AWeb APL Lite Released
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 22 March 2018 02:18

AWeb APL Lite: New version of the famous Amiga Browser, these are the news:

Adds support for AmiSSL 4, and is compiled with gcc 5.4

And AWebJS has support for sending ARexx commands to a host, so you can use it as a standalone ARexx replacement. See the tests in the src directory for example code.

AWeb is a fast standards complient (by that I mean it complies to the standards it supports, not that it supports all standards...) HTML4.01 browser for AmigaOS. It has a powerful AREXX based scripting engine, and in local mode can execute commands from with html pages. This makes it very suitable for a documentation viewer, or GUI for a scripts etc.

AWeb APL Lite 3.5.12: Download


This software is released under the AWeb Public Licence, please read the file apl.txt included in this archive for more information.


AWeb 3.5 may be installed by using the Installer script provided. It is recommended that you back up any previous installations of AWeb or install in a separate directory, but actually there should not be any real problems.

WinUAE 3.6.1
Posted by Toni Wilen - 04 March 2018 20:23
WinUAE 3.6.1 (04.03.2018) released.

3.6.0 bugs fixed:

- Crash when running on first Windows 10 release version (build 10240) .
- D3D11 mode fullscreen to/from windowed mode change crashes/blank screens.
- D3D11 mode on screen leds on the fly on/off switching.
- D3D11 mode screenshot via GUI button didn’t work.
- Floppy sound type selection was not loaded correctly from config file.
- It was not possible to create "DOS" file names like "AUX" to directory filesystem.

Older bugs fixed:

- Floppy sound used incorrectly empty drive volume level in certain situations.
- PPC emulation interrupt handling rewrite, fixes for example hang/crash problems with NE2000 based network adapters under OS4.
- Not all Advanced chipset options reset when compatible checkbox was ticked.
- Autoscale ignored small vertical display areas in very top of display in some situations.
- Fixed random crash when at least one Input panel custom event string was set, Restart was clicked and then emulation was started again.
- Blizzard SCSI Kit IV (possibly others) SCSI phase error in certain situations.
- Added better validation to clipboard sharing IFF parsing to prevent crashes if data is truncated.
– -joyport2 -config entry incorrectly used port 3 slot.
- Game Ports panel selected Custom input mapping reverted to none in some situations.
- Restart didn't completely free configured emulated network cards.
- Other misc bugs fixed.

New features:

- OCS/ECS only BPLCON2 undocumented feature: "illegal" PF1 or PF2 value is now accurately emulated in dual playfield mode.
- If selected D3D11 fullscreen refresh rate is "default": always prefer highest supported refresh rate.
- Optional threaded emulated RTG VRAM to host OS surface color space conversion/copy.
- Added "Identity" checkbox to Add harddrive panel. If ticked and ATA identity can be read (Direct IDE connection, compatible USB adapter): real ATA identity data is used in emulated ATA device instead of generic UAE generated and drive appears exactly as it does in real hardware (identical name, geometry etc).
- CHS-only IDE drives can now be mounted in emulation and they appear with real size and geometry when using USB adapters that allow identity read but does not support CHS (for example common JMicron based adapters).

New emulated expansions:

- A.L.F.3
- Elsat Mega Ram HD
- Progressive Peripherals & Software Zeus 040

and more as usual.

[bug reports in this thread will be ignored. as usual too.]

Warp Engine SCSI driver converted for PP&S Zeus 040 (and others)
Posted by Toni Wilen - 28 February 2018 20:51
And now something totally different: MacroSystem Warp Engine warpdrive.device SCSI driver converted to other 53C710 based SCSI controllers.

This quick project started when I saw request from wmaciv asking for working PP&S Zeus 040 SCSI driver. Official driver is quite bad, it uses all CPU time and is quite buggy.
I took the challenge because technically it should be easy (and it was!), 53C710 is all-in-one SCSI chip, no external DMA or other hardware needed so the "only" task was remapping 53C710 registers.

There was two obvious choices for driver, A4091 or Warp Engine. I chose Warp Engine because Warp Engine ROM driver is in normal relocatable executable format (+small loader) which made it easy to disassemble. Note that 53C720 is too different and can't be used with 53C710 driver or vice versa. All later variants (including 53C8xx) are fully or almost compatible with 53C720.

Executable version (run it in shell, drives get detected and partitions mounted) Zeus 040 driver was quickly done under emulation (I don't have Zeus 040) and surprisingly it worked perfectly on real hardware too (I didn't really expect it..). ~8M/s speed using SCSI2SDv6 with over 90% CPU availability.

Next step was ROM version (not yet tested, Zeus 040 has unusual ROM chip package size). And finally I also did two mostly useless versions: one for A4091 and another for A4000T built-in SCSI.

Included drivers:

warpdrive_a4000t: Executable/rommable A4000T driver.
warpdrive_a4091.rom: A4091 ROM driver. (No executable version because A4091 does not have no-autoboot jumper)
warpdrive_zeus040: Executable Zeus 040 driver.
warpdrive_zeus040.rom: Zeus 040 ROM driver (needs odd/even splitting).

A4091 and A4000T drivers are emulation only tested but I expect them to work because Zeus 040 driver worked perfectly fine on real hardware
Ignores SCSI ID/mode jumpers: ID=7, 100ns sync mode (fastest possible).
ROM version mode can be changed if needed by changing single value using hex editor.
Executable versions take optional parameter (0 to 7) which matches Warp Engine K, J and H jumper setting.

Currently only uploaded to the zone ( If spreading hacked files based on 3rd party drivers is not ok, I'll replace them with patches against Warp Engine ROM image.

AspireOS 2.0 Codename: Titan

Open source AmigaOS clone for i386 computers. This is a great and cheap alternative if you want a modern Amiga like system. There are lots of games and software for this OS. In this AspireOS live-cd I have only included software that are well tested and important to get stared.

Drivers are limited and it might not even boot with your hardware. For a trouble free experience I recommend ACER aspire one 110, 150 or zg5.

This OS can be used for most modern tasks. Media player, web-browser, gfx and audio software are included. Legacy Amiga software like DOpus 5.

This is a ISO file that you can burn to a CD or DVD. After that is done you have a live-CD that you can boot from any i386 hardware with optical drive.

PFS3AIO v3.0 Final
Posted by Toni Wilen - 11 February 2018 17:28
PFS3AIO 3.0 final is now available from Aminet.


- Bug fixes, including finally fixed nasty bug causing Wrong Index Block ID
(and others) if partition was >=5G and lots of small files were created
very quickly, for example unpacking archive with thousands of small files.
This bug has most likely existed since PFS3 introduced >=5G partition
- Compiled with m68k optimized GCC 6
(, 16k smaller than
previous pfs3aio.
- Some HD controllers modify MaxTransfer after filesystem has been
initialized, which was ignored by previous versions.
- Automatic max transfer limit is only enabled if scsi.device version is v36
or newer and older than v50.
- Limit Direct SCSI mode max transfer size to 65535 blocks (~32MB).
- Automatically attempt to increase number of buffers if all buffers are in
use and more buffers are required.
- Added support for new OS 3.1.4 filesystem mount flags. (SCSIDIRECT,
- Shows more detailed information in error requesters (access mode, start
block, end block, SCSI details if SCSI Direct)
- Includes unsupported and experimental >104G partition support. Shows
warning if enabled during formatting.
- ACTION_DIE (unmount) stability fix.
- Filename changed from pfs3_aio-handler to pfs3aio.


PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #7 (Yet another attempt of final....)

PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #7

- ACTION_DIE (unmount) was replied too early, KillDev that comes with IDEFix crashed with memory list corruption.
- Test #2 TD64/NSD test fix didn't make any sense, was reverted.
- Also add sometimes used PFS\1 and PDS\1 to FileSystem.resource.


PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #6 (still bugs found, It looks like I'll never finish this....)

PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #6

- OS 3.1.4 SCSIDIRECT option READ CAPACITY bug fix.
- UNSAFEQUIT was not set, it should be or ACTION_DIE with open handles could cause crashes. (Was set in AROS version)
- ACTION_DIE crash fixed (StackSwap start/exit code was rewritten for non-AROS version, of course it had a bug..)
- Previously failed init (for example if OpenDevice() failed) caused pfs3 to wait forever. Now it returns error and exits normally.


PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #5 (#4 wasn't final after all, added lost v2 features)

- pfs3aio is again rommable and loadmodule etc.. compatible. Feature was lost during AROS gcc to "normal" gcc port.
- pfs3aio-custom is also included again. Version for drivers that have broken filesystem loader and assume single hunk and no relocation entries.


PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #4 (probably almost final)

- Added embedded struct Resident, enables c:version <device name>: to report name and version.
- Added access mode id and also full sense data if Direct SCSI mode to read/write error messages.
- Removed not very useful "Make sure disk is inserted" part in read/write error messages.
- Removed code duplication, combined separate disk.c read/write functions which were nearly identical.

Access mode IDs: 1 = standard, 2 = Direct SCSI, 3 = TD64, 4 = NSD


PFS3AIO 3.0 Test #3

- Direct SCSI writes failed with error requester if it needed max transfer splitting (test #2)
- Limit Direct SCSI mode max transfer to 65535 blocks (~32MB) which is READ(10) and WRITE(10) max.


PFS3AIO v3.0 Test #2

Don't use, see post #42.

- TD64/NSD capability test was not detected as failed if DoIO() succeeded but test read buffer was not modified.
- Added support for new OS 3.1.4 filesystem mount flags. (SCSIDIRECT, SUPERFLOPPY and DISABLENSD). (Don't ask me!)
- Include "PFS3AIO" in embedded version string.
- Added more information (accessed block, start and end of partition block) to out of bounds access error requesters.


PFS3AIO v3.0 Test #1 (Based on v19 PFS3)

- Finally 100% fixes wrong index block (and similar) errors, see below for details. Thanks to Michiel Pelt for helping to find this nasty bug.
- Fixed two (probably) harmless off-by-one bugs.
- Compiled with m68k optimized GCC 6 (, 17k smaller than previous pfs3aio.
- Some HD controllers modify MaxTransfer after filesystem has been initialized which was ignored by previous versions.
- Automatic 0x20000 max transfer limit is only enabled if scsi.device version is v36 or newer and older than v50.
- Automatically attempt to increase number of buffers if all buffers are in use and more buffers are required.
- Includes experimental >104G partition support. Shows warning if enabled during formatting.

Includes all previous pfs3aio features:

- Full KS 1.x compatibility.
- 68000+ compatible.
- TD64, NSD and Direct SCSI supported and autodetected.
and more...

Souces available from (and pfsdoctor)
Source tree also includes experimental >4G file size (48 bit file length field) support but it is not enabled in this version. Contact me if you want to test it.

>104G partition support and >4G file size support requires reformat and on-disk structures are not anymore compatible with old PFS3 or PFSDoctor versions. ( Note: command line only, no GUI like in official pfsdoctor)

Official version will be released in few weeks or so.


This version 100% fixes very old (has at least existed since commercial 18.x versions, possibly much longer) bug that causes wrong index block and similar errors when creating lots of new files/dirs quickly. PFSDoctor also reports errors, for example "x reserved blocks not used but allocated".

Trigger condition:
- >=5G partition size ("super index" partition mode)
- Lots of small files created quickly (for example unpacking archive with thousands of small files, for example EmeraldMines_v1.0_CD.lha)
