WinUAE 4.2.0 - Another feature packed Amiga Emulator release + new emulated hardware


After a number of betas through these last few months with inclusive notable changes, we have recently found out that Toni Wilen has released a brand new WinUAE version 4.2.0 with bug fixes, new emulated hardware and a huge amount of updates to take us through this month and beyond! Regarded as one of the best Amiga emulators and always being worked on by Toni, this release doesn't just have new emulated hardware such as Harms Professional 3000 and Pacific Peripherals Overdrive, but also new features including uaegfx and Picasso IV Overlay and custom ROM selections! ( See changelog below for details )


New features:

- uaegfx and Picasso IV Overlay window/PIP support.
- All GUI listviews support column order and column width customization.
- Custom ROM selection (4 slots) added.
- Direct3D 9/11 shader embedded config entry support.
- 68030 MMU instruction disassembler support and other disassembler fixes.
- 68030 MMU emulation will now also create short type bus error stack frames when possible, matching real 68030 behavior.
- Windowed mode keeps aspect ratio if CTRL is pressed while resizing.
- Added debugger invalid access logger (memwatch l).
- Reject Alt+<some key> Windows system menu key shortcuts. Invalid short cut combinations can generate annoying Windows alert sounds.
- KS ROM selection supports loading and relocation of hunk and m68k elf executables.

- Minor custom chipset fixes (Small graphics corruption in certain special situations)
- Moving mouse outside and back to WinUAE window in Magic mouse activated WinUAE window even if some other window was already active.
- AVI recording with non-standard refresh rate was reset to default if GUI was entered and exited during recording.
- uae-configuration returned return code 10 even when matching config entry was found.
- “Add PC drives at startup” enabled and same drive’s root directory also mounted manually: drive was mounted twice. (Introduced in 4.1.0)
- Genlock transparency didn’t always activate even when genlock emulation was enabled.
- A2090 compatibility fix, A2090 + tape drive does not hang anymore.
- A2620/A2630 boot ROM autoconfig didn't work with some expansion devices, for example A2090.
- Sprites to bitplanes and odd bitplanes to even bitplanes collisions didn't work in subpixel emulation mode.
