:bow: The long awaited Magic Engine is finally out !!!! :bounce:

2004-11-19

Here it is : MagicEngine 1.0!

This is only a preview version though. ^^;
We tried hard to finish everything in time and up to the last few days we thought it would be possible but this didn't work out, too many details to fix popped up at the last second (Windows can be a pain to program sometimes...). It was very close though, we expect that version 1.0 will be finished in about 1-2 weeks, meanwhile you can enjoy this preview version. :) It has almost all the features of the final version, there is just a few missing options, and not everything can be controlled from the GUI yet. There's no manual too, so if you encounter a problem post a message in the forums or write us an e-mail, we will try to reply you as soon as possible.

We are waiting your comments and bug reports now (please not too many bug reports :p). This version is a big jump forward, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Have fun!

If you are a registered user you just need to download the new demo version and install it over your registered version, or if you prefer you can install it in a new directory too, in this case just copy your key file (pce.key) in the directory of the new version too. If you don't have have your key file anymore just send us an e-mail with your registration details to get the key again.

Only the PC version is available for now, the Mac OSX version will be released a bit later. More news soon.
Get your copy now ;)

MagicEngine v1.0.0 PR 2 released

2004-11-20

New preview version available, MagicEngine 1.0 PR 2.

Here it is what's new :

new CD-DA code: faster and better synchro. In case the default settings don't work for you there are three new options in the pce.ini file to control how are managed the CD-DA buffers. The more important option is the buffer size, the higher the slower, the default is 2 now, it was 20 in PR 1.
added a vsync option, with a special mode for windowed mode.
cleaned up the gamepad code and added additionnal debugging infos to the log.txt file.
the ROM path is now saved when you exit.
added two options to disable the FPS counter and the PSG volume meter.
enabled the turbo option.
temporary fix for the boot CD menu bug. Only one drive is listed now even when you have more than one, the one listed will be the first drive that has a PC-Engine CD loaded, if you change it it will change in the menu too. I couldn't test this feature though, so let me know how well it works.
Enjoy!
