AmiArcadia has been covermounted on Amiga Future (Germany), and has made the Aminet Top Ten, and is the most downloaded emulator on Aminet. The supported languages are currently English, French, German and Italian. AmiArcadia and WinArcadia were each awarded ratings of 5 stars by emuita.it. WinArcadia is recommended by NonMESS as the best emulator of these machines: "WinArcadia is the clear winner. For one, the Arcadia 2001's sound is much more clearly reproduced and is actually in tune with this emulator, compared to its competition. Second, WinArcadia gets credit for its use of the standard windowing GUI, which aside from other benefits allows for drag-and-drop support. Finally, I've run side-by-side tests of just about every game available for the system...highly accurate. Check this one out. WinArcadia is far more advanced than the MESS driver, with near-perfect emulation and tons of support for extras like save-state and graphics scaling. Definitely worth a look."


Changes since 7.11:

"Step over subroutine" command.

"Echo PIPBUG I/O to printer?" option.

PIPBUG sound simulation (WinArcadia only).

Miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes.
