iDeaS Compatibility List

Recommended Posts

With the release of iDeaS v1.0.1.3 (v1.0.1.4, v1.0.1.5, v1.0.1.6, v1.0.1.7a, v1.0.1.8a, v1.0.1.9 beta) that included support for commercial ROMs, I thought it might be helpful to come up with a compatibility list. Fully working games will be shown in green, partially working games will be shown in yellow, and games that do not work at all will be shown in red. Feel free to submit your own test results!

 

UPDATE: With the release of iDeaS's audio plugin aud.dll (latest: v1.0.0.5), some games now have working sound! :D

Unofficial iDeaS Compatibility List

 

Notes: All games USA unless noted otherwise. All games tested with CPU speed set to Normal unless noted otherwise. All versions of iDeaS after v1.0.1.9 have aud.dll v1.0.0.5 already included. You will have to download and install the AviCapture.dll and wifi.dll plugins yourself.

 

Save Type: (E4)= EEPROM 4kbit, (E64)= EEPROM 64kbit, (E512)= EEPROM 512kbits, (F2)= FLASH 2mbit, (F4)= FLASH 4mbit, (Auto)= iDeaS chooses the save type

 

 

iDeaS v1.0.1.7 + aud.dll v1.0.0.2

- Pokemon Diamond (Auto) - Works at a full 60 fps with sprites! If you disable frameskip, the sound is nearly perfect, too.

EUR Frame Rate: 45 FPS Save Type: Flash128K

Looks like I'll need 2 more things from ya:

1. The version of iDeaS you used (v1.0.1.3 or v1.0.1.4?)

2. The real save type (Flash 128kbit is not an option in the iDeaS emulator.)
