Retron v1.1 (???) [defunct "src" link]

Postby hikaricore » September 21st, 2014, 10:43 pm

I am only posting the changelog for v1.1 as I am unable to find the "src" link which is available for all other patches. It is possible there is not one and these patches were simply lost in the formatting change on the update website back when every new firmware release simply pointed to

Numerous NES/Famicom compatibility fixes (including improved cartridge detection logic and mapper support)
Several SNES/Super Famicom compatibility fixes (including support for ExHiROM and "SpecialLoROM" games, and better cartridge detection logic)
Fixed manipulation of cartridge saves on SNES "HiROM" games
Fixed a bug preventing a small number of Sega Genesis cartridges from being properly detected
Fixed a bug which resulted in scanlines getting distorted if the screen size was not configured to the largest setting
Added the ability to optionally display scanlines at the main menu in addition to in-game
Large update to game identification databases
File manager copy now checks if the destination file already exists and prompts to overwrite if necessary
Beginning of effort to support homebrew and repro cartridges
More reliable manipulation of the front panel LED's
Removed default mapping for "fast forward" feature, as the original button combination was conflicting with some games
Fixed a bug causing the bottom line of Gameboy games' display to be cut off
Many under the hood changes and fixes

I found the src link for this update, however it redirects to which showcases v1.6:
