‘nWrap’ Enhances Nuance Emulator

SIXL Running under nWrapForum member SophT has written a CLI enabled, full-screen wrapper to enhance the user interface for the PC Nuon emulator “Nuance.”

Below is the readme file with more details:

This is a wrapper for Nuance, a NUON Emulator.

nWrap was written to support nuance on arcade cabs, so it supports command-line input and ‘esc’ key closing.

Usage is simple:

simply drop nWrap.exe and nWrap.ini in the same directory as nuance.exe

nWrap “Drive:\Path to\your\nuon\files\nuon.run”

This works for files on your harddrive or mounted on a virtualized drive.

Known issues:

IF there’s an error with nuance and it crashes (not as a result of the wrapper) before the video screen appears you may get hung with a black screen.
You can alt+tab and exit nuance, or kill it with taskmanager and exit nWrap.

nWrap.ini contains the resolution of your desktop that you would like it to return to AFTER exiting.
NWrap will run at a resolution of 640×480x32 - so again make sure your monitor can handle that.

NUON and Project X Shirts and Jacket

I recently got my hands on a few pieces of NUON history so I thought I’d share some photos. First is a NUON polo shirt, with the logo on the front; second is a VM Labs/Project X shirt; third is black NUON polo with the old nuon.tv URL on the sleeve; and finally we have a VM Labs/Project X Jacket.

These are great collectors items and are in new condition from what I can tell. All I know is VM Labs must have had some big guys working there, because even the medium shirts are pretty big!

NUON Authentication Software Found

One of the holy grails of the NUON scene has been uncovered. Skah_T has come across the essential tool to allow homebrew NUON developers full access to create software for every NUON player, not just those capable of playing CD-Rs. The authentication software basically breaks down any barriers there were to creating full DVD-compatible NUON software.

Download the file and check out the disc at the DragonShadow Industries site. There is documentation included in the .zip file so download, play around and get some NUON DVD software going!
