RetroCopy ist ein SEGA Mega Drive, SEGA Master System, SEGA Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) und Sega System E Arcade Emulator für Windows.

RetroCopy is a SEGA Genesis, SEGA Master System, SEGA Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega System E Arcade emulator for Windows.

This release has several new and extensive features. Input latency in every emulator core has been reduced from 25-50ms down to 4ms in a worst case scenario. This offers a massive improvement in the FEEL of the emulator, giving you a better connection to what is being displayed. Also added was a way to fix the "input latency" that plagues NVIDIA and ATI hardware when VSYNC is enabled. RetroCopy now doesn´t use SDL, instead relying on it´s own asynchronous window and inputing engines to provide the best in performance and features.

With the emulation, VGM support was added and proper Dendy NES emulation has also been added and according to people with the real devices is the most accurate Dendy emulation available. The whole GUI has been reworked so that each system feels like it has its own place in RetroCopy. Control configuration now has visual controls you can click on to set input. Read below for full changes.

[MEGA DRIVE] Added busy emulation to YM2612 sound
[MEGA DRIVE] Added Menacer lightgun
[MEGA DRIVE] Removed CRAM dot emulation until more information is known about it. Fixes a few pixels being misplaced in a few games

[SMS] TH/TR writing wasn´t completely disabled for Mark III and Japanese SMS consoles
[SMS] Added new korean mapper for Janggun-ui Adeul. It features hardware byte flipping to do easy sprite flipping

[NES] Made PAL emulation more accurate through better PPU/CPU alignment
[NES] Improved read/write to $2007 emulation, fixes scrolling bug in Young Indiana Jones
[EMU] Input devices are no longer system specific but port specific. Allows any controllers with same port to be used on any system like real life. ie SMS Joypad on Megadrive
[EMU] Changed SMS Joypad, SMS Light Phaser, SMS Paddle, SMS Sports Pad, Megadrive 3 Button, MegaDrive 6 button controllers to DB-9/DE-9 pinouts
