WinUAE 1.5.1

WinUAE 1.5.1 release from 12th August 2008.

New features/Improvements


- Added support for Direct3D pixel shader filters (very fast compared
to software filters, pixel shader 2.0+ compatible display card
required), plain Direct3D filter performance improved.
Latest (August 2008 or later) DirectX required.
- In windowed mode all resolution or chipset/RTG mode switches
resize the window instead of window closing and opening.
- Aspect ratio setting added to RTG and filter panels.
- Window resize enabled in windowed mode (chipset mode).
- Added Picasso96 option "Always scale in windowed mode" which enables
window resizing and disables automatic resize. Keeps aspect ratio
automatically.
- Only reset fullscreen mode when resolution or depth changes.
- On the fly USB mouse/joystick insert/removal does not modify
currently selected input device(s) in Ports-panel.
- Enable ini-mode (registry replacement) if .ini
(without .exe) is found. Previously always used winuae.ini.

And more. Originally 1.5.1 was planned to be "1.5.0 bug fix" update only...

Major 1.5.0 bugs fixed


- Failed to start with some display card/driver combinations.
- Regular (non-RDB) OFS formatted hardfiles didnīt mount under KS 1.3.
- Memory corruption in configuration file handling causing random
crashes when loading or saving configuration files.
- Configuration files in subdirectories didnīt load if configuration
cache was enabled.
- RTG hardware mouse cursor may have been invisible (or had
wrong graphics) in some cases after resolution change.
- Switching between non-interlaced and interlaced modes caused random
"scanline" graphics corruption.

Other bug fixes


- Built-in HRTMon crashed in JIT modes.
- Interlace modes fixed in "normal" (non-doubled/scanline) modes.
- Fixed borderblank graphics corruption in interlaced modes.
- Fixed possible crashes when switching Windows desktop resolution or
when using quick user switching.
- "Kickstart Replacement" fixed.
- PCMCIA SRAM emulation didnīt work in memory expansion mode.
- Emulation paused if "stop sound while inactive/minimzed" was enabled.
- Improved directory filesystem statefile support.
- AVI recording crash if only audio recording was enabled.
- Native DLL support fixed.
- Forced fullscreen refresh rates didnīt work in some cases.
- Multiple identical (same serial number) USB game controllers do not
confuse input system anymore.
- Major blitter slowdown in some AGA modes.
- ADF was not updated if disk write was aborted (Cadaver save disk)
- Crash when USB mouse/joystick was removed or inserted before
emulation was started.

Retro Computer Museum

RETRO COMPUTER MUSEUM

OPEN DAY (One Day Only!)

Sunday 16th November 2008

What is the Retro Computer Museum?

The Retro Computer Museum is a new project launched in the UK by Andy Spencer. The project is to create a retro computer and console museum in the UK based in Leicestershire.

The idea behind the museum is to archives the history of computer and console video gaming through the use of real working machines, allowing visitors to the museum a hands on experience, so they can play and interact with the games and real machines throughout the history of computing.

Where is the project at so far?

The Retro Computer Museum is still being developed. At the moment the machines to be displayed and used in the final museum are still being collected. Already over 50 working computers and consoles are in the museum's collection ready to be included. Many of these were kindly donated to to the project for inclusion, and if anyone else has some retro computers or consoles they wish to donate for inclusion at the museum please contact Andy at the email address below for further details.

Open Day.

An open day is being held on Sunday 16th November 2008 to see how popular the idea of this museum is going to be. If you live near to Leicestershire please come along to show your support and also to chat with the people behind the project and to share your thoughts and ideas about it.

The Open day is being held at the Swannington Village Hall, near to Coalville in Leicestershire in the UK (directions to be added).

There will be around 20 working systems at the open day including Sinclair Spectrums, Commodore 64s and Amigas, Amstrad CPC464, Sega consoles, Nintendo consoles, and some others to play on!

Website.

A website for the museum is already up and running at
http:// www.retrocomputermuseum.co.uk Please visit to see more of the project and what it is trying to achieve. The website already has extensive information about the machines already collected together for inclusion, and also contains a forum where you can post your support or offer ideas and suggestions.

Contact.

If you would like any further information please contact andy via the website,

Classicamiga would like to wish Andy luck with this project. We hope that the open day attracts a lot of vistors who will enjoy the event and also share their ideas and thoughts about the project.
