    Just played with the update. Just so you know, uaeforarm doesn't load. From the indiego frontends menu it just drops to the desktop.

    Danke für das Update! :smile:

    Schön wäre es, wenn man den Fokus auf EmuLa setzen und schnellstmöglich alle Systeme implementieren würde. So würde man sich auf eine Sache konzentrieren, die dann auch 100% läuft. Gerade EmuLa ist eines der Merkmale, welches es von anderen regulären Raspi Emu Distributionen unterscheidet.

    Wann kann man hier mit Updates rechnen?

    Ansonsten bin ich schon gespannt, das neue Update auszuprobieren.

    uaeforarm funktioniert hier auch nicht.
  • Hi @deaddisk , I've translated your post with google translate because I don't speak German :tongue:
    If you have question about EmuLa please post in english because I'm the only one behind the code :wink:

    From what I have understood you are asking for the next EmuLa release, well, it is just around the corner, maybe it will need one week or two. I need to test some recent fixes, after the release the road map is the following:
    - Check for free space before any download
    - Add a preference to set/change the download folder (for cover art and downloadable games/demos).
    - Alternative game art download system
    - Support for Amiga (all flavours), it could take some time because of the amount of games available
    - Bug fixing
    - A ton of top-secret features :smiley:


    Currently implemented in the upcoming release:
    - Sometimes, closing Emula in console mode, an error was raised saving the current preferences.
    - In console mode, rom names and descriptions, if longer than the available screen space, will scroll to the left.
    - In console mode page indicators are no more of fixed size, they are resized automatically if there they does not fit into the current screen width.
    - When a game is started now EmuLa will show an image with the current controls assignment for the involved emulator. The image will be still visible in EmuLa background even while running your games so that you can peek at it to check controls while playing.
    - From now on the update will not overwrite anymore the icon file on Amiga-like systems to avoid to reset the icon position.
    - Now Emula will check host screen resolution before opening its main window and if it is bigger than the screen size Emula will try to reduce its size to fit to the screen. Lower screen resolution should be supported now. There could be readibility problems for very small screens.

    btw I'm very happy that you like EmuLa!
  • Great news! Thanks for detailed Feedback. Yes, i like EmuLa! :smiley:
