New SainT v2.00

Post by leonard »

Hi all,

After a new daugther , here is a new SainT :-)

http://leonard.oxg.free.fr

New features:

2.00
* Great speed up for video recording !
* Video recording support both 25 and 50Hz rate
* Screen is now 400*274, no more black lines at top and bottom in fullscreen (in GPU mode, enjoy fullscreen demos !)
* More pixels detail in "sound output debug" graphical view
* CPU rendering finally compatible with 16 and 32bits rendering, should run in windowed mode on more machines !
* CPU rendering enanced, SainT should work on software DirectX machine (some laptop)
* faster and cleaner low-pass filter routine
* removed old code path for dynamic texture
* removed all old-fashioned CPU rendering modes (blend, interlace)
* fixed "msvcr71.dll" missing message.
* Again a new 68000 prefetching routine
* fixed nasty bug if any shifter write at the very end of the frame
Leonard/OXYGENE.

of course I am insisting of not having windows at home, so, downloaded saint and just run it with wine. OOOOPS, there is a window! It runs!
Impressed. My PC is too slow unfortunately.
What does not work is selecting another floppy image.
Maybe you just need to fiddle a bit around on that and it will really work with wine.

Hi Gunstick. You mean previous SainT does not worked on Wine? If you can confirm this I can check my change in 2.0. I guess it's a cleaner "compatible" directx initialisation code.
