FBANext PS3 SVN r423 Changelog:

WHAT'S NEW:

  • Core - updated fm.c fmopl.c with to match latest mame.
  • PS3 - added triple buffer option (check options to toggle). Triple buffering
    will be stored in xml

CUSTOM CHANGES:

  • A much faster graphics driver - try CPS3 and CPS2 games and feel and see the difference in terms of speed. Most of the input lag noticed by experienced arcade players should be mostly gone now.
  • Triple-buffering is hardforced to be enabled by default - together with the new graphics driver makes the framerate very fast.
  • Sysutil OSD is used for some parts of the In-Game menu, such as saving a savestate, saving a button preset, or generating a clrmame.dat file, and so on.

Changelog for Custom r423:

  • New input code
  • HD shaders – as with SNES9x PS3, 4xSoft-HD looks the best

Included is a diff patch intended for Lantus – so these changes can be carried over into mainline FBA.

Following up on the recent PS3 RetroArch v0.9.8 release, today PlayStation 3 developer CaptainCPS-X has made available a FB Alpha RL (Retro Loader) v1.00 for PS3 CFW 3.40 / 4.XX users with details below.

To quote: Hiyas everyone, today I come with something that I've been working for the last few days, please read the documentation before using it, I know that some people don't usually like to read, but please take a minute to read and see what FB Alpha RL offers.

Note: I verified the problems with emulation of CPS-1, and it seems it is only happening on libretro port, not on the Windows official release of FB Alpha. I tried to see if I could find the issue, but I couldn't identify it.

Information:

As a dev from the official FB Alpha Team, FB Alpha RL was made with a objective in mind, to keep the original experience from the official FB Alpha (for Windows OS) on the PS3 system.

Even when I don't know how to implement a fancy GUI for the PS3 system with textures and all the complicated stuff, I managed to use my previous application core (gamePKG core) to create this nice frontend for RetroArch's FB Alpha core.

I know that RetroArch is already a frontend, but I like to keep things simple and straight to the point.

Please, read the technical info for more details.

Technical Info:

Signed for CFW 3.40 / 4.XX (should work for everyone). Tested at 1080p resolution via HDMI.

FB Alpha RL uses a custom "burn_drivers.h" header file that was generated by modifying the official windows version of FB Alpha with a routine to generate such file on launch.

The header have a big structure with all the information for all supported drivers in FB Alpha v0.2.97.28. Information such as:

  • Romset Name (Ex. kof2002)
  • Parent ROM (Ex. sf2)
  • Year
  • Manufacturer (Ex. Capcom)
  • System (Ex. Neo Geo)
  • Max players
  • Game Screen Resolution
  • Game Screen Aspect Ratio

Future release will have a custom generated header with all the ROM information as well, so the application will be able to verify every romset with precise CRC32 checks (as in the official FB Alpha for Windows).

FB Alpha RL will scan the following directories for ZIP files:

Specific directories:

/dev_hdd0/game/ROMS00000/USRDIR
/dev_hdd0/game/ROMS00000/USRDIR/fba
/dev_hdd0/game/SSNE10000/USRDIR/cores/roms

Generic directories:

/dev_*/roms
/dev_*/roms/fba

Devices scanned are:

dev_hdd0 (PS3 Internal HDD)
dev_usb000 (External USB)
dev_usb001 (External USB)
dev_usb002 (External USB)
dev_usb003 (External USB)
dev_cf (Compact Flash)
dev_sd (SD Card)
dev_ms (Memory Stick)

NOTE: You don't need the official RetroArch installed, this already has my own modified build incorporated into FB Alpha RL installation directory. So you can safely install the official RetroArch and it won't interfere.

Usage:

  • Use UP and DOWN to select Games.
  • Press (X) to Load the selected Game.
  • Press (O) to Quit and return to XMB.
  • Press [SELECT] to Load "RetroArch" (FB Alpha Core).

Features:

  • Auto configure screen Aspect Ratio on game load.
  • Quick ROM(s) scanning in extensive path locations.
  • Romset validation against FB Alpha v0.2.97.28 drivers library.
  • Checking for duplicate ROM(s).
  • Detailed info about listed ROM(s).
  • Full game name display for easier navigation.
  • Direct loading of ROM(s).
  • Simple GUI & nice application logos(LMAO xD).

WIP / Coming on future releases:

  • Set System Input preset on Game Load (Ex. NeoGeo.cfg / Shooters.cfg / etc).
  • Simple Input Mapping feature.
  • Display Extended ROM information by pressing (/\).

Changelog:

  • 1.00 (January 30, 2013) Initial Release

Thanks to:

[*]My buddies Treble Winner (Barry) / Kev / IQ_132 from the original FB Alpha Team

What version of fbanext do you have? I think mine is version r492 & all metal slug games, so far, have been working just fine. Since these are neo-geo games, make sure you have the right neo-geobios.zip (1.3+ mb ver.) placed in the same folder as your metal slug games. Or you can download the newer retroarch 0.9.7 emulator since neo-geo games runs well on them too.
