Default WinUAE 2.3.0 Beta 14

A new public beta of WinUAE, an Amiga emulator for Windows, version 2.3.0, is available. These are the changes.

Beta 13:
  • addaq.x #x,Ax and subaq.x #x,Ax had too long cycle count (this was really stupid bug)
  • joystick type (default,mouse,joystick,analog joystick,etc..) was reset to default when configuration was loaded
  • do not decide bitplane dma overriding sprite dma too early, DDFSTRT might get moved few cycles before bitplane dma was originally supposed to start (Heimdall 2 AGA mouse cursor)
  • floppy panel DF0: "write-protected" text was getting disabled
  • SCSI emulation is only forced if version stored in configuration file is older than 2.3
  • CDTV MODE2FORM0 2336 byte sectors didn't work in image mode
  • Sherlock Holmes - Consulting Detective separate video tracks hack removed, working full image is available.
  • mds subchannel data wrong positioning fixed
  • fixed some rare thread syncronization issues when CDA was stopped
  • read also standard 2048 byte sectors using SPTI if CDA required SPTI mode, mixing IOCTL and SPTI does not seem to be reliable
  • Brian the Lion CD32 starts CDA play at the very end of data track, obviously this must not be an error, only return error if both current start and start + 2s is located inside data track
  • files inside archives didn't load if path was relative
  • paused CD32/CDTV was resumed after exiting GUI ("old-style" GUI pause/resume was not removed..)
  • directories selected via "favorite menu" also sets default path
  • prowizard updates
Beta 14: (official release in september, few more betas to go)
  • DSKSTEP and DSKSELx going inactive at the same time steps the rw-head normally. Fixes Euro Soccer stupid disk change detection.
  • uaehf.device HD_SCSICMD TEST UNIT READY returned an error (HDInstTools works again)
  • added 68020 CE-mode very approximate 2-stage CPU prefetch pipeline emulation (not that 68020 don't really have 2-stage prefetch but it still will be more compatible without major changes) Fixes ATR and (partially) Last Ninja 3 CD32 graphics glitches, (missing blitter waits..) also more compatible with self-modifying code
  • CD32/CDTV empty "image mode" tried to select physical drive
  • added windowed mode configuration GUI setting (borderless, minimal, normal, extended) Extended is WIP and something you (and me?) should ignore
  • do not capture mouse if left mouse was clicked and WinUAE window had no focus (now available via GUI = can't be totally useless anymore..)
  • borderless mode can be dragged by clicking mouse button once, only double click captures mouse
  • fixed epson printing emulation blank page when printing multiple text pages and later pages didn't have any font or font style changes
  • more prowizard ripper updates
Download it at the English Amiga Board. It'll be later available here.
