Javascript: Scripted Amiga Emulator 0.8.3
Already in March, version 0.8.3 of the Scripted Amiga Emulator was made available, which was originally released more than three years ago.

Rupert Hausberger's Scripted Amiga Emulator was written in Javascript and and should run with all modern web browsers, but is highly recommended for Chrome.

Changes in version 0.8.3:
  • Audio
    • Fixed a heavy bug i added myself around v0.6-0.7 on the seek for other bugs. Big thanks to 'Ralf Sommer'
    • Dropped usage of the ring-buffer and wrote a new and faster queue-buffer
    • The audio-data is now first sampled at 15.65KHz and then resampled to the rate of the soundcard. This does reduce internal CPU-usage
    • Removed 'Audio/Samplerate' in the GUI, because it's no longer used
  • Events
    • Fixed a bug in combination with frameskip
    • Frameskip is now disabled by default
  • Common
    • Updated AROS-ROMs to actual version SVN50213

Jump'n Run: Final version of "Zerosphere"
In "Zerosphere" (Youtube video) the surrounding area of the player is highly blurred. Only if the player "blinks" by pushing the fire button of the joystick, it is possible to see the real dimension.

In August a pre-version was released. Now at the demo party "Under Construction", the final version of the game has been released which according to the author provides "lot of bug fixing and new features". (cg) (Translation: dr)
