A beta version of FS-UAE 2.4 (2.3.99beta1) is now available! Please see the preliminary release notes for FS-UAE 2.4 for information about what’s new – and a couple of useful things to know when you are upgrading.

FS-UAE 2.2.3 Released

An update to FS-UAE 2.2 has been released. Changes in FS-UAE 2.2.3:

  • On windows, read file name (as program parameter) with MBCS encoding (CP_ACP) so paths with non-ASCII characters are handled correctly.

  • (Launcher) Fix slash direction in default search directory on Windows so it does not look weird.

New Domain Name

The FS-UAE project has its own domain name now: fs-uae.net 🙂

http://fengestad.no/fs-uae/ will redirect to http://fs-uae.net/ for the foreseeable future (possibly forever), but if you do have permanent links to the FS-UAE home page / download page on your web site, I would appreciate it if you would update those links (either now, a bit later, or at least eventually :)). Please also let me know if you find an old URL which is not redirected properly.

FS-UAE 2.2.2 Released

An update to FS-UAE 2.2 has been released. Changes in FS-UAE 2.2.2:

  • With video_sync = auto, allow some slack when deciding to enable full sync or not (accept host refresh rate 49 instead of just 50, ..).
