FS-UAE 1.2.0 Released

I am pleased to announce version 1.2.0 of FS-UAE, the multi-platform Amiga emulator for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X! FS-UAE 1.2 can be downloaded here.

Notable changes since version 1.0 include:

  • Great rendering performance improvements, especially on slower hardware.
  • OpenGL renderer compatible with older GPUs (only requires OpenGL 1.1 now).
  • Input devices and options can be changed in the menu while running FS-UAE.
  • UAEGFX card (“Picasso 96”) is implemented.
  • Added A4000/040 model, running in fastest possible mode.
  • Support for mounting CD images for all Amiga models (built-in CDFS and CD image switcher in menu).
  • Fullscreen/window mode switching with Alt+Enter, better fullscreen handling.
  • Better net play support (show dialog while connecting, will retry connecting until successful, continue in offline mode if connection to server is broken).
  • A1200 model can be used in net play mode with accuracy < 1.
  • UAE core code updated from WinUAE 2.4.0.
  • Advanced options for tweaking vsync method.
  • Common host options can be specified once in Host.fs-uae config file.
  • Many other fixes and improvements.

Please see the release notes for more information about this release and a detailed list of changes. Also, many thanks to everyone who has been testing the development versions and reported bugs and issues!

Progress Report on FS-UAE

High-color and high-resolution Workbench screen with Picasso 96 driver installed

Since version 1.0 was released, there has been a couple of bug fix releases and the latest stable version is now 1.0.2. I have been adding more documentation and recently also wrote a getting started guide.

The new development versions (“betas”) have introduced support for Picasso96 and have many other improvements, including performance improvements.

Also, the most recent development versions are compatible with older OpenGL drivers/cards, so if you have problems displaying the menu on your computer, you should try the latest development version!
