    Code:
    Recharged
    
    It's been quite a while since my last update. 
    I was starting to feel a little worn out from all the work I'd been putting into the emulator over the past few months so since releasing R12 I've been taking a bit of a break from Daedalus to unwind and recharge my batteries.
    
    It's been really nice just taking a bit of a break to do a few different things with my spare time. 
    I spent a short while in Spain with my sister, and since I've been back I've been catching up with a bit of reading, watched a load of TV that I'd queued up and played through a few games I'd had gathering dust for a while. 
    Sadly my 360 succumbed to the Red Ring of Death last week so it seems I might have been pushing it a bit too hard :)
    
    I found a new flat in Guildford which I'll be moving to at the end of August. 
    I'm quite excited about the move as I'll save a lot of time commuting. It currently takes me little over an hour to travel into work and it'll just be 15 minutes once I move. 
    I'm hoping that cutting back on the commute should not only free up a couple of hours each day, but I'll also be a bit less knackered once I finish for the day.
    
    I also picked up a Macbook Pro during my 'time off' and I've really been enjoying my new-found sense of computing freedom (I've been writing this post on the train on the way home from work.)
    It's the 17" 'lapzilla' model, and it's an absolute beast. 
    It actually compiles Daedalus faster than my year old desktop PC which I find pretty impressive. I'll have some details and tutorials about compiling Daedalus PSP under OSX in the near future.
    
    Now that I've had a bit of time off, I'm feeling very excited about getting cracking with R13. 
    My main feeling is that I'd like to continue working on speeding up the emulator to try and improve the framerate for titles that are already working. From your comments on this blog and on other sites such as the DCEmu forums (the site seems to be down right now - I'll update with a link later) it seems that this is mostly what people are interested in seeing for the next release.
    
    There are a number of different areas I can investigate to help improve performance. The two main possibilities I want to investigate are working on further dynarec improvements, and looking at making use the Media Engine. 
    To start with I'm going to explore both of these areas and try and figure out which would give the biggest 'bang for buck' for R13. I'll post and update on R13 when I have more details.

    PS Thanks for all your comments while I've been away. I have about 100 left to approve which I'll start to go through now.
    Basically he is about to start work on R13, REJOICE!

    Sorry?

    It was said he would use a BIOS, but that is false.

    Speed fixes are nice, but I would also like to see better compatability.
