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.
To quote: Let's call it beta (SPU emulation). Tested with my own elf a lot commands if they work properly. Disabled buttons depending on state.
And last but not least, if you press run a new thread is spawned. Now you are able to press pause and it stops the run ofc. The performance get a super boost with the threading.
Project Update: alpha2 - pre alpha so it is not in pre alpha stage anymore. It detects code modifications on the fly too. The new feature list is not complete that's my fault I guess.
Thanks for the news update. I need some infos from some reversers to create the next stunning feature:
Crypto dumping... dumps all crypto calls... Let's call it function parameter dumping cause it will work for everything and will implement a callback on known functions which will make dumping at certain calls possible.
To quote: SPU Emulation Alpha2 has been released: mBox implemented and MFC prepared, bugfixes, breakpoints implemented and all commands for metldr as far as KDSBest knows.
I wanted to contribute to the scene, so I coded a tool that might help the community our members and fellow dev's. This Tool is intended for dev's so please be careful if you don't know what you do. I will not be held responsible for any harm.
My tool is a emulator for PS3 modules (e.g metldr), it is in pre alpha stage but I thought, it would be great to get some community feedback.
How to use:
Not all SPU Commands are implemented yet, but it is easily extendable and I will make it support DMA, all SPU Commands and SPU Mailbox soon.
First open a .kds file. Check out the metldr.kds to see an example....
