Postby Reaver » Thu May 18, 2017 7:15 pm

*********************************************
* TeknoParrot 0.4 *
*********************************************
-- http://www.teknogods.com --
---------------------------------------------
Changes TeknoParrot 0.4:
- Preliminary support for Sega Sonic All-Stars Racing (disabled until more testing)
- Rewritten JVS emulator to support multi packages
- Wrote unit tests for many JVS packages and variations.
- Now all JVS I/O errors should be eliminated. (If you get package errors please contact me!)
- Keyboard remapper with saved keys
- Stability fixes in the emulator core
- Steering Wheels / Flight sticks are now identified to the joystick menu
- When you close DumbJvsManager from X it no longer stays in the background.
- Commandline mode for JVS only.
- Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code no longer crashes with certain characters.
NOTE: This was not because of the emulator but because of the differences between WinXP and newer windows.
---------------------------------------------
Changes TeknoParrot 0.3:
- Sega Racing Classic supported! (DO NOT ENABLE NETWORK OR IT WILL FREEZE FOREVER, missing network emu code)
- Test menu now works for all games. (YES this includes saving settings)
- Completely recoded DumbJvsBrain and now it's called DumbJvsManager
- Full UI interface and no more needing to use command line at all.
- Easy to setup joysticks from list, once saved they will be remembered.
- Keyboard support, only uses keyboard for that player that has "No joystick selected"
- com0com now get automatically set when user presses "Auto setup JVS emulation ports" (admin required)
- It even has button to test the jvs emulation ports.
- Added 3 unit tests for JVS emulator, more to come later
- Refactored all code and moved all common items to DumbsJvs.Common
- So if people can want to make own launchers it's easier to use only the dll. (DumbJvs.Common)
- Improved JVS emulation code a little bit.
- Games can now be directly set in the launcher and launched from the launcher easily. (Commandline coming later)
- Jvs emulation is only present when game is running, once game exists it also exists.
- Emulator now reroutes game COM4 to COM13 instead to avoid conflics.
- Emulator core improvements.
- Pressing ESC now quits the game.
---------------------------------------------

- Core fixes
