Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Amiga environments as included in Amiga Forever consist of different components:

Low-level emulation of Classic Amiga hardware

Original Amiga OS (running on top of the emulated hardware)

Classic Amiga software (running in the original Amiga OS)

 

The Amiga emulation and OS components implement Amiga technologies which have been licensed by the Amiga companies for use in Amiga Forever.

Speaking of "emulation", it is sometimes believed that the Amiga OS itself is emulated. This is not the case in Amiga Forever, which includes different versions of the original Amiga OS. On top of this, Amiga Forever includes a multitude of preinstalled application software components.

The Amiga OS consists of a set of original ROM and OS files which run on emulated Amiga hardware. Amiga Forever uses primarily two hardware emulation engines: UAE and Fellow. The Amiga OS files included on Amiga Forever are compatible with various ports of UAE and Fellow, most of which are included on Amiga Forever itself.

It is only the combination of full hardware emulation and original Amiga OS that makes it possible to achieve maximum compatibility with thousands of existing Classic Amiga software applications. Because the emulation software includes the option to adjust the functionality of the emulated CPU (e.g. 68000, 68020, etc.) and custom chips (e.g. OCS, ECS, AGA), compatibility with older programs is often higher than what would be possible with a "real" Amiga.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed 31 July 2009
Verified Purchase
I'm not entirely convinced the item I received matched the item description - the lack of a picture certainly doesn't help, but anyway...

Regardless, I'm not impressed with this. I tried to get this to work with Windows XP, and after 1 hour I hadn't got anywhere. Fellow doesn't seem to work at all, and WinUAE will boot - but crashes when it tries to load any game. The fact there there seems to be no manual or guide on the disc doesn't help matters - especially when it says that there is a step-by-step guide on the back of the box. You are probably better off just visiting Cloanto's website if you really feel the need for an Amiga Emulator.

A massive waste of 13.
