Aemulor Pro sees light of dayBy Chris Williams. Published: 6th May 2004, 18:00:56 | Permalink | Printable
A watched kettle never boils?Finally, the Aemulor team have officially finished off their Aemulor Pro product, which provides a 26bit compatibility layer for Iyonix users. The new Pro version includes support for legacy 2, 4 and 16 colour modes, 26bit sound system and filesystem support, emulation of the old Acorn VIDC/MEMC chipset, which games tend to rely on, and many other bits and pieces.
"Aemulor Pro includes all the features of Aemulor, and adds many new emulation features along with over 50 different compatibility improvements and bug fixes; all of which result in vastly increasing the number of applications which can now be run on the Iyonix PC," Aemulor's Neil Spellings explained earlier today.
Before the advent of RISC OS 5, many assumed that moving the platform to a 32bit OS and processor would leave the existing sea of 26bit only software stranded on aging RiscPCs and similar machines, whereas now, Aemulor appears to have swiftly dismissed all those old fears. Now that the Pro version is out of the way, hopefully the team will set their sights on wrapping up the pre-announced CinoDVD app too.
