Zelda 64: Recompiled was pretty interesting news recently, a PC port of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask using the new N64: Recompiled tool and now a fresh update is out to improve it further.

It was already impressive, and now even more so. It's only going to keep getting better thanks to it being open source. Linux players especially might want this one, due to a SDL crash fix. As a reminder, you do need a copy of the game to work with Zelda 64: Recompiled, since it does not provide that for you (obviously).

Version 1.1.0 brings:

  • Added an analog "free" camera in the style of later entries in the series. Moving the right stick will allow you to freely rotate the camera, and pressing the Target button or going through an entrance will switch back to the normal camera.
  • Improved motion blur effect at high framerates by using a high precision internal framebuffer (won't be enabled on machines with less than 1GB of VRAM).
  • Implemented N64 noise dither (affects the motion blur scenes).
  • Extended Dawn of the X Day screen to account for faster load times to match console timings.
  • Added a configurable scaled deadzone option to the menu. (#257)
  • Added the option to remap the menu button on controllers. (#181)
  • Added an automatic save backup system to reduce chance of losing data if saving gets interrupted. (#260)
  • Fixed a Linux crash on startup by forcing SDL2 video driver selection to X11. (#197)
  • Fixed the Skull Kid "curse" effect in very wide aspect ratios. (#259)
  • Added a main volume slider. (#267)

This Alky?

There's no word of of any court process or lawsuit in the (very candid) post-mortem and links to the source code.

Thanks, a quick search turned up nothing of note and I was wondering what Lachu was talking about. Usually when things ends up in court there is a bit more noise.

I have read about allky was made illegal many years ago on (old version of this service). On new version, I've found (in Polish):
"Alky Project na LGPL, Wine ma konkurencję
Alky Project to alternatywna do Wine metoda pozwalająca na uruchamianie aplikacji Windows w innych systemach operacyjnych. W związku z zamknięciem firmy Falling Leaf Systems, LLC cały kod projektu został udostępniony na licencji GNU LGPL.O Alky pisaliśmy półtora roku temu, w związku z wydaniem ReactOS 0.3.0, jako alternatywie..."

I must search for older news.
