Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.9

After upgrading to the latest kernel and fully updating the rest of the system packages as well, I found that applications using SDL2 with an OpenGLES 2 back end no longer work. SDL2 fails to initialize mentioning that it found no display devices. This happens regardless if I enable or disable the O...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Yes, the arguments are the same. The master branch is very close to Chips' version, the SDL2 branch is currently being updated to match WinUAE (which also takes the same arguments from the command line, plus a few more).

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

You can rename the executable to anything you want of course, it will still work :)

I'll have to check and test the mapping issue you mentioned, it sounds like a bug.

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

In my SDL2 port, that happens "automagically" :)

The master branch contains the SDL1 version, as the SDL2 version (which can be found in the "sdl2" branch) is still under development. Once it's done, it will replace the older SDL1 one on the master branch.

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Hi all First up let me say a big thanks for all of your work on this great project, especially Chips. I was able to build and run the latest version on an RPi3 with minimal problems. One comment about installation - I had issues installing in place of my existing UAE4ARM installation because the co...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Hello Midwan, thanks for your answer ! This is really a great news for the libretro integration it will really simplify everything I've seen you're contributing to uae4arm-rpi github also so any chances to see custom modifications made for amiberry coming into uae4arm-pi one day ? And how do you re...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

The controller mapping is something that needs some love, so we're currently undergoing a rewrite in that area on the Amiberry version. We just finished porting it to SDL2, so it's a good opportunity to rewrite that portion and make it better. We're also looking into using the libretro API (as a sep...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Hmm, upon further testing I found out that although the Ctrl-A-A combination does not work for me, the Ctrl-LA-Menu does indeed cause a reset. :) The HDF problem seems to be related to the size/type of the HDF, since smaller ones do work correctly. And I have reports that the one I'm testing worked ...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Indeed, with double buffering enabled the display updates much smoother now. And with the latest audio fixes we finally got rid of those annoying "buffer underrun" errors when quitting. :) The JIT changes seem to be causing glitches in the benchmarking tools though, which wasn't the case in previous...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

@Chips-fr: BTW, I also noticed that the last changes made the emulator slower. I tested it rather quickly (so no thorough, multi-level tests) using SysSpeed for example: The CPU mark comes out significantly lower than the older builds, losing about 20 MIPS on average. There's definitely something go...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been a little busy with other projects lately so this was delayed. I haven't given up on it yet though. :) I run into some problems with the SDL2 port, which I wasn't able to fix yet. The emulator config screen shows up pretty much OK using SDL2 and Guisan (an S...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Thanks for sharing, I'll give this approach a try. Although it might not be necessary under SDL2, I'll have to check. I haven't made many tests with audio yet. No, I don't have the changes in any publicly available repo. The changes I made were quite simple * in sd-pandora/sound.h, change the number...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

I didn't experiment much with the audio yet, but on the SDL2 tests I've made so far, it seems to work better.
There are no buffer underruns mentioned (which happens whenever you switch resolution or quit the emulator currently) for example.

Nice! :)

The way I see it, the more people get involved the better. Eventually forks that don't continue to develop will die, but those that remain should give us a better product.
