More bug fixes

It looks like my new debug log is paying off. It helped me track down two more bugs in the CPU core.

The first was the JSW bug, which turned out to be a simple typo (I really should be more careful). The second was a bug that had been annoying me for ages which was causing Batty to crash whenever you picked up a triple-ball bonus.

Fixing these has also fixed the crashes in Chaos. Finally I can play one of my favorite spectrum games of all time on the move!

Also, just a quick thanks to everyone who have taken an interest in SpeccyDS. To be honest, I’m quite surprised how quickly people found out about this blog considering I made one casual post in a thread on www.yakyak.org. The wonders of word-of-mouth, eh? πŸ™‚

    You didn’t need to go to all the trouble of writing a Spectrum emulator for the DS just to play Chaos on the move you know. πŸ™‚

    Oooh.. I didn’t know about the Chaos port to the NDS. Very nice πŸ™‚

    Regarding a beta release… I haven’t released anything yet, public or private. I’m planning to just release public betas straight from this blog, but there are still a few things I want to get working fully (most importantly, the sound and interface) before the first is released.
