availability of WinFellow v0.5.2

We are proud to announce the availability of a new WinFellow release.

Compared to the previous version 0.5.1 there are a number of changes in this build, with the most significant ones being:

New features:

  • new display configuration options for setting scale factor (1x and 2x, retaining a proper aspect ratio), and scaling strategy (solid/scanline); inclusion of higher screen resolutions to allow use of 2x windowed modes
  • support for 2x mode in Amiga Forever
  • support for model presets to quickly get started setting up model specific configurations (a number of presets already included)
  • support for creation of empty and formatted ADF images
  • automatic interlace compensation (WinFellow will automatically detect interlaced graphics and perform interlace compensation; this can be disabled in various options, but is on by default for new configurations)
  • lower system requirements (an SSE capable processor is no longer required)
  • Windows 8.1 added to the supported operating systems... read more

availability of WinFellow v0.5.1

After several years of development, we are proud to announce the availability of a new, major update of WinFellow. There are a lot of changes and enhancements in version 0.5.1; for a full list, please refer to the new user guide or the ChangeLog. Below is a summary of the changes:

  • conversion of most of the former assembler code to C
  • enhanced compatibility with many titles; the chipset interrupt handler was completely re-designed, and sound interrupt handling was changed as well, allowing execution of many titles that previously failed
  • emulation of a battery backed real-time clock (Oki MSM 6242)
  • support for 2 joysticks, usable simultaneously
  • audio volume made controllable
  • the LED overlays were changed to no longer be scaled or stretched, making them nicer to look at
  • basic Cloanto Amiga Forever/RetroPlatform Player integration
  • revamped debugger using a more modern GUI design
  • ability to generate minidumps, which allows us to debug crashes that are reported to us
  • updated PDF user guide
  • update of project files to current Visual Studio (2012 Update 2 is used to compile the builds) and DirectX; the code can now be compiled using Visual Studio Express editions
  • new versioning scheme, based on SVN revisions
  • several minor bug and stability fixes... read more

WinFellow project looking for beta testers

As some people already noticed, there has recently been activity on the WinFellow SourceForge project homepage (read: "WinFellow is NOT dead" ).

It has indeed been a long time since our last release, you might say we took a break of some sorts, but part of the team started to actively develop WinFellow again. We have had several bug fixes and improvements, as well as some experimental new features flowing into WinFellow.... read more

This release is a snapshot of the current development status of WinFellow.
Though we take great care to always have our source archive in a usable

If you experience bugs within a snapshot release please do NOT mail us
about it as we most probably already know about this and are working on it.
