WinUAE v2.7.0 Beta 8 - The amazing WinUAE get's another update!

Emulated Consoles/Systems : Amiga, Amiga CD32
Release News : Toni Willen continues to work on WinUAE the great Amiga emulator, which released awhile go now into the final of 2.6.0. But as is the case with this developer, it seems there is nothing stopping him from putting so much effort into this amazing project. We are now at Beta 8 and i'm sure more beta's will follow, then a final release then more betas, so without further ado, continue on to read the updated release notes.

Beta 8:

NOTE: Still no 68020/030 CE mode changes. Do not use.
- Added CD32 MPEG ROM 40.22 (part number 391777-01) to ROM scanner.
- GUI 1x/2x/4x/custom CPU speed setting showed incorrect selection (b7)
- Added "I am Windows 8.1 compatible" manifest entry.
- Workaround for Blerkenwiegel/Scoopex breakage (261b1). May cause side-effects.
- 68000 mode "CPU trace" state file restore errors should be gone (270b4)
- 260b15 sprite update off-by-one fix. (Missing vertical sprite line in Prurient/Rebels and others)
- Enabling hires bitplanes (by writing to BPLCON0 or enabling DMA) during first 4 hires fetch units didn't wait for next complete fetch unit block (should have skipped next 4 "unaligned" hires fetch units) causing shifted graphics. Partially fixes RAF Megademo single line of shifted scroller in vector part.
- Short horizontal line of incorrect graphics was visible in some very rare situations, internal buffer was not correctly cleared. (SillyScroller / Phenomena)
- ATAPI MODE SENSE (10) returned too much data if request size was small enough.
- Return INVALID COMMAND error if ATAPI and command was MODE SENSE (6). ATAPI only supports 10 byte variant of MODE SENSE.
- Added SEEK(6) and SEEK(10) commands to SCSI CD emulation.
- Some decompression formats (at least lha) were not compatible with file type detection. (for example lha containing executable didn't mount as a floppy image)
- BTST Dn,#data was accidentally marked as invalid addressing mode in b7.
- Power supply TOD counting accuracy was not that good in earlier update.
- 8-bit bmp screenshots were broken (Only created when capturing 8-bit RTG mode)
- Ignore window size changes if emulation window is minimized. Readjust size (if needed) when unminimized.
- Picasso IV flifi/VGA output enable logic tweak (Linux Cirrus Logic console)

Beta Discussion

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
