After a long time without news, the impressive Nintendo 64 emulator SixtyForce has been updated to version 0.5.6b1 after a rewrite of the codebase. The author Gerrit Goossen explains his long absence and changes to the program here:
What can I say -- it's been a busy summer... I took a theater class. Then ended up with a part in a community theater production and spent long nights rehearsing and performing. This is in addition to coding a shiny new project that is unlike anything I've ever done before.This is truly an impressive feat, so be sure to download SixtyForce and give it a whirl. Also take a peek at the compatibility page for more info on which ROMs work well with the program. Remeber, you can only use ROMs for N64 cartridges that you actuall own, and do not expect 100% compatibility with any commercial title.
SixtyForce 0.5.6b1 (170k)
And in between I found time to rewrite sixtyforce's emulation from the ground up to be a true dynamic recompiler.
So instead of making you wait while I catch my breath, today I'm releasing a 'mostly complete' beta version of sixtyforce 0.5.6 featuring the new dynamic recompiling core. I believe this the first dynamic recompiling emulator that has ever been made available for free on the Macintosh.
i'm too good to you.
Along with the new version, today i'm proud to announce that, i'm giving one of sixtyforce's biggest fans, Dave [aka. wackyracer], space on the official sixtyforce website for his sixtyforce compatibility list. This is the list to check to find out what does and doesn't work with sixtyforce. Many thanks to Dave all the time he's spent working on it.
