Spu2-X 1.5

Authored By:  rama

Hey guys, In light of recent fixes and additions we prepared a new SPU2-X release for you 😊

This one focuses on SPU2 emulation accuracy but there’s also the much requested volume adjustment feature included. You can now try a fake SPU2 reverb mode that may sound better than the (still somewhat broken) original reverb.

Emulation improvements:

  • Reverb engine reviewed and mostly rewritten.
  • Initialization modified to reflect test results, including a critical portion of the BIOS initialization sequence to support fast boot.
  • Hardware reset feature removed because tests failed to prove its existence.
  • Possible null pointer access eliminated.
  • Added support for reading KON and KOF registers, which is used in the BIOS.
  • Improved voice loop logic based on tests.
  • Constantly mix the input area and generate IRQs from accessing it.

Among the fixed games are titles such as:

  • F1 2005
  • Burnout in-game music
  • Tomb Raider (the whole series)
  • Spyro the Dragon
  • Gauntlet Dark Legacy
  • Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver 2
  • etc

Hope you enjoy, and please report all (new) bugs if you find them!
