Raine

competition

Raine is mainly a M68000 and M68020 arcade game emulator focusing on Taito and Jaleco games hardware. It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. It can emulate many games now, and new games are appearing on a weekly basis.

  • So here is 0.91, with the xml cheats from mame converted for the raine games. The cheats are included in the binary archives of the emulators, which makes them somewhat bigger (2.2 and 2.4 Mb, which is still very small for archives nowdays !). So thanks go to puggsy and his team for the work around this, I know how long it is to find cheats at least ! I picked the colors idea from them too, I found nice to have off in red and on in green for the cheats interface ! Except that when a cheat needs a parameter, it opens its own dialog which makes a huge difference from what we had before.
    There are tons of new cheats, some improve the playability of the game, try those around arkatour, or any arkanoid clone, there is one to choose the ball speed and prevent it from accelerating ever again after that, very useful to train, and you can even choose that you don't loose if you loose the ball ! (which is really the ultimate cheat in this kind of game !). The cheats are in the scripts directory. The neocd games use cheats from the scripts/neocd directory if there are some, but since there are very few there, they use those in scripts/raine if there is nothing. Some games have a different memory map in neocd, but those interested will have to test. The conversion from xml was made by a perl script, it's in the sources in git (bonus directory).
