NeoCD PSP v0.6.2 Released

Right on the heels of his last release, Zelurker has mentioned in our forums that he has updated his latest version of yoyofr?s original NeoCD PSP v0.5, the NeoGeo CD emulator for the PSP. In v0.6.2, Zelurker has made vast improvements in how fast the emulator will load zipped games:

I didn’t want to release something else so fast, but I had to find a way to load samurai spirits rpg zipped and fast. And the difference is so incredible that I had to release this version as is. It loads samurai spirits rpg in 23s if it’s zipped now ! It might actually load faster the zipped version that the unzipped version now

Actually the trick was to add a read cache to unzip.c, if some other emus want to use the trick, they are welcome to!

I also stopped to display the loading picture while ingame, and I added the patch.prg file, necessary to load samurai spirits rpg.

Also, be careful at the filesystem corruption bugs : if a program quits without closing its opened files, then there are good chances that the psp corrupts the files. So if you quit neocdpsp with the home key, a reset of the eboot loader for firmware 2.0 if you use it, or by a crash, then I advice to run something to check the filesystem on your memory card (like scandisk).

The source is available, other emus can use the trick if they need it, but neocdpsp was probably the emu which needed this speed boost the most !
