MorphOS on emulation may be possible soon

MorphOS is one of my favorite NG Amiga derivatives but currently, it requires either expensive, hard to find PowerPC hardware or old Mac PowerPC hardware.  I’ve personally wished we could run it under emulation like we can now with Classic Amiga and OS4.1FE.

Well, that may soon be possible.  The widely used QEMU emulation software (part of which is powering the PowerPC cpu portion of WinUAE and FS-UAE), may soon enable MorphOS under emulation.

DropBox when using emulation

Okay, about 4 years ago (or so), I wrote up a quick guide for using Dropbox transparently from within Windows emulation, so that it looks like a native app on the Amiga side.  It was a very simple guide with linked screenshots.

As I’m planning to get Amikit X soon, I’ll be following my own guide soon to get desktop access to syncing with dropbox on the windows system.

68k Game ports

This page may not be news to some, but the author of the 68k version of Netsurf has a page with games ported to classic amiga.

AMIGA alive software: rewincy v0.8 - window and screen cycling

Our second - still rather tiny - software release is out. It's rewincy v0.8, a Workbench commodity for AmigaOS2.0 or higher. Rewincy will add Windows-"Alt-Tab"-like functionality to your Workbench: cycle through windows and screens, and zip windows, using your keyboard.

You can configure keys and colors, and run it from CLI or Workbench alike. Rewincy is based on M. Cortese's "Altabber", with added features, and just like Altabber it's freeware, of course. It has been cross-compiled from Linux to AmigaOS with vbcc, sources and makefile are included.

AMIGA alive software: rentp v0.4 - NTP time synchronization

Our first - tiny, admittedly - software release it out. It's rentp v0.4, a Network Time Protocol time synchronization utility for AmigaOS2.0 or higher.

Here's a usage example:

rentp -o120

...will sync time from Fedora's timeserver, using 120 mins.
UTC offset (=Germany summer daylight saving time). UTC
offset should be supplied, otherwise time will probably be
wrong (unless you live in UTC zone 0).
