    Release Notes: This version fixes a nasty bug in the initial mapping of split which was causing a crash or messed up graphics in all ROMs of a given size. The license has also been simplified to a combination of the GPL and a modified BSD license. The screenshot feature has been added again, and the feature for unzipping on the fly was enhanced.

    •  14 Mar 2005 09:14

      Release Notes: This version added support for hardware accelerated rendering and netplay and partial support for arcade cards (some games are playable). It also features rewritten documentation, joypad and keyboard configuration in the graphical interface, and a new graphical engine. Developers can now manipulate the internal variables at run time to create custom plugins. US ROMs are now auto-deteced, some bugs were fixed, and support for big-endian CPUs was added. The program is now mainly licensed under the GPL (some parts use the mBSD and zlib license).

      •  04 Mar 2003 23:31

        Release Notes: This version includes a real GTK GUI and some major PC engine code rewrites, such as graphics rendering and sound support (stereo mode was added). The CD emulation has been vastly improved, and Arcade card games are now partially supported.

        •  02 Aug 2002 01:06

          Release Notes: This version removes all legacy code using Allegro to prefer SDL. It also contains enhanced sound and synchronization engines. CD support has been reintroduced.

          •  09 Jan 2002 19:21

            Release Notes: All allegro references have been removed to switch to SDL. Some features have been temporary disabled: sound, CD support, on the fly menus, and throttle limitation. However, it's fully usable.

            Getting Hu-Go! and running it
            For some reason I couldn't build from the source - there seem to be several files missing. Get the latest Linux binaries, making sure that you've installed Allegro. After installing, *make* *sure* to run hu-go to run as root by using

            chown root.root hugo
            chmod +s hugo

            At least, I can't get it to run without running as root. And so far I've only run it in console.

            One other problem - with the sound configured (sound works *great*!), the gameplay seems to halt every coupla seconds. This could be that I don't have enough ram...?
