First, I thank you very much, it's a huge work that you've archieved here.
I've quickly tested 2 demos that had worked with previous versions but
were not working with the last version of hatari :
- Moai : it works now
- EKO system : it works also now ;)
It looks promising.
(Falcon mode, no MMU, cycle exact)
But, I've also tested my current work and the timings differ a lot !
I'll give this version a closer look, I think it'll take some time to
New WinUAE's code also changes timings depending on the memory being
accessed (rom, chip ram, fast ram, ...). I haven't adapted this yet for
Atari HW, but it could be a reason for different timings. I need to have
a look at this next. CE mode depends on many parameters, both in CPU and
in memory's handling.
A thought : if one selects Falcon emulation, maybe we should select the
MMU ON now (a Falcon had a MMU inside).
Well, it depends, MMU mode provides addresses translation and other
memory protections, but it's less cycle accurate. So it would be better
used for running unix like OS (think about Next) or TOS replacement
where such functionnalities are needed.
Also, memory translation will take more cpu to emulate.
So, for game/demos and standard Falcon programs, I think it's better to
disable MMU now, there're more cases where it's not needed than the
Again, it's a great work !
Thanks, but the work you did on older winuae's version also helped to
compare both cores and have a starting base.
