This is pretty cool - will have to give this a try, i've got an A1200 gathering dust in my attic waiting for it's true value to be realised once it becomes a fully fledged antique!

I've even got an old PC setup with A&B floppy drives to convert my 2000+ strong collection of 3.5inch disks!

Ahh the good ol' days - when games looked like *^% but played so well - I remember the days spend getting that damn snake to eat without crashing into its own tail!

Can't wait for the Spectrum ZX81 emulator (don't remember seeing one being released yet)

I don't think they will work as they are encrypted, maybe if you decrypt them.

i hope that we will get 060 support. Many of the cool demos only works smooth with 060 cpu.

Although i dont think that we will get PPC support, that would be awesome. Can't wait to play with this, though i dont think that it will replace my A1200 060 on my desk. But then again, my PS3 is hooked up to a 42" LED screen, my A1200 is not

BUT NOTHING BEATS A REAL AMIGA!!!! but will give the uae a go and hope for the best.

By the way is the uae compatible with the kickstarter roms from the Amiga Forever DVD??

I had a similar problem with UAE dunping me back to to the xmb. My problem was a duplicate of the cfg file in the UAE folder that the pkg created on the ps3 file system. Once I edited that version, and deleted the usb equivelent, UAE worked well. I've tried both 1.3 and 3.1 kickstart rom on my fat jap 500gb without a hitch.

Its a great project, even Octamed was usable. Hopefully hd support and maybe an increase in resoloution will be supported later. Workbench could be a nice easy alternative until linux is back.

I've already said I got the rom so yes.

It's also a PAL console.

A lot of reports that this doesn't work on NTSC consoles.

Oh man, good memories when all my school mates wanted to study Sensible Soccer at my house, i had two arcade joysticks books for them to hold, it was hours of hard studies at my Amiga 600...

I couldnt get it working. It installs but when I run it, it does nothing, just jumps straight back to XMB.

I edited the CFG file to point to the ADF and the ROM so not sure whats wrong?
