|Re: [hatari-devel] Preparing hatari 2.3.1|

For the FPU thing I think it's better to add
single note to the dialog telling which items
are dependent on other settings, e.g:
Note: blitter, FPU and DSP settings have impact
only for specific platforms, see manual.
Because it's addition, not text change, I think
it should be after bug fix release.
I changed the 32-bit addressing error message.
From my part, everything is done for bugfix
release. Has somebody else still something?
I think that after release, we should change log
level in all dialog messages where Hatari
automatically corrects something, from ERROR to
IMHO error should be only for something where
user needs to do something (and FATAL is when
Hatari exits after dialog is done).
Messages/dialogs from hard disk code should
probably show also disk ID, not just interface,
because setting same disk for all 8 ACSI, 8 SCSI
and 2 IDE disks, and then getting 8 identical
error messages after one another, then another
8 identical messages would surely be annoying...

I've also rechecked some programs to verify some comments, because

I'm OK with the comments you added or changed. They're more precise
You also added new entries or I'm still asleep ? ;)
I notices a little typo in the cavemania description (there's a "*b*"
that should be removed):
Some menus are black (space gets through them). Scrolling to bottom
of game area *b* shows garbage. Background music with DSP emu
For EKO epidemic musicDisk, there's a bug fixed version from GGN that
works well. In his HTML page (http://d-bug.me/), GGN writes :
/"With about a week or two left for the party, GGN got a request from
Lotek Style of tSCc. Specifically, an old music disk by EKO called
//Epidemic <http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=25916>//has never
behaved properly - the intro would run but the music selector would
crash violently. A quick fix was made for it, yet many issues still
remain: there is a lot of screen tearing on the 3D objects in the
background which (given the short time frame) weren't apparent to
fix. Also a tune was missing, and that's because this music disk
appears to be a port of a PC music disk //of the same name
<http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=4633>//- the //tune in question
<https://demozoo.org/music/62721/>//is an 8 channel .mod file,
something that the player was not capable of playing. Fortunately
Lotek managed to source a 4 channel version so cheers to him and the
person that did the conversion (details are a bit sketchy, either the
tune was converted using a tool or was hand fixed)."/
So, maybe the original EKO demo doesn't work at all and that's not
hatari's fault ?
Sounds plausible. The new version works,
so I replaced the old version with that one.
(Except for working now, it behaves similarly
in regards to sound and DSP requirement with
different Hatari versions.)
Some entries in the compatibility list are written 2.3.1 and some are
written 2.3+. Is it a typo ?
Left overs. I've fixed them all now.
For Stocasto demo, I would have written : "music didn't work before
Just for info (not to be mentioned in the compatibility list),
Terrorise your soul screens are all wrong with my quick videl patch
(I had to remove it to check that the demo works well).
AFM (audio fun machine) : I would color it to orange and add this
comment : glitchy sound (or noise) when equaliseur is selected.
sound is perfect otherwise. (Eero, can you confirm ?)
I can hear the noise with equaliser enabled, but
otherwise I can't test it. I added slightly
edited version of your info.
Flaysid (v3.01): my computer is a very fast, last generation PC (core
I7), and the music is cristal clear. I've tested a few sids I have
on my harddrive. I think it works well with hatari.
Good to know, fixed.
I think that we've done a complete testing of Falcon programs and
this gives a good photo for the later fixes or regressions.
Thanks, I pushed an updated version. Please give
it a quick check too!
I tried changing "FPU" to "020+ FPU", but it
didn't IMHO look good. Maybe "(for 020+ CPUs)"
under the FPU options list?
Any comment on this?
(Then there's also addr24 / TT-RAM warning.)
