WinFellow v0.5.4 released

We are proud to announce the release of a new WinFellow version. Compared to the earlier release 0.5.3.1004, this release provides the following:

Project hosting:
  • WinFellow development has found a new home on GitHub; the website is accessible via the URL http://petschau.github.io/WinFellow/; it is still being developed by the same team. Our former SourceForge file repository, aswell as the website fellow.sourceforge.net, will still be maintained for a while to keep earlier releases available. For future updates, please check the new GitHub website.

New features:
  • re-designed display settings to make use of modern higher resolution displays more intuitive; instead of conguring a window resolution, scaling and overscan area can be congured automatically to create a window of the optimal size and scaling factor; both can also be congured manually to arrive at frequently window sizes
  • support for the Direct3D 11 graphics API; this requires DirectX 11 to be installed
    • on Windows Vista, the platform update (KB971644) should be installed, as it contains required updates to DirectX
  • the graphics card has to provide hardware acceleration for Direct3D
  • ability to save screenshots to the pictures folder (hit <Print Screen> to trigger)
  • support for automatic, as well as 3x and 4x scaling, which is useful for 4K/high DPI displays; for the best results, try leaving the scaling at automatic
  • very basic serial port/UART emulation; nothing can be connected to the serial port; this is mostly used for serial debug logging (which is active only in debug builds of WinFellow), but the port is always being emulated
Bug fixes:
  • improved frame timing to present frames in a more evenly paced manner
  • improvements to CIA timer handling
  • improvements to CPU instruction timing (TAS and PEA instructions)
  • fixed sound volume restoration during reset of Amiga session in Amiga Forever
  • improved error handling for DMS floppy image extraction
  • fixed minor memory leaks
Please see the included file ChangeLog.txt for a full list of changes, including minor bug fixes which are not listed above.

That's great. I remember using a version of this a looooooooong time ago. It was always a bit quicker than the competition (at the time).

Hello, thanks for the new version. Will you add harddisk boot for Kickstart 1.3 in the next version? Please!

Thank you,
Marcy

DX9 support? For us that want to run it on old XP machine.

Also CD ROM and AROS m68k support will be good.

WinFellow is back?!

Good news! Was 1st choice for Stuff which had to be *fast* way back. But we had slow PCs then. I fear it's outdated by WinUAE now. Hard to keep up.
Nevertheless, thumbs up!
