I did a quick test.

Apart from the reported HostFS problem, I encountered a
reproducible crash, with both interpreter and recompiler.

I did a full CDVDBurn recompile, which means a lot of I/O.
I took the taskwindow where the compile ran and put it to
the bottom of the screen (a few pixels off-screen). I then
clicked the window resize button and dragged it quickly down
-> crash. I will try if RPCEmu 0.8.15 also exhibits this.

Other things:
The new "don't change host screenmode on fullscreen" solves
one of the annoying features of the old version where returning to
the Windows desktop triggered an info popup which informed that
you should really use the display's native resolution - which was
already used of course.

I like the new warning dialog that RPCEmu will be reset if you change
the settings. One minor niggle: the warning dialog is centered to
the display and not to the RPCEmu window.

Is it still sensible to have RPC with ARM610 being the default
machine? Does the recompiler work correctly with this config - ISTR
reading that it needs StrongARM config to be active?

Host mouse following mode still exhibits a minor problem when
e.g. a RISC OS error window moves the RISC OS mouse pointer inside
the restricted area. It is irritating that the host mouse pointer
is not also silently moved. On the other hand, I agree that the
host mouse pointer must not be restricted to the RO pointer

Thanks so far!

Have fun
