I think it's about time that the RPCEmu changes I have been working on
are freed from my the confines of hard drive ;-)
The main additions to the Subversion version are:
- Support for networking
- Working dynarec
- Cocoa GUI
- Application bundle (i.e. it comes as RPCEmu.app which is a normal
OS X application)
Note that it is still very much a work in progress and has plenty of
known bugs. For example, it crashes every time you quit it! Also, it
does not work on Snow Leopard 10.6.1 - it runs but mouse input is
If you would like to give it a try you can download it from http://www.devrx.org/software/rpcemu/rpcemu-fjd-20090929.tar.gz
. To install, untar it by double clicking on rpcemu-
fjd-20090929.tar.gz and then move RPCEmu.app into /Applications (or
wherever you want to keep it).
It has only been tested on OS X Leopard 10.5.8. rpcemu-
fjd-20090929.tar.gz includes source and an Intel binary, although it
is possible to compile a PowerPC version from source.
The first time you run it will prompt you for a data directory. This
is the directory that contains rpc.cfg, roms, hostfs and hard disc
files. You can either choose an existing directory or choose an empty
directory (~/Library/Application Support/RPCEmu by default) which
RPCEmu will set up by copying the ROM file you choose to it.
For more details, including instructions on how to set up networking,
I'm be happy to help with getting these changes into Subversion and/or
the Spoon Edition. The source code in rpcemu-fjd-20090929.tar.gz is
based on Subversion r168.
