Another E-UAE PS3 update from MickJT: [Register or Login to view links]

Dreedo, on my port, the Enter option doesn't seem to do a thing. Anyway, I think I know why the LEDs aren't working... I think they actually are working, but overscan is getting in the way. I did some more comparisons and it looks like overscan has been compensated for in Ole's 0.8.25 build.

Made a new build. About to test it.

Edit: Confirmed.

Thanks to Ole for the port of 0.8.25.

(18th Feb) New build. Clean up of source. Source released.

Not patched to work on NTSC systems.. can be done later.

Below is E-UAE v0.8.29 R3 PS3 update with source code from MickJT also:
This one has the ability to use the left analog stick as the joystick.

I note there's not been much discussion of what the differences are between this branch and Ole's 0.8.25.

This one has multiple savestates, analog stick as joystick, twin mouse support and better compatibility with 0.8.29-20070726 as the base instead of 0.8.25-20040302.. and it works on American consoles.

The path on the HDD is EUAE00829 for this.

Put your games (adf files) on a usb key plug it into usb port two, load the emulator and press start then highlight floppy one and press x then just browse for your game and press start to exit the options menu, the game should load.

I too have an old C-64 collecting dust along side 500+ games and programs in Floppy format and 2 cartridge games with a printer 12 other floppy disc drives, two super action controllers, 2 mice, 6 fast load cartridges, and loads of cables and books. so I know how you feel.

I should probably use this emulator instead, seeing as how the old RF adapter it uses to connect a TV to commodore would look atrocious on a HDTV. Can't wait to play some classic games!

I love the idea of bringing retro PC games to PS3 and can only say is LOAD "*",8,1 and, "Stay a while, Stay Forever, Ha ha ha " -Impossible Mission ..only on Commodore, and PS3 Homebrew emulators!!

Wow and there's me thinking it's only me, that loved my Amiga's.

Now I have to go looking for the Dance/trance Demo's that came out back then, them things had me mesmerized.
