WinUAE 2.6.0 Beta 16 - The Very Best Amiga Emulator

Here we are again, yet another beta version of this great Amiga emulator WinUAE by Toni Wilen. As such we are now on Beta 16, which includes amongst other things a display glitch fix. This is truly one of the best Amiga emulators you can use for playing games, and for using an emulated Amiga OS. Lets see what's been fixed!

BETA 16 :

This beta should fix all strange display glitches introduced in previous 2.6 betas.
- New style filter mask config entry didn't load. (b6 or later)
- Improved mouse movement mapping in GamePorts panel remap window (It creates mouse movement mappings that makes sense..), also implements 1s delay before next mouse movement is accepted in test/remap modes to reduce accidental events.
- Don't attempt to combine left/right->horizontal and up/down->vertical if remapping single event.
- Add select menu didn't include any "standard" device-specific events. (Incorrect filtering)
- DirectDraw + none filter was slow. (b7)
- Blitter changes in b12 still had some problems.
- "Subtle Shades" update was still broken, caused strange glitches in some situations.
- Left and right border was always fully blanked if scanline was in HAM mode.
- Low latency vsync + black frame insertion now always uses threaded vsync mode, normally was only used if fastest possible CPU mode is in use (If you have 100Hz+ monitor, especially lightboost, your PC shouldn't be low end..), improves stability. No buffer also supported but it can be unstable.
- Added "gfx_autoresolution_delay" config entry. Number of frames to wait before autoresolution mode changes, timeout will always reset if mode change is detected during timeout countdown.


Another great alternative if you have the games and system files is FS-UAE which is a pretty damn awesome frontend that uses WinUAE at it's core. They also have a game database which you need to register for, as it's currently in Beta, which shares everyone else s working configuration files for easy Amiga game loading.

Also available are easy to install OS packages which again you may need certain legal files, but there is nothing more satisfying than having an Amiga OS running through an emulator. Further more, you can make separate installs of WinUAE by making a WinUAE.ini file in the same directory as WinUAE.exe. However make sure when you update, that you delete everything in the WinUAE.ini file(back up previous).


- We will not provide Amiga retail games or Operating System files
