|Re: [hatari-devel] STF/STE using WinUAE CPU in prefetch mode|

This is a good news.
I've done some tests. I wish they'll help.
My conf :
WinUAE core, ST(f), 1 Mo, TOS 1.04 fr
Real time clock emulation (ON)
Blitter emulation (OFF)
Patch timer-D (OFF)
Boot faster by patching TOS... (OFF)
Prefetch mode slower (ON)
Cycle exact, slower (OFF)
MMU Emulation (OFF)
24 bits adressing (OFF)
I've sometimes changed the CPU, the memory or the STf / STe. I write the
exact conf each time.
Compatible but slower (ON, but I think it doesn't do anything here)
First : something I never noticed before (because I mostly use hatari in
falcon mode on gemdos harddrive).
I insert a floppy disk into the drive, Then I run it (reset hatari).
At a moment, the demo ask me to insert the Disk 2. So I remove the disk
one, select the disk 2 and hatari tells me : ERROR: Cannot insert same
floppy to multiple drives.
I have to insert this disk into the drive B, then remove it, and insert
it into the drive A to have it been taken into account (I tested the
demo Froggies over the fence)
Sometimes it works correctly (but sometimes no).
OK, the tests :
Froggies over the fence :
In the main menu, There are some pixel glitches on the frogs.
I then select the upper left frog (the green one). In the 4096 color
screens, there are pixels glitches on the images and it flickers a lot
(the flickering may be normal, but I don't think the glitchy pixels are).
Antique (Dune) (tested with Ste, 4 Mo) seems OK
Dark side of the spoon (not all screen tested) Ste 4Mo, seems OK
Delirius demo (Stf, 512 Ko), not all screens tested, Seems OK.
Poltergeist demo : (Stf, 512 Ko), all screen tested, seems OK
syntax1.msa (probably syntax terror). The screen goes to black, then
nothing (it seems to crash)
virtual1.msa (something written at the beginning (crack to beat this
part 3), then black screen and nothing more) (it seems to crash)
Vodka1.msa :(STF, 512 ko, TOS 1.04) it prints "crack to beat this",
then double bus error
Big_demo.msa : (STF, 512 or 1 Mo TOS 1.04) it displays the first screen
and then crash.
Black.msa : (STF, 512, TOS 1.04) it crashes at the early beginning
Oh crickey, wot a scrotcher : 1 screen tested + main menu, it seems to work.
devotion.msa : the demo returns to the desktop.
eatMyBollocks : (Stf, Tos1.04, 1 Mo) : it seems to work
Flippo demo : seems to work OK
Faith Demo (By Chuck and myself) ;) seems OK
More to come later, hope this helps.

Please let us know when we should start testing our favorite games with
the WinUAE core. I have not used it except when running as a Falcon
because if the recommendation to use the old core for ST/STe programs.
Well, you can now, but use "prefetch mode, slower" mode in the system
settings, not "cycle exact, slower".
Regarding games, it's less likely to show differences when you use a
cracked version. So if possible, try the IPF or STX version with the
original protection still in place.
