version 0.30b 1 aug 2005

! fixed bug in TV+noflic [fb AlCo]
+ video filters menu on F4 / SHIFT-F4
! fixed general sound BASS mode: sound effects not played (bug since ver 0.28)
! OSD GS led continue show volume after sample stop for looped samples
! fixed bug in frame resampler - crash on full border mode [fb Alex/AT]
! fixed bug in frame resampler that caused additional flicker
* better contrast in frame resampler (less frames to mix => more contrast)
+ frame resampler works with all renders, for slow (less then 600mhz)
machines use 8-bit ddraw driver. it is b/w and does not use MMX
probably there are bugs with ddraw/ddrawh. ddrawt/blt/ovr work fine
@ for LCD monitors, pls use refresh=60 with "frame resampler": LCDs can't
switch pixels so fast and picture worse with higher rates
* added SMUC version ports (#5FBA & #5FBE) [sb deathsoft]
* border (port #FE) not cleared on reset [sb deathsoft]
+ KAY-256/1024: himem,ROMs (note that ROMs in the net have invalid pages order)
- scorpion port #1FFD decoded as in real scheme. pentagon soft may not work
* some changes in overlay render (may not work on old vcards, i don't care)
! removed unnecessary screen mode switches when entering monitor
+ modem: speccy able to control transfer mode and rate [code by Alex/AT]
! modem: fixed bug - could read trash byte from input buffer [fb Alex/AT]
+ IDE/ATAPI cdrom (needs physical drive or windows-level emulated device)

version 0.31b 24 aug 2005

+ new funny led shows R/W/X dynamic in spectrum memory [sb Raider]
+ keyboard shortcuts in windowed mode: Alt-1, Alt-2, Alt-3
+ 4x scale video filter [sb Shiru Otaku] (set minres=1024 to avoid 1280x960)
+ shows condition hit and jp/ret/call direction in trace window [sb Dexus]
+ monitor: Alt-F9 shows only ray-painted screen area
+ monitor: Alt-S cycles through watches / screen dump / ray-painted
- monitor: mon.render hotkey is deleted (as obsolete)
* monitor: detection internal loop exit when tracing loop on F8 [sb Dexus]
+ monitor: fill memory with pattern [sb Raider]
* FDD & FDC code comletely rewritten, bugs may appear
! when saving disk image, prefer original format as default, not TRD
! CacheVox works fine with [BETA128]Fast=0. no other emul can handle this yet
! better WD1793 sector write emulation (overwrite old gap and data AM)
+ monitor: more fields in beta128 panel (see docs)
@ visual ini-file editor available at
version 0.32b 4 sep 2005
+ monitor: jump destination marked with arrow [sb Dexus]
+ ini option "HighPriority"
+ non-bluring scale 2x,3x,4x, developed in AdvanceMAME project (MMX-rewritten)
@ scale3x is not MMX-vectorized and slower then scale4x
@ if your monitor displays only up to 1024x768, use border=none for scale4x
! better FDD emulation: BestView works with [beta128]fast=0 [fb Kubas]
! temporary hacks in scorpion trdos replaced accordingly to scheme
! better FDC emulation: adjusted timeouts in fast=1 mode
@ [beta128]IL is 2 by default in INI: speed-up #3D13 loaders in fast=0 mode
! no crash on 1280x1024 scrshots: dynamic buffer size

version 0.32b2 21 sep 2005

! fixed bug in FDD delays [fb Kubas]
* some changes in multicolor renderer [sb AlCo]
* Pentagon-1024: #7FFD.5 is a 48k mode lock when #EFF7.2=1 [sb AlCo]
* color console output
* AdvMAME scale 2x,4x optimized for SSE2

version 0.33b 7 dec 2005

+ complete emulation of ATM-TURBO 4.50 [thanks to Doronetty and Max Timonin]

version 0.35b 22 jul 2006

! Z80: fixed flags after ADD IX/IY,SP instruction
! Z80: fixed undoc flags after LDI(R)/LDD(R)
! Z80: fixed undoc flags after CPI(R)/CPD(R)
- Z80: undoc flags for IN<I|D>[R] / OUT<I|D>[R] not ready yet
! Z80: MEMPTR implemented (as described in boo_boo & Kladov research)
! anti-text64 now works in ATM-TURBO models [fb AlCo]
