I saw that Haiku is installable in a VM. Perhaps an hope to have a try of ACE :)

Have a try. It works great. Don't forget to set USB-Tablet modus in the settings of VirtualBox. The mouse will move then smoother.
Nevertheless you should install Haiku directly on a PC, cause working on an emulator inside an emulator (virtualbox)...  :-\

Virtualbox being a virtualizer, there not so much an additionnal layer than with a traditionnal emulator. Anyway, i'll see if it's not too much of a hassle to install directly on a pc.

Thank you for your work on the Haiku version of Ace.

PulkoMandy

Hello there,


Version 1.15.0 beta is now available for download. I'm waiting for your feedback and bugreports as usual :)

Thank you very much.
I will test tonight.

Hello,
I have a question: is it possible to have full screen mode with the Haiku version of ACE with a particular PC hardware ? I misunderstood in Haiku's documentation. Some functions to support full screen are not yet implemented ?
Thanks.

PulkoMandy

The fullscreen mode should work, but it will not yet switch your video mode to 50Hz so there will be some tearing visible.

Zarnal

Something has certainly escaped me. I will reread the documentation more carefully. If I try full screen, I have " full windowed " mode but not full screen. In virtual machine or my real PC.
Thanks.

PulkoMandy

Are you using the latest version 0.17? In previous versions it didn't work yet. And in 0.17 it doesn't work perfectly either, the menu isn't hidden (but other parts of the interface are). I'll fix that in the next one.

Zarnal

No, not with 1.17 but with 1.16 and older versions. I just tested with 1.17 and it's actually much better. Thanks again.

I have very chopped sound. For exemple, when i do a "del" bip, it comes in small chunks and takes for ever.

I am under the latest snapshot of Haiku, under Virtualbox. I have no problems to play an MP3 under the media player, so it's not a global problem.
According to the vumeters, it's not a CPU or memory problem either...

Audio is on Spanish but it's not necessary to understand them.

Hello,


ACE 1.22.0 is available on the ACE homepage at http://ace.cpcscene.net  :D


It's recommended to use Haiku R1beta3 or a recent nightly build. 32bit version only still.


This version is the first to include the plugin SDK. Which means you can now write your own plugins if you want to. In the download package there are the sources for the built-in plugins (including the changes I made for Haiku). You can use this as a starting point if you want to try making your own plugins.


The change list from the ACE website for this version:



Improved plugins SDK.

       

  • New Spanish translation thanks to Juan Carlos Herran Martin.

       

  • Memory default contents now depends on chip type.

       

  • Removed tape to hard disc wrapper feature.

       

  • Added ability to emulate the GX4000.

       

  • Added fast preferences to quickly reconfigure ACE in the main basic configurations.

       

  • Added support for extended cartridges.

       

  • Improved virtual keyboard.

       

  • Improved symbols management window.

       

  • New AREXX commands.

       

  • Internal changes to ease portability.

       

  • Fixed minor bugs and regressions in GUI and plugins.

Big hurrah to PulkoMandy, the only one who was brave enough to port ACE on a non AmigaOS-like system.  8)
