Resurrecting Nuance

I found your SourceForge page several days ago, and was *very* excited to see that you picked this back up and had made sure good progress! I'm getting started with developing for Nuon, and this could prove to be *very* helpful for me, so that I don't have to burn a CD for testing each and every build.

Toxie is awesome for picking this project back up. Please keep up on this as it is the key to NUON development. Without a proper emulator you would have to burn a disc to real hardware to test anything. Getting a NUON emulator is of primary importance. Has anyone contacted the NUON chip creators on this stuff? I hope I am not the one that has to do that but I will....

Odd - why did my attachment not work? I am trying to post a 1.8MB ZIP file, but it will not work for me.
Attachments sizes were quite limited on the server configuration. I've adjusted this so it should work now.

You may change this now in User CP
I actually missed it so far. ;)
But will give it a try, thanks!

Also, new (minor) update of Nuance, 0.6.1: https://sourceforge.net/projects/nuance-nuon-emulator/files/latest/download

Still working on getting multi-threading to work properly (although all games are working fast enough by now on my modern-but-rather-cheap-laptop), and also to finally fix this darn sound/timing issue which is causing T3K to hang. :/

I don't know if the emu doesn't run full speed yet or if my laptop is just too shitty (very likely) but I went ahead and tested some retail games and homebrew

Hopefully somebody will dump the Tetris game and the Korean-only Shinchan Crayon game, it is a bit interesting as it requires a korean samsung nuon bios to start, so the emu would come in use in that case cause those are not exactly easy to find, but first we need a dump of the actual bios to do anything.

Keep up the good work Toxie.

I am so glad that this is project is still going. I hope some people at the Emulation Reddit get into to it as well - even the Konix Multisystem, one of the rarest of the rare has an emulator. The NUON needs a good Emulator. This is a testament to the late Mike Perry - the original NUANCE author - RIP.

Stuck in the Tempest

I tried playing around with the audio related crash with Tempest 3000. Reducing the number of audio interrupts (at a cost of having glacial distorted audio) to maybe a third of what they are now did eliminate the crash. If I limit the rate of audio interrupts to not be more often than the expected audio playback rate would allow, I still experience the crash in exactly the same way. So, I don't think this has anything to do with buffering.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
