Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM

4.0.0 bugs fixed:

* Enabled "Minimize when focus is lost" option caused crash in some situations.
* 64-bit FPU mode always changed back to 80-bit if config file was loaded.
* 80-bit native FPU mode FREM and FMOD returned wrong results.
* RTG statefile restore didn't restore screen state completely.

Other bugs fixed:

* "Minimize when focus is lost" incorrectly activated when switching modes in some situations.
* "Minimize when focus is lost" minimized main emulation window when GUI was open and main window lost focus.
* If CPU panel FPU mode select menu was active and then some other panel was opened: JIT was switched off.
* CD audio play from real/virtual CD (not from directly mounted image file) didn't restart correctly if audio settings changed.
* Only some emulated SCSI controllers flashed CD led when emulating a CD drive.
* input.keyboard_type was always read as Amiga keyboard. If PC layout was set as default, keyboard layout was read incorrectly from config file.
* Amiga reset during active RTG rendering in RTG Multithread mode could have caused a crash.
* RTG Multithread mode display refreshing was unreliable in 8-bit modes when palette changed.
* Finally fixed corrupted drag and drop graphics in Harddrives and Disk Swapper panel.
* When inserting previously connected USB input device, previous device type (Gamepad, CD32 pad etc) and autofire mode (if any) was not restored.
* Clipboard sharing could have attempted to transfer data to Amiga side after program had taken over the system, possibly overwriting memory.

New features:

* Environmental variables (%variable%) in paths are not anymore resolved immediately when config is loaded but only when needed without modifying original path, preserving original path if config file is saved again.
* Added full statefile absolute/relative path support. Loading statefile will restore correct paths even if absolute/relative path mode was changed after saving the statefile.
* D3D9 and D3D11 VSync mode (both lagless and standard) 100/120Hz support with optional black frame insertion.
* 68060 FPU was not disabled after soft reset if 68060 was configured without emulated 68060 accelerator board, causing reset loop.

New emulated expansions:

* QuikPak 4060

Greetings and welcome to a short showcase of the Amiga 2500 HD RETR-O-MAT edition.
Here we like to give you a small insight about the Project that basicly founded the Team RETR-O-MAT. We started with a plain Amiga 2000 and worked us up to a Amiga 2500 with different very expensive expansions in it.
