EmuCR:WinUAEWinUAE v5.2.0 Beta 8 is released. WinUAE is the commodore amiga emulator for Windows. WinUAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don’t know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680×0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provide very good graphics and sound capabilities. Its first incarnation, the A1000, appeared in 1985, followed by the highly successful A500 and A2000 models. WinUAE is a port of the originally written for Unixish systems UAE; but over time, it seems the Windows port, WinUAE has become the best version available on any platform. WinUAE is free software: you are welcome to distribute copies of it and/or modify it, under certain conditions. There is no warranty of any kind for UAE. For more details concerning these issues, please read the GNU General Public License, which describes the terms under which WinUAE is distributed.

WinUAE v5.2.0 Beta 8 Changelog:
- Clicking GamePorts panel remap/test crashed in some situations (remap device, change device type to something that has less events, remap device)
- In some situations GamePorts remap setup (number/type of buttons etc) didn't match selected device type (mouse, joystick, gamepad etc) and changing it did nothing.
- Better vertical positioning of NTSC mode in normal Overscan mode. Previously calculation used PAL max overscan height. Overscan+ and Overscan in NTSC mode now have almost same vertical positioning.
American Laser Games/Picmatic updates. Discussion thread here: https://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=84888
- LD serial port communication timing adjusted and previously unemulated LD commands implemented (REPEAT and MARK SET). Now Picmatic Marbella Vice lightgun game works.
- ALG/Picmatic LD player always unpaused after exiting GUI, even if it was paused before entering GUI.
- ALG/Picmatic statefile support. Note that complete data is not saved, for example LD and NVRAM paths. Matching config file must be loaded first.
- Picmatic (Marbella Vice) player one/two gun selection implemented. Oddly there are two methods: parallel port first data pin selects gun but it is not used when in gun calibration service menu, only during game play. Other method is IO port at $f60000 which is used both in calibration menu and during game play. (Maybe Picmatic games had different hardware versions?). ALG uses joystick port #2 button #2 pin.
- ALG and Picmatic (Marbella Vice) input events now match. Picmatic games use different hardware and different joystick port pins than ALG, emulation now automatically remaps Picmatic events to matching ALG input events.
- Genlock overlay position relative to Amiga display does not anymore change when display panel settings are changed (lores/hires/double etc). Genlock image position was not correctly centered if genlock image size was (much) larger or (much) smaller than Amiga display size. Do not scale if video height is almost same as Amiga display height (+-8 lines). This fixes ugly horizontal artifacts when odd and even lines get "mixed" mid screen.
