I've tried version 1.0 of Ami99 DirectX. Like you've said, slow as toast. As soon as I get home from work (http://www.cyberwarehouse.com) I'll give the newest beta a try.
However, the video is finally displaying completely, not just the background layer. So thanks for pulling through for me.
The next thing that I'd like to have is a GUI/menu system of some sorts. As soon as you get the next stuff working, please work on that.
Let's see... what else would be nice...
Joystick support. Like V9T9, if you could use the mouse as a sorta-joystick, that'd be cool too. (Capture the input like vMac does, although how you get un-captured, I have no idea). With DirectInput, though, you could support more than one gaming device.
Serial/Parallel support would be cool, though I never used them at all. We could use a decent way to get information onto disk images, as well.
Hmm... Oh, full-screen DirectX support would be nice. (ya know, like 640x480 full screen, 320x240, 800x600, so on - put that in the menu system.)
I'll come up with more, I'm sure.
Hey Tursi, unlike MESS, this actually stands a chance of actually becoming a competitor to PC99 and such. Would adding a debugger at this late date be too hard? Pretty soon, with continued help from TI99 users, we could add support for other devices as well.
Thanks for mentioning me in the credits...
P.S. Anyone who wants to form an underground TI cart/disk archive... we'll talk later. Peace.
