Some VMWare type functionality

I know that this may not be possible (or that it may have already been done - i just havent found it!) - but I would really like to see VMWare Additions type functionality. Such as when running in Windowed mode the ability to move the mouse seamlessly between WB and WinUAE, resizing the WinUAE window resizes the WB desktop, and some drag and drop functionality for transferring between WB and Windoze!

Anyone out there up to the challenge?

check 'magic mouse' in misc panel
Dragging into winuae has been possible for quite a while, the other way around hasn't been implemented and will most likely never be
Resizing amiga resolution on the fly will probably need a mayor rewrite of the rtg.library and patches of other system functions
And with picasso96 not being open source i don't see this becoming easy.

Is it possible to drag n drop adf images to the floppy status indicators at the bottom of the window? (I'm at work so I can't try at the moment)

Drag and drop??

Just use Directory for HD and drag and drop works.

I want WinUAE that will open me beer, the same as my 'amiga' did at the time.

It would be nice to be able to resize her as well.

"Seamless" RTG: IF Picasso96 (or CyberGfx) sources will be released someday, the plan is to make totally seamless "RTG" emulation where Windows desktop = Workbench screen, all Amiga windows (including Workbench window) appear as normal windows on Windows desktop.

That would be awesome!

Is there any way to stop the pointer sticking as I move it out of the WB screen? It bugs the hell out of me!

That would be really great.
What are the chances of persuading authors to release the source?Maybe via online petition or something similar?

I don't know or really care (non-code/technical problem = not my problem) but I know I won't support online petitions, ever.

Can you set one up? I think it would be brilliant for the Amiga community!
