New or old version of P96?

Hi all, stepping into RTG for the first time and wondering if I should use the old V2 version of P96 or the new V3 one? I will be running on my PC and my PI400. Happy to pay for the V3 version, just want to be sure it is going to benefit my setups in some way.

Free one works fine, try it first and see what you think. You can always buy the newer one later if inclined to do so.

Free version works fine, new version has "only" some fixes and screen dragging support (which also needs newer winuae, because UAE driver is UAE built-in)

IMO new version is more useful for real hardware users (or if you use emulated RTG boards, not uaegfx) because it also includes updated/fixed/improved hardware drivers.

As I only emulate, I still use the free version Picasso96 2.1e.

No need for me to purchase the latest version; as I wouldn't use screen dragging anyway.

I bought the new version to support future development. €15 is nothing.

Thumbs up

not sure about emulation but the updated version by iComp is well worth the money on real machines! It's sweet to have screen dragging on my 1200 Tower and also happy to support any new/future updates
