show_led_position ?

Small question Toni :

On the AspireOne netbook (max resolution 1024x600), the power & disk(s) leds are not visible as they are by default placed on the bottom-right of the emulator screen.

I was wondering if, in addition to the "show_leds" & "show_leds_enabled" option, there was an option to define where to display the led ?

If no, is it possible to have an option to place them top-left or top-right ?

I almost forgot about that feature. I was thinking "In which emulator did I see those leds? WinFellow? FSUAE? WinUAE? If it's WinUAE, why can't I find it anymore?". Kitty's post pointed the way. Only it no longer says "LEDs" which was the only keyword I was looking for. It's turned off by default and now just says "Native on-screen display" (under "Miscellaneous"). Very useful in full screen, if floppy drive emulation is set to 100% speed with the sound off and want to know if everything froze or not.

I could have sworn it used to be narrower and have sharp corners. I miss that old look. Can't find any versions of WinUAE older than 3.0 to verify but there is an old screen grab here.

Having more on-screen led options would be very nice indeed.

On screen led bar position configuration. config file only, "osd_position=x:y" 0:0 = default, negative value = offset from top of screen, add % to make it percentage of display height (osd_position=0:95.0%)
But why would it be outside of screen? They are always at the bottom right of screen edge but never outside of screen.

OSD font or style has not been changed. Most likely difference is DirectDraw vs D3D mode. D3D supports proper alpha transparency.

That's quite interesting

...not that I'd ever do it, but if I wanted the LEDs at the top of the screen as opposed to the bottom, then I'd set this:
