    No$gba 2.6 Released

    Category: GameBoy Advance

    Important news about downloading the latest version:

    No$gba Newest-Gaming-Version Downloads
    Donate $2.50 (via paypal) and Download newest no$gba version (support the no$gba project)

    Why that donation stuff...?
    I've had some money saved up when starting to make no$gba in summer 2001, during last some years the money became less and less, so, without some new money, I won't be able to continue to work on no$gba much longer. Now, if less than one of a hundred people would click the donations button - that would probably solve no$gba's monetary problems.

    Changelog:



    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: uses fast linear color/texture interpolation when w1=w2
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: supports perspective-correct texture (eg. eragon/demo)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: supports perspective-correct rgb color interpolation
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: picks correct vertex/color/attributes on 1dot polygons
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: prevents polys at existing/possible x1=256 (off-screen)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: allows bigger than possible rear-depth (clubhouse dart)
    - nds/3d/debug: vram viewer correctly shows swap buffers as 1st command in tree
    - nds/3d/help: added note on situations where lower/right edges are excluded
    - nds/3d/help: anti-aliasing doesn't work with (opaque) lines and wire-frames
    - nds/3d/help: anti-aliasing isn't used on edge-marked polys/lines/wire-frames
    - nds/3d/help: swap_buffers parameters are applied on the FOLLOWING gxcommands
    - nds/3d/help: swap_buffers does NOT copy re-ports (disp3dcnt/toon_table/etc)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: supports w-buffering (games with reversed z working)
    - nds/3d/help: confirmed guessed texture slot locations for rear-plane bitmaps
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: allows dots on lower/right clip-boundary (off-viewport)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: prevents polys at y1=192 or y1=negative (off-screen)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: handles faulty viewports (exceeding 192 scanlines)
    - nds/3d: re-renders old frame on master changes (disp3dcnt or port 330h..3BFh)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: discards correct vertex of invalid twisted |X| quads
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates edge-marking (edge_color, opaque, polygon_id)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates correct size of line-segments and wire-frames
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates correct size of edge-marked polygons
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates correct size of translucent and opaque polys
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: enulates inwards/outwards/left/right/front/back edges
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates steep, flat, vertical, horizontal edges
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: emulates correct rounding of screen coordinates
    - nds/3d: supports direct capture from 3d engine (instead from engine a only)
    - nds/2d/bugfixes: inits engine b on reset, fixed engine b base in vram viewer
    - nds/3d: opengl: internally breaks all polygon strips to separate polygons
    - nds/3d: buffers translucent polys, and renders them later (after opaque polys)
    - nds/3d/help: corrected polygon_attr.bit11 (affects pixels, not whole polygons)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: stores alpha in framebuf (unlike evil generic opengl)
    - nds/3d/help: added description on clamped textures (clips to minmax 0,siz-1)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: supports texture clamp, repeat, and flip-repeat modes
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: clips texcoord (only if needed; point1 or point2>max)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: supports toon table (and skips green/blue calculations)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: does texture blending (modulation,decal,toon,highlight)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: explodes texture bitmap and renders texture by texcoord
    - nds/3d: emulates polygon_attr having no effect until next begin_vtxs command
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: renderer uses linear (quick'n'dirty) color/texcoord
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: interpolates color and texcoord (if any) on rendering
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: interpolates color and texcoord (if any) on clipping
    - nds/3d: allocates/stores color/texcoord/screencoord in each buffered vtx-entry
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: re-ensures range after clipping (for rounding errors)
    - nds/3d: vram viewer: fixed 4x4 texel texture mode1 crash (missing pusha/popa)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: optional depth_update for translucent polys (less only)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: optional depth_less or depth_equal rendering condition
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: interpolates depth (z) horizontally and vertically
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: initializes rear-plane rgba,depth,etc (blank or bitmap)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: front/back/linesegment check (on first three vertices)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: hides far-plane-intersecting (if enabled in poly_attr)
    - nds/3d: soft-renderer: clips polygons to all six sides of the view-volume
    - web/paypal: added an evil "donate 2.50 and download newest version" button

    Well, Martin: if you just look at the page, you wouldn't see any indication of 2.6's release. If you want people to donate, you might want to mention that, and I'm sure donations will start flowing in. ^.^

    The homepage does indicate that v2.6 has been released.

    He might've just done it. I didn't see it when I followed the yellow brick link.

    No, it's been there for a while now, as far as I remember. But whatever, it doesn't matter anymore.
