Fusion v2.3 (PC version)


Free (kostenloser) Download



Changes to FUSION.EXE v2.3 - Mar 15, 2000
-----------------------------------------
* Completely re-wrote SCSI handling code. A 2MB buffer is now required
(taken from the available PC memory BEFORE selecting how much memory
the emulation will have). This is necessary for large block transfer
devices such as raid controllers and scanners. The problem with ZIP
drives not recognizing a cartridge has been fixed by the new code.

* Increased the speed of the emulation on PII/III machines by as much as
50%. 486/PI machines will see no increase, and possibly a little slower
than v2.2 (but still much faster than v2.0 and earlier).

* Fixed a few more CPU core quirks.

* Created a new video driver specifically for the odd display sized
notebooks (such as Sony's VAIO C1 and Sharp's Mobeus). Custom display
modes DO NOT have to be created with a VESA utility like UNIVBE. The
new driver is appropriately named, "notebook.fvd".



Changes to SETUP.EXE v2.2 - Mar 15, 2000
----------------------------------------
* Changed SCSI selection completely. You can now have any SCSI device
virtually mapped to any Macintosh SCSI ID. By pressing the up/down
cursor keys, you can select which Macintosh SCSI device you want to
change. By pressing the left/right cursor keys, you can choose which
PC SCSI (or emulated SCSI) device will be mapped to the SCSI ID. Up to
7 devices (ID's 0-6) and up to 4 controllers can be used. IDE and ATAPI
devices that have ASPI support will show up as a SCSI device, and are
usable with the emulation as a SCSI device. Parallel ZIP, IDE ZIP,
IDE CDROMs, and other IDE/ATAPI devices have been successfully tested.

The values under "Control" represent the SCSI host adapter number
followed by the SCSI ID number. For example, the value 1:5 would be
host adapter 1, SCSI unit 5.

* Corrected NT/Win2K memory problem. Available memory is now reported
like Windows (768MB free). You will need to make sure that you do
not select more RAM than you have, or you will get an error message
when starting the emulation.

* Changed custom port selection (PORTx) to allow port addresses down to 0100.



Changes to FUSION.EXE v2.2 - Feb 01, 2000
-----------------------------------------
* Added new fast FPU handling code, taken from our extensive FPU coding
developed with the Amiga version of FUSION. Fast math is setup in
the ADVANCED menu of the SETUP.EXE program. The default is Y (yes).

* Added new native QuickDraw acceleration routines for video. This code
was also developed with the Amiga version of FUSION. QDXL is setup in
the VIDEO menu of the SETUP.EXE program. The default is Y (yes).

* Fixed a problem with the built-in CD-ROM support. If multiple CD-ROM
drives were in a system, only the first CD-ROM drive would be used,
even if the second drive was the drive selected to be used.

* Added Windows NT and Windows 2000 support. Because of the nature of
these two operating systems, certain operations are not possible
(serial and sound). All other features work fine.

* Faster CPU core along with a few corrections.

* New video drivers for Sony C1 and Toshiba laptops having odd size
resolutions.

* New video driver for large (1600x1200) size screens in millions of
colors modes. This driver requires 8MB of RAM instead of the normal
2MB.

* Added back older method of keyboard handling, giving 3 different
possible methods: HDWARE - hardware polling, DIRECT - direct key
codes, BIOS - bios scanned keys.

* Fixed problem with PORT B not being able to handle serial devices.
(PORT A worked fine for both serial and printers, but PORT B only
worked with printers).



Changes to SETUP.EXE v2.2 - Feb 01, 2000
----------------------------------------
* Changed entire interface so that multiple items are contained in
a single field.

* Changed interface so that all mouse events on a new field are
ignored. This prevents accidental changing of data.

* Fixed a problem with memory allocation after setting up or
viewing a ROM image selection.

* Added extra method of keyboard handling.

* Disabled NETWORK option when under Windows. File transfers
must be done using 'TRANSFUSE' from the Mac side.

* Added ability to completely ignore one of the mouse buttons.

=======================================================================

Changes to FUSION.EXE v2.0 - May 16, 1999
-----------------------------------------
* Fixed 3 of the 1MB ROMs ($064DC91D, $06684214, $FF7439EE). These
3 ROMs come from machines that do not have an FPU (LC040 machines).
We do NOT recommend you use these ROMs as FPU performance is
extremely poor. These ROMs had problems with scroll buttons.

* Added support for another 512K ROM ($35C28F5F).

* Fixed various FPU emulation problems.

* Changed network drive support to use DOS driver letters instead
of the entire hard drive. This allows DOS partitions on drives
having different (foreign) formats to be used with the emulation
without the chance of corrupting the drive. NOTE: You will still
need the latest version of PCExchange if your hard drive partition
is setup as a FAT32 partition OR your partition is larger than
1.0 gig.

* Improved network drive performance via an internal caching mechanism.

* Fixed SoundBlaster 16, AWE32/64 support so that the plug-n-play is
used instead of the DOS driver.

* Used a new version of WDOSX that fixes shut down problems on fast
(300+Mhz) machines.

* New version of WDOSX fixes memory limitation of 64MB with certain
configurations.

* Added ability to run FUSION from within Windows (via a DOS box).

* Completely re-wrote audio code to fix the disappearing audio
problem reported with certain configurations. Improved CPU core
for a small gain in speed.

* Added two new video drivers that support laptop machines that use
odd size modes (like Sony's C1 using 1024x480).

* Added Japanese localization.



Changes to SETUP.EXE v2.0 - May 16, 1999
----------------------------------------
* Changed floppy drive selection so that non-standard floppy drive
letters can be selected.

* Changed PORT A/B selection. You can now select COM1-4 and LPT1-3,
with the standard port address and IRQs being shown. You can also
set a custom port and IRQ if you choose, for those non-standard
serial and parallel configurations.

* Changed CD-ROM identification code. If you had two CD-ROM drives
with a drive between the two drive letters (ie CD-ROM letters
E: and G:, with a ZIP drive as F:) the 2nd CD-ROM drive letter was
not correct.

* Changed NETWORK support selection to use DOS drive letters instead
of entire devices.

* Made changes necessary for Japanese localization.
