CD32 Image-Name-Bug: "...(bla)[!].zip" -> "...(bla)[" / "...[test].zip" -> "...[tes"

i am using WinUAE 2.5.0 [zip-archive].

I don't know if these bugs are already known.


When i load a CD32 Image in the "Quickstart" menu the displayed filename is correct and not broken:

But when i switch to the "Hard drives" menu the displayed filename is broken like this:

I have to correct this, otherwise CD32 will not find the CD.

The square brackets seems to be the problem here.


When i save these settings in a config file and load it afterward, the displayed filename is broken again.
So, before i can start the Game, i have to correct this first (every time copy/past from "Quickstart" menu to "Hard drives" menu).


When i choose a CD32 Image in the "Hard drives" menu, WinUAE doesn't consider my relative path setup (WinUAE default (EXE directory)) from the "Paths" menu but shows the full path every time.

EDIT: The result in my first example "...(bla)[!].zip" -> "...(bla)[" is not correct... as well as the hole Topic... ecxellent!

This is weird one. Dialog element is identical but the one on harddrives panel truncates the string for some unknown reason..

Ok, do you think that the problem(s) could easily be fixed?

Hi Toni,

today, i can boot the CD32 Image WITH the square brackets in the filename without any problem.

Beside the broken name in the harddrives panel everything is ok now.

I don't know the reason for that, because i can not reproduce the problem from yesterday.

Anyway, thank you for your reply.

And thanks you for this excellent Emulator.

I can still reproduce it and I still have no idea, that combo box GUI element just wants to truncate the text but it has exact same configuration as quickstart combo box..

Time for some glass cleaner for that crystal ball toni, Good luck

Hi Toni,

unfortunately, beside several script languages (html, php, batch, autohotkey), i have no experience in C (yet).

So currently i can only help you with some tests and logic:

I have noticed that this string ][ caused the problem in the combo box in the Hard drives panel (both in filename and foldername).

You say that combo box GUI elements have exactly the same configuration - maybe this difference is not unimportant:

When you change the data in the combo box in the Quickstart panel manually and then switch to an other panel and then go back to the Quickstart panel the changes were NOT SAVED.
When you change the data in the combo box in the Hard drives panel manually and then switch to an other panel and then go back to the Hard drives panel the changes were SAVED.

More strange behavior of the Hard drives panel combo box after panel switch:

Typing: 123]
Result: 123]
Loading Image File: 123]
Result: 123]

Typing: 123][
Result: 123][
Loading Image File: 123][
Result: 12

Typing: 123][4
Result: 12
Loading Image File: 123][4
Result: 12

Typing: Fo][er\123][4
Result: F
Loading Image File: Fo][er\123][4
Result: F

In Winuae 2.3.0 you have implemented the combo box in the Hard drives panel and the same problem also exist there.

Thats it! WinUAE GUI has a hack that uses ][ string to add "help" popups to some buttons and this combobox was also modified.. I completely forgot about it.

Ah, problem found. Great!
