Software News   Software News : WinUAE 1.4.5 (20.12.2007)
   posted by Dary on 21-Dec-2007 5:30:23 (2803 reads)
WinUAE 1.4.5 released today (20.12.2007).
UAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000 and WinUAE is the Windows-version of it.



New features:

- Sana2 compatible net device (uaenet.device) emulation. WinPCap required.
- Full doublescan mode emulation (DBLPAL, DBLNTSC, MultiScan etc..),
sprite doublescan support.
- Full SuperHires emulation, bitplanes and sprites, including ECS
Denise "scrambled palette" superhires mode. Also does not downscale
hires sprites to lores anymore when bitplane resolution is lores.
- SuperHires resolution added to display panel, replaces old GUI lores
setting with lores, hires and superhires select box.
- .dsq (DiskSqueeze) and .wrp (Warp) disk decompression support.
- "Automount" and "Do not boot" harddrive options added.
- Axis movements can be mapped to buttons in input panel
(left/right and up/down)
- Picasso96 resolutions 320x200, 320x240, 640x400 and 640x480 added to
resolution list, even if no native Windows support.
- optional ini-file registry replacement. (winuae.ini or -ini <file>)
- Autocomplete added to most path text boxes.
- Added information text to hardfile panel (shows type, size,.. of HDF)
- Nordic Power 3.0 freezer cartridge support.

Bugs fixed:

- lzx decompression stability and compatibility improved.
- Debugger C-command word and long word support fixed.
- Heavy CD32 Akiko C2P usage caused huge performance loss.
- AGA statefile restore crash fix.
- Analog joystick mouse emulation fix.
- A500 cycle-exact mode freeze in some cases.
- Picasso96 display preferences resolution list corruption.
- A590/A2091 SCSI emulation buffer overflow crash fix.
- Some types of HDF didn't mount properly.
- Some automount issues fixed.
- CDTV and CDTV SCSI emulation compatibility improved.
- Some ECS Denise-only features fixed.
- Miscellaneous fixes here and there.
- Blank screen in windowed mode fixed (RGB overlay incompatibility)

Thanks again for more updates. I have it up and running!!

Now I'm just waiting for a Blizzard PPC Emulation Tick box below the 040 Tick box so I can install AOS4

I don't ask for much huh??

5 releases this year (+1 bugfix).
Not bad, one has to applaud his efforts.

Cool.
It's all good, but what about those who don´t own a PeeCee like me?
How can i have good Amiga emulation on my Mac (ppc)?
Euae doesn't seem nowhere near WinUAE, quality wise.

Regards,

Ricardo

WinUAE updates are always a good thing and the "Sana2 compatible net device" sounds interesting.

I have to admit that I use winUAE more these days than my classic Amiga, partly as Commodore never made a laptop Amiga and partly as in recent years WinUAE is getting that good its hard to tell it apart from the real thing.

But now I have my copy of OS4 for my Classic Amiga I plan to use my classic to run OS4 and my PC's and WinUAE to play old games and run 68K applications at speeds my ageing BlizzardPPC 060 can only dream about.

Not very likely.

Toni Wilen response about the ppc emulation in Winuae

Quote:
PPC "Amigas" should have never existed. Amiga is dead and it should rest in peace (and kept as a nice hobby system like any other 80-90s computer) but no, it is kept in life support instead when its soul has been long gone/brain has been totally damaged and mutated (you can make your choice between brain/soul)
Answer is still NO. I never add anything PPC specific to WinUAE. (of course I can't prevent others to fork it)

Well, if it's for speed, PPC emulation should at least in theory be as fast as 68k.

@Pixie

Not really because you need take in count of virtual memory emulation.

Yes there's MMU which is absent from the emulated 68k

Really? People still are taking about the speed thing?

I mean we are talking about emulating Blizzard PPC here, that run at what 166mhz, and a version of PPC that is pretty old compared to something like G3/G4?

My system is a couple years old now and it has 2 64 bit cores running at over 2ghz each. And that is tech thats "years" old now. Imagine "modern" hardware! I think 166mz isn't hard to come close to

Though it looks like it may not happen soon, we are not talking about trying to emulate G4s and run OS X 10.5 here

It would be great if we had all those fancy features on the Amiga version of UAE, mostly the user interface stuff and jit would be very nice.

I do use WinUAE because it does what I want. I'm glad they fixed the super hires display modes. Although I haven't used the new version, that is listed as one of the fixes. I wonder if all the AGA graphics modes work now.
