software OS4   software OS4 : Major update of glUAE released
   posted by saimo on 16-Jun-2012 20:03:21 (2275 reads)
With today's release, glUAE gets some key features that give the user even more power and comfort.
Moreover, all the available helpers have been updated and the website has been heavily revised to illustrate more clearly the many features that make glUAE so unique and powerful.

Read more...


CHANGES LIST

* Added direct WHDLoad support (before WHDLoad was treated just like any other AmigaDOS-based application, so the user had to provide a startup-sequence; now everything is done automatically - but still the user can provide a custom startup-sequence, if he so desires).
* Allowed to indicate an alternative UAE executable on a per-application basis (perfect for applications that run better on a certain version of UAE than on the default one).
* Allowed to choose at startup: the boot file, if no startup-sequence is found; a hardfile, if more than 1 is found; a UAE configuration, if none is found; the UAE executable, if the default/application-specific one is not found.
* Reworked the images mounting: when a specific image is specified for DF0:, the next 1, 2 or 3 images in the same directory are mounted to DF1:-DF3: in alphabetical order (before DF1:-DF3: would get the first other 3 images in absolute).
* Made the determination of the application form depend first of all on the input file type.
* Given the user more feedback in case of errors.
* Renamed the "first-run" splash screen as "first-launch".
* Replaced the installer with a brand-new, AmigaOS-standard installer/reinstaller/uninstaller.
* Made several internal improvements.
* Extended/reworked the documentation.


FEATURES LIST

* Any application (game, demo, tool, or even a whole AmigaOS system) can be launched transparently.
* Applications can be launched from virtually everywhere in a variety of ways (Workbench, AmiDock, menu, shell, keyboard shortcut, script, etc.).
* Applications can come in many forms: .adf, .dms, .fdi and .ipf disk images; .hdf hardfiles; ordinary AmigaDOS files; WHDLoad installations.
* Each application can be packed to a single file.
* Applications can rely on a centralized system, an (optionally stripped-down) AmigaOS system that provides the common system files.
* Each application can access specific user-defined directories of the host system.
* Each application can be configured to run optimally.
* Multiple applications can run at the same time.
* Multiple instances of the same application can run at the same time.
* Configurable spash screens can be shown before/while applications load/execute.
* glUAE is entirely based on AmigaDOS scripts and: does not run in the background, but executes only to launch the applications and to perform cleanup operations after the applications quit; interacts with AmigaOS cleanly; only takes a few kilobytes of disk space.

@saimo

When I run the installer I get error message:

"Line: 113

Error message: HELP argument is missing.

The HELP argument is required because the upcoming action need to be comfirmed by the user.

This is a fatal error and the installation process will be terminated.

\contact the author of the application or the installer script and report the problem."

I am using the new installer if that makes any difference?

@sicky

It must be a problem with that new Installer you're using (what's that?), as the standard Installer that comes with AmigaOS doesn't report any problem (and I must have made 100 tests).

At line 113 we have this:

Quote:

(askbool
(prompt "glUAE is already installed in\n\n\"" #t "\":\n\nwhat do you want to do?")
(help)
(choices "Reinstall" "Uninstall")
)


I did provide the help argument, although I left it textless because the question is already 100% self-explaining.

You were right (as ever), used the original installer and no problems whatsoever

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to inform you that only now I have realized that the glUAE_LA script that made it to the release package includes 4 debug lines that I forgot to remove. Just search for Echo 1, Echo 2, Echo 3 and Echo 4 and remove those lines.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Of course, this glitch will not be included in the next release.
