  • [Change #357] Resurrected the AppleWin 1.25 "Color (Standard)" video mode as "Color (RGB Monitor)".
    [LIST]
  • This is equivalent to emulating RGB video, ie. a video mode with sharp text and pixels.
  • NB. Unlike AppleWin 1.25, this is now cycle-accurate, so demos that synchronise with the video scanner will work correctly.

[*][Change #603] Removed support for v1 save-state files.

  • Any v1 save-state files should be loaded into AppleWin 1.27, and then re-saved to a v2 save-state file.

[*][Change #597] Removed the functionality for CTRL+F10 to reveal the mouse cursor.
[*][Change #585] Added a 'Swap' HDD button to the Configuration->Input property sheet.
[*][Bug #608] Mockingboard's 6522 TIMER1 wasn't generating an interrupt quickly enough for Broadside's detection routine.
[/LIST]

Direct from the GitHub:

This is a small, but important, bugfix release. Movie support, which was broken in 1.56 has been fixed. The GTK+ port will be able to save config files again while using non-latin languages. Aside from that, there have been some cleanups and a bit of UI refinement. The only emulation change is an adjustment to a timing hack.

Changes:

Snes9x 1.58
- Move the LICENSE file to the base directory and use a stub
in all the source files referring to it.
- Adjust Chou Aniki timing hack.
- Use 1-based numbering when displaying pressed keys.
- Hide controller port if disabled when displaying keys.
- Fix movie playback.

libretro:
- Fix interlaced modes when overscan crop is enabled.
- Allow overriding -flto. (orbea)

GTK+:
- Use shared snes_ntsc implementation.
- Remove extra LGPL licensing to avoid confusion.
- Don't translate config file entries. Fixes breakage on
non-C languages.
- Fix issue where config file doesn't contain all configurable
entries.
- Remove config options for Netplay, Joystick, and JMA. SDL 2.0
is now mandatory.
- Updated gettext and removed intltool. update-po should now catch
all translatable strings.
- If available, reduce input lag option will now use fences instead
of glFinish to prevent hogging the CPU.
- Onscreen text can be variable width and will show up in some more
cases now.

Win32:
- Add audio device selection (XAudio2 only)

to an application folder in internal storage. See below for all the

* Added "Settings | General | Prefer App Folder" option.
* Enable app folder preference to save new files to the application folder.
* Fixed "Completely Delete File" menu option.

fMSX 5.5.4 -- MSX, MSX2, MSX2+ Home Computer Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx
* Added "Settings | General | Hide Dot Files" option.
* Enable hiding dot-files to ignore system files created by MacOS.
* Added "Settings | General | Prefer App Folder" option.
