What's the best to use these days? I used to use MacUAE but I don't have a Mac anymore. Is WinUAE the best bet on PC? Also if someone could furnish me with Kickstart ROMs and the best place to get games, that would be awesome.

My brain said fsuae was something that was a thing.

I'm not sure how accurate my brain is.

FSuae is indeed a something. It's the one I use and it's come a long way in recent years so yeah, I'd go with that.

As for ROMS and such like, I'll post something when I get home and have access to all my bookmarks. There's a French site which I normally use but I can't remember the name of it.

I actually went to the effort of getting the times and disk images of my Amiga(s).

What a ball ache that was.

I always used to use WinUAE, that was a few years ago though. I have all the Kickstart ROMs archived out and a large collection of Amiga 'ROMs' (I'm buggered if I can remember the proper name for them now, the floppy disc images anyway.....), all on my home network though so can't appraise at the moment, I'll take a look when I get home.

Runs to a few gig as I recall, so easy enough to post out on a USB key if you want them.

FS-UAE is nice and easy to use. Nice interface. WinUAE is the best IMHO for the sheer amount of options.

ROMs are got from

http://www.lemonamiga.com/

or maybe

http://www.emuparadise.me/Amiga_ROMs/4

or there are torrents with literally* every single program, game and utility ever written for the Amiga

*not literally

Yep. I'm sure zaphod tried to help me find it a couple of years ago, but to no avail. I contacted the maker of one of the YT videos but I got no response. :(

FS-UAE for sure, especially because it has an Arcade launcher which works great with the SteamLink.

I also have a full set of WHDLoad installs if you want 'em.

I'll chuck something in Members Only when I've figured out where to put the 4GB file.

Although I'm now second guessing myself as to whether it is a full set - it wasn't that long ago I grabbed it, so it should be - the danger is if I've pruned stuff out that I figured I wouldn't want ;)

Sorry Lonewolves, I went to see my dad last night and didn't get back till late and once I had all my jobs done, I didn't have time for anything else but... I'll get on tonight.

Unless you'r sorted of course? I've seen Gazchaps files but do you still need the bios files?

Find out if you've got common interests, look at both circles of friends to see if there's anyone mutual?

You certainly shouldn't share them with me if they contain the A1200 one.

Haha. I wonder if I've got to open ports or something, it's the first torrent I've created and I'm using qbBittorrent which I thought would do everything with uPNP.

I have all the Kickstart ROMs etc. too if anyone needs those.

The direct link downloads to about 300MB for me, then fails.

Definitely FS-UAE with https://oagd.net/ integration. It also makes loading WHDload games easier.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that. Get an account on OAGD, sign in to it with FS-UAE and scan the WHDLoad games in my zip, and it'll put them all in nice easily launchable setups for you.

FS-UAE: Amiga emulator based on WinUAE but (IMO) better - certainly more accessible to non-spods.
WHDLoad: A program that allowed you to install games to a hard drive, provided that you had the original game and someone had written a "slave" for that game to make it work on a hard drive.

The stuff I've posted in M/O is just a collection of all (or most, I expect, as I may have pruned) known WHDLoad games ready to play using FS-UAE :)

Just do what Gazchap said. It's very simple actually. My main problem with WHDload games is that i don't get to see awesome cracker intros.
