ChrisHRunInUAE r4 released20110311 15:00
Just a quick note that I've finally got around to releasing a non-beta version of RunInUAE r4:

Not much has changed since the last beta:
* The installer no-longer adds 320x240/256 screenmodes when someone is using DDC, since this can have unpredictable effect on Workbench & other screens (because of how OS4 currently works).
* The installer now lists Amiga Forever 2011 as acceptable.
* The manual now clearly says why E-UAE may not be viewable at 320x240, and how to fix this.
* Nicer AmigaGuide manual (better laid out).
* Slightly shorter text in the main window (hopefully more people will now actually read it...).

If you hadn't tried the beta, then these are the other changes since r3:
* Added CD32 emulation! Use "Boot CD32" from the "Control E-UAE" menu.
* E-UAE's Workbench now uses a High-Res screen mode when a 640x480 screen is
used. Much nicer, especially for 68k programs!

* Stopped an occasional RunInUAE start-up crash, which could happen when
patching Workbench.
* Removed the "640x480 (for programs)" menu option, as it was unnecessary.
* Strips the path from WHDLoad & IconX default tooltypes, so now more likely to
work inside E-UAE.

* Removed need for the C:RunInUAE_dummy executable. It will be deleted by the
installer if it exists.
* Rewrote the menu code, which makes it far easier to modify, and also looks a
bit better.

Hi @ ChrisH

* E-UAE's Workbench now uses a High-Res screen mode when a 640x480 screen is used. Much nicer, especially for 68k programs!
Errrr; uuuummmm; please be aware of other program configurations:

Well, here's why i haven't touched RunInUae since your first release! =:o I love James Battle's AIAB 10r.5 and the Scalos Workbench. So, when i went to use RunInUae for the first time to launch AIAB -- Aaarrrggg -- what a nightmare! It would boot-up with Scalos Errors ands me shouting - "what the "F***" goes on now" ! It took a long time to figure out the most obvious problem: AIAB requires a 32bit screen-mode, but I was unaware of that at the time and RunInUae wasn't say anything either - so RunInUae=delete. Being a bit smarter now than then, I may give it another go. The problem with new programs is the configuration and what they are exactly!

Sorry, disregard, figured my problem out.

please be aware of other program configurations:

I'm afraid that I don't understand your explanation of your problem. Can you please try to spell it out a bit simpler? (And also be clear whether you are talking about settings inside or outside the emulated environment.)
PhantomRe: RunInUAE r4 released20110316 22:47  #2922

Thanks, already tested it. Really straight-forward and easy to run an Amiga game. One query though. I tried Speedball 2 but the sound wasn't perfect. Is any solution to that?
ChrisHRe: RunInUAE r4 released20110317 10:24  #2933
You could try reducing the frame rate.

But DAX has found that playing with the "cpu_speed=" setting (e.g. using a value of 8) helps on many games. There was a thread on AW.net with more details. I hope to use some of his settings as default for the next release of RunInUAE.
PhantomRe: RunInUAE r4 released20110317 10:48  #2935

Thanks for the answer. I'll try to do that tonight together with altering some other settings as well.
ChrisHRe: RunInUAE r4 released20110317 12:50  #2940
When playing with cpu_speed settings, don't forget to that in a "per game" config file! You can do this by dropping the game on RunInUAE's window, and telling it to create/edit a Per Game config.
PhantomRe: RunInUAE r4 released20110317 17:20  #2946

Yup, I know that, but thanx anyway. ;-)

I can confirm, that with my settings:

800x600 in scanlines, lores=disabled, correct_aspect_ratio=no

games like Turrican1 run without any graphics or sound slowdowns on my sam440ep/667Mhz.

I tried out lower resolutions, they donīt seem to be faster also without scanlines enabled and look bad on my 1600x1200 native screen.

I also figured out that the scanline-mode drawn the lines like this:

Line1: Mainlinecontent with less luminance
Line2: Mainlinecontent with full luminance
Line3: same like Line1
Line4: Black
Repeat like Line1 with next Line-Content.

Maybe Line 5 is also a black spacer line, its hard to see black line on such high physical resolution.

Shouldnīt it be like this:

Line1: Maincontent with full liminance
Line2: Black
Repeat like Line1 with next Line-Content


Line1: Maincontent with full liminance
Line2: Maincontent with full liminance
Line2: Black
Repeat like Line1 with next Line-Content

Excellent news Chris. I will download and try on my Sam440ep.
