微軟XBOX模擬器 Dxbx v0.4 Final

2010/10/28 23:54


屬於上一個世代的家用主機平台,使用了與一般PC硬體相似的XBOX

經過了長久的努力開發,XBOX的模擬器-Dxbx目前已小有斬獲

並發佈了最新的更新版本-Dxbx v0.4 Final

由於是第一次介紹Dxbx,先說明一下開發團隊對於模擬器的使用說明:

(由模擬器的ReadMe.txt節錄)

Introduction
------------
Dxbx (a Delphi port of Cxbx) is an emulator for running Xbox games on Windows 2000 and higher.
Emulating a Xbox is a daunting task, so there's no guarantee that any game will work.
Emulation is done by a High-Level abstraction of the Xbox system.
This means that any game that accesses the hardware directly will not work.

Prerequisites
-------------
Dxbx only runs on 32-bit Windows 2000, XP and Vista. The 64-bit versions of Windows will not work due to lack of support for segmented addressing.

Running under Linux using Wine is not tested, but it might just work. (Please let us know your results!)

System requirements
-------------------
CPU: A 1Ghz Pentium or better should suffice.
Memory: Running with less than 512 MB is not recommended.
Video: Gpu with directx 8 support
Controller: Keyboard or Gamepad


上述的重點有:

模擬器可運行於32位元版本的Windows 2000或更新版本,但無法於64位元版OS上使用,Linux系統則沒進行過測試

最低硬體需求:時脈1GHz以上的Pentium CPU,512MB以上的記憶體,及支援DirectX8以上之顯示卡

當然...建議還是至少雙核CPU,1GB的RAM,中階以上顯示卡或許會更好


而最新版本Dxbx v0.4 Final相對於舊版的更新內容如下:

Version 0.4 Release:
- Rewrite of pattern scanning and symbol detection
- Menu option to skip cache file
- Menu configuration for log settings
- Games loaded will be added to the gamelist.
- Games in the gamelist can be started by pressing launch button
- F12 for creating screenshotss
- Pixel shader emulation
- Speedups in function-patching.
- Software overlay mode speedups & full-screen stretching.
- XbeExplorer feature : Goto address
- XbeExplorer feature : Manual extraction of function patterns
- Major speedup in 'logging-disabled' mode

Again huge improvements...


- 重寫了掃描和符號檢測模式
- 目錄選擇修改為略過快取檔案
- 目錄配置可於log檔案中設置
- 添加遊戲加載後將被添加到遊戲列表的功能
- 添加了遊戲中的遊戲列表,可以通過按下啟動按鈕啟動
- 添加了F12鍵可截取遊戲截圖
- 像素著色器的模擬
- 功能及修補的速度提升
- 軟體覆蓋模式的速度提升及全螢幕拉伸功能
- 相關工具XbeExplorer的功能修正及改進

================================

特別提醒事項:

根據模擬器資料夾內的Compatibility list,目前僅有4個遊戲可進入到開頭畫面或是進入遊戲

或是特定條件下可初步模擬

其餘仍是模擬不能的狀態 (所以開頭才說是小有斬獲...)

這4個遊戲及模擬狀態說明:


Turok - Intro movie & start of main menu
Rayman Arena - Intro & main menu
Smashing Drive - Playable on Nvidia
Gauntlet Dark Legacy - playable, with lots of glitches

Probably a lot more, but not every game has been tested.
Also a lot of homebrew is playable.

其餘的遊戲相容性列表請參考:

同場加映:遊戲小測

目前在我手邊的XBOX遊戲當中,唯一會讓畫面[有所動靜]的

是一款名為CAPCOM Classics Vol.2的遊戲,內容為Street Fighter 1

唯一的動靜是...畫面變綠......XD



至於官方說明文件中的Gauntlet Dark Legacy,或許因為阿呆比較笨,執行後都呈現一片黑....
