New YAPE out at last!
Tuesday, 21 October 2014
At long long last - probably a new record - here is YAPE 1.0.5 for you. Since I have far less spare time than ever before I had to make a few compromises such as dropping support for anything below Windows XP (which itself is also obsolete in the meantime). DirectDraw dependency is also removed. Additinally, some parts of the user interface underwent major refactoring enabling to reduce the size of the executable. But let's figure out what's changed:
  • show full IEC path in directory listing
  • using Direct3D 9.0 (at last...) - still not the most up-to-date but hey...:
    • better fullscreen mode (no resolution mode change)
    • more consistent CRT emulation across video modes
    • adjustable video oversampling in DX mode (i.e. 'Use GDI' off)
    • Direct3D surfaces can be saved to PNG format
    • replaced 'double size' with 'double scan' in DX mode (576 row line buffer)
    • removed deprecated overlay mode and DirectDraw dependencies
  • Windows XP and higher only (sorry... no time to maintain earlier ones)
  • file association bug fixed
  • autostart fixes
  • tape motor should not start when PLAY/RECORD is pressed via the GUI
  • some code cleanups
Check the download page for the ZIP package! Note, that there is no separate download for the x64 binary, from now on it is actually included in the same archive.
