Emulation stalwart Zx-81 just released an updated version of his PSP2600. It seems that he’s really focused on this one as we all know that he became known all throughout the homebrew community because of another program, PSP7800. But what’s new with this program?

A lot, actually. But before we go into that, here’s a little refresher for our new readers so we know we’re all on the same page. PSP2600 is actually a PSP port of of Stella v2.2. Stella, on the other hand, is one of the best emulators of Atari 2600 game system. The program runs on various operating systems such as Linux, Solaris, Windows, MacOS/X, WinCE, OS/2, GP2X.

Now, probably the most important development with PSP2600 v1.0.2 is the bug fix in its Rom file requester. Accordingly, there have been instances of the PSP hanging with the first version whenever the rom list was big and already sorted. Anyway, you can read about all the fixes in the changelog provided below.

Lastly, take note that PSP2600 was developed on Linux for 1.5 FW. Zx-81 mentioned that he thinks that this would work as well for 2.x using Noobz’s eloader.

Changelog:

  • Merge the code from Stella v2.2 (replacing Stella v2.0 b1)
  • Add several Anti-Flicker modes such as: Phosphor (from Stella v2.2), nice but CPU consuming; Simple, very fast and suitable for black background games; Average, it computes average colors between two frames
  • Add paddle support, using Left / Right keys or analog Pad
  • Fix the sound speed/accuracy (For a better quality, set the PSP clock to 333Mhz in the settings menu)
  • Remove Gelon‘s name from graphics stuff (as he wants to)
  • Add Aenea as the author of the first PSP port (I’m sorry for this mistake !)
