 DU: Sunday News

rtw dumped Shikigami No Shiro Version 1.02J with help from ShouTime, og and smf. This version 1.02j is dated 2001/09/27 however version 2.03j is dated: 2001/08/07, so this is newer. caius dumped an alt version of Sky Wolf. Charles MacDonald dumped and unknown Amusco board for Roberto Fresca that is needed to help with the emulation of its platform. gomarco79 sent me a bootleg of Street Fighter II that looks different from ones I've seen in the past. I'm not sure if it has hacker-creative changes yet.

 DU: Space Lords

Peter Wilhelmsen and his friends beat the protection in another Atari GX2 game, Space Lords.

After some hacking about we ended up with a setup that looks like this:

This time we actually manufactured an adapter/breakout PCB so that we did not have to solder on the CLARN board.

After much data logging and analysis we could see that the protection was similar to that of Moto Frenzy but also significantly harder due to the fact that they would dynamically change the LSB byte of the LFSR polynomial several times a second.

Finally after months of hacking we fully broke the whole protection system

 PfeMAME v1.002 Is Out Now

pfeMAME v1.002 has been released

Its been ages since I have released a new version. I believe the last version released had some pretty major bugs. This new release brings about a large number of big fixes and improvements and better support for MESS systems. For a full list of changes please see the changelog (v1.001 was never released publically so those changes also relate to this release). As usual, please provide feedback, bug reports, etc either via Sourceforge or .

Files can be downloaded from Sourceforge here. Precompiled Linux 64 bit, Windows 32 bit and 64 bit are available as well as the source code.

pfeMAME is a front end for MAME written in (wx) python. It has been tested in Linux (64 bit) and Windows (XP, 7, 10). Please read the manual before running as it answers a lot of questions.
