    Great news !

    I just tested the new version :

    Mouse-emulation :
    The mouse doesn't move off the screen anymore, but the "auto-fire-bug" is still present in the new version - maybe even worse.
    The speed of the mouse is too fast for some games (e.g. I have a hard time hitting the items in "Oil Imperium&quot

    VSync :
    If V-Sync is activated, the emulation stutters every 5 seconds.
    The emulation gets a little jerky without v-sync regularly too, but it's not as worse without v-sync.
    V-sync on 60Hz refresh rate makes the ST run 17% faster (compare the music with vsync activated and without) - I don't know if this was the case on the real system...

    I'll test the new emu some more - THANKS CHUI

    Auto-Fire? When? What game?
    Keyboard/Joystick interrupt need a new patch for next release. Also mouse slow down.

    It's difficult synchronize 50Hz ST games with 60Hz Dreamcast, need a little delay, i have to think a better method.
    Music shutter sometimes because no threaded likes UAE4ALL, next release music emulation run a new thread.

    How does the virtual keyboard work in this release? It would be nice if "real" keyboard users could hide the on-screen one.

    if you not press L-Trigger, never show virtual keyboard.

    Real DC-keyboard would work always.
