New release will be Regen 0.97?, Good! i wait for testing new release!
Yes the next release will be 0.97. For Regen 1.0, I intend on adding some big things :D .
5 days of non-stop testing (All my 156 Games!) i found:
Wow! :shock: You are my best friend now ;) .
4 in 1 - Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing, Sram issues, no save game, maybe due to bad checksums, i try all ways but not work.
I cut 4 in 1 (WinHex editor) and make file "Evander Holyfield.bin" Sram still not work.

Micro Machines 2 Turbo tournament work with Autofix checksums,but another game
Micro Machines Military - It's a Blast! don't create Sram (maybe game don't support it?)
Yes, the SRAM issues are known and have already been fixed for the next release. Micro Machines Military has an EEPROM. By the way, have you selected "Save SRAM/EEPROM" from the "System" menu? If that is not checked, Regen will not create SRAM/EEPROM files nor will it load them.
Some strange bug with Sonic 3D blast: listen BGM 02 and hold -> to change numbers 00 - 20 you may notice
changes of intonation, and this happen in another game "Sonic The Hedgehog 1" in Labyrinth Zone:
underwater, when Sonic picks air bubbles, this sound effect sometimes
sounds not correctly.
I could not notice the bug in Sonic 3D, can you upload a recording of it somwhere (in mp3)? Also, if you can provide me with a savestate of Sonic The Hedgehog 1 in Labyrinth Zone, it will be really helpful.
Seriously bug after NTSC games, PAL games run at 60FPS and music play very quickly with distortions! I test it in Kega Fusion all work fine
Yes, its fixed for 0.97. Thanks for the report however.
Please tell me approximately date of new release, and i put some money to download Regen 0.97
I can't really say but it will be soon enough ;) . I've been really busy with some real life things like job/work so I have been out of the loop for a while. But now I have some free time. So the next release will hopefully be soon.

Thanks a lot again for all this testing and bug report. It is REALLY appreciated.

stay safe,

AamirM

My first "Sega Mega Drive" was in 1993 year, i have total: 6 console's! all not work, at present time ;-) i really have 156 games! in Russia, cost of one game is 7~8$, in past, i buy a lot cartridges, 2~4 in month!
Average cost of "Sega Mega Drive" is 25~30$ yeah very cheap!
Yes, it have big troubles:

1. No Booklets inside, i can return cartridge before ending 1 month!
2. Cartridge may not work, due to region code (Usa,Jap,Eur)
3. Cartridge's and Console's "Made in China"
4. In city, impossible to find "normal" Cartridges and Console's (All Made in China!)

I really happy, i best friend! i always help :D

Unfortunately:

My Modem, very limited, for examle if i want send e-mail's i must pay more money 20-25$ every month! i trick my provider's ;-) i just put some money every month 3-10$! this possible! Ha ha :D but :-( Provider's ate my money, if i just watch internet pages my money ends! if i download free programs my money ends too! it true. i believe in 19 October, maybe i have "wire" connection like example "dial-up" or other types.

I don't known, how to send file Sonic 1 "game save"
it really my first try and forum! and due to wireless internet, it can be impossible for me, i have big troubles with mail's and send files :cry:
And i never give up, i help with Sonic the hedgehog 1, i have some cheats!

you can select level in Sonic the hedgehog 1:
Then Sonic Title screen appeared press: Up Down Left Right, Hold A and Press "Start" (Button) If all do right, level select screen appear, select Labyrinth zone 1 act, in this place have underwater zone. :-)

Then find first bubbles, Then Sonic "jump" and "picks" 4~7 bubbles(it may take 45seconds) sound effect of "breathe" maybe wrong sometimes ;-)
I tryed to change sound buffer: "SoundBufferSize=14" but it not help.

Yes SRAM/EEPROM selected from menu and AutoFix Checksum's too, Micromachines - Military still don't create save game!

I really learned all stuff of "INI" file 4 month's ago, and some header's of my ROMS (WinHex Pro version) i can cut my games into pieces like example: games 4-in 1 and 19 in 1, and increase all spec's in my "Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction ;-)

Ah yeah. I know the feeling of having slow expensive dial-up internet. I myself got a fast connection this year. Before that I was on dial-up as well.

By the way, just to let you know, there is a Russian translation of Regen which may help you. You can download it from here. Translation was made available thanks to Denver with some minor fixing/additions thanks to NeKit.

Thanks i download it! :-)

Fresh Bugs!

i don't write about these strange problems a long time:
I tested "Super Mario Bros [Unl][!]", on Regen 0.96, show black screen only one line of text on screen:
"Decode Body Error", next "Super Mario Bros [Unl][f1]" work perfectly!
I launch Kega Fusion, both "Super Mario Bros [Unl][!]" and "Super Mario Bros [Unl][f1]" versions work perfectly!
In past, one "Real Sega MD2" show this message too, but another Console's not :-0

Another "Mad" Game:
"Prince of Persia" in Real Sega MD2, game have music during gameplay, but i try run on all emu's
no one play music, just play intro music at the start game. Maybe i have [Unl] version on real cartridge?
i search dumps of this game in last month, but all ROMS work without music! :-0

Yes, i must more practice, all my problems with English is:
Times: Past, Present, Future, and some other small problems. ;-)

Я верю что в один прекрасный день эмулятор Regen будет самым лучшим на свете,
я сразу заметил, у этой программы большие перспективы, да Kega Fusion может и
функциональней, но у меня нет ни одного Sega CD диска, и только три игры для Sega 32X.
К сожалению, я всё ещё использую этот проклятый USB SKYLINK интернет, у меня нету столько денег
чтобы усмирить голод этих ужасных провайдеров!

Всем удачи! и больших успехов :D

I really happy! :D
I must say more:
now i registered in "Mail.ru" this is free service!

In my mp3, you may notice, what all music recorded with PSG Boost = 1.650000, i tested 4 months ago "with default values of PSG"
these games, and these issues with games i noticed, i have 2 Stereo speakers on 3~5W, i use Equalizer "Jazz" and
PSG Boost 1.650000, all this things very close to my real console, i really don't know how it work on big
speakers on 20~45W, but i test it on computer of my friend, he have "Sven" speakers on 15W, ha! i really surprised
Melodies sounds on 11% lower than on my small speakers! ;-)

I still think about game: Prince of Persia, something wrong with this game, i really think what music skipped! :-) i have original cartridge and music play during gameplay i really remember! ;-)

You found some new bugs from my reports?

Post by Shadow » Tue Oct 13, 2009 11:55 am

AamirM

In last week i send you 2 e-mails, and i worry about this,
you really got my reports? in this forum no one post
new messages (old 8 october).

Due to changed my profile in "mail.ru" i really worry about this.

In Kega Fusion 3.63 my "3" "Sega 32x" games, work without
any improvements, just small speed up in "Spiderman"
"Knuckles Chaotix" still have minor glitches.

Why sound wrong in Kega Fusion 3.63? for testing just
load "Sonic 3D Blast" in intro music no have static PSG effects,
In Regen with default PSG boost it work more correctly whan in Kega Fusion, because i perfectly remember music on real thing and i never forgot it ;-)

I don't know, my translated readme_ru.txt and hystory_ru.txt maybe really useful for russian people?

Maybe in next month Regen 0.97 will be released?

Ha! Denver use "software Translator" for translation russian.lng
I detect it, i know all weak points of these programs, this is very wrong way, i never use "ANY" translation software, because it do "lotta" typos and skips, for sure some one may test my translated readme and history, all text will be translated another way, i spend 47% of my life for learn english language, yes i still dreddfully write text, because 98% free time, i sit in very silently room, no one talk with me on english, talk with parents? ha! they know me at 100%, plus they don't know english at all yeah very bore!
I only listen and read text in my english versions PC Games, yeah i can perfectly translate in russian language, i can't find easy ways, i must more practice, i use only english software, i hate russian language! ;-)

If some one teach me more?

Зря ты так. Смотри, Большой Брат следит за тобой. ;) Но переводы хелпов, хистори и менюшки - это все же полезное дело. Продолжай в том же духе, т.к. русское эмусообщество плотно юзает Regen. Я говорю от имени Эмураши и Эмуленда.

Правда? Я очень рад что моя работа оказалась полезной :-)
Буду очень стараться! :-)

Просто в последнее время, я немного разочарован переводами других переводчиков, дело в том что они переводят не точно, например в компьютерных играх, в прикладных программах, лучше знать английский язык, чем пользоваться трансляторами!
Но я буду помогать и дальше, так же надеюсь что у меня наконец будет нормальный Интернет, это говорит, что я буду работать гораздо эффективнее чем раньше. :D

Так же передай огромное спасибо AamirM отличный эмулятор у него получился, так же я очень волнуюсь, мои e-mailы добрались до него или нет, я сменил адрес в mail.ru :D

Спасибо

AamirM не из русских, так что увы. И это, здесь англоговорящий форум, давай дальше писать на английском, ага? Неуважение получается.

PS 2all: Sorry. We will stop talk in Russian. We will continue in English.
