Trunk

Here is a short overview of all changes made in trunk that are relevant for the respective port/gui maintainers.

Note: new stuff should be added at the bottom and each item should have the related svn revision

Port/GUI Maintainers should remove their port from the respective item when it is implemented. Items which have no more TODOs left should then be moved to the Developer_log_old Page to keep the size of this page down (and hopefully shrinking :))


2.1.11 (r20774)

  • Userport Joystick Interface support (r20807)
    • NEW: 2 new virtual joysticks
    • API: joystick_port_map[] (arch/*/joy.[ch]) size changed from 2 to 4 (JOYSTICK_NUM, joystick.h)
    • Resource: ExtraJoy (toggle) and ExtraJoyType see src/joystick.h for the types.
    • TODO: UI items for the following ports: os/2
    • TODO: Make the joystick UI correct, to clarify: c128, c64, c64dtv, cbm5x0 and plus4 have 2 native joystick port, vic20 has only 1 native joystick port and pet and cbm6x0/7x0 have no native joystick ports at all. The HIT userport joystick adapter can only be used on c64/c128, the other userport joystick adapters can be used on c64, c128, c64dtv, cbm6x0/7x0, pet and vic20.
    • NOTE: Network code uses the new size; this may be a problem.

2.1.13 (r20920)

  • Plus4 SID cart add-ons support (20977)
    • Resource: DIGIBLASTER (toggle) for the digibooster add-on and SIDCartJoy (toggle) for the joystick port on the sidcart.
    • TODO: xplus4 UI items for the following ports: os/2

2.1.14 (r21002)

  • Lightpen/gun support (21132)
    • NEW: Lightpen/gun emulation in x64, x128 and xvic
    • Resource: Lightpen (toggle)
    • Resource: LightpenType (enum, see lightpen.h)
      • 0=Pen with button Up (TODO: product name Atari CX75)
      • 1=Pen with button Left (TODO: product name?)
      • 2=Datel Pen
      • 3=Magnum Light Phaser
      • 4=Stack Light Rifle
    • TODO: Lightpen driver and UI items for the following ports: amiga, beos, os/2
    • NOTE: see SDL or win32 for driver implementation example
  • xvic cartridge system rewrite (21222)
    • NEW: Rewritten modular cartridge emulation similar to that of x64.
    • NEW: Mega-Cart emulation
    • Resource: CartridgeType (enum, see cartridge.h)
    • Resource: CartridgeFile (string)
    • Resource: CartridgeReset (toggle)
    • Resource: GenericCartridgeFile2000 (string)
    • Resource: GenericCartridgeFile4000 (string)
    • Resource: GenericCartridgeFile6000 (string)
    • Resource: GenericCartridgeFileA000 (string)
    • Resource: GenericCartridgeFileB000 (string)
    • NOTE: see win32/SDL/*nix UI for menu implementation.
    • NOTE: CartridgeFile and GenericCartridgeFileX000 and NOT meant to be manipulated directly by the UI. See the above note.

2.2.5 (r22607)

  • x64/x64sc/x128 Cartridge System (r22615)
    • changed cartridge_detach_image() to take the cartid (from cartridge.h) as parameter. all UIs have been changed to pass -1, which means "all cartridges".
    • NOTE: UIs that actually support to attach several carts should use the param properly, and should use this function instead of changing whatever associated resource directly. (this will make it easier to change the underlying mechanism without breaking everything all the time)
    • to clearify: generic actions such as attaching/enabling/detaching a cartridge should be done through the generic api in cartridge.h. using the individual resources to enable/disable a cartridge will still work, but is "deprecated".
  • x64/x64sc/x128 Cartridge System (r22623)
    • changed cartridge_get_file_name(), takes the cartid instead of the (meaningless) address for c64 now
      • affected emus: vic20 (the "WORD" in the prototype changed to "int", and it passes an address for type, and the "int" may now make it fail on 16bit hosts, meh :)) the logic should be changed to use cartids from cartridge.h instead, shouldnt matter else :)
    • a new function c64export_query_list() defined in c64export.h can be used to get a list of all currently attached/active cartridges, so you can eg use it in a dynamic menu and detach them using cartridge_detach_image(). look in c64export.c:c64export_dump() for a small usage example.
    • TODO: fix MSDOS port, fix VIC20

2.2.6 (r22742)

  • "PAL Emulation" is available in NTSC mode (r22746)
    • NEW: proper rendering with CRT emulation in NTSC mode
    • it is suggested to rename user visible strings that refer to "PAL Emulation" or "PAL Settings" to "CRT ..." to make clear that it is not only available in PAL mode.
    • ports that forced "PAL Emulation" disabled in NTSC mode should be changed so "PAL Emulation" can be enabled, and related options are available regardless of current video mode.
  • Gamma Calculation changed (r22749)
    • Resource: "ColorGamma" range was changed to 0...4000, and the new default is 2200 (which is the VGA 2.2 gamma). this change was needed to be able to handle different gammas of PAL/NTSC/etc. (and using the actual display hardware gamma as param is more intuitive too).
    • TODO: fix UI items of the following ports: os/2
    • possibly some #ifdef magic can be added in src/video/video-resources-pal.c to define correct defaults for platforms that don't use 2.2
  • "true aspect ratio" option (r22749)
    • geometry_s now contains (float)pixel_aspect_ratio which can be used to (optionally) scale the output canvas to get the true aspect ratio of the currently active video mode.
      • scale output rectangle horizontally by pixel_aspect_ratio if "true aspect ratio" option is enabled
      • to maintain consistency across ports, use Resource:"TrueAspectRatio" (toggle). (must be defined in arch dependend files)
        • SDL UI intentionally breaks this as it had "SDLGLAspectMode" that bent naturally from a toggle to an enum
    • TODO: implement in ports that can make use of this: (other with hw scaling?)
  • "PAL Emulation" "CRT Emulation" is available for CRTC and VDC (r22752)
    • NEW: proper rendering with CRT emulation for CRTC and VDC output
    • Resource: CrtcExternalPalette (toggle)
    • Resource: VDCExternalPalette (toggle)
    • all ports that forced "PAL Emulation" disabled should be changed so "CRT Emulation" can be enabled, and related options are available regardless of current video chip. all related special cases can be removed.
    • TODO: fix UI items of the following ports: os/2 (x128, xpet, xcbm2)
    • TODO: rename PAL emulation to CRT emulation on the following ports: os/2
  • IDE64 emulation can now handle 4 harddrive images. (r22824)
    • Resource: IDE64Image renamed/changed to IDE64Image1, IDE64Image2, IDE64Image3, IDE64Image4
    • TODO: add/fix UI items for the following ports: os/2.
  • NEW: IDE64 emulation can emulate IDE64v4 (r22824)
    • Resource: IDE64version4 (toggle)
    • TODO: add/fix UI items for the following ports: os/2

2.2.7 (r22889)

  • NEW: archdep_fix_permissions (r23053)
    • should set the permissions of a given file to "rw", respecting the current umask (if any)
    • TODO: add proper code for the following ports: beos, os/2, riscos
    • TODO: ...and copy to arch/sdl/archdep_* when doing that
  • List of canonical names for cartridges
    • cartridge.h now contains constants for (user visible) cartridge names. UIs should, if possible, use these constants - and if not atleast adhere to their spelling. Another advice is to remove redundant references to cartridge names from sub-menus and generally unifying them, in order to bring the overall number of messages down. (see *nix or SDL ui as an example).

2.3.6 (r23990)

  • ACIA/swiftlink/turbo232 base selectable, $DE00/$DF00 for c64/c128 and $D700 for c128 only (r24036)
    • TODO: add ACIA base address select UI item for the following ports: beos, os/2

2.3.8 (r24123)

  • MasC=uerade adapter support added to xvic.
    • TODO: add georam, digimax, acia/swiftlink/turbo232, sfx sound sampler, sfx sound expander and tfe UI items for the following ports: beos, os/2
  • IDE64 geometry selection now seperate for each harddrive image (r24191)
    • Resources have changed:
      • Resource: IDE64Cylinders has become IDE64Cylinders1, IDE64Cylinders2, IDE64Cylinders3 and IDE64Cylinders4.
      • Resource: IDE64Heads has become IDE64Heads1, IDE64Heads2, IDE64Heads3 and IDE64Heads4.
      • Resource: IDE64Sectors has become IDE64Sectors1, IDE64Sectors2, IDE64Sectors3 and IDE64Sectors4.
      • Resource: IDE64AutodetectSize has become IDE64AutodetectSize1, IDE64AutodetectSize2, IDE64AutodetectSize3 and IDE64AutodetectSize4.
    • TODO: Change IDE64 UI elements for the following ports: os/2

2.3.9 (r24210)

  • additional functions signals_pipe_set() and signals_pipe_unset() added in arch/*/signals.c (r24261)
    • to check if a port needs this implemented, type this into one terminal:
    x64 -remotemonitor
    and this into another:
    echo "reset" | nc -p 6510
    now terminate the connection by pressing ctrl-c. if the emulator now quits (or crashes) you probably need to handle SIGPIPE, ie set up a signal handler for SIGPIPE that calls monitor_abort() (see the unix code as an example). if not, just locate the respective fixme note in 'your' sourcefile and remove it.
    • TODO: check/confirm/implement for the following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2, riscos
    • TODO: ...and copy to arch/sdl/archdep_* when sigpipe handling is required
    • Note: signals_init() in riscos seems to be broken, perhaps worth checking in detail.
  • really keep monitor opened if console_can_stay_open is 1 (r24272)
    • if console_log->console_can_stay_open is 1, keep the monitor console/window opened (call uimon_window_suspend() instead of _close()) when exiting the monitor. allows eg tracepoint output to show up immediatly.
    • TODO: check/fix win32 UI.
  • additional random delay when autostarting (r24278)
    when enabled, this will delay by a random amount of cycles (up to 10 frames) before autostarting to introduce randomness into the system state.
    • new Resource: AutostartDelayRandom (BOOL, default = TRUE)
    • TODO: add UI items for the following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2
  • proper handling for double size and y-stretching (r24284)
    • new Resource: VDCStretchVertical (BOOL, default = TRUE)
    • new Resource: CrtcStretchVertical (BOOL, default = TRUE)
      when enabled, VDC and 80 colums CRTC output will be stretched vertically.
    • TODO: add UI items for the following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2
    • in order to support different magnification factors easily, the meaning of the videoconfig->doublesizex and videoconfig->doublesizey variables has slightly changed, it will now contain the actual magnification factor - 1. therefor in order to update your code, just change this kind of stuff:
      if (canvas->videoconfig->doublesizex) { width *= 2; }
      to that type of thing:
      if (canvas->videoconfig->doublesizex) { width *= (canvas->videoconfig->doublesizex + 1); }
      note: since 0 is still used for no magnification, you will only see an effect of this change when using VDC or 80 colums CRTC in doublesize mode with vertical stretching enabled, so use that for testing :) (ie, double size for VDC and 80 colums CRTC *really* means double size now)
      note: since vertical stretching is enabled by default, enabling double size mode for VDC or 80 colums CRTC in code that has not been updated will most likely crash. (on the other hand, every other case will still work fine)
    • TODO update the following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2
  • added model selection to xplus4 (r24285)
    • look at plus4/plus4model.h for models and functions, it works just like the c64 counterpart
    • TODO: add GUI items to following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2, osx
  • ACIA emulation can be disabled in xplus4 (r24285)
    • new Resource: Acia1Enable (BOOL, default = TRUE)
    • TODO: add GUI items to following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2
      Note: this toggles wether the internal ACIA is present or not. actual rs232 emulation may be "enabled" even if no ACIA is present. so this item should go near to the other hardware/i/o extensions/options.
  • xplus4 cartridge system unified to common api (r24285)
    • new Resource: CartridgeReset (BOOL, default = TRUE)
      when enabled, reset the emulated machine when changing cartridges
    • TODO: add GUI items to following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2, osx
    • cartridge_attach_image(type,name) and cartridge_detach_image(type) are now available in xplus4, look for types in cartridge.h
    • plus4cart_detach_cartridges() should no more be used (and will be made private later), use cartridge_detach_image(type) (-1 == all) instead
    • plus4cart_load_c1lo/_c1hi/_c2lo/_c2hi are associated to the internal roms and should no more be used (and will be made private later). actual roms should be loaded by changing the respective resources instead. ("c1loName", "c1hiName", etc)
    • cartridges should be instead attached using cartridge_attach_image(), look for types in cartridge.h. cartridge_attach_image(CARTRIDGE_PLUS4_DETECT) can be used to "smart attach" a binary image.
    • TODO: fix following ports: Amiga
    • to clearify: there should be a cartridge menu using the cartridge_... functions and types defined in cartridge.h to attach various types of carts, and there should be a roms menu, where the respective roms can be loaded by changing the associated resources.
    • TODO: add missing GUI items to following Ports: beos, dos, os/2, osx
    • NOTE: Resources "3plus1loName" and "3plus1hiName" were removed, because they were duplicates of "FunctionLowName" and "FunctionHighName" (essentially replace the former by the later)
    • TODO: fix following ports: Amiga
  • added model selection to x64dtv (r24287)
    • look at c64dtv/c64dtvmodel.h for models and functions, it works just like the c64 counterpart
    • TODO: add GUI items to following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2, osx
  • xpet, xvic, xplus4 now all support all SID engines (r24288)
    • TODO: change GUI items in following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2
  • video filter resources merged and made chip specific (r24298)
    • removed Resources: "PALEmulation" and "<CHIP>Scale2x"
    • new Resources: "<CHIP>Filter" (enum) VIDEO_FILTER_NONE, VIDEO_FILTER_CRT, VIDEO_FILTER_SCALE2X
    • TODO: change GUI items in following ports: amiga, dos, os/2
      Note: VDC and CRTC do not support scale2x

    • TODO: change GUI items in following ports: amiga, dos, os/2
      Note: VDC and CRTC do not support oddline phase/offset
  • video_render_initraw() takes additional render config parameter (r24308)

    • TODO: check following ports: amiga, beos, dos, os/2, osx
  • vsid is a seperate machine and splitted into a seperate binary (r24321)
    • vsid_mode is deprecated. change all if (vsid_mode) ... to if (machine_class == VICE_MACHINE_VSID)
      Note: in some cases checking for console_mode and/or video_disabled_mode might be better
      Note: if there are switch statements in archdep code which check for machine_class, then adding VICE_MACHINE_VSID to them might be required (one common spot seems to be in joystick_init_cmdline_options())
    • TODO: update following ports: amiga, dos, os/2, osx
    • TODO: ... and remove vsid_mode in main.c
    • TODO: add load/save settings (vsid) UI items for: os/2

    • TODO: replace get_pet_model in following ports: os/2, win32
    • TODO: ... and after doing so, remove get_pet_model
  • refactored canvas (r25369)
    • canvas->draw_buffer now stores the size of the visible part of the screen (visible_width, visible_height) and of the emulator's canvas size (canvas_physical_width, canvas_physical_height).
    • changed signature of video_viewport_resize(). It now takes 2 args, canvas and resize_canvas, a boolean. This function must be called with resize_canvas==0 if the emulator's window has been resized, and resize_canvas==1 if the emulated machine's screen size has changed (e.g. double size toggled, borders changed/removed...).
    • changed signature of video_canvas_resize(). It now takes 2 args, canvas and resize_canvas, a boolean. resize_canvas==0 means that the emulator's window has been resized, and resize_canvas==1 means the emulated machine's screen size has changed (e.g. double size toggled, borders changed/removed...). In the latter case, the implementation of the function should resize the emulator's window.
    • added video_canvas_can_resize(). It returns 0 if the emulator window is maximized (and therefore cannot be resized, because its size is fixed to be the display's size) and 1 if it is not (and therefore its size can be changed)
    • TODO: implement video_canvas_can_resize and change calls to video_viewport_resize and video_canvas_resize in ports. Linux (SDL, GTK+, Xaw), Win32 and MS-DOS are ready

Branches

Here is a short overview of all branches that are currently active in SVN, i.e. someone develops a new feature that soon will be merged into trunk. Note here the upcoming features, if some testing is required on specific platforms or there is something porters need to be aware of. When a branch was merged into trunk, the respective info should be moved to the Developer_log_old Page.


  • v2.3.9-remove-ddraw (fabbo)
  • 2.3-new-cpu-cores (blacky)
    • This branch is all about (old and) new cpu cores, it is meant to implement the following:
      • z80 support for x64/x64sc (z80 cp/m cartridge).
      • 65(S)C02 support as used in some accelerator carts, but also as direct 6502/6510 replacement.
      • 65CE02 support as direct 6502/6510 replacement.
      • 65802/65816 support as used in some accelerator carts, but also as direct 6502/6510 replacement (65802 only).
      • 6809/6309 support as used in the super pet.
      • 8088 support as used in a copro board for the cbm2 (able to run cp/m-86 and msdos 1.25).
  • driveupdate (soci)
    • The point is to have a single FDD emulation for all drives which need low level media emulation and caching. The disk image handling is also reworked to make simpler to use and extend it later. Some features were added like handling of d71 double sided emulation mode disk images, real 6502 FDC with GCR image (works for 1001 now, planned for others). Improved fault handling and updating of Dxx images, 1581 and other MFM drives needs some work. Planned is to get the 1571 MFM mode somehow working together with the GCR mode (probably not on the same type of image file), and maybe implement G64 image support for the IEEE drives. And of course all these changes brings some new bugs to fix. This is most likely not going to be finished in 2011, and maybe some parts should be migrated to trunk to get some of the ready stuff out earlier.
