Amiga again, sorry!...



  • I know, i know: Amiga and C64 will be in 4.1, and 4.1 will be in beta when 4.0 will be in stable, and it will be out when it will be ready, etc.
    I would like to ask, if you know, if Amiga support in Recalbox 4.1 will be "smart" or if we're going to pass through uae4arm menu to launch games.
    I think it would be a nice thing to implement out of the box something like this --> https://github.com/Douggernaut/RetroPieAssistant/tree/master/Amiga, with a "Scraper" that scans Rom dir and creates config files for each game to launch directly from ES (and uae4arm menu as optional for full costumization)... Please please please tell me you're scheduling something similar!...

    Dude, i have my own idea about how to make that, it should be even better. But uae4arm is a mess when you talk abt config files, i'm tryibg to sort this out

    Looks like your link casys a light on some things that i'm still trying to catch with ^^

    @subs It seems also pretty complementary to what we did with @ironic for games in hd format so fell free to ask us about that (he's the brain about amiga I was the legs :op) or test the sample code on my github account (voljega)
    It's still working on 4.0 although there is a strange issue where the emulator sometimes relaunch itself without conf after quitting it

    I'm also willing to help to convert that code to configgen if needed I have more free time these days

    I was a "small" Amiga demomaker, i love Amiga, i known/done a lot of things about Amiga and i think Amiga is the best machine ever made.

    It's very easy "for an old Amiga power user" to implement uae4arm in EmulationStation ans launcher a game from menu. It works like a charm.

    Now, i think, use ADF (or other disk file system) is a pain in 2016.
    We must use Amiga WHD file format. All best Amiga games can be launched with Amiga WHD driver.

    Uae4arm is in constant evolution but isn't perfect.

    Now, if you just want to play Amiga games, you can use Happiga
    Or wait a few time to have Amiga emulation on Recalbox.

    Or, play Amiga games on a real Amiga ;)

    So, just wait a few time, the Recalbox team works a lot to give you the best emulation, but it's a very very hard job.

    And remember, Amiga games use sevel resolution (320x200, 320x240, 320x256...), it isn't easy to make an auto config file to get the best emulation screen.



  • @ironic a friend of mine made an awesome ahk program to move all needed files to launch .uae whdolad files.
