Re: [hatari-devel] WinUAE settings for different machine types

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Another point I haven't solved (not found) is the problem I encounter when I switch from falcon to st, I loose the hard disk.
When I switch again to Falcon, the hardDrive is back.

Someone else told us about this problem on atari forum.

Thomas (or Eero) told me about the magic number we add to detect the Gemdos drive, but I haven't found the problem.

So, for now, the new winuae core should really be used only for Falcon emulation (also TT perhaps) with my settings.

Note that as SDL system dialog [1] has both machine type and and CPU

machine type.  I.e. user needs to know also what else to change when
changing machine type in the SDL GUI.

My patch concerns only changing machine type from command line, or
TOS version from GUI or CLI.  I.e. it's probably better if with SDL GUI
people change the machine type primarily by selecting suitable TOS. :-)

Well, I'm not sure changing machine type should implicitly change bCompatibleCpu and bCycleExactCpu.

I think Hatari should defaut to TRUE for these variables when you start it the 1st time without any config file. So later, if you change between falcon/TT/ST, they remain to TRUE, which is fine.

But if the user forced them to FALSE at one point, I don't think we should override this. He did it at his own risk, maybe getting crashes or worse emulation, but there good be reasong for not wanting to have this set to TRUE (to save cpu power for example, as you said).
