 +  * Why am I still using VC++ 2005? I dunno, I just like the IDE more than the 2015 version and use it when I can. VC++ 2015 should work too but you'd have to update the solution file, I didn't try it
 +  * I made a [[http://​community.arduboy.com/​t/​proton-arduboy-simulator-for-windows-visual-c-2005/​1476|thread on arduboy.com]] if you have a question or comment about this

 +  * June 2nd 2016:  Now plays simple tones (to use, Switch build to "SDL Debug GL", you'll need SDL 2 libs), display more accurately simulated, supports HTML5 web version, just run /​html5/​build_release.bat to make it. ([[proton:​html5_setup|More info on HTML5 setup]])
 +  * June 7th 2016: Can now compile both arduboylib 1.1 and 1.2 code, 1.1 is now default and ardubreakout was changed to the 1.1 version. Should define RT_ARDU_DEV_BRANCH for 1.2 code, will fix timing to match 1.2
 +  * June 8th 2016: Landscape mode support: ArduboySim'​s App.cpp adjusted, uncomment #define RT_ARDU_LANDSCAPE and you can play sideways
