Hi guys,

If you're running Windows, please help us beta testing the upcoming openMSX 0.6.1.Hi guys,

If you're running Windows, please help us beta testing the upcoming openMSX 0.6.1. We put a beta online here:

http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/openmsx-0.6.1-beta-win32-bin.exe (installer)
http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/openmsx-0.6.1-beta-win32-bin.zip (ZIP)

If you already have an other openMSX installed, it might be wise to make some backups of those directories.

Note that it will display 0.6.0-devNNNN in the title bar, indicating that it's a beta.

Users of other operating systems: please check out the sources, compile it and test also! :)

Any reactions are most welcome to this thread or on the usual openMSX channels (mostly IRC and forum.openmsx.org).

Last but not least: the new stuff (that is most interesting to test) can be found here:

http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/ (scroll down to almost half way)

THANKS!

Yep!. Already downloaded yesterday. Lately I'm playing with synch code and I've seen some special behaviours (or at least different than BlueMSX), if I see changes with the new version I'll write some lines here.
Btw, seems very useful the posibility to log the PSG regs contents. Bye,bye to possible PSG#7 illegal writes Tongue

[D-Tail], I think I also said: Users of other operating systems: please check out the sources, compile it and test also!

It's just that we have not many Windows testers, except BiFi Smile

Especially try the SDLGL-PP renderer. It's possible that openMSX then crashes though, in which case your gfx card doesn't seem to support the proper OpenGL functionality for this.

What else to test: any of the new features and also the old features. Does it all (still) work properly? Is it stable? Etc.

I've heard some reports of Catapult hanging sometimes in the machineconfig-check. Please report if it works or doesn't work for you.

Thank you for helping out!

Note that I've added a screenshot showing some new SDLGL-PP renderer features on the openmsx.sf.net site.

Vampier, don't get upset.
I think that Manuel only mentioned Bifi because you once stated that you were going to take it more slowly as far as your MSX activities were concerned. Something about Real Life(tm) taking up too much of your time iirc.
Ofcourse if you're telling us that you're going to spend more time on openMSX again... Smile
