Excellent

I'm hesitant to do this by default, since that would interfere with Amiga software requiring you to use the keys in question. Something like F12 + 1 is of course OK (perhaps that's what you meant). I'll probably add more shortcuts in the future. Until then, you can actually configure this yourself.

Code:
keyboard_key_1 = action_restore_state_1
See http://fs-uae.net/input-mapping and http://fs-uae.net/input-actions for more details. You can put these options in custom settings in FS-UAE Launcher.

I have never seen this issue. For me, save states have always loaded instantly. This must be a bug of some kind. Does the screen appear after 5-10 seconds (or so) by itself if you don't touch anything?

Obviously there are plenty of shaders out there but it would be of assistance if in the instructions an example could be provided of the command to type to load a shader.
I should create an official doc page for shaders on fs-uae.net, but until then, this forum thread contains the information you need. I don't create these shaders myself (apart from some new scanline shaders I have been playing with in the dev versions), the bundled ones are open-source shaders from the net. It should be relatively simple to modify the curvature shader to for example add some horizontal blurring to the Amiga output before it is processed further.

It is actually FS-UAE Game Center which is renamed to FS-UAE Arcade. If you download the development version, you'll also get FS-UAE Arcade (only works in combination with the online database). You can safely install the development version, it is quite good

This use case is not currently covered by FS-UAE (unless you happened to have the other game disks added to the floppy swap list).

It is slightly complicated, as FS-UAE has config which is not stored in the save state itself. So for the foreseeable future, FS-UAE probably will not support this.

I actually did this a while ago . Check out the development version -It only does it on startup btw, I guess it could be somewhat annoying with save states if the state loads right into some heavy action.

Glad to hear it
