WinUAE 2.3.3 released

New features:

- New very low latency VSync mode, autodetects real refresh rate, no more 100% CPU usage, supports also windowed modes. (Not compatible with fastest possible CPU modes but planned in future)
- Experimental rawinput joystick/joypad support. (-rawhid command line parameter) Added because DirectInput is said to introduce some extra input lag.

Updates:

- Real cause for Max Transfer IDE problem found. IDE emulation detects and logs it now.
- CD image audio buffer increased slightly, some systems had glitches in CD audio.
- Non-configured joystick/mouse autoswitch update: short firebutton press or move left = insert into joystick port, longer press or move right = insert into mouse port.
- Add Harddrive option does not require Administrator privileges anymore, most removable drives can be used without higher privileges, at least under Windows 7.

Bug fixes:

- IDE emulation write hang introduced in 2.3.2.
- A590/A2091 emulation crash if CPU was 68020+.
- On the fly CD switching (both images and real CDs) reliability improved.
- Direct3D blank screen problem is now 100% fixed. Really.
- win32.hardfile_path didn't work.
- On the fly resolution change didn't work correctly, resolution autoswitch improved.
- Key or joystick button mapped to mouse direction didn't work.
- Analog stick mapped to mouse had too fast and unstable speed.

and more..

Thanks!

Had a couple of problems though, but not serious once I figured out the causes:

My main system failed to boot completely, removing P96refresh from my startup cured this. Is P96refresh obsolete?

Tested a more basic setup to figure out what was causing the first problem, it booted fine but none of the disk icons could be clicked on. Then I realized that the display had been squashed and clicking in the black area to the left of the icons worked. This was in full window mode with a display smaller than my actual resolution. Switching to window mode worked as usual.

Thank you. I know it will be a long time, but what can we expect in WinUAE 2.3.4?

Can this 2.3.3 be used for preparation of CF cards as hard drives ?

It was possible to do this with the older versions too!
Do you know the "-disableharddrivesafetycheck" option?
