It is working quite nicely bar one small bug. The path defaults were changed to help Vista users, but it is now broken. You cannot set it to your real rom path without making a small change to the path location in the entry in the registry. It always defaults to "C:\Documents and Settings\Amiga Emulation\WinUAE\roms\"

This is being looked at presently and Toni will hopefully have a fix out for that soon in the next beta release.

I just edited the path in the registry to be relative to where UAE is ( ".\Roms\" )

The following "reg" entry will fix it for you


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Arabuusimiehet\WinUAE]
"KickstartPath"=".\\Roms\\"

@emavys

Yep, I noticed not long after I posted, which is why I updated the news article itself pointing to the new release and including the minor changelist in the text body.

Nice release!
Just downloaded it.
I will mostly appreciate the 030 emulation: it will boost my WHdload emulation experience as some of it's functions require a 030 in order to work (At least they refuse to work with emulated 040)
