Steem SSE 3.8.1


Steem SSE is a new version of Steem based on this release. It incorporates new features, some of them based on the Hatari emulator, some on various internet discussions and documentation.

Steem SSE aims to become the #1 STF/STE emulator. There's no limitation in the original Steem structure that would make that goal unreachable. For the moment, only the Windows build is available.

'SSE' stands for 'Steven Seagal Edition'. Steven Seagal is a well known Aikido grandmaster, action movie star, musician and playboy.


v3.8.1 Features

  • No display if bit 0 of Sync Mode register is set... YEAH!!! you've been dreaming of this!

v3.8.1 Internal

  • Blitter remove timing hack of v3.8.0 in blit mode
  • CPU trace utility uses its official 'tpend' latch
  • Video counter reckoning at last separated from rendering 
  • "Extended monitor" refactoring

v3.8.1 Bugfixes

  • Larger initial disk manager window size
  • CPU HALT: reset switch should still work
  • YM2149: argh!, disable poorly implemented "dephasing" (Kid Kong)
  • Eliminate double checking side overscan (useless CPU load)
  • Large display mode refactoring, correcting some raster effects  (Backlash -TEX, etc.)
  • Fix 413x275 display mode, no stretch, in medium resolution
  • Fix 413x275 display mode, scanlines
  • Don't enable keyboard click if a program disabled it (Pump ab das Bier by The Confederacy)
