The Atari2600 emulator Stella has been updated today. Here is what is new in version 1.4.1: Fixed PAL sound issues. PAL games now should sound correct (no distortion or missing sounds), but some games may still run too fast. This is still a work-in-progress, and will be fixed in Stella 1.5.
Cleaned up the SDL event gathering loop. This should hopefully fix the problems with "double-pumping events" reported by some Windows users. Event gathering and dispatching is now much faster as well.
Fixed a bug where the Control or Alt keys could be assigned to some event, but they could never be used. Control/Alt can now be used for any event.
Updated stella.pro file to work with the latest Good2600 ROMset release (Thanks go to Voch for helping to maintain the stella.pro file).
For the Windows port; removed requirement for ROM files to be named *.bin in the StellaX frontend. The ROM's can now have any name, but ZIP-files are not yet supported.
For the Windows port; fixed the problems with the included modified SDL library and Windows 98 users. Stella should now run in Windows 98.
For the OSX port; added preference to allow user to select the directory in which ROM images are stored. This sets the default directory to start the browsing for a ROM in, and doesn't preclude the user from selecting a file outside that directory.
For the OSX port; fixed preferences bug where Preferences changed before a game was opened were not being saved.
