Emulation News 278: Updates for 1-29-12


Here are the news for today! ^_^ Happy Sunday!

WinUAE v2.4.0 Beta 14

"- Input panel qualifier key/button support. I think this was requested many many years ago.
(I didn't originally plan to do this now but someone reminded me few days ago..)
* - Any key or button can be configured as a qualifier (like a shift or control key that modifies behavior of other keys)
* - Any Input Target can be configured to require qualifiers. Input Target only triggers if it's Input Source and all configured qualifiers are active at the same time.
* - If multiple slots are configured, only slot(s) that have matching qualifier will be triggered, for example if slot 1 has qualifier and slot 2 has none: Only slot 2 triggers if Input Source matches without qualifier active and only slot 1 if Input Source matches with active qualifier.
* - Same qualifer code (1-8) can be configured to more than one key/button.
* - Qualifier(s) set to any other types than keys or buttons is currently undefined.
* - End ("*" in GUI), Shift, Alt and Control keys are mapped to built-in qualifiers.
* - Most previously hardwired key mappings (END+F1 etc..) are now implemented using Input qualifier system
* -- Exceptions: F12 so that there is no way for users to accidentally disable GUI access. END+ and END+ disk swapper and statefile shortcuts, I didn't want to add 30+ new mostly pointless input targets.. Disabled if END-key's qualifier flag is removed.
* - Qualifiers and custom events: slots 1 to 4 and 5 to 8 can have different qualifiers.

- Doubled number of input target slots (4 to 8)
- "Copy from"-button corrupted memory.
- Added keyboard default options to "Copy from"-button. Can select either Amiga or PC default mapping.
- TODO: restore only single input target to default.

- Less than 35Hz vsync display refresh rate: show only every other frame.
- Workaround for strange Windows feature or a bug. First call raw input RegisterRawInputDevices() to unregister HID devices and then immediately call to register them again: Windows randomly stops reporting HID events.
- Windows to Amiga clipboard sharing wrong string size if string contained cr/lf line endings.
- Low latency VSync screen mode switch fixes and updates.
- Native code execution (winlauch.alib etc..) is not anymore allowed by default. Option in misc panel.

Ootake v2.64

"- At setting of "Option" button in the start window, "MiddleLight" button
was added. If your PC power isn't enough, please use this.
- At "TV Mode" and "Horizonal Scanlined" mode (Setting->Screen menu), the
image quality setting of default was changed. The density of scanlines was
changed to 70% from 30%.
- At 640x480FullScreen, Horizonal Scanlined (& TV Mode) and Full-Stretched
Mode, the image quality was improved. * At this mode, a stretch of screen
isn't performed. The FullScreen is drawn with drawing of overscan area.
- The speed and timing were brought close to the movement of a real machine.
In "Circuslide", The problem that BGM occasionally fell into disorder was
solved.
- The processing of switching to full-screen has been improved. (
correspondence to older PC environment)
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.
+ The execution file for "Windows 98/Me" was opened to the public. The
operation test is not done. Please see "Readme98.txt" in the ZIP file
about details and notes, etc.
http://www.ouma.jp/file/Ootake264-for98.zip
+ I began Twitter. (Japanese language)
http://twitter.com/kitao_n

* The happiness of the game is the world human race commonness. It longs for
peace.
* I think that it cannot do improvement & correction of the above-mentioned
if there are many neither operation report nor defect report. Thank you
really for you who reported."
