would be really appreciated! :)|

Last Updates (max 5)
(forgot to post updates for 377)Fixes for DAC with non-standard CPU speedlarge file hack fixescrash fix for loading 378 files larger than max (2MB)Fixes to make big file hack work with files of arbitrary size.
crash fix for loading 378 files larger than 2MBDAC fix for non-100% CPU settingsbig file hack fix - only enabled on command line (not yet in documentation)
No longer blindly unmutes audio when re-sizing window (including minimize) - audited other mute/unmute locationsNo longer unpauses breakpoints when opening debugger
EEPROM lock support for UberGROMMiscellaneous Audio fixesnew DAC system added (works for cassette gate bit and high frequency square waves)audio mute fixes for menu interactionstweak system timing code for more responsivenesschange debug screen to say 'mask' instead of 'size' on color and pattern tables in bitmap mode
some hacky test code in sound for unrelated projects - ignoreincrease cartridge bankswitch size to 2MBadd non-inverted cart switch scheme (type '8')Disable the VDP warning everyone dislikes ;)Removed ROMs from source again
Note: this is a beta release. I'm not done all the improvements yet. Use with care
Video recording may be broken - I've found "Open Broadcaster Software" to work very well though!
Text to Speech apps and other apps that flood the speech synth, ignoring the control bits, do not work (ie: TE2)
DSK image support is mostly read-only
Uninitialized memory detection does not work on AMS RAM
80 column mode does not work with screenshots, AVI recording, filters, or any stretch except DIB
128k mode is very untested and not guaranteed to work - nor is it intended to be improved later
F18A support is very very incomplete
