Articles from Epsilon's Classic Amiga Blog
Today I wanted to take a look at the recently released Classic Amiga game Tales of Gorluth on my Amiga 600.
Having completed all the AmigaOS Updates 3 to 6 on my AmigaOS 4.1 Classic install on WinUAE Beta 12, I now have a system ready for the next steps in Part 3!
In Part 2 of setting up AmigaOS4.1 Classic on WinUAE I will look at how to prep and install AmigaOS4.1 Classic on a hard disk file in WinUAE.
By far the exciting news of this week (in my opinion) has been the PPC support implemented in BETA form on the WinUAE Classic Amiga emulation. This enables AmigaOS4.1 Classic to be used under WinUAE on a Windows PC! I had to try this out!
Back in Part 2, I setup the 256 Colour Workbench on AmigaOS 3.1 on my Amiga 600. Although it is a bit slow for day to day Workbench use, I found I can use it very well for running 256 colour screens for programs that can use it - like Photogenics 2.
I read on various Amiga forums about a rival floppy drive emulator for the HxC floppy, called the Gotek floppy drive emulator. It is in reality a Cortex board, but flashed with the right firmware it can be used as a cheap Amiga floppy drive emulator on the Amiga 600 - I found a seller on Ebay selling a pre-flashed Gotek Amiga package with accessories and quickly bought it!
