[blog] bsnes frame advance input latency post-mortem2019-10-13 12:00:55
I wrote a post-mortem on a recent frame advance bug causing two additional frames of input latency. I want to stress this only affected the frame advance functionality and not normal gameplay, but still, the analysis and findings were rather illuminating, so I thought I'd share a breakdown of what went wrong and how it was fixed.

FPGA article plan2019-10-12 03:08:21
Given the reception of my last FPGA article (which wasn't taken at all as I had intended), the prospect makes me a bit nervous, but I feel an article on the subject of FPGAs and their role in emulation would make a great complement to the recent article about cooperative threading. Specifically to attract attention to amazing projects like MiSTer, which seeks to emulate as many systems as possible in an open-source FPGA system.
If anyone from that community would be up for working with me on such an article to ensure it's factually complete and unbiased, I would appreciate that and would like to put something together for it. Social links are at the top of the page, or Discord is fine. Thanks in advance!

I set up a keybase.io account for my PGP key, in case anyone needs that.
New article on byuu.net2019-09-30 22:05:13
I wrote a small article with some advice to aspiring emulator developers on getting started in emulation. Hopefully it helps someone.

r/pcgaming AMA2019-09-28 14:16:34
I hosted an AMA on /r/pcgaming earlier today, if anyone's interested.
It is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Image Gallery2019-09-24 19:09:32
I've created a new image gallery for photos of my time in Japan: sights, culture, and cuisine.
You can browse the gallery here.
Yeah, we're doing this again. Third time's the charm?
Unlike previous incantations of the forum, this time the board has no general discussion. I don't want to moderate communities anymore.
The board is instead focused on development. Essentially, GitHub issue trackers are a terrible way to manage compatibility lists and have nuanced discussions. And I'm comfortable with forums, so rather than write my own issue tracker with account registrations, that's what I'm going to use. I am of course accepting bugs there for both higan and bsnes, and I'll migrate game issues to the forum myself.
Anyone is free to sign up, but again I want to stress that I have no intentions of moderating. If it's not kept on-topic, I'll be removing posts/accounts. If you're still interested, then I look forward to seeing you there, thanks!

I've added an RSS feed for posts to the byuu.org frontpage.
You can access it here.

Oooh, now this looks really cool! Hopefully as a USB device it'll work out of the box on PCs. If so, I'll be sure to have it auto-map with future bsnes Windows releases once it's out.
Edit: ah it's wireless, so you need custom Bluetooth drivers. Definitely doable, but a touch less exciting.
Night Theme and Mobile Support2019-08-12 03:31:03
Under the site menu at the top left, there's now an option for a night theme ("dusk"), which will apply throughout byuu.org. Also, I have updated everything to be easier to use on mobile devices. The preservation database may prove useful for retro game collectors now when hunting in local shops, for instance.
Custom Youtube URL2019-08-12 03:20:55
With many thanks to those who subscribed, I was able to request a custom URL. My Youtube channel is now located at https://youtube.com/byuusan. Thanks again!
Mobile Site Improvements2019-08-10 04:04:09
I've increased font sizes and reflowed the preservation page tables for mobile devices. Hopefully the site looks and responds better on mobile now. If you disagree or have improvement suggestions, ping me at one of the links in Other->Social please ^-^
New Tagging System2019-08-09 13:39:54
I added a tags bar to the top of the main page, so you can filter the kinds of information you're interested in. It's something I really, really wish Twitter supported. On the whole, I'm liking this CMS, and I want to be less reliant on third-party services, so I'll probably start posting more here and less on other sites. We'll see though ...
I set up a Youtube channel here. I'll be using it to post videos of higan and bsnes development and features.
So far, there's two videos demonstrating the new bsnes v108.1+ overclocking support...
I built a CMS system for byuu.org, with the intention of posting more frequently to this site's homepage.
For now, the previous site news can be accessed here.
