Video: SSNES Multi-System Emulator Port for PS3 is Now Available

550°
148w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developers opium2k, Themaister and Squarepusher2 have made available a PS3 port of SSNES (manual reader shader), which is a multi-system emulator for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and BSD with roots as a SNES emulator.

To quote: Due to be released within the next day or two is version 0.9.5 of SSNES as well as the initial release of the PS3 and 360 ports. SSNES is a multi-platform, multi-system emulator with ports being worked on for PC, OSX, PS3, 360 and a few more I believe.

As I said, it's a multi-system emulator. Don't let the name fool you, it's not just for SNES games! It currently supports games from systems such as NES, SNES, GB, GBC, GBA, SMS, GG, Genesis & FBA using selectable cores from various emulators to ensure the best compatibility, accuracy and performance for the end user.

To demonstrate the capabilities of SSNES and more specifically maister's manual reader shader I've been working on some implementations for the past couple months to show off just a taste of some of this shader's uses.

Here are some screenshots showing some of the uses on roms for the systems that SSNES currently supports:

Sony's sceKermit Driver Surfaces via PSP Emulator on PS Vita

1000°
148w ago - Following up on his previous PS Vita developments, today PlayStation Vita hacker Davee reports that he has discovered Sony's sceKermit driver which is a communication interface for the included PSP emulator.

To quote from his blog (linked above): "Turns out he's not just a green frog! So, I've been throwing this word around recently and it's probably about time I explain. Kermit, either a protocol or perhaps a funny name (see KIRK/SPOCK) is a communication interface for the PSP emu. Specifically it allows the PSP to talk to the host.

Now, I can tell there aren't as many developers here, so I'll try to simplify for the curious minds but this stuff is pretty complicated. I'll only explain the API in detail as the lower level still need a little bit of clearing up, but here goes.

Ok, Kermit is here so that the emu can communicate to the host to share resources and other vitality. Perhaps the primary reason is that of hardware; the PSP emu is excluded from many hardware devices. So kermit sets in and allows the system to talk to the vita in order to use the hardware. Blabbering aside, this is the hardware that kermit seems to be responsible for:

  • Memory...
