E-UAE 0.8.29-WIP4 for PS3 release 8

  • Compiled by using psl1ght v.2 sdk
  • The full uae documentation is stored in the 'docs' subdirectory, here you are reading the ps3 port info.


  • 68000, 68010, 68020, 68040, 68060 processor cores
  • OCS, ECS and AGA chipset
  • amiga hi-res (720x576) graphics resolution in 32bit depth
  • joystick1, joystick2 (2nd joypad required) and mouse emulation
  • options dialog (supports switching of the disk files and more)
  • sound in 48000 kHz
  • keyboard emulation
  • support for usb keyboard and usb mouse
  • support for loading zip and dms floppy images
  • support hor harddisk files
  • save-state saving and loading
  • reads either /dev_usb000/uae/uae.cfg or /dev_hdd0/game/EUAE00829/USRDIR/UAE.CFG configuration during startup!


  • ps3 ready to boot homebrew programs
  • kickstart rom - see docs/readme


  • CROSS - joystick button 1
  • SQUARE - mouse button 1
  • TRIANGLE - mouse button 2
  • CIRCLE - user defined keyboard key
  • press R2 to activate virtual keyboard (vkb), release R2 to hide it. If vkb is shown press left/right digital pad to select the current key. Press the 'up' digital pad button to actually simualte key press of the current key. L1, L2, R1 ann CIRCLE buttons are user defined keys. If vkb is shown press L1 to define L1 button, press L2 to define L2 button and press R1 to define R1 button. Later on (when keyboard is hidden) if you press L1, L2 etc. it will simulate assigned key press / release.
  • joypad 1 (emulates joystick 1 and mouse 1)
  • joypad 2 (emulates joystick 2) - if you want to enable 2-joystick mode, plug-in the second joy pad, restart uae and switch the port mode to "joy-1 & joy-2" in the options dialog.
  • left analog pad emulates either mouse movement (by default) or joystick. Press R3 (right hat) to switch between mouse and joystick control on left hat. Speed-up of the mouse cursor movement can be changed in the options dialog.
  • press Start to enter application menu, you can load ADF files from there.
  • press CIRCLE to exit the application menu

Additional info:

  • The program reads uae.cfg during startup. In this configuration file you should specify all required parameters (memory size, kick rom, initial floppy disk files, cpu core, chipset etc.).
  • Files (kickrom, adf files) are accesible from either usb disk or internal disk.
  • NTSC support: press and hold CIRCLE button during emulator startup to initialize 480 lines /60 Hz video mode. If it doesn't work for you, you can press and hold TRIANGLE button during starup to use the current video mode set in dashboard. Make sure to change emulator options to actually emulate ntsc amiga machine by setting ntsc=true in your configuration file or in options.
  • Save states are stored in your harddisk directory /dev_hdd0/game/EUAE00829/USRDIR/SAVE
  • to use harddisk file: enter options and mount it the "Hard files" submenu. Alternatively you can specify the harddisk in your configuration file by adding the following line: hardfile=read-write,32,1,2,512,/dev_usb000/uae/system.hdf or, if the previous one doesn't work for you: hardfile=read-write,0,0,0,512,/dev_usb000/uae/system.hdf Normally you just need to change the path and filename of the hardfile. The first four numbers are the default ones and should work even if your emulated disk file has a different size. The first set of numbers is ok for hardfiles formatted to OFS (old file system), the second set (zeros) is for harddisk files formatted to RDB (fast file system).

Credits and thanks:

  • UAE team and porters.
  • psl1ght sdk team
  • PS3 homebrew scene

Release log:

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?
