Nowadays WinUAE (or UAE) could work fine on more sophisticated mobile phones if anyone cared to port it 2005-06-06 10:20 am Wrong. If you like smooth scrolling of your favourite games then you should have the memory bus of a gigahertz class pc. Show me the mobile phone that can provide you with that. 2005-06-06 10:36 am I doubt it, especially if you know the Atari ST emulator STeem currently runs on only the highest end PDA’s and consider that the Amiga is actually a more sophisticated machine than the ST. 2005-06-06 10:41 am UAE runs on the Linux Zaurus too, not quite a mobile phone but the smallest system I’ve seen it running on. However, I haven’t seen it running the demos at the full 50Hz, I think it was dropping every second frame. But still pretty neat. So, you want a portable Amiga? Get a Zaurus! 2005-06-06 12:31 pm Am I the only one that’s frustrated with these NewsForge ‘reviews’ that don’t actually give any review-like information? It’s only slightly more verbose than a file_id.diz 2005-06-06 1:16 pm UAE != WinUAE, the latter one is far more advanced :/ 2005-06-06 1:33 pm Check out e-uae ( http://www.rcdrummond.net/uae/ ) which attempts to bring most WinUAE features to useful operating systems. 2005-06-06 3:31 pm Check out e-uae ( http://www.rcdrummond.net/uae/ ) which attempts to bring most WinUAE features to useful operating systems. But WinUAE is already available on a useful operating system. It seems like a lot of effort is being wasted that could be better spent on improving WinUAE. 2005-06-06 7:20 pm Jerzu: The emulation isn’t that good. I’ve got a real Amiga right here, and while the PC Emulation is of course faster (thankx to my 2Ghz PC), it comes far from the soft and fluid feel of the real thing. I do remember when everyone said it could be done though. Funny stuff. None the less, there is still to replacement for the real thing. 2005-06-06 9:10 pm … it actually couldn’t be done. well, i havent seen many 2GHz pcs in 1998… of course on my 3GHz pc it runs like a dream and it is nice to play turrican 3 again. 2005-06-06 9:48 pm Ya I ment couldn’t be done. And you are right, the PC was still only single tasking and stuck to 256 colors in those days. So back then it was impossible. 2005-06-07 12:16 am “But WinUAE is already available on a useful operating system. It seems like a lot of effort is being wasted that could be better spent on improving WinUAE.” Is it portable to non-Windows operating systems? If not, effort is not being wasted. 2005-06-07 9:43 am It was already good on my Duron600 AFAIK…so that gives us year 2000 2005-06-10 2:35 pm Scrolling is quite smooth, but only if your screen refreshrate is synced with the Amiga hardware (PAL or NTSC, 50/60 Hz). Hook up to a TV and check it out.
