Jum's Asteroids Emulator (PSX version) 27/9/2000

This is PSX version 0.002 alpha, written in GNU C (mipsgcc), using
homemade libraries.

It's an alpha version, just WIP, so some things don't work, like the
bloody fire button (don't know why).

This version runs at 512x480 resolution.
Frames are not vsync'ed, frame rate is about 40 fps +, achieved by
a some optimisation and a lot of cheating :)

You will also need the Asteroids ROM's in the same directory as the
executable. The ROM filenames are:


Obviously these aren't included in the archive, since that would
be illegal.

They're not hard to find, though.

You will also need an AR or GS or Xplorer with Caetla to upload it
to your PSX, so it's really only for PSX hackers.

Once it's uploaded and run, it will suck the ROM files off the PC
for it's own use.

It will then go straight into the debugger.
Press "r" to run for 30 VM seconds.

Press SELECT, then START.

Thanks to various people who wrote Asteroids and Atari vector docs,
and to the people who wrote the MAME sources pertaining to AVG/DVG
and Asteroids hardware.

6502 emu sources originally from Neil Bradley (I think). Anyway it's
the same 6502 emu as used in my Atari 5200 emulator.

Theoretically it shouldn't be too hard to add support for Asteroids
Deluxe, and Lunar Lander.
