Tom Charlesworth has released a new experimental version of the Applewin Apple II Emulator. Applewin Version 188.8.131.52 is available on the Applewin website and includes the following changes:
- [Bug #504] Full-screen: hide mouse pointer after 2 seconds of inactivity (and show again if mouse is moved)
- [Bug #469] New -no-printscreen-key switch to prevent the PrintScreen key from being registered.
- [Bug #488] New -fs-height=<best|nnnn> switch to select a better resolution for full-screen mode.
- best: picks the highest resolution where the height is an integer multiple of (192*2)
- nnnn: select a specific resolution with height=nnnn pixels
NB. This switch changes the display resolution (and restores it on exit).
- [Bug #428] Input option to use PC Joystick 1 Thumbstick 2 for emulated Joystick 2
- Swapping disks while a drive is on now warns and prompts if you still wish to do this instead of silently failing with no feedback.
