[ATARI] ST/Falcon:Hatari 2.2.0

No i mamy kolejną wersje tego świetnego emulatora dużych, 16-bitowych komputerów ATARI - począwszy od modeli ATARI ST/TT a skończywszy na ATARI FALCON. Hatari 2.1.0. Jak zwykle z pokaźną ilością zmian i poprawek.

hAtari Version 2.2.0 (2019-01-31)

Compiling with SDL 1.2 is considered as deprecated now. The support for SDL 1.2 will be dropped in a future release. Hatari now requires a C compiler compatible with c99/gnu99

 

Emulation:

  • CPU:
    • CPU core updated to WinUAE 4.1.0
    • Fix 68030 MMU PTEST/FSAVE/FRESTORE
    • Improve 68030 bus error handling and retrying faulty instruction
    • Fix: only enable cache emulation when relevant
    • Improve softfloat FPU emulation
    • FPU emulation mode (softfloat or not) can be changed on the fly
    • Ensure HW registers region is not cachable for 68030 without MMU when write allocate mode is enabled
  • DSP:
    • Fix DSP ROM tables (sin, mulaw & a-law)
    • Some waitstate cycles were not correctly counted when accessing DSP IO regs in CE mode
  • Blitter:
    • Fix: a rare case in cycle exact mode when bus is shared between CPU and blitter: the last word of a transfer could be wrong if bus was owned by CPU just before processing this last word and a read-modify-write is made
    • State of current blitter operation was sometimes not correctly restored when CPU temporarily stopped the blitter and resumed it later
    • DSP emulation was not updated in parallel when blitter was running
  • Video:
    • Handle VBlank signal and mask the 2 last lines when bottom border is removed
  • Hard disks:
    • Experimental support for the NCR5380 SCSI chip in Falcon and TT mode
  • Serial ports:
    • Very experimental support for the SCC chip of the Mega-STE, TT and Falcon (only channel B for now, and output only, use the "--scc-b-out" command line switch)
  • Misc:
    • Correctly emulate bus error handling for STE lightpen registers
    • Experimental support for TOS 2.07 (the "Sparrow" TOS)

Emulator:

  • Misc:
    • "patch TOS timer-D" speedup option is now disabled by default
    • Allow up to 512MB of TT-RAM (increased from 256 MB)
    • Additional ROM patches applied to TOS v4.x for 040 & 060
    • Improved info and warning output for Hatari constraints and issues
  • Memory snapshot save/restore:
    • Fix: Include GEMDOS HD file handles so apps with open files work
    • Improve memory snapshot save/restore reliability (e.g. for pending interrupts)
    • Save/restore TT RAM content into memory snapshots
  • SDL GUI:
    • Show warning dialog when cartridge file is disabled due to conflict with other features
    • Fix halt dialog crash on double bus error before SDL init
    • Add FPU softfloat option
    • Move joystick info to second statusbar line
    • Few additional special keys can be remapped
    • Fix: broken CPU dialog with old UAE CPU core
    • Display 'SF' in status bar if FPU emulation is using softfloat library
    • Display 'CE' or 'PF' in status if using 'cycle exact' or 'prefetch' modes
    • It is now possible to configure more than one ACSI hard disk images
  • MacOS / GUI:
    • Minor GUI updates for v2.1 changes
    • Fix: "reset" and "don't reset" UI buttons inverted
    • Update MIDI panel for French version
    • Save screenshots in user defined location or ~/Desktop
  • Windows:
    • Fix: buffer overflow in relative Hatari datapath handling
  • Disk handling:
    • IDE byte-swap option added to config file & GUI
    • Fix: NF SCSI driver didn't invalidate cache for changed memory area
    • Fix: *.INF file in disk image being overridden even when neither VDI mode or autostart program wasn't specified (v2.1 regression)

    • Fix: "--tos-res high" setting
  • Debugging:
    • Fix: DSP/CPU profile "addresses" commands output line count when paging. Tell also when it wraps to start
    • Each log message has a log level prefix
    • (Almost) all Hatari output goes now through logging framework so that Hatari verbosity can be controlled
    • Output at default log level is reduced significantly
    • Add support for ISP & USP and 020+ special registers like VBR
    • Add "OsCallParam" variable which gives first (word sized) parameter for OS calls, for use with OS call "*Opcode" breakpoints
    • Add virtual V0..V7 registers to "register" command for calculations
    • "memdump" and "memwrite" commands output & input can now be also word or long sized instead of bytes
    • Show arguments in DSP XBios call traces
    • FPU and PMMU opcodes are now also disassembled in 68040/060 mode
  • Options:
    • Fix: "--memsize 0" legacy option
    • Disable "--timer-d" option by default. Increases CPU usage (noticeably for ST/e emulation), but some rare (badly written) programs need it for correct color raster & sample handling
    • The "--bios-intercept" option requires now a boolean parameter to determine whether the option should be enabled or disabled
    • Add "--cmd-fifo" option to control Hatari at run-time just by echoing commands to a FIFO file (created by Hatari)
    • Add "--tos none" option to run test programs without any TOS. Real Atari programs cannot be run with this, as it doesn't implement the necessary Atari OS calls
    • Halt dialog is skipped if --run-vbls is used (for automation)

    • Support argument setting also for programs that are run from disk images
  • zip2st: handle also directories with spaces in their names
  • Fixes to hatari_profiler Callgrind output symbol handling

  • Add notes about (new default) PortMidi support to MIDI usage
  • More details on GEMDOS HD and VDI mode emulation limits
  • Large updates to compatibility documents and to performance section in the manual
  • Add release checklist document

Fixed demos:

  • B.I.G. Demo screen 2 (regression in Hatari 2.1, vblank in bottom border)

  • Lethal Xcess in STE mode (stopping/resuming blitter and saving/restoring memory snapshots)
  • Lethal Xcess in STF mode (add jitter to MFP, temporary fix)

Fixed programs:

    • Add option "--screenshot-format <x>" (<x> = png or bmp or neo or ximg)
  • Memory Snapshot:
    • Add some missing variables to the savestate

    • Support for disassembly output options working also for CPU core     disassembler, in addition to external disassember output
    • More flags to change the disassembly output for CPU core     (upper/lower case, show memory content, show EA, ...)
    • The built-in "external" disassembler has been replaced by a     disassembler provided by the Capstone library (version >= 4.0)
  • Debugger:
    • Fix: free all debugger allocations before exit

HATARI Version 2.4.0 (2020-07-09)

Following features are deprecated and will be removed in a future release:

  • SDL 2.x "bUseSdlRenderer" config and "GPU scaling" GUI options  (after HW support for SDL2 is available widely enough)
  • The "external" disassembler (i.e. use "--disasm uae" instead)
  • Hatari XBios(255) API enabled with the "--bios-intercept" option  (i.e. use "--natfeats" & "--cmd-fifo" options and "hconsole" instead)
  • The old ~/.hatari configuration file location (use ~/.config/hatari instead)
  • The rendering functions for 16 bits-per-pixel host screens (almost all  recent hardware should have 32 bpp nowadays)

Removed features (that were marked as deprecated in earlier releases):

  • Support for the SDL 1.2 library (i.e. SDL 2.x should be used instead)
  • Support for building Hatari for Windows CE has been removed, too, since  this was relying on version 1.2 of the SDL library.
  • The old UAE CPU core (i.e. the new WinUAE CPU core is now always used)
  • Python v2 support in Python scripts (Python 2 was end of life in 2020)

Emulation improvements:

  • Internal timers:
    • Rewrite the internal timers used to emulate delays/events/mfp timers (gain ~10% on average, up to 60% in very specific cases)

    • Improve FPU emulation (exceptions, unimplemeted instructions, fsincos)
    • Improve FPU emulation in softfloat mode
    • Improve IPL timing update in various opcodes
    • Faster emulation of 68000 in cycle exact mode (gain ~7%)
  • MFP:
    • Use the new internal timers for MFP timers
    • Improve accuracy when reading MFP's Timer Data Register
      • More accurate emulation by processing all internal timers first before  reading/writing any MFP register (was previously delayed after processing the current CPU instruction, which was too late in some cases)
  • Video:
    •  - Fix position for detecting when VBLANK should be disabled in 50 Hz and 60 Hz
  • DSP:
    • Improved interrupts handling and SSI (from Previous NeXT emulator)
  • Sound:
    • Improve accuracy of YM2149's sample generation by using the main CPU clock as a reference for all timings (syncsquare effect as used in recent maxYMiser v1.53)
    • Use specific memory functions when doing DMA for STE and Falcon sound (don't generate bus error when pointed memory is not present)
    • Improve value of MFP GPIP bit 7 for DMA sound in the case of STE/TT (video mono XOR dma sound xsint)

  • TT/Falcon:
    • Increase max TT-RAM amount to 1024 MiB
    • Separate config + CLI options to override NVRAM language and keyboard layout settings
    • NVRAM language default is taken from the LANG env variable

    • Repeat CPU & DSP "step" and "next" commands on Enter
    • Output PC location in CPU & DSP disassembly
    • More readable "variables" command output
    • Add "PConSymbol" variable for breaking on symbol addresses
    • Add "mmu" and "vme" options for "info" command

NOWSZY [ATARI] ST/Falcon:Hatari 2.3.0 28/11/2020

HATARI Version 2.3.0 (2020-11-28)

Following features are deprecated and will be removed in a future release:

  • Support for the SDL 1.2 library (i.e. SDL 2.x should be used instead)
  • SDL 2.x "bUseSdlRenderer" config and "GPU scaling" GUI options (after HW support for SDL2 is available widely enough)
  • The old UAE CPU core (i.e. the new WinUAE CPU core should be used instead)
  • Python v2 support in Python scripts (Python 2 was end of life in 2020)
  • The "external" disassembler (i.e. use "--disasm uae" instead)
  • Hatari XBios(255) API enabled with the "--bios-intercept" option (i.e. use "--natfeats" & "--cmd-fifo" options and "hconsole" instead)
  • The old ~/.hatari configuration file location (use ~/.config/hatari instead) 

Emulation:

  • FDC / Disk:
    • Support for MegaSTE DIP switch register $FF9200 (set floppy drive to HD by default on MegaSTE/TT/Falcon)
    • support for DD/HD mode on MegaSTE at $FF860E (when FDC is set to HD mode, reading DD floppies will fail)
    • Support for the 'Disk Change' (DC) signal on TT machines on TT's MFP GPIP4
    • Fix: IDE disks with sector size > 512 bytes
    • Fix: IDE controller is now always available in Falcon mode, even if no hard disks have been configured.
  • CPU:
    • Update CPU core to latest WinUAE 4.4.0 beta: full support for undocument fields in 68000 bus/address error stack frames, as well as CCR flags for most of the 680x0 instructions (using a cpu tester program on the real hardware that checks all possible opcodes' combinations)
    • 68030 MMU hardware bus error support + various fixes
    • FPU fixes
  • Video:
    • Improved timing when setting Vsync signal (same place where video counter is reloaded)
    • Handle screen where vertical DE signal is completely disabled
    • Better start/end position for the VBlank signal at 50Hz and 60Hz
  • Sound:
    • Add a better filter for downsampling the internal 250 kHz signal, should give better results when the YM2149 outputs high frequency sounds
    • Fix microwire mask shifting when CPU runs > 8 MHz
  • MFP:
    • Rewrite MFP code to handle several MFP objects and add support for the TT's 2nd MFP (not all TT's MFP signals are emulated yet)
    • Improved Falcon's DMA sound interrupt on GPIP7 and AER
  • Blitter:
    • Large rewrite of the blitter's core, improving cycle accuracy and handling the complex cases where xcount=1 and nfsr=1. Code is slighlty smaller and closer to the logic of the real hardware
    • Handle restart in non HOG mode when the CPU uses a RMW instruction (eg TAS)
    • Improve access to memory regions that would generate a bus error for the CPU
    • Emulate additional RTC/NVRAM registers
    • megaSTE should start at 8 MHz, not 16 MHz

Emulator:

  • Miscellaneous:
    • Fix: freeze at Hatari exit and RS-232 device file changes, when device file(s) are FIFO(s)
    • Fix: when autostarting programs without pre-existing INF file, enable blitter also with EmuTOS
    • Use floppy track's size in bytes to detect DD/HD/ED (instead of counting sectors)
    • Add --lilo debug option for more convenient m68k Linux loading
  • Config file handling:
    • Support config file values with '=' in them
    • Skip reading global config file if HATARI_TEST environment variable is set
  • Memory handling:
    • Memory snapshot version increase due to FDC changes (i.e. old snapshots won't work with new version)
    • Accept 10MB as valid ST-RAM amount (max on real MegaSTE/TT machines) and correct invalid Falcon ST-RAM amounts
    • Fix: 24-bit address mode change while emulation is running (triggered e.g. when TT-RAM is enabled for TT)
  • HD images:
    • Fix: run-time IDE byte swap change requires IDE re-init
    • Fix: TOS booting from A: although SCSI drive was enabled
    • Support read-only HD image files, and show error dialogs for image file open/lock issues
  • GEMDOS HD emulation:
    • Support FASTLOAD program flag with GEMDOS HD
    • GEMDOS HD emulation cartridge assembly functionality is moved almost completely to emulator side. Fixes Atari side error handling when program file is not readable, and TOS stack overflows in some rare cases
    • Detect DTA re-use to reduce DTA cache usage, grow cache on demand and give warning if its entries need to be re-cycled (= cache max size is reached)
    • Invalid DTA in Fsnext() return -ENMFIL, like TOS does
    • Fix: skip non-existing host files on FSnext() instead of returning an error (latter broke directory listings)
    • Fix: Dsetpath/Dgetpath empty path handling
  • Hatari graphics support:
    • Low/med-rez line doubling uses less CPU and doubled lines in "TV" display mode are now drawn at half intensity, not as black (fixes TV mode being too dark)
    • SDL2: "--zoom" option accepts any values between 1.0.8.0
    • SDL2: "--zoom" option is changed to always enable low resolution doubling before SDL framebuffer is scaled up (or down) by the zoom factor. This way Hatari output window is approximately same sized regardless of emulated Atari resolution, like on a real CRT monitor
    • SDL2: scale quality is selected automatically; nearest pixel for sharp output with integer scaling factors, and linear scaling to smooth out issues with non-integer scaling and window resizes
    • SDL2: Now redundant "nRenderScaleQuality" config option is removed and "Linear scaling" option in GUI is replaced with the "GPU scaling" option (=bUseSdlRenderer config option)
    • Added new "--screenshot-dir" option to select the folder for screenshots
    • Fix: [ffmpeg/video] Invalid PNG signature 0x89504E470D0A1A

    • Fix: Spec512_StoreCyclePalette when using 16 or 32 MHz
  • Input handling:
    • Support SDL "Hat" events in addition to "Axes" events (= support 80's game controllers, also in SDL GUI)
    • Map a turbofire button independent of the fire button if the game controller is capable
    • Show mouse grab toggle shortcut key in startup statusbar message
    • Center host mouse to Hatari window on Atari resets and resolution changes only when window is focused and mouse pointer is within it
    • Fix: keypad emulation with SDL2
    • Fix: simulated (socket API) key input with SDL2
  • Profiler:
    • Profiler backtrace shows now real caller addresses and their offsets from the function entry points (slows profiling of addresses with symbols)
    • All profiler outputs have now reasonable limits (so that they don't flood console)
    • Fix: exception in profile post-processor script (with symbol address aliases)
  • Tracing:
    • Fix: CPU disassembly trace output doesn't go to specified trace file
    • Trace flags can be added and removed instead of needing to always specify all the relevant ones, both with "--trace" command line option and debugger "trace" command: --trace os_base,aes, trace +xbios,bios, trace -bios,-aes
    • VDI trace shows names also for NVDI/Speedo/GDOS functions
    • VDI & AES trace function numbers are shown in hexadecimals with 0x prefix like rest of the OS calls
  • Debugger:
    • New "screenshot" command for saving screen dump to a PNG/BMP file
    • "symbols resident" option replaced with "symbols autoload" option which can be used to completely disable automatic symbol loading and unloading for programs run through the GEMDOS HD (helps debugging resident programs started from GEMDOS HD)
    • Improvements to UAE and external disassembler disassembly
    • UAE disassembler is now default instead of external one (latter doesn't decode all instructions correctly)
    • New "info" subcommands: "acia", "dmasnd", "ikbd", "mfp", "nvram", "rtc" and "scc"
    • Also UAE disassembler can now show the profile info
    • "info" command can show AES & VDI information on on their respective traps without VDI mode/tracing being enabled
    • Breakpoint ":info" option to call specified info function on tracing breakpoint hits (one can now use e.g. ":info vdi" on VdiOpcode breakpoints)
    • Improved symbols info output
  • Native features:
    • Support for missing NF_SHUTDOWN (reset) sub commands
    • Test code for rest of features (except for NF_SCSIDRV)
    • When Hatari resets or exits due to emulated program NF_SHUTDOWN / NF_EXIT call, output user a note about that

Tools and Hatari Python/Gtk UI:

  • Python scripts use now "python3" because most current distros don't anymore install Python v2 by default. To use a script with v2, change "python3" in its first line to "python2"

Building and unit tests:

  • Source repository moved from Mercurial to Git
  • Fix: issue with multilib capable cross-compilers
  • Only Caps library v5.1 is supported (support for old v4.2 is dropped)

  • Oompa by No Extra (after greetings part) (blitter access to bus error regions)
  • E.K.O System (music should now play in the racing scene)

Fixed programs:

  • MS Write (crash), when it's run from GEMDOS HD
  • Akaisex program reading AKAI S1000 HD floppies converted to STX
  • EmuTos drawing vertical lines with blitter and leaving some trails (blitter in non HOG mode using TAS intruction to restart)
  • Cecile v2.22, now also works if no IDE drive has been configured
  • Trans D-Bug Express by PHF (lock when running in megaSTE mode at 16 MHz)

Notes:

→ [ATARI] ST/Falcon:Hatari 1.9.0

 

ATARI Hatari:Menu Pompey#92
FDD Menu: Pompey#92

Hatari Version 1.9.0 (2015-09-10):

Emulation:

  • STE Joypads:
    • Fix: Joypad A Option button
    • Fix: Joypad B extended buttons
  • ACSI / IDE:
    • Fix: image file attribute check when using device files
    • Fix: v1.8 ACSI regression with A1=0 case
  • CPU:
    • update WinUAE CPU core version from 2.3 -> 2.8.1 -> 3.0 -> 3.1
    • MMU emulation fixed
    • instruction/data cache emulation
    • better 68020/30 prefetch pipeline
    • cycle accuracy, etc.
    • in 68000 mode, remove some un-allowed <ea> for CMPI, BTST and TST
    • check for address error when new PC is set at the end of RTE, RTS and RTR
    • fix "move.b an,<ea>", it's not allowed and should give illegal instruction
    • improve stack frame for bus error and address error
    • allow bus control only for 030 (i.e. prevent TOS forcing 16Mhz at boot with higher CPU levels)
  • Memory:
    • TT-RAM / 32-bit addressing support both for TT & Falcon emulatio n (when using EmuTOS, this requires version 0.9.4 or later)
  • FDC changes:
    • for STX disks, fix type I commands with verify bit on tracks with no sector
    • for ST/MSA, check read address and read track are not beyond max track
  • Emulator:
    • Support for compiling with libSDL2 (experimental)
    • SDL2 supports other than 2x scaling factors for ST/e emulation

SDL GUI:

  • joystick navigation in options GUI
  • keyboard navigation & shortcuts in options GUI
  • sort file selector items case-insensitively with folders first
  • Partial support for showing Latin1 chars from UTF-8 file names
  • AltGr+F<1-4> keyboard shortcuts to switch mode/type for emulate  joysticks and joypads
  • User can reset or quit emulation from CPU halt dialog
  • Fix: sync joystick changes with statusbar
  • Fix: update default max window size for 2-line statusbar NOTE: size would need to be updated in Hatari config files too!
  • Fix: statusbar assert when FPU/MMU/TT-RAM are enabled in WinUAE CPU core
  • When cpu enters 'halt' state in case of double bus/address errors, show a dialog window to reset or call the debugger
  • Fix bug in the filesector dialog that could create bug in other dialogs used in Hatari

Debugger:

  • Fix: crash when GEMDOS tracing is used without GEMDOS HD emulation
  • Fix: update external disassembler's CPU mask when CPU type is changed (it wasn't restricted to opcodes valid for given CPU type)
  • Fix: breakpoint addition/removal within chained breakpoints
  • Fix: Atari program detection on Windows for "symbols" command
  • Profiler support for TT-RAM (uses *ton* of memory)
  • Profiler support for (030) data cache and new "profile caches" command to show i/d-cache hit/miss histograms
  • Add trace support for IDE, MIDI and keymaps. ACSI (SCSI) and IDEtrace output shows primary partition tables for ACSI & IDE images (both Atari and DOS MBRs are supported)
  • Add "os_base" trace option to trace Fopen/Fclose/Pexec/Pterm*. That and "os_all" will now enable also xconout console redirection
  • Output from --conout goes now to stdout instead of stderr
  • Add "reset <hard|soft>" command
  • Add "save" subcommand to "history" command
  • Add "basepage" address variable

Other changes:

  • Add script to convert long host file names to Atari file names, use that in atari-hd-image script
  • Add hatari-prg-args script for providing arguments to autostarted programs
  • Fix Atari program detection on Windows in "gst2ascii" tool
  • Hatari & disk image icons in SVG & PNG formats (multiple sizes)
  • Remaining Hatari OSX UI changes for Hatari v1.8.0 (localization)
  • Add video-recording.txt doc on video recording/uploading best practices

Fixed demos:

  • Graphix Sound 2 in Relapse by Cybernetics (blitter+cpu, bus arbitration)
  • RGBeast by Aggression (video, writing to video counter during active display)
  • My Socks Are Weapons by Legacy (video, reading video counter in high res)

Fixed games:

  • Superior 65 - Blood Money (cpu, exception stack and bus error) (note that this version is bugged and will crash with TOS 1.04 or 1.62)
  • Obitus (STX version) (fdc, seek+verify on a track with no sector)
  • The Teller (STX/CTR version) (cpu, exception stack and address error)
  • War Heli (cpu, exception stack for address error and prefetch)

Fixed programs:

  • Realtime and M by Eric Ameres (midi + mfp, toggle bit 0 of AER)
  • Notator (midi, more precise TDRE bit in status register)

Known regressions (see compatibility list):

  • Suretrip demo by Checkpoint
  • Golden Island game demo with WinUAE CPU core
