no more WIP teasers....this is the real thing......Satunin 0.30 has been released for the people who still have Saturn CDs in non-snapped-in-half condition :p Here's a little statement that was posted on the Saturnin homepage:
  • Hi everyone !

    Here's my present for Christmas : a brand new Saturnin release, able to play Saturn games :D

    Everything is far from being perfect, speed is still an issue, and crashes can happen sometimes during some games. A list of problematics games is available in the help file bundled with the emulator ...
    As always, read the help file fully before emailing me or writing for info in the forums ... your answers might already be there :p
    If you can't find a specific answer about your problem, there's a FAQ thread in the forums that can be updated with your input ;)

    One last thing : translations are a lot easier now that I have switched to plain text files instead of dlls ... so if you're interested in translating Saturnin in your own language, send me back your str file (the english version is bundled with the emulator in the langage directory).
    I'll add your contribution to the download thread in the forums ;)
    So far english and french are done, and bulgarian is on the way.

    So that's it for now :)

    Merry Christmas to everyone !
