Don't let the term "betatest" keep you from trying this new version, a lot of care has been added (over the past 5 years or so) to make things right Smile

Thanks, dink, for your contributions, especially the save state bugfix (joystick was stuck with some games when loading a save state) Smile

Indeed, the list of changes is very long. This beta comes without any installer. If you get a Windows message when starting blueMSX.exe, you need to install the DirectX End-User Runtime :

Be patient with this installation and wait for the end of the installation of a long serie of .dll files !

This is still my favourite emulator because of the GUI and there are now lots of problems solved that have bothered me. Great work!

I'm planning an update of the databases and the manual for the end of this year, so a complete beta will be available at this moment !

No, it's a bug too recently reported.

Metalion, the Save Stage bug was first reported 6 years ago, and was only fixed last weekend. So please patiently wait another 5-6 years for the new fix. Big smile Ok, so I'm joking Smile Maybe we can figure it out quicker this time.

mars2000you, its the least I can do, no thanks is necessary Smile I have one small favor to ask, could you zip up all your cheat files (blueMSX\Tools\Cheats\*)and link them somewhere? I don't have the patience to create the new files from the posts on the other forum, and I'm sure others would appreciate this as well. Smile

best regards and happy retro gaming,

BS warning. Smile I reported the R#13 bug already 23.10.2008
About same time I also told that blinking is affecting wrong video frame in text mode and that ie. VDP(24)=4 does not work correctly on SCREEN 0

Check the Resource page ; only the new serie of cheats is missing, I'll add them at the same time as for the update of the databases and the manual.
