78w ago - While it hasn't been long since his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer KDSBest has updated the PS3 SPU Emulation Module to version 0.8.1, which allows x86 PCs to emulate the SPU.
Below are some related Tweets on the update via Twitter (linked above), as follows:
New spu emu soon dump function calls and channel access and so on.. btw no spu stuff just optimised code
Crypto function instructions implemented, aim_spu_module runs fine (v0.8).
Thanks to my tester we found a heavy bug which made the aim not run correctly. Fixing it.
I still got a problem with one instruction, the problem is idk what instruction, but aim decrypts the eid0 section fine with spu emu (v0.8.1).
