The powerful program capable of emulating the classic Amiga computers under Windows system has been updated.
Major 1.5.0 bugs fixed:
- Failed to start with some display card/driver combinations. - Regular (non-RDB) OFS formatted hardfiles didn't mount under KS 1.3. - Memory corruption in configuration file handling causing random crashes when loading or saving configuration files. - Configuration files in subdirectories didn't load if configuration cache was enabled. - RTG hardware mouse cursor may have been invisible (or had wrong graphics) in some cases after resolution change. - Switching between non-interlaced and interlaced modes caused random "scanline" graphics corruption.
Other bug fixes:
- Built-in HRTMon crashed in JIT modes. - Interlace modes fixed in "normal" (non-doubled/scanline) modes. - Fixed borderblank graphics corruption in interlaced modes. - Fixed possible crashes when switching Windows desktop resolution or when using quick user switching. - "Kickstart Replacement" fixed. - PCMCIA SRAM emulation didn't work in memory expansion mode. - Emulation paused if "stop sound while inactive/minimzed" was enabled. - Improved directory filesystem statefile support. - AVI recording crash if only audio recording was enabled. - Native DLL support fixed. - Forced fullscreen refresh rates didn't work in some cases. - Multiple identical (same serial number) USB game controllers do not confuse input system anymore. - Major blitter slowdown in some AGA modes. - ADF was not updated if disk write was aborted (Cadaver save disk) - Crash when USB mouse/joystick was removed or inserted before emulation was started.
New and improved features:
- Added support for Direct3D pixel shader filters (very fast compared to software filters, pixel shader 2.0+ compatible display card required), plain Direct3D filter performance improved. Latest (August 2008 or later) DirectX required. - In windowed mode all resolution or chipset/RTG mode switches resize the window instead of window closing and opening. - Aspect ratio setting added to RTG and filter panels. - Window resize enabled in windowed mode (chipset mode). - Added Picasso96 option "Always scale in windowed mode" which enables window resizing and disables automatic resize. Keeps aspect ratio automatically. - Only reset fullscreen mode when resolution or depth changes. - On the fly USB mouse/joystick insert/removal does not modify currently selected input device(s) in Ports-panel. - Enable ini-mode (registry replacement) if .ini (without .exe) is found. Previously always used winuae.ini.
