Ootake v2.54

"- V-Sync (function to redraw screen smoothly) processing has been improved.
The tempo of a built-in sound source (carve of a detailed rhythm) is
steady, and it has approached a real machine. And, when the window of
Ootake was brought to the upper part of the screen in some personal
computers, the bug of V-Sync was solved.
- The message display processing has been improved. The overall operation
lightened in some measure. And, when the desktop is used by a classic
style with WindowsXP, the bug that the label of the window blinked (
generated from v2.50) was corrected.
- The speed and timing were brought close to the movement of a real machine.
In "Final Lap Twin", when the hero enters the course in the field, the
problem that the screen occasionally fell into disorder by one frame (
generated from v2.07) was solved. In the stage 3 of "Dragon Saver", when
the wall moves, the problem that the display of one line falls into
disorder was solved. I think that the timing approached a real machine in
other games, too.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.
+ The execution file for "Windows 98/Me" was opened to the public. The
operation test is not done. Please see "Readme98.txt" in the ZIP file
about details and notes, etc.
http://www.ouma.jp/file/Ootake254-for98.zip
+ I began Twitter. (Japanese language)

PSP 3D Plugin v2.0

"The new version 2.0 does now come with an "in-game" menu. Keep pressed for more than 5 seconds to open the menu and press again to close the same.

It's now able to directly save the settings made to the memory stick which will be used automatic when starting the game next time.

Not 100% confirmed but it should work on 6.20 Pro B5.

New game supported:
FIFA 11.

Partly supported are Gods Eater and Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core. However, due to issues with the compatibility the anaglyph colors are displayed in different frames causing some flicker :o(. This might be solved with the next version..."

Altirra 1.9 Test 40

"I found and fixed a bug in the OSS 034M mapper, which should fix v1.02:

The type-B image appears to be bad -- one bank is blank and another bank doesn't match any from the other images.

I can reproduce the accelerated floating-point issue, but I don't know what's causing it yet. I will probably push the fix for that and atz support to the next version.

@Leonis:
That's a bit unfortunate. I haven't tried localizing any of the code, but I'm guessing that you're getting trouble there because the C runtime is set to C locale. I think you can work around it by changing the code to this:

str.sprintf(L"Cannot delete file "%ls": %ls", fle->mFileName.c_str(), VDTextAToW(e.gets()).c_str());"
