Unlike most other open source ST emulators which try to give you a good environment for running GEM applications, Hatari tries to emulate the hardware as close as possible so that it is able to run most of the old Atari games and demos. Because of this, it may be somewhat slower than less accurate emulators. 3) Compiling and installing --------------------------- For using Hatari, you need to have installed the following libraries: Required: - The SDL library v1.2.10 or newer (http://www.libsdl.org) - The zlib compression library (http://www.gzip.org/zlib/) Optional: - The PNG image library for PNG format screenshots and to decrease AVI video recording file sizes (http://www.libpng.org/) - The GNU Readline library for Hatari debugger command line editing - The Xlib library to support Hatari Python UI window embedding on systems with the X window system (Linux and other unixes) - The portaudio library for Falcon microphone handling - The IPF support library (http://www.softpres.org/download) Don't forget to also install the header files of these libraries for compiling Hatari (some Linux distributions use separate development packages for these header files)! For compiling Hatari, you need a C compiler (preferably GNU C), and a working CMake (v2.8 or newer) installation, see http://www.cmake.org/ for details. CMake can generate makefiles for various flavours of "Make" (like GNU-Make) and various IDEs like Xcode on Mac OS X. To run CMake, you've got to pass the path to the sources of Hatari as parameter, for example run the following if you are in the topmost directory of the Hatari source tree: cmake . If you're tracking Hatari version control, it's preferable to do the build in a separate build directory as above would overwrite the (non-CMake) Makefiles coming with Hatari: mkdir -p build cd build cmake .. Have a look at the manual of CMake for other options. Alternatively, you can use the "cmake-gui" program to configure the sources with a graphical application or "ccmake" to configure them with ncurses UI. For your convenience we also ship an old-fashioned configure script which can be used as a wrapper for running cmake. Type "./configure --help" to see the options of this script. Assuming that you've used the Makefile generator of CMake, and cmake finished the configuration successfully, you can compile Hatari by typing "make". If all works fine, you'll get the executable "hatari" in the src/ subdirectory of the build tree. You can then install the emulator by typing "make install". 3.1) WinUAE and "old" UAE CPU cores By default Hatari is built with the "old" UAE CPU core used in the earlier Hatari releases, but versions starting from v1.5 support also new & experimental WinUAE CPU core which offers more cycle accurate 030 & DSP emulation and from v1.6 onwards also working 030 MMU emulation. The WinUAE CPU core can be enabled by toggling the ENABLE_WINUAE_CPU variable in the Hatari CMake configuration (e.g. with the interactive "ccmake" program). Alternatively, you can run "./configure --enable-winuae-cpu", which will run cmake with the correct parameters. The plan is to eventually have WinUAE CPU core enabled by default and deprecate the "old" UAE CPU core, but currently WinUAE CPU core: - is lacking all the ST/STE specific tweaks and proper testing for ST/STE compatibility - despite better emulation, it still doesn't run all the Falcon programs that run with the "old" core although it works better for most of them - doesn't have full debugger support It's recommended to use Hatari built with the "old" (default) UAE CPU core for ST/STE emulation and the new WinUAE core for Falcon emulation. And test also the old core if Falcon programs don't work with the new one... 3.2) IPF support using capsimage library Hatari can use the optionnal capsimage library to access IPF and CTR files. Those files are created using the Kryoflux board and allow to record MFM exact copies of original games, including the protection. Version 4.2 of the library allows to access IPF files, while the more recent version 5.1 fixes some bugs, as well as adding support for CTR files. Since version 5.1 is not yet available for all OSes in binary form, Hatari still default to version 4.2 (but you can compile capsimage 5.1 sources to build your library). You can change this by modifying "SET(CAPSIMAGE_VERSION 4)" into cmake/FindCapsImage.cmake Refer to http://softpres.org/download and get the corresponding file from the "User Distribution" section that matches your OS. For version 4.2, you should have the following files in your include path : /usr/local/include/caps/ capsimage.h fdc.h form.h For version 5.1, you should have the following files in your include path : /usr/local/include/caps5/ CapsAPI.h CapsFDC.h CapsForm.h CapsLibAll.h CapsLib.h CapsLibVersion.h ComLib.h CommonTypes.h You should also copy the libcapsimage.so* files in your library path, for example in /usr/local/lib/caps/ or /usr/local/lib/caps5/ 3.3) Notes for Linux distribution packagers TOS tester in tests/tosboot/ directory can be used to verify that Hatari was built fine enough that it's able to boot all tested TOS versions in various different HW configurations and run some GEMDOS based tests. For EmuTOS, use version v0.8.7 or newer, older versions are buggy and fail the GEMDOS tests. If Hatari package will have two application menu entries for Hatari, one for the Python UI embedding Hatari, and another one for the plain SDL version, the latter could open also a terminal window for Hatari command line debugger and its console messages: x-terminal-emulator -T "Hatari debug window, invoke debugger with AltGr+Pause" -e hatari tools/hatari-tos-register.sh is a minimal example of Linux init script registering Hatari as a (binfmt_misc) handler for TOS binaries. Alternatively one could add a mime type for TOS binaries with xdg-mime: http://portland.freedesktop.org/xdg-utils-1.0/xdg-mime.html But registering handlers for mime-types seems desktop specific. 3.3.1) Known distro problems Old RHEL 5 and the derived CentOS v5.x Linux distributions ship with a broken readline library: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=499837 To get CMake readline detection and linking working on them, you need to give these as extra arguments to the "cmake" command: -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS=-lncurses -DCMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS=-lncurses They also have too old Python/PyGtk version for the python based Hatari scripts. Here are patches for Hatari v1.5/v1.6 Python UI: http://listengine.tuxfamily.org/lists.tuxfamily.org/hatari-devel/2012/01/msg0000 8.html 4) Running Hatari ----------------- For information about how to use the running emulator, please read the file doc/manual.html. Here are just some hints for the impatient people: * Before you can run the emulator, you need a TOS ROM image. If one named as "tos.img" is neither in the data directory of the emulator (DATADIR variable in CMake configuration), or in the current directory, Hatari will ask you to select one. - Hatari binary packages ship unmodified EmuTOS ROM image with them (renamed as tos.img), but you need an original Atari TOS ROM image for best compatibility. For more information on EmuTOS, see doc/emutos.txt. * While the emulator is running, you can open the configuration menu by pressing F12, the F11 key will toggle fullscreen/windowed mode. Pressing ALTGR-q will quit the emulator. 5) Contact ---------- If you want to contact the authors of Hatari, please have a look at the file doc/authors.txt for the e-mail addresses or use the Hatari mailing list.

I.e. pausing emulation doesn't cause time skips when unpausing - Fix slow mouse when absolute mode is used with scale values - MFP changes : - Fixed priority errors when simultaneous interrupts happened - MFP's IRQ should be delayed by 4 cycles before reaching the CPU - MFP's IRQ signal was not correctly updated in some cases - Handle the IACK cycles between CPU and MFP during an exception - FDC changes : - Better delays for all the GAPs inside a track - Emulate the disk's rotation and its angular position to get accurate delays when accessing a sector header - Internal timer for FDC was wrong and sometimes slower than expected - Correct delay for type I commands with "verify" bit=1 - GEMDOS HD emulation changes : - Support Fforce() for GEMDOS HD emulated files and close at Pterm*() all internal handles to emulated files program had left open - Fix: cut file and dir names to 8+3 chars like all TOS versions do - Fix: GEMDOS HD emulation overwrote last 28 bytes of basepage space for the started process command line (with the program header) - Fix: Fwrite() content wasn't flushed to disk on each write, so later Fopen() + Fread()s calls on such files (if they were not closed in the meanwhile) could get data that was out of date. - Fix: Dfree() return value Emulator: - Fix: problems with run-time CPU type changing - Fix: MIDI IRQs were not enabled if MIDI was enabled at run-time. MIDI toggling will now imply reset - Much improved console redirection functionality and a separate --conout option for it (--bios-intercept doesn't anymore imply console redirection) - Fixed a bug with the axes' mapping in the joystick's detection - Display handling: - Fix: max resolution limit wasn't handled properly for ST mode. - Don't change TOS-calculated font size for VDI mode. - Setup NVRAM video mode based on VDI mode, when in VDI mode. This makes VDI mode work with EmuTOS also under Falcon emulation which is useful as EmuTOS doesn't support native VIDEL expanders - Limit VDI screen memory usage to 300kB, this allows upto 2048x1200 monochrome and 1024x600/800x768 16-color VDI screens - GEMDOS HD emulation: - Fix: to DTA host filename cutting to 8+3 chars when whole filename was < 12 chars (caused EmuTOS crash) - Give warning if GEMDOS dir/file path exceeds 8+3 characters (as those won't work with real TOS) - New --gemdos-case option to specify whether new dir/filenames are forced to be created in upper (default) or lower case - Giving empty string as GEMDOS HD dir disables GEMDOS HD emulation - SDL GUI: - Fileselector has "CWD" button for changing to Hatari's work directory - Fileselector remembers previous position which is nicer with large directories - Make the drive leds blink with a brighter green when the FDC is executing a command - Profiler: - Fix: profiler assert on invalid PC register values - Fix: profiler usage in debugger files invoked by breakpoints - Fix: profiler CPU & DSP cycles information is for previous instruction - Fix: WinUAE CPU requires cycles counter usage for getting current CPU instruction cycles - Profiler provides timing information, based on used cycles - Profiler provides CPU instruction cache misses information when using cycle-exact WinUAE CPU core (which is Falcon emu default) - Profiler top instruction count/cycles/misses lists show the related instructions - For DSP, profiler adds min/max cycle difference info to disassembly - New "addresses" subcommand can be used to see addresses through which code passed during profiling (e.g. while program seems frozen, this gives much better overview of code that is being run, than cpu trace) - New "callers" subcommand lists all addresses from which loaded symbols' addresses were "called" from. This way one can e.g. find in which contexts interrupt handlers were called and it can be used to construction program execution callgraph - New "save" subcommand saves profile address and caller information to given file, with extra information needed for post-processing - New "stack" subcommand that can be used to get backtraces during profiling with symbols, for ':noinit' backtraces - Debugger: - New ':noinit' and ':quiet' breakpoint options. Quiet option removes most of breakpoint matching "noise" and ':noinit' breakpoints can be used with "profile stack" command, to prevent profile data and related callstack information from being reseted on breakpoint match - "blitter" and "dsp" subcommand added to "info" command, to show blitter register values and DSP state (e.g. stack content) - "prg" subcommand added to "symbols" command, for loading debug symbols from DRI/GST symbol table in last started program - "step" and "next" commands added for single stepping CPU and DSP code -> 's' shortcut is now for "step", not "save" - "--disasm" option for selecting between UAE core and external CPU code dissassembler and setting output option flags for latter - When -D option is used, also undefined/illegal DSP instructions and DSP stack under/overflows invoke debugger, not just CPU issues - Fix: when several breakpoints should have triggered on the same address, only first was handled - Fix: after breakpoint, 'c <n>' continues one instruction too little - Fix: tracking breakpoint values were updated only when all conditions matched, now they can be also used together with other conditions - Fix: info command crash (triggered on NetBSD) - Fix: disassember output bug on NetBSD (usigned char < -1 test) - Fix: info osheader and basebase subcommands under MiNT - Fix: debugger history duplicates removal - Fix: expression expanding CPU "pc" for DSP shortcut commands - Fix: expression expansion messing lines in command line history - Remote API debugger commands can also use expression expansion - Both single and double quotes can be used to mark expressions - In addition to text section offset, data and bss section offsets can be given when loading symbols (useful for Devpac symbols) - Output what value was set by options if it's not otherwise shown by UI - New 'cpu' and 'dsp' options to 'history' command for tracing just one of these processors on Falcon - Function arguments are shown in traces for all non-MiNT GEMDOS calls and subset of arguments are now shown also for AES calls (values in intin array and strings in addrin array) - Add NVRAM read & write tracing - Support for the basic Native Features and --natfeats option to control it: http://wiki.aranym.org/natfeats/proposal Tool updates: - New hatari-profiler.py script for post-processing output from profiler's CPU and DSP profiling "save" commands: profile save <filename> dspprofile save <filename> -

Register and symbol names in expressions are replaced by their values. '$' will be TAB-completed to last 'evaluate' command result - "cd" command to change Hatari work directory - "exec" command to execute shell commands (ENABLE_SYSTEM_DEBUG_CALL) - "info" command for showing Atari HW and OS information - "lock" command for setting what information is shown every time on entering the debugger, e.g. disassembly or memdump from given address. "regaddr" argument does that from address pointed by given register - improved register name handling + fixed DSP reg name matching - if both sides of conditional breakpoint condition are identical, replace right side with current value of given expression (e.g. if it's "d0", use current D0 value). If the comparison is for inequality ("!"), output the value & break only when the value changes from the previous value (not original like with other comparisons). Symbols support - ":trace" option to trace/output breakpoint hits without breaking - breakpoints count hits and can be optionally removed after first hit (":once" option) or triggered only on every Nth hit (":<count>" option) - dsp/address command is a shortcut for conditional breakpoints and its argument can be an expression (see "evaluate" above) - Display DSP instructions cycle timings in disasm mode (in cycles) - Configuration options for how many lines to disasm & memdump - Fix VBLs/s counting to work also when --run-vbls isn't used Other changes: - Considerably expanded debugging and hard disk sections in manual - CMake build support, this fixes OSX building and adds support for building Hatari in different directory from the sources - Removed autotools usage/support, added CMake "configure" script - Hatari remote control programs updates (see their own release notes for details) Version 1.3.1 (2009-09-05): --------------------------- This is only a bug fix release: - GEMDOS HD emulation works together with ACSI HD image again - Fix incorrect use of DESTDIR in python-ui installation - Fix memdump/disasm in python-ui Version 1.3.0 (2009-08-16): --------------------------- Emulation: - Hugely improved DSP emulation: - Many more DSP using games/demos/apps work now - Preliminary sound support (e.g. most DSP based .MOD-playback works) - Better cycle counting / accuracy - Many speed improvements - Major rewrite of the internal work/structures of video.c : - Allow to mix 50/60 Hz lines of 508/512 cycles and to keep correct video/cpu sync (fixes TCB in SNY, DI in MindBomb, TEX in Syntax Terror).

See the manual for a list of working STE applications/games/demos. - Hatari can now emulate up to 14 MiB ST RAM instead of only 4 MiB. - Support for parallel port joysticks. - Improved GEMDOS HD emulation (added Fattrib() call). - Adding and removing a GEMDOS or ACSI hard disk should now work correctly. - Re-factoring of the screen conversion functions. - Improved manual: Now with screenshots of the options dialogs. Version 0.70 (2005-06-05): -------------------------- - As always: Code cleanup and bug fixes. - No more crashes when a program tries to access illegal sector numbers. - Improved built-in ROM cartridge. - Rewrote the IO memory emulation code -> Better compatibility. - Support for TOS 1.06 and TOS 1.62 - Emulated CPU can now also be run at 16 MHz or 32 MHz. - File selection dialog scrollable with mouse wheel or cursor keys, too. - Hatari now works on 64-bit host CPUs, too. - Floppy disk images can now be set writable/write-protected in the GUI. - Hatari can now also load a global configuration file (e.g. /etc/hatari.cfg). - Configurable logging functions. Version 0.60 (2004-12-19): -------------------------- - Again some code cleanup and bug fixes. - Window/fullscreen mode is now correctly initialized from the configuration file. - Added --window command line option to force a start in window mode. - Added alert boxes to show warnings, errors and information messages. - PC mouse pointer is now better in sync with the ST mouse pointer. - It's now possible to load an alternative cartridge image file. Version 0.50 (2004-07-26): -------------------------- - A lot of internal code cleanup and bug fixes. - Added a dialog for creating new blank floppy disk images. - The source code has been optimized for better emulation speed. - Added RS232 emulation (still very experimental and not very well tested! It seems not to work reliable yet. Help for debugging is very appreciated!). - Some bugs in the 68000 emulation have been fixed. - The emulator now checks for double bus errors and stops the emulation if necessary (instead of crashing the emulator). - Timer-D is now patched correctly again. - The old font has been replaced by two new fonts so that the GUI now looks better in high resolutions. - The fonts are now linked into the executable. - Added support for DIM floppy disk images. Version 0.45 (2003-10-30): -------------------------- - This is just a minor release on the way to version 0.50. It is not very well tested, so be warned! - New build system (with a "configure" shell script). - A disk image destroying bug in the MSA compression function has been fixed. - It is now possible to redirect the printer output into a file. - Experimental MIDI output support. - Added the possibility to save memory snap shots. - Pending HBL and VBL interrupts are now emulated correctly (I hope). - Some speed improvements. - GEMDOS HD emulation now also works with EmuTOS. Version 0.40 (2003-07-11): -------------------------- - Support for ZIP and GZIP compressed disk images! - Configuration file support for loading and saving the emulator settings. - Hatari now works on machines with Sparc CPUs, too. - Fixed a problem that slowed down the emulator in monochrome mode when using TOS 2.06. - Inverted monochrome mode is now supported, too (some games like Maniac Mansion use this). - Added Mega-ST compatible real time clock (RTC) emulation. - The GEMDOS HD emulation has been improved (it now also works with lower-case file names) and many bugs have been fixed there. - Improved keyboard mapping (added mapping via PC keyboard scancode and via reloadable mapping files). - The screen rendering routines have been generalized (less differences between windowed and fullscreen mode). - Hatari can now be cross-compiled, too. You can even compile it for MiNT now. However, it does not run very well there yet. - Support for RAM TOS images. - Improved memory mapping (the different memory regions should now behave much more like on a real ST). - Improved M68k exceptions (bus errors and exception cycle timings). - Fixed some bugs in the extended VDI resolution mode (now it is working with EmuTOS, too). - Some games that poll the write-protection signal of the FDC to check for disk changes should now be working, too. Version 0.30 (2003-03-12): -------------------------- - Some parts of the code accessed the SR directly to read the IPL - however the UAE CPU core only updates the SR when doing a MakeSR() first. So this is done in the affected code parts now, too. - The IPL wasn't raised when a MFP interrupt occured - fixed now. - Full screen resolution for ST-Low can now be selected from the screen setup dialog. - The IKBD emulation does not longer duplicate joystick fire buttons when a game tries to use both, joystick and mouse - Improved audio timer function - the code should now be a little bit faster. - Resynced Hatari's UAE CPU core with UAE 0.8.22 - this fixes some bugs in 68k instructions like ABCD and SBCD. - Added patches for TOS 2.05 so that this TOS version should now work, too. - Rewrote TOS patching routine. It is much more flexible now. - Removed 0xa0ff opcode for VDI resolutions; using GEMDOS_OPCODE now instead. - Fixed MMU RAM size configuration bug. - Rewrote some more screen conversion functions in C. - When a bus or address error occurred, the PC was often not set to the right exception handler routine. This has been fixed now. Version 0.25 (2002-12-30): -------------------------- - Patches for big endian systems (Spectrum 512 pictures are now working there). - Hatari now also compiles and runs under Mac OS X. - Blitter emulation has been added. - There is now the possibility to save YM or WAV sounds. - Big VDI resolutions (e.g. 800x600) are now supported, too. Version 0.20 (2002-02-18): -------------------------- - Added graphical user interface for configuration of the emulator settings. - Real joysticks can now also be used to simulate the ST joysticks. - Yet another bugfix for BeOS (lseek again...) - Support for hard disk images. Version 0.11 (2001-10-10): -------------------------- - High level (GEMDOS) harddisk emulation. - ST-Med/ST-Low mixed mode now works.

Version 0.05 (2001-06-01): -------------------------- - Joystick emulation via cursor keys. - ST-LOW resolution conversion routine is now working on big-endian machines. Version 0.04 (2001-05-27): -------------------------- - Added Stefan Berndtsson's patch for big-endian machines. Hatari now runs also with non-x86 Linux machines! Thanks Stefan! - Rewrote the ST-LOW resolution conversion routines in C ==> ST-LOW now works! - Added some of the WinSTon patches Paul Bates recently published at the WinSTon BBS (Thanks to Ladislav Adamec for the hint). - Cleaned up the source tree a little bit. Version 0.03 (2001-04-03): -------------------------- - Rewrote some more assembler functions. FDC emulation now works! - SDL Keyboard code finished and included a SDL-Key -> ST-Scancode table. - Added mouse support. Version 0.02 (2001-03-28): -------------------------- - Added very simple SDL support. - Rewrote a lot of assembler functions in C (e.g. intercept.c). - Adapted the UAE CPU.
