Here is a new (final ?) version of PSPColem the Colecovision Emulator for PSP.
For those who haven't seen previous versions, ColEm is one of the best emulator of the ColecoVision videogame system written by Marat Fayzullin. It's running on FreeBSD, HP-UX, SunOS, Solaris, Linux, and other Unix systems. PSPColem is a port to PSP of Colem (Unix version 1.0).
What's new in version 1.2.0 :
- Cheat support !
- Memory monitoring engine to find your own cheat code !
- Zip rom files are now decompressed in memory (much faster !)
- New render modes and vertical shift feature
- Improve file requester with virtual keyboard to choose
sequentially rom files beginning with a given letter
- Add documentation for settings in help menu
- A thumbnail image is now displayed in the file requester
while selecting any file with the same name of a previously
saved game (roms, keyboard, settings).
It might be very helpful to recognize that game later if you
have thousand different games in your rom folder !
- The virtual keyboard is now usable in the file requester menu to
choose the first letter of the game you search !
- In the emulator menu you can go directly to keyboard and settings
menu using the L-Trigger key.
- Fix IR keyboard issue with fw >= 3.80 for FAT PSP
- New default keyboard mapping
- Add Moon Patrol music to EBOOT
- Source code can now be compiled to build a linux version
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public license,
