Amiga Emulation: Getting Started

Recommended Posts

Ok you first of all need Amiga in a Box. This takes all the difficulty out of setting up. http://aiab.emuunlim.com/

 

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.de/j_g_s/blackbox/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.com/installing/index.html

 

Hopefully after all this you should be up and running :D

 

I had to find the "illegal" files but I didn't have to write a guide to use WinUAE (complicated stuff :P ). Woohoo.

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.

It's pretty easy mate. Once you have selected your OS, you just press the tab that says floppy and select the disk images for the game on it.

 

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.com/winuae-help.htm config files. Saves you a lot of time fiddling with options.

ya it works when i loade the game from fresh boot, it loades beneath a steel a sky the intro with no sound then it asks for disk 0 thats disk zero. then it does not do much after that.

Hmmm its a little complex i know you cant do everything for dc so dont worry :P

still i got the amiga working and i thought i would struggle :D

yeah im doing pretty well now got sound working an all, also i put the first for disk in the floppies menu by presing f12~!

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?
