   posted by TrebleSix on 20-Dec-2005 10:31:13 (1875 reads)
A new version of the excellent WHDLoad is available from here

missing sublib name too

- new: display promotion added to kick31emu, with that WHDLoad options
DblPAL and DblNTSC become working in conjunction with installed
games using kick31 emulation and supporting it

- fix: stackcheck modified to avoid complaining if first long word of
stack is trashed (e.g. when using WarpOS-XPK-Sublib and running
from Workbench)

- chg: bubble help for bplcon* registers added to WHDLoadGCI

- fix: improved startup code for kickemu and _bootdos in kick13.asm

no longer break the SMC check, autodocs fixed, disabling trace is
no longer required with SMC check (JOTD)

- chg: text explanation added to register dump for attnflags and setcpu

- chg: Snoop on 68060 now allows change of bit #6/7 of ciaa.ddra which
is used on accessing/detecting joypad

- new: if WHDLoad is started without an slave argument from the CLI it
shows a short help for all options and some raw key codes

- chg: improved speed on preload for resload_Examine, now uses dos.ExAll
and memory pools (when running on v39+)

- chg: kick31emu got a new option called JOYPADEMU, formerly included in
INIT_LOWLEVEL now separated to support GetLanguage without joypad
emulation, also the joypademu has been improved, now the keys
used are user configurable using the Custom option

- chg: options ExecuteStartup and ExecuteCleanup are now local and
global useable (Ralf Stützer)

- chg: file PreLoad improved, uses now dos.ExAll, memory pools (if
running under v39+ and more than 4MB free fast available),
asynchronous decrunching of XPK files

Forever CDs, kick130.rom or amiga-os-130.rom must be renamed to
kick34005.A500, kick310.rom or amiga-os-310.rom renamed to
kick40068.A4000, images together with the rom.key must be
installed under DEVS:Kickstarts, some older installs require a
kick40068.A1200 image these installs wont run with Cloantos roms

- new: norwegian translation added which is not complete but better than
none, thanks to Herman Andresen

It's an excellent app.
If anyone hasn't registered it, please do so, as I never wanna see WHDLoad development stopped.

Here here...

I'm a registered WHDLoad user & I can categorically say it's worth every single penny. Even on my A1 through E-UAE. Only the other night I was playing Lemmings 2 with a smile from ear to ear.

Thanks for the update.
