WinUAE 4.3.0

WinUAE 4.3.0 (19.12.2019) released. http://www.winuae.net/

New features/improvements:

- GUI high DPI support rewritten.
- Lagless vsync stability improvements.
- Added Trojan light gun preset to Game ports panel.
- On the fly chipset model switching compatibility improved.
- SPTI CD/DVD access mode now internally emulates all CD audio commands. All other commands are forwarded to the drive like previously.
- PCMCIA hot swap support improved. (PCMCIA SRAM and IDE needs to be set again if previously configured)
- My CPU tester detected edge cases, bugs and undocumented CPU behavior updates implemented. (More details in separate CPU tester note later)
- More compatible partition HDF default geometry calculation if size is 1000M or larger.
- CD32 pad does not anymore disable joystick second button if both CD32 and 2-button joystick is active simultaneously.
- Host directory/archive drag and drop to WinUAE window now supports mounting multiple items simultaneously.
- Debugger disassembler fixes and few very rarely used instructions dissemble now correctly.

Bugs fixed:

- Disk index pulses were not being generated when disk was being written (Cadaver v0.1 save disk writing)
- CDTV audio CD playing state restore fixed.
- A2024 monitor didn't show full viewable area.
- 24-bit uaegfx RTG mode had random wrong color pixels in some situations.
- nrg CD images didn't load correctly in relative path mode.
- Graphics glitch in some programs that also depended on display scaling/size (for example Alien Breed 3D)
- Disk swapper path modifications did nothing while emulation was running.
- Restoring CD32 or CDTV statefile with CD audio playing: start playing immediately, do not include normal CD audio start delays.
- Fixed possible crash when PPC emulation stopped emulated sound card audio.
- Quite special kind of CD32 pad button read code was not emulated correctly.

Other changes:

- Added separate 68000-68060 CPU tester/validator project based on UAE CPU core generator.
- Removed all 68020 cycle-exact CPU mode internal idle cycles. It mainly slowed down the CPU too much and didn't match real world well enough.

New emulated hardware:

- Archos Overdrive HD (PCMCIA IDE adapter)
- ICD Trifecta (A500 IDE/SCSI controller)
- M-Tec Mastercard (SCSI expansion for M-Tec T1230 A1200 accelerator)
- Scala MM dongles

and more.

[bug reports in this thread will be ignored.]

Oh yeah!!!

The best Christmas present ever if you're an Amiga enthusiast.

I know I always say this, but thank you Master Wilen for all you continued 24 / 7 support 365 days a year.

WinUAE is without doubt the leading Amiga emulator; and it wouldn't be without someone as knowledgeable as you both hardware / software wise and the skills to bring this to Windows

Simply amazing. I've been following winuae development ever since Brian King was the maintainer. I remember downloading 0.8.8 in 1999! I wonder how much of his code is still present after all those years.

Toni, you forgot to mention one very awesome aesthetic change in the notes for v4.3.0, related to the "Boxart" panel...

The inclusion of the "configuration file" name; instead of just being "WinUAE"

Thank you Toni once again for a great product!

I just realised something, for the x64 version (inside the .zip directory) there is only "winuae64.exe" and loading this seems to run WinUAE 64-bit on the fly. Is this meant to be the case as I do not know where it is storing the configs etc. The 32-bit version has the relevant folders inside already?
