• PCE and PCE CD support

• Better user interface
• Other features

Use:
• File Menu

Here are the changes so far:
r14 Use thread for presenting frames, maybe faster, maybe not. Save State load button is probably broke, will work on input next. Today (6 hours ago)
r13 Lower resolution, yet snappier, font. Today (6 hours ago)
r12 Makefiles generate dependencies now Yesterday (20 hours ago)
r11 New cleaner Makefiles, read BUILDING NOTES.TXT for details. Split System Code from emulator code. New shot at font, less blurry, but slow. Yesterday (21 hours ago)
r10 One more Yesterday (21 hours ago)
r9 More maintenance, do not compile Yesterday (22 hours ago)
r8 Maintenance, do not compile. Yesterday (23 hours ago)
r7 Add new font. Oct 26 (2 days ago)
r6 Make File list larger and take up whole screen on wide screen displays. XMB no longer sluggish with list open. Add a quick note about building. Oct 26 (2 days ago)
r5 Add load new game item on R3 menu. Press Triangle in the browser to change your mind. Doesn't like to load more than one SMS or GG game in a session. Oct 25 (3 days ago)
r4 Hopefully fixes loading non-zipped files. Oct 25 (3 days ago)
r3 A few too many files. Oct 25 (3 days ago)
r2 [No log message] Oct 25 (3 days ago)

The only issue I've had with these ported over emulators so far is their inability to copy the files (roms) from a usb external HDD on to the internal HDD...

I'd love that kind of functionality, or at least a program that could do that, in a manner similar to the way Open Manager does it with game files...

I'm a personal fan of just leaving a 2gig or 4gig flash drive loaded with roms. Easier to navigate through and I can swap roms without having to FTP or hook up a harddrive.

To copy or move files you could always use Awesome FileManager which you can find HERE.
