Regen 0.97 is now stable on my laptop if I turn Alternative Timing on. Thanks! Did notice a problem where Regen crashes when you open a SMS rom when there is already a rom loaded (or as far as I can work out that's what triggers it)

Ha i downloaded and for SSE2 but no launch at all strange, maybe it only for SSE2 Processor's
currently my processor have all instruction set: SSE1 SSE2 SSE3
Hmm, its working for me fine here. Is anybody else having the same problem? You may have problems if you have an Athlon.
Lawnmotherman still have clicks in sound
Yeah, I can't find where this problem is. It'll take a bit of time to fix this ;) .
Alternate timing work strangly! FPS jump 58-60 and sound with small distortions
Hmmm, disable Alternate Timing and edit Regen.ini and change "SoundBufferSize" to 4 or 10 and see if the FPS is still jumpy.
Game Gear screen very wide! with Correct aspect 4:3, this is fresh bug!
This option isn't supposed to be used for the Game Gear :) .
64-bit is always nice since I'm intent on making this a completely 64-bit system, but what I'm really looking for is a new build of Regen/GTK+. The old 0.95 build still works, but I'd like to be able to use my gamepad with Regen.
Yeah, updating the Regen on Linux is the next thing on the list. And I'll make 64-bit linux build as well then.
Run Regen 0.97 and launch in Vista applications with UAC, but it still cause to crash without error messages (this is no serious error, i just want sometimes launch another task's)
The problem is that I don't have Vista right now to test what is causing the problem. I'll check it out as soon as possible when I get access to Vista/7 system.
"Micro Machines 2 Turbo Tournament" now! not create Sram at all!
"Micro Machines - Military" still not create Sram
It should work. I personally tested this (like a hundred times). You have to disable "Autofix Checksum" for Micro Machines Military.
In Genesis: Sonic 3D Blast on first level: special stage cause to crash Regen 0.97!
I ran this game as well before releasing (and that stage). I now think there maybe some other problem with your computer setup thats causing some weirdness with Regen.
I tested more than ~100 games, end 1~2 levels in each game!
That is great and incredible. Thanks a lot ;) . (you may have noticed that I've put your name on the "Credits" section of the read me :) ).
But damn, with all the changes you could of bumped the version number to 1.0.
Nah, 1.0 has to have something big and special :D. (and maybe it will :P)
Also, if you ask Snake for it, he may give you the Vista/7 code so Regen can run without choppy framerates when Windows Aero is enabled.
Yeah, I'll ask him some time. Right now, there isn't much use for it since I don't have either Vista and 7 to test. By the way, consider all other requests done ;) .
Also, I took the liberty of fixing some typos
Oh, the shame :oops: . I guess I should start using a spell checker.
Regen silently crashes when selecting Save state as, and crashes when selecting Load state as.
Yeah. Its been fixed

Hmmm....I'll check it out. Thanks for the report.

The Vista/7 UAC issues can *probably* be taken care of by adding a manifest within the program containing...

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
   <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v2">
      <security>
         <requestedPrivileges>
            <requestedExecutionLevel
               level="highestAvailable"
               uiAccess="False"/>
         </requestedPrivileges>
      </security>
   </trustInfo>
</assembly>
This will force Regen to run as an administrator (it'll prompt the user for the admin privileges).

It'd be very useful to Vista/7 users. I know Byuu has the code now too, I think all you need to do is e-mail Snake about it - or maybe even ask Byuu. w00t, after those requests, I can't think of anything else. :lol:

P.S. You did fix the bug where when you turn cheats "off" the effect doesn't turn off. Now I can disable or change the cheat effects in-game.

Id proccess 0xef8, time launch of application 0x01ca50bb15bd5962.

Plus i try run these games without "Brighten" and "Boost PSG Noise" Regen still crash on these games.

After load any Game Gear games all Genesis Games after 5-7 seconds Crash!

I almost forgot, old problem with sound "Sonic the Hedgehog 1" still not fixed.
"Lawnmowerman" sound still have clicks and distortions.

Documentation and history file not open in "help tab" during game play! i want read text, play and drink tea! :D

I found all known crashes with Genesis and Game Gear, please fix really serious bugs as soon as possible
If you not have these games i can give you "Tails Adventures" and some others! ;-)

Hmm... i think almost all crash bugs occurs in VDP, plus some conflicts Game Gear and Genesis.

Almost all my games work without any crashes on Regen 0.96
But on regen 0.97 it crash'y glitch'y

My computer very stable all another emus work great and PC games nextgen work perfectly. Plus Regen 0.96 worked more stable than 0.97 ;-)

For example you may launch Sonic 3D Blast, Golden Axe 3

In Golden Axe 3 then you select character appear lightning and sound SFX, it loud at 8% than in Kega Fusion, but if you select Boost PSG Noise
it will be like on real Mega Drive! ;-) this game hard writed in my brains, i remember each SFX and Melody! and easy can detect changes.

Sonic 3D Blast, when play intro movie in music have PSG Noise, by default it more high at 10%, but if you select Boost PSG Noise, it may cause overload volume, recommended settings PSG 1.40 and enable Boost PSG Noise, and it will be more close to real thing ;-)

I really can't understand why people all in this forum say: Boost PSG Noise for test only, it may clip sound, but i think someone "hate" PSG
and try to decrease it, i don't play with this rules, my main task is help make "Perfect" emulator which completely better than real thing! and TV set sound output.

Sega games have more melodies than digital sfx and samples.
It means picture of music not full, it must be like a rainbow!
Stupid drums and bass with very silently PSG really annoying me!
My neighbours, can't asleep, because i play "Sonic the hedgehog" games
very loud "Ring" SFX sounds more loud than all music and other things!
But i found Regen emulator which allow me to balance volumes, now Rings this is no very loud thing! ;-) with good PSG volumes and Overdrive it real thing!

I'm Crazy Meloman! i love "Rock" music, "Instrumental" music, and Sega Melodies, and completely hate any another genres.

Why i say it? my really first console: Nintendo 8-bit, she have good melodies in games: Super Mario Bros, Guardian Legend, Rockin' Cats, Star Force, and many many more cool games! ;-) after 1 year, i buy first Sega Mega Drive 2, just this is my life, and good past time, and someone say what loud PSG Wrong thing? I can't understand it
But Very huge Thanks for super accurate emu Regen :D

Hi AamirM

I forgot to say:

After Game Gear games for example:
I run Sonic and knuckles, appear SEGA logo with crappy slow sound and game crash with error message.

P.S All Genesis games crash after show "Logo"
