Cet émulateur est également le plus complet des outils de développements X68000 existant aujourd’hui. Il s’agit d’un fork de l’émulateur XM6 v2.05 de PI avec une pléthore de nouvelles fonctionnalités. Les changements sont pour la plupart liés à l’interface utilisateur et un accent a été mis sur le développement et les fonctions de débogage plutôt que sur l’exactitude de l’émulation, cependant il y a suffisamment d’améliorations pour qu’il soit recommandé d’utiliser cette version plutôt que XM6 v2.06 finale.

Les changements:
– The configuration file (.ini) is now saved in UTF-8 format, which reduces
the size in typical cases. The non-Unicode edition still uses the local
code page, although it can now read UTF-8 configuration files.
– If the audio buffer starts getting overrun (due to fast-forwarding) the output
volume will be reduced. Note that it will take a fraction of a second for the
buffer to overflow when fast-forwarding begins. Until then, the audio data is
still good and will be played at normal volume. This might make it seem like
the audio latency is longer than it really is, or that fast-forwarding isn’t
responding right away, but it’s just a side effect, and it makes brief periods
of fast-forwarding less jarring. When coming out of fast-forward, all the bad
data is still flushed from the audio buffer immediately, as usual.
– Unformatted disk placeholders (I hesitate to call them « images ») are now
officially supported. Placeholders are empty files (size of 0) with the
extension « .unf » and they represent disks with no low-level formatting
whatsoever. They can even be created through the New Floppy Disk dialog.
– Such files might seem useless, but I use them frequently for testing how
user-disk creation modes behave. The results of formatting are captured
in a delta file (documented elsewhere), and any kind of exotic formatting
can be represented therein, even low-density (2DD) formats.
– As an expert-level feature, placeholder files are not given all the rights
and privileges of true images.

Bug fixes:
– Toggling the temporary-disable flag for Automatic Controller Mode could cause
unexpected results in rare situations. Several other issues were fixed as well.
– Fixed an embarrassingly stupid crash of my own making.
