    WinFellow Alpha v0.5.1 build 880

    Seems that WinFellow is back. I preferred it at the time to UAE, which didn't have an GUI at all, but was only DOS based.

    After several years of development, we are proud to announce the availability of a new, major update of WinFellow. There are a lot of changes and enhancements in version 0.5.1; for a full list, please refer to the new user guide or the ChangeLog. Below is a summary of the changes:

    - conversion of most of the former assembler code to C
    - enhanced compatibility with many titles; the chipset interrupt handler was completely re-designed, and sound interrupt handling was changed as well, allowing execution of many titles that previously failed
    - emulation of a battery backed real-time clock (Oki MSM 6242)
    - support for 2 joysticks, usable simultaneously
    - audio volume made controllable
    - the LED overlays were changed to no longer be scaled or stretched, making them nicer to look at
    - basic Cloanto Amiga Forever/RetroPlatform Player integration
    - revamped debugger using a more modern GUI design
    - ability to generate minidumps, which allows us to debug crashes that are reported to us
    - updated PDF user guide
    - update of project files to current Visual Studio (2012 Update 2 is used to compile the builds) and DirectX; the code can now be compiled using Visual Studio Express editions
    - new versioning scheme, based on SVN revisions
    - several minor bug and stability fixes

    Have fun checking it out, and let us know what you think!

    Interesting.

    I'll have to try it out some time.

    I remember years ago, for some reason I preferred WinFellow to WinUAE.

    That is a blast from the past. It's development was stopped many years ago. Great to see it taken up again.

    Will definitely have to try it out.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
