FS-UAE 2.5.15dev Released

A new development version has been released. Changes in FS-UAE 2.5.15dev:

  • FS-UAE memory options are more clever, and can take arguments as both KB or MB (with recommended explicit K/M suffix). For example, for memory options which are always in MB, 8M == 8192K == 8192 == 8.
  • Flexible value matching for choice-based FS-UAE configuration options (i.e. cyberstorm-ppc == CyberStormPPC)
  • New model A4000/PPC (auto-enables CyberStorm PPC).
  • New model A4000/OS4 (CyberStorm PPC, Picasso IV, default to onboard SCSI).
  • New options graphics_card and graphics_card_memory (supercedes uaegfx_card).
  • New options accelerator, accelerator_rom, graphics_card_rom.
  • New –workbench option useful for command line testing (automatically inserts an appropriate wb disk in DF0).
  • Show GUI warning when floppy_drive_x files are not found.
  • Enabled A500/512K model (same as A500 but without slow RAM).
  • Enabled A4000 model (68030, 3.1 ROM, 2MB Chip + 8 MB Fast).
  • Added .bin extension to internal FS-UAE rom scanner.
  • More code cleanup / fixes, reduces compiler warnings.
  • Enabled floating point control.
  • Updated emulation core from WinUAE 2900b16.
  • Fixed bug when adding 2nd fast memory bank in non-autoconfig mode.
  • Allow 1 to be used as true/yes for boolean uae_* options.
  • Removed cpu_idle override, added new cpu_idle option (0 – 10).
  • Implemented support for growable VHD hard drive images.
  • Added proper error message when libcapsimage plugin is missing.
  • Use new dlopen plugin interface to load ppc and libcapsimage plugins.

Known issues:

  • The PearPC fallback may not work properly. Please make sure you are using the qemu-uae plugin (check in fs-uae.log.txt that it is loaded properly) if you’re having problems.
  • AmigaOS 4.1 w/Picasso IV => sometimes weird frame rate (~36 FPS).
  • When starting FS-UAE from FS-UAE Launcher, accelerator flashs ROM writes are not persistent because the launcher uses a new copy every time.
  • Booting CD32 with CD inserted works, but inserting later, or eject + re-insert does not seem to work right now.
  • Booting A1000 to kickstart screen does not work. Broke in FS-UAE 2.5.9dev / WinUAE 2.9.0 beta 9.

Changes in FS-UAE Launcher 2.5.15dev:

  • Added awareness of required ROMs for Picasso IV, Cyberstorm PPC.
  • Added new models A4000/PPC, A4000/OS4, A4000, A500/512K.
  • Added .bin extension to rom scanner (useful for Picasso IV ROM).
