Final Burn Legends 1.1

Recommended Posts

Final Burn Legends 1.1

 

What's new:

 

-Added ability to select any Neo Geo BIOS. There are 23 different BIOS

types supported. UniBIOS 2.3 is the default and recommended. This is

saved per game, so if a user finds a game that the UniBIOS does not work

well for they can change the BIOS for that game and it is saved

separately. When a game starts the first thing that is displayed is the

UniBIOS startup screen. Press A, B, and C (by default this is Xbox X, B,

and A) to setup the BIOS. This is only needed once per game. The user

can set the game to AES or MVS mode, change the region, and disable the

hardware test (green screen). This will make games start a lot faster.

During emulation, press P1 Start and P1 Coin to bring up the in-game

BIOS settings. There is a great cheat database built in with codes for

all games.

 

-Added suport for Ironclad / Chotetsu Brikinger. The region must be set

to USA or Japan or the game won't boot. When the UniBios 2.3 screen

appears, press Xbox B + X + A to start the BIOS setup where you can

change the region to USA or Japan. The default region is Europe so the

game will not work if this step is skipped.

 

-Fixed NVRAM saving for CPS2 games

 

-Added option to overclock the 68K CPU used in many games. Games that

use this CPU include CPS2, CPS2, Neo Geo, Cave, and others. Set it to

300% for games like Metal Slug 1, 2, ESP Rade and it will get rid of all

slowdown. If any game that uses this CPU has slowdowns then increase the

CPU speed and it may fix the issue. It also may cause bugs in the game.

 

-Added alternate ways to display the in game emulation menu. This will be

useful for players who use controllers without a right analog stick.

 

The choices are:

 

Right Analog Click

Left Trigger + Right Trigger

Back + Start

Left Trigger + Back

Right Trigger + Back

 

-Added option to display all games, parents, or clones. This applies

to the ROM browser and all filters. This does not apply to the Favorites

list.

 

-Added option to highlight parent sets. That way a user can browse

all the games and quickly pick out a parent ROM.

 

-Arcade images can now be viewed from the ROM browser. Select a game

and press the Start button. The images go in:

 

Control panel images - D:\Images\cpanel

Marquee images - D:\Images\marquee

Cabinet images - D:\Images\cabinet

Flyer images - D:\Images\flyers

In game screenshots - D:\Images\snap

Title screenshots - D:\Images\title

 

Press left and right on the D-Pad to go to the next or previous image.

Use the left analog stick to move the image

Use the right analog stick to zoom in or out.

 

-The MAME history can now be viewed from the ROM Browser. Select a game

and press the Back button

 

-Added DIP switch settings to most games. This can cause problems for

some games. Most of the time it works perfectly.

 

-Added an option to disable DIP switches. If a game runs strangely,

try disabling DIP switches.

 

-Change the crashes error message to be more generic

 

-Removed a few Genesis games that were causing the emulator to crash

 

-Fixed a bug where the Option screen wasn't loaded when a PGM game ran

out of memory or a ROM was invalid.

 

-Fixed a bug where the Flicker Filter wasn't applied when a game

started. I have no way to test this fix so if it is still broken please

post in this thread. Try testing a Neo Geo Game, Toaplan, Psykio, Cave,

CPS2, and Sega game to see if it works for all the different cores.

 

-Added an option to disable Hiscore saving. Hiscore saving is disabled

by default. This is on a per game basis. If a game works fine the first

time it's played, but then has problems the next time, it may be because

of the Hiscore saving. It can be found in the General Options menu.

 

-Cleaned up the source so that all cores use the same GUI files

 

-Added some defensive code to make the emulator more stable. Hopefully

this will eliminate the random crashes when saving a screenshot,

savestates, etc...

 

-Fixed a bug that caused a corrupt ini file when the button A was

pressed when there were no games

 

-Fixed some bugs where the default controller setting wasn't used

 

-Added an option to disable video previews. If you are not going to use

them then disable this option. It will speed up the ROM browser

 

-Added option to disable frame skipping. I can't think of one reason

why anyone should do this since it will cause audio problems and

slowdowns if a game can't run fullspeed. It is automatically disabled

when it is not needed. Forcing it to be disabled all the time is not

recommended. However, this was requested so I added it.

 

-Fixed a bug where centered text wasn't always centered.

 

-Disabled Neo Geo save states. These were too buggy and many games

crashed the emulator. This may be related to memory problems with the PC

port, my code, or something else.

 

-Removed most of the debugging code. This should add a speed up.

 

-Added an image viewer.

 

-Fixed a bug where the Main Menu video would play after exiting a game.

 

-Added the Main Menu video paths to the skin ini file. This way a user

can create a skin that uses different videos and provide them with the

skin.

 

-Added Kenshiro's fixes for Neo Geo and Psykio:

 

New Psykio games that now work:

 

  • Gunbarich
  • Mahjong G-Taste
  • Tetris the Absolute The Grand Master 2
  • Tetris the Absolute The Grand Master 2 Plus

 

NeoGeo fixes:

 

Speed up a bit more loading time

Reduce the amount of RAM on some P-X decrypting routines

Get svcpcbnd working (need a special graphic routine for the 2 * 32Mo

C-X)

Remove the support for the PCB version of KOF2003. It will never work

unless to rewrite completely the VMM support

Added samsho4k: Pae Wang Jeon Seol / Legend of a Warrior (Korean

censored Samurai Shodown IV)

Added samsho2k: Saulabi Spirits / Jin Saulabi Tu Hon (Korean release of

Samurai Shodown II)

Added a function to select the bios you want. Unibios 2.3 is the default

one.

Fixed wrong name in mslug4nd set: 263-pg1.bin ---> should be 263-p1.bin

Fixed game title of mslug3hd: Metal Slug 3 (not encrypted, decrypted C)

---> Metal Slug 3 (not encrypted, decrypted C)

Various source cleanup

 

-Added an updated cheat.dat file by neoryu

 

The changes are:

 

A “Select Background” option was added for these sets:

 

ssf2

ssf2u

ssf2xj

ssf2t

ssf2tur1

ssf2tu

ssf2xj

sfa

sfau

sfz

sfzjr1

sfzjr2

sfz2al

sfz2alj

dstlk

dstlku

dstlkur1

vampj

vampjr1

vampjr2

cybots

cybotsj

cybotsu

msh

mshj

mshjr1

mshu

vsav

vsavj

vsavu

vsav2

 

An option to play as True M. Bison / Shin Vega was added for these sets:

 

sfa3

sfa3u

sfz3

sfz3jr1

 

 

The emulator did not see the cheats at all for these sets:

 

sfz2al

sfz2alj

 

-This has been adjusted.

 

The emulator did not see the “Select Character PL1 /Select Character

PL2” cheat for these sets:

 

sfa

sfau

sfzj

sfzjr1

sfzjr2

sfz2al

sfz2alj

 

-This has been adjusted.

 

I made many changes to the characters’ names for the Euro, Japan, and US

romsets for all of the corresponding CPS2 fighting games. It makes it

easier to apply a cheat pertaining to the correct character when you’re

playing a game where the name difference matters for the cheat you

select. For example, a Balrog cheat will be an M.Bison cheat if you’re

playing a rom without corrected cheat names for the region it came from.

For the parent Euro, US, and Japan CPS2 fighting games, this minor issue

has been remedied.

 

Notes:

 

You will need to do a new install. You cannot use any previous CPS2

save states, nvram, or game settings. The safest way to upgrade is:

 

1) Delete the save file for FBL 1.0

2) Copy the FBL 1.1 folder to the Xbox

3) Copy your Roms and screenshots from the FBL 1.0 folder to the FBL 1.1

folder

 

If you ignore this step and try to copy the new files over the FBL 1.0

directory, it will not work.

 

To upgrade any of the new skins to work with FBL 1.1:

 

1) Open the ini file for the skin

2) Add these lines to the bottom:

 

MovieEnabled=1

DisplayMode=2

HighlightParent=0

PauseGame=0

MainMenuMovieSwitchEnabled=1

MainMenuVideoPath0=D:\media\background1.xmv

MainMenuVideoPath1=D:\media\background2.xmv

MainMenuVideoPath2=D:\media\background3.xmv

MainMenuVideoPath3=D:\media\background4.xmv

MainMenuVideoPath4=D:\media\background5.xmv

MainMenuVideoPath5=D:\media\background6.xmv

 

Thanks:

 

-Kenshiro for the code updates

-neoryu for the updates to the cheat.dat

-NEIL222 for the new icon

-iq_132 for help with the CPU overclock

-nonote for the Ironclad code

-Anyone I forgot

This is incredible stuff once again nes (and everyone else!) thank you.

 

Im sorry i request this now, and not before the update, but would it be possible to add support for command.dat?

 

http://home.comcast.net/~plotor/command.html

 

It is intergrated into the NEO and CPS emulators on the psp and a very nice graphical representation of movelists etc can be derived just from having the dat in place.

 

Obviously don't worry if it would be time consuming or you have no interest etc :shootem:

 

You've ruined any chances of me getting some work done today btw, hope you are happy :rolleyes:

Well i'm maybe retard, but i have a pain in the ass (in the d*** even lol). My first controller is an X-Arcade stick, the second one a standard Xbox pad. As in FBL 1.0, it's impossible for me to enter menu options (to resize the screen and modified stuff, and also remap the inputs, standard layout of X-Arcade is pretty much horrible). I really need help on that point before throw my Xbox over the window lol

 

I noticed two things: have i to change an option to see new Neil's logo? I still see the old one. Second point, the screen draws insults now when you launch a Neogeo game: "this may take up to two minutes" lol :naughty::D:)

 

BTW, nice work. It was already my favorite Xbox emulator, it is really a bamboo maker now (yeah i know it is insane but i feel it like that).

 

Edit: lmao problem solved. Sorry Nes.

Well, I would hardly call that an insult. That's so there aren't users who post "A Neo Geo game doesn't work" because they think that any game that doesn't start after 20 seconds must be broken.

Delete the MS save for FBL 1.0

Change the button combo used to start the emulation menu. There are several presets to pick from.

 

Im sorry i request this now, and not before the update, but would it be possible to add support for command.dat?

 

As far as updates go, unless there is something catastrophically wrong with 1.1, this is the last update. I will never say never, but I am 99% sure this is my last update to FBL and Xbox work in general.
