This is a new version of Virtual JaguarX, the Atari Jaguar emulator for Xbox.
Changes in the emulator core
* Small speed improvement, removing redundant checks
* Audio quality has been improved in several games, like Worms, Double Dragon 5, Evolution - Dino Dudes and some more.
* Applied patches from later cores, mainly related to GPU, DSP and Object Processor. This fixed some games like Attack of the Mutant Penguins, Fever Pitch Soccer, Cybermorph, Checkered Flag, and several PD games like Gorf 2000 or Duckie Egg.
* Added the possibility to run the games with the newer blitter(slower, but more compatible). This makes possible to play games like Total Carnage or Theme Park.
* Added the possibility to run the games with the newer DSP (slower, but more compatible). This makes possible to play games like Ultra Vortek, Ultra Vortex Beta, and play with sound some games that worked silently in previous versions.
* Improved the management of the joystick in the GUI. Now, if the joystick is locked, you can unplug and replug it, and it will run again (without resetting the console, like in the past version).This fix must be done in the gameplay too, in later versions.
* Several little bugs fixed
Please, keep in mind that the emulation is still far from being perfect in many games.
Roms MUST be placed in the "roms" directory. Lots of formats are valid, even zipped roms (if you have troubles with a zip, read the final part of this description). Furthermore: be sure that the "roms" directory contains at least one rom, or the emulator will crash.
Besides, keep in mind that this version of the emulator can only work from hard disk.Also, if you have a Trusty Xbox, read the final part of the "Configuration Options" section.
If you have an HD monitor, you can configure Virtual JaguarX to display graphics in 720p or 1080i resolution. In this version of the emulator, only the gameplay will be shown at those high resolutions, but the rom list menu will still be shown at 480, no matter what you configured.
To configure a high resolution, select a game in the rom list menu. After that, the emulator will show the "RECOMMENDED OPTIONS" screen. Go to the last option ("Video Mode") and select your desired resolution (480, 720p or 1080i) and after that press START to begin playing. The game will be displayed in your selected resolution.
Furthermore: you only need to do this one time. The next time that you select another rom, the emulator will "remember" your selected resolution, and it will configure it automatically as the "recommended option" (although you can change it again if you want).
Please, note that I don't own an HD TV, so I have not tested the high resolution modes myself, but beta testers have confirmed that it is working well (thank you very much to darknior for testing this!).
Please, keep in mind that the emulation is still not perfect. Even games marked in green color are not perfect (especially speaking about the sound emulation). Green color does not mean "perfect gameplay". Green color means that you can play and enjoy the game without major problems, although the emulation in many cases is not 100% accurate (or even the sound does not work at all).
------- - KEY - ------- The game plays well, or with minor glitches / slowdowns The game is playable, but it has important glitches / slowdowns The game does not work, or has critical glitches/slowdowns that make it unplayable
---------- - Games - ----------
Air Cars -> Does not work Alien Vs Predator -> Plays at good speed, but has important glitches Atari Karts -> It runs a bit slow, but it is playable. The problem is that, after a few races, the game crashes Attack of the Mutant Penguins -> It works. If you have random crashes, read the "Manual fixes" section. Battle Sphere Gold -> Does not work Brutal Sports Football -> Does not work Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tails -> Playable, although far from perfect Cannon Fodder -> Plays very well, even with sound and music Checkered Flag -> It works, but speed and framerate are not good Club Drive -> It crashes after driving a bit Cybermorph -> It works, but the framerate is far from being perfect. Besides, the recommended configuration is using not sound. You can play with sound selecting the Pipelined DSP, but if you do so, the framerate of the game is even worse Defender 2000 -> It works well Doom - Evil Unleashed -> It is playable with sound, but the size of the main window is half than normal Double Dragon V -> It works very well. It is one of the most improved games in this version Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story -> It works well, with minor glitches and slowdowns Duckie Egg (PD) -> It works well (although it has no sound) Evolution - Dino Dudes -> It works very well. It is one of the most improved games in this version Fever Pitch Soccer -> It works well. The recommended configuration is playing with sound. You can play without sound, and the loading times will be shorter, but I think that it's better to play with sound (although it is not good) Fight For Your Life -> Does not work Flashback -> It works very well Flip Out -> Does not work Frog Feast -> Does not work (it crashes in the title screen) Gorf 2000 (PD) -> It works very well (although it has no sound) Hover Strike -> It works, but it has lots of graphical glitches. You can select the "Alternative Blitter" and there will be no glitches, but the game will be really slow, so the recommended configuration is playing with the standard blitter (and with glitches) I War -> It works, although a bit slow Iron Soldier -> It loads, it lets you select the weapon, it shows you the mission briefing... and it crashes Iron Soldier 2 -> It loads and you can advance by the menu, but after that, it crashes Kasumi Ninja -> It is playable, although the sound is still not good Missile Command 3D -> It works well (recommended configuration is using no sound) NBA Jam TE (1996) -> It works Pinball Fantasies -> It works well, even with sound and music Pitfall - The Mayan Adventure -> It works, but it has graphical issues Power Drive Rally -> Does not work Protector SE -> It works very well, although without sound. You can select the "Pipelined DSP" and you will hear sound, but the game will be muted after a couple of minutes Raiden -> It works very well, but in this version, the recommended configuration is running it without sound, because it was reported that the game crashed randomly in past versions, and my investigations told that the reason was the audio. So, in this version the game runs without audio, but it does not crashes. Rayman -> It works very well, you can use overclocked audio, although the recommended option is disabling audio. Ruiner Pinball -> Does not work Sensible Soccer -> It works very well, although without sound. Soccer Kid -> It works very well, even with sound and music Space War 2000 -> It works, but it seems that some elements (like the enemies) are not shown Super Burnout -> Does not work Super Cross 3D -> It hangs the emulator Syndicate -> It works much better with this version, but it still has critical graphical glitches that make it unplayable. Tempest 2000 -> Playable at good speed, even with sound, although the music does not play well. If you have problems with Tempest 2000, read the "Manual fixes" section. Theme Park -> It works much better in this version, but it still has a lot of graphical glitches (for example, the floor is black). Anyways, it is playable Total Carnage -> It works, although the recommended configuration is using no sound. Towers 2 -> Unplayable, it has major graphical glitches Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy -> It works well (with no sound) Troy Aikman NFL Football -> It works well Ultra Vortek / Ultra Vortex Beta -> They work. See the "Manual fixes" section for more details about their configuration Val D'Isere Skiing & Snowboarding -> It works perfect until you begin the race, then crashes White Men Can't Jump -> It crashes after the title screen Wolfenstein 3D -> Perfect gameplay, although sound is not played. If you want to hear something, you can select Pipelined DSP, Frameskip 1, Sound overclockedx3, Gpu x1, Force FPS:No... and you will hear sound, but it is so bad, that it is better to play without it Worms -> It works very well, even with sound Zero 5 -> It works well, although without sound Zool 2 -> It works well, even with sound and music, although music is choppy Zoop! -> Sometimes it works, and sometimes it crashes on starting. I don't know why. Hopefully, it will be fixed in the next release
As said before, it is not needed that you change anything, because the emulator will try to select the best options automatically. There are only a couple of games (Ultra Vortek and Attack of the Mutant Penguins) where you may want to change these options manually (read the "Manual fixes" Vortex explanation).
Anyways, here is a description of the options, because you CAN change them manually if you want:
Frameskip: The emulator will skip the emulation of some frames. This can help to make the emulation faster. Also, if you enable the "Force FPS" option, using frameskip will make the needed overclocking factor to be lower, so you will probably notice better audio quality and less graphic glitches if frameskip is selected too.
Sound emulation: The DSP is the module that makes the sound in the Jaguar. This option lets you disable the sound, use normal sound, or even overclock this unit to make the sound emulation faster (although the quality of the sound will be worse if you use overclocked sound).
GPU Speed: The GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) is the module that makes the complex graphics in the Jaguar. This option lets you overclock this unit, to make the emulation faster (although you may face graphic glitches).
Force FPS: You can select an amount of FPS (frames-per-second) and the emulator will try to "overclock everything dynamically" in a smart way, in order to achieve that frame rate. In fact, you will see that in many games, the recommended configuration is "Force 50 FPS", which was the default speed for many Jaguar NTSC games.
This is not usefull for every game, because sometimes the synchronization of the modules is made by one of these modules, and if you overclock it, the game can be even slower due to synchronization issues. As allways, the recommended settings are usually the best.
There are even some games where you will see that the recommended configuration is forcing a lower number of FPS (not 50). This is normal, don't get worry by that
Use BIOS: The "BIOS" is that animation that played when selecting a game (with the red "Jaguar" word). You can choose to play this BIOS or not. Many games work both with or without BIOS, so in these games, the emulator will recommend you to skip the animation. Other games do require to use BIOS (like Rayman) and the emulator will recommend you to USE BIOS automatically. And there are even games that require to NOT use the BIOS (for example Wolfenstein 3D) and the emulator will recommend this to you too. Shortly: you will not have the need to touch this option, as the emulator selects it properly for you.
Video Mode: You can choose between 480, 720p or 1080i. The option that you chose, will be remembered by the emulator, and it will be recommended in the future for every game (so, it is not needed that you configure it all the time). Note that 720p and 1080i resolutions will only be used during the gameplay, but the rom list is still at 480 resolution.
Blitter: This is a new parameter added in this release. The blitter is the part of the Jaguar that draws the images on the screen. Now, you can choose between the classic blitter, or the newest one ("Alternative blitter"). The classic blitter is faster, while the new blitter is more compatible (although much slower). So, we will use allways the classic blitter if possible (because it is faster), and we will only use the new blitter if the games have huge glitches that make them unplayable. As allways, you DON'T NEED TO CHANGE THE RECOMMENDED OPTION. The emulator will select the recommended blitter for the rom that you selected. You will see that only a few games (like Total Carnage or Theme Park) use the new blitter.
DSP: This is a new parameter added in this release. The DSP is the part of the Virtual Jaguar that makes the sound. Now, you can choose between the classic DSP emulation, or the newest one ("Pipelined"). The classic DSP is much faster, while the new DSP is more compatible (although much slower). So, we will use allways the classic DSP if possible (because it is faster), and we will only use the new DSP if the games don't work due to audio issues. As allways, you DON'T NEED TO CHANGE THE RECOMMENDED OPTION. The emulator will select the recommended DSP for the rom that you selected. You will see that only a few games (like Ultra Vortek) use the new DSP.
INSTALLING AND/OR UPGRADING
To install the emulator, simply copy it to your hard disk, and put the roms inside the "roms" folder.
If you had the previous version of Virtual JaguarX, simply overwrite the old folder with the new one. You will even keep your saved games if you keep the content of the "eeproms" folder.
BACKGROUND LOGO AND MUSIC
The image of the screen is the logo.jpg one. You can replace it if you want. The background music is the BGM.ogg file, and you can also replace it if you want.
As far as the key mapping is related, you know that the Jaguar has 3 standard buttons (A, B and C) and a numeric keypad. The standard buttons are the most used, and they are mapped in the Xbox buttons A, B and X. After that, we must decide which is the better way to map the numeric pad. At the moment I have mapped the buttons in this way: START = 0, Y = 1, Black = 2, White = 3, Left Trigger = 4, Right Trigger = 5, dPad UP = 6, dPad Right = 7, dPad Down = 8, dPad Left = 9. Anyways, feedback will be very well received, to discuss the best way to map all these buttons.
You can exit of the game pressing START+BACK simmultaneously. You can launch a very limited in-game menu pressing BACK to change the frameskip. In fact, there is only one options that can beconfigured by the user:
* Frameskip: The default value is ZERO, because many games run at full speed (or at least at playable speed) without using frameskip. But if you play a game that runs slow, maybe increasing the frameskip can help a bit to make the game playable. Please, be warned that increasing the frameskip in the middle of the game is possible, but decreasing frameskip in the middle of the game can make it crash (you probably will have to re-launch the rom).
IS MUSIC CRAP?
There are some games that work at full speed, the sound effects are good, but the music is crap (because sometimes the quality of the sound can be very bad when overclocking the sound processor). If this is your case, and the music is so bad that you prefer to mute it, keep in mind that several Atari Jaguar games can mute the music pressing the START button (which is mapped to the '0' button of the Jaguar) and you can turn on the music again pressing START again.
So, for example if you are playing a game and the music is annoying, press START. The game will be still at full-speed, you will hear the samples perfectly (which is way better than playing without sound) and the music will be muted. In several other games, the music with overclocking is tolerable or even good, so there is no need to mute it.
Normally, you will not need to change the recommended configuration nor do any manual fix. But there are three cases where you will maybe need to do something if you have problems:
ATTACK OF THE MUTANT PENGUINS The recommended configuration works well, but I have detected random crashes with it. Anyways, it is the recommended one because the game plays much better with it. But if you have a lot of crashes, you can try other configurations, like disabling the sound (Frameskip: 1, Sound: OFF, GPU: x1, Force FPS: 60, DSP: Standard), or even using this other one (Frameskip: 1, Sound: Overclocked x4, GPU: x4, Force FPS: No, DSP: Pipelined). The first one runs without sound, and the second one runs with sound but slow. Crashes are very rare with these other configurations.
TEMPEST 2000 If the game "Tempest 2000" is showing with graphical glitches in your Xbox (the pipes are not shown properly), there is a trick that can help you. Get the file "6B2B95AD.eep" from the "eeproms-FIX" folder, and copy it in the "eeproms" folder. This should fix your problem. You will loose your current Tempest 2000 progress if you do it, but at least you should be able to play it again.
ULTRA VORTEK / ULTRA VORTEX Read this section only if you want to play the Ultra Vortek/Ultra Vortex game.
As said above, the emulator will allways recommend you the best settings for every game. You don't need to change these options. But there is a game which has several versions or dumps available in internet. It is the game Ultra Vortek, and you will be able to find even an interesting BETA release named Ultra Vortex Beta.
Unfortunately, each version of Ultra Vortek/Vortex is quite different from the others, and each version needs a different set of configuration options to play at full speed. After testing many of these versions, I have programmed that the emulator will recommend you a configuration that plays quite well in all of these Ultra Vortek / Ultra Vortex versions. In some of them, you will be able to play with the settings "as they are". In some other versions, you can play with the settings "as they are", but you will need to press START in the main menu to disable the music (because the music in the final versions of Ultra Vortek makes the game go very slow). So, in other words: you can play every version of Ultra Vortek / Ultra Vortex with the recommended settings, but in some of them (if it runs very slow) you may need to disable the music pressing START in the main menu.
But... if you are a lover of Ultra Vortek, you may want to change the configuration settings manually. The "recommended settings" are a set of options that work well for every version of the game. But if you choose a single version, you may find a set of options that makes it run better (especially in the Beta versions). The recommended options in this case, are only a set of options that make the game "playable" for every version, although in some cases they may be not the best.
I want to say thanks to all the people that helped me in the port process: Neobomb, Hyper_Eye, Madmab, Freakdave, weinerschnitzel, XtecuterX73, darknoir, the Surreal64 CE team, the creators of the original Virtual Jaguar emulator (nwagenaar, Caz, Adam Green, Aaron Giles, David Raingeard, Bernd Schmidt, Sam Lantinga, Ryan C.

" One of the biggest and most influential systems in gaming history : The Commodore 64.
With great sprite handling, graphics and the legendary SID sound chip; this is where the big software houses of today have their roots and companies like Electronic Arts became famous. Unparalleled in original games, the C64 has influenced the gaming world as no other system has.
Spanning a period from 1982 to roughly 1994 (and beyond to this day!) , the system has an unique position of being part of the 'early' 80s games machines and growing up with a new generation, with some games approaching almost 16 bit quality later on. "
Madmab for the latest ViceX update!! Wimpy for providing the Excellent Synopsis Editor!! Without it this would take another 2 years to finish!
This pack consists of :
- 4295 Commodore 64 games ; 'Handpicked' , tested, and the best and / or latest versions from groups like Nostalgia and Remember. All Renamed & Unzipped (so high scores will work). Game Images were changed when needed with extras or extra versions of a game for example.
- Previews - Scene-Demo Selection
- Boxart in High quality ; Remastered and Retouched (A lot of work has gone into this, quite some Boxart is very old and / or obscure and very hard to find. The end result is quite nice , especially on HD!)
- Newly made Action and Title shots. (Existing ones were often in the wrong colors, missing borders or very simply very boring to look at).
- Manuals & Maps - Game Info
- Game configurations! All games will load out-of-the-(X)box , no messing around with drive settings etc. All games have their own unique controller settings! So 'Cybernoid' will have weapons mapped under the controller, 'Renegade' won't need the keyboard anymore etc. Of course heavy RPG's and text adventures will need an (xbox) keyboard. However certain RPGs or Arcade-FlightSims like 'Ace 2' or 'Infiltrator' DO have mappings!
Oh and, hehe, NO SEUCK games!
This is a complete Out-of-the-Box Commodore 64 experience on Xbox! With all configurations etc. there is nothing like this on ANY system as far as I know. Something I always wanted to have myself. A lot of work , but enjoyed making it.
Future updates will follow as new games still come out on the old Breadbox! (it's life spans from 1982 to roughly 1994 and beyond as it seems!). Also updates on Xtras like Media, Box-art backs, and Game-play Movies (Thanks to Waal for taking on this impossible task!).
Just in time to power the 20th Anniversary Doom Tournament at QuakeCon 2013, I am happy to announce Odamex 0.6.4. Of particular note are further improvements to widescreen support which was introduced in the previous release and uncapped framerate. Enjoy!
+ Added vid_maxfps CVAR to allow frame rates greater than 35. Users can cap to an arbitrary frame rate or have completely uncapped frame rates. Interpolation between game logic states is used for frame rates other than 35. - Removed r_widescreen CVAR. + Added vid_widescreen CVAR (default = 0) to indicate the user prefers a wide field-of-view. + Pillar boxing is used in place of horizontal stretching. + Letter boxing is used in 4:3 video modes with wide field-of-view. * Fix the frame rate decrease that occurs when a player is looking directly at a very close wall and they are using a screen width that is a power-of-two (512, 1024, 2048, etc.). * Fix obituaries for rocket deaths. The obituary for splash damage was swapped with the obituary for direct hits. + Add support for ZDoom in Doom format horizon lines (special #337). + Add support for the ZDoom DeHackEd weapon extensions "Ammo use" and "Min ammo" and "Ammo per shot" from Eternity. * Change the ammo usage per shot for railguns to match "Ammo use" and change weapons if the railgun does not have "Min ammo". Note that if the DeHackEd patch that implements the railgun does not otherwise specify, the railgun will use the amount of ammo per shot as the weapon it replaces. * Fix a bug that sent all team chat messages to spectators on the same team. * Change the default color of team chat messages from green to orange. * Fix freezes with maps requiring large numbers of TID, such as dvii-1u.wad MAP19. * Fix a bug that would use the past position of the wrong player when performing reconciliation with sv_unlag under certain circumstances. This could be seen by flags dropping at the location of players besides the flag carrier in CTF.
