XGngeo 16 main window thumbnail. We are happy to announce, since yesterday, the availability of XGngeo v16 final.
A beta version was already released on august, but this new one comes with numerous bug fixes and improvements such as:

You may grab XGngeo 16 from its download area at BerliOS, or have a prior look to the updated screenshot gallery.



Back from a quick period of holliday, I'm just telling that the XGngeo version 16 final development is still actively on the way and its release should occurs soon, with many bug fixes, enhancements, and additions since the previous beta version...
Stay tuned !


We've been informed by an user that current version of Kana no quiz is fully working on the Mac OS X plaform!
Such a thing was technically propable (because of the cross-plaform Python code) but we could not test because of Apple hardware lack. However, since yesterday it's not the case any more, since an OS X user reported us the good news ! ^_^

With the Tkinter interface, Mac OS X users may thus enjoy Kana no quiz rendered using the native Cocoa engine! GTK interface is still possible but requires an X11 server to run (and isn't Cocoa-rendered :p).

Here come some screnshots of Kana no quiz on Mac OS X in action (courtesy of Scott Sanborn):

At last, now we can say the program functionning is attested on the following OSs: GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, Mac OS X. Yeah, that's a nice list! :)


One year exactly after the previous version, the Choplair-network is pleased to announce the immediate release of a beta version for the upcoming XGngeo 16.

Thought it is firstly designed for testing purposes, this release, since the previous version 15, comes with a great bunch of new exciting features which are already stable and widely usable by the end users who want to enjoy the currently best Neo Geo gamming experience ever available on Unix!

Major changes include: support for multiple ROM directories in the ROM list (which now perfectly detects ROMs using GnGeo directory scanning), bunch of new params support (hardware surface, transparancy pack, 68K and Z80 CPUs clocking, new benchmark mode...), full Hot Keys support (independently for the 2 players), universal BIOS support, manual ROM selection now featuring automatic ROM detection and optional display of preview image, etc.

The small details that make this release a beta are the lack of up-to-date interface localization (final release should contains updated translations) and also some little potential bugs you might encounter and are encouraged to be reported to the Choplair-network, in order to prepare the release of a completely fail-safe version 16 of XGngeo as soon as possible!

Interesting links: the XGngeo v16 beta download page, its whole Changelog, the updated screenshots gallery, and the original release announcement.
