  Bug Tracker
Posted by: TheCanadianBacon - 08-06-2016 09:45 AM - Replies (2)

I'm sure all of you have noticed a new link in the portal related to a bug tracker.

Well the news is this. I've installed a new infrastructure for bug tracking, to access it go to https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/vi...e-m/issues login details at the moment uses github, but I may include other authentication options if the need arises. I'll also will try and properly prioritize things in a better way. In all honesty sourceforge is shit and this new infrastructure will help in not only bringing better organization but also help attract new blood to the project. Already since the move to github we have had various contributions to the project and definitely excited to see stuff flourish.

So if you have any active bugs in sourceforge project site. Please help in moving them to https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/vi...e-m/issues and help us get better organized.

  Changes in git etc
Posted by: TheCanadianBacon - 07-09-2016 11:55 AM - Replies (1)

So then, sorry for an extremely late update on the improvement plan for vba-m. Been busy with life and job that I haven't gotten round to it properly. However I have some free time.
Part one of the update was to go for a more uniform styling for code, remove some unneeded typedefs etc (which is gonna be a pain to replace with the proper code line, by, line.) But in the end it'll help improve things quite a bit in terms of readability and eventually improvements to the codebase.

So for now until the changes (at least where typedef format is concerned) git is off limits till the change is complete, or unless you're helping out and submitting pull requests.

  The future for vba-m
Posted by: TheCanadianBacon - 02-24-2016 10:52 AM - Replies (11)

So to cut it short, we still have bit of an edge in gba emulation, I'm proud to say we've done well for a project, e-reader support, debugging support etc. For the most part we are getting pretty close to a 2.0 release. But for 2.0 and beyond, what's going to happen you may wonder?
Well, I know this is what I want to do, and this is what I will be doing for the next couple of months. In a separate branch in the main git repo, I'll be slowly rewriting portions of the emulation cores in vba-m. Namely for readabilities sake but also for the fact I believe the project would benefit from a file by file rewrite, improving the current code to a more modern approach and see if we can get some improvements to what we have and correct some issues along the way. The other goal for the rewrite is also to increase the accuracy of said emulation as well, increase accuracy but also maintain the balance of the speed we currently have. We've come a long way and we owe a lot of thanks to everyone who was part of the team and who are current as well.
It's going to be a long journey but one I think that will make vba-m better for it.

We are going to make vba-m better than ever.

  Forum Recovery: An old backup :(
Posted by: Squall Leonhart - 01-06-2016 05:45 AM - Replies (2)

As some of you may have noticed, a couple of 'wannabe' hackers defaced our forum recently, prunning our member base and modifying a couple of display templates, deleting all the forum categories and boards.

While the posts were all still available in the database, they were not able to be reconnected to recreated boards and were basically lost, which would have more or less meant a fresh start had we just chosen to recreate them.

A backup i had on hand was from 2013, considering the low activity on this forum i chose to restore that and lose the handful of posts and threads made between then and now and recover the lost user accounts.

The defacers gained access to our admin cp via an inactive administrators account, we assume by recreating his email address and logging in with a reset password.

They did make a backup of the database prior to pruning everyone off and as such we have reset everyones passwords, you will be required to make a new one on your next log in.

Thanks to http://web.archive.org, a mirror of a number of the threads lost are available @ http://web.archive.org/web/2015121809263...vba-m.com/

  Calling for translators.
Posted by: Squall Leonhart - 01-06-2016 05:29 AM - No Replies

This is a calling for translators, we want to support as many languages as we can, current pot file https://sourceforge.net/p/vbam/code/HEAD...wxvbam.pot and for gvbam


To make a translation, go to Transifex: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/vba-m/ and update the translation there.

One can also either use a text editor or use something called poedit http://poedit.net/ please submit translations to this topic https://sourceforge.net/p/vbam/patches/58/

  No support for unofficial distributions of VBA-M
Posted by: Squall Leonhart - 01-14-2012 04:04 AM - Replies (3)

This should really be obvious to most, but for those its not, we won't be supporting or accepting bugs for builds of VBA-M that aren't built by the reporter or obtained from the official project page.

We cannot ensure the integrity of such builds, in that they've been built properly with the correct MSVC version and settings and that they have not been infected with malware.

  Dear Indian Spammers
Posted by: Squall Leonhart - 10-18-2011 08:55 PM - Replies (2)

Kindly give it up.

Your bullshit accounts are usually detected and banned before you even get a chance to use them.

If they do manage to make a post, they are usually removed and banned by one of our frequenting moderators before google has a chance to cache the crap in its spider.

Further, every account you make just has its full details entered on the stop forum spam database.

There are legitimate users within the 122.164.*.* and 122.174.*.* ranges and it would really be no detriment to us to ban them along with you.

  Downloads once again available
Posted by: Nach - 08-08-2011 06:30 PM - Replies (12)

Our downloads section had to be disabled some time back because MKPortal was uploading the files to users incorrectly. We've also had some bugs present on the forum in regards to downloads.

I've rewritten the appropriate code within MKPortal and MyBB to send files to users properly. Not only do downloads work correctly now, they can also be handled by download managers, and resumed if the download got interrupted. You might also notice an improved download rate when downloading files.

Now our downloads section is back, and we will continue to post new VBA-M builds there.

  Visual Boy Advance-M SVN 1025
Posted by: TheCanadianBacon - 06-15-2011 01:38 PM - Replies (32)

if I had a drum roll I would use it now, but this is as good as it get's

Introducing a whole new vba-m release using a brand new interface using WxWidgets, special thanks to darktjm for coding the interface code and donating it to our use, this will allow for a more universal/cross platform interface for all operating systems

currently though win32 and linux releases will be made available (not that I personally don't like macs because I do like them, I just don't have one to compile a release for you guys :/)

today though I'll be releasing the first binary for windows users
some stuff worth noting for this first binary is that ffmpeg is statically linked as well as cairo graphics, which will be subject to change in future builds to help reduce executable bloat.

to download this release is here

also please note, there will be bound to be bugs in this release
some notable is save states both loading and saving will cause the emulator to crash occasionally but saving via games save feature seems to be working.
In short, if you are going to be reporting bugs, be detailed about it, what you were trying to do, operating system, anything less than detailed will be ignored.
