Ressurectionxtras And Compatibility Lists
Posted 30 December 2008 - 06:34 AM
I'm procrastinating now. I'm working on Gameboy and it's going to take me a few weeks/months I'm afraid. I saved the biggest and toughest job for testing for last (at least as far as the most popular systems go).
I've got about 400 games tested and the titleshots and action shots for them too. Just about 300 more for Gameboy.... then about 600 for gameboy color, and another 1000 for gameboy advance..........

I have all the screens from the gamebase. Do they have to be named 0001.png? and in a folder.
Is there some way to batch convert ?

Unfortunately, you need to have the set converted first before it works. I don't know if I'll ever get around to the Atari ST though, so that one might be left undone until somebody else works on it. I've got a lot of other emulators to complete right now and it's not even on my radar. Hopefully somebody reads this that grabbed madmabs old version of this that isn't available anymore

I know you said you had some cart art for Gameboy.... do you know where I can find full GBC and Gameboy boxart sets? I don't need GBA boxart. I'm about halfway done with GBC testing now.

I have a pack of GB/GBC snaps-titles-and box art. It has about 250 GB and 250 GBC boxes (that aren't duplicates of themselves.) I got it from a usual place, and you probably already have it.
Nice work on the testing! You are getting through it surprisingly fast (due to your dedication )
EDIT: Oh, also my personal collection of 250 (go figure) GBC box scans that I hand picked from moby games.

Yeah.... testing is going pretty fast. A lot of GBC games seem to run just a little slow, and about 20 of them flicker if there is too many sprites on the screen. I'm wondering if there is a way around that. Overall though GBC is pretty good compatibility wise. I did a lot of the setup before so it was just a matter of running through them now. I've finished my first run through them, so I have about 100 or so to still go through.
Then it's on to the GBA which has a crazy amount of 1,000 or so games. That will probably take at least two weekends by itself.

I just checked the "pack" and the box art doesn't have very good quality , but all my stuff is good.
I got every cart "mobygames" had for GB and GBC (pretty sure). I stopped around "T" for GBA. I also got things from other places, including Ebay and then edited many, (cropping for shape and fixing color /contrast on ones that made them look better) in my collection.

I pretty much have GB and GBC done now as far as testing goes. Got a titleshot and action shot for all of them along the way too. Tons of work left on the artwork though. I should have an idea of how many videos need to be made in the near future.
I want us to focus on just the headline info in the synopsis for now. The text information can come later. I have some great ideas of what we can do with sorting, but it won't work until we have a basic synopsis that's similar to what we have for MAME emulators now. We'll save the rest of the text stuff for last. I'll figure out how it should go from here out in a few days and post it on the synopsis thread. Don't undo any of the work you've already done though. I will add any full synopsis stuff that somebody already did.

I am really interested in having a look at those lists, but it seems that you must have a Google account to look at them, no matter which system I click, I am asked to log into a Google account or to create one.
Is there a way to avoid this, I don't want a Google account just for looking at those emulator lists and also otherwise am not interested in having such an account?

Rx, has not given access to the "SG-1000-MasterSystem/GameGear" and some of the "Other Emulators" .
(Rx, you probably just over looked the option on those.)
Althena, try any others, I am sure they will work, and Rx will fix the ones that don't soon.

Just thought I'd let you know I've been using the new GBA beta and Gilles dynamic skin for testing and it works great. The only lock ups I get are due to the roms themselves being bad, I believe. Nothing acting funny or buggy with either the emu or the skin from what I can tell. I'm not testing synopsis, document viewing, rewind right now, but as far as navigating through the menus and selecting games, taking screenshots and saving/loading games everything seems to be working just fine.
Great job guys!
BTW Gilles, I did not experience any problems at all porting my personally saved configuration from emu to emu and starting it right up. We did it! It works just like I wanted it to now.
I've basically finished testing and collecting action/title screenshots for GB and GBC now. I've also done the same for 200-300 GBA games. Who knows how many I'll actually get to before I quit for the night. It's going better than I thought... I'm really spending a lot more time on it than I thought I would... but I have taken breaks and played a few of the GBA games. Some of them are really great. Nice to see some games I'd actually want to play after the tedium of testing GB and GBC with about 95% of the library something I probably would not play with all the other games and systems we have out there.
I've got a 4 day weekend coming up and I hope to wrap up the artwork and testing for all of Gameboy then. This is really exciting because (minus arcade games) this marks the last major emu that needed to be tested and it is also by far the emu with the largest library.
Just need more help with videos while I wrap that up and get to work on manuals and synopsis collecting.
HELP US MAKE SOME VIDEOS!!!!!!!!!
