This is a buggy alpha version

Fixed bugs
* Less crashes when using compressed roms

New Features
* Rewrote the Background Tile update system, so now it delays changes to the nametables until the next frame, so that the graphics synchronized properly. No more disappearing ? blocks in Super Mario Bros. (Punchout and 4-screen mirroring is currently broken)

* Games run much faster in this version
* Replaced some memory filling/copying loops with faster multi-register writing code
* Very heavy optimizations to PPU status reads, almost makes PPU hack unnecessary
* Now stores fixed PRG bank inside Fast Video RAM instead of slow cartridge slot, huge speedups for this reason

What's broken:
* PPU Hack does nothing right now
* PUNCHOUT is broken
* TQROM and Mapper 74 are broken
* 4 screen mirroring is broken
* Savestates are buggy
* Don't try to use the cheat finder right now.

Internal changes which only make sense if you're the developer
* Moved some code out of IWRAM, including the multiplayer link code. (it's still there, just no longer wasting fast memory)
* Different timeout system

    Plus it could be an entirely separate fuse blow on the lcd controller board so hard to tell unless you really want to invest time and making constant small purchases
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I just want to tile my wall with all the old monitors my company keeps throwing out and plug them to a single video source.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You can connect any screen panel to any mobo but you need a signal converter.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And that's too much work for me.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    A tv should be an easy fix as long it's not physical display damage
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Yeah that's why people are like fuck it and spend another $350 on new tvs or monitors lol
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    It's an easy fix but it's the headache of actually figuring out what's wrong
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    flatpanel tv's cost significantly less than they used to, and they keep getting bigger and better
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Well probably see $5k 8k models by 2025
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Get your $800 8k capable ps6 and your $5,000 8k compatible TV today!
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    I had wanted a sony bravia xr i saw last , still at $>7k
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I've seen 50" oleds floating around for $800 but for a main TV oled still doesn't sound that good cause burn ins
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    led have much more heat i suppose if they can cause burn in, or is the fragile parts used to make them on purpose
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Isn't lcd different from led
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Or oled more burn in prone to qled
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    the newer led variation are just much smaller
  • Veho @ Veho:
    LCD is different from LED and OLED.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    LCD/TFT don't emit light on their own, they just filter color they have to have a backlight. LED/OLED panels emit light.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Backlight can be one giant light panel with a diffusor, but recently there's mini/micro LED backlighting, where you can control the light level for smaller areas of the screen, to get better contrast and color range.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    yeah, lots of lcd panel tech usually have the dead backlight issue making owners think it's completely dead
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And those backlights can get burn-in themselves.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    i fixed my previous tv twice already, 1st time was power supply defect and 2nd was dead backlight, just ordered some parts after butchering it open
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    so easy compared to the time i had to work on my sony trinitron, gud times :rofl2:
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    It's just weird that the only way it'll display a picture is through my Nvidia shield menu won't come on at all
