Default WinUAE 1.5.3 beta 0.1

This Amiga emulator for Windows has a new beta release. This is what's new:

Beta 0.1: (just random updates and tweaks, beta 1 when some new features are done..)
  • "always on top" change works on the fly
  • "no taskbar button" works on the fly
  • missing stack frame type 4 added to RTE
  • dragging zipped adf to floppy leds mounted it as a filesystem, not as a disk image (I guess zip containing only disk image(s) dropped to WinUAE window should also mount as a disk image?)
  • emulated OCS-only "scanline" effect if DDFSTRT < 0x18. (Music disks Ode to Ramon I and II by Digital Force. ECS = scroller is unreadable and without "scanline" effect)
  • "latest news/abandon"-fix broke "nakudemo"-fix, both work now
  • parallel/serial/midi select menus didn't work
  • Input-panel numeric boxes at the bottom didn't work (same as above)
  • sleep_millis() was not thread-safe (could have caused random timing glitches in some very rare cases)
  • emulate joystick 2nd/3rd button pullup resistor because some games require it (and apparently some/many Amiga compatible 2+ button pads have it). For example BC.Kid 2-button mode won't work without joystick/pad with pullup resistor in second button pin. (regular single button joysticks don't have pullups) Analog joystick update in 1.5.x "broke" this.
  • POTxDAT X and Y counter bytes were inverted (Aladdin second button)
  • reset current disk sound parameters when on the fly drive sound settings are changed (does not fix missing motor sound until drive motor restarts, not worth the trouble, at least not yet)
  • replaced "shouldn't happen" abort()'s in JIT with error dialog and forced hard reset
  • highgfx superhires mode missing pixels fixed (also possible in some normal max overscanned AGA-only screenmodes)

Download it here or the English Amiga Board.
