Is Yabuse being worked for the Wii? I see there's movement on the actual project.

    Is anyone planning on porting the new updates over? I might be if I can figure things out. I used to do QA and some code a few years ago.

    Yabause 0.9.15
    August 24, 2016 • guillaume.duhamel • Release

    Following our strict release schedule (…), here’s a new Yabause version.
    This new version includes so many new stuff, I cannot list them all.
    (If you really want the full list, it’s on our repository)


    Arguably, the most notable features of this release are:

    – Low-level CD Block emulation
    – CloneCD file format support
    – High resolution for the software renderer

    We also included code from other great projects:

    – Musashi 68K core (code by Karl Stenerud)
    – SSF sound format playing (code by R. Belmont, Richard Bannister, Neil Corlett)

    As many of you should already be aware, Yabause was forked into a new project,
    uoYabause, by devmiyax. We included some of his fixes back into Yabause.

    Due to lack of maintainer, this release will be the last to include a gtk port.

    Since our last release, we also improved our tools:

    – Automated builds for linux, mac and windows
    Development builds pushed after each commit
    – Translations on Transifex
    – Compatibility reports on our wiki

    Slightly Off-Topic: Is Yabause even the best Saturn emulator out there?

    SSF for PC is. But you need a iso mounting tool like Daemon tools to mount the isos as discs for it to read them. I've been using it for years and can play all the Saturn games I want to play. Never used Yabause but I hear it's decent on PC pretty awful compatibility on Wii.

    Mednafen Beetle Saturn is the best for PC SSF aint bad though it was the best.

    There is a bug in resident evil zombies cant grab you. Some other games have problems but I can play all my games flawless in Mednafen.

    Yes I am aware of how Accurate SSF is supposed to be and how complete it is I used to use it all the time could never run it Fullscreen though lagged like hell bad frame rate.

    Source is available! As is a RetroArch Core that I use Highly Recommend it.

    Nice to know I've never even heard of that. SSF just plays the games I wanted which are all exclusives. I knew games like X-Men vs Street Fighter and Marvel vs Street Fighter didn't work but I didn't mind because I have them on MAME, and Resident Evil on PS1 etc... so SSF just worked out for me. I never had the lag or fullscreen problems on SSF though. I think it's picky about what PCs it works on, not necessarily more powerful ones either. I use a 2 gb of ram laptop from 10 years ago just for PC emulators hooked up to my TV via hdmi and it works very well on it believe it or not.

    Resident Evil Saturn has exclusive Content.
    Mednafen is available stand alone CMD Line I think but I prefer RetroArch Core.

    Last time I heard about someone trying something with yaba was something like 9 years ago. I doubt someone is interested in porting the recent updates. I can code but I've zero experience with emulators and programming for the Wii (is it ppc? lol), so I don't even attempt those things.
    Anyways, if anyone experienced in emulation and have some nice learning material, ping me up :)

    BTW: yaba sanshiro seems to be a little more worked on than the old yabause, it works ok in android: https://github.com/devmiyax/yabause
