Contest: pspadrive
« on: March 20, 2006, 01:59:07 AM »
Description:

pspadrive Release 1!
=====================

pspadrive is a highly customised port of the genesis/megadrive emulator genesisplus to
the psp. The eventual goal is full 60fps emulation by rewriting parts of the emulator in
assembler.

Features:
 - Support for Genesis/megadrive, High compatablity.
 - zip support
 - Correct ratio'd graphics, hardware accelerated renderer
 - Some asm code to speed things up
 - built in game select screen

Missing
 - Sound
 - More complete GUI
 - Lots more asm optimisations
 - Save states
 - Cheat codes
 - mappable controls



Installation:
=============
For 1.0 firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Copy the contents of the 1.0 folder to your psps memory
stick.
This should give you a /PSP/GAME/pspadrive folder on your memory stick.
Copy your megadrive and genesis roms to your memory stick.
pspadrive has a file browser so you can copy the roms anywhere.
Personally I prefer to put them in the /GAME/PSP/pspadrive/roms/ folder.
Your roms can either be in .smd/.bin/.md/.zip format.
.zip is recommended as it takes less space.


For 1.5 firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Copy the contents of the 1.0 folder to your psps memory
stick.
This should give you a /PSP/GAME/pspadrive folder and a /PSP/GAME/pspadrive% folder on
your memory stick.
Copy your megadrive and genesis roms to your memory stick.
pspadrive has a file browser so you can copy the roms anywhere.
Personally I prefer to put them in the /GAME/PSP/pspadrive/roms/ folder.
Your roms can either be in .smd/.bin/.md/.zip format.
.zip is recommended as it takes less space.


For other firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Currently I have been unable to test on any other firmwares
but if you have a psp that is supported by eboot loader
then please test this emulator with it and email me any problems etc
to: codeport@blueyonder.co.uk


Controls:
=========

Filebrowser:
-=-=-=-=-=-=
Currently the file broweser is quite basic. Use the d-pad to move up and down, and the X button to select a file or folder.
Selecting ".." will make the filebrowser go back to the parent folder.

In-game:
-=-=-=-=

D-pad: MD/genesis d-pad
Square button: MD/genesis 'A' button
O button: MD/genesis 'B' button
start: MD/genesis start button
Left Shoulder button: In-game gui.
Currently exit rom option only but this will change in the next version of pspadrive.

Contact me:
===========
Email: codeport@blueyonder.co.uk

I am looking for webspace for my psp releases,
as well as a graphic artist to help with gui design.
If you can help, please email me!

PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR ROMS AS I CANNOT HELP YOU!


Thanks

   -HamsterBert.

My feeling :

1) Port ARE allowed
2) Fast ports that aren't complete are easy to do with really few
3) Those emulators already exist in a FAR better way (either 100% new or really improved port)

> I won't give a lot of point.

Now, I'm just one of the judge so...
