Emulator: Preview to WinUAE 2.3.3
As usual the developers have given a preview to the forthcoming version 2.3.3 of the well-known Amiga emulator WinUAE. WinUAE 2.3.3 will be available in the middle of September and introduce a new VSync-mode which should solve the problem of the a hundred per cent CPU-load.

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.

  • 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.

Fixed bugs:
  • 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.

*) Max Transfer problem was introduced with ATA v2 specification. ROM built-in IDE driver assume ATA v1 behavior, some drives are compatible with ATA v1, some are not and will require Max Transfer fix. It is NOT a drive bug. (cg) (Translation: dr)
