tnx for answer :)
I changed it to:
;screen=large
;screen=full
;screen=small

and removed at all section:
;Full Screen /Window Size

to have full control of window/full screen mode (I use 1 batch with DOS "choice" command to control configs of every emulator)

What can You say about "Fast Drive Emulation" in WinApe ?
Has this option problem with compatibility (like floppy drive speed control in WINUAE) and that is why is disabled by default ?

Please feel free to change it.

Most cracks will work ok in Fast Mode.
But there are a lot of Originals in the GameBase, that might not like it.
And i could not be bothered checking every game twice, to see if it works with it or not. :P
and forgot to change it back.

--------
This needs correcting in the script.
Then if True Drive Emul: is changed to YES in GameBase, it will switch it off.

Code: Select all

;*************************************************
;True Drive / Fast Disk Emulation (Original Disks)
;*************************************************
	If TrueDriveEmu = YES
		Set_INI_Value(1||Drives||Fast Disc||false)
	Else
		Set_INI_Value(1||Drives||Fast Disc||true)
	End If

Hey Dax, that was quick! 8)

Most of us will already have the emulators from previous versions.
But for those who don't, here are the Amstrad Emulators.

Unzip to AmstradMania folder and overwrite any files if prompted.
Run emulator setup wizard.

Is any of you using Amstradmaia V6 with the Gamex front end?
Asking this because I cannot figure out how to set it up. I have other Gamebase packages running fine with Gameex but with Amstradmania I do not know which emulator to use. 2 of them will not autoload disks and winApe I think is giving a video prompt error message....

Hi Guys,

I finally managed to have a working emulator for the Gamebase CPC which is CPCE. It runs pretty well except de fact I do not know how to display in non interlaced mode. I am running my emus on a crt monitor and actually the default resolution of CPCE is something like 640x480 which is very flickery.
I heard it is possible to play with the CPCE config INI file but my trials to play with Width and Height settings have been unsuccessful. I do not figure out how to set the INI file to have CPCE displaying a low resolution non interlaced video in fullscreen :roll:

I am using a VGA card wich is capable to handle almost all the LowRes resolutions.
