WinUAE 2.6.0 Beta 19 - A rather excellent Amiga emulator

Here it is once again, it's WinUAE time! Thanks to Toni Wilen, he has released the latest beta 2.6.0 Version 19 of this amazing Amiga Emulator WinUAE for your pc and for those still using WinXP it contains a much needed fix.

Beta 19:

- Reduced internal display buffer memory usage, use MEM_TOP_DOWN VirtualAlloc() flag, this seems to reduce Windows XP only memory reservation problems that cause mysterious crashes.
- GUI allowed cycle exact and JIT active at the same time.


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 Open 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).
