Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.49nb1, Package name: nestopia-1.49nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Nestopia is a portable and cycle-accurate open-source Nintendo
Entertainment System/Famicom emulator designed to emulate the NES
hardware as accurately as possible.

This is Nestopia UE. Nestopia UE (Undead Edition) is a fork of the
original source code, with enhancements from members of the emulation
community. This includes support for new platforms, and bug fixes
in the emulator core.

Unofficial 1.41 - by Keith Kelly (c0d3h4x0r@hotmail.com) (March 29, 2010)
----------------------------------------------------------------

This is an unofficial maintenance release I created to fix an annoying joystick \ 
lag issue.
This lag was particularly bad when VSync was enabled.  The original Nestopia \ 
author (Martin
Freij) appears to have abandoned the official Nestopia project on SourceForge \ 
and has not
responded to any of my e-mails, so I am left with no choice but to provide this \ 
unofficial
release as a public service to the emulation community.

Changes:

1. Removed manual option to set priority of Nestopia's main emulation loop \ 
thread. Instead,
Nestopia now boosts its own process base priority AND its own main emulation \ 
thread priority
whenever it is the active foreground window (and/or running in full-screen \ 
mode). This brings
Nestopia much closer to real-time performance and responsiveness.

2. Removed some screwy input polling logic, and added some calls to \ 
input.Poll(), to ensure
that the input devices are always polled immediately before the input state is \ 
utilized.
This was the key change that got rid of most of the lag.

3. Removed some screwy input timing logic that was causing input polling to work \ 
only on
certain clock intervals, rather than allowing it to work every time it was called.

(As far as I can tell on my own hardware configuration, these three changes \ 
taken together
have completely eliminated the lag problems that have been present in Nestopia \ 
for several
releases.  Your mileage may vary.)

4. Updated the Visual Studio solution/project to build successfully under Visual \ 
C++ 2008
Express Edition.

5. Added this releasenotes.txt file and bumped the version number to 1.41.
