FS-UAE 0.9.12 Released

Changes in version 0.9.12:

  • Configuration option to mount hard drive image/folder read only.
  • Fixed bug where emulation after pause ran too fast in non-full-sync-modes.
  • Added wisegroup_ltd/mp_8866_dual_usb_joypad.ini (courtesy of Foul).
  • Fixed a bug where large positive mouse movement became negative.
  • Event information is written to Synchronization.log during net play (this file can be quite large) -cannot be disabled yet.
  • Include slow memory in memory checksumming (chip + slow, now).
  • Replaced a busy-loop in net play with proper condition signal/wait, using significantly less CPU now.
  • Fixed a race condition in the net play server where input events could be sent to some clients out of order (with regard to frames). This would have caused desync when it occurred.

  • Detect refresh rate properly on Mac OS X.
  • Floppy swapping is performed synchronized in net play mode.

  • Custom gamepad/joystick -> action mapping.
  • Custom keyboard -> action mapping.
  • Support mounting zip files as (read-only) volumes.
  • Read command line arguments earlier (fixes a Configurations dir issue).
  • Renamed “amiga_joystick” config value to “dummy joystick” (more descriptive).
  • Renamed “amiga_mouse” config value to “dummy mouse” (more descriptive).
  • Floppy speed setting was already implemented, but not documented.
  • Finally implemented the volume mute function for OpenAL.
  • Fix execute permissions for directories created on virtual file system.
  • Added support for Xbox 360 cabled controller.
  • Support new path prefixes: $app/ (directory containing executable (Windows) or .app bundle (Mac OS X), $exe/ (directory containing actual executable), and $fsuae/ (the base directory for files – defaults to My Documents/FS-UAE).

Should work out of the box, but note that the button mapping can be wrong if you are running an older release of Linux, in which case you must create a custom config.
