FCEUX 2.1.5 Released!

Hey folks!  After many nights of dark LCD-lit rooms, coffee, and code the FCEUX team is pleased to bring you FCEUX 2.1.5.  Most notably, the GTK GUI for SDL platforms (Linux, BSD, OSX) has been drastically overhauled and moved from the previous two window layout (game window/menu window) into a single integrated window.

For the full list of changes, check the official press release and download it here.

For build instructions for SDL, check out my previous post.

Edit 6/17/11 - Arch Linux now includes fceux 2.1.5 in their community repository, so you can fetch it with "pacman -Sy fceux" (link).

If you're an impatient archlinux user, you can use this PKGBUILD with makepkg to build a fceux 2.1.5 package for your system before the official package is updated in the community repository. Just use the following commands:

  • sudo abs community/fceux
  • cp -R /var/abs/community/fceux /tmp
  • cd /tmp/fceux
  • rm PKGBUILD
  • wget http://xannode.com/PKGBUILD
  • makepkg
  • sudo pacman -U fceux-*.pkg.tar.xz
  • Enjoy!

    Pursuing Solo Music; RIP 4#

    I have not been very public about my music on the Internet, mostly since I was never fond of MySpace Music or uploading my material to Facebook.  For the past two years, I have been playing in a rock (punk/shoegaze/postpunk/ihategenres) band with a couple of good friends.  I'm going to loosely reference this band as 4# (a name we had agreed on for a while), although we've gone through multiple names, drummers, and band members (as well as beer pizza and guitar strings).  We've had sort of a rotating line-up, which gave me the pleasure of playing my share of rhythm and lead guitar, electric bass, and drum kit.  Anyway, due to the lack of a practice area and other factors beyond the bands control, the band has come to an end.  It's pretty disappointing for me, especially since we just about had enough original material to put together an EP...

    As disappointed as I am about this indefinite hiatus, I plan to devote more of my energy to writing and producing my own music.  Between my KORG AX300G, Gibson Les Paul (smartwood series), Presonus Firebox, a Shure SM57 and some free software I should have the tools at hand to make this happen.  I intend to share any wisdom that I might learn along the way while I start to produce my own material.

    Even with all this being said, I am really going to miss the experience of playing with a band: let alone with some of the most talented people I know.  It's going to be tough to not have other friends to bounce ideas off of and give/take critique from.  A large amount of the material that my band wrote would not have happened indepedently: it is the product of a couple guys trying to keep on rockin' in the free world.  But who knows what the future will hold?
