Emulation News 038: Updates for 5-1-11



A little late today with updates but they are here nonetheless!

PSPident v0.74

"The scener Yoti has released a new version of the homebrew PSPident , a homebrew capable of detecting the model of motherboard you PSP , and in this new version is able to detect the G-eneretion , ie, capable to tell us if our PSP is 2g , 3g , 4g etc.
This homebrew is very important to decide now to install a CFW / LCFW or make a Hellcat to our PSP, because if they are above TA88v2 , wee can only run HENS / LCFW s make certain downgrade's.


Description:
Identify your PSP's hardware with jas0n juk & Yoti's PSPident. Use this reference guide to figure out what's what."

Jpcsp SVN r2103

"r2101
Test application for infrastructure networking (sceNetInet/sceNetApctl)
r2102
Avoid critical error introduced by r2100.
r2103
Implemented most of the function in sceNetInet, sceNetApctl and sceNetResolver. Now, a basic test application is able to connect to the internet (see demos/net.pbp). Only Infrastructure mode is implemented, not AdHoc.
Improved callback execution to not overwrite $v0 and $v1 (was required by the sceNetApctl handlers)."

Dolphin SVN r7498

"r7496
Fix EFB format change emulation in D3D11 if MSAA is enabled.
Fixes issue 4346.
r7497
Use the recommended video settings as the default configuration:
- Fast Mipmaps enabled
- Safe Texture Cache enabled at "fast"
- showing shader errors by default
- using Native as internal resolution
- using EFB to Texture by default
- ignoring EFB format changes by default (turns out r7436 made this in Super Mario Sunshine unnecessary anyway :P)
Any game which depends on other settings has that specified in the game ini, so I think this should be fine.
r7498
Fix "Disable Lighting" in D3D9 and D3D11.
Fixes issue 3185."
