  • Basic XBAND keyboard emulation
  • Configurable display overscan
  • Fullscreen mode can now be toggled at runtime
  • Window can now be resized at runtime
  • Support for "semantic" controller button names in the gamepad mapping using SDL2's game controller API

  • System soft reset
  • Keyboard can now be captured when a Saturn or XBAND keyboard is connected to the emulated system
  • Internal screenshots that bypass all output filtering/overscan
  • Homebrew using the "SSF2 Mapper" is now supported via header detection like on the Mega Everdrive
  • Directory used for SRAM, EEPROM and savestates is now configurable
  • Path configuration values can now contain both BlastEm-specific and environment variable references
  • Open GL based rendering can be disabled in favor of the SDL2 render API fallback
  • Fixed a bug that would cause a crash in certain games that have SRAM and ROM at the same address
  • Fixed some issues with Z80 interrupts that caused issues with sound/music in Sonic 2 and Puyo Puyo 2
  • Z80 debugger no longer crashes when resuming execution
  • Undocumented Z80 instruction "out (c), 0" now decodes properly
  • GDB remote debugging should now work with more recent versions of GDB
  • GDB remote debugging should now work on more recent versions of Windows
  • Overlapping instructions in self-modifying code no longer causes incorrect behavior
  • Z80 instructions "in c" and "out c" now work correclty on 32-bit builds
  • Specifying an output audio frequency higher than the FM frequency no longer deadlocks the emulator
  • Fixed memory map generation for games with 3MB ROM and SRAM at the 3MB mark

  • The timing of serveral other 68K instructions has been fixed
  • Implemented 68K trace mode
  • SBCD flag calculation now matches hardware in 100% of cases
  • 68K -> VDP DMA now properly has a delay at DMA start rather than at the end of the transfer
  • A number of illegal effective address mode/operation combinations now properly decode as illegal instructions
  • Added emulation of the slow rise time of an IO pin that was changed to an input when it was previously outputting 0
  • Partial support for the VDP test register
  • Partial support for the 128KB VRAM mode bit
  • Improved accuracy of low level sprite rendering details
  • Fixed handling of active/passive display transitions so that border extension tricks work
  • Fixed handling of horizontal interrupts in extended display areas
  • More accurate correspondance between horizontal counter and raster beam
  • Partial emulation of serial IO registers
