NEOPOP/PS2

March 1, 2005

Here is some old digging with my old port of NeoPop for the Playstation 2 ! this is just to keep a trace of it somewhere, as all my PS2 project are now discontinued.

NeoPop is a portable open-source “NeoGeo Pocket (Color)” emulator. The PS2 version is based on the neopop_uk‘s core v0.71.

I didn’t sacrificed compatibility to speed up the emulator (the core is really sensitive to timing), but only made some little hack in the core to speed it up (ps2 related optimisations stuff). Unfortunately, due to timing constraints and the line based emulation, the emulator is not running at fullspeed (and I swear that making it running fast is really a pain…) however games are playable at a correct speed. Also sound emulation is not always perfect and this due to not fullspeed emulation.

Current features :

 – High compatibility (identical to the original version)

 – PAL/NTSC auto-detection– Nice GUI (IMHO!)

 – Host / CD / MC support

 – HDD support (roms can be loaded from the hdd)

  – Ingame menu (for options)
