My emulation story started when i was pretty young, and 1.6 was the best you could get. But even after years and years, i never stopped using 1.6. I still use 1.6. I love the stability and old school feel :x  I was looking on Nerrel's MMN64HD thread, and i saw Gent's sig. So i looked at this desolate forum and thought, "someone is trying to continue development of 1.6? Awesome!". SO I'm just wondering if Radeon and Gent are still developing. I'm a programmer myself for about 2 years tbh, mostly Java/Python/JS, I work at a nice company, but i have no experience with emulation development. However, I do have a love of 1.6, so maybe I could beta test?? It would give me an excuse to play more n64 lol, as if I havent wasted half my life doing that lol.

now u have 2 Gentlemen ig hehe. Just lmk if u guys are still alive

When is the best build coming up? Do you need testers?

Now butters your scones!

Should now search for text.
Still no replacing but I'm seeing odd results from the hits.
Also, ignore the fact that it's returning 0 for all values.
That will come later once I decide what to do.

This is just proof of concept, lots of work needed yet.
Please test out if the other functionality has changed any as I rewrote a lot of the back end to try to simplify things.

I need to byteswap the input for searching so that won't really work, you can test it out though.
"Agent" in TWINE would end up being gAne\0t but I've no idea how you're going to copy and paste the null terminator into it.
Best you can look up is probably gAne but even that doesn't return the full list...

Hmm I just remembered I haven't finished off the cheat sorting...
Take care not to get the cheats out of order, the numbering should be Cheat0, Cheat1, etc... no sudden jumps like Cheat0, Cheat10, Cheat2 as it will ignore the latter past Cheat0.
Just need to stop right now and take a break.
Cheat Development / Cheat Text Search

Ok Rad and myself have been looking at this again and it seems Nemu Text search does indeed something Hinky that is not compatible with PJ.
However.... Zilmars Newer model with group effort overhauling the Cheat search stuff i stumbled on their improvements.
By searching known values and selecting String method it can now search for text rather accurately with incorporated live test result section like outs but also the bonus of viewing in Memory editor and live changing there also.


Below is a mod Ive done on  007 - The World is Not Enough (U) to Replace Agent, Secret Agent and OO Agent with Rob, Secret Rob and 00 Rob.

What I really like about TextSearch.png and MemEditor.png is the ability to show as Text or Hex result and also to open a Memory Editor that can Live update the value to see in realtime... nice! We need that  ;;)

Ok made the exe in focus this time and able to minimize, but would be nice to have the exe close when main exe closes also?

in current source:

Line 1172        case ID_HELP_ABOUT: ShellExecute (NULL, "open", "About.exe", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWDEFAULT); break;

What i am thinking is to have pj check for the about.exe on clicking Help/About Project64 and if not there directing to a download link? (if it is not intended to be part of the installation release)

Maybe make a self extracting archive to place it in the root directory also?

For the record, I really like this, looks and feels nice.

Anyway source added below with a video

I'm not sure when it happened but at some point this stopped working on Windows 98 SE.
That's probably the case for Windows ME as well.

It's just an oh well bit I'd say.
I can always make a custom build but who's still using that version of Windows these days?

Will spend some time programming today and updating here and there...
Hopefully I don't break XP support along the way on my quest to "Ensure this version doesn't stop working because it's using old things"
