AppleWin v188.8.131.52 is released. AppleWin (also known as Apple //e Emulator for Windows) is an open source software emulator for running Apple II programs in Microsoft Windows. AppleWin has support for most programs that could run either on the Apple II+ or the Apple IIe. By default, AppleWin emulates the Extended Keyboard IIe (better known as the Platinum IIe) with built-in 80-column text support, 128 kilobytes of RAM, two 5.25-inch floppy disk drives, a joystick, a serial card and 65C02 CPU. AppleWin supports lo-res, hi-res, and double hi-res graphics modes and can emulate both color and monochrome Apple II monitors; later versions of AppleWin also can emulate a television set used as a monitor. Both 40-column and 80-column text is supported.
AppleWin can emulate the Apple II joystick (using the PC’s default controller), paddle controllers (using the computer mouse), and can also emulate the Apple II joystick using the PC keyboard. AppleWin can also use the PC speaker to emulate the Apple II’s sound if no sound card is available (does not work under NT-based Windows versions). Full screen mode is available through the use of DirectX. Features added to the latest versions of AppleWin include Ethernet support using Uthernet, Mockingboard and Phasor sound card support, SSI263 speech synthesis, hard drive disk images and save states.
AppleWin v184.108.40.206 Changelog:
– [Change #357] Resurrected the AppleWin 1.25 « Color (Standard) » video mode as « Color (RGB Monitor) ».
This is equivalent to emulating RGB video, ie. a video mode with sharp text and pixels.
NB. Unlike AppleWin 1.25, this is now cycle-accurate, so demos that synchronise with the video scanner will work correctly.
– [Change #603] Removed support for v1 save-state files.
Any v1 save-state files should be loaded into AppleWin 1.27, and then re-saved to a v2 save-state file.
– [Change #597] Removed the functionality for CTRL+F10 to reveal the mouse cursor.
– [Change #585] Added a ‘Swap’ HDD button to the Configuration->Input property sheet.
– [Bug #608] Mockingboard’s 6522 TIMER1 wasn’t generating an interrupt quickly enough for Broadside’s detection routine.
