WinUAE 2.3.1 Released
« on: March 03, 2011, 07:17:51 PM »
Tony Wilen released another version of his amiga emulator, WinUAE.

WinUAE 2.3.1 released

=================

New features:

- Directory filesystem ACTION_LOCK_RECORD and ACTION_FREE_RECORD.
- Gamepad joystick type for games that support 2nd fire button but
  can't read it without pullup resistor. (for example Aladdin)
- Manual filter configuration fully implemented.
- Autoresolution supported (automatically selects lowest used
  resolution on the fly)
- MIDI device names are stored in configuration file.



Updates:

- Custom chipset undocumented feature compatibility updates.
  (For example Magic Demo / Diabolics, MoreNewStuffy by PlasmaForce,
  Kefrens Party Intro by Wiz)
- M68K AROS compatible IDE and RTG emulation.
- Statefile compatiblity updates. (Initial audio glitches, mouse
  counters updated correctly, CPU exact mid-instruction state saved,
  active disk DMA state saved)
- New filter defaults, 1x (not FS) and always scale if selected
  screen/window size is very small or large enough.
- Auto resize and center filter modes 1x/2x.. modifiers now
  adjust window size.
- Attempt to load disk image and harddisk paths in state files from
  current directory, current adf/hardfile path and finally state
  file directory if original path or file is missing.
- SCSI emulation physical drive tray load/eject passthrough.
- SCSI emulation CD audio support improved.
  (for example T-Zero and The Shadow of the Third Moon)
- Clipboard sharing disable option in GUI.

2.3.0 bugs fixed:

- Audio pitch errors if audio period rate was near minimum audio
  DMA limit.
- Very heavy CPU usage if program continuously plays really short
  audio samples.
- ROM scanner again detects *.rom files in root directory.
- Sample ripper works again.



Bugs fixed:

- Directory filesystem was slow on most modern multicore systems.
- CDTV CDA playback didn't work if play ending track was set to
  last track. (Prehistorik CDTV)
- 2352 byte sector plain ISO images didn't mount correctly.
- Some drives had problems reading Mode 2 Form 1 data tracks.
- SPTI+SCSI SCAN didn't detect any non-CD devices (broke in 2.2.1)
- Automatic resize filter didn't always work correctly.
- Topmost scanline was usually not visible in autoscale modes.
- GamePorts parallel port joystick configuration crash fix.
- Random RTG color errors when switching to/from fullscreen 8-bit
  RTG modes.
- Archive mounting crashed if something prevented complete unpack
  (for example non-dos dms image file)
- Harddrive state files didn't save correctly if more than one
  harddrive was configured.
- A2065 Z2 board emulation fixes. (Lost interrupts, broadcast
  packets getting ignored, transmitter dropping big packets.)
- A500 power led fade tricks really work now.
- HRTMon didn't work in cycle-exact modes.

And more...

Use the Wine.app that comes with this mate.

http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

It creates a nice WinUAE.app from WinUAE.exe in a couple of clicks.

Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! Why have I not been informed about this before? This sounds like the perfect solution! Goodbye Windows :D

What is the speed of emulation if given solution is used on Mac, let's say on basic white MacBook? Especially if compared to native E-UAE 0.8.29?

Not used it extensively yet but it seemed the same (if not better) at 3am today when I gave it a quick test with a clone of my 3.1 A3000 setup.

I'll see if I can get Amikit working tonight after the kids have gone to bed and report back.

I have a 2.6 GHz Core2Duo Macbook Pro 4,1 so I doubt any slow down would be noticeable though.

WinUAE tells me to install newer DirectX... is it really required? And if so, how can I install it into Mac???

You can but there is no need, just change Graphics API to Direct Draw on the Miscellaneous screen.

this release seems to be aimed mostly at better aros68k support. hope we will have it working on real hw soon after the speed issues have been solved.
