GroovyMame - Windows  GroovyMame - linux  GroovyMame Source

What's New:

Updated to latest MAME source.

Free42  Free42 - Linux (64bit)  Free42 - Mac  Free42 - Android  Free42 (Source)

What's New:

3.0.11a (Windows and Linux)
- More efficient display updating, so long-running programs that update the display a lot don't waste a lot of CPU time repainting the display faster than the human eye can see, and spend more time actually running the program instead. Note that this update is for Windows and Linux only, because the Android, iOS, and MacOS versions already worked this way.

3.0.11
- Implemented LCLV: CLV for local variables only. The regular CLV now works on global variables only.
- RND in ALL mode now rounds like in SCI 11, instead of doing nothing.
- HEAD, when applied to a string in a numbered register, would corrupt the string if it was 16 characters long before the call (8 characters in the binary version). Fixed.
- Y^X accuracy improvements with integer X.
- Fixed DUPN 2 in 4STK mode. It used to duplicate X into T and Y into Z. DUPN in NSTK mode was not affected by this bug.
- Added WIDTH and HEIGHT functions. These always return 131 and 16, respectively; this may not seem very useful, but can be used in programs that are meant to work in both Free42 and Plus42, to allow them to take advantage of the larger display when running in Plus42.
- L4STK didn't pad the stack to 4 levels when used without FUNC. Fixed.
- Binary version: ROTXY and DATE+ rounded toward negative infinity instead of rounding toward zero. Fixed.
- Windows version: comes in 64-bit and 32-bit versions now.
- Windows and Linux versions: Now support fractional display scaling.
