Another GBA emulator coming up, and it certainly looks interesting. I'm talking about <a href="http://www.goldroad.co.uk/" TARGET="_blank">foolsGBA</a>, an emulator by foolsgold which is the first gba emu using <b>dynamic recompilation</b>. It is still unoptimized/unfinished though, meaning that you won't always see a clear speed difference yet. However, when it <i>will</i> be optimized... :) A couple of words from the author himself:<ul>This is a small preview release just to show what I've been up to. Its quite buggy and thumb has a bad bug in the long branch instruction. Plus, the emulator usually<br>crashes when quitting after the dynarec has been used. Anyway, this is just to show the speed gains I'm getting of recompiling just a small part of the instruction set. The whole emulator is unoptimised...so don't judge it against other emulators, just against itself in interpretative and dynarec modes. Sometimes it makes little effect,<br>some times the effect is enourmous. Rotozoomer has probably the most striking speed gain. As the dynarec become more advanced and optimised, I expect all programs to benefit substantially.</ul>Okay, so it isn't really new.. still worth mentioning though, and I'll put up a section for it soon. Now why did I have to think about the LS&2SB soundtrack while I posted this... ;) Ahrem, anyway, you can download foolsGBA v0.1 preview right <a href="http://www.ngemu.com/download/pafiledb.php?action=viewfile&fid=128&id=14">here</a>. Thanks to <a href="http://www.emuhelp.com" TARGET="_blank">EmuHelp</a> for the news!
