|Hier https://github.com/JayFoxRox/Lindbergh-Emulator arbeitet jemand an einem Sega Lindbergh-Emulator.
Das Originalsystem basiert auf Linux und einem P4-PC mit Nvidia-Grafik. HLE auf einem aktuellen Linux-PC ist daher naheliegend.
A Sega Lindbergh environment / HLE for Linux
A lot of the files are still not public yet.
This was once planned to be a commercial emulator. I have to make sure those who worked on it are protected. The emulator code was written entirely by me, Jannik Vogel. However, parts of Lindbergh were cracked and reverse engineered by others who shall not be named. This emulator is also based on Sega and Creative includes which I can not share yet.
The emulator will probably be released and improved in parts over the next couple of months.
The old attempt at lindbergh emulation which got less and less stable over time as it had to hook various functions
The emulated lindbergh filesystem
Lindbergh Libraries (Preloaded path)
The fuse filesystem emulation
The preload library
Emulation of lindbergh device files
- fusefslog.c / fusefslog.h
Log entries for the fuse filesystem
Sets API version for fuse.h and defines structure for the private_data of fuse
Main entrance point for the emulator library where I hook the staticly linked functions for JVS and the dongle
- io.c / io.h
IO Emulation and SIGSEGV handling
Some functions from common GL Extensions accross Lindbergh games
A quick linker wrapper for dynamicly loading functions
A x86 ucontext union for easier access
- Later-1: Run a fuse-fs which mirrors the root but adds custom lindbergh fs entries. These FS entries are emulated by the filesystem emulator directly
- NVIDIA graphics card
- Later-?: /dev/lbb Baseboard
- If necessary: /dev/tts/0 COM-Port (I have seen /dev/ttyS0 instead before)
- If necessary: /dev/tts/1 COM-Port (I have seen /dev/ttyS1 instead before)
- /dev/i2c/0 EEPROM (Interpreted (100% of captured traffic known, implemented as in chip datasheet) and file backed)
- If necessary, only fake necessary parts: /dev/hda ATA-device
- If necessary, only fake existence: /etc/creative/* Creative soundcard files
- If necessary, only fake existence: /dev/emu10kxSoundcard
- If necessary, only fake existence: /dev/emupia Soundcard
- If necessary, only fake necessary parts: /proc/bus/pci/00/1f.0 This might be the graphics card - can't remember (//Edit: This seems to be the LPC?!)
- Hide /dev/js* (some games might want debug input, so it would get the same input via js and emulated JVS (using the same js))
- Run a preloaded bash (possibly in a chroot?) which then hooks:
- amJvs and amDongle functions + anything else which talks to the baseboard for now
- signal functions, exit if the app calls these. Later I should make sure that the original function is called after mine if there was nothing to emulate
- iopl (Block any hardware access and install a signal handler instead!)
- GLUT: so we can run windowed
- GLX to provide unsupported NVIDIA extensions
- Later-2: GLX so we have full control over opengl
- Also preload the custom SEGAAPI-lib.
- Later-3: preload library: everytime the game wants to change that make sure we get the signal first
- In the signal handler wait for in/out instructions and emulate them
- Later-4: Drop amJvs and amDongle emulation and move to fuse
- Later-5: Replace fuse-fs with hooks
