Angry only 8-bit ?

Hi,

i use WinUAE 0.8.22 R1. After clicking 'Detect 16-bit Pixel Format' the Amiga screen resolution is set to 800x600, 8-bit.
I can only switch VSync on/off or change the refreshrates to 50, 60 or 85 Hz.

My OS is Win2000. Desktop is set at 1024x768, 32-bit. I fixed the monitor frequencies with NVRefreshTool at 85 Hz in all screen resolutions. Is this the problem or why i can't switch in WinUAE to another resolution or bit depth?

Are you sure? That's insane.

In the list of resolutions, you've tried scrolling right down, yes?

I reinstalled Win2000 and now i can choose again every resolution and bit depth. I don't know what was wrong.

Well, that's a strange one. It'd be nice to know what the problem was exactly, in case anyone is in the same situation.

When you reinstalled, did you reinstall the SAME video card drivers (version-wise)?

After reinstalling win2000 i installed only the detonator 30.82.
On the previous win2000 installation i had many detonators drivers installed and uninstalled, like the damn 40.xx betadriver. And i played around with a lot of tweak tools.
Sorry, i can't say what exactly caused the problem.

Thumbs down

I'm having a similar problem.

First off, I'm new to this Amiga emulator thing. That may be my first problem. I've downloaded various configuration files to allow me to load some of my old favorite games (Defender of the Crown, Barbarian, etc.). Some work, some don't, all look like they're lacking in video resolution and/or color. My biggest problem seems to be that I can't choose the display setting from the scroll down menu. Mine is greyed out and stuck on 800x600 8bit mode. Everything else on that tab is selectable.

I'm using the latest version of WinUAE - 0.8.22 R1 on an Athlon 2000+, NVIDIA Geforce4 Ti 4400 (Det 30.82), WinXP sp1 based system.

I've clicked the detect 16-bit pixel format button, but after it's config dance, nothing changes.

Any clue people?

One last question, let's say I get everything running smoothly with all the bells and whistles ringing...will my games look like they did on my old A500 system? clean and crisp. or am I hoping for too much?


P.S. I sure miss my Amiga 500. I hope the kid I sold it to years ago got some great use out of her.

Try fullscreen and you should be able to select other screen modes.

Note: This also only did work after my new Win 2000 installation.
