Title: JavaCPC 6.6.4 released
Post by: Devilmarkus on 23:47, 02 September 09
Hi together,
I decided to release v.6.6.4 of JavaCPC.
It has many improvements and some new features:

Quote
- Debugger improvements (Breakpoints, Break Instructions)
- Tape polarity changeable (Needed for some strange tapes)
- New displaying method allows DoubleBuffered in actual JAVA-update
- A virtual floppy drive as anchor window, moveable with mouse and
  zoomable (Double click with left/right mousebutton into the drive)
- Simple GIF-Recorder (Not perfect, but funny)
- New screenshot routine (Allows to catch also the filter/monitor mask)
- New greenscreen emulation
- Improved display filter (needs high performance PC's)
- JavaCPC's window position is stored now on exit
- Added Prodatron's Digitracker tools as internal applications
  (MOD converter and Player generator)
- CRTC improvements allow the demo "From Scratch" to be viewed fully
- Small bugfix in FDC emulation (allows to watch raster images
  from ConvImgCPC without read error)

For coders, the most useful things will be the new debugger features "Breakpoints" and "Break Instructions"
(http://cpc-live.com/new_debugger.png)

Break Instruction does the same than WinApe's feature:
It stops the emulation and opens the debugger when ED,FF is reached.

"Breakpoints" are already part in older versions, but now you can enable/disable them in debugger window. They are also more exact now. (Strange things happen during z80 cycles  ;D )

You can download your copy of JavaCPC as usual here:

Sourceforge project page seems to have problems... (I hope it will be available there, too, soon)

No. This is the total download number (Because I only update the version, but not the download itself)

Super!

One question, is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of the keyboard presses for the emulated joystick?
For some games I just want to hit the up arrow and move very little (so I hit it with a quick tap) but it invariably moves up to far. Just wondering.

It would be nice to have a feature in the program so that you could tune how the arrow keys (or the WASD or QAOP) works for the emulated joystick.

Anyways, thanks for such a great program! :-)

Hmmm I never had problems with the keyboard.
Fact is: CPC joystick sends the same keyboard signals to AY chip like the other keys on keyboard, too.
(Yes, the keyboard input is operated in sound-chip.)

Maybe JavaCPC doesn't run at it's speed as it should on your system? Tell me more about your PC configuration.

You can enable "Monitor -> Show FPS". Then you will get an info on the screen.
Should be about 50fps / 100% cpu.
