Saint v1.70

July 19, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image According to Leonard, here are the new features of the emulator:

* MFP emulation core totally re-written ! Now support cycle accurate reading ( Overscan Demos by Paulo Simoes )
* "Line disabling" technic emulated ( Overscan demos by Paulo Simoes )
* "StopLine" fixed ( B.I.G demo by TEX low border fixed )
* Fixed STE DAC monos sound bug (quality improved !, try BrainDamage Demo sound!)
* SainT does not take 99% of CPU when running in background in windowed mode.
* Fixed cycle timing when reading in FC00 ( thanks to Paulo Simoes )
* Low border adds now 45 graphics lines instead of 43


We have tested the Overscan Demos, they work fine! Also the music of Braindamage sounds very good, despite of some issues with the display.

Go to Leonard website to get SainT v1.70.

DragonFlight is here!

July 16, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image DragonFlight is a mythic game made by Thalion (the first one!). Until today, it was unplayable with emulator because of the protection used. Also it has never been cracked, so only the lucky owner of the original game could play it.

The game has been finally published on Thalion group! This version has been redone by Udo Fischer, the main coder of the game, also known under the nickname of -me- into the famous crew The EXceptions. Thanks to him! Only both intros seems to be missing (the one with the Thalion logo, and the other with the red dragon). All other parts of the game are here.
DragonFlight now works with Steem 3.1 and 2MB of RAM. Use following instruction to run the game:

How to play this version with Steem:
- install Steem V3.1 or higher (if available)
- use a TOS version 1.04 or higher
- select at least 2 MB memory!
- select colour monitor
- unzip the file to a folder of your name
- mount this folder as drive E: inside of Steem
- select DRAGON_D.PRG (deutsch/german), DRAGON_E.PRG (english) or DRAGON_F.PRG (francais/french) to start playing


. Download [url=../newsattach/Dragonflight]DragonFlight for Steem 3.1[/url] (may work with a real machine).
. Visit Thalion webshrine for more information about the game.
. Discuss on the forum about installation issues and various topics.

The best part of this game is its fantastic 2 player mode. I’ve had hours of fun as a kid playing this with friends. Both players play simultaneously, but the camera only follows player one. This can be a pain in the ass sometimes, especially with the flip screen, but playing as a team has never been more fun.
