Sort of old news, but we are at version 3.0.3 since July, just forgot the announcement – see WinUAE.
So I’ve recently gotten ahold of the Steam port for P4G and discovered a nifty little save editor to fix a save state I had messed up. It is open source, but it lacked some of the features I wanted and was not 100% compatible with the PC port of the game.
So a short while later, I modified the tool to be able to fully support the PC port. You can find it in the tools section! I’ve also made some other improvements:
- ADDED: Support for the PC port of the game (update the MD5 in .binslot file)
- ADDED: “Quest Items” category to the items tab
- CHANGED: Updated and cleaned some of the code
- CHANGED: Modified the about dialog slightly
- CHANGED: Added a NEWS.txt
- CHANGED: Only enable save menu items after opening a file to prevent crashes
- FIXED: Crash when selecting the “Other” item category
After the massive update last time around, only minor changes this time. Caught up with WinUAE 4.2 thanks to Peter, and made some minor corrections. Go download it!
Also, this is some anniversary: 20 years ago, I started pulling together the first content of the help file together with Brian King. How time passes…
And yes, it is extremely fancy… expect no less from a design-impaired programmer. Still, plenty of updates all around!
There is a new version of the WinUAE Help file available as of now, which is 2.2.15. You may grab the updated version in our downloads section, as usual.
Also, in a rare case of promised and actually completed some work: the online version of the WinUAE Help is now up-to-date with the latest development! There have been a lot of changes going on in an attempt to vastly improve the content quality. This will ultimately result in a version 3.0 for the file. In the meantime, keep track of progress at winuaehelp.vware.at!
After some jackass tried attacking our old website host, vware.at and it’s content went offline for some time. That was not due to a successful attack but rather dissatisfaction with the hosting company. We have since moved to a new host with modern software and HTTPS support. Do enjoy.
Business as usual: Peter has been toiling away on our latest revision of the official WinUAE Help file. Meanwhile, I am working on a way to deliver it’s content easier and in more ways than in the last decade or so. Stay tuned, and grab the file at the usual place.
