I'm really excited about this new version! Thanks John.

It runs very smooth on my system full screen and windowed, but the sound is very choppy all the time. I have Windows XP Pro and I tried upgrading to DirectX 9, but it didn't help. I'm using a Celeron 500.

To do the port to Windows, a number of features have been removed, including
the GUI.

I hardly ever use the GUI. I associate BIN with Z26 and just run the games from explorer. For games that require special switches, I just set it up so I can right click and start a game with 32k Tigervision or Keyboard Controllers or whatever.

The feature that I really am sad to see go is the ability to constantly display the number of scanlines while the emulator is running. This really helps in development and debugging.
