The Long Version
Can now specify a custom skin path
RetroSpy will now scan a specified custom skin path in addition to its default path for skins. This comes in handy when using the RetroSpy installer and you want to keep your custom skins somewhere on disk over than C:\Program Files\RetroSpy.
Support for CD-i Thumbstick remotes and Trackball/Roller controllers
RetroSpy now supports every CD-i controller that I could get my hands on, besides the KeyControl keyboard. There are other that are not currently supported but they are rare enough that I have never even actually seen them. KeyControl keyboard support is coming in the next release.
Support for PlayStation neQcon and dual analog controllers
This completes the support for PSX as all known controllers should be now be supported.
Support for Virtual Boy
I will be the first to admit this one is kind of silly, but it was very easy to do as it uses the same wire protocol as the SNES.
Support for PC mouse
Best paired with PC keyboard support it is now possible to show your keyboard and mouse inputs when playing PC games. My primary use case is within DOSBox.
New NES Dogbone controller skin
There was a request for a Dogbone NES skin, so here its.
New C64 Mini joystick skin
Until now the C64 Mini didn’t have a proper skin with all the additional buttons, but now it does.
Moved CD-i firmware out of experimental
This doesn’t affect most people, but the CD-i firmware is now part of the mainline unified firmware.
