FB Alpha 0.2.96.73 Release

To quote Treble,

“Had a bit of time to put a new FBA together. The binaries are now compiled with MinGW as I can’t get consistent results with the Microsoft compiler. Here is the what’s new;

Thanks go to the neosource forum regulars for a lot of this stuff. iq_132 has written many drivers for older games, and Oopsware has contributed some impressive drivers too. Captain CPS-X and KOF2112 have also tidied up some things. This list is from memory and some stuff is sure to be missing.”

FB Alpha 0.2.96.72 Release

The sun is shining (makes a change), the birds are singing and a new FBA has arrived! This build was originally released a few days ago at Treblewinners website, while this site (and all of emuunlim.org) had gone a.w.o.l.

Treble’s been extremely busy with other things so this release comes after a bigger gap than normal. However there’s a plethora of new additions to play with. Continue reading ‘FB Alpha 0.2.96.72 Release’

FB Alpha 0.2.96.70 Release

That will teach me to make assumptions that things don’t change. I didn’t run mamediff on the last release and hence missed some errors in the dat file that manifested themselves after the fixes in the earlier release. All should be fixed now so here is the current version.

Thanks go to LogiqX again for checking the files and pointing out the errors.

NB: This release was originally made by Treble Winner at: http://www.barryharris.me.uk/. Downloads are available here, now that the ol’ girl’s up and running again. :)
