Could you please give me some clues on how to run it properly?  I spent some time on trying, no result.

I got Nokia E65 s60v3fp2 which is close to your N95 system, maybe less in terms of memory and CPU.  I managed to install the software and placed the kick file.  The point is I cannot make any adf/adz game work, after running emulation the screen goes blank...

EDIT* Can you also provide tests of battery lifetime while on emulation?

Did anybody else manage to try and run it??


Hmm, after a quick look, your CPU is lower but working memory is the same as N95 I think.

Firstly I wouldn't worry about an adf, just try and run it without to see if you get the kickstart screen.  I used 1.3 and you must ensure it is called KICK13.ROM.

Do you get the on screen display when you run it?  Maybe you have just been unlucky with adfs and compatibility.  Track down nebulus.  I can confirm this works on both 512k and 1Mb chip RAM.

Good luck!

Works fine with my E71 with KS 1.3 (just cat'ed the same 1.3 image twice to get the 512KB img). A500 KS 2.05 or 3.1 doesn't appear to work. I also had to use some magic keycombo to rotate the display 90 degrees.

E71 has a 369MHz ARM 11 CPU so it's pretty fast. If things run too slow the sound gets choppy though. Another problem is that there is no volume control, the sound output is at 100% all the time.

Of the demos I tried Enigma by Phenomena works pretty much perfect, including sound. Some demos refuse to work altogether, for example Extension by Pygmy Projects. I believe this might be due to missing ranger ($c00000) memory. Sometimes the emulation just crashes unexpectedly, too.

In all, it's a very good initial release.

Still doesn't work :-(.  I got together both proper kick files, again, ran an adf game - or just ran the blank UAE.  Black screen all the time.

My mobile has 220 MHz ARM and 50 MB RAM (35 MB free).

@diskdoctor

Do you even get the UAE4all welcome screen?  This should be the first thing to appear.  If not it could be a problem with your kickstart.  Try running it with no kickstart file at all.  You should get the welcome screen, and then a screen with the boing ball in the background and text saying something like "no kickstart file".

If you do the above, and still get a black screen it could be you don't have enough RAM on your phone.  Have you shut down as many other things on your phone as possible such as bluetooth/wifi and any other apps?

Please report back.  Good luck!

I do get UAE4ALL welcome, by saying blank screen I meant black screen after hitting 'run' actually.

RAM you say... Some time ago I slaughtered all applications that resided in RAM so the phone should be pretty much clean now.  GsmArena says it's 50MB RAM phone, my memory check says '20MB in use, 41MB free' so should work fine according to the respective forum.  And I run it on anything else shut.

BTW I scanned this Symbian forum and found no answer 'xcept those I got here.  Thanks, again.

I agree with NitrousB.  I reckon it can only be the kickstart image then.

I'm not sure where I got mine, it was on my desktop machine.  I think I took it from an old Retro computing magazine coverdisc that had a stripped down version of AmigaForever on it.

If I were you I'd get a torrent of it.  So long as you own the physical ROM I wouldn't be bothered ethically speaking.

Again, best of luck!

Well, that's what I just did:

Mac-Mini:~ martas$ cat amiga-os-130.rom amiga-os-130.rom > kick13.rom
Mac-Mini:~ martas$ cat amiga-os-130.rom amiga-ext-130-cdtv.rom > kick13a.rom
Mac-Mini:~ martas$ cat amiga-ext-130-cdtv.rom amiga-os-130.rom > kick13b.rom

Then I used these on 1 floppy-no music-512 KB settings.  I tested UGH! and Lotus2.

Same.  But how weird!  When this black screen halts I checked the memory - it all turned to take only 1MB which is impossible.  Seems that UAE is not following its emulation routine.  Must be kick then.  BTW the whole case sucks, I think the author should fix it in the next release since AF roms do not work.

I'll get a 512 kick then.  Thanks for advice.

I dont think this version is an actual release, i believe he just allowed one forum to release it as a kinda tech/wip demo, i am sure he will fix loads of stuff and release an official build soon.

Yeah, everybody says so.  I don't like this 'beta testing' trend.  Instead of wasting my time, I'm willing to pay for saving it and pay it well.  That's why I hate this open-source 'try really hard and you might eventually get it working' phylosophy.

But to the point.  A friend of mine on the net borrowed me a 512KB kick file.  Now all I got the app crashes on/during boot (grey fading screen).  I might have my firmware updated soon so maybe this will help.

I have UAE4ALL on my Nokia N95-3 and it is GREAT!  I played Shadow of the Beast yesterday at a very smooth frame rate.  I expect to see this program refined and hope to see hard file support.  This has been an incredible month for N-series phones.  1st win3.1, then Windoze 98, now Amiga!  
    I think I recall the maker of UAE saying NEVER will he port UAE to Symbian, all I have to say is SLACKER!  someone beat ya to it!
