Amiga Emulation: Getting Started
Posted 29 November 2002 - 01:42 AM
Download the AIAB.exe or zip. It is around 4.1Mb
Next you need WinUAE. Download the latest verson at the homepage http://www.winuae.net/
Download InstallWinUAE0822R3.exe or the zip archive.
Now you need the amiga Bios and a workbench 3.0/3.1 adf disk image. You can get that at http://home.nikocity...ox/AMIGAWB.HTML
NB: you only need the file called workbench v3.x The rest of the adf (disks) aren't necessary.
And finally you need the Amiga OS kickstart files which you can get at http://www.emu-nation.de/tools.htm
Basically these files relate to what Amiga OS you are operating:
KICK13.ROM = Amiga A500
KICK20.ROM = Amiga A500+/A600
KICK30.ROM = Amiga A1200/A4000
KICK31.ROM = CD32
WinUAE will let you choose which one of these you want to use. So if a game isn't working in one, or needs AGA (ie A1200) then you can just switch them with the click of a button.
Next follow this installation guide http://aiab.emuunlim...ling/index.html
Hopefully after all this you should be up and running
I had to find the "illegal" files but I didn't have to write a guide to use WinUAE (complicated stuff ). Woohoo.

i know, maybe you can do as myself and download always the latest versions
Yeah sorry guys, I added some more stuff to explain about the files. I should have added it before.
Just make sure you have the latest version of Amiga in a Box, AIAB.exe, the latest version of WinUAE which is 0.8.22R3.

But i cant loade games or anything i dont know what to click for games?
How do i make it run games D c what do i click oh knowledgeabile one?
Oh boy i think im running an a1200

You can stick 4 at a time and everytime you need to change disk, just press F12.
Be patient though, it runs the same speed as Amiga, so games don't load up instantly like consoles. Beneath a steel sky was running fine though when I tried it with the A1200 OS rom.
And if you find any games aren't running as you would like then try these http://ale.emuunlim....winuae-help.htm config files. Saves you a lot of time fiddling with options.

Hmmm its a little complex i know you cant do everything for dc so dont worry
still i got the amiga working and i thought i would struggle
Posted 29 November 2002 - 07:20 PM
then it worked, i aint got a floppy drive so ifigure i cant save a game etc.
So i think i need to put it all on a hard drive but dont know how if i get the game running of the hard drive will i be able to save to the hard drive hence washing away the problem that i dont got a floppie?

It would be better on the hard drive its just so dam slooooow.
If you know how to get ti on hard drive D C give us a shout!
Thanks for it all dude.
