Hello,

On high resolution displays (like my 4K TV running at 4096x2160, with 250% display scaling), most of the UI elements are unusable. Attached are two screenshots showing what the input config window and the cheat window look like.

Gut feeling is that a Display Scaling setting of 250% is responsible; does the problem go away if you set Display Scaling at 100%? (I know you can't leave the setting this way, but if you could confirm, that would be good)

If it fixes it: author may need to adjust text display bits to take screen scaling percentage (or maybe DpiX / DpiY?) into consideration.

With no display scaling, the UI works as intended, so it's definitely related to that. I know not everyone uses this feature yet, but going forward into the future with higher DPI displays becoming common or the norm, it will become more of a concern.

I love puNES and hope to see a RetroArch puNES Core one day, such a wonderful emulator!

Hi

i would like to buy a a mini-pc (mini-itx) to connect it to my tv fullHD for retrogaming.
Is PuNes supported in the same way both from Intel i5/i7 and AMD Ryzen 2600X/2700X?
I would like to buy an AMD Ryzen 2600X, cheaper and with really good performance. Or is it better to buy and Intel processor becasue it has a better compatibility with PuNes?

thanks

How does puNES determine SRAM size for MMC5 games that have an unknown CRC and no NES 2.0 header?

There's a standing recommendation to default to 64K. When w7n (a member of the FamiTracker users' Discord server) complained about an emulator not following this, I recommended that ROM authors could specify the correct RAM size in an NES 2.0 header. But w7n claimed that it would be just as easy for each emulator author to default to 64K for pre-NES 2.0 headers, as specified on the wiki, as it would for each ROM author to switch from the old header to NES 2.0.

I'm asking this with respect to multiple emulators' MMC5 implementations, as each may or may not be affected by this design decision.

Post subject:  Re: puNES Emulator

Currently, homebrew MMC5 games not in puNES's database must use a NES2.0 header and must specify the amount of RAM as the submapper field (sigh): 0=8k, 1=default=none, 2=8+8, 3=32. In the absence of a NES2.0 header and lacking a database entry, the corresponding value is a C global, so initialized to 0 by crt0 and not changed subsequently by code.


All that said:

is a shitty argument. Not only are underspecified headers a problem for emulator authors, but they're also a problem for hardware. It reeks of entitlement: "why should I specify what I need when I could make it everyone else's problem?" Furthermore, if a person does want to make a physical reproduction, how do they know what board is used? Do they have to do rework? Add parts? Can they use an existing thing without modification? Instead of just bundling that information in the first place the person now has to open the homebrew/romhack in a debugging emulator to find out.

P.S. "There was a text file that specified that" doesn't count. It will be separated for the ROM file and then it's as good as never having existed.

puNES 0.103 is out:
Quote:
Changelog:
0.103
- Added support for the UNIF mapper UNIF DREAMTECH01.
- Fixed mapper MMC5 and 213.
- Added support for NSFe format.
- Added OpenBSD support.
- Added support for IPS, BPS and XDELTA patches.
It's possible to patch the ROM through 3 ways:
1) rename the patch with the same name as the ROM and copy it to the same directory where the ROM is present (example: if "Adventures of Lolo (U) [!].nes" is the name of the ROM, rename the patch in "Adventures of Lolo (U) [!].ips")
2) drag it to the emulator window (compressed patches are supported)
3) apply it via the "Apply Patch" item in the File menu (compressed patches are supported)
If more than one patch is present in the compressed file, it will always be possible to select which one to apply. In order to automatically apply a patch to a ROM, in addition to method 1) it is also possible to create a compressed archive that contains both the ROM and the patch. In this case the name of the ips file isn't important (example : compressed file contain "Adventures of Lolo (U) [!].nes" and "adv.ips").
- Rewritten the UI for the settings.
- Added the compatibility of the UI for High DPI.
- Rewritten and uniformed GFX stack.
- Increased performance by 20%/30%.
- Dropped out dependencies from SDL and QT4 libraries.
- Now it's necessary that QT5 have compiled with support for SVG (and OpenGL for OpenGL version).
- Fixed the management of VSync (when you change this option you need to restart the emulator to apply it correctly).
- Added the ability to change shader parameters if supported by the shader.
- Added a palette editor.
- Added in Video Settings an option to show FPS.
- Eliminated a lot of unnecessary code.
- Fixed many many bugs and increased the accuracy of emulation.

hi, i had the 0.102 version, sdl 64 bit. Now i want to update to 0.103. Well, the updated version of the sdl is the opengl version? Is so, in order to update correctly the emulator have I to overwrite the punrs64.exe fil and the 3 .dll files (7z.dll, cg.dll, cgGL.dll)? Is it correct?

thank you

Hi Legolas, the answer is yes to all three questions.

Another question: in my previous folder, with sdl version, i had in addition a SDL.dll file: can I delete it now? It is not necessary, am I right?

Hello,

Anyone has trouble with the first Mega Man? I just get a green screen when I load it.

Thanks a lot, the emulator is very nice really.
