p-uae v0.1

I decided to do a quick alpha release of my p-uae port, grab it from the aros-archives / aminet, as soon as is accepted there.

This alpha release of P-UAE for AROS is based on the sources at http://github.com/GnoStiC/PUAE from the 31st January 2013.

This is a *real* alpha version, don't expect anything: It *will* crash, it *will* miss features and so on.

As PUAE is based on the merged WinUAE version, it means, that P-UAE v0.1 is based on WinUAE 2.6.0.

White Rabbits

I started writing this blog while travelling back to New Zealand. It's been a busy and productive couple of weeks but it will be good to get back home to the summer down under. Actually the weather in Northern Europe was quite good until the Arctic blast which hit just as I was leaving the UK. I arrived back in New Zealand to sunshine, a water shortage and hosepipe ban. :-(

Happy Easter

Brussels, March 31, 2013

Easter seems like an appropriate time to provide a short update on the development status of a few key components of the upcoming AmigaOS 4.2.

.. and in 24 Bit

SDL can force a 32bit mode, so on a 24bit screen we do a:

SDL_SetVideoMode (current_width, current_height, 32, uiSDLVidModFlags);

And with this magic, PUAE also works in my 24-bit AROS/linux hosted environment :)!

A600: Fun AmigaSYS testing and some recent OS additions

Hey peepz,

After my latest video (thanks for the nice comments btw), I decided to try more stuff to my system.
First of all and just for FUN purposes I decided to convert AmigaSYS 4 AGA to ECS :P
I really think that AmigaSYS is a nice compilation which has it's follower although, I'm not of them.
Sorry folks, ClassicWB all teh way! So... WHO said that AmigaSYS can't run on ECS machines? :D

Islands in the streams

This just in!

Update: So, I thought my problems where with the error 209, ACTION_UNKNOWN seen below in a few logs. Not so. Tonight I just realized that I'm playing around with streams that don't support stuff like available() (natively using IDOS->GetFilePosition() and such), i.e. any streaming data with no real end, like STDIN. Like, duh... Anyhow. I've solved this by calling IDOS->IsInteractive() on the file handle prior calling any un-supported functions on it.

New Backgrounds for X1000

Today DJ Nick released some new HD Wallpaper backgrounds for AmigaOS4.

Given it has been a while since I have changed my workbench background, it was a good opportunity
to do so today!

I have included some workbench screen grabs using two of the new backgrounds on my X1000 (click to expand):
