mention of support.
Just tested some NGCD homebrew stuff:
"Frogfeast" + working fine
"Little Demo For NGCD" + working fine
"NeoPuzzleLeague" + working fine
- NeoCD 0.3-0.5 loads, but blanked screen
- NeoCD 0.02dev crashes (run thru PS2Link 1.24)
+ NeoCD 0.02 loads if run inside PCSX2

Oh great ! I didn't even know about these homebrew stuff
Else (some teasing) for those wondering about neocd 0.6, check the compatibility list...
see you guys !
