Altirra 4.30 Beta XI (10) 16/06/2024

changes:

  • nw

features added:

  • Devices: Added 820 and 1025 printers.

 

bugs fixes:

  • nw

author's comment:

Adds emulation support for the 820 and 1025 printers. Previously, there was only a single HLE printer device, which supported a general feature set interpreting incoming characters at ATASCII. The 820 and 1025 devices emulate the specific character sets supported by those printers, which in the case of 820 is a subset of ASCII and the 1025 is the international ATASCII character set. The Printer Output pane now maps the special characters to Unicode. The unique Sideways mode of the 820 is also supported, though not being able to actually rotate the characters, it at least renders them backwards as the 820 does. 1025 control codes are supported, though some of them like line spacing are ignored.

Also added is low-level emulation of the 820, running the actual 6507-based firmware. This includes rasterization of the actual dot matrix output:

Printer A1025, A820 Emulation

 

There is a simplistic sound emitted for the pins on the print head, though there is currently no sound for the head or paper movement. The print timing and geometry is estimated from the timings and measurements given in the 820 service manual. The output can be saved as a PNG image, at either 96 or 300 dpi, though the right-click context menu. Note that this can create a large image, if you've been printing for a while. A full 96 dpi listing of Nazz, for instance, is 372 x 13657.
When trying this, you'll notice that the printer stops periodically during printing. This is normal and is the anti-overheat mechanism in the firmware. It does slow down long printouts quite a bit.
I have plans for 1025 emulation as well, but need to implement 8051 emulation first.

features added:

  • nw

bugs fixes:

  • Debugger: Fixed panes not adapting properly after debug font change if undocked.
  • IDE: Read Verify command fixed.
  • UI: Fixed internal BASIC option not being selectable for the XEGS.

author's comment:

  • Debugger: Fixed font updates on undocked panes.

  • Fixed incorrect 5200 floating bus and XEGS internal BASIC settings.

Altirra 4.30 Beta V (5) 05/02/2024

Demo gry "Tony" - więcej AtariOnLine

changes:

  • nw

features added:

  • Debugger: Ctrl+Alt+click now reports scrolling offsets, pixel addresses, and VBXE information.
  • Debugger: Added .vbxe_xdlhistory command.

bugs fixes:

  • VBXE: Overlay and attribute map addressing are no longer reset at vertical blank.
  • CPU: Fixed incorrect LDA (zp) and STA (zp) execution in 65C02 mode only.

author's comment:

  • Added a cvar to apply a one-line vertical offset to the VBXE XDL in NTSC: devices.vbxe.ntsc_vertical_offset. It delays the XDL start from line 8 to line 9. This is disabled by default for now until we get more confirmation in the other thread.
  • Fixed LDA (zp) instruction in 65C02 mode only.
  • VBXE no longer resets overlay and attribute map addressing on vertical blank.
  • Debugger: Added .vbxe_xdlhistory command.
  • Debugger: Expanded Ctrl+Alt+click information. It now shows exact byte address at point, current value of that address (best effort), and also shows XDL and attribute map information for VBXE.

 

 

 

 

Altirra 4.30 Beta IV (4) 30/01/2024

changes:

  • nw

features added:

  • Display: Added support for deinterlacing interlaced video.

bugs fixes:

  • Cassette: Fixed a crash that could occur when loading raw tape audio.
  • CPU: Fixed incorrect STA (zp) execution in 65C02 mode only.
  • Debugger: Register (r) command can now set S high byte in 65C816 native mode.
  • Disk: Adjusted ATX density detection to allow for enhanced density disks with no non-boot sectors on track 0.
  • UI: Added workaround for blank window label on Windows 11 taskbar.

author's comment:

  • Fix for BRK flags push in 65C816 native mode (attempt 2).
  • Debugger register (r) command can now set full 16-bit S register in native mode.
  • Fixed STA (zp) instruction being broken only in 65C02 mode.
  • Added video deinterlacing option.
    The deinterlacer is just a very simple auto-switch between bob and weave for areas of the screen based on a motion mask, no fancy ELA or mocomp. The effect is similar to what you see from some TVs that don't have true support for noninterlaced video and force-interlace the Atari's output.
  • Workaround for empty label in Windows 11 taskbar (which is broken AF).
  • Fixed a crash when loading some raw audio tapes.
  • Tweaked ATX density detection to prevent false 1050 Duplicator DD detection with ED disks that have only boot sectors on track 0.

Altirra 4.30 Beta III (3) 24/01/2024

Dungeon Adventurer (2024, Next Generation)

changes

  • nw

features added:

  • UI: Added option to force program to efficiency or performance cores.
  • UI: Added tool to scan for global hotkeys that block keyboard mappings.

bugs fixes:

  • nw

author's comment:

  • Fixed crash with some error dialogs.
  • Added support for forcing the program to performance or efficiency cores.
  • Added tool in the keyboard customization and shortcut dialogs to scan for global hotkeys.
  • The performance/efficiency core selection will only work if you have a CPU with hybrid CPU cores. YMMV; it has some serious stuttering problems on my x64 device but no issues on the ARM64. It is the same as forcing CPU affinity, as the CPU sets API turned out to be ineffective (as in, it did absolutely nothing).

Rant about global hotkeys: It seems that almost any program these days feels entitled to commandeer random global keyboard shortcuts without warning, messing up other programs. The hall of shame includes: Macrium Reflect (Ctrl+Alt+M), Alienware Command Center (Ctrl+Shift+Y), and the winner, Intel Arc Control Panel with the ridiculous and unchangeable Alt+I and Alt+O keys. Some of these programs also fail to unregister global hotkeys even if you've disabled them in the UI, which leaves the corresponding key shortcuts simply inexplicably broken. There is also no way built into Windows to tell that this is happening. So now Altirra can tell you if another program is doing this.
