Jagulator 2.0.0 (Preview) Release: Today is the day I am releasing a ´preview´ release of Jagulator, the first official release of the emu since 1.5.1 (many, many years ago). I do need to point out that this is not a polished final release by any standards but provides an opportunity for all outside the project, well everyone but me
, to get a chance at seeing how things are progressing. You can download preview release 2.0.0 HERE. No fancy installer, simply extract the contents of the zip file. No fancy manual, yet, so here are some things you NEED to know to get things going;
Long filenames are not supported so you will need to ensure any rom images you attempt to load do not have ´spaces´ in the name.
Jagulator has a command window style interface (what no fancy GUI!!!)
Typing help will show you the available commands.
To load a rom from the command line, type; rom ; For example; rom tempest
To start the rom executing after it is loaded, press F5.
Homebrew roms are supported but must be absolute binary files. File types with headers are not currently supported. To load these you will need to know the hexadecimal load address. Those of you who have used tools such as the Skunkboard will be familiar with this. For example, say we have a binary file of BadCoders 4m(Metal) demo with a filename of ´badcode4m´ and we know the load address is $4000, we would type; rla 4000 badcode4m.
Again, to start a homebrew binary, press F5.
I have included a compatibility list of the roms/homebrews I have tested against here in the zip distribution and on the Status Page of this site. If you would like software tested against Jagulator then please send me your binary.
Video windows are currently a set size and I know they are not all accurate but work for now.
The debugger is not present in this build.
There is no audio or CD emulation in this build.
Oh, before I forget, there are not commercial or homebrew rom images supplied with this distribution. Those you will have to obtain for yourself.
Controller 1 is supported only in this release and it is currently a non-configurable set of keys, as follows;
A, B, C Buttons - ´A´, ´S´ and ´X´
Option Button - ´O´
Pause Button - ´P´
Joypad Numeric Buttons - ´0´ thru ´9´ on the numeric key pad
# and * Buttons - ´/´ and ´*´ on the numeric key pad
