alexh there's no new core but it seems like these guys have attacked lots of the bugs in the implementation of the 0.8.27 core, which is most welcome.
I don't think the can be a new core, the xbox is too old for anything post 0.8.27, by all accounts.
Things like not having df0 enabled if there's no image selected, little things, but all add up. I'm going to try it asap, thanks to all involved!
Ps waal hold on buddy this ain't 1emulation!
