WinUAE 2.7.1 (Beta 9) - Time for another Amiga Emulator update!

Emulated Consoles/Systems : Amiga, Amiga CD32
Developer : Toni Wilen
Release News :  The developer Toni Wilen has once again released another update for WinUAE, one of the best Amiga Emulators available for your PC. Beta 8 had a few issues which cropped up and found by members of EAB, so it's worth updating to 2.7.1 Beta 9 as soon as possible. If Beta updates are not your thing then stick with the final 2.7.0, at least until that's updated to a new final build. You may also be interested to note that another great Amiga Emulator using a brilliant GUI (FS-UAE) was also updated to a new final build, so check that out as well here. Read on for Beta 9 release notes!

Beta 9:

- NCR emulation didn't work with SCSI IDs 4-6.
- NCR SCRIPTS MOVE command phase bit test mismatch returned wrong interrupt status. (NetBSD 1.x)
- Added partial hack to NCR emulation that "fixes" NetBSD harmless "Phase mismatch: REQ not asserted!" warnings.
- IDE emulation: use LBA48 calculations only if command is new LBA48 command (read/write ext). This could have caused unexplained disk error messages if device driver used both lba28 and lba48 commands and HDF was lba48 enabled (>=128G in size)
- maxmem command line parameter can now also be used to increase natmem limit (if host OS allows it)
- b5 interrupt update had another problem, CE modes lost interrupts in some situations when using UAE HD controller.
- Partition hardfile dostype was set to mostly random value with some CPU configs (b1).
- Disabled "smart centering" (tries to keep old centering parameters if it is "good enough"), it does not seem to work correctly anymore (probably worked only accidentally) and leaves normal WB screen modes non-centered. Will be debugged more if something else breaks, as usual..


- You can run multiple installs of WinUAE in different directories by having a blank WinUAE.ini file in the root directory of each.
