Any plans on adding the "Trace logger" feature to GB emulation?

That's quite a large can of worms right there. But this would be pretty cool, and something I could actually contribute to.

In thoery, of course. In reality, we are limited to what we can do with this core given how it is a c++ core built with an API. It may not even be feasible to hook up trace logging. But admittedly, I haven't tried yet.

In what way would you be able to contribute?

Any plans to improve add N64 emulation? It seems that the one currently used is de-sync prone, and kinda dead in development.

Ok, no core requests or "Any plans on X core?" questions! http://tasvideos.org/Bizhawk/CoreRoadMap.html Such questions will be answered by this. Any editor is able to add to this, and I encourage people to contribute it. If you want a core, then do the homework and put some info here. If you aren't an editor, ask to edit this page and you shall become one. Or at the very least, post here good info to add to this page, rather than simply request a core.

I have coded projects in C#. In my sig there's actually a link to an emulation project I have created myself. I am familiar with 6502-based ASM and have contributed to both the demoscene and the VICE Commodore 64 emulator. It may not be relevant but I have also have contributions lined up for MAME. (specifically, 4-bit DPCM accuracy in the 054539 chip) My expertise is in sound processing, but emulation is fascinating and I would like to contribute to this rapidly growing project.

Sound core emulation tends to be the most needed. The APU in NESHawk for instance is its weakest link. Atari sat for quite some time with no sound core. We have a few cores in the work that I'm worried about ever having sound.

Isn't SGB already supported? The page implies it's still on the to do list.

I can't say I am terribly familiar with all the sound cores needed, but I'll definitely look it over and do some testing. It'll take a bit to get off the ground with anything other than C64 SID since that is really the only sound chip I know from top to bottom. But there's a ton of documentation for the NES APU, so it shouldn't really be that hard if the docs are good.

I've already got some changes I would like to commit. What's the process to have my submission evaluated?

I would prefer you to come to IRC for a minute. Otherwise, get a patch to me and explain what it is you did.

A simple tracelogger has been added to GB core. Feedback will be appreciated.

Since Genesis emulation will be done soon-ish, I have to ask, will the SVP chip be emulated as well? I realize that it only was used in one game, but it would be nice to have one emulator that can do it all.

NES TAS of 2011
Yeah, I followed the changes! Will .tap extension be supported?
Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting. If TASing is meta-play, TASVideos Movie Rules are meta-meta-play!

Tape would probably be easier than disk to do but wasn't really high priority. I'll definitely consider it.

BizHawk 1.3.0 Released This release features a new core: ColecoVision, as well as FDS support for NESHawk. In addition, NESHawk is now 20% faster! There's a lot of other fixes, and features, so I recommend reading the full release notes. Windows binary

If you are copying BizHawk 1.3.0 over an old install of BizHawk, you must first purge all of your .dll files. New ones are in different places and will not overwrite old ones, leading to problems. We always recommend unzipping a new release to a new folder anyway.
