October 15th 2008 - Release 8

Long overdue, here is, as promised, the source code to WhineCube. It is provided as-is, in hopes that it will be useful to other emulator authors.

If you have any questions or opinions, feel free to visit the forum or the IRC channel #whinecube on Efnet.

August 1st 2005 - New playable game

The second playable game has been discovered. It is Tetris Worlds, and there are screenshots. Enjoy!

July 26th 2005 - Release 7

It took a while, but now it's done. Aside from BAM being playable, there are also many other changes. Here are the most noteworthy:
  • Fixed many crash bugs.
  • Removed the need to have MSVCR71.dll.
  • Added DSP disassembler.
  • Vastly improved graphics emulation, using pixel shaders.
  • Changed window title to show game name instead of file name (GCMs only).
  • Added an option to turn debug logging off and on. It is off by default.
  • Added an option to disable the syscall instruction, enabling Freeloader and Action Replay.
Download and discuss. Oh, by the way, you might need d3dx9_25.dll. Just put it with the others.

June 17th 2005 - New screenshots

I've uploaded six new screenshots, showing off BAM3K, which is now fully playable, less sound. There are a few bugs left to fix. When that's done I plan to make a new release of WhineCube.

May 8th 2005 - Release 6

This is an interim release, a way to collect all the work I've done since the last release. I want to give a big heap of thanks to all the beta testers, without whose help I could not have done this.
  • Made several major internal changes.
  • Improved GP(3D hardware) emulation.
  • Added rudimentary memcard emulation. It is not yet directly compatible with memcard images formatted on a real Cube.
  • Added UART output emulation(OSReport).
  • Added Always on top option.
Download it here. Discuss it here.

July 15th 2004 - Release 5

This release collects a number of improvements:
  • Added software YUYV conversion and software vertex processing to increase compatibility with older graphics cards.
  • Fixed a bug where WhineCube would crash when Cancel was pressed in the Open dialog.
  • Added a debug output system for homebrew coders who test their stuff with WhineCube.
  • Added support for the GameCube Reset button.
  • A few demos that uses hardware 3D now work.
  • Added GCM booting. Note: no commercial games work yet.
