gpSPhone 1.5.0 Released

Posted by Eric March on February 4, 2008

It’s-a New!ZodTTD is trickling out the updates to his coterie of software. First out of the gate is gpSPhone, the seminal (well, only) Game Boy Advance emulator for the iPod Touch and iPhone.

gpSPhone, the Gameboy Advance emulator, has been updated to v1.5.0. New changes in this release includes:

– Added support for both scaled/unscaled landscape and portrait view settings.
– Added support for firmware 1.1.3’s “mobile” user. gpSPhone should run well on 1.1.3 now.
– Added hardware accelerated scaling for better performance and look.

This release should be very stable and slightly faster. You now have the option between portrait and landscape mode. Hardware scaling gives a smoothed over looking picture, which some may prefer, with the advantage of performance.

A big thanks to Exophase, the author of gpSP, for his continued work on emulation. Without him, gpSPhone couldn’t exist.

For public domain ROMs (legal homebrew games) , head to Kojote’s great site: http://www.pdroms.de

Downloads for gpSPhone v1.5.0 can be found by visiting the Download section. It is available at the ZodTTD.com public Installer.app repo.

All you folks who earned your manhood (or womanhood) in the trial-by-fire that is the 1.1.3 jailbreak can now play rousing tournaments of Mario Kart with ease, and the scaling and use of OpenGL should make it a lot prettier.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Zod also has a cool new look for his blog that’s worth checking out.

Zod Strikes Back

Posted by Eric March on January 29, 2008

It’s-a me!ZodTTD doesn’t sleep. Ever. I know this because no human being could possibly do as much as he does in the span of time he does it and still manage to saw a few logs. You already know his work so far: gpSPhone, psx4iphone and OpenTTD are his current projects. You may also be aware that he presently has a Super Nintendo emulator, snes4iPhone, that is currently touring the beta circuit. Well, you’d better get your fill of ROMs and get ready for a barrage, because Zod has some big plans, and he intends to hatch them within the next few days. In his own words:

snes4iphone is being worked on more as we speak. Performance will increase, the tricky part will be to maintain or improve compatibility. In v0.4.1 the addition of landscape mode is included and the GUI has been replaced with a more familiar look.

The ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) for the public version of snes4iphone is about a week or less.

Though remember there will be constant beta tests to be had for registered ZodTTD.com forum members who donate. Especially with some great software lined up. ZodTTD.com Beta Testers Club members get to see releases before being made public. So there’s always lots to enjoy.
